The Best Way to Add Vinyl to Glass (And Making a Custom Whiteboard with Silhouette)

Sometimes you just have to add vinyl to glass. But it's not always best to put the vinyl on the front side of the glass.

7 Tricks to Cleanly Cutting Tiny Script Fonts on Vinyl with Silhouette CAMEO

One of the biggest frustrations for Silhouette CAMEO users trying to cut very intricate designs and text is the more intricate and the smaller the design, the harder it is to get a clean cut.

The problem is some of the most beautiful designs are the most intricate ones with scrolls and flourishes and swooshes and sometimes you just need to cut them small!  That's when having a few tricks up your sleeve for cutting very small designs or text on vinyl can be the difference between a chewed up design and one that cuts perfectly.

I recently came across this set of stunning Elegant Scroll Monogram letters from the shop Kut That Out (I have a coupon for you to grab it at 40% off at the end of the blog post)!  In case you're wondering you have to import each of the 26 letters in DXF and/or SVG format into Silhouette Studio. I use the bulk import method so it's fast and I'm not dragging and dropping each one individually.

Deco Gel Transfer Gel and Foil Review and Silhouette Tutorial

Tell me I am not the only who one has to try out their new crafting toys like now?!  I just got my hands on some of these brand new Deco Foil Transfer Gel. It was barely out of my mail lady's hands and I had the box open and the wheels were spinning on how I could use it with Silhouette!

As we've talked about before - you can't craft foil with your Silhouette CAMEO machine - it's just too thin.  But...the Deco Foil Transfer Gel is a brand new product from ThermoWeb - the same company behind Heat N Bond and the pretty Deco Foils.

CB09 Blade and Silhouette CAMEO 3: Will They Work Together?

You guys know I love my CB09 Blade...but I was super disappointed when I got my Silhouette CAMEO 3 only to realize my favorite blade for cutting vinyl would not fit in the re-designed blade carriage on the new Silhouette machine.

But....you guys...I was so wrong. I was so, so wrong and (in this case..take note, Bob!) I'm happy to admit it!

When I first got my Silhouette CAMEO 3 I immediately tried the CB09 in it and it would not fit.

Wait...What Happened to the Ultimate Silhouette Sticker Guide?!

And just like that the Ultimate Silhouette Sticker Guide is gone...kinda. But not really.  After a lot of thought we've decided to re-brand my second full-length ebook with a new title and some additional content.


You see the "sticker" reference just wasn't doing this 48 54 page ebook justice. After all, stickers are print and cut, but not every Silhouette user who does print and cut wants to make stickers.  We thought the title of this Silhouette guide was not making it obvious to those who might be interested in other forms of print and cut that this is the ebook for them, too!
