I am so excited today to be part of this fun blog hop! When Sarah over at Pink Cricut asked if I would join her and Amy Chomas in a Silhouette Cameo inspired blog hop, I was thrilled!! I love my Cameo!! If you asked me to pick my favorite feature, I couldn't. I love everything about it!
If you have come from Kelly over at http://findingtimetocreate.blogspot.com/, then you are in the right place. You definitely want to start at the beginning of the hop so you don't miss a thing!!
It was so hard for me to pick just one project because the silhouette has so much it can do! That being said, I combined two of it's features :-) I decided to put a couple of 3D projects together from the Silhouette Store and then use the "Print and Cut" feature to finish it off.
The 3D designs in the store are so easy to assemble and look beautiful when they are done. I started with the 3D Toolbox, but I left the handle off so I had more room inside. I decided I wanted to fill it with these beautiful 3D strawberries, which I filled with candy! I used my Silhouette studio to change the sizes up to what I wanted and then ran them through my Cuttlebug to give them the look of real strawberries. I used my cuttlebug on the leaves also and inked the edges just to add a little bit more detail to them. The strawberries come together with twine or ribbon and took no time to put together. The smaller ones are a perfect fit for Hershey Kisses ;-)
The tag is a "Print and Cut" feature of the silhouette. I made it the size I wanted in the studio and printed it on my printer. The Silhouette reads the registration marks and cuts it out perfectly! I hand wrote the sentiment to go with my strawberries and LOVE how it turned out!
Here is a detailed view of the leaves...
...and here is the tag! The silhouette cut it out perfectly!!
It wouldn't be a blog hop without some type of blog candy now would it?! If you become a follower and leave a comment on what your favorite thing about the cameo is so far, I will send one lucky follower all the cuts I used to make this kit (embossed and inked also) so you can make this project and see how easy it is to put together (even if you don't own the cameo...yet)! Plus, a picture never does it justice and it does look even more delicious in person! Make sure you leave a way for me to get a hold of you :-)
I am now going to send you on your way to the super talented Gaby!
If you get lost along the way, here is a list of everyone in the blog hop!
Thank you for visiting me today!
