Silhouette CAMEO Light Tote Bag Review

When the new Silhouette CAMEO Light Tote bags were released a few months back, I immediately grabbed one.

I have to be honest, the price made me think the quality of this bag and the material would be on the lower end. But I was wrong!

Organizing Patterns into Sub-Folders in the Silhouette Studio Library

I use Silhouette Studio every day and yet there are still features I come across that I didn't know existed.

For example a few weeks ago I realized I could add sub-folders to the Patterns folder in my library and sort my imported patterns however I wanted! Mind blown. 

Silhouette Sketch Pen Solid Fill Hack

I get asked repeatedly about how to fill in sketch pen designs - specifically fonts.

This is a sponsored post but all opinions are my own.

I've shared 4 different ways to fill in with sketch pens using the Silhouette CAMEO or other Silhouette machines, but today I'm going to introduce you to another way! This one, in my opinion, results in the absolute best sketch fill so it's ideal if you have Designer Edition (which you'll need for this Silhouette tutorial).

Designing Block Out Text Designs in Silhouette Studio (Plus Free Silhouette Design download)

I get asked from time to time how to create text-based designs in Silhouette Studio where it appears the text is in a shape - usually a rectangle.

I don't really know what the name of this 'look' is...it's sort of like stencil-inspired text designs or reverse weeded text designs. Since I don't know if they have a name... I'm just going to call them 'Block Out' text designs.

Updating Silhouette Studio Software: A Complete Step By Step How To Guide

Every time there is a Silhouette Studio update I get questions about how to update to the newest version of the software. This step by step guide applies to updating to any new Silhouette Studio Version...beta or otherwise.

I know it can be scary and intimidating to update...but the good news is I'm here to walk you through step by step.

Silhouette Studio V4.1 Available to Download...BUT Not So Fast

After less than two months in closed beta, Silhouette Studio V4.1 has been released in open beta which means anyone has access to the free Silhouette Studio update packed full of bells and whistles.


I'm all about V4.1. I think the new features in Silhouette Studio V4.1 are off the charts.  I think you're going to love it...when it's ready or at least semi-ready. Right now it's not ready (in my humble opinion) and I would strongly suggest you hold off on downloading it.

I also can't help but point this highly anticipated version of the software was released late Friday, as we go into a weekend when Silhouette America's customer support is closed.  Another reason to hold off.

It's so, so tempting though...and that's honestly my fear.

What's even better news - especially for us boy moms - is there are some boy-ish patterns. Not to say that the boys can't rock the pink camo or that girls can't wear the basketball or football print heat transfer vinyl, but I know it can be tough to find patterned heat transfer vinyl that the guys get excited for!

How to Keep Circle Designs Round on Mugs and Glasses

Did you ever notice that if you cut a perfect circle shape in vinyl and then you apply it a mug or glass or some other cylindrical shape it ends up looking like an oval?

It can be super frustrating, but there is a solution to combat the circle-to-oval issue.

It's hard to believe there could be more free downloadable templates from Online Labels, but there are - and these too can be used easily with Silhouette Studio and cut with Silhouette CAMEO (Portrait or Curio)!! This time I wanted to show you how to find and work with the huge assortment of pre-designed label templates.
