Ever since I discovered in the Silhouette online store that they have Olivia licensed images, I’ve been dying to find a project that they are right for. My daughter loves Olivia – we must own every single Olivia book, stuffed toy, and video every produced!
The new Silhouette promo for the company’s specialty media gave me a great idea of what to do with the images – temporary tattoos! The house is decorated in top to bottom Olivia (or at least it feels like it at times), so why not the kid too?
Creating a tattoo with the Silhouette temporary tattoo paper is as simple as selecting a print and cut image (or making your own), flipping it to create a mirror image, and then printing it on the tattoo paper. When you are done printing, you adhere the adhesive sheet over the top of the tattoo print. Then you run it through your Silhouette machine.
After I did all that and peeled away the excess tattoo paper, I was left with these tattoos on my mat:
One of the biggest responses I got from readers of CHA Summer coverage was when I wrote about the new products in the Silhouette booth – and specifically the Silhouette stamping kit. The kit lets users of Silhouette machine cut their own custom acrylic stamps using their machines, and generated a lot of excitement.
I myself was very excited to try it so was delighted to get one from Silhouette to try for this promotion. The stamping kit comes with stamping material, 3 stamp blocks, a cutting mat, and an ink pad. There’s also a card that allows the user to claim special stamp images for their Silhouette library, and a how to dvd.
What I found was actually surprising. I had somehow thought that the stamp kit was going to be hard to use with some special steps that had to be done. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was quick and easy, like cutting any other medium on the Silhouette.
The only real difference to cutting the stamp medium is that you have to use this special mat in the machine with it. Here it is, all loaded and ready to cut with a half sheet of stamp material:
Silhouette is offering another one of their great promotions if you use this link and enter our code “Update” at checkout in their online store. This time around, in addition to the Cameo and Portrait machines, you can get great deals on their Sketch Pens.
My Portrait machine is still a new enough addition to my scrapbook room that I hadn’t had a chance to try the pens yet until I got a chance to try them through this promotion. I’d been eyeing some sketch art in the Silhouette online store that I wanted to try though!
Silhouette is offering another great promotion through their online store if you use this link and enter our code “Update” at checkout! These are great deals from Silhouette that can’t be beat anywhere else! This month, in addition to great deals on the machines, they are also offering deals on the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software to help you get the most out of your machine’s design capabilities.
So why would you want a Silhouette machine? I’ll show you my latest creation with mine to show you why I can’t live without it when I’m creating lately!
I’m doing a lot of Project Life lately, and the Silhouette Portrait machine (being offered for an amazing $129.99 through this promotion) is the perfect size for doing those projects. I just completed this double layout of my day with my daughter at Animal Kingdom using the Project Life Midnight Core Kit.
