My First Challenge

.....that I initiated! Yep, My First Vinyl project has blossomed into 
My First Challenge. 

How you ask? 

Well, Over on Instagram I had posted about decorating my Silhouette Cameo with vinyl. My friend Tammy Malone, from over at Not Just Paper and Glue, commented on my post and mentioned that there was a cutting file for the control panel in the Silhouette Store. I knew about it, and also had the free one that came with the free downloads when I bought my Cameo. I have just vinyled (is that a word?) my Cameo and couldn't decide what paper to use for the control panel. And she hadn't done hers either. So I said "you do yours and I'll do mine". 

So, there you have it....my first challenge.... 

Control Panel Challenge
#controlpanelchallenge

Pretty up your Cameo people!!


It's easy to get started! Just find the cutting file (#42907) in the Silhouette Store, or use the free download. The difference is that #42907, from Samantha Walker, 
is scalloped around the edges. The free one is not. 

Before.......



Find the little notch in the plastic cover and take it off. Insert your paper or whatever material you used, and replace cover. There are notches on the the top and bottom of plastic cover.

After......


So easy! No welding, no ungrouping, nothing. Just choose the file, put paper on the mat, load mat, CUT! 


Viola!! A prettied up Control Panel! 

Hope to see you and your control panels over on Instagram!
