Silhouette and Vinyl - Oh My!



Have I told you how much I'm enjoying owning a Silhouette Cameo? 
 I absolutely love the print and cut feature, especially for my design team digital images.  I'm also having a great time with the amazing svg files you can find, particularly those from SVG  Cutting Files.  Well, I wanted to make a special gift for a dear friend's 80th birthday.  I have been wowed by the glass block projects being shared on some of the Silhouette Facebook sites so I decided to give one a try.  My friend is a devoted Red Hat Lady and I found this wonderful file in the Pazzles Craft Room.
What do you think?  The images cut perfectly from the vinyl.  The grapevine has some really fine cuts but it was no problem at all.  
 With the lights on

I put tule inside to help cover the lights.

I also had an extra Digi My World image sitting on my desk and wanted to play around with paper piecing.  Here's the result using DMW's new release, Birdhouse.
The sentiment tag is a Jaded Blossom die and the sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's new Smell the 
Flowers set.

Thanks for taking a look.  It was fun trying a few new things.  I'm glad I could share them with you.
