Silhouette Mint Photo Stamp Tutorial & Septemer Silhouette Sale!

UPGRADE vs. UPDATE – and my Favorite Upgrade Features!

I often get the question from attendees at ATS and retreats on whether or not they need to upgrade their Studio Software — and my answer is always YES!   And there is also the question about what is an Update –  I know that it is a little confusing — the different between “updates” — which are FREE — and “upgrades” – -which are not!  So, I wanted to share that with you today & highlight a few of {Read More}

Organizing & Viewing Your Fonts in Silhouette Studio

I don’t know about you — but creating just makes me happy!!   I love taking a plain piece of fabric & turning it into a little dress for my granddaughter — or a piece of pretty vinyl with a white mug or t-shirt,  & add a special sentiment that brings a smile to someone’s face!  I know you feel the same, and that’s why you craft!!   (Believe me, its not to save $$, right).

I don’t know about you – but I love a good sale!  And I have to admit that I have spent a lot of time & energy in the past, stalking Amazon on Prime day to see if the things that I need (want) were actually on sale!!  Sometimes I have even been known to buy things that I never thought about buying — just because they are on sale!  (Yikes — hello FB Marketplace?)
