I prefer to use the shortcuts in Silhouette Studio, it makes everything so much easier.
So today is my suggestion, to download the manual of Silhouette Studio, and go to the page "shortcuts" and print it out. Hang it up close to your PC/MAC so it easy to just throw an eye on it, when you are designing.
how do you avoid cutting out something that looks good in Silhouette Studio but is too big, too small, or the wrong proportions when you take it out of your cutting machine and realise that it is to late.
Have you done these BIG mistake, ruin your best cardstocks, vinyl or paper that you only had one of. I have done that to many times!!
So here is a very good tip how to avoid that expensive mistake:
Just a reminder that to day you can download a new Free Design in your Silhouette Design Store.
And if you are new to Silhouette Cutting machines you can see this short video on how to download it from Silhouette Design Store
If you not have the Silhouette Software downloaded on your computer you can download it here from Silhouette America, and that is also free.
and Yes I'm really addicted to #Fonts at the moment, and it is hard to force my self not to download all of them.
When you have a lot of fonts and images in your Silhouette Studio, it takes longer time to open, so be careful.
This website Cool Text, have some really good Dingbats and Dingfonts, Free to download, and they even can make a logo for you.
This week I have made a lovely Tag for my dear friend Bom. She loves to cook and to bake, and she always give her friends, a piece, whatever she have made. I found a cute glass jar to put the tags into.
October is a Pink month to pay attention to all strong women and families who are fighting breast cancer.
Life rushes forward in a mighty momentum with family, work, friends, leisure, and everything that makes life worth living.
But then something happens and you stop and wonder how could this happen to me?
The cancer took my mother's life in 2000.
Breast cancer sufferers me and my family in 2010, when I was only 49 years. The diagnosis was the most dangerous kind, there were many surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation for 1 year. I lost my hair and felt terribly bad.
But we did it, my family and me.
Without my husband, I had never survived.
To all women out there who are fighting breast cancer. Do not give up!
Yesterday I stumbled on this site www.newchanceprints.com, and they are selling
"Patterned Vinyl". How cool isn't that!
They also have a member group on FB, type in New Chance Vinyl and you should find it there.
So lovely, but for me, that are living outside US, it looks like they don't ship abroad, sorry for me.
Yes, wat can we use our "leftovers" of Vinyl?
I started to have a ton of them now.
So I sorted the colors and put the "ugly" one aside to use as a stencil, for painting on canvas, fabric and even on walls.
Here is how I made these lovely cushions for our bedroom.
I started in the Silhouette Studio and took a look in "my library", and find some really nice phrases to use. Life is beautiful from designer Basic Grey and I do believe in fairies from Silhouette. And I also made the Letters A, & and B for me and my husbands first letter in our names
I made them to fit the fabric and cut them out on my leftover vinyl,
Painted them in Fabric color. Before I painted them I put some paper inside the cushions so the paint couldn't go thru to the backside of it.
The finished painted Fairies. Before I put them on my cushions, I ironed them, so I can wash them in the future.
I have notice that my two printers don't come out with the same colors when I print out same designs, so I did a Color Chart, same as in Silhouette Studio Software.
Printed it out on my two printers and what I notice was that there is not the same colors.
My printer in Thailand is a HP deskjet and in Sweden I have a Epson.
So I thought maybe someone else have the same problem. Below here you can find the SVG file
for it just click on the picture.
Hej på er, jag har märkt att min 2 skrivare inte skriver ut samma färger när jag använder dem på samma design. Så jag gjorde ett färgschema samma som Silhouette Studios. Skrev ut det med mina olika printrar och då såg jag att nyansskillnaden var stor.
Min skrivare i Thailand är en HP deskjet och i Sverige har jag en Epson. Så här nedan kan du skrivat ut färgschemat på din skrivare för att se hur den kommer att se ut vid utskrift. Bara klicka på bilden så kommer du till nedladdnings sidan.
This is how it came out on my HP printer and the setting for this paper. I wrote on it which settings I used, so I can remember next time I would like to use this paper to see how the color going to look like when printed out.
Så här blev min utskrift på min HP skrivare och inställningen för detta papper. Jag noterade på utskriften för att veta vilket papper jag använt. OBS! Du måste göra en utskrift för varje kvalitet du har tänkt att skriva på.
