new item for JDV! {decorative vinyls}

yep, yet another new thing that i've started creating and designing, i'm still playing around with my new Silhouette vinyl cutting machine and learning the ropes but here are some of the new fun things i've created with it!

yes, i know i've shown this before from the Chanel baby shower... but i used my Silhouette to create the "Chanel-esque" font for this decorative frame.
i had posted a photo of the next project to my facebook page, but here's the back story:
 after looking around our place to see what i could embellish with vinyl, i realized after we threw out the junk food we used to keep in these glass jars... i thought hey, if they're going to sit empty, they might as well look cute!
and since i didn't know what was going to go in them i just decided to number them... and hey they look cute, so it works! the protein powder was a little easier to figure out what to do with it.

.   .   .   .   .

and yes i did figure out what colorful things i could put in the jars rather than "carbs" which we've eliminated from our diet... i was cleaning out one of our cupboards and thought we have SO MANY tea packets {and the boxes take up so much space}, so that's the one on the left... and all of my fun cupcake liners {since i'm not doing much baking right now} i thought i'd display them for me to enjoy even though i'm not enjoying one of my favorite junk foods {cupcakes}, at least i can enjoy the color!
 ... that's what i keep telling myself at least...

next i created this monogramed plate - just picked up this super cute Ralph Lauren plate at TJ Max, then did the "B" for our last name & did a second {darker} vinyl for the year we were married!
looks pretty dern {yes dern} cute mixed with the hub's law books and my blue coral {which is in a cloche on the shelf to the right of it} didn't include it in the shot, sorry! 

close up... and yeah i shot these at night so excuse the lame shadows everywhere

and then this frame was a gift to a mommy to be who loved the Chanel shower i had been apart of, so i created this one for their sweet new addition coming May 18th {or sooner}.
yep, this one's a vinyl too!

the great thing about this new cutter of mine is that i can cut vinyl, paper, cardstock, and heat transfers for t-shirts, bags, or any fabric really!... and even better, since i'm obsessed with my font collection, this cutter works with my whole font library!  i just can't wait to create more uniquely personalized vinyl decor pieces for you all!

...ok, now it's back to work for me...



  1. how about a "Schron - est. 1968" on a cool plate of my choice!

  2. i think that can be arranged, anything for my mom =)
