I'm sharing a fun project for The Cutting Cafe that features the Photo Background Printable Stamp. In addition I used the Camera Photo Shaped Holder Template...Cutting File which coordinates with the printable stamp.
I created this mini for my furry grand babies, Rosie and Felix, and for the new addition we're expecting. My hubby has finally relented and we are getting a beautiful little girl next month. Her name is Sophie and she's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel just like my furry granddaughter, Rosie. I can't wait! So actually this mini is more like a brag book. :)
A few close ups of the cover of my mini.
I trimmed a 12x12 dp from Graphic 45's Communique collection to 8.5x11 and printed the Photo Background printable stamp on it. Then I imported the Camera Photo Shaped Holder cutting file into my Silhouette Cameo library by
1. Open Silhouette
2. Click on File > Import > Import to Library
at this point a window opens for you to select the file - it's important that you've extracted the file before you do this and second that you select SVG (*svg) as the file type, not the automatic Silhouette file. You have to make this change before you can see all of the files in the folder.
3. Select the SVG (*svg) as file type
4. Choose your cutting file
5. Click OPEN and import
My Cutting Cafe files go directly to the My Own Designs folder in the Silhouette Library. To keep my non Silhouette files straight I create a separate folder so I can click on the file image and drag it to the correct folder. It helps me stay organized and I hope this info will help some of you just starting out with your Silhouette Cameo.
To create this mini I went rummaging in my alterables stash and found a 7 Gypsies Book Cover I purchased on clearance, ages ago. I decorated the front but left the back cover alone. The other pages are chipboard which I cut to size and each one is covered with Graphic 45's - Raining Cats and Dogs collection. The alpha's, flowers and cardstock stickers are also from the same collection.
I'll share the inside pages after we get our little girl next month.
I won't forget, I promise.
Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe's blog on the 7th to see all of the inspiration by the design team. If you leave a comment for the DT then you'll be in the running to win 3 FREE sets from Regina. Good Luck!
Have a great week everyone!
