Yesterday my daughter turned 18 (shocking I know!) I wanted to make a page while the thoughts of this day were fresh in my head. And oh boy do I have some thoughts on it...
I used the Chomas Creations engraving tip to etch the circles into the Core'dinations kraft-core cardstock. I had my speed set at 7, my pressure at 33, and I used double cut. Then I used a brillo pad to give a light sanding to the surface to clean it up.
The eighteen title was a download from the Studio store called eighteen. I added it on one of the bracket designs.
Then I added one of my daughter's senior pictures (taken by me!) and some chipboard hearts (I'm bringing chipboard back!) and buttons.
I also did a birthday card for my son that is 14 today! Yes my kids are born 4 years and 1 day apart! I used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with the Paper Mate flair pens. They are like felt tip pens, but don't squish down when you use them in the Cameo, and they don't bleed into cardstock! You can download the happy birthday background for your card that I designed here... happy birthday. The font I used was altera (looks like a single lined font!) I used my speed at 5 and thickness at 7 to draw the background. I inked this chipboard star red (see I told you I was bringing chipboard back!) and attached it to my page with some ribbon. Super quick card that doesn't look it!
Welcome to the Getting’ Crafty with the Cameo blog hop. We’re all so happy to have you hopping along with us, so grab a drink and sit back and enjoy. There is a great line up with some amazingly talented ladies that are super excited to share their projects with you using their Silhouette Cameo (if you get lost anywhere in the hop, the list of the ladies is at the bottom of this post).I don't know if you know this about me, but I LOVE blog hops! I was sooo glad to be included in this one and I can't wait to see what everyone does hehe! I just love learning all these new things to do with the Cameo, and this is an easy way to find out!
