Let’s Explore Silhouette v4 in 2018 & 2019

Wow! 2018 has sure gone by fast!

There has been so much that has happened – what a year!

I started the year with the goal to have a blog post every week and I only missed 1-2 weeks, so I’m counting that as a success! On to next year!

I started the year out with a series called Let’s Explore v4 and have learned so much going through the software in detail. There are some features that I had never used and I learned so much as I researched and played with it. This program is so powerful and it continues to amaze me all the time.

This Let’s Explore v4 series has been so popular that I will continue it into 2019 and I’ve created a special section on the blog for it all. Find it HERE.

There is still so much more to explore and more new features coming with the v4.2 release.

In addition to the series, I added some projects in here and there that I used the tools in the Silhouette v4 software to complete.

  1. I am looking forward to each and every post. I keep learning something new with each one. Your posts remind me of the Silhouette program itself where there are 2 or 3 places to delete, ungroup, weld, etc. When you post I find I do the project the same or there are one or two different ways of doing things. Your detailed instructions are awesome. This post may sound a little over the top with compliments, but I mean what I say. Plus, I love and appreciate my Silhouette more with each new post. Thank you so much Elly. Happy 2019 to you.
