Silhouette 'Print And Cut' Challenge

It's the time for another challenge over at

Ch# 15 Print N Cut
Begins: Tuesday, July 1
Ends: Thursday, July 31

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.

Sponsor this month is:

Silhouette Printable Cotton Canvas

Print and cut is one of the many features I love about the silhouette, it doesn't mean you can only cut what is in the silhouette store it can be used in several ways and here are a few example's of what it can do:-
* cut out digital stamps
* cut out images scanned into your computer so maybe wooden stamps
* take an image and fill it with patterns or colours then decide on how you want it cut out
* make stickers
* print onto heat transfer material for t-shirts
* make calendars, chore charts etc etc.
You see those are just a few of the many, many ways it can be used.

So for my project I decided to make a couple of Christmas cards along with matching gift bags for people who love their pets or they could even be given to the pets lol. You see these were so quick and easy to make I decided to make two at a time.

Here are the cards I made one with a cat and one with a dog. I took images from the silhouette store and then offset the edge by 0.50 to cut a mat layer for each item.

I placed the same image tag on the bags.

With the corresponding image on the back.

This is the reverse of the tag all done using the print and cut method.
It took me about 20 minutes to make both of these sets.
