Silhouette Vinyl Labels on White Boxes

Well I finally found the Adobe Illustrator windows xp plug in for the Silhouette. It is called Cutting Master2 CraftROBO and there is a You Tube install video.

My own pet peeve is that the software that comes from Craftrobo leaves much to be desired if you have ever used Illustrator, Freehand or any drawing software.

The Quickutz Craftrobo software is useful for cutting files that you purchase from Quickutz, but for fonts and scaling and control go to the Craftrobo site and download the plug in. You can more easily control the placement of images to cut. Cutting fonts is a snap, no tracing required.

So here are my Big Lots $2 nesting boxes from the Martha Stewart wedding clearance. Yes, you got all 3 boxes for $2.
The vinyl is a dark blue and the font is A&S Black Swan.

The boxes before the label...

The after photos -- ok I know there are a lot of photos, but I was so excited that I could get fonts to cut out well -- even in the small half inch high letters.

Here is my Creative Space and Craft Room

My first video attempt. Let me know what you think.
Dubbing to come, once I figure that part out. :)
I am attempting to upload it to Youtube now.
It's late. More link posts later.
OK, so you have to use edit HTML. Night Night.
