Hi there, Gia here bringing you my first Geek Lab post in quite a while. As a very simple scrapper, I don't usually try anything that involves more than scissors, paper, adhesive...but I am an old dog willing to learn a few new tricks! How about you? I have a disclaimer right off the bat- I do own a Silhouette Cameo, but it is not the latest one, and my software version is possibly quite out of date. I honestly was still using the very first cartridge only Cricut machine until I broke down and got this Cameo. I am having some issues with it due to the humidity and salty air in Maui and my blades get rusty and dull and the mechanisms of the machine also seem to be making noises they shouldn't be making. I have had to figure out how to work around these issues and keep my cuts on the fairly simple side. That doesn't mean they can't be effective in a layout! So if this tutorial is simple for you, I apologize in advance and understand if you scroll down just to take a peek at the final result!
I was very excited to get to design a unicorn cut file for the October kit. If you ask any of my friends they will tell you I definitely loved unicorns before it was cool. LOL. So of course it was the first thing I wanted to use when I received my October Clique Kit. Even though the cut file is just one unicorn, I used this simple process to create a background of many unicorns that I wanted to back with the different fun patterns in the Shimelle Glitter Girl collection. We do provide several different options of file types for each cut file design, and if you have the newest machine and/or software you might select the Silhouette Studio file. For this purpose I am using a PNG file.
And here are some close-ups.
I had these Snap Chat selfies and the kit this month was perfect for them. The unicorn washi tape was one of many awesome add ons this month. I hope you liked this layout and see you again soon!
