Today JustRite Papercraft Designer Heidi Blankenship has an awesome tutorial showing you how to manipulate our SVG Files in the Silhouettestudio Designer Edition Software. Heidi will show you how to open files in the designer software, how to move the files, how to copy and place multiply SVG Files on your cutting area, how to ungroup files to use only a piece of an SVG file and how to resize an image. Plus Heidi will show you how to creatively use our butterfly stamp in our Butterflies Cling Stamps from our May Release to make multiply sizes of butterflies from one butterfly image.
We also have added lots of new SVG Files for older sets to our website in the past few weeks you can see all 26 of our SVG Digital Download Cut Files here. We will be continuing to add SVG files for older sets each week.
