Creating Offset Titles | A Silhouette Cameo Tutorial

Bone Sweet Bone Scrapbook Page with Offset Title by Katrina Hunt 17turtles

Fall is finally here. The leaves are changing and the temperatures are getting cooler. I love the colors of fall, but not what comes next...winter! So how about we focus on something that we can love all year long? Today, I'm sharing a quick Silhouette Cameo tutorial on how to create an offset title. I was inspired to put this tutorial together because of the awesome Bone Sweet Bone Scrapbook Page that Katrina Hunt recently shared here on 17turtles. She used one of the titles from my Puppy Love Digital Cut File and I loved how she created an extra layer to help the title stand out on her layout.

CREATING OFFSET TITLES

To create an offset title begin by opening your title image and re-size it to your desired dimensions.

To create the offset for your title, select your title image and the click on Offset. You can also adjust the amount of offset (which is the distance that is around the image) by sliding the blue arrow, typing in the number or using the small up/down arrows. Once you are satisfied with the amount of offset, click apply.

Now that you have your offset, you will want to separate the images before you begin cutting. Select the offset image and drag it away from the title image. Position the images on the mat as desired and you are now ready to cut.
