Not a designer, but want to learn how to design in Silhouette Studio? The Ultimate Silhouette Guide to Designing in Silhouette Studio is a comprehensive, self-guided design course that will teach you the skills and techniques you need to master designing in Silhouette Studio through a series of written lessons and almost 4 hours of video tutorials.

 Intimidated by designing in Silhouette Studio because you have no formal design training? That's okay - I'm self taught too. But you don't have to be!

Take a peek inside at everything you'll learn in this 18 part design training.

  When you learn to create your own designs in Silhouette Studio you can stop buying shapes and text-based designs and start using your craft stash on something else! You can create custom designs to fit your needs - and even create personalized designs for your customers in the finished format. (Just remember you can't sell digital .Studio files...but I will show you how to convert your .Studio files into SVG files.)
My newest  - and most extensive course - combines written and video lessons each 100% supporting the other.  The 100+ page digital download ebook is enhanced with 3.5+ hours of corresponding videos and breaks down the designing process into easy to understand and actionable lessons.  

When you purchase The Ultimate Silhouette Guide to Designing in Silhouette Studio you can instantly download the PDF ebook which contains the direct links to the video courses right inside! The videos can be viewed by streaming online as many times as you'd like and can be stopped or paused mid-course so you can easily follow along.

The Silhouette Studio Design course will help you gain a firm understanding of the design, editing, and drawing tools, and actions needed to create designs.  More advanced lessons cover techniques that will take your designs to the next level including how to create double sided print and cut designs, designing stand up and pop up shapes designs plus an introduction to the new 3D Silhouette ModelMaker software.

Take your time and learn at your own pace with this course which is designed in chronological order so you can build on the skills as you master them. The 10-20 minute videos following each of the 18 lessons will help you further understand the design process. You're encouraged to follow along with the videos - stopping them as you need to - as we believe the best way to learn is to do. Those who've already purchased The Ultimate Silhouette Guide to Designing couldn't agree more!
