I O-fish-ially Like You - Valentine lacing cards

Another Cameo project from me.. With Valentine's coming up, I had to use the machine to make Valentine's for my son's class. 

I found this cute lacing card in the Silhouette Store.  It was perfect as I know lacing is an activity done in his class..

I O-fish-ially Like You!

This was the project that caused a little trouble - I had some trouble cutting out the heart fins.  I think I choose a wrong setting and the machine double cut them and the blade seemed  to skip.  I stopped the machine and checked the blade which had some tiny pieces of paper caught.

I searched online on how to open the blade casing.. I managed to do open and clean the blade, but had trouble putting the casing back.  In doing so, my finger slipped over the over the blade and I got a slight cut.. Kinda like a paper cut.. After that I put it away and let me husband figure it out.  I thought I might have broken the blade but luckily not.

My son glued the eye and fin.  He also is writing names on a little tag that says "I o-fish-ially like you!"  What's a Valentine without a corny phrase!

My husband and I are wrapping some plastic laces around them.  They'll be packaged with some Valentine stickers for each little friend.

And I think now I need to put away the cutting machine until my next bag is complete!


  1. That is the cutest idea!!! I might need to make some for fun for my toddler at home. Thanks! Love it!

  2. Love! These are so cute! Thanks for sharing!


  3. Nissa, your creations are lovely, I imagine how proud was your son to bring these fish to school, for children is gratifying to bring something home made by her mom. These fish are adorable, thanks for your explanation on how you made itusing the cameo machine. I still did not buy it, but you've convinced me. I need one.
