I saw this cute item on one of the shelves at Hobby caught my eye since the teal and grey are my daughter's business colors.  I took a phone pic and sent it to her to see what she thought; I told her I could see me using my Silhouette to finish it off by adding her logo.  She loved the idea, so I timed it to when it was 50% off and bought it.  I was surprised to find it was actually magnetic....they had this cute flower magnet on the (the first one I spotted, the flower was missing) front of it.

I made a stencil using my Silhouette machine, since I envisioned her logo actually painted on the board.  It also allowed me to have a stencil to reuse in the event we found any other cool uses for it.  This was the first time I tried a stencil, so I was a little nervous because of the nice herringbone background....rather than mess it up, I decided to trace it with a pencil and then hand paint the lettering. Maybe next time I'll try it the traditional way of taping/pasting the stencil down and painting right over it.

 I then used two colors of vinyl to add the "digital designs" to finish off her name.  I was pleasantly surprised when I stopped by Hobby Lobby on my way home intending to get one color with my 40% off coupon....and lo and behold, the vinyl was 50% off.  How could I resist? I decided to pick up two colors for the price of one!                   Cute huh?
