Silhouette Update!!!...

Ok, these are addictive and actually not very hard to make. I decided I didn't like the white background, but all the other card stock I had in the house only had 3 or 4 sheets of each color(nice taupes and ivories) and I didn't feel like heading 30 minutes to the store to get more paper. I finally found enough sheets of one color in my daughters room, it's an off white creamy color, not quite what I wanted, but much better than the white. Can you see the difference(look at the post below). I then recut all the silhouettes and added more detail to the hair and cut the bottoms differently. I like them much better now. What do you think? Better? (and my oldest is home, so I did his)

Oh, and I have no plans on doing hubby or myself, I absolutely can't stand my profile!! This is strictly a kid thing :)

Now I need to go clean up a million little paper cuttings(the only down side of this). But really, if you have put off making these, please give them a try, it only takes a little of your time and virtually no money.



  1. Dearest Tiff,

    They are absolutely darling. I especially love the glasses and "sprigs" of hair. You are so creative and inspiring!

  2. Oh, Tiff,
    They are so wonderful! I love all the little details that "make" your kids...glasses, hair cuts, toddlers! You have done such a great job on these! The change in backing makes all the difference!

    When you decide to do something, there's no stopping you! I like the variation in size of the frames. I think it adds interest. I don't like everything the same.
    Happy Easter.
    Pug hugs :)

  4. Hi Tiff,
    I tried to respond to your post by email but it goes to "no reply comment". I live in Limestone, way up here in the great white north. How about you?

  5. Your silhouettes turned out great. I have a set of my kids that were done at Disneyland about 4 or 5 years ago. I wish I'd done them all while they were little, but it's still fun to see how much they've changed, just in those few years.

  6. What a wonderful memory you've created.They turned out beautiful! Warm Blessings!~Amy

  7. They look great! You should be proud of yourself. All those little cuts had to be very time consuming and I bet it tried your patience at times.

    Happy Easter Tiff,
    Hugs ~AMY~

  8. Love the new paper, these are on my do to list! Thanks for posting!

  9. Very pretty Tiffany:) I remember doing silhouettes in grade school for parent teacher night. That was way long ago... lol. You've done a beautiful job.
