Beachy Summer Pallet Art!

I have a special giveaway to kick off the US Independence Day week:

My favorite crafting tool — the Silhouette!


You probably know how much I love and use my Silhouette, that’s why it’s my favorite crafting tool. Here a little project I made with it last week — Easy DIY Summer Pallet Art.

I was over at my friends house a couple of weeks ago and she showed me a sign she had found from a high-end online store. The sign was sold out and I mentioned to her that I thought it would be easy to recreate. So I took that idea and I put my own spin on it by changing up the wording the colors of the piece. I used my Silhouette Studio Designer Software to create this project. I will be sharing the full tutorial later in the week!

This month Silhouette has a SUPER discount on their Portraits as well as their Cameos and their Silhouette Studio software. The Silhouette Studio software is fabulous beacause it lets you bring in images to your Silhouette and allows you to tranform them into cuttable images. My friend Heather at Whipperberry has a great video tutorial on how to do that here. 

And here’s a video that shows what the Silhouette Designer Software can do:


Tatertots and Jello readers can get this exclusive discount by using this special link and the code TATER at checkout!

If you don’t have a Silhouette, it really is a fabulous tool. I think you will love it.
