My Love: First try with the Silhouette Cameo!

OMW!!! I am so excited!!! I took the plunge and bought a Silhouette Cameo digital die cutting machine!!! I have been considering this for over a year, and now the time was right!!! I had Christmas $ sitting there, and wondered what to spend it on... Well, it's all spent now!! :)
So, I took it home, installed it and within 10 minutes I had die cut my first title!! It was SOOO easy to use!! Second time, I downloaded a free font, installed it and die cut another title!! I a in love!! I have tons of files saved on my new pinterest board... and the ideas are coming fast and furious!!! If only I had the time.... It was easier to make time to create when I was getting paid for it... LOL! Now it's harder to justify the time I want to spend creating! :) Oh well... I'm totally enjoying this time of free creativity!!
So, on to today's project!!

I downloaded a free cutting file from Scrapbook and Cards Today... they have a monthly cut file designed by Nicole Nowosad of Just Nick designs. I actually downloaded all of their free files from the last 2 years... if I'm being honest! LOL!!! The Feb 2016 file is adorable!! It's a fun hearts background piece!

 Isn't it adorable?? I backed each of the hearts with patterned paper and mounted the entire piece with foam tape to give a bit of depth. Love the effect!

The title was created using the "Dancing Script" which I downloaded for free online! Found it on pinterest! Then i created an "offset" piece, which worked as a shadow/frame for it! Love it! So easy!!So now, needless to say, I'll be using lots of fun  cut files and fonts in the future! I'll link to them all when I can!
