Episode 131: Summer Camp!

I have been getting my girls for camp this week, and it's EXHAUSTING!  I was into camp, so this is all new to me.  I had no idea it was SO involved....from the clothes to the costumes to the mail...  Anyway, I have totally broken in my Silhouette Cameo, and I LOVE it!  What took me so long?  The software is amazing and simple!  I have cut a ton of vinyl and heat transfer vinyl.  Addicted!!!

I first decorated their trunks.  The fonts are from  Abigail is the "Hippie Movement" font, and Lucy is the "Heartland" font.  Everything except the megaphone was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.  The megaphone is from my Cricut Expression.

Then I moved onto the shower caddies.  My husband bought these at the dollar store, and I used regular vinyl to label them.

I then decided to heat transfer vinyl a bow and headband I bought from Hobby Lobby.  I bought the image from the Silhouette library.  Remember to mirror your image if you are going to iron on an image.

And lastly, I decided to make welcome gifts for my girls and their cabin mates.  I found the camp logo online, imported it in the Silhouette software, traced the image, added "Summer 2014", mirrored it, cut it out of heat transfer vinyl and applied it to all the inexpensive pillowcases.

I then rolled up the pillowcases, put them in cute chevron gift bags I purchased at Hobby Lobby and tied a fabric marker and little message to it.  I hope the girls have fun signing each other's camp pillowcases and that they make great mementos for them!

Here is the quick video I made for my You Tube Channel:

All these ideas would translate well to birthday parties.  BUTTTT, I am super exhausted from a long day of packing and crafting.  So good night all!

Thanks for stopping by!
Take time to "Prettify Your Life"!!!
