12. We’re done! That’s all we want in our design. Now, we assigned a different color to the text depending on the color of the vinyl we want to use. Cricut will then separate the elements automatically when the design is sent to cut. We’re using pink for the text and a glittery vinyl for the robots.

How To Make Your Own Farmhouse-Style Pitcher

A guest post by Audrey C, from Project Silhouette

How to make your own Farmhouse Pitcher with Silhoutte Cameo and The February Craft Bundle

Love and Hate Relationship

I have to be honest with you: I have a love/hate relationship with Chip and Joanna Gaines. Why? I love them because they work so well together, they create miraculous results with houses that need a lot of help, and pretty much the entire world loves their style. I hate them because I love them so much. 

Ha! Farmhouse style decor has gotten really big lately, and I attribute a lot of that to Joanna Gaines and her creative style. You can achieve the same style using just a few simple crafting tools and transform your home into something that Joanna would be proud of. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Get the file

February Craft Bundle 1 Farmhouse SVG cutting files from The February Craft Bundle 1

First, snag the February Bundle from Craft Bundles. They offer amazing bundles each month for a CRAZY discounted price, and you know what the best part is? They all come with a commercial license! That means you can make and sell items using their fonts and images. Can I get a what-what?!

For this project, I am using one of the SVG files in their Farmhouse bundle. Once downloaded, unzip the file and import the SVG into the software. Here I am using Silhouette Studio. Size it accordingly.

Step 2: Select your material & Cut

Next, go to your cut settings and select your material. Here I am using matte vinyl. Make sure your image shows all the cut lines! Otherwise, the cut will be incomplete.

Now load your vinyl into your machine and cut away!

Step 3: Weed the unwanted part

After your vinyl is cut, you are going to weed away the parts of the design that you don’t want. Use a small hook or a pair of tweezers to get those little pieces. This part is sometimes very relaxing!

Step 4: Put the design on transfer tape

Now grab your favourite transfer tape and place a piece on your newly-weeded design. Rub your fingers all over it so it’s stuck on well.

Flip your design over and carefully peel off the backing of the vinyl, exposing the adhesive side of your matte vinyl.

Step 5: Peel the Vinyl and place it in the pitcher!

Now it’s time to grab your cute farmhouse pitcher! I found this one at IKEA…they have some amazing Farmhouse-style decor at terrific prices! Place your design right-side-up onto your pitcher, and use your fingers to gently rub the vinyl on.

Now slowly peel the transfer tape off, leaving the vinyl on the pitcher. If your vinyl starts to peel up as well, that’s ok! Just place your fingers onto the pieces while you pull up the transfer tape.


After the transfer tape is off, rub the vinyl again in place and your farmhouse pitcher is complete!

It always amazes me at how easy it is to customize ordinary objects using the right design, and just some simple vinyl. Thank goodness Craft Bundles offers the cutest designs for a fraction of the price! Now what are you going to customize??

DIY Valentine’s Day Cake Toppers with Silhouette CAMEO 3


Valentine’s day is almost here, and you probably already have your extravagant, romantic dinner planned out. But, there’s something missing. How do you make this night special and unlike any other? Perhaps adding some fine details to your sweet endings could do the job. And we’ve got you covered. Today, we’re making Valentine’s Day Inspired Cake Toppers! We picked out some lovey-dovey designs to add to the love that’s already brewing in the air, so if that’s the missing piece in your puzzle, you can’t afford to miss this tutorial!

What we’ll need :

  • 3 Colored Papers
    Any 3 different colors of your choice. Use textured paper if you like. In this tutorial we use two regular colored papers (pink & cream) and 1 glitter paper (red).
  • An Electronic Cutting Machine
    Silhoutte Cameo, Cricut or Scan ‘n’ Cut are some of the cutting machines you can use. We’ll be using Silhoutte Cameo 3 for this tutorial.
  • Weeding Tool
  • Transference Tape
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • SuperGlue
  • Bamboo Skewers
  • Some cake!
    What are cake toppers without cake?! Get some cake from the store or bake your own! :) 
  • And lovely SVG cuttable designs
    We got our designs from The January Craft Bundle. You can find a bunch of lovely SVG cut files and crafty fonts in there!

For this project we decided to use these two designs from Brandi Lea Designs included in the January Craft Bundle:

1. Preview Image1. Preview Image

This is what we want our cake toppers to look like.

But…what’s Offset?
The ‘Offset’ feature that makes an additional outline to any of your designs.

Why Offset?

You can do wonders enhancing a design just by creating an offset! It can be used to make a design ‘pop-out’ or or add kind of a ‘3D effect to it’, depending on how you mix and match your colors and how much offset you apply. It’s also a great way to add ‘shadow’ to fonts when putting texts against busy backgrounds.

In this tutorial, we used Silhouette Studio to offset the designs.

First, let’s click on the star to bring up the Offset panel.

XOXO SVG cutting file

Click Offset

Valentines Day SVG Cutting File

Looks good! (you can fine-tune the amount of offset you want under “Distance”). Go ahead and click Apply.


Since we’re using three layers in this cake topper, we’ll offset once more. We’ll move the top layer aside for now and offset just the bottom layer.

Select the letters and click Offset.


Notice how there’s an overlap between the layers? Since we want each letter to be separate, let’s move the letters further apart from each other. Click Cancel.


Click and drag (or use the arrow keys) to move the letters further apart.


Let’s try the offset again. Looks good now. Click Apply.


And now, we have the three layers needed!


Do the same for the Hugs & Kisses file. This time, since we want the whole phrase to be a single piece, we don’t need to separate the letters .


Create an offset for the bottom layer too.


And you’re ready to send the layers to cut!

Watch how we made these adorable cake toppers….

We hope this tutorial inspired you to make your very own DIY cake toppers this Valentine’s Day. Especially if you’re getting some desserts to share with your significant other, these toppers are perfect to add to store desserts to personalize the gift, or a cake you’ve baked yourself for a romantic Valentine’s gift made entirely by you.

Santa’s Sack

Ever since I was a little girl, Santa would bring a few unwrapped gifts each year. Walking downstairs on Christmas morning to see what he left for me underneath the tree was one of the highlights of the holiday season. What would have made that experience just a bit more special for me would have been a little mystery! One year Santa had a little extra time on his hands, and he wrapped our presents, and I loved it. Guessing at what was inside made for an interesting morning that year. Had gift sacks been popular then, I think this would have made Santa’s job a little bit easier, and now that I’m a mom, I know Santa appreciates an easier task! Today, gift sacks that us crafters refer to as “Santa Sacks” are all the rage for helping Santa “wrap” presents. Nearly every crafter has tried their hand at creating them, and they can be found in the holiday décor sections in many retail stores. They are popular because they make for a truly unique family tradition that can last for years. If you are new to the crafting world and have not yet encountered them, they are essentially an oversized canvas, cotton, or burlap sack or laundry bag that are typically reusable year after year. The message on the sack may say something like “Overnight Delivery for Austin, to arrive on December 25.” Santa adds his presents to the sack and leaves it under the tree (or by the fireplace, foot of a child’s bed, etc)


Fonts Familes & Duos

If you have ever felt lost when it comes to knowing how to use fonts in your crafting designs, you’re not alone! Pairing two or more fonts can be a daunting task and choosing the right ones that work well together can seem impossible. You need the fonts to complement one another but not be overly similar. Easier said than done, right?! When I pair fonts together in my own designs, I sometimes try 40+ different combinations before I find the one that is just right. I also like to pair fonts made by the same designer, as often there are similar qualities and structures among each typeface a designer creates. The last technique I utilize when combining fonts duos and families.


Advice for Silhouette Beginners

I have had my Silhouette for about six years now, and I have made so many mistakes in those years that I could write a pretty lengthy novel. Back when I first started crafting with my Silhouette cutter, there weren’t many blogs with online tutorials or YouTube channels with how to videos. I struggled to come up with techniques that worked for even the most basic of things. I love that electronic cutting machines have changed the world of crafting, even forged a new path for crafters everywhere. There are so many different methods to do one thing and what works for one person may not work for another. I wish I had some of the resources available to me that are available today, including experienced veterans to teach their ways! Although I now know my Silhouette machine and software backwards and forwards, I am still learning new things.


It’s Nearly Halloween, Get Inspired

As a crafter myself, I completely understand when someone else’s work inspires you! So, periodically I will put together a ‘Get Inspired” post with ideas to get you crafting. Today’s post is all about Halloween. I have compiled nine different project ideas that may help get your imagination flowing. All include designs available at our sister site, Make sure you read the product description to be sure the file formats will work with your software.
