Let's Go to the Art Fair!

***If you are looking for the American Crafts Blog Hop, please go HERE.***

The Paper Bakery is going to the Art Fair this month, with a mix of Glitz Design, My Mind's Eye and Bella Blvd.  All of the Kits this month are amazing and the Scrapbook Kit includes some great embellishments like, feathers, crocheted hearts, Jillibean word stickers, flair buttons, and more!  I mixed some of the Glitz Design and My Mind's Eye for today's layout and also included some embellishments and stamps that are available in The Paper Bakery Shop.


I also used one of our Exclusive Cut Files in my title.  I have a tutorial sharing how I used my Silhouette Sketch Pens with the "Free" Feather Cut File.

1.  First, you will need to open your Cut File in Silhouette Studio.

2.  You will need to remove your blade from the housing and replace it with your choice of Sketch Pen.  Go to File and Send to Cameo.  Before you hit cut, go under Silhouette Cut Settings (the window on the right hand side of studio) and scroll down and select Silhouette Sketch Pen.  Then you can hit cut.

3.  Once your image has finished drawing, remove the Sketch Pen and replace with the blade.  Do not unload your mat or move your image, because you will want it to stay in the same place for your cut to work.  Now, you will want to select your Offset tool.  It is located at the bottom of Studio, near the left hand side.  Once you hit the Offset tool, go over to the Offset window and adjust your Offset distance.  And you have the choices of Corner or Round, and I usually select Corner.

4.  Once you have your Offset distance to your liking, delete the shape inside of your Offset line and any other text you don't want to cut.  You will need to go back to your Silhouette Cut Settings window and change the cutting preference to Textured Cardstock or Patterned Paper, depending on which one you are using.

And here's a look at the Exclusive Cut Files for this month.  Our Cut Files and Printables rotate each month, so you will receive the one for each specific month with your Paper Bakery subscription!
