Silhouette Studio Tutorial: Learn How to Create a Honeycomb Stencil

We have had the Silhouette Cameo for a while now and have been getting the hang of using it. It’s very similar to the Brother Scan n Cut in terms of what it can do but there are enough differences to make it a whole new learning experience. Some things are better and some are worse but that is a whole different video which we will be doing in the near future. I know a lot of people are tossing up whether to buy a Brother Scan n Cut or a Silhouette Cameo so hopefully we will be able to help them come to a decision.

In the meantime, we felt it was time to start creating some tutorials for the Silhouette Cameo and this one is about creating a honeycomb stencil shape. We did a similar video for the Brother Scan n Cut which you can view here.

This is a neat stencil shape which you can use for art journaling, scrapbooking or card making. You can cut the stencil on card stock or scrapbooking paper and actually use the shape itself stuck down on the paper. Or you can create a stencil using stencil plastic and use it as we did in the image below by spraying with ink sprays to create beautiful effects.

Silhouette Cameo V2 Unboxing

Today we decided to get a new toy for the craft studio…the Silhouette Cameo V2.  We’ve been wanting one for a while now and found a store (Craft Giraffe) that price matched the cheapest price we could find for the Silhouette here in Australia. I have to say that the staff there are just lovely…extremely helpful and willing to chat.

As many of you know, we have the Brother Scan n Cut and have created numerous videos on how to use it, but we have never tried the Silhouette Cameo. It is a very similar machine in many ways but we knew that there were enough differences for us to check it out thoroughly.

We are really excited and looking forward to creating lots of tutorials for it much like we do for the Brother Scan n Cut.

This first video is just a simple unboxing so you can see what’s included. We have already read the quick start guide and plan to heavily research and test out the machine over the next few days so stay tuned.
