Pinning this this very minute! My new Silhouette from Christmas is still sitting on top of the box, yet to be even plugged in… intimidated much? Thanks for all these great links, hon!

Mine too. I’m finding there’s not a lot of tutorials out there. The ones that are there are so far away from the computer screen and so fast, they are hard to follow. I’m terrified of starting.
So much inspiration for my silhouette! 😀

Love the flash light idea! You could make a different character for each kid and they could tell stories on the wall!
