Cutting Edge Stencils {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I’m sure you know by now that we’re a military family, meaning that we move every 2-3 years.  And, then, on top of that, we’ve had the not-so-rare experience of moving 1-2 times either from base housing to a rental in town or vice versa (or, in one duty station, we did both!).  We’re usually looking for an easy, inexpensive way to make our house a home, and I was excited to find that Cutting Edge Stencils fit that bill!

Straight from their website {with my comments in italics}…

Cutting Edge Stencils “…are so easy to work with, even beginners get great results!  {Yes, yes!  I’m a super-beginner and was able to start immediately!}

Stencils are very cost effective and so much better than wallpaper or vinyl decals!  {Although I love the vinyl decals in my home, I have not yet found a way to easily peel them off the walls, take them to our new home, and reapply.  And wallpaper?  Not touching that one!} 

Stencil patterns are a hot decorating trend and so many DIY decorators are discovering the ease and fun of stenciling.  {Remember Kim Myles from HGTV Design Star and Myles of Styles?  She’s created stencils for Cutting Edge Stencils!} 

Anyone can create gorgeous accent walls with stencils and so inexpensively!  It’s easier and faster than you think.  Stenciling is not just for walls, but also floors, ceilings, furniture, fabrics, and rugs!  {I created a new focal piece for my kitchen with my Rabat Craft Stencil — my mind’s reeling with other ways to use this stencil again!}”

Over the holiday weekend, I finally completed a project that has been sitting in my closet for a while — I found this great tray at a yard sale for $2 about a month ago, but it needed a little love.  It had already been sanded down, so I painted it white and left it until I had some more inspiration.  The Rabat craft stencil was perfect for creating a little interest on this piece, and I loved using this stencil to make the end result pop!

The stencils are made of a 12 mil clear plastic, which allows it to move easily while still feeling substantial and sturdy.  Here are some of my favorites:

Birds on a Branch Wall Stencil

Casablanca All-Over Stencil

Crazy Daisy Flower Stencils

Little Salamanders Stencils

Turkish Tulip Craft Stencils

In addition to great pictures and tutorials at the main Cutting Edge Stencils website, they also provide How-To-Stencil videos on their YouTube channel:  http://www.youtube.com/user/CuttingEdgeStencils

Cutting Edge Stencils is offering offer one stencil of any value up to $50 – the Dandy winner can choose his/her favorite stencil from the website

Oh what’s in a name!  I already know I might sound a little crazy when I tell you that I constantly stew over what to name my future children.  Half the time when I can’t sleep, I play around with middle names in my head till I fall asleep.  I think a name is so important, and the first gift you can give your child!  I want it to be something I will love saying a million times, and something THEY will love hearing a million times.  Once its official, I am a sucker for any opportunity to display that name anywhere and everywhere, and Craft Cuts is one of the classiest places to do just that!

What is so incredible about this store is their ability to cut out wood lettering in practically any font your heart desires.  From cutesy curly girly fonts, to strong statement letters, you can design just the look you want for your room or bedroom.

Classy block letters for the family room!

I LOVE these letters on ribbons!  Adorable for a bedroom above a crib, or also quaint for living room décor above a couch.

And a personal favorite, wood wall letter tiles!!

What a treasure trove of supplies for artsy people looking to personalize their home!  Anyone with a creative bone in their body will have a ball perusing this shop, but if you don’t consider yourself very artsy-fartsy, Craft Cuts can certainly do all this leg work for you!  You can purchase any name already hand-painted, pre-stained, and tied with ribbon if you desire!  They really allow you to be completely creative with their blank letters, but they also can take care of you if anything in the crafty department makes you nervous, and you’d rather have it professionally done for you.

We had the huge honor of picking out some letters for our home.  I decided I wanted to make a sign of our last name to have on display in our home for as long as we live.  Though Craft Cuts can definitely design your name on a board for you (as seen here with their lettering on a base), we wanted to put it together ourselves, so I just ordered the letters individually and unpainted.  As soon as my letters arrived, I was DYING to put them together!

Here is the hubby marking things just right before we drilled them into the board to keep them steady. 

I turned on a little Dancing with the Stars and painted them up with basic tempera paint and a polyurethane gloss.  Easy peasy.

I am SO SATISFIED and thrilled about the way it turned out!  Classic, professional, and something that will always be on display.

Now I just need some holiday company over to see our majestic addition to our home décor!

Craft Cuts has quite an extensive selection of so many more products besides wood lettering.  Check out their craft kits, home decor, vinyl wall lettering, and stencils!

Get ready to get your crafty face on because one winner will receive a $30 giftcard to Craft Cuts!
