Print & Cut then Foil – Silhouette Studio

Create this stunning card in Silhouette Software with me! First Print then Cut both the image and the sentiment, then Foil using the Foil Quill from We R Memory Keepers.

I am absolutely thrilled with how my card turned out!  Do you have the Foil Quill yet?  You may want to consider it if you love cards like this one!!

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!!

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!!

Cricut Card Template (Silhouette too!)

We at PattyAnnesPlace have been on a card-stock, card-making kick lately.  I guess with the holidays coming up it is the perfect time to get started making special cards for the special people in our lives!

If you aren’t a member of our Pateon group (the Software one) you missed a great class this past Saturday. We had a guest teacher, Stephanie, who joined us all the way from the UK! The class was fabulous.  If you would like to see what some of the students created during and after class, please check out our Facebook Groups (links above). You can also watch a replay of the class by joining us at patreon.com/pattyanne

Continuing in the card-stock, card-making vein, I created this card today and wanted to share it with you.  There are files for both Cricut and Sihouette in the Library.  If you use Cricut, make sure you grab the additional file with the EXTRA sentiments! Of course you can always create your own.  NOTE to CRICUT USERS: Be sure to resize the file before ungrouping.  (The width size is included in the file name.)

By the way, those of you using Silhouette Studio Software for your Cricut….. I created the super cool edging on the black piece in the card with the knife tool.  I think that revisiting the knife tool will be this week’s lesson on Saturday   patreon.com/pattyanne

Here is the video. And, don’t forget to grab the free files!!
