Silhouette Print and Cut Basics to Design Files to Troubleshooting Course

Print and Cut Step-by-Step & More!

Join me in 2+ hours of video course that covers Silhouette Print & Cut from step-by-step setup, to working with many different file types for print and cut, and my troubleshooting tips. This course is divided out into 3 main videos covering each of these topics in depth.
By following these steps & tips, print and cut can expand your Silhouette skills.
Let's take the anxiety out of print and cut and get started.

Supplies Needed:

- Cardstock – I use White Recollections brand from Michaels – 65 lb is what I use

You will need to use whatever your printer can pull through correctly. Some printers do not like thicker cardstock

- Printer – a good quality printer will work

- Print and Cut designs

- Silhouette machine

**You do not need to use these exact files but I am providing the file information in case you want to use the same examples. The class is designed to give you an overview of many file types that can be used with print and cut.

Silhouette Secrets+ by EllyMae

My name is EllyMae and I am the owner of Silhouette Secrets+.

I am a wife, mother, and lover of all things wine (as you'll notice in my projects & posts). I won a Silhouette Portrait in 2013 and the first time I used it, I knew I needed the bigger Cameo. At that time, there was not much information out there, but I found what I could and learned by testing & creating things. I love to learn new things that can be done with the Silhouette machines and have turned that into teaching others what I love to do.

I was encouraged by many to start teaching classes and when the TJC Instructor Program was announced in 2016, I signed up. It was one of the best decisions I've made and have met so many great friends & colleagues just because I took a chance. I now teach private lessons & local classes in the Northern Virginia area. I have also had the privilege to be on staff for the Curio Intensive Retreat in June 2017, staff at the All Things Silhouette Conference June 2017, Nov 2017, staff & an instructor at the ATS Conference in Nov 2018, June 2019, November 2019, Virtual ATS 2020, and the instructor at 2 virtual Curio events in 2020. I love to continue expanding my knowledge of what these amazing machines & software can do.

I look forward to sharing the love of Silhouette with all of you and welcome you on this journey!
