Two-Fer Tuesday: Tags + July 4

It's Two-Fer Tuesday here in KBS Land. And we've got a great new kit for you! This little bundle has eight tags designed to add a tiny little detail to any project. Need a different color to match your project?  Well, these are not only PNG files, but the cut files have been included as well so you can alter colors within Silhouette Studio. Yeah, you heard me. :) If you have the Designer Edition, they will import in color and be grouped for better handling. If you have the standard edition, you can use the DXF file, but you will have [...]

Studio 3: Fonts Now In Inches Too? Oh Happy Day!

So a little bit ago I was helping a neighbor with her Silhouette that she's had for two years and hadn't used. Her daughter had used it for her, but that was about it. In showing her how to use the Text tool in version 3, a sweet little box caught my eye. It's funny how I'd been using the new software for a few weeks and I hadn't noticed it. I guess that's what happens when you are laser-focused on a project. :) Not only that, I'm just so accustomed to using points, I never thought anything of it. [...]

friday freebie: banner

I'm feeling the spirit of summer and all that it has to offer. Every year about this time we have a celebration of the city. In fact, every town in this valley has its own celebration, which means carnivals and fireworks and food all summer long. I can't help but think of the long banners that are put up as part of the decorations for the big days. Which is what brings us to today's freebie....and perhaps some other fun fair items down the road. I told you I'm in a  mood. ;) To download this--forever free--click the image or [...]

Scale Tool? Workin’ Cool.

There was one thing that really bothered me about the Scale tool in the previous Studio software. It didn't work right.  If you were to rotate a square 45 degrees and change the width, rather than it changing horizontally--from side to side, it still looked at it in that square form and would change it on the diagonal like this: Soooooo frustrating! But now? If you change the width of a rotated square, you know what you get? A diamond shape! Yahoo! I'm beyond thrilled that Scale now works as it should! elated. truly. On that note, have a wonderful [...]
