How to Etch Slate with Silhouette

I have been using my Cameo to create stencils for Glass Etching for years!   I love it & feel like it gives such impressive results with a minimal amount of effort.   However, I had never etched on slate until recently.   I realized that EtchAll Etching cream can create a beautiful etch on slate, in addition to glass.   (Etchall is my favorite Etching cream – and I’ve tried them all.) So I decided to give it a {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}

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}
