Unboxing of the Foil Quill for Cameo, Cricut and ScanNCut

foil quill

Yahoooooo, my Foil Quill arrived this morning and I am really excited to get going with it.  Since a lot of you asked, I wanted to give you a bit of info that I’ve gotten from my research.

Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post where I do the LIVE unboxing!!!



The following materials can have foil applied to them easily:

  • card stock non textured
  • card stock textured
  • vellum
  • vinyl
  • cotton fabric
  • satin ribbon
  • thin fun foam
  • acetate
  • faux leather

I also found that the following types of foil work well with the Foil Quill

  • Contour creations
  • Spellbinders

Anyhooo, I’m pretty excited to get mine.  Grab yours here!! As I mentioned in the video, I got the smaller ‘set’ so that I could try it out and make sure that I liked how it worked.  If you’d like to take a look at the larger set, click HERE.

I will be testing mine later today and documenting my results with video so stay tuned.

BTW, I’ve ordered my Cameo 4….. are you getting one?? Check it out by clicking on the image below!!

    This Morning’s Live Class for Patrons

    This is a heads-up for people on Our LIVE class today will be on creating images larger than your mat for both Cricut and Silhouette Cameo.

    I will work through several examples and then we will work through this image together. BTW, we do have a tool in Silhouette Software that makes the slicing of images for PRINT then CUT MUCH more natural and a lot less noticeable.


    Join our SECRET (LIVE) class this morning by going here. This link will only work for today’s class. When you go to the link you will be asked to go to (or download) ZOOM which you WILL need.

    NOTE:  The LIVE class has ended BUT you can view it here for a limited time.


    We do have a LIVE class EVERY Saturday and I would encourage you to sign up. It is only $5 per month.

    Hobby Lobby Haul Cross the Shoulder Bag – Silhouette Studio or Cricut Design Space

    Welcome September!!

    We recently ‘enjoyed’ the Apple Festival in our town along with approximately 275,000 others! Most locals don’t go to it because our tiny main street is just jam packed with people. We did brave it this year since the weather was cooler. (I still don’t understand why the thing isn’t held in October!)
    Here’s a brief look at one of my favorite bands to play there for those of you who like OLDIES.

    Ok, on to the video link for the Cross Body bag. I hope you enjoy the video AND perhaps make one (or a few for gifts!) The FREE file is in the LIBRARY!!

    Create DIY Embossing Folders

    I was LIVE-ish today! Yep, I said -ish because I was live but didn’t know it. lol

    Anyway, in the class I demo how to create your OWN Embossing Folders for Cuttlebug or whatever embossing machine you might have.

    It is a LOT of fun to do and all you need is the backing to any papers that you have… you know… I mean that cardboard that is a little thicker than paper. OR, BETTER yet…. if you eat cereal, why not use a cereal box!!??

    Well, here is the link to the video and a link to a great SALE going on over at Silhouette for people who use a Cameo.

    I hope you have a wonderful day! I am off to create some more embossed folders!!!

    Knife Tool Effect in Silhouette Studio

    I LOVE using the knife tool to create some really cool edges on my card stock. I bet it could also be used for vinyl – I just haven’t tried it yet.

    Anyway, this CUTE card would be perfect to send to a crafty little one that you know! You can send it to them as is OR you can color it as I show in the video OR you can let him or her color it!!

    I hope you enjoy using the knife tool and if you’re on FB that you share your creations there!!
