ATC–Show me your hat!

Swap-Bot always has a bunch of great ATC swaps on the go.

This one was called, Show us your Hat.

So, here you go, here’s my hat (with a little French lesson thrown in, free!!)

Voici mon beau chapeau! (That’s French for “here’s my nice hat!”)


I created this one with one of my favourite Priscillastyles vintage images.

To add a little je-ne-sais-quoi (that’s French for “whatever”), I topped

the hat off with a couple of soft white feathers and a delicate flower.

A casually tied foulard (that’s French for “scarf’) and voila, cèst finit (that`s French for “it’s finished!”)

And now, this post est finit!! …well, almost…see my last two photos, below. LOL!



Oops! My ATC says “Swat-Bot” instead of “Swap-Bot”…duh!!!

  1. Hi, Cheryl,

    I just finally sat down and read your e-mail after a long day at work. It sounds as though there is something stuck in the memory and it needs to be reset to clear it. Here’s what I would do:

    1) Make sure your Cameo is plugged into your computer and into the electrical outlet.
    2) Turn off your computer and then turn it back on. This will clear the memory.
    3) Try cutting out a design on your Cameo. It should be fine!

    Shutting down and rebooting your computer is always the first step in trouble-shooting–something to keep in mind next time you have a Cameo problem!!

    I hope this works for you, Cheryl. Please let me know how it works out.

    Good luck,

    P.S. Thanks for visiting Globug Ideas. I really glad you find it useful!!

  2. Hey Gloria,
    What a wonderful and helpful website/blog you have. Congratulations! I looked through the help section you have in regards to problems with Silhouette Cameos. I didn’t find my problem, so I’m asking if you or anyone else has run into this and if there’s a fix.
    My cutter has been running like a champ for 4 months (got it for my birthday!). But yesterday I fired up my computer and turned on the Silhouette and even before I opened the software, the cutter just started working. I didn’t have a mat or any media inserted yet, so I tried stopping it by hitting the pause button. That didn’t work so I hit the stop button. That didn’t stop it either. So I then unplugged both the power cord and the cable attached to the computer. Then I opened the program and found the file I wanted to cut….loaded the paper on a cutting mat and turned the cutter back on. It took of cutting…..but not on my design, it was cutting a completely different design. It looked like a star burst. I let it go until it started cutting into the mat and since I had no idea what it was trying to cut, I didn’t want to do further damage to the mat. Again, I had to actually unplug the device in order to get it stopped.
    Next I restarted computer after unplugging cutter completely. After the computer started up I connected the device again. I attempted to adjust the settings and even though the device was turned on, plugged into power and a USB port on the computer the software indicated that the device was not connected.
    So….the Silhouette would cut a design of its own choosing, but refused to be available to the program. I’m pretty sure it’s demon possessed!
    I called the customer service line for Silhouette America, but it was Saturday and they were closed. I don’t know when I’ll have a chance to call them again during their help hours. I’m dying here! I use my device for my side business and can’t afford to be without it! Please say the solution is easy.
