More updates coming soon and sneak peeks!

Hello everyone!

Apologies for not posting anything in the last few days. I have actually been working hard on several projects all at once, but they are for the Silhouette Design Team so I can’t show you much at the moment!

I can, however, show you a little sneak peek of a few layouts that I have already finished but need to be kept secret for now! Shhhh…. Don’t tell anyone!

Silhouette UK Blog – Print and cut floral monogram

Good morning! Today I bring you my newest project for the Silhouette UK blog design team.

I’ve got a little secret to tell you… I have had my Silhouette Cameo for almost three years and I have never used the Print and Cut function… Until today! Crazy, huh? Being in the Silhouette design team is really going to make me make the most of my machine!

I was perusing the Silhouette Design Store and came across a gorgeous floral monogram, and I knew exactly there and then what I wanted to do: a beautiful scrapbooking layout featuring my precious little girl.

Please pop over the Silhouette UK blog to read more about my first adventure in Print and Cut!

Here is my layout:

Lottie Loves Paper Guest Designer Layout – Love you

Hello lovely scrappers!

Today I bring you layout #3 for Lottie Loves Paper.

Have I mentioned before how amazing this kit is? Well, in case you haven’t heard me say it before… it is! The lovely Sarah is also opening subscriber spaces from April onwards, so if you are thinking of subscribing, now is the moment! Go to the website and look for Monthly Kits.

So, my layout today is inspired on one of the layouts that I did at the Paige Evans workshop. For her class I chose the star die cut, however there was an option of a heart in the same style. When I sat down to create this layout, I wanted to have hearts and this cut file from the Silhouette store was just what I wanted.

I used the papers from the kit for backing my hearts. They are a mixture of Dear Lizzy Lovely Day and Pink Paislee Oh my Heart. The embellishments, both normal stickers and chipboard, are also from Dear Lizzy Lovely Day. There are also a few enamel dots that came with the kit. I want to say they are from Pinkfresh Studio, but I am not 100%. The black cardstock background also came with the kit, however I decided to spray a bit with white Heidi Swapp Color Shine from my stash. I think it breaks the “blackness” a bit and makes the background blend a bit softer with the heart die cut.

And here it is!

Loveyou

Silhouette UK Blog: Simple personalised bunting

Good morning everyone!

Today I bring you my first project as Team Member of the Silhouette UK Blog. It is exciting, but also extremelly scary! I don’t think I have been using my Silhouette Cameo to its full potential in the slightest, so I am going to use this amazing opportunity to try new things! However, for my first ever project I wanted to go for something easy, something that I know well… and that is my beloved Personalised Bunting!

The beauty of the personalised bunting is that the base is quite straight forward, however you can then decorate it as much or as little as you want, and the finished product will always be unique!

Please pop over the Silhouette UK blog for a step by step tutorial. I promise it’s really easy!
