Hand Lettered Valentine's Day Shirt + Free Cut Files

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  It's been a hot minute since I've shared anything here on the blog.  I've been busy with work and being mom, so I haven't had much time to devote to my blog, which makes me sad.  Creating projects doesn't take a ton of time, but photographing those projects, editing photos, writing a blog post and adding all the links does.  I'd rather devote that time to having fun with my little man. But this week while he was with his grandparents, my house was clean, and I actually had some time to create, photograph, and blog.  I was so excited!  Today I'm thrilled to show you one of those projects: a hand-lettered Valentine's Day t-shirt that I made for my little man.  Today I'm sharing the FREE cut file with you so that you can make one of your own.  (Don't worry if you're a girl mom because I have a t-shirt design for girls too!)

DIY Rainbow Quote Shirt + Free Cut File

This post is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl and contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  Today I am teaming up with Expressions Vinyl to show you how to make a bright, fun hand-lettered rainbow quote shirt using heat transfer vinyl and your Silhouette Cameo or Cricut. And, y'all, we're not just using regular HTV.  We're using fluorescent HTV!  This bright heat transfer vinyl just screams rainbow, so what better to use to create a rainbow quote shirt?  As usual, I'm giving you the FREE hand-lettered cut file a little later in the post so that you can create your own rainbow shirt.
DIY Rainbow Quote Shirt
Have you ever heard the term "rainbow baby"?  It's the name given to a baby born after a miscarriage or infant loss because that baby is the rainbow after the storm.  If you follow me on social media, you know that my husband and I welcomed a baby boy into our home in October through adoption.  He's our rainbow baby, so when I knew I was going to create something with fluorescent heat transfer vinyl, I thought what better thing to make than a t-shirt for my rainbow baby.  I love that the quote can apply to rainbow babies or just be a source of encouragement to anyone going through a hard time.  Let me show you how to make one of these shirts yourself.

Mermaid in the USA Cut File for the Fourth

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  I wouldn't normally post on a Saturday, but I have a fun FREE hand-lettered cut file that I just couldn't wait to share with you.  I always love to make a unique shirt for the Fourth of July, so this year when I was searching for inspiration, I saw the phrase "Mermaid in the USA" in a few places.  I knew I had to hand-letter the phrase and create my own patriotic shirt for Independence Day.  And as usual, I'm sharing the cut file with you today so that you can make your own.

Mermaids are pretty popular these days, and I loved the excuse to draw a mermaid tail!  I think the design turned out really cute!

DIY Fourth of July Tank
Once I created my design, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut red glitter HTV, gold metallic HTV, and blue holographic HTV from Expressions Vinyl for my design.  I love the combination of the glitter and foil-y goodness!  I ironed the designs on a cute tank from Target.  I can't wait to wear my shirt to celebrate for the Fourth!  Do you make yourself or your children shirts for holidays too?

Hey, y'all!  I'm so excited about today's post!  Do you ever make something and get super happy because it turns out even better than you imagined?  That's what happened with the project I'm sharing with you today.  My friends at Expressions Vinyl gave me the challenge to create a project based on the idea of Summer Fun.  Summer always make me think of the beach, so I decided to try to personalize a beach chair with vinyl, and, y'all, it worked!  Today I'm showing you how to do it, and, as usual, I'm sharing the FREE hand-lettered cut file with you so that you can create your own.

 To make this project even more fun, I used fluorescent vinyl in a rainbow of colors, and I threw in some glitter vinyl because, well, GLITTER.  I feel like this chair just screams SUMMER!  And other than trying to iron a chair (which is a bit awkward to say the least), this project was really easy.  Let me show you how I did it.

Free Hand-Lettered Water Bottle Cut File

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  Last week on Instagram I shared a picture of my new water bottle that I dressed up with some vinyl and a hand-lettered cut file.  I did a poll to find out if anyone would want me to share the cut file I created here on the blog, and the answer was an overwhelming yes.  So that's what I'm doing today!
Free Hand-Lettered Water Bottle Cut File
 I want to start drinking more water; that's why I bought myself a new water bottle.  I figured I'd be more willing to drink water if my water bottle was cute, so I designed a little something on my iPad Pro.  I converted the design to an SVG to use with my Silhouette Cameo.

Hey, y'all!  I'm popping in today to give y'all a fun freebie!  I am a fan of Dolly Parton.  I have been since I was a little girl and my grandmother would visit Dollywood and bring me back postcards with pictures of Dolly on them.  I kept them in an album, which I still have to this day.  I wanted to put a design on a plain mug this week, and a quick Pinterest search inspired me to create a Dolly-inspired mug.

Hey, y'all!  I am so excited to be bringing y'all a brand new project today!  If you follow me on social media, you probably know that in October, my husband and I adopted a sweet little baby boy, and I have quickly learned that photos of my little man are pretty much my favorite thing in the world.  My love of taking pictures of my sweet boy inspired today's project, which is the perfect baby shower gift!  I'm showing you how to make a DIY Baby Monthly Chalkboard Photo Prop.  You can make this project VERY quickly by using chalkboard vinyl from Expressions Vinyl so that you don't have to wait for chalkboard paint to dry and cure.  Of course, I'm showing you the whole quick and easy process, and I'm sharing the FREE hand-lettered cut file with you so that you can make your own.

I love that you can personalize this project by using different size frames and different color vinyl, and you can even embellish the frame with flowers or a tiny pennant banner.  Let me show you how easy it is to make.
