Hi all! Sorry for the late posting. But hey! It’s still Monday where I live. :)

I’ve been eagerly waiting for the new Silhouette Studio software to come out because they announced at CHA-Summer that the software would FINALLY be for Macs, too! YAY! HALLELUJAH! I’ve been wanting this since I bought my Silhouette cutting machine nearly three years ago!

Anyhow, the software was just released last week and I downloaded it this morning. Immediately, I wanted to cut something to be used for today’s card and video. My first purchase from the Silhouette store was the You Are Seriously Awesome Card by Loni Stevens. SO cute!

I adjusted the design a bit so that there was more room at the bottom of the card to accommodate some ribbon. I show you how to do that in the video. After the design was cut out, I added some patterned paper from Crate Paper’s School Spirit 6×6 paper pad, some Papertrey Ink ribbon, and (of course) some white gel pen. :)

BTW, I mention in the video–and it’s absolutely true–that American Crafts card stock is the best with the Silhouette. It was recommended by fellow Garden Girl Nichol Magouirk and I most definitely concur. It cuts like butter!

Anyhow, enjoy!

NOTE: You can see the on computer stuff better if you watch the video in HD.
