I “met” when I started my blog almost 1 year ago.
(Can you believe it??? My blog is almost ONE!  Crazy!)
Kristyn has always been super friendly & encouraging.
Plus I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her stuff.  She’s amazing!
So it’s really an honor to be a part of her team!

Today I’d love to show you how to make this family est. block.

Annnnnd of course, by now you know my style…

Yep, you guessed it…. this project is super cute & easy!

I used my Silhouette to cut my vinyl using

the CK Chemistry font for the Our Family.

To make the dotted line I just used ……..periods……

in the CK Chemistry font (size 72 pt).

The year est. is done in the Hula Skirt Girl font

You can find links to download both of these fonts here.

(If you don’t have a vinyl cutter…you can order the vinyl from my etsy shop, here.)

To make these all you’ll need is a 2×4 cut into a 7 inch block.
Lightly sand it.  Then paint your block.  Let it dry.  Then apply your vinyl.
