Rhinestone Kit Giveaway and Silhouette Design Team Blog Hop!!!

I'm super excited for my post today!  I get to highlight one of my favorite Silhouette products and also do a giveaway!!!  We as the Silhouette Design Team are also doing a blog hop!  So you can see what all of our favorites are and enter to win a lot of prizes!!!



I chose the Rhinestone Starter Kit because it is so amazing!  I love things that sparkle, but have you ever tried to do a rhinestone design with a single rhinestone setter?  It takes FOREVER!  So when I got my Silhouette Cameo last year for Christmas I was so excited to discover that I could make rhinestone templates.  I love these for so many reasons....  I love that I can make one template and use it again and again.  I love that it is so quick and easy to use.  I love that there is a transfer paper that helps me line up the design just right on my project and can be ironed.  The whole process is wonderful!  I chose this one also so that one lucky winner can also fall in love with the Rhinestone Starter Kit, and hopefully I will inspire the rest of you to try it out as well.  :)



Ok, how cute is this rhinestone Christmas light design on this little T-shirt?!  I like to make things for my daughter that not everyone else will be wearing.  Using my Silhouette always helps me accomplish this.



I know it may take a little bit of time to weed out the holes on the template velvet if you don't get it pulled off quickly, but this finished result is totally worth it!  It may sound a little weird, but sometimes I enjoy weeding out my designs.  It's just fun to see it come to life I guess.



And yes...the shirt is way cuter on.  I may also think that I have the cutest daughter in the whole world!!!  Don't you just want to pinch those cheeks?

Your next blog in our blog hop is...Cari Locken

  33. I must confess that I first learned of the Silhouette by way of a demonstration make-n-take for rhinestones. I was so impressed I bought the Silhouette Cameo, but I have yet to get the rhinestone supplies to make anything. And I do love glitz. Thanks for your inspirational project and reminder that I truly do want to create with rhinestones. I guess I've just been off having other fun with the very versatile Silhouette, packed full of #CreativeGoodness.

  72. I got my Silhouette Cameo a year ago to make cupcake wrappers and toppers. I bought a rhinestone kit and love doing it so much and, as a graphic designer, starting creating my own designs. I'm now a contributing artist at Silhouette and am so pleased to see one of designs was chosen by Amy for her giveaway blog! Your model is beautiful.

    If you haven't tried working with rhinestones, there's no better time! It's my favorite thing. You can create wonderful, personal gifts for friends and family. http://tinyurl.com/k5yku2c

    Thank you Amy for choosing one of my designs - it's great! Good luck to the winner!
