Who is sweet? Engraving with the Chomas Creations engraving tip in the Silhouette Cameo

If you didn't yet know that you can engrave with your Silhouette Cameo you are in for a pleasant surprise!  Because you can!  And all is takes is the Chomas Creations engraving tip in place of your blade.
I got these metal sheets from Silhouette to play with.  I used the blade setting in the Silhouette Studio software and a speed of 5 and a thickness of 33 with a double cut.  All of these owls are from the Studio store.    
Here are the results of all the fun :)

Labels with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

I made a few mixes with essential oils and have needed to label them for awhile (instead of smelling them to figure out which is which).  I got this adhesive silver foil, used my Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with a Sharpie ultra fine point marker, and made some cute labels!  I used some of my empty bottles and removed the adhesive with lemon essential oil (go figure!) and then added my stickers!  They stick so well to the bottles.  And I think they are super cute!  For the recipes I used for these oils, head to my oily blog!  Getting Oily
If you are interested in learning more about essential oils feel free to ask!  I''ve been using them for over 2 1/2 years now and I'm always trying new ways of doing things for my health.  amyc222@yahoo.com

On the farm with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

Look at these cute farm animals from the Silhouette Studo store that I drew right on my background paper with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder and the Zig Ball .5mm pens.  Most gel pens are .7mm, so for sketching the thinner the tip, the better! 
The tractor was a Studio file that I used the Sketch feature on in Designer's Edition to make it resemble the animals more.

Here is the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with the Zig pen in the Cameo machine.  I used a speed of 8 and a thickness of 9 to draw everything on the background page.

I also did my journaling right on my 12x12 background paper.  The font is Lettering Delights Sporty.
The barn is a Studio download but I welded the title in Studio and cut them both out and layered them.
Here is my son on his field trip as well as some ribbon to pop on the page.
