Another Cameo project from me.. With Valentine's coming up, I had to use the machine to make Valentine's for my son's class.
I found this cute lacing card in the Silhouette Store. It was perfect as I know lacing is an activity done in his class..
|I O-fish-ially Like You!|
This was the project that caused a little trouble - I had some trouble cutting out the heart fins. I think I choose a wrong setting and the machine double cut them and the blade seemed to skip. I stopped the machine and checked the blade which had some tiny pieces of paper caught.
I searched online on how to open the blade casing.. I managed to do open and clean the blade, but had trouble putting the casing back. In doing so, my finger slipped over the over the blade and I got a slight cut.. Kinda like a paper cut.. After that I put it away and let me husband figure it out. I thought I might have broken the blade but luckily not.
My son glued the eye and fin. He also is writing names on a little tag that says "I o-fish-ially like you!" What's a Valentine without a corny phrase!
And I think now I need to put away the cutting machine until my next bag is complete!
