Part 7 … Tracing Without Tears really Point Editing

Part 7 of the Tracing Without Tears series is not really about tracing at all. It’s about point editing, or node editing, which is prerequisite information for cleaning up traced images and so much more. I needed to lay this groundwork so I could answer your questions in the next video. So thanks for bearing with me as we veer off course a bit. Perhaps you’ll find this handy for more than just tracing.

Part 6 … Tracing Without Tears

For those of you who have been clamoring for a tutorial on tracing photos, I’m happy to announce the release of Tracing without Tears Part 6. I’ve learned so much along the way, and have become impressed at how much you really can do with just the limited capabilities in Silhouette Studio. I thought this would be the end of the series, but I’ve got a few extra tips and tricks that didn’t fit in the other videos so I guess there will be at least one more after this. Thanks again for all your kind comments and encouragement.

And in case you missed Part 1, you can find it here,Part 2 is here, Part 3 is here and Part 4 is here.

Part 4 … Tracing Without Tears

Today I’m posting Part 4 of the Tracing Without Tears series, which focuses on tracing for print and cut. I go through a half dozen representative examples including a cut file that has already been traced, a decoupage sheet, and several styles of clip art. I also unearth the mystery of the trace and detach button and show one use for the low pass filter. Thanks again for your enthusiastic response to this video series. Keep leaving your comments and keep spreading the word while I keep the videos coming!

Double-sided print and cut in SS

Once you’ve mastered print and cut with the Silhouette, the next logical step is double-sided print and cut. I see a lot of questions about this so I decided to make a video on how I do it. So many possibilities once you know the tricks!

Print and cut with CCR tutorial video

Cricut Craft Room finally fixed the bug that spit out the mat on some machines after each cut! To celebrate I’ve put together a few quick digis and a video to show how to cut them, or your own images or sentiments, with Cricut Craft Room. This demonstrates the hinge method, which also works in the same way with the Gypsy and Cricut Design Studio, as well as many other software packages on many other cutters.

Download the PDF here (goes with the Accent shape in Cricut Craft Room Basics cut at 2 inches) Be sure to print at 100%.
