You know that I love my Silhouette and that I seriously use it all the time.
Case in point? These adorable {and easy} kitchen signs…
Thank you to Over the Big Moon for the inspiration!
Ok so, after searching the Silhouette store for the images I wanted, I went to work!

Be grateful kitchen sign
I already had the boards from a previous project  so after deciding I needed a change, I went to town. Painting the boards white first, I then used black silhouette vinyl to make the stencil.

    I would make tons of home decoration projects. The first thing I would like to make is a sign that has dates down it. My hubby’s b-day, mine, our anniversary, and then our kids b-days. Our 27th anniversary is a week from today so I would love to be able to make one to hang in my house.

  2. says

    I would love to embellish and personalize my sewing projects. We’re expecting our first addition this June, and I’ve been busy making burping cloths, diapers and clothes that I’d love to add some details to them. I’d also love to make some home decor for our kitchen, nursery, office/library, and guest bedroom. Thanks for hosting! :) mfrapp_83 {at} yahoo {dot} com

    I think I’d start by making some personalized/monogrammed signs for our house. After that, I’d just play with it for a bit. :-)

  4. says

    Those are so cool! Now I totally want some! And since I just bought a new silhouette Cameo, I can have them! If I won the portrait, I’d give it to my mum or sister so they can use it for their business!

    The possibilities seem endless. But I definitely have a few rooms far enough along in our home rennovation that could use wall art.

  8. says

    I love your cute decor ideas and I REALLY would love one of these machines. I have wanted one for about 3 years, since I first learned of them! I would cut vinyl and fabric and try just about anything!

  9. says

    (Hopefully this isn’t a dupe, since I was having trouble commenting from my phone). I have had OODLES of ideas for projects (many involving typography, cuz I love me the words) that I’ve had to shelve because I don’t have the time to trace and cut by hand…though, I have done so for gifts before -EXTREMELY time consuming! Lots and lots of signs, gifts, home decor projects!!!

  10. says

    I would for sure make kitchen signs with the Portrait as well as all the other ideas I’ve been seeing on Pinterest and blogs such as this!!

  15. says

    What a cool idea! Wow, if I won it I *might* just have to take the day off work to make really cool new signs for our farm. “This way to the chickens!”, “Fresh Eggs”, “Corn on the Cob”. How fun would those look?!

  16. says

    I want one of these so badly. This would actually allow me to be able to work from home so that I could homeschool my daughter. Ah, dreams.

  43. RobinH says

    There are so many ideas for using a Silhouette buzzing around in my head, it’s hard to settle on just one. Appliques for some much needed new sofa pillows, or jazzing up the hat boxes I use for storage in my sewing room, customizing the face of my old kitchen clock, stencils for etching the boring mirror in the powder room…see what I mean? It’s an idea tsunami!

  44. says

    I would love to start scrapbooking again! Also, making some decals would be fun! An extra plus…using it for my work, I’m a toddler teacher :) Thanks for the chance!

  45. Limey says

    You always give such good tutorials – thanks! Not sure what I’d do first if I had a Silhouette, but it’s obvious the possibilities are endless…

  46. hautemama says

    Love your signs! One of those days I’m gonna have me one of those Silhouettes!!!

    I have a huge list of signs that I want to make!

  48. Kimberly says

    I would start with making some custom gifts and signs from around the house – like our favorite quotes, song lyrics, or names!

  49. says

    You know those plain plastic glasses that come with a screw-on lid with a straw? I would personalize those as gifts! That is just one of many ideas I have.

  50. says

    If I have a silhouette portrait would use it to make labels for all my classroom cabinets,including all six kitchen’s in my culinary room and make Vinyl decals for the wall. Personally I would use the vinyl letters to make signs for my wedding.

  51. says

    Ack! Those signs are ridiculously cute! I would be putting super cute labels on EVERYTHING if I had a Silhouette!
