I'll fully admit that I am a slow crafter. But that doesn't mean I don't try to save time. In fact, I often spend hours and hours trying to figure out a quick or easy way to do something. It's a problem, I know. I did, however, find a quicker way to create my weekly handouts for my Sunday church class using the Silhouette. It's called" print and cut," and it has changed my life.
First I created the text for my handout in Photoshop (with four on a sheet). I saved it as a JPEG file and opened it in my Silhouette ROBO Master software. Next I selected my shape (a scalloped square) and sized it perfectly around my text. I copied and pasted it around each text box. Then I told the software to print it to my computer. It prints the text or picture, but not the shape it's going to cut. It also prints little registration marks on the corners so the Silhouette knows where to cut.
Then I fed it into my Silhouette and told it to cut.
And it did!
Perfect little scalloped squares with text perfectly centered. So cute! Of course, not quite perfect. Yet. I had to add a little patterned paper, ribbon, flowers, and buttons. Because I'm certifiably crazy like that.
Next item of business: Where the heck is our Silhouette giveaway winner?! Are you out there Bryana Banana? Who knows, maybe she's on vacation on a remote island with no WiFi. Either way, we're going to give her until Saturday to contact us, and if we haven't heard from her, guess what? You may still have a chance to be our lucky winner! We'll go back through our spreadsheet with the comments from our original giveaway post and pick a new winner. Stay tuned!
