Many of you have asked for a video on how to use our SVG Cut Files with the Silhouette Cameo and today Heidi Blankenship has a tutorial and a YouTube Video.
Heidi will show you every step of the process from placing your order on our website to creating her project using the SVG Files and Spectrum Noir Markers. Please note that the screen shots in the video are a little hard to see so we are also showing them here in this post where they are a little easier to see and follow.
Before we get started with today's Tutorial we have a prize package to give away from last week's Tutorial Tuesday post – One lucky commentor who left a comment on either Darsie's video or on last week's tutorial has one two stamp sets of their choice. Drum roll please……. this week's winner is from a YouTube comment…..
Michel E Thanks for sharing. Great tutorial.
Michel please send me an email
Congratulations Michel! Michel please send an email with a subject title – Tutorial Tuesday Winner to firstname.lastname@example.org with your shipping information and the name of the two stamp sets that you have chosen.
If you are reading our blog post from a feedburner email you will need to click on this link to see Heidi's Video here.
Step 1 – Visit JustRitepapercraft.com. On the Home Page click on the Shop Products Tab then click on the drop down that says Digital Cut File Downloads.
Here you will find our current selection of the digital cut files that are available for purchase. The light blue images indicate which items in each set will have SVG Cut Files.
Step 2: Browse through the pages to select the SVG files that you would like to purchase. Images shaded in blue indicate the items that will have cut files.
Step 3: Click on the image you would like to purchase
Here you can see the SVG image and an image of the coordinating stamp sets and the description of the SVG cut file as well as a direct link for the coordinating stamp set.
Step 4: Click on add to cart in the bottom right hand corner of this page.
Step 5: If you are finished shopping click on check out, if not to the right of the icon that says check out you will find the words continue shopping. Click on that and you can continue to shop and add the coordinating stamp set to your cart.
Step 6: Review your shopping cart and click on your form of payment and complete the required information. Now click on complete my purchase.
Step 7: You should now see this screen which will include your order number.
Step 8: You will receive a confirmation email indicating that your order has been successful completed. Then you may get an email from Paypal also confirming your order. Then you will receive a third email with the subject title Download for Order #. Click on the link in this email to go to your downloads.
Step 9: Here is what your SVG purchase will look like. Most of our SVG files come with two files – an exact cut file for items that can be exact cut (please note that die to the intricacy of some of our stamp designs not all images can be an exact cut – we will give you the best available option) and an offset cut file –which has a nice border around the stamped image and gives you a bit of wiggle room for stamping.
Step 10: Next you will want to download your files to a folder in your computer. Right click and save the files. We recommend making a folder for your JustRite SVG Cut files to save all your JustRite files in one place. You can download the files up to 3 times at which point the file will expire. If you don't complete all three downloads your files will be available through the links in your email for 6 months.
You can save your SVG's in your picture files or in your document files – just depends on how you organize your files in your computer.
In order to use our .svg formatted file with your Silhouette Cameo you will need to have purchased the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software from Silhouette which allows you to import .svg formatted files into your Silhouette Library.
Step 10: Open the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition in your Silhouette Software. Click on the File Tab at the top and then click on Import to My Library.
Step 12: Find the file in My Library and double click on it to open the file.
Here is what the screen will look like once the file is open.
Step 13: Next double click on the image and drag it to the top of your paper so don't waste paper. If you were making several projects with the same cut files you could add the additional cuts to your paper. We will cover how to do that in a later tutorial.
Step 14: Next click on the Silhouette Cut Setting (located in the top right). Select your paper type. Heidi clicked on cardstock. This will let you know the speed, thickness and number setting for your blade. Make sure you have your blade set at the correct setting.
Here is what the cut file looks like.
