Do it with foil and your project will shine. Cari did just that on this scrapbook layout using my Holly Flourishes found here in the Silhouette shop. Check out the entire post here and make your holiday merry and bright!
I love the holidays for many reasons but one of them has to be the hyper-creative mode that everyone gets into as we create holiday decor or gift ideas. I have been to Hobby Lobby three times this week and just realized I have to go back tomorrow! This is the Christmas season.
These shapes can only be used on your Silhouette die-cutting machine or other svg-compatible machine if you purchase my shapes from Lori Whitlock’s svg shop here.
Let’s start off with Beth over at Unskinny Boppy – a month ago she did her first Silhouette project using my shape here. She loves the Silhouette so much (who doesn’t???) that she came back for more during the blogging 2014 Holiday Housewalk. This phrase is one of my favorite designs and you can find it in my Silhouette shop here. You’ll find all of the stunning photos of her gorgeous holiday home here and when I say gorgeous, I mean gorgeous. Be my neighbor, Beth! I love her use of boxwood as a festive, organic addition to every room in her home.
Did you know you could create stamps using your Silhouette machine? See how Guiseppa did it here with my “Merry Christmas” phrase. Find the phrase in the Silhouette shop here or choose from any of my other holiday phrases and quotes in the shop here.
Last but not least, Cari has outdone herself with these Christmas tags using some of my latest Christmas shapes. See her full post here. The whimsical quality of the design of this “Merry Christmas” is married to the natural quality of the printable kraft paper to create a very current holiday look. Find this Merry Christmas here.
Next, Cari used one of my Word Tree phrases to create this tag. You can see all of my Word Tree phrases here or this “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” here. She used the sketch pen feature to print this tag and “Happy Holidays” envelope detail. Don’t you just love her work? Or should I say, “work of art?”
As you can see, there are so many ways to use my phrases and shapes to create your projects this holiday season – and I love to see them all!
If you are using a different electronic die-cutting machine and need an svg file, go to my designs at the Lori Whitlock svg shop. This is also where you can purchase a commercial license to sell a project using any of my designs or shapes on your projects.
Check out this cute idea for Thanksgiving place cards – it would work great for any event. Name tags or raffle tickets or anything you need someone to fill out. She used my “Welcome”phrase for the title. I would love to be welcomed by this darling project!
I’m a fan of texture so when I saw this tutorial about how to use my subway art files to print and cut on a canvas sheet, I was totally inspired. Because I give you a completely merged file as well as the individual words separately in each download, you can manipulate the art completely to fit your project, just like Cari did in her tutorial (found here).
Look for my Autumn Fall Harvest word list in the Silhouette store here (for Silhouette users) and in Lori’s svg shop here. I have lots of other subway art word lists available and this tutorial will work on any of them as well as my quotes and phrases.
Check out Cari’s tutorial here to find out how she created such a fabulous effect with her gradient and canvas. Happy Holiday Projecting!

Want to know how to work with my layered phrases over at the Silhouette shop? Here you go. Lisa has a great tutorial for creating projects in vinyl using my quote files – they come with a merged version and un-grouped version and Lisa shows how to use both here.
This is the best tutorial for basic use of my layered quote files – it works for any of them found in the Silhouette shop or in Lori Whitlock’s svg shop. Doesn’t that layered vinyl look fabulous? That is the exact reason I create the files to be layered – so you can get a great result like this one.

I’m a fan of anything which includes thread or fabric or linens of any kind – including the Pillowcase People Dance that we experienced at our family reunion. It’s always a winner. We like mixing up the members of our families to create teams for skits and games. This is Coleman’s Team – he’s the one with the hot pink leggings. I’m not sure why his SUPER-FUN uncles picked those for him but he sure was proud of them. Don’t mess with a man’s leggings!
So I was thrilled to see these two tutorials using my shapes on the Silhouette blog. Find the anchor shape here and the leaf garland here. You can also choose my leaf garland alphabet with the letters already included.

Lisa knocked it out of the part with this tutorial where she teaches you to create an offset from a shape and then uses a cool painting technique that you will love to personalize her Easter baskets. Isn’t this so pretty? Click here for the entire tutorial.
You’ll want the entire set of flourish frame monograms so you are ready for any project, for any person. Each letter comes with both a horizontal and a vertical shaped frame – lucky you! These really are so versatile (no wonder they’ve been so popular in the shop!)
