Monday Made it: Silhouette Print & Cut

It's time for another Monday Made It with Fourth Grade Frolics! Head over to her blog by clicking her button to link up and check out more fantastic "made its"! ( I only have 1 this week...but it's a good one!)

Fourth Grade Frolics

I love my Silhouette Cameo. I use it for so many different things. I think most of its use goes towards my classroom, and today's project was no different. I needed to make minute displays for my clock, and I had a great frame I wanted to use from A Little Peace of Africa. But...I certainly did not want to cut them out. It would've taken forever! This is when I thought of my Silhouette. 

I made a short screen video of how I used Powerpoint to build the graphic I wanted and then by saving the image as a picture, I was able to upload it to my Silhouette, print it out on my printer, and then have the machine cut it for me. It was so easy and they turned out great! You can check out the video below, and then you can follow up with a few finishing pictures below the video.

It was so easy, and the numbers turned out so good. I can't wait to hang them up tomorrow! Since I have to report to work anyways, that shouldn't be a problem. Have a great week!


  1. I think having the silhouette cut things out is awesome. I have to say that I do get tired of cutting things out for the classroom! The numbers look great!!

  3. I think I need to go spend money on a Silhouette RIGHT NOW! If Kelli has one...up there...then I want one too because my goal in life is to be her. Just ask her so! lol Thanks for sharing!

    1. You goof ball!!! I came back to this post to again express my complete and utter love of this new discovery! I've been creating and while my Cameo is cutting, I get to sip my wine and watch the Bachelorette! Seriously Alison, this machine is amazing (especially thanks to Lori for showing a super awesome way to use it because I was pretty dang clueless as to how to use it... still pretty clueless, but this tip will keep me occupied for a whole long time!)

  4. What about laminating? Do you think the Cameo could cut it the card stock if ran it through the laminator first? Im moving rooms and found everything I ddint laminate got destroyed coming off the walls. #laminate the borders too

    1. Yes! You just align it on the cut board by the edge of the paper-not the lamination edge-and set the blade setting 1 point higher.

  5. I have an OLD cricut which I love but I need to get something else for the print and cut feature!
