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.

Sketched Labels

I added a sketched scallop circle and a couple of sketched labels.

Adding my journaling to one under the photograph.

The Completed Card

I hope I have demonstrated what a useful tool the pen holder is as I sketched my main title, a subtitle, my journaling and made a couple of labels as embellishments.
