Well hello, again!!
I know, can you believe that first Cameo Spotlight Challenge is FINALLY here!! It seems like it’s taken forever since the DT was announced!! But today is the day that we get to share samples in the hopes that you all will be inspired to get your Silhouette or Cameo out and play with us!
So our first challenge is to create a card design that represents a summer time theme. So when you think of summer, what do you think of? Whatever it is, that’s what you should use as your inspiration for this week’s challenge! My inspiration came from all those photos you see on Facebook of people who are on vacation and post a picture of their feet with some amazing tropical scene off in the distance. And I’m really loving the Polaroid frame look these days, aren’t you?! I saw that a stamp company recently came out with a photo frame die and the set was priced at $24 – what?!! Believe me when I tell you I was thrilled to little bits to find a very similar frame in the Silhouette Studio Store for $.99!! Woohoo again, right?! But honestly, it wouldn’t take much to design your own instamatic frame in the Studio software – it’s just a rectangle with a square inside. Easy peasy!!
