Halloween With My Silhouette...

First, let me tell you that I am not being compensated in any way for this!!!!  It's one of the happy things that I just really like so I have to share!  Really!  But, if Silhouette wanted to make me a very happy person, I wouldn't say NO if they offered!  ;)

I told you a few weeks ago that I got a Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter.  Well, I had no idea how much fun I was going to be having with this baby!

I received a card for $10 worth of templates from the Silhouette store so I went there right away to check out what kinds of templates they had and stumbled across these:
Can you tell what they are?  They are templates to cut out designs for your fingernails!  Can't you believe it????

Now, we all know how much I like to decorate my nails.  Yep, there's a template for that!  :)

I have tried several things for adding interest to my nails from stickers to drawing with a pen to trying to use the stencils (which never have worked for me!!!!!)

Knowing that Halloween was coming up, I used some of my credits to download a couple of the nail templates.

I found out that I could cut contact paper with the cutter when I cut out the design to customize my Silhouette:

So, I bought some clear contact paper at Wal-Mart and some black nail polish.  The contact paper would allow me to place it where I wanted it since I could see through it and had just the right amount of tack to stick well but not pull off the polish underneath.
All I had to do was choose a victim nail and peel off the cut out sticker.
Then, I placed the sticker on my nail...
Then glopped the black polish on over the top...
Then peeled the sticker off...
And Voila!

A newly painted spider web!  How fun is this????
(just ignore the bit of black polish I glopped onto the side of my finger--it'll come off!)

So, here are my nails all spiffed up for Halloween thanks to my Silhouette!  
There are a BUNCH of different designs available and I plan to use most of them!  Oh yeah...You BET I DO!!!!

Okay, so this is definitely a happy hump day item!

Are you ready for Halloween?
