It saves me TIME because I can just create the title or shape I want instead of digging through my letter stickers or embellishments looking for it.
It saves me MONEY because I can make EXACTLY what I want using supplies I already have on hand.
It saves me STRESS because I don’t have to think, “Oh, those pinks don’t QUITE match,” or, “If ONLY I had an arrow shape that would fit precisely in this blank spot.” I just whip it up and cut it out!
I have had my CAMEO for several years now, but I recently upgrade to the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software package. It allows me to cut .SVG files that I can import to my Silhouette library. It has opened up a whole new world!
I’ve now started using my CAMEO to cut shapes to use in my art journal, like this:
Here’s how I did it. I imported an SVG file (“important” from Lori Whitlock) into the Silhouette Studio using the Designer Edition software. Then I cut it out, and used the positive image as a template in my art journal. I covered it with black acrylic paint, let it dry, and then traced the letters in white, added some Distress Stickles, and peeled it up:
Then I went to town on the page, adding other elements. Then “voila,” as they say in Gay Paree!
And you know that me being me, this whole process took less than 30 minutes. That’s how I roll.
