It finally happened on Monday! I have been working with the folks on the design team at Silhouette for a couple of weeks to get some of my files ready for the Silhouette online store. And now it is a done deal. I have been approved as a Contributing Artist. This means I can add up to 10 new designs a week to their online store. Those of you that have been following me for a while know that I got a Silhouette Cameo cutting machine for my birthday late last year and I have busy creating with it ever since. I decided to upload my shadow box series of projects first so as of NOW the cutting files for the following can be purchased from the Silhouette online store!

I love the oriental flavor of this shadow box.
This was my first shadow box composition made especially for a long wall in my newly renovated laundry room revealed here.
This design is the "out of the gate" favorite from the online Silhouette store.
They wouldn't let me show it with the bird's nest in the online store because that isn't made on the Silhouette, but I can show it that way here!
This is my most recent design. It certainly is easier getting files ready for Silhouette now that I know how they want them formatted.
This is all very exciting for me. I knew I wanted to share some of my creative ideas with the world and had been thinking of publishing an eBook. That may still happen but working through the Silhouette online store gets things rolling as I still gather my wits about me to write and publish an eBook.
And I can't tell you how it helps the creative juices to not only get flowing, but to also be productive! So many ideas....so little time.
To supplement my cutting files, I have created a new website with tutorials. My Silhouette projects so far are a little different from most of the files in the store, and although not complicated, having a few assembly instructions would be helpful. I tried adding instruction in the downloaded file but that was clogging up the speeds so Silhouette had me take them out. I launched Ashbee Design Silhouette Projects this week to provide the additional directions. It is a website dedicated to tutorials for the cutting files and I have five posts over there to go with the uploaded files.
It has been a busy week for me!
