Add a new material type to Silhouette Studio software

Silhouette Tutorials - add new materials or new media to the Silhouette Studio software. By janet Packer craftingquine.blogspot.co.uk. Full tutorial over on the Silhouette UK Blog.


Hello again, over on the Silhouette UK Blog today I have a post to show how to add custom media to the list of cutting materials in the Silhouette Studio® software. You'll find adding custom settings can be a HUGE time saver.

My post includes a step-by-step guide (using version 4.1 of the Silhouette Studio® software).

The media I added is glitter wallpaper; which cuts beautifully on my Cameo and Curio. I tested it making bows for my Christmas tags and parcels using Lori Whitlock's 3D Bow from the Silhouette Design Store.

Pop over to the Silhouette UK Blog if you have a Silhouette and haven't mastered this process yet.  If you discover anything extra about adding new cut settings it would be great to add it as a comment and share it with the wider Silhouette community too.

Hi, I'm sharing a new cardmaking technique for delicate or detailed cutting files over on the Silhouette UK Blog today.

In recognition of Remembrance weekend, I have used a beautiful poppy file by Hero Arts (#27110). This is my grandad who served in WW1 as a teenager.

These elegant cards are made with adhesive foil and acetate, overlaid on a printed background and mounted within an offset of the shape.  Using the Silhouette Printable Foil gives a fine foiled-effect without the need for heat or messy embossing powders. My photographs really don't do justice to the depth, dimension, and prettiness of the cards in real life.
