New Silhouette Curio class released!

I have so much fun playing with my Silhouette Curio and all the things it can do!
I want to share that with you!
Join me in this Silhouette Curio class to create an acrylic etched panel!
Check out the class HERE.

This is an Advanced Beginner Curio class that will cover the setup step-by-step to getting the Curio ready to etch, creating a template in Silhouette Studio for the etching, and then creating the design to be etched. You will create your own word art design using tools in the Silhouette Studio software! Tips are shared throughout the video class for getting successful etches with your Silhouette Curio machine.
