I just made my own die cuts from digi images I purchased from CC Designs and the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo.
I really love to color with my Copics, but I hate to fussy cut my images. I have problems with my hands going numb when I try to do small tasks. So the other day I decided to try and see if I could create die cuts using my Silhouette Cameo.
It took me a while to do the first one because I'm such a novice with this software, but after that, I was able to fly through them. Some of the images have interior areas that need to be cut out. I couldn't find a way to do this automatically with the software. Luckily, I'm familiar with Adobe Illustrator and Cameo software works in much the same way. So, I was able to "draw" in the interior cut lines.
I was even able to cut the images with and without a border. Although without a border won't work on all images. An example would be the girl on the swing wouldn't work well without a border because of the butterflies and vine. However, the image below works perfectly.
This was my first try cutting these images. They need a few tweaks, but overall, I think it was a success. It takes a little bit of time to create the cut files (I sat with my laptop in my lap while I watched a movie and created a whole set.), but once you do, you can save them to your library and you always have them to cut at any size you may need. Now I will never have to fussy cut these images again. Gotta love that.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting,
