I made a few more signs.......

Hey there!  I hope you all had a great Fourth of July weekend!  We headed north to my parent's cabin and enjoyed a long extended weekend lounging by the lake.  It was very enjoyable and went by way too quick!!'s back to reality, which includes putting everything away and getting organized again which really is NOT much fun...right?  It's hard to believe that we just celebrated the Fourth of July....can we just sloooow down time for a bit?  Summer is my favorite season....and I need it to stick around for a bit!  

I wanted to share with you a couple of signs that I made a few months back.  I had some boards laying around so I gave them a coat of primer.  After the coat of primer had dried I created both stencils using my cricut machine. I've said before that contact paper works great as stencils and is much cheaper to use than the vinyl you find at your craft store.  I placed my contact letters down on the board and then painted a layer of gray paint and yellow paint (pictured below).  After that layer of paint dried I lifted the contact paper letters off and received my desired phrases.  The letters came out almost perfect:)  

Thanks for reading.....

  1. I love the phrase You are my sunshine. A baby sitter used to sing this to me when I was little. I made a similar version for Traveling Door and it sold right away. You have reminded me of that and I'm thinking I need one for our home. :D Thanks for the motivation.
