“Hidden” Information about Your Silhouette Store Designs & Conference Announcement!

hidden info announcement

If you’re like me -you own a lot of designs from the Silhouette Design Store!  And if you have a subscription, (like me) – You just might buy up designs before your Store credit expires — and not really know what you are going to do with them!   Sometimes, I buy designs based on the little thumbnail picture in the Silhouette Design Store — and then when I open it — it doesn’t look at all like the thumbnail!  Or, you might purchase a design with multiple parts & not have any idea how to put it together!

So, you are going to LOVE today’s post!  There is some great “hidden” information in your purchased Silhouette Store Designs!  I’m going to use the example of a Box Card Design by Lori Whitlock (hint – more about Lori Whitlock later in the post!)  I love Lori’s designs – and have purchased quite a few of them!  This one is an adorable 3-D Box Card!   If you’d like to find this exact design in the Silhouette Store its Design ID #57264 .

So, when you open the design you’ve purchased in the Silhouette Studio — this is what it looks like!  Its a little overwhelming and somewhat confusing!

So, here’s where you find the “hidden” information!   After you have purchased the design, you can search for it in your Silhouette Library.

Lori is one of my favorite Graphic Designers — She has tons of designs in the Silhouette Design Store – -but in addition to her portfolio of Silhouette designs, you’ll find Lori Whitlock’s work in several other mediums. Look for Lori’s scrapbooking products at Echo Park Paper, digital scrapbooking at Snap Click Supply, fabric at Riley Blake, and Project Life designs with Becky Higgins. You won’t want to miss the Card Making Class that she will be teaching in Silhouette Studio software!   You’ll also have the opportunity to meet her & purchase some of her papers and other products in our Exhibit Hall!

Don’t delay in signing up for the All Things Silhouette Conference!   Registrations are coming in daily!  We are sure to sell out, probably during the Early Bird time frame – -which ends July 18th!   New teachers & vendors are being added, and I will continue to update you as that information becomes available!   Discounted room block of $109/night will be available, beginning June 9th — More info to come on that!

This is going to be an epic event — you don’t want to miss it!   Until next time — Hugs, Terri
