Silhouette Savvy Series – Stitching Guides

Hello Nerds, and friends!

It is time for a new entry of the Silhouette Savvy Series.   This is  a tutorial, that had been shown before, but since then the Silhouette software has been updated, and the new version does not perform all the commands from the previous version, so I want  to show you an updated version of the same tutorial.   So sit back, and enjoy the following video that will show you how to create the stitching guide followed by the completion of the layout:

 

 

As you can see in the video, the Silhouette software does not have a perforate edge command anymore, instead you have to tell the machine what to do by choosing the type of line you want it to create on the layout.

 

 

 

I used the cut-line to add the stitching that forms the background/title for this page.   This is a way to shorten the tedious work of poking holes along the entire perimeter of the design.   This title took a bit of time to stitch (6 strands of embroidery floss use), but the texture and look it brings is worth the time… Just put on some music or a movie on, and start stitching away.

 

 

Once all the stitching was completed, I accented all the details with some Shimmer watercolor (Prima Marketing Metallics Palette), and some embellishments from the Illustrated Faith Advent collection.

 

 

I kept the stitching as the second focal point of the page, and chose a b/w picture so that it pops from the layout,  A few paper layers and embellishments complete this page.

 

 

I hope you try this new and updated way to create a stitching guide using the Silhouette Cameo.  Remember I am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.

 

See you all soon!

Free Cut File | 12×12 layout – SWEET CHARM –

Hello there!

Nathalie, with you today,  bringing you a bit of inspiration using the newly released  “X to my O” cut file.   This new file was designed by the Cut Shoppe exclusively for Scrapbook Nerd, and you can find it in the store for free.

I played a bit with the original design, and separated the files, so that i can cut the outer circle out of patterned paper, while choosing to create a stitching guide for the xo pattern.

 

For this page, I reached for MME’s On Trend 2 collection, so the stitching was completed with the colors of the papers in the collection.

 

Once the stitching was done, I cut the circle from one of  the papers in the collection, and used a bit of foam tape to attach it to the stitched mat.

 

The picture of my niece on her 8th birthday was then placed inside the bottom corner of the circle, and then I used various embellies from the collection to create a cluster at the bottom corner of the picture.

A simple title at the opposite corner of the cluster complete the layout.   I just love the texture and dimension on this page, and it all was created based on the new “X to O” cut file.   So stop by the Scrapbook Nerd Store to pick up your free copy of the cut file.   Remember to tag @scrapbooknerdca whenever you share your finished projects using this cut file onto social media.   We love to see how you use the files!!

As always, I am a comment away if you need assistance or have a question on how this came together.

See you soon!
