Holiday Card Workshop - Day one

Hello my friends,

I know, I've been a terrible blogger (AGAIN) but for now I'm back :-) !

When I don't blog, it's usually because I'm scrapbooking and I don't always want to share on my blog those pages for personal reasons.  Of course if you come to my scrapbooking crops, here in Abingdon, then you are welcome to look at my pages, you all know that!

It has taken this fab class to get me back, but at least you can be sure that I will try and be an excellent pupil and post what I make on my blog.

So today we were learning all about colouring in and about making a few cards at once.  We were shown a technique that I actually couldn't do, as I hadn't got clear stamps to do it with, but I found another quick way/short cut to making a few cards at once using my Silhouette Cameo, with the pen holder!

This is where I started..........

I made a Studio file using one box (the size to fit onto my A6 card front) and added the greeting.  I used the pen holder to hold my Stabilo pen and ran it through my Cameo with only the words highlighted to cut (well draw really!).  I then highlighted the boxes and ran it through again (this time with the blade) giving me the cuts for the individual card fronts.

I then placed three at a time on a mat in front of me, masked each worded area with some masking tape and then stamped happily away with a few different blues to co-ordinate with my sentiment.  I then inked the edges of the masked area and here is the result.....

Just to prove I made a few at a time - here is a photo of a few of them....

Enjoy, if you are joining in with this fab class - I hope you enjoy it as much as I plan to!

Happy crafting.



  1. Wow, Carole,
    You really took the assignment and ran with it! Love how you "mass-produced" the greeting with your Cameo (what a great machine!). Lovely cards!

  2. Your cards are so pretty, love all the snowflakes! You really know how to use that Silhouette!

  3. You did a wonderful job! I love your cards
