55 Glitter, a Promo and a GIVEAWAY!

Does it get any better than that?  Three of my favorite things wrapped in a bow.

First, the glitter!

When I created the memo board for the studio, I knew I wanted to add some family photos to it, since they make my grin ear to ear each day and it's important for me to be happy in my work zone.  And since I am into gold and glitter, I had a little plan to marry the two and spruce up the clothespins I would be hanging the photos from.


I pulled out my Silhouette...


And cut out a few different sized arrows to see which I liked best...


Once I had the size figured out, I cut more arrows out, this time, using their double sided adhesive paper.


The double sided adhesive paper has a allows your cut object to have a sticky front and back, so I stuck the one sticky side to the clothespin:


I kept the thicker paper on the top of the arrow to give it strength so it would not flop over once I added the gold glitter to it.


After I generously poured the glitter onto the arrow, I brushed it off and was left with a lovely sparkly arrow clip.



I repeated the process until I had enough to bring down to the studio for the memo board.


Then I just strung some twine between two pushpins, picked some of my favorite instagram shots and clipped them up!


They are the perfect happy addition to the studio! 


Second, the promotion!

It's been awhile since we have had a rockin' Silhouette promotion around here!  But, they are back just in time to give you some LOVE for Valentine's day!


Just go here to take advantage of their discount on the Silhouette Portrait and Double Sided Adhesive Starter Kit Bundle, or if you already have a Silhouette, you can get the Double Sided Adhesive Starter Kit on discount!  Just enter ORGANIZING at checkout.

Third, the GIVEAWAY!  Today, I am giving away a Silhouette Portrait Bundle to a lucky IHeart Organizing reader!  I like to think of it as a great way to celebrate all of your hard work during home office month!


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck sweet friends!

  1. Did you print the photos off at home or did you use an outside source? I love this idea!

  10. What a great idea!!! I love the fact that you took ordinary clothespins and dressed them up. I will have to pass on this idea to my daughter as she's always trying to figure out new ways to display her pictures in her bedroom. Way to go Jen....Thanks!

  12. I was looking through your Silhouette blog posts last night trying to figure out when you were going to do another giveaway/sale! I was really thinking February 1!!! If I were to purchase one would you recommend the portrait or silhouette? I have a cricut and just sold all of my cartridges on ebay and plan on using that money to buy the silhouette.

    1. Hi Greta!

      I love both the Portrait and the CAMEO. The CAMEO has a few extra options and is definitely larger, but I love the portability of the Portrait and that it does almost everything I need with ease. You can't go wrong with either but if you still need help, you can see a comparison chart here: http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/selectASilhouette.aspx

    1. I am sorry about that! Unfortunately, the giveaway host {company} determines where the products can be shipped to and the eligibility of the giveaway. I try to work with companies that will offer giveaways to all readers as often as possible.

  40. Hi Jen!

    I am trying to recreate the same arrow on my portrait but am having a hard time finding that particular arrow design. Did you buy it from the Silhouette store online? Or was it one of the 50 designs it the software came with? I cannot find it anywhere! Thanks so much.
