I am having so much fun playing with my Silhouette Cameo. I own several die cut machines. The 13 inch Black Cat Cougar, E-craft and the other one that uses cartridges. Each machine is different but I truly love the Silhouette Cameo for it's ease of use and the amazing files that you can get online at the Silhouette Store. I decided to purchase the file subscription service. I used a coupon and ended up getting it for 18.00 a month. You get 150.00 each month and most images are .99. A bargain compared to buying a cartridge where you only wanted one or two images off it. They have lots of 3d Items that I am in love with. I know several ladies that will be having a baby soon so I thought that I would try my luck at this cute baby shoe.
In The Silhouette Studio Software I opened the Baby Shoe. I decided to make one for a boy and a girl. Since this was just a test cut to see how it would look I decided to create my own pattern in the software by flood filling with a girl pattern and a boy pattern.
Then I did the print and cut. I have a wide format printer that I picked up cheap last year at Office Depot so I was able to do this on a 12x12 piece of white cardstock. The Cameo handled the print and cut like a dream!
Here are the finished shoes. I think that they are so cute. I did take the advice of the creator of the file to lace the shoe before gluing. I tried glue dots on the pink shoe and liquid glue around the blue. I prefer the liquid glue. It took longer to put the shoe together because I had to hold each tab and wait for it to dry before moving on to the next. I think that they turned out pretty darn cute!
