Next week I am heading down to Arizona to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I am thinking of starting a new tradition with a thankful tree activity. I’ll have each family member write a couple of things they are thankful for on paper leaves to add to this little tree. My niece and nephews are even getting old enough now to where they could write their own. It will be fun to see what they come up with! Then, once I get home from my trip, I’ll glue on all of the leaves and add the page to my scrapbook.
Of course the idea for this project isn’t something new, but the CAMEO sure made it a lot easier to create. The duplication of the leaves especially. For this type of project when there are a lot of duplicate parts I rely on the replicate feature in Silhouette studio. In just a couple of steps you can save quite a bit of time. After opening and resizing my leaf I opened the replicate window. Then, with the leaf selected I clicked on “fill page” and it was all set to cut. Easy peasy right?
What Thanksgiving projects are you making with the Silhouette?
