April Lori Whitlock Blog Hop



Welcome to the April Blog Hop.  It's time for Spring and Easter projects.  And Mother's Day will come around the corner, so start thinking of those too. I have really enjoyed the trendy Letterboards that have been popping up every where.  I got a letterboard and a set of white letters for my birthday.  I organized the white letters in a plastic divided box usually used for beads.  It works pretty well.  When Heidi Swapp introduced her Letterboard products, I knew I needed to add her 2" gold letters to my collection.  But how to store them?  Well the alphabet fit in nicely along with the white letters that I already had, but there were too many gold numbers and punctuation to fit in the same container.  I decided to search Lori's files to find something organize them.  And I found the perfect box.  It is the 4x6 Storage Box.  There is a helpful tutorial video at that link as well.  It is here on the Silhouette store.




The boxes were quick to put together and are sized perfectly for the 2" letters.

Enjoy the hop!

March Lori Whitlock Blog Hop--Pi Day

Welcome to the March Blog Hop and Happy Pi Day!  What a fun week of smaller holidays.  Pi Day is today and Friday is St. Patrick's Day!  I always love St. Patrick's Day, so if you need some green inspiration, check out some of my past posts. Today I am sharing some fun Pi Day projects.

First up Lunch Jokes:




I found my Pi jokes here. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. I used Lori's Mod Multicolored Paper; I love this paper! And I used Dreamy Font.

To type Pi on a Windows computer, use ALT 227. π

I also experimented with Text on a Spiral in Silhouette Studio.
I used the Dreamy Font here as well.  And I found 1 million digits of Pi here.



Have a fabulous Pi Day and Enjoy the Hop.

February Lori Whitlock Blog Hop

 Happy Valentine's Day and welcome to the February Blog Hop. I made some Valentine pillows with Lori's file and Heat Transfer Vinyl.  Lori has many files that would work well for pillows.

I used these: Love from Silhouette, Love from SVG store
Heart from Silhouette, Heart from SVG

 Heat Transfer Vinyl tips: Don't forget to mirror the image, and cut shiny side down.
I found this post very helpful as well: http://www.whatchaworkinon.com/working-with-heat-transfer-vinyl

Pillow covers from Ikea, HTV from Expressions Vinyl.

Pick up a cute heart at Lori's blog:


Enjoy the Hop!
