I’m continuing my print and cut Q&A with a video about modifying print and cut files. We often look at P&C files as a done deal…. but they’re not. You can modify the cut lines, change colors and so much more. I don’t do many print and cut projects but it’s not because print and cut is difficult…. Confession time, right?! My printer is usually out of ink, lol!
Today, I spent some time exploring sketch designs and pen tools for the Silhouette. So often, I dedicate a large amount of time to some of the more complex tools in Silhouette Studio that I forget about all the bottoms on the left! 😆
It’s really easy to draw or modify designs using the Pen tool. The lines can be set to automatically “smooth out” if you don’t have the best digital drawing hand.
Here is a look at the final product. Thanks for stopping by!
I love cards with a lot of pop that require minimal work! If you’ve followed my card-making escapades for a while, you know I tend to swing back and forth on the style pendulum with ease. 🙂 I’ve never been a huge fan of super distressed or shabby-chic but I’m not afraid of layers of pattern paper or tons of white space. Today, I decided to try and blend my need to use pattern paper with my love of white space. I had a special request for set of shaker cards and I knew “tons of work” would turn into “never get done”, lol! My goal: minimal supplies, fast, no stamps, use up some patterned paper….
I’m back in my craft room from my vacation time teaching summer school and I’ve had a few request for a sticker related tutorial. Before stickers were “cool” I was making them for student work to say “Good Job!”. Now stickers are cheap so most teachers wouldn’t make them but I liked the ability to make HUGE stickers to put on the front of amazing papers. 😀
Are you a planner or a pretend(plan)er? Don’t think I’m judging, I’m being serious right now. Which are you? I’m a pretender! 😀 I own pretty planners that I may (or may not) use. I occasionally doll up a weekly spread with washi and stamps but more often than not, I just scribble the weeks events in without much thought as to how it looks. Despite my love of technology, I still depend on a paper planner to roll my life into one neat package. I would love to say the reason is because I’m old-fashion and want pencil and paper but that would be a lie. The truth is, digital calendars (a’la Microsoft Outlook) make me think of work and that’s no bueno!:p
One form of planner decoration that we all can stick with are covers! Every since EC launched removable covers I have been all about customizing the outside of my planner. You can pay EC to do this for you but why bother when you have a handy, dandy Silhouette program sitting on your computer. 🙂
