Valentine's Day - Silhouettes

(Image via karenswhimsy)

When I think of Valentine's Day decor, I immediately think of silhouettes.  I fell in love with this family silhouette portrait months ago, originally seen here and here.

Here are the silhouettes of my girls. I basically used Diane Thompson's tutorial, but mine are made from scrapbook paper, not fabric.

They make me smile.  You can also make smaller versions for cards.  I made a set for the grandparents. 

I had good intentions to make silhouette Christmas ornaments using the Lee Valley's wooden Christmas balls, but I didn't get to it - definitely next year (when my littlest one has more hair!). 

Also, I have not finished a silhouette of my labrador.

See this post for a lovely roundup of silhouette tutorials.  

Finally, I can't write about silhouettes without mentioning the lovely ones found on Nie Nie 's blog header.  You can read about her inspiring story here.

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Mmmh, I'm not a big fan of processed foods. I make my own salad dressing and pasta sauce. When I do buy processed foods, I'll pick up Knorr Pea Soup. I could eat that every day for supper with a salad.


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear what you think!
