It's the 8th of the month so that means it is my time to join in. It always begins on the 1st of every month and is time
for another Challenge over at
A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.
Ch# 3 Faux Stitching
Begins: Monday, July 1
Ends: Wednesday, July 31
Wow what a gorgeous day it has been again here in the UK and it is apparently going to get even hotter so make the most of it as it is sure not to last!
Ok so for this month's challenge I actually made two things again, I have made two different boxes. I made the first one but didn't think you could see the stitching very well so made another!
For this one I used the 3d Semi Circle Box by Samantha Walker (number below in supplies list), some Basic Grey Christmas papers called 'Nordic Holiday' and because they said Christmas papers I made a Christmas tag but now the box is made I think this could be used for several occasions as the paper isn't really Christmassy is it. I did the stitching by adding an internal offset and then changing the line stroke to the smallest stitch, changed out my blade and inserted the sketch pen and drew them in after cutting but before unloading my cutting mat. I love the sketch facility on the cameo but you can also get great results using print and cut. As long as you use the Silhouette Cameo in some way you can enter the prize draw.
This is the box closed up.

This is my second box which I absolutely love and will now have to make another of for my other dog at Christmas time. This was made using the 3d Woof Box file by Jamie Cripps. I added the faux stitching again with the sketch pen, on the bone and the name I did an internal offset and changed it to the smallest stitch. Unfortunately I could not get the pen to show up on the wording very well, they are glitter pens so it is not very easy.
