How to Print then Cut 14″ Nutcrackers

These 14″ Print then Cut Nutcrackers were soooo much fun to create. To create them I just grabbed a free image off of google images and brought the images into Silhouette Studio (for either my Cricut Explore Air or my Cameo).

The most fun part was embellishing them!! I can’t wait to use these as part of my decorations this Christmas!!

How to Make your own SVGs – LIVE on YouTube

Hey everyone!

I am going to show how to make these images into svgs on YouTube LIVE today.  Not sure of the time so please make sure you are subscribed to my channel AND CLICK the BELL so that you get alerted!

I will be using Silhouette Studio and creating these svgs for ANY machine….much like you can do in Inkscape but it is much easier to use Silhouette Studio (IMHO).

Below are the images we will be working on.  What’s that?  You say you don’t want to create these images??? Not to worry….what you learn in THIS class can be used on ANY image that you’d like (think DISNEY!)

So, please grab these images.  Simply right click on the image and save to your computer so that you can work right along with me!!!

(Hugs!)

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!!

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!!
