Hello Everyone. I have layout to share today that I created with my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store. This month I get to play with the delightful Pebbles - Family Ties collection. It is just so fresh and Summery! I love it.
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Pebbles (Family Ties); other - Greatest View flair/badge, Pebbles: chipboard & stickers, brads, October Afternoon sprinklers, Mister Huey's color mist, Versacolor ink; tools - silhouette portrait, my own cut files.
In between this post and the last, I've also had a chance to sit down and discover what my Christmas present can do! LOL! I spent half a day just playing. *grin* Of course I started off with basic techniques. I can now weld letters together so I can create a cursive title rather than just cut individual letters... easy peasy!
Then I thought I might like to try welding a few shapes together.. So I grabbed the "&" symbol and welded it to the circle frame. This frustrated me for some time because each time I tried to weld the two together, the "&" sign would just disappear or cut lines would still be in place! grrr... Not what I had in mind. :) Eventually after some (okay... many, many) google searches I gathered enough information to continue on with my quest of learning more about my new tool!! :D
Once I accomplished this, it was time for bigger things... Armed with knowing how to put together frames and shapes, I now wanted to put words into frames.
yay! It worked. *grin* No issues now and I am definitely on a roll! LOL! And Oh My!!! The possibilities are endless. :)
After I finished this LO, I became even more adventurous, and created a full subway art with frame (coming soon on another LO!). See... I have been busy. Probably too busy on the computer! LOL! It's a good thing that it is school holidays and the kids are happy to veg in front of the tv. *whoops*
Thanks for visiting..x
side note: The Silhouette machine I am using is a Portrait, rather than a Cameo. The only difference being that it's cutting width is smaller at 8.5in x 11in.... The perfect size for me!
