May Happenings with Terri Johnson Creates

May is probably my favorite month of the year — and this May is no exception!   Winter is really over, and everything is blooming in Northern VA – its just beautiful!  AND — I can wear flip flops!  Yep, my time of year!

This May is jam packed with all types of events here at Terri Johnson Creates – -and I wanted to share those with you.


**First — this week, I am flying to Hawaii for the very first Silhouette Summit!  (I know, rough – -right??)   Silhouette America is sponsoring this event to release new product and product training!  So, not only am I pretty excited about a few extra vacation days in Hawaii, I’m really looking forward to seeing what Silhouette has in store!   We will be winding up on the 14th – -so I hope to have some news for you then!   Stay tuned for information on what’s coming!

**From Hawaii – I fly to Buffalo, NY – -for a weekend Silhouette Retreat at Marie’s Sewing Center, May 16-17!   I am so excited about this event, as we have 32 ladies registered!   We are doing a wide variety of projects to help them learn their Silhouette Cameo & software.  The retreat is full, but if you are in the area, we are having a Trunk Show lecture demo event on Friday evening @ 6:30.   Call Marie’s (716.434.2583)  & see if there is room to attend that event!


**BIG ANNOUNCEMENT will be coming the week of May 18th!!  I have been working for months on this project & am so excited to announce this to all of you!  So, be sure to keep an eye out on my Facebook Page and watch your email for an upcoming post that week!   You won’t want to miss this!


**And the final event in the month of May is our Silhouette & Spa weekend, May 28-31, 2015!    (OK, so I don’t really know these women in the picture — but I’m sure we will be having fun like they are!!)   I am so excited about this unique retreat!   This is going to be an intimate, hands-on-event in a delightful setting!  We will spend three and a half days of Silhouette instruction, creating, relaxing & fun!  The setting is Inspiration Inn – a beautiful retreat house – located near Lake Erie, in Oak Harbor, Ohio.  With plenty of workspace, a supply store, comfortable quarters, free Wi-Fi and delicious meals, it will be a weekend you’ll remember forever.  Check out the link for the Inn — its awesome!

During this “immersion weekend” into all things Silhouette, you will learn to create projects using adhesive vinyl, personalized glass etching, heat transfer vinyl, sketch pens, fabric, rhinestones, Print & Cut features of Silhouette — and so much more!   For those of you who are embroiderers, we will also have class on how to cut your machine embroidery appliqués. As time permits, there will be other demonstrations on a variety of other projects.   Optional Spa services are also available!!   To learn more & register, click here!     If you have questions, email me at — We have a few spaces still remaining!

So, as you can see — May is a busy month!  Lots of exciting things coming in the near future from us – -so stay tuned!  Can’t wait to share it all with you!   Oh, and — I have a guest post on the Silhouette School Blog that is going to be posted on Friday, May 8th!  Check it out & hope you enjoy the tutorial!   Until next time – -Terri

  1. Thanks for the update; have a great time in Hawaii and bring up back all kinds of new things. I have my Silhouette software on another computer and when I shut it down it give me an error every time. No machine hooked up to this software. On my laptop it does not.

    Best teacher every, thanks for all you do.


    • Aww, thanks Kathy!! I am really excited to see what’s coming & share it with all of you! That sounds like an odd quirk on your other computer? Have you updated to the most recent version of the software? Could be a bug — if not, try uninstalling & re-installing. See if that fixes it! Hugs to you, too!!
