Hello All and Happy Monday! We’re excited that you have all joined us yet again for the 5th monthly installment of Silhouette Life Inspiration Box! We encourage you all to follow along AND to share your awesome creations with us in return! Do a video of your unboxing, share it with your friends! Post some photos of the super-fun supplies you received OR even things that you’ve already made with these fabulous supplies! And when you do, please hashtag us so we can check it out too! Remember, we award random prizes through the month for all hashtag participants, so join in the fun with us and you might receive a goodie in the mail!
In addition, we have some super amazing news regarding the availability of tutorials to subscribers… you no longer have to wait! We have created a secret MEMBER’S ONLY Facebook Group that is only for active subscribers! In this group we share the full tutorials at the beginning of each month (January’s are already available!), along with great files and freebies that are part of your box subscription. We are also creating a great learning environment where we can share our love for the box, honest feedback, question, project ideas or results, etc. As long as it’s semi-box related, you are free to share away! Just remember, this is a box exclusive as part of your subscription membership, so we aren’t able to add friends or family.
So now let’s talk about all the goodies you received in the January box! We’re going to go through the list here, but be sure to check out our Facebook video this evening for a full visual run-down of all these fantastic tools and supplies (coming later today!). We know that some of the supplies don’t make sense now, but trust us when we say that we have some pretty amazing crafts planned to teach you some new techniques with your Silhouette!
Once again we have some pretty amazing sponsors and we truly cannot thank them enough for participating! It’s only through their generosity that we are able to host this box, so remember them when it comes time to do some shopping. We have personally vetted each sponsor that we use, this isn’t a box that sponsors can buy into with free product. We’ve chosen the best and luckily they chose us back.
So as promised, we have a full schedule of all the projects that we will debut this month that correspond with the goodies in your January box! Below you will find the dates and direct links, but please keep in mind that the links will not work until that date! These dates will alternate between Tuesday and Friday of each week, so it’ll be easy to remember when we’re revealing a new project – just come check us out every Tuesday and Friday!
January 10, 2017 – Of course you know how much we love Creative Fabrica. Remember when we revealed their awesome subscription based font program? Amazing. So we’re happy to announce that they have sponsored an awesome font and cut file bundle for our Wedding Themed box! Did you catch that? That’s right, our entire box this month is geared towards weddings and anniversaries, but don’t worry, you’ll be able to use these skills for a multitude of projects with or without nuptials.
January 13, 2017 – One of the coolest parts of being a Bride-To-Be is all the accessorizing you get to do while you plan your wedding. It’s the perfect excuse to make things for you and your “Bride Tribe” while exploring how to make things for your own wedding! Even more exciting is when you get to add a little bling along the way, and I think you’ll agree with me when I share my excitement over this gorgeous Glitter Laminate Overlay from SparkleBerry Ink! There’s also a special offer for box subscribers, so be sure to check out the FB group.
January 17, 2017 – So to keep on with the fun of accessorizing for you and your bridesmaids (or for a bride in your life), let’s think clutches and cosmetic bags! These cute clutches from Craft Chameleon made the perfect test-dummies for trying a new type of HTV: Bling Bling MIRROR! That’s right, you read right, Mirror HTV from Chemica. It’s sure to add some bling to your projects, wedding themed or not!
January 20, 2017 – If you haven’t tried glass etching yet, you don’t know what you’re missing! This may be my favorite project to personalize gifts, and I’m here to introduce you to the hands-down best etching cream on the market: EtchAll! While there are a few different ways to get the etched glass look, etching cream is the way to go (in my opinion) and I’m convinced once you try it, you’ll be convinced, too!
January 24, 2017 – Looking for personalized wedding favors can be exhausting, not to mention outrageously expensive. While cork coasters may not be your cup of tea, working with GlitterFlex and Crystals is sure to have your design sense swooning at first glance. We’re excited to partner with Dawn of Glitter Eye Candy as she shows us how you can use Swarovski Crystals, GlitterFlex HTV and her specialty process to create a gorgeous and pain-free design!
January 27, 2017 – A lot of Silhouette enthusiasts make the mistake of thinking that papercrafting is something to avoid or they are intimidated because cutting cardstock isn’t as cut and dry as cutting vinyl. So today we are going to give you a nice and easy introductory project before we proceed into more papercrafts throughout the year. Lucky for you, 2017 is going to be a year of progressive learning, and if you’re a box subscriber, you can come along for the papercrafting ride!
February 2017 – New boxes are arriving with a whole new set of supplies! Yay!
Don’t forget to follow along on Facebook for some live videos that correspond with these written tutorials!
