August Guest Designer, Janis - Pocket Full of Sunshine

Happy Saturday! It is another fun Saturday with Janis, Our guest designer for the month of August. 
I have a fun project to show you today 
using Timeless Twine Aqua Blue, Lemonade Yellow, and Pumpkin Orange

For the pocket cut and Sketch Pen Stitching, here's what I did:
I placed the pocket cut on my software mat and sized it how I wanted it.
Then I highlighted the outer cut (pocket shape) and selected NO CUT.
I then highlighted the stitching lines and changed it from CUT to SILHOUETTE SKETCH PENS.

Removed the blade from my Cameo and replaced it with the Silver Sketch Pen.
Clicked CUT (which really used the pen to draw the stitching).
Left my mat in the Cameo.

Highlighted the stitching and clicked on NO CUT.
Highlighted the outer pocket shape and clicked on CUT.
Removed my sketch pen and replaced it with my cutting blade.
Clicked CUT.
I think it turned out pretty cool!

  • Silhouette ID# 42906 (sun)
