ScrapFIT woorkout #21 Use your Machines

Okay so I created another layout for ScrapFIT. I just had to share this layout. The reason? Well, I wanted to share one of the most fabulous features of the Silhouette Die Cutting Machine. If you will look at the sign on the right hand side of my layout...I was able to print the journaling straight from my Silhouette on to the sign! Is that not the coolest thing ever?

Originally I hand wrote my journaling and messed up. Don't ya just hate that? So I went back to my Silhouette and did the journaling in the software program, printed it with my printer, (yes the Silhouette has a print feature built in) then I put the same paper in my machine and it cut around the edges. The Silhouette prints out registration marks so that the machine will read those marks and knows where to cut. 

It fit perfectly in my sign and covered up my horrible mistake. This is just another one of those great features that Silhouette Machine offers.

Close up of my handmade flowers. The clip board and film reel are also die cuts from the Silhouette. The photos here aren't all that great. Some kind lady at the theater took them for me. It was so dark the photos didn't turn out that well and I had to touch them up in PSE 6 the beat I could.

Here is a close up of the journaling block a created with my Silhouette Machine. I downloaded the Shrek font from the internet, added lines to the inside and cut it out with the machine. It fit inside perfectly. In this case I preferred computer journaling over my handwriting because I was able to squeeze in more words.
