YAHOO!!!  It's my first official Design Team post for Silhouette Challenges and I couldn't be more excited!

June's challenge theme is "print and cut".  Now, I'm basically a rookie when it comes to this machine.  


I got it for Mother's Day 2012 and I haven't even STARTED to touch the features that this little guy can do!  Needless to say, I'm STOKED about the challenges that we'll have the next  several months.  I can't wait to learn how to REALLY use this machine.

For my first project, I had a few things floating around in my head that I wanted to do, but I didn't really {feel} anything.  

My nieces had a Dance Recital at the end of May and I try to make them something fun for each performance they have so I figured now would be a GREAT time to play with the Print/Cut feature!

I Googled a cute little quote for "dance" and "tumbling", found a tag  to use in my library in the Silhouette Studio, added it in, printed it and cut it!

The treat bags I used are the ribbon tie scalloped flap box.  
Embellish with some washi tape, and thickers for their names.

Inside the bags are some fun treats:

Tie closed with twine and ta-da!  You've got a fun treat box that everyone will LOVE!!


All you have to do is link up your project here, and follow the directions!
Let's see what you got! Get those projects linked up! :)

Silhouette Challenge - June 2013 - Print and Cut!

June is HERE and so is an incredible challenge from Silhouette Challenges.  

This is my first "official" month on their Design Team and I'm SUPER excited!  

Here's the details:

June Ch# 2 Print & Cut
Begins: Saturday, June 1
Ends: Sunday, June 30
Sponsor: My Scrap Chick 
Prize: GC
Prize: Digi Paper Pack Winners Choice
Sponsor: KaDoodle Bug Designs
Prize: $15 GC

All you have to do is link up your project here, and follow the directions!

Here is my VERY FIRST print/cut attempt {EVER}.  

Once you try it, you'll find all of these ideas come swarming to your head about how you want to use this. I've started Project Life this past week and will use this SOOOOOOO much on those little 3x4 and 4x6 cards! Think of the $$$ you'll save in stickers!

Ok, probably not really because if you're like me, you'll still buy them. :)

Now, what are you waiting for? Let's see what you got!!
