Silhouette Cut Embellishments & Borders

I love the picture on this page!  This page really made use of my Silhouette.  Not only was the title cut with it, but the border down the edge of the page was also cut with it.  The Silhouette is great for creating embellishments.  You can create your own designs, purchase designs from the Silhouette website or other digital cutting design sites, or you can cut designs from the wide array of free designs available on the internet.  The place I get most of mine from are the UKScrappers website (go to the forum and look under Craft Robo/Silhouette), and Monica's site.  There are MANY others sites that have them too, but this is where I get most of mine.

Here are some more examples of scrapbook pages using embellishments cut on my Silhouette:

On both of these pages, the titles are cut on the Silhouette.  On the top page, the Silhoutte also cut the border.  On the bottom page, the little flowers were also cut on the Silhouette.  I matted them and hand-cut the mats, but I could easily have cut the mats on the Silhouette, too.  I LOVE that I can use this machine to create what I want - usually for free - instead of having to buy a new cartridge anytime I want something new!
