I have two projects to share with you today. I used Happily Ever After, Dreams Come True, From My Kitchen and Nate's ABCs.

For my first project I created a display for my daughters room. It, of course, had to be princesses! As you can see I used just the silhouettes but I didn't use the blackout feature. I choose, instead, to take on the tedious and time consuming process of hiding all of the contour lines. I did this because the blackout feature didn't leave the thin details of the fingers and arms that I wanted.

I used DCWV Jewel cardstock for the background paper. The pink paper is Recollections and the simple white frames were purchased at Michael's.

Below is my cart, cut and size list for project #1.

Happily Ever After:
Cinderella - 4"

Dreams Come True:
Belle and Beast - 6.5"
Ariel - 4"
Jasmine - 4"
Dreams Come True - 4.5"

My second project is for the kitchen. I used my gypsy to design this vinyl decal. I ended up cutting the silverware and plate separately so that it could be bigger than my mat would allow. The word EAT is cut out of the vinyl so the wall shows through.

Below is my cart, cut and size list for project #2.

From My Kitchen:
Plate and Silverware - 10.5"

Nate's ABCs:
EAT - 2.75"

It was my birthday yesterday and to celebrate I'm hosting a giveaway! Click here to enter.
