Designing with my Silhouette Cameo

As my title says, I have been crafting, just
not a lot for you to see.
I have been designing with the cameo.
I have taken a few online classes to learn some tricks & tips.
Then I decided to put some of them into action.
The first piece is a very simple digital card.
I printed off the background and then, using
some digital images I purchased online, I produced
my own print & cut files.
The paper is a free one supplied by Astrid Maclean which I then
resized to 4.5ins square and printed my two ladies onto it.
I then printed off my two ladies & cut them out
with the silhouette & attached one directly to the paper
& the other raised on foam pads.
This next piece I designed myself completely.
Unfortunately when you design in Studio
 it saves only as a studio file.
It has to be printed & scanned into a computer
to be changed to a jpeg.
So I apologise for the graininess of the picture.

I basically drew a rectangle, added the colour, flowers
& text then grouped it all together as one.
My very own print & cut design, with
of course, the truth for all to see
I truly am only at my Creative best when
wearing pyjamas!

Ladies are part of a collection called Clothier - Viva Artistry available from
