My 1st Silhouette Cameo Project!

I was SO excited when I finally ordered my Silhouette. After seeing all of the things that Jen has done with it, I knew I had to have it. 

I pinned this bad boy a while ago and I couldn't wait to do it. When Quinn was a baby I wanted to get her an adorable little growth chart with princesses and what not, but then I realized that if I had this, I could put all of my kids on it and it could be put anywhere in the house.Needless to say I am in love and it was so easy to do!

I started off with a 6' piece of wood (which they sell at Lowes pre-cut and everything).

I grabbed two cans of green beans and laid the piece of outside on our deck. I picked up a can of Miniwax stain in Golden Oak and a stain cloth/sponge looking thing. Ok, so actually I tried to stain it inside but then once I woke up from the smell induced coma, I moved it on outside. 





Once I had applied to coats of stain (allowing plenty of time for them to dry in between) I  marked off every inch with a Sharpie. 

Once that was done, I got out my Cameo and using size 200 font cute out 6 vinyl numbers which I just placed on their respective marks. 





 Hubby hung it up and it was good to go! This seriously began a crazy addiction to the Cameo in which I made labels and things for my entire house. But not too bad for my first go around!
