So it's been less than a month since I received my Silhouette Cameo. But let me tell you it's love at first cut! I just uploaded a quick and easy tutorial.
I am helping a friend finish her wedding album from over 30 years ago and wanted to use as many Anna Griffin pretties as I could. Well that's where the fun started.
I have dozens and dozens and more of Anna Griffin sentiment stickers left over from card kits I have bought. But... they have sentiments like...with deepest sympathy, congrats on your new baby, get well soon...not exactly perfect for a wedding album. So the challenge was: could I use my Silhouette Cameo, with our without Photoshop Elements 14 to recreate them into something just perfect for Pam's beautiful album?
And the answer is absolutely Yes!
So if I could do this, could I make titles with Cameo that had that same timeless elegance that Anna Griffin is so loved and known for? Again the answer is Yes! I just used the Cameo Design screen, typed in some frames using specialty dingbat fonts, typed in the sentiment, made offset layers and voila ... coordinating titles. And of course I couldn't stop there. I had so much fun making sentiment stickers for greeting cards to cover up even more of the sentiments I wouldn't be using.
Here's the video of how I did this so easily with the Cameo. Below that is a list of fonts you might want to use if you are going to give this easy method a try.
Here's the updated video......
