DIY Pep Talk Hand Towel

Thank you Colgate® for sponsoring this post.   With my recent move to NYC I feel like my whole life has been put in a bottle and someone is shaking it furiously. Everything feels a little harder and a little crazier than normal, but every day I’m feeling a little better about this city, this apartment,...

    This Watercolor Easter Eggs post was compensated by Silhouette America. All opinions expressed are ours alone.  The other day I was browsing Pinterest looking at all of the beautiful hand-painted Easter eggs. Every year when we are decorating eggs I wish I could paint beautiful scenes or flowers on my eggs and then display them. However, my art...

    DIY Nesting Dolls

    Ever since I had a little girl I have loved making girly toys for my her. I don’t know if it’s because I had a couple years of spiderman everything and I was really ready for some pink, or if I’m just trying to relive my childhood toy fantasies, but pretty toys are one of my...

    DIY “Go, Girl!” Felt Tote

    It’s our first post of 2017 and like any self-respecting blogger we are going to make this one inspirational, dang it. However, if I’m being real, I have never been one to sit down and actually write resolutions/goals in the new year, but I love the sense that the new year is a fresh start...

      This tote would be prefect to use as a work tote. Happy New Years!

      hi.. i tried creating this following your instructions. however, my silhouette Portrait just keeps cutting the square around my design, instead of the design itself. any ideas why this is happening? I wrote the words myself and imported it as a jpg into the library. Thanks for any help or suggestions you could offer! 😀ReplyCancel

        Hi Isabelle! I’m not sure why that would be happening! When you click “Send to Silhouette” and the software outlines what will be cut, does is show a square around the text?ReplyCancel

        If the file is a jpeg Silhouette will not recognize it as a cut file. You will need to use the trace tool and trace the words. That will make the file cuttable. If you’re not sure how to use the trace feature Youtube has lots of videos on it. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

          thanks for the tip!! 😀 is there any file extension for images where this will work? png?ReplyCancel

      • Isabelle ChanJanuary 6, 2017 - 5:33 am

        Hi, yes! When I click send, a red box appears around the whole pattern. I’ve tried various settings and sometimes the blade moves across the machine and comes back to rest without doing anything. And on all occasions, Studio says that cutting is complete/successful.
        Thanks for taking the time to reply. Really appreciate that!ReplyCancel
