I can’t think of any better way to spend an evening than crafting with friends. And lucky for me, I get to spend one night a month with the Creative Cutters group! Our topic for February was “Glass Etching (and more!)” with the “more” being a paper project. Several new people were in attendance, four of whom had never seen a Silhouette machine before, so that was an extra treat. I love introducing people to the wonders of the Silhouette world!
To begin, one of our members shared the cutest Show & Tell! Some lucky little boy is going to have a lot of fun wearing this to the local Livestock Show next week.
After Show & Tell, it was time to get started on our project. I began by showing everyone how to create a cuttable design using a dingbat font.
Using that design (along with two of my favorite products – Oramask 813 Stencil Film and etchall cream) we worked on etching glass candleholders to use as planters for a paper plant.
While the etchall did its magic, we constructed paper succulents using a cute Lori Whitlock design (Design Store ID #181945).
As soon as we finished the succulents, it was time to rinse the candleholders. It’s always fun to see the “WOW!” moment that comes when the stencil is removed, revealing the etched design.
Everyone did such a great job and there were lots of smiles at the end of the evening!
Interested in joining us? We’d love to have you! Our next meeting is on March 20, 6:30 pm, at 522 W. College Street in Carthage, TX. There is no cost to attend but each project does require a small supply fee. Watch my Facebook page for more details.
Until next time,
P.S. This week marks the one-year anniversary of this blog! Thanks for helping to make it such a wonderful first year ♥.

I just loved this meeting! Getting to see how excited the ladies were when they rinsed their candle holders and at the end with the completed project was such fun. Thank you for another great evening!!
You’re welcome. It was fun for me too!
