scherenschnitte. paper cutting. old. german. hand-cut. very, very, very cool. this of course is not hand-cut. thank you silhouette cameo!
the first time i saw this file was when erica shared it after she found it on cindy’s site. cindy’s site is amazing. her freebies are amazing. i want to do this one next. it’s been in my mind for a while to make this one but i don’t have the patience to do this by hand. i like to cut paper, but not like this. plus, this is the exact reason why i purchased a cameo. a little design manipulation of any freebie file (i used pS & illustrator) and you can pretty much cut anything that someone else decides to share. (just use it for yourself though.)
best part? i had two after cutting, a positive & the negative which meant that i was able to hang one in the bean’s room and one in tLm’s. love that.
i’ve been playing around with my cameo some more, altering some vintage Halloween files i’ve had forever. just putzing in photoshop & illustrator, cutting and seeing what happens. over the weekend i decided to turn one of my no.31 stackable brushes into a cut file, just to see how it would look. i subtracted a few items, played around with the merge & grouping functions and turned the two brush files into the haunted house you see above. there’s actually more pieces in the design, but after cutting these are the ones that i decided to keep, you might choose to add more.
if you’d like the file to use this halloween (or next) just click here. and, if you use it let me know, i’d love to see what you make.
now i’m off to get started on the bean’s owl costume. it’s going to be quite a process of sitting & cutting fabric into little feathers. wish me luck!
it’s the 10th, which means the JBS gallery update for october is coming. If you have a die cut machine and want to use the schoolboy silhouette that i created for my “sketchy” (see below) layout click here for the free file. enjoy!
