Organizing Your Silhouette Design Library

How to organize

I don’t know about you, but I am constantly downloading images & studio files that I find & think I will want to cut someday!  But, unfortunately, I download them – and when I want to use them — I can’t find them!  Or I forgot that I had them!   This applies to both images I find on the internet, and ones I purchase from the Design Store!  So, today, I’m going to share with you how easy it {Read More}
