Start with the less intimidating but super cool ceramic tile engraving. It can’t catch on fire so it’s really approachable.

Grab a sharpie and search the forum for tile settings…

Then look for tile projects for inspiration…

You can get 4" white tiles from home depot for pennies, it’s a quick fun cheap project to try out.

You’ll love it. Non-PG materials are awesome, so many thing to try lasering. After tiles, other stone/glass projects are an easy thing to try… grab a nice dark-colored stone from the garden. Buy some slate coasters. The possibilities are endless. :slight_smile:

Welcome to the forum! Love your notebook cover!

Thank you. The flowers were a file I purchased from Etsy. I tried my hand using Inkscape to make the cover to work with my binding machine. Took me forever to make it (I’ve never used Inkscape before my glowforge). Lol

Your efforts paid off. You’ll learn more with each project, and will be an old hand with the software before you know it.
