I am a Silhouette newb.
I debated getting one for a long time. I thought, “What would I do with one of those things? I am clean and simple. I am linear and graphic. I’m not the frou frou crafty type!”
It would be just one more scrapbooking tool that would gather dust in some remote corner of my already too crowded dining room. Right?
I had no idea how wrong I was, but since I’ve plugged this thing in (and taken a few classes at KerriBradford.com), I am realizing more and more that this tool really does work with my whole minimal aesthetic.
I designed this set to make the things I’m going to show you today. I wanted ornaments to serve as tags. I wanted other shapes to serve as, well, things that could go into a page pocket. I wanted to play with practicing how to outline PNG files and making stuff for the upcoming Christmas season.
Like these gift tags:
I know. The cuteness, and yet the clean-ness.
And stuff for pockets.
I have never felt quite so crafty. (At least not since a few weeks ago when I heat embossed for about the fourth time in my entire life.)
So today I want to share with you how I used my Silhouette Studio software to get crafty.
Questions? Comments? I’m happy to answer or read any you have.
