Now for the I love you because dry erase frame tutorial! ;) 

You’ll need: a frame, white card stock, Silhouette Cameo or Portrait, Silhouette Sketch Pen, vinyl lettering

I love you bee-cause

This is my first time using the Silhouette Sketch Pens, and I loved them! The Sketch Pen Starter kit comes with 24 pens in all these fun colors plus a download card with 10 sketch images. 

Silhouette Sketch Pens

The Silhouette Sketch Pens basically look like a short ball point pen! Aren’t they cute? ;)

Using them is so easy, too.  First you unlock & remove your Silhouette blade & set it aside.

Then you replace it with a Silhouette Sketch pen.  It just slides right in, & then you turn the knob to the right & lock it in place.

Then you’re are all ready to sketch a design.  I used this fun Chevron design that was included in in the starter kit download.

I tried several different colors…just because it was so fun to watch!  I decided to use this bright yellow pen for my final project. I used my Cameo & sketched the Chevron design onto white card stock, & then I slid the card stock inside my frame behind the glass.  Then I applied some vinyl lettering to the front of my frame that said I love you “bee”cause.  Isn’t that little bee cute?  I found him in the Silhouette online store.

Now we have a sweet place to write notes back & forth to each other! ;)
