Silhouette Plus October Challenge Winner

As some of you know a challenge is hosted each month on the Silhouette Plus Forum. We had many excellent entries. It was also a lot of fun.
 I am so impressed with all of them but the winning entry is absolutely outstanding. The winner of October's challenge is one of our forum's board moderators and host of her blog Finding Time to Create, Krafting Kelly. She is remarakably talented and is such an inspration to all cutting machine and crafters. I will try to post some of the other entries here later but this one I just had to share while I had the time to post.

Congratulations to Kelly and thanks for your wonderful inspirations.

Studio Patterns

One of the many tings I love about the Studio software is to be able to add patterns to designs. You can do this in a couple of ways, I have a tutorial on my YouTube channel on how to drag and drop patterns using digital paper. If you have the Silhouette Studio Designer Editon you can also load your own patterns. Here are some I made to share. Click on the link if you would like to add them to your collection of digital paper or patterns.

Faux Embossing

I love Photoshop. One of our moderators (Barbara) reminded me of this great technique and shared a terrific tutorial for this technique over at Scrapper's Guide. This is an example of what I made using a similar technique for seals on my last year's Christmas card envelopes. I'm looking forward to making a new one for this year's cards.

Here's a look at my faux embossed reindeer seal using clipart from Scandinavian Christmas by Susan Seals. Check out this tutorial to create your very own.

Here is another example of the faux embossing technique you will learn to make at the Scrapper's Guide site linked above.

Tis the Season & Cameo News

Here I am once again jumping a holiday. I can't help it. Christmas is so much fun! There are all sorts of card and craft making going on during this time of year. I designed a pop-up Merry Christmas card I'll be sharing in the Silhouette Plus forum as soon as I get the test cut done. Yes, I like to test cut everything! With my new Cameo all fired up to do some holiday crafts this will be a exciting year of Christmas crafting.

Speaking of the new Cameos; our Silhouette Plus group forum has a new look and a whole new forum area dedicated to the new Cameos. In the Cameo forum we have Cameo Chat, Cameo Tips & Tutorials, and more. One of the many great things about our group is; they are most helpful and share some great tips. For example; we now have a downloadable Word and PDF document with Ratchet Blade settings for various types of material that have been cut with the new ratchet blades. One of them I'm pretty excited about is the light weight chipboard...woohoo!! I can see the projects now.

Okay, back to business. Here's a link to some Christmas files I would like to share with my followers and visitors. Remember, there are even more at the Silhouette Plus forum so come on by for a visit. We know you will want to join in the fun, sharing, and learning.
