Design of the Week - Summer Fun - 10th July 2018

Hello, hello - Karen here with a fun project made with this week's free design - Summer Fun.
I had the idea of using with printable magnet paper  and making it into a fridge magnet to hold my favourite photos from the summer. 

Fortunately, when I opened the file it was already coloured so I separated the pieces of the design, made the 'summer' into one word and placed the 'fun' underneath, resized, set the cutting lines to 'no cut' and added an external offset.  I grouped all the pieces of the ice cream together, set lines to no cut, resized and added an external offset.  

As, I obviously wanted more than one magnet I chose several other summer themed print and cut designs from the Design Store to use too.

I changed my page size to Letter and added as many designs to the page as I could fit. 

I then sent this to print.  My Silhouette had problems finding the registration marks and missed them by quite a way - resulting in cuts that were really out of alignment.  I resolved this by printing the page again but stuck a piece of paper over where the registration marks were going to print as this reduced the shine and my Silhouette registered the design first time and cut the magnets out perfectly.

  1. Never thought of covering up the marks with a matt paper and printing again, good idea.
