Silhouette Rhinestone Template Kit

As soon as I saw that Silhouette were bringing out a kit to create items using rhinestone's I knew I had to have it. I love the effect rhinestone's gives to something. 

I ended up making two projects the first was this bag which I made as a practice and a bit of a joke to my mum. My mum often takes me out shopping and is forever calling me all sorts of names before she gets to mine, I wouldn't mind but I am her only child lol. I used three different sized stones on this, I think you can make out from the photo that the heart is size 10ss, the I and M are 16ss and the K is 20ss.

Linen Shopper - Ebay
Rhinestone Templates - Cute Rhinestone Heart Swirl #6625 by Samantha Walker (I offset it which gave this lovely effect) & the lettering was the classic alpha's that came as part of the kit.

My second item I made for Sophie my step granddaughter who loves ladybirds and so once I saw the template I knew it would be perfect. It was made with two sizes of stone most of it is size 16ss and then I added 3 size 20ss to the tips of each antennae for extra effect.

The outline shape is red and the spots are pink, I was going to do them black but once Sophie saw the pink version in the Silhouette store that was what she wanted. Here is a closer view, you may just be able to work out the colours in this photo.

These are really great projects. I like that you let us know what sizes you used. Using the different size rhinestones makes the designs even prettier.
