So now that you are oh-so-excited about Silhouette Handmade, we wanted to turn the spotlight on LV Manalo of Odineva Events + Designs so you can hear about how she uses her CAMEO to take her business to a whole new level.



My name is Lourd Viernaliza Avenido Manalo and I go by L.V. to make everything easier. I am a creative designer and event planner for Odineva Events + Designs living in San Diego, CA. I love to be creative and organized which is why I decided to pursue my dream a few years ago in creating an Event Planning and Design company. I get to plan special events and add a touch of my creativity.


My business is filled with different types of events including weddings, birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries and surprise parties. I put so much passion behind my work that I spend hours and hours just to make everything look perfect.


Fortunately for me, Silhouette gave me the best tools to expand my business. It has changed my life and gave me such a huge boost to my custom decor. I used to hand cut things with an xacto knife and boy was that time consuming. I started my business just planning things and getting premade custom decor online which felt so limited and not personalized.



LV Friendsgiving



Ever since I got my first machine, the Silhouette CAMEO, I have used it ever since. Every event I create custom banners, dessert table decor, party hats, napkin holders, cupcake holders and toppers, rosettes, and more. The possibilities are endless. I even used my machine to make all my wedding decor! Silhouette has helped my clients see that I can create custom decor for them.


Throughout this post I shared photos from my latest project- a FRIENDSGIVING event. It was such a hit and I had so much fun creating each and every piece.



We hope that LV inspired you to apply to our Silhouette Handmade program so you can help build your handmade business. If you would like to share how you use your Silhouette products in your business, leave us a comment below for an opportunity to be featured on our blog.

It has been such a pleasure getting to know LV and we know if we are ever in San Diego, she is our go to girl. Make sure to check out her website and follow along with her on Instagram.
