First, for the Part 2 Day 1 class, we learnt Silhouette basics. I knew this part already but was good to see that my uses of the Cameo are mostly standard 🙂 We did get an amazing free download from Ali Edwards for some beautiful sentiment cutouts.
Here is my card using one of the sentiments from the download:
Part 2 Day 2 had some fun welding, shaped card and grouping/ungrouping techniques to cut efficiently. Since I have already made plenty of shaped cards with my Cameo and blogged about them too, I decided to try some of the other techniques in the class. I used grouping/ungrouping for the sentiment here.
Here is my card for Day 2:
Part 2 Day 3 was cutting materials other than paper with the Cameo. I still have to work on my project for this day but plan to get to it during this week.
Part 2 Day 4 was print-and-cut. Again another thing to work on this week/weekend!
Part 2 Day 5 (Woohoo I finally caught up! … sort of) was today and it was about jazzing up Silhouette diecuts. I used Puzzle Piecing to make my card. Here it is:
This card above uses the negative pieces of the diecut in the card above it. I have a little tip of my own to share here. I didn’t really want to make the whole panel sticky here but I didn’t want to individually piece together everything either.
So what I did was to put 2-3 drops of liquid glue on each little piece while it was on the Silhouette mat and then put down the panel over it. Positioning the panel was easy because the mat has a grid on it. Here are some pics showing what I did:

Hope you enjoyed my cards! Keep checking in because I’ll have some more to showcase from all the cool techniques we are learning in class.
