I finally got up the nerve to use my Cameo Silhouette…. yes, I was scared of it. It stayed in the box for two days. I thought, “This is silly, just take it out of the box and make something!” So I took it out of the box, set it up on my dining room table and read the instructions. I hooked it up to my computer and…. didn’t make anything. It was so intimidating!!!! I just could not believe that this thing could work it’s magic like the instructions say! Really? That easy? I decided to wait until the next day and THEN I would try it.
I was well rested the next day, my chores were done. I had no excuses. I sat down at the computer (silhouette was still hooked up to my computer)…. read the directions again and then I dove in…. I knew what I wanted to make…I’d seen it on a blog (don’t remember where – let me know and I will give credit to that blog!).
First, I downloaded a font that I liked (it was super easy) and then I typed what I wanted, loaded up my vinyl and pushed the print button. Then I waited and prayed I did it right…. and then the machine kicked into gear….and I waited…. and it worked!!! Here is what I made!
I traced the glass from the frame (both frames were thrift store cheap frames) onto some cream colored card stock that I had. Then I followed the directions on how to put the vinyl onto the card stock. I reassembled the frames and I was done!
For now, these are going to be going on my husband’s and my night stand. Once we get our new nightstands and bedside lamps, my plan is to hang them on the wall (between the lamp and the bed).
I’m thrilled with how my new Cameo Silhouette works!
I already have a plan for the next project!!!!
I’m linking up to these awesome parties.
