Create Custom Gift Wrap with Silhouette Cameo & Mint

With Thanksgiving in the books, it’s time for a “full-court press” to Christmas!   When Silhouette America asked me to share some Christmas Gift wrap ideas,  as usual, my thoughts went to how I could incorporate cutting felt on my Cameo 4 for this project.   I used the Silhouette Cameo Pro for these projects, but they can all be adapted to be used on any Silhouette Cameo 4, Cameo Plus, or the Pro.   I am using the Rotary {Read More}

Using the Align Feature & FREE Design Download

I don’t know about the kids in your life, but my grandkids LOVE Chicken Nuggets!   Pretty much a staple in their diet — McDonald’s, Chick-Fil-a, Frozen at home — doesn’t seem to matter.   So I thought that this design was PERFECT for a shirt for them! I want to share with you how I created this file, using the Charley and Blue Font Duo from the “Little Craft Bundle Vol. 9” at Design Bundles — and the awesome {Read More}

Designing with Flexishapes in Silhouette Studio — and FREE Cut file!

I love designing with Flexishapes in Silhouette Studio!   If you aren’t familiar with this feature, it is only available in Designer Edition + or Business Edition.   While there are so many great features in both of these versions, Flexishapes is definitely one of my favorites.   Flexishapes alone is enough reason to upgrade — in my opinion!     I have created this cute little Candy Corn pattern with Flexishapes & Point Editing in Silhouette Studio Business Edition! {Read More}

Printing with the Silhouette Alta

A few weeks ago, I unboxed my original Silhouette Alta & began setting it up, because I wanted to print ear saver hooks for healthcare workers.   I have to admit, its been in the box way too long!   In the time since then, I’ve literally printed hundreds of hooks, acquired the new Silhouette Alta Plus — and learned a lot of 3D printing with these machines!   I’m not really sure what I was afraid of!   I have {Read More}
