Snowflake Snowman - Exploring the Cameo

Hi everyone, I don't usually post on Sundays but I am trying to post more often, which means finding time to create more often and that is the hardest part, finding time!
Now, today's project is a Silhouette project. Don't hate me but I will be posting some Silhouette projects from time to time. I will not do videos on these projects however. I had the toughest time putting this guy together. For one thing, the Silhouette cuts do not have a base to build the cut on. I did not realize that you have to make your own base! Not to mention, I had two pieces leftover that I can't for the life of me figure out where they go, LOL. He doesn't appear to be missing any limbs or anything so I guess it will remain a mystery.

I used the Echo Park Keepin' Cozy paper pad and the CardzTV stamp set. My cut is from the Silhouette store. I did break down and purchase the subscription when it was on sale. It is a good value and I am getting my free cuts from Kate's Cuttables or at least I check every day to see if the cut is to my liking.

Thanks for visiting today!

Hi Cindy! Your snowman is VERY cute! I was very relieved, however, to hear that you had a tough time with his layers as this has been such a problem for me with my Cameo. I cannot imagine how hard it must be for crafters who are not used to layering with the Cricut! And your advice on tracing a base to build on is excellent! TFS : ) Christine

This is a stunning card, but I hear you... I have a lot of trouble with my Cameo. I rarely use it which makes it even harder to remember how to use it. Faith

This is super cute Cindy. There's a learning curve with the Silhouette but hang in there, once you get it, it can really come in handy for personalizing things! What a fun snowman!!
