This is a file I created for the course I gave in February here in Germany ( where the Silhouette cutting machines are just getting popular) to show the basics of Silhouette Studio with the example of making popup cards.
You have to make dashed lines exactely at 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of the card. Then you can design the inner part just as you like to pop out.
We made a simple sky scraper card to practice the drawing tools and replicating.
The easter card files you’ll find in a .zip file ready to be cut here:
I wanted to make gift tags from my latest printable christmas papers. I printed some sheets of my favorite structured card stock. Then I created some simple gift tag shapes in Silhouette Studio, 6 shapes and copied 5 of them to make them smaller and fill the whole sheet and make the most of the papers. Nothing special, but so handy!
The file might be helpful for you, too, so I share it here as a freebie.
It is european DinA4, but with some minor adjustments you can use it with international letter size, too.
Just click to download and enjoy.

Last weekend I’ve been invited to a crafts trade show “Kreativ Tage Berlin” to show the making of my designs I create with the Silhouette Cameo. This was a wonderful chance for me to go in public and to meet users in my own region and I never expected there were so many!
The host company Kreativplotter.de gave me a brand new Cameo to play with so I could try the new touch display. I directly fell in love with the “repeat job” field, so simple and I need this all the time. The new USB slot is very handy while the SD card was a bit little and old fashioned. Apart from that and a new look the machine is almost the same. I don’t think I am going to replace the one I have as long as it is working well.
But I looked at all the Silhouette material I’ve never seen in real and at techniques I’ve never used like cutting fabric, heat transfer, vinyl.
And after I got a presentation of how the pixscan works and what you can do with it I HAD to HAVE a pixscan mat! What a cool thing!!!
I made a lot of new things for the fair and some files in Studio especially for this event like these snow flakes.
It is one page filled with snow flakes of different shapes and sizes. They are cutting very well with white card stock even if they are small.

It looks as if I will have more german followers now. So I started to create another blog in german language. There are not too many informations and tutorials for the Silhouette software and machines in german so I plan to focus on Silhouette related things and tutorials more while I focus on artistic things more on my english blog.
I added a link to my new blog at the top menu for those who want to follow.
For next week I need a number of little inexpensive give-aways. Ok, everybody is reading a book once in a while so I made book marks trying out the new Silhouette stamp material I just got.
I cut little snow flakes and christmas tree stamps.
Then I cut 4 different book mark shapes from black heavy card stock.
With a white pigment ink pad you can make beautiful stamps white on black.
I used some of my snow flakes die cuts and colorful protection rings to decorate the top.
Then I added a ribbon each with a knot in front and one in the back and done!
