Hello friends! Brittany here, sharing this giant geotag project of mine with you all. As some of you may have learned over the past couple years, I am a BIG fan of thrifting & antiquing. One of my most recent adventures landed me some awesome vintage topographic maps for $1, which led me to this project!

Using Silhouette’s Adhesive Gold Vinyl, I cut out a large version of design #56297 from the Silhouette Design Store to adhere to the center of my map. I love this geotag design because to me it represents being here, being present, no matter where you are. I also love how the map texture plays through the letters of “here” and of course, the gold vinyl is still a fave. I was also relieved that I could use Silhouette transfer paper to transfer the vinyl onto old paper without it ripping or ruining any part of the map. The fact that I am able to cut out a design this large with my CAMEO and make new wall art in minutes still impresses me.¬†This machine is magic.

Hi friends, both old and new! My name is Brittany (of BSaz Creates) and I am so excited to be joining the Silhouette Creative Team for another year! Outside of the Creative Team, I am freelance designer and creative living out my life-long affair with crafts in Chicago, IL. I have used my Silhouette CAMEO for projects small and large. From invitations to storefront windows, Silhouette has expanded my capabilities as a one-woman design studio in so many ways. When I'm not working on a project (or even when I am) you can almost always find me eating ice cream and cuddling with my pint sized pup, Brody, who makes quite the appearance on my instagram. I can't wait to continue to share my projects with you all!
