Do you remember last May when I got a Silhouette Cameo for my birthday?
I am ashamed to admit I haven't really used it much since I got it. Most of that is due to the fact that my laptop crashed last summer and my desktop can't handle the program. But now that I have my new fancy laptop, I've started to figure out how this bad boy works!
First project I worked on is cutting a vinyl phrase to put on the wall at work. It look me a super long time to figure out how to do this and I definitely made some mistakes, but my photo manager got the saying she wanted and she's happy with it.
Super awesome cell phone picture too! The hardest part was cutting out the little Mary Poppins!
Even though that saying didn't work out all nice and perfect, it gave me the motivation (and extra vinyl paid for by my boss) to create something I've been wanting to put in my house for a long time....
I love it! It's right above my closet in the entry hall. We have vaulted ceilings and that huge empty space was screaming for some attention!
And then last weekend, after a little vodka, I felt silly and made these...
For those of you who have a Silhouette, here's a tip for you....
The mustaches and the fancy scroll thingy besides my last name are both fonts. Go to dafont.com and look under the wingdings section. You can find TONS of cool shapes and things to use on your machine without having to pay for the graphics. Just download and install with your regular fonts and type away!
Now that I'm getting the hang of how this machine works, I might just start putting vinyl on everything! Haha
Hope you are having a great week!
