I’ve just arrived home from the November All Things Silhouette Conference for 2019 and so many ideas are hitting me. I am making notes for when I get a chance to start creating again.
I wanted to share a project I created and put in the Silhouette Showcase room at the conference.
This is an acrylic etched with the Silhouette Curio. It is a lighted base that can be found at Craft Chameleon and the acrylic is specifically sized for the base.
This is one of my favorite ones that I have etched for the base.
Thank you to Craft Chameleon for allowing me “test” this one out for them to share with everyone at the ATS – Showcase.
I couldn’t stop there though. I etched 150 of the 15/16″ acrylic discs and gave those out to the attendees of all the Ultimate ATS attendees for the Friday classes in their goody bags.
For these I added a wine charm to the bag but they could also add it to a key chain or other type of hardware too!
I had a few extras and turned mine into a pair of earrings that I wore this weekend too!
And yes, there is a Curio template for these charms too! I was able to etch 10 charms at a time.
And I want to share this with all of you because I think it is so neat.
I was able to use my Business Edition software to connect to 6 different Curio machines to etch 30 snowflake ornaments during the conference.
It’s a long story on why but where else do you get access to a room full of Curios.
Next time, I’ll try even more!
Are you just getting started with the Curio? I recommend starting with the Silhouette metal etching sheets and practicing first.
Here is a step by step tutorial on how I do that – Beginner Curio Etching Metal.
Or if that is not enough, come join us for a full weekend of Curio projects on May 1-3, 2020 at the Curio Retreat in Woodbridge, VA!
Grab your seat quick as we are already over 50% full!
I would love to see your projects feel free to post on my Facebook group at Silhouette Secrets with EllyMae.
