You all know I love my Silhouette Cameo, right?! I mean I don’t hide it. I think I use it every week (if not more) and I am always learning something new! Seriously, I can’t get over everything you can do with it.

Anyway, right now Silhouette is having a huge sale on machines, Designer Studio Software and sketch pens (see below) so I decided to play around with the pens and give you an example of something you can make with them! Did you know you can use the white Silhouette Sketch Pens on black paper to create a chalkboard print? SO AMAZING! You’ll need the designer studio software to do this.

This project took me like 10-15 minutes and now I have a cute little print for my new vignette (that changes weekly).

I started with this “great love” graphic found in the online store and sized it to fit an 8 X 10 frame. I put a 9 X 11 box around the graphic to make it easy to cut and put in the frame. Then, you’ll want to make sure you click the sketch pen icon on the top row and then click ‘plain’.

Replace your blade with the sketch pen and then load the cutting matt into the machine.

When you hit cut, just make sure to change the settings so the media is set to Silhouette Sketch Pens.

Then cut and you’ll see the pen do all the work.
