Silhouette Sketch Pens

If you haven’t used the sketch pens with your Silhouette cutting tool, you are seriously missing out! They are really neat and so easy to use. Silhouette just came out with a new line of sketch pens in all colors of the rainbow, as you can see above. So  many fun colors to play with!

When you use the sketch pens, instead of cutting, your Silhouette draws the designs. Pretty sweet, right?

Don’t know what a Silhouette is? Its a digital cutting tool that hooks up to your computer like a printer. But instead of printing, it cuts the design out with a small blade. Its really awesome! Read my Silhouette Portrait review here or my Silhouette CAMEO review here!*Note: you do not need a Portrait or Cameo to craft with Silhouette products!

Now you’re asking, what can I make with sketch pens? Good question!

DIY coloring pages

You can create your own coloring pages, art work, typography art, text, and I’ve seen people use them to address envelopes. {think wedding invitations, Christmas cards, etc} How rad is that?!

My personal favorite is the custom coloring pages that you can create with Silhouette Sketch Pens. I can make the coloring pages bigger than the standard 8.5 x 11″ coloring books with my CAMEO. Plus, I can personalize them with their names, design my own shapes to color, or put together a collection of shapes on a page. This is so perfect for teaching kids letters and shapes. You can create your own coloring sheet to help your kiddos learn. I love that!

This is also handy if you teach a youth group or church group. I teach Sunday school to the 5 year old little kids at our church and being able to create my own coloring pages for the kids that goes along with the lesson is awesome. And again, I can personalize these coloring pages to fit the needs of my lessons.

bunny coloring page

I created this really cute bunny coloring page to give to my kids on Easter from the Easter Bunny. How cool is that that the Easter Bunny is bringing them personalized coloring pages??! I’m so excited!

How to use Silhouette Sketch Pens Tutorial

Now using sketch pens are a breeze. You simply release the blade {flip the blue switch}, remove the blade housing, then insert the Silhouette sketch pen in its place, and then flip the blue switch back to secure it in place. Then when you are ready to send your design to the Silhouette, select the “Silhouette Sketch Pens” setting in the Silhouette Studio and load your paper/media as normal. Its really really easy to do!

    I’ve been scrapping for years and I became bored with mass produced embellishments. Couldn’t afford the really pretty things. 5.00 for 2 flowers? eek, so I’ve begun trying to do everything myself. Handmade if possible. Wouldn’t this just be the most awesome thing to have?
