CKC October Forgery

...on the fourth...ish. 😕

At least it isn't the fourteenth like last time, right? 😜

Part of the issue is that I'm not currently getting along with my Silhouette right now.

I managed to cut these (and some extra leaves) before it started misbehaving again.

If you watch the video of the kit unboxing, there is a cut file included which looks like a wedding ring quilt.



I have a similar cut file and also this one designed for stitching, so I thought I'd continue with the quilting/sewing/stitching vibe and cut a similar pattern by Paige Evans and stitch it instead.  I have to pop out a few more of those stubborn dots, though.

The other cut file is also by Paige Evans and it's an example of how Autumn and Spring are colliding - leaves in more Springy colours.  Not that you can't use leaves for Spring, but they are synonymous with Autumn so we're going with that.



I will definitely pull out some coffee themed stamps.  I have a lot...and I mean a LOT.

I might even tinker more with various pens in the Silhouette pen holder to see if I can get a good pen and paper combination which gives a crisp finish and no bleeding.



Not much to forge and to be honest even this is probably pushing it!

Now to make some layouts and try not to drop the ball on adulting and everything else!!


Love, and fabulous forging!

    1. Thanks Becca! I have to say I'm looking forward to just chilling out and stitching. It's such a beautiful day outside too! What I haven't decided is which photos to use with either cut file. That will probably take the most time!

    1. I'm going to incorporate stitching in both of them. The fibre/textile theme is something that the cut file in the unboxing video has put into my head!

    1. Oh do! You wont regret it! wanted one for years but the only operating system we were running wasn't compatible, so as soon as I got a Macbook I bought one. Worked out well since they released the Cameo 3 by then and had so many more featers than Cameo 2.
