The kind people at Silhouette sent me a Portrait machine to play around with and I'm in love! I already have a Cricut, but I feel so stifled by their design cartridges. I've made some cute things, but I'd rather be able to cut the clipart and fonts I already own on my computer.
When I read about Denise's Student of the Month hanger, I knew I needed to make one for my room! My Star Student fills out an All About Me poster each month that I hang up. But it keeps blowing off the wall from the fans in our room. This hanger was brilliant and a perfect first project for my Portrait!
First, I got the Portrait machine all set up and downloaded my free images it comes with. I even watched the instructional DVD! #nerdalert
Then I started playing around with the software. I LOVE that I can see how it will cut on the page and that I can use my own fonts.
What would you make?
