Study Hall-Silhouette Pic Scan



Hi friends Candace here today sharing a tip on how to use your Silhouette to cut out the exclusive printables that come with your kits.  Have you heard of the Pic Scan mat?  Well it is amazing!  Pic Scan is a mat that allows you to stick any patterned paper or cut aparts that you would like cut out and send them thru the Silhouette to let it do the work!  Say goodbye to fussy cutting!  Here is a quick look at how I used it this month to cut out some embellishments and patterned paper.

DSC_0700First, I laid out the paper and embellishments that I wanted to be cut on my Pic Scan mat.DSC_0703Next, I used my phone to take a picture of the mat.  I imported that picture in to my Silhouette software and used the trace tool to mark the items I wanted cut.DSC_0706Just like that, I sent it through my Silhouette and it was done!  I am just in love with this new tool and how much time it saves me!  Now with all my goodies cut out I made a quick card and my monthly Clique Kit tag.


DSC_0797You can see how the Silhouette cut out the clipboard from the patterned paper and also the little camera.  I then was able to pop the camera up and add another patterned paper behind the lens.  So it not only saved me time but allowed me to be more creative with the same piece of patterned paper!

DSC_0799DSC_0801The Silhouette also cut out the little tags and icons on the cut apart sheet so my monthly tag came together in a snap!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you learned a little something new or got a few new ideas on how to use your fabulous kits.  If you have any questions please let me know!

Have a beautiful day!

  9. Great idea! I actually have a pix scan mat, but I forget to use it. And I don’t think it ever occurred to me to use it on patterned paper.
