February Featured Class & Silhouette “Secrets”

Silhouette “Secrets” – February 2023

February Featured Class and Coupon Code

This month’s features class is

Glass Etching with Your Silhouette

This is a great technique to use for personalized gifts!

In this class, we use the Silhouette software to create stencils for glass etched projects.

I chose to use several different shaped objects in the class to show tips for them all. You do not have to etch the same objects, but it’s good to know tips for multiple shapes. Not all glass objects can be etched. Tempered glass and some types of cookware cannot be etched due to the composition of it. The only real way to know is to test it or learn from others.

We will use the Silhouette Studio software to size the stencils, cut stencils with the Silhouette machine from both Oracal 651 & Oramask 813, transfer the stencils to get a good seal, and then etch with etching cream.

Glass etching is a great way to create unique projects that can be used for home décor, gifts, and more!

Silhouette “Secrets”
– Because some things are just too good not to share! –

Silhouette “Secret” #1

If you are a paper crafter, you may have heard of the Dreaming Tree website. They have some awesome files!
This past month I shared a way that can save you time when working with their files, especially if they have many pieces to the file.
That is the SVG Merge program.

Silhouette “Secret” #3

I just released a new blog post on Silhouette Library Issues & Troubleshooting Tips.
I have been seeing more posts on social media of the library not syncing or missing files, which means some of you may also be experiencing the same thing.

Check out this new post HERE
I am sharing quite a bit of information in it. Once I started to write it all out more and more just kept flowing and like my tagline says
– Because some things are just too good not to share! –
I have a hard time not sharing it all for you!
