Using the Align Feature & FREE Design Download

I don’t know about the kids in your life, but my grandkids LOVE Chicken Nuggets!   Pretty much a staple in their diet — McDonald’s, Chick-Fil-a, Frozen at home — doesn’t seem to matter.   So I thought that this design was PERFECT for a shirt for them! I want to share with you how I created this file, using the Charley and Blue Font Duo from the “Little Craft Bundle Vol. 9” at Design Bundles — and the awesome {Read More}

Designing with Flexishapes in Silhouette Studio — and FREE Cut file!

I love designing with Flexishapes in Silhouette Studio!   If you aren’t familiar with this feature, it is only available in Designer Edition + or Business Edition.   While there are so many great features in both of these versions, Flexishapes is definitely one of my favorites.   Flexishapes alone is enough reason to upgrade — in my opinion!     I have created this cute little Candy Corn pattern with Flexishapes & Point Editing in Silhouette Studio Business Edition! {Read More}

Its definitely that time of year!   Back to school — whatever that may look like where you live!!  Two of my grandchildren are being homeschooled by their Mama for the first time, and another one is attending a small private school — half in person and half virtually!!   And I know that others are 100% virtual — and still others are 100% in person!  So, it is definitely a strange, new world!   But, it is still a {Read More}

This year  has certainly brought a lot of unexpected changes in all of our lives & businesses — and All Things Silhouette Conference is no different.   So, the bad news is that due to the Covid pandemic & government restrictions & guidelines, we made the decision to re-schedule the “in person” ATS Conference to May 22-23, 2021 — with the pre-day classes on May 21.    Those that were registered have been notified by email thru SCHED, with all {Read More}

Introducing the NEW Portrait 3!

As some of you may know, my hubby & I purchased a new RV this Spring!  We are loving getting out on the road & camping — but I have been wondering how I was going to “sneak” a Cameo 4 into the camper and find a place to stow it while we are traveling!  (If you’ve traveled in a Motorhome, you know that EVERYTHING has to be stowed away or anchored down.)   So I was thrilled when Silhouette {Read More}

Working with Premium Fonts & Monograms in Silhouette Studio

Whenever there is a 50% off sale in the Silhouette Design Store (like there is now thru May 31), I like to stock up on some of the more expensive designs – specifically fonts.  So this sale was no different.   I downloaded some of the fonts I really liked  — and quite honestly, were the most expensive!   As I began working with them, I realized that many of them have multiple versions  — but they appear in different {Read More}
