Yesterday I mentioned that I am now the proud owner of a Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutter (E-Cutter).
Although anything that has to do with technology scares the bee-gee-bees out of me, I tackled the Cameo head on! I failed miserably several times but then I was able to cut out a cute little frame. I was so proud! I almost pulled out my Big Shot and Banner Framelits to make myself a WINNER badge (‘cuz I’m comfortable with the Big Shot and Framelits).
After a few more practices, I cut out some letters and a saying using Stampin’ Up cardstock and Foil Sheets in silver. Check it out!
Did it turn out cute or what? I have a lot to learn still but hey, for my first project, I am beaming with pride! Christina called it her “OCU Swag”. She is thrilled (score one for the MOM!)
You can’t really see it in the picture but the saying is the silver Foil Sheet, then I punched some stars using the Merry Mini Punch Pack and silver Glimmer paper (every college girls must have bling).
I thought it would be fun to use this machine to make some other OCU stuff for her. You can cut vinyl, fabric, etc. Pretty much the same thing the Big Shot will do but now I can cut anything from My Digital Studio (Stampin’ Up’s digital software). Wahoo! The options are limitless!
Well, there is still that learning curve thing. I am working through it. My mind is just racing of things I can make for her and her roomie (whoever that might be).
Now, not to worry… Simply Simple Stamping is NOT going to become an E-Cutter website. Oh no no no. I am still all about stamping! Today I had some fun with the Happy Watercolor stamp set. This is the quickest card I’ve done in a long time. So pretty, don’t you think?!
I will be sharing a video tomorrow so I hope you will join me then! Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!!! Show the world you’re AWESOME today!!
