Hello My crafty Friends. I am back with my Monthly project. Today I want to share with you a "picture Tutorial" on doing a "Print and Cut" with my Silhouette Cameo..
Here is my Cameo is she not a beauty
Soo Now this is an important step. You go to the right side of your menu tool bar and click on "Registration Mark Icon.. That is the one with the 3 black mark on there.. Once you open that Window you want to click on Show Reg. Marks.
Now just sent it to your printer. as you would any documents.
This is what it looks like after it has been printed.. You can see that I have my Registration mark on my paper and my little girl is between those marking. Now she is ready to be placed in my Silhouette and will be ready to cut.
I placed my paper on my cutting mat and placed it in my machine.
Now before I do anything else. I go back to my laptop and got to 'file'. scroll down to "Send to Silhouette"
Now it's going to ask you if you want to print your image. We already did that soo just click on "Skip Printing"
Next screen will ask about "detecting your registration marks." You want to click on "Detect Automatically"
Here is my machine in progress as it is detection my mark.. You will hear it making the noise and you will see your paper moving back and forth.. This is OK.. it is suppose to do that. (the first time I heard it I shut off my machine because I thought I had did something wrong!! :)
Then the last thing to do is to "click on Cut page"
Here She is standing next to my Cameo..
My Daughter's Birthday was in October.. It was then that I decided to open my Cameo after having it just sitting in my living room for about 5 months prior.. Once I opened it; I NEVER looked back I made all the decorations for her sleep over with my Silhouette and the Dollar Tree' I made the banner and her name too.
Here is the fist one I ever made.. you can tell she has on black slipper and her bunny is a different color too.
Here is a picture of their "Treat Bags" that they got at the end of the sleep over.
WHOOO I know that this was a LONG post.. I really wanted to try and do a video. But as for a video camera the only thing I have is my "Flip camcorder" which is NOT the problem. the real problem is that my crafting space is soo small I don't really have any room to set up anything for recording..
I hope you enjoyed my Print and Cut Tutorial and of course if you have any questions or comments Please let me know. And if you think I skipped a step or you are not sure about something please leave me a comment and I will do my best to answer..
