This week I received a Silhouette Cameo, so I’ve been playing around, learning how to use the software, and printing stickers! ¬†My first few attempts went rather poorly (and I wasted a lot of paper ūüôĀ ), thanks to a wonky blade that came with my Cameo. ¬†Thankfully, I got a bundle deal that included an extra blade. ¬†Popped that in, and it worked perfectly!


So yeah… those of you who are ordering these Silhouette machines… definitely pick up an extra blade! ¬†You never know if you’ll have the same issue I did or not! ¬†Not to mention, it’s a great idea to have an extra blade on hand anyway. ¬†Paper will dull blades, though the question is how quickly!

weatherstickersI’ve been working on my first set that will be for sale. ūüėÄ ¬†This is a weather icon set, with 6 different designs – cloudy, partly cloudy, rain, snow, sunny, and thunder storms! ¬†I’m just waiting to receive my planner so I can size them appropriately to fit the box below the day of the week in the family version of the planner. ¬†Since they’re size to fit there, they will be quite small, so there should be a good few on the sheet! ¬†My sheets are a little smaller than half of a regular piece of paper. ¬†Unfortunately, I use some due to the way the Silhouette cuts, and where it will cut. ¬†You see all of that cross-hatched area at the top? ¬†It wont cut that at all. ¬†I’ll also be trimming off the registration marks on the top and bottom, so I have nice looking pages. ūüôā

The software was a little odd at first, but after watching a few YouTube videos I quickly got the hang of it. ¬†It’s really pretty easy once you figure out what you need to do. ¬†All-in-all, I’m having a lot of fun with this machine and working on stickers, and can’t wait to get my planner so I can work on even more designs!
