Crafty Is As Crafty Does?

I love to make cards -- love paper, stamps, ink, ribbons, my Silhouette Cameo, the whole nine yards, enchilada, and all that stuff!

When my sister told me about the birthday party my 9-year old niece is invited to next weekend, she said Macy needs to dress like her favorite movie star. Well, Macy doesn't really have a favorite movie star, but she sure likes...

Taylor Swift

We figure out where to pick up the cute heart-shaped sunglasses and a near-enough hat, we gather the beaded bracelets and grab a pair of black shorts. What's left? The t-shirt. This looks like a job for SuperCameo!

Work in progress

I whipped out some Silhouette heat transfer interfacing and a swatch of black cotton from my stash, found a suitable (purdy dern close) font, and went to work.

The prop

While this is surely not a work of art, I love that I could be a part of my niece's life in a creative way. I won't get tired of hearing "That Auntie Shan is pretty crafty!" Stay tuned for a follow up photo of the starlet Miss Macy at her first non-Halloween costume party. I can't wait!
