Silhouette UK blog – Sketch and cut in software version 4

Hello everyone!

I am on the Silhouette UK blog today with a tutorial on how to use the sketch pens in the new Version 4 of the software. I only updraded to version 4 the day before yesterday, so it was interesting finding my way around in the new interface! Some features are more straightforward now, but others are harder to find! And yes, you guessed it right, sketching in different colours was one of those harder-to-find features!

Anyway, please join me on the blog for the step by step tutorial, and I hope it’s useful for you!

Hello everyone!

Today I am over on the Silhouette UK blog with a step by step tutorial on how to create a background made with circles for either scrapbooking or cardmaking. Please pop over to the blog to check it out!

This is the layout that I have created. I have used Pink Paislee’s Oh My Heart papers for my circles and the embellishments are mainly from Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams and a couple of bits from Pink Paislee’s Take Me Away (and some other bits and pieces from my stash)

So happy together

Silhouette UK blog – Geometric background tutorial

Hello Silhouette friends!

I am over on the Silhouette UK blog today with a step by step tutorial on how to create geometric backgrounds from scratch! And I would say it is easy enough for beginners to try too!

If you saw the layout I made the other day called “Motherly Love”, you can see I used a geometric background. I shared it on Facebook and I got a few complements on the cut file, so that inspired me to create this tutorial as I know a few people would like to make their own one, and it’s not that complicated… they just need to be shown!

Anyway, please pop over the Silhouette UK Blog and have a look!

And here’s a closer look to the card that I created specially for this tutorial. I used Paige Evans “Take me away” 6×6 papers. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! set.
