Valentine's Day Crafts and a Silhouette Promo

Thursday, February 6, 2014
The last time I posted about the Silhouette Cameo was when we updated the family room for the holidays with my DIY look for less rendition of Osborne & Little's Coronata Star Wallpaper. Since then I've been busy brainstorming projects where I can use my Cameo. This little guy has SO many capabilities it blows my mind.

I knew I had to put it to good use for Valentine's Day. So I decided to create a fun piece of interactive artwork that we can display. I used the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition Software to import a custom image that I created in Illustrator. The Designer Edition Software is different than the Studio Software that is included. The big difference? Well, there are a more few more options and the biggest option, in my opinion, is the capability to import your own artwork. SO key.

First I created this design in Adobe Illustrator and saved it as a .svg file.


And then I imported it into my library using the Designer Edition Software. Using the "Cut Style" tool, I selected the "Cut" option, which created a cut line outlining the heart and letters. Then I simply sent it through to my Silhouette Cameo. I used black contact paper that I had lying around.


Next I peeled off the contact paper and applied the custom decal onto a piece of nice cardstock.

Then I had the resident artist, aka Arden, blow us all away with her water coloring skills.


It turned out pretty fun, don't you think? I can't wait to frame it and hang it.
