Bling It or Cut It or Both: Witches Hat

I have been busy making some Halloween files, love Halloween.  This one is a witch's hat that can be cut in any medium at any size using the svg file, or put on a shirt outlined in rhinestones or cut all in stones, it is up to you.  Here is what we have today:

You can dowload the witch hat, non-rhinestoned version here in svg or here in dxf.  Sorry, the rhinestone files are only available in svg format.  The rhinestone outline can be downloaded here in svg and the all rhinestone file, with weeding boxes, can be downloaded here in svg format.

Remember to re-size the rhinestone files in your cutting program before you cut them.  The correct size for 10 ss stones is part of the file name.  If you lock your proportions when you re-size, you should only have to re-size one dimension.  If you want the svgs in dfx format, you can see this post for how to convert an svg to dxf so you can use it in your standard version of the Silhouette Studio software.

Happy cutting!! (and blinging)

A Tree Wall Decal

My daughter saw this at one of the discount stores and wanted it on the wall in her room:
Of course we couldn't just buy the one she saw, that would be way too easy.  She wanted some color to match her room, so this is what we ended up with:

The tree is about 4' tall and 3' wide.  A few more things on the walls and we will be good to go!  Now we just need to find the right shade of pink and make her another one for her room at her dad's house.  Practice makes perfect.  Thanks for looking!!

Halloween Bling

Here is a little Halloween bling for you.  When you import it into your program make sure you re-size it to 7.641" wide x 4.108" tall.  This is the size it was made for, and will be perfect for 10ss sized stones.  The size of the file is part of the file name, so you don't need to write it down.  I am a big fan of keeping it simple.
I think this would be a great on a t-shirt with a clever saying with it.  Bite Me is the first thing that pops to mind, but I know there must be other clever sayings that aren't so negative sounding.  Can you think of any fun sayings for this one??  Download the file here is svg format and here in dxf (for Silhouette Studio standard edition users) format.
If you would like the file in non-stoned format, you can download it here in svg and here in dxf.

If It Doesn't Move (and even if it does) It Needs Bling!!

With the long weekend I had a little bit of free time to complete a couple rhinestone projects.  Gotta love the bling.  First one is a shirt I made for myself with a file I purchased from The Rhinestone World.  I think I bought it as a Sunday night mega deal some time ago, or on a day where the daily deal was $5 off.  Anyway, I love how it turned out, pictures do not do it justice.    
The next items are in honor of back to school.  I made this shirt for my daughter.  It is a school spirit shirt.

This one is the same design, only put together a little differently and made as a car decal.  I love the rhinestone decal material that I use for the decals and the water bottle below.  The best deal I have been able to find is at craft vinyl without buying a whole roll(scroll almost to the bottom just under the Sticky Flock).  They sell 3 - 12 x 18" sheets for $24.95.  (plus about $8 shipping)  Anybody know of a better deal or maybe a great deal on a roll??  I love this stuff, so many possibilities!! 
Here is the water bottle I was talking about, it is a birthday gift for a brand new teenager!!

Last one, same decal material but on a tumbler.  I got the wine glass from The Rhinestone World.  I bought it with a $5 off coupon.  Great deal!!  The font is from Rhinestone Alphabets. She has a ton of different styles and sizes of fonts, mostly $12 and less.  I have a few fonts in differnet sizes cut out of sticky flock and ready to go when I need a quick project on the fly and no time to cut a template.   

As always, thanks for looking!!
