Welcome to the Love My Cameo blog hop! So glad you stopped by! If you just stopped by today to see what was going on, you are in luck! I'm the first part of the Love My Cameo blog hop! At the end of this post is the list of all the blogs that are on the hop in case you get lost.
Around 2 1/2 years ago I decided to buy myself a Silhouette machine as a friend of mine had said how much she loved the designs you could download. I went to the site to look for myself and was AMAZED! And the designers they hired to make the designs were some of my fav companies. Well now I have a library of over 10,000 designs (I got the Silhouette at the right time!) and have since upgraded to the Cameo. The only thing that was missing was people just like me with these machines to have a place to talk about them! Well that has changed as the Cameo seems to be the talk all around the internet now!
Being Valentine's Day is soon approaching, what could be better then a Love my Cameo blog hop to share the love we are all feeling for this amazing machine? In case you don't know, blog hops are easy! You start here, follow my link to the next blog, and keep on going! There will be loads of ideas and inspiration on the way! Be sure to follow the blogs on this hop to find out even more about the Cameo with the tutorials a lot of these blogs offer!
Enough babbling by me! Let's get started!
I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder for the Silhouette Cameo with a stylus to emboss on this Ten Second Studio's metal sheet. By adding the colored side of the metal sheet down to the Chomas Creations embossing mat, after embossing the colored side has a raised image you can sand to get this look! I had my pressure on 33 and my speed at 6. You can download the heart designs I'm using on this layout here... heart design
I then used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder to draw with a Sharpie paint markers (won't bleed into cardstock!) to draw the heart designs on the page. I had my pressure at 10 and my speed at 4.
I added some patterned paper to my page and finished it up with ribbon and buttons, and of course some pictures I took of my kiddies for Valentine's day along with words that made them think of what love is.
And what would Valentine's Day be without a card? This one is going to be for my hubby! I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with the Chomas Creations black metallic mini gel pen to draw the XOXO background. Then I used the linked by love stamp from Sarah Hamer Designs to stamp the sentiment on to the heart design. I thought it fit perfectly with the 2 linked hearts! I cut the heart design 3 times and then layered it so it would pop off my card a bit more.winner
