Happy Father’s Day
Hi Silhouette Users, this week we are showcasing the fabulous Silhouette Pen Holder.
I love that I can use any pen or pencil in my Cameo to create images.
This week our theme is Father’s Day.
Choosing A Design From The Silhouette Design Store
My favourite part of any project is choosing the design.
I wanted a phrase that could easily be drawn and one that would suit a scrapbook page.
I loved this phrase but changed it very slightly from ‘our family’ to ‘us’.
I used a glittery green pen, which I added to the pen holder using the medium fitting.
I loaded my paper and set my machine to sketch rather than cut.
Adding A Second Design
The phrase looked a bit plain so I added a globe shape. I had this one already so removed all the inner design placed it over the words and cut the shape.
I then hand punched some holes to stitch (but could have done this with the Cameo).
Choosing A Subtitle
I looked through some of the dedicated sketch designs and bought AWESOME! Sketched using the same green pen, then cut with the Cameo, it looks great on top of the photograph.
I added a sketched scallop circle and a couple of sketched labels.
Adding my journaling to one under the photograph.
