A PixScan and Sketch Pen Layout

I have been waiting oh so patiently for the right time to use my new PixScan mat, and today was the day! Guiseppa here and I used the my Silhouette Sketch Pens to create this title and frame.  Then I took a picture of these shapes on the PixScan mat with my iPhone and used the PixScan technology in the Silhouette studio software to cut them out.  It worked out perfectly.

My head is now swimming with ideas of how I can use the PixScan technology.  If you haven’t seen what you can do with this mat…here is a VIDEO on YOU TUBE that will for sure get the wheels turning in your head.  Also, here is a LINK to the SILHOUETTE BLOG on how to use your PixScan mat! Here are a couple more closeups of my layout.

I used the Washi Sheets to create fun little confetti stars, circles and squares…just for an added touch.  Oh, and that Fox shape…isn’t it so cute?!

So, if you haven’t had a chance to try out the new PixScan mat…do!  I know that I will be using more often.  Thanks for stopping in and happy cutting!

Hi I am Guiseppa, not only do I have a love for paper crafting. I have been doing it for over 14 years. I also have a love for Zumba and recently became an instructor. I love dance. My mother put me into dance when I was 3 years old and I danced up until I married my husband, So, it only seemed fitting that I used my dance training to do Zumba! I get to dance and stay in shape doing it. I have been married to my number one supporter Sam for nearly 16 years now and we have 3 children; Braden age 16, Janica 14, and our little Angel Sterling passed away eight years ago from “The Bubble Boy Disease.” Never has scrapbooking meant so much to me as when he passed away. I have all of those wonderful memories of him preserved through scrapbooking. When I am not scrapbooking, I enjoy spending time with my family. You can often find us in the mountains camping, hiking, fishing and exploring on our 4 wheeler. I also enjoy reading and traveling. I hope to inspire you with my projects and help to make crafting and scrapbooking an important part of your life. I know it has changed mine.

  1. Love your sketched title and frame Guiseppa…and the fox is adorable!

  2. I love the layout. So cute and fun.

    I’m a bit confused on how the PixScan helped with this design though. Wouldn’t it have been just as easy to cut it out on the normal mat within the Silhouette Studio?

    1. This is just another way to cut out images etc. I was simply testing it out and this it what it turned into…this layout. There are so many different ways to use Pixscan…this is just how I chose to use it.

  3. Thank you for sharing your layout. I love the layout, love the idea of using pixscan and what a great picture of your handsome son and yourself!

  4. All I can say is WOW!!! Silhouette never stops amazing me with their ideas — I now wondering if I can keep up with all of these great ideas.After all this time I still pause and stare in disbelief after I cut out a shape using my Silhouette machine. Guiseppa, really nice layout – especially with the sketch pens.
