FYI Silhouette Users

For those of you who have a Silhouette machine and are still using the Craft ROBO, there is something better. As awesome as this software is, there is better (like I said before). Somehow, I was out of the loop and did not know that Silhouette had put out their own version of software. I was very confused when I looked at other peoples tutorials and their software looked completely different! Duh! They upgraded! Somehow I stumbled across it last week and I thought I would share it with whomever is interested. Here is where you go to download the new software. And if I haven't mentioned it yet, it is so much better! All those things that you wished you could do in Craft ROBO (like erasing, cutting, viewing the image dimensions, etc.) you can do now! And, the even better part is it's FREE! And all your purchased images are transferable! It's a win-win! I haven't played with the new software a whole lot, but I am going to go back through those tutes that I passed over because I didn't have the same software. I hope this makes at least one person's life a little easier!

And on to a few more projects. This I have shared before, but I added a little more to it. It was to simple for me like it was, so I added a few fabric rosettes. I think it finishes it off quite well.


This picture is hanging in our kitchen. We have a phone outlet in our kitchen that doesn't screw into the wall very well. It sometimes just hangs there and it is kind of an eye sore so this painting is covering that up. It is another frame I had and just painted black. I picked out some scrapbook paper that I liked and put it in the frame. The saying and the flourish I did myself on the Silhouette. I cut it out on some vinyl and applied it to the outside of the frame. Because I change my mind quite often, I put the vinyl on the glass. That way I can change the paper out whenever I want!

Looking back, I should have made the words a little bigger, but over all, I love how it turned out.
I see this picture everday, multiple times a day. This phrase is a constant reminder to find joy in whatever season I am in. No matter what trials, uncertainties, or problems I am having, it is a reminder to rejoice and find joy because our lives are a journey to a much better place. We are just passing through this life. Where we end up is undescribable. I am also reminded of Romans 8:18, "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is be revealed to us." (Thanks Krissy for sharing that verse with me) I have so much to be thankful for and even though I will encounter trials, I will learn to rejoice through them!
