And here it is the February card kit from Studio Calico – Front Row. I was on a roll. I made all 6 cards in one afternoon. I love being able to sit down and make all the cards in one kit. Now I just need to figure out what to do with my left over scraps.
In a couple of days Studio Calico will be releasing their March kits. Stay tuned!
So it has been a long while since I have made a card. But a couple of weekends ago I sat down and make 8 cards. I was so excited when my Studio Calico card kit came in the mail. This was my first kit and I love it. I love how everything is co-coordinating and you get embellishments and even stamps. I love it because I don’t think I would have purchased these items but it all comes together. It was a nice challenge to use up as much product in the kit.
I present to you some of the cards that I created…
If you are still interested I believe you can still get the card kit I used here, Sock Hop. And you can even start your own card kit subscriptions as well.
Hello, I wanted to continue on showing you how to create different edges using your Silhouette Studio. So today I am going to show a tutorial in creating your own scallop edge.
It is very similar to creating the stamp edge border. The main step that is different is that you don’t use the subtract tool and use the weld tool instead
Start my making a square or any shape you want you want the scallop on
Create a bunch of small circles, copy and pasting them is the best way keep the scallops all the same size.
Space the circles as close as you like for a tighter scallop. Select all your circles and Align Center and then Space Vertically, I like to group them together so they are easier to work with
Now place the circles over your square edge and align them however you like
Select all the shapes, circles and the square, and then weld them together
And now you have your scalloped edge
Before welding the circles you can make the scallop size larger by just selecting the circles and dragging one of the points and expand to your liking.
If you want to extend the length of the scallop but do not want to change the size of the scallop I would just duplicate the circles, before welding – Step 5, and then move them so that they are in one continuous line. And then move them over your shape and you will most likely need to trim off the the extras with the Knife tool. This is the only way that I know of doing this.
It’s that time of the year again…. Back to School. I feel for the students going back. I remember having to leave the summer carefree days behind. In honour of the those going back to school here is a little something for you.
I coloured the zombie girl with Copic Markers. The image comes from Copic Marker Scrabooking blog,Making Our Mark. Used some red Rub On Letters and regular old black marker for the border. And rub one some brown ink on Kraft card stock.
I hope school isn’t too bad for those who have to go.
Today I am going to show you how to make your own Stamp Edge using the Silhouette Studio.
Start by making a square or any shape you want the stamp edge on
Create one small circle and then copy and paste a bunch of others. When you copy and paste you ensure that the size of the all the circles are the same.
Select all the circles next you want to Align Center and then Space Vertically
Place the circles over your square and align them as center as you want
Take your knife tool and create a line over the border of the square, this will cut the circles in half
Delete the outer half of the circles and trim up the edges so that everything fits into the square
Then select the square with the half circles and you use the Subtract tool
And now you will have your stamped boarder
Of course you can modify this by having smaller or larger stamped edge. If you need a border around your entire square I would recommend that before you use your Subtract tool to duplicate that row of half circles. That way you keep the circle size and the spacing exactly the same. I even Group the circles together to make them easier to work with.
