Easy is the name of the game….

…when you have oodles of holiday cards to make! Unless you started months ago, you’re running out of time to get going on your holiday cards. So, now might be the perfect time to dust off your Silhouette Cameo, update the software, and try out an e-cutter design for quick and simple holiday cards that still say WOW!

Easy – like stencils!

Digital Cutfiles are gaining popularity, and fast! I think it’s because they’re a lot like stencils. They’re easy to use, inexpensive, reuseable, and you can create with them in lots of different ways. Nobody ever said that handmade cards had to be super-involved, full of layers, and require you to use every technique you’ve ever used!

I mean, really! Do I even need to tell you how I made this card? I cut the file and I slapped it on some gold mirror card and attached it to the card base. Done. Period. End of story! 😀 But, it’s AAAWWWEEESSSOMME! Amiright?

Sometimes, a card is “WOW” enough in its simplicity. I think that’s what a good cutfile overlay can bring to the design table. And, like all of the other Scrapbook.com exclusive products, these cutfiles do not disappoint. They are easy to use and easy to mix & match for any project you have in mind.

Using the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition

I’ve had my Cameo for years. I’d say I’m due for an upgrade, as I think I have the original Cameo (not the 2, 3 or the new 4). But, I haven’t used it enough to justify going for a new model. It works just fine. I can still get parts for it (a total benefit of the Cameo series), and the updated software still works with it.

One thing I can recommend is to get the Designer Edition of the Silhouette Studio. I have always had this software, so I did not realize that having the free software has limitations using the SVG files. The Designer Edition is a one-time $50 investment and will make working with cut files a TON easier. Like, click & drag easier.

Time to Add to your Crafter’s Toolbox

If it’s been a while since you used your Silhouette Cameo, or if you’ve never really known how to use it, now’s the time! I’m sharing exactly how I created my project by using two of the designs in the cutfile set with the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software.

*note that I am only familiar with the Silhouette Cameo and the Designer Edition software. If you have questions about other e-cutters, or other versions of the Studio Designer software, you can ask, and I’ll try to help the best I can. No guarantees though 🙁

Time to go digital!

See? It’s not too hard to use the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software. You can get great results like this too! I hope you enjoyed learning about this new product and you give it a try too!
