Stamp to the Max February Blog Hop

Love is in the air!  Welcome to the February blog hop.  This month it is all about LOVE.  Love via Valentine's Day, anniversaries, weddings, and more.  I have tons of ideas for love themed projects and such since the next 4 weeks are full of awesome events for my family.  We have Valentine's Day, my birthday 2 weeks later, and then my wedding anniversary the week after that.  Whew!  That's a lot of love.

So the project I have for you today is one that came to be last week when one of the local home d├ęcor stores had a sale on dishes.  I picked up a dozen 12" square dinner plates and a stand for $35 total!  Then using the ever amazing My Digital Studio software created a cute saying to go on the plate in vinyl.  My husband gave me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and I love pairing it with MDS.  I can create anything I want and the machine cuts it for me...genius I tell you. 

One of our songs from when we were dating and first married is the saying on the plate for February.  It makes us giggle like little kids when we hear it.  I don't really know how it came to be one of our songs, but it is so it was the perfect thing to put on the plate for the month of love. 

The first picture is the creation I made in My Digital Studio and the second picture is the final product.  You can see that I changed the color in the final product because I didn't have gray and red vinyl.  I had black and pink.  But I think it turned out cute anyway. 

You can always get a free 30 day trial of MDS from my website.  Then if you like it, it is a crazy low price of $19.95 and includes a ton of downloads with it.  I always look forward to Tuesdays since that is when Stampin' Up! releases the new digital downloads each week.  Don't forget to  check it out next Tuesday. 
Now hop along and get some more ideas for your month of love from the others.  You will not be disappointed.
