Anyway, my sister is also expecting. She's due 1 week after me. How awesome is that. Cousins so close in age! YAY. She's having a boy. This is the second for them as well. I've got some HTV in the mail for the boys as well. Everyone needs a personalized t-shirt!
The other babies due are my cousins. She's having TRIPLETS! All girls. Her and her husband have 2 boys now. They will most certainly have their hands full. God has a lot of faith in them! Could you imagine? I'd be worried I'd forget who is who! HAHA. Well, with that fear in mind, I made the girls a little personalized something. Check it out!

I was so excited. I had picked up some glitter HTV at my local Joann's. It wasn't Silhouette cameo brand, but I figured they were all the same. I had seen a pack of little tanks in a 2T at my moms, and asked if I could borrow them to spruce them up a little bit. I had the phrase "if found please return to Nanny" all set up on the silhouette and ready to cut. That's when things went south for me. The machine didn't seem to be putting a mark on the HTV. I did test cut after test cut and NOTHING! I thought something was wrong with my machine, or at least the blade. I was using the "heat transfer material- smooth" and just manipulating the settings.
Finally, about ready to give up, I stumbled on the setting for "Glitter/Flocked Patterned Paper (Medium weight- 65lb)". This was the golden ticket for me. It cut the glitter heat transfer without cutting the clear backing. I was able to get my shirt done!
Today, while the kid slept and the hubby golfed, I tried another little shirt for Gwendolyn. I'm still torn on whether or not to put her name above the butterfly, but I LOVE how it came out.

Go to unoriginalmom.com for the Cut File I used. I had to edit it a little since neither of Gwen's grandparents goes by "Grandma".
Check out her blog while you're there. I found a bunch of great ideas!
Anyway. Here is the finished "Gift Bag"
