Video Tutorial - Using Digi Papers with the Silhouette



I've been playing with the Silhouette Studio software and discovered some things I just had to share. There are so many file formats you can print out from the Silhouette. Take a look.

So here it is, my first Camtasia video (I'm test driving it this month) my first video on YouTube. Hope you like it and can use at least some of the information here.

I have a few more tutorials planned but if you would like to know how to do something with the Silhouette Studio software leave me a comment and I'll try to figure it out.








Thanks for watching and special thanks to The Graphics Fairy and Mel McCarthy over at Mel Stampz for letting me use their images in the tutorial. You can find great images on their blogs and at Mel's Flickr site.


Happy Crafting,

Fabulous tutorial, Katie. You make me want to use my silhouette for a change! (I've been afraid of it, since my big bad blade problems, but they sent me new ones). Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration. Can't wait for your next video (they must be loads of work to make though!) :-) P.S. You have the loveliest voice!

Just found this through Pinterest. My DH bought my silhouette for Christmas, so I am still figuring it out. Thank you! This really helped.

Just got my Silhouette Cameo for Christmas from my DH. A little nervous about using it -- thanks for the helpful information.

I just got my Silhouette last week! YAY! I am having issues importing allowed files into the Studio software and am hoping you can help me. I have downloaded all of Shery K Designs free files, which are mostly jpeg but I cannot drag and drop, import, nor open in the software. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks!

Very good tutorial. This may sound like a silly question, but is the star something you would print and cut? I just got my Silhouette and have a lot to learn. I'm confused as to why you would want patterned paper backgrounds or do you use the sketch pens to draw the patterns? Told you - dumb question!! Lol.
