Stamp Storage!

Hey there crafty friends!!
Wow...its been another long stretch between posts again!!  Hopefully with fall approaching the drought will come to an end.  I haven't been doing paper crafty things...but have been doing lots of fun stuff with wood recently.  
I have discovered a whole different use for my Silhouette Cameo.  I'm sure I'm "late to the party" here...but I never even thought of making stencils or using my machine to help me create signs.  Wowza...I've opened up a whole new world for myself and I'm having a blast!!!

My awesome hubby has been showing me how to use all his tools in the garage to help me with my crafts! I have a lot of things I want to make for our yard, but I've also been after him to help be build some storage boxes for my "little" stamp collection.  I finally cornered him this weekend and we made it happen!!!

For the My Collection lettering and the Jaded Blossom flower logo I actually cut vinyl on the box and then painted over it.  First you have to paint the different sections of the box in the color you want your image/lettering to show up as and then paint over it.  I wait till the paint is somewhat dry and then pull up the vinyl.  I tried to cut a stencil for the words Jaded Blossom in the font they use for their logo....but I couldn't get it to cut without tearing the vinyl, so I went with just the initials.  I didn't like how it turned out when I painted it on like the rest of the design....I didn't have a darker shade of brown paint and I wanted it to stand out a for that part I did actually put the vinyl on the box.  I'm pretty excited how these came you can boxes are pretty well full so I plan on building a couple more!!!
