My new Silhouette Cameo arrived on Friday and over the weekend I played with it a little to try getting the hang of everything. I am just taking my time getting to know the machine, but here are some highlights so far:
*Able to cut right away with only some basic directions
* It cuts my favorite fonts right off my computer so my printed journal boxes will match cut titles
* When it cuts fold lines they fold so easy SEE..
This little heart topped box is a Lori Whitlock download on Silhouette Studio. It comes with a heart shaped border as well, but I decided not to use that for this box. I made the box fill my mat and after cutting the box I measured the sides so I could cut the layers I added on. All the paper is DCWV Spring Fling (both printed and solid).
Scrapvillage. It is very similar to the font on Hello Kitty Fonts and seeing as that is a favorite of mine I am sure it will be used often.
I wanted to have the letters pop out a little more so I used my Glossy Accents on the top heart closure and the letters. This is what it looked like while waiting to dry (Thankfully, I remembered to fold it up before putting the letters on as I wanted the letters to be in order with the "L" in front.)
That is all for now. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I am going to link this up over at Sarah Hamer Designs for her Tuesday Link Up Party.
