Silhouette love~

I'm calling this ~ my silhouette phase right now.  I love them - so I'm not sure if I'm finished yet with them!

For this "phase" I used the Silhouette Family and the other graphics from The Graphic Fairy.
I layered the "family" on a handwriting graphic.

Here's mom and dad - love the pipe dad has!

These were old picture frames - that I painted a gloss black

Here's the kids!

These kids are too cute!

These aren't silhouettes, but I love how they look with the "family"

I printed these images out on vellum paper

These frames are candle holders from Dollar Tree - painted black
I removed the glass - since I have vellum paper in these - I'm using  battery tea lights

I Silhouette heart these!


  1. My goodness these are fantastic! You did a wonderful job. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Adorumble!
    I love The Graphics Fairy and have used many of her .jpgs throughout my home- I think I need to head over there and check out her collection of silhouettes!
    Genius to use the printed vellum with the tea light behind it!!
    Where do you have this vignette?

  3. Wow, I love the little silhouette flamesless candles with the vellum, gonna have to try making some of these....These are GREAT!

  4. Oh Marcy! What phenomenal ideas for the silhouettes! They're lovely, truly lovely! Wow..and the tea lights..they're wonderful! Don't you just love Graphics Fairy? One of my favorite sites!

  6. Just beyond belief adorable!!! Fantastic ideas!
    I personally love these silhouettes and used them as pictures when my son's wife had twins...I put their names underneath each one...
    Love how yours looked in the frames--precious!!!

  7. They came out great! I really like the final touch of the pocketwatch and typewriter. They look gorgeous all grouped together!


  8. it looks great!
    I have never thought about printing on velum!
    Does it take longer to dry?
    what a great idea to put them in front of batteries tea light!

  9. Thanks so much for the comments! I have these in our guest bedroom. It doesn't take too long for the ink to dry on the vellum - I cut these out about 5 minutes after I printed them!xoxo ~Marcy
