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!
