Relaxing Rocks

Well this just made my little calligrapher's heart sing. (It's Suzanne here with the singing heart)  Vinyl is amazing.  It holds such fine detail!  Why would I ever try to directly letter on a rock?  Especially one this small.  Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas next year?  You guessed it.  Rocks!

I used Silhouette white vinyl on the Cameo.  I shrunk/shrank/reduced the lettering to between 1 and 2 inches.  I placed a small piece of vinyl on the cutting mat and set the blade depth to 1 (the vinyl setting) and cut. After weeding out the excess vinyl from the negative spaces, I used the Premium Transfer paper to transfer the cut vinyl to the rocks.

Here are the files I used (and wow, you get Italic, Foundational and Modern Pointed Pen):

(links go the Silhouette Online Store)

There are other files I'd like to do, like Serenity, Smile, Welcome Home and more! And I need to design some more!

I tell you, I could go on and on and on.  But I need more rocks..... 
I hope this gives you some ideas for decorating your own rocks.  You know you want to try it.

Thanks for dropping by.  Happy cutting, Suzanne
