    State Your Love

    Advertisements
    So I saw an idea to use a state silhouette and use the abbreviation in a short saying. Here's one I made for our current location (our first home together) and I'm planning on doing IN and TN for where we're from. IN should be easy... TN is giving me some trouble.

    Here's some words I came up with: hotTNess, parTNer(s/ed/ing), cuTNess, sofTNess, vasTNess, greaTNess, lighTNing, sweeTNess...

    Any good quotes or lyics? Doesn't HAVE to be romantic or lovey dovey since it's that state he's from.



    I plan on framing these and putting them up on the wall somewhere.

    TIA

    Oh and what do you think of the font for the CA one? I won't have the letters colored in since I'll be cutting it on scrapbook or cardstock paper and put a contrasting color underneath. I just added color so it'd stand out better on here.

    This is the basic concept: Art State Print

    Should I lowercase all the letters except the abbreviation?

    So Cute! I would lower case everything but the CA, I kind of had to look for it at first. Or put it in a different color like the one on Etsy. Did you design the states yourself or did you find them somewhere?

    I know it doesn't have the whole play on words but you could just put "Sweetest thing out of Tennessee"
    Kind of has a ring to it?
    The idea is super cute though, I like it!

    Yeah, the CA is kind of hard to spot. I'll probably put a different color underneath where the CA will call on top of, too. Maybe same color for CA and the heart.

    And I got the state shape from the Silhouette Online store. It was a free shape of the week and had the entire country. I ungrouped all the shapes to get what I wanted specifically. I'll use my Silhouette Cameo to cut the shape and letters out. I'll have to post pictures after I do it. Just don't have any good frames as of now to put them in.

    That could work. It is cute, even if it isn't like the CA one.

    Hmm... how about:

    my parTNer in crime



    Oh look! This print uses the letters consecutively in two different words... that could work too.

    This is cute! I am not very helpful with phrases, but when you finish post a pic I want to see!

    Can you fill in the CA letters so they are solid (Kind of like the first pic), while the rest is an outline (like the second pic). It's such a wonderful idea but you really don't even notice the CA.
