Shamrock Burlap Banner1

For my shamrock banner that I hung on my front door, I used the sketch feature!  {Yes, I know…I put a banner on my door and not a wreath!  I am such a rebel!}  I used some clean line shamrock shapes and then converted them to sketch designs and used the sketch pens to put them on paper.  I cut out the scallops and the green backing circles and applied to burlap pennants.  A little hot glue with some ribbon and I was set!  To show you how awesome the sketch feature is…I made this little screencast with the full tutorial!  {I hope I don’t always sound so weird in real life!}

  2. I am dying to have one of these machines. I have a small cricut but I hear through the grapevine that this is a better machine all around. I am getting ready to make a craft room for myself in an empty room in our home. Please please please…..let me win! LOL

  3. I would love to make some cute onesies for our baby girl due this June! She’s our first addition to our little family and I could use a Silhouette for nursery decor, part planning and scrapbooking! So many things I’d love to do! Thanks for hosting! :)

  4. Oh goodness, I don’t even know. I just heard about this silhouette thing recently, so I’d get some ideas on pinterest!

  5. I have found more needs for the Silhouette than I can even begin to mention, other than to say I want to make a big sign that my brother wants that say Shut the front door! He loved that when I showed him!

    Since your giveaway ends soon is it safe to ask when you are going to announce the winner? I didn’t see that part anywhere.
