Video: Changing Colors In Studio For The ‘Little Words’

With all the shininess of my Little Words of late (see THIS post from a few days ago), I've had a few questions on how to change the colors...and even how to work with the frame in Silhouette Studio. So here's a little video for y'all showin' a few tips and tricks. Enjoy! (Make it HD for the best quality entertainment. ;) )   One other note, I mentioned that the little tool at the bottom is only available in the Designer Edition. While that is true, you can also pick up the color of another by using [...]

Changing Length Or Width Of Designs

Probably the most common way of altering a design to fit the size you need in Silhouette Studio is to grab those handles and pull and tug at them. But did you know there's another way you can do it on many designs that doesn't distort the shape? Welllll, check it out! (This technique is perfect for the planner kits too. :) )

Folders for Planners and Travelers Notebooks

There is one thing that has been on my to-do list for months now--ever since I decided to use a Midori Travelers Notebook for our cross-country trip. I knew that I wanted to add pages and layers to it in file folder form as well as dividers. Then when Layle asked for some of these same Planner/Notebook designs, I was so happy that it aligned with my wishes to force me to finally get 'em done! It's amazing what a little washi tape can do for having fun, especially in a book that doesn't have any rings to add pages. What [...]

Importing Files Into Studio | From Start To Finish

In the previous version of Silhouette Studio, you could only do a mass import of files if you were working with SVG files and the Designer Edition. But all that has changed now with version 3. You can now mass import DXF and JPG/PNG files into the Standard Studio edition. I just want to get up and dance! (Okay, maybe that has something to do with So You Think You Can Dance being on right now.) ...but still... ....exciting. like way exciting. The other major improvement to Studio version 3 is the ability to easily add your own keywords and descriptions. even more [...]

Friday Freebie  •  Page  •  Silhouette Video Tutorial

So, a funny thing happened last week. When I was making the sunshine freebie for last week I had a song stuck in my head. And sadly, because I don't know all the words, the only thing that kept going through my head was...sing it with me...Good Day Sunshine....bah da da da da da da.....Good Day Sunshine.... And on and on and on. Then Naomi sent me her page and I saw the Simple Stories 'Good Day Sunshine' title on there. And I thought, 'What a coincidence.' It wasn't until I was chatting with Layle that I realized that their [...]

it’s a magicalness kind of day

So a couple weeks ago I shared a serendipitous moment that created a magical photo. Here's a peek at those photos once more.         So of course that moment spurred a kit and a video to show it off! Therefore, here is the new Magicalness kit. This kit was created with using the designs as overlays in mind. There are 3-5 versions of each style, a 12x12, 4x6 and 4.5x6 with horizontal and vertical orientations, if needed (polkadots and diagonal stripes didn't need both orientations). All you need to do is bring in your photo, pick an overlay [...]
