I've been getting busy this week completing deadlines and doing lots of painting. My poor cameo has been working overtime since I received it and got it all set up! It has been a little of a struggle getting the settings correct and trying to pick just the right paper. I use a pretty thin white paper from michaels to do most of my layouts on and that just will not cut in the cameo. I've tried bazzill and watercolor paper and I've just ordered some of the american crafts white cardstock so I hope that one gives me better results more often. Once I get things working pretty good I hope to have a giveaway here and there because I know some of you don't own a silhouette and I think everyone should get to play with these fun detailed cuts!
I'm so so excited to share this page with you guys because I think it's one of my absolute favorites! I love making a big impact with a single idea on a page and what is there better to use than butterflies! I've cut these pretties out from Wilna more than a few times and I never get tired of discovering new ways to use them. This time it was watercolors, inks and black gouache paint spatters! I'm always happiest with the simpler pages or the ones where a single idea is repeated. Repetition has always been the easist way to a great design for me!
As the summer begins to wind down you truly realize how fast time flies. The days go by at such an unnoticed pace and it always seems like you have forever in the beginning. We try to hold onto tiny little moments that hold the most significance. For me it's my sons smile. When he's not trying he has the cutest most peaceful smile! I love it! I hope he always finds things to smile about!
I wish you all smiles today and everyday!
