Hi! It's Jamie back with you today sharing a tutorial for creating a print and cut with your Silhouette dies! I am using one of my favorite cuts, the Blooming Woodland Daisy from Samantha Walker.
Step #1: Open the Silhouette die within your Silhouette Studio Software and resize the item.
Step #2: Ungroup the items by going to 'Object' and selecting the 'Ungroup' option.
Step #3: You will see separate boxes around each of the items.
Step #4: Select the grass and stem area then click on the 'Open the Fill Color Window' shown in the red circle to open the fill colors.
Step #5: Select a fill color of your choice.
Step #6: Click on the petals section and select a fill color of your choice.
Step #7: Click on the center section of the flower and select a fill color of your choice.
Step #8: Click on 'Edit' and 'Select All'
Step #9: Group the items back together by selecting 'Object' then 'Group'.
Step #10: Click on the 'Open the Registration Mark Settings Window' and click the Show Reg Marks box. This will show the registration marks on your page.
Step #11: Click on the 'Open the Cut Style Window' and select 'Cut Edge'.
Step #12: Click on 'File' then 'Page Setup'.
Step #13: Change your page to 8-1/2" x 11" (unless you have a large format printer that will handle 12x12). Click 'OK'.
Step #14: Click on the printer icon to send the print to the printer.
Step #15: Select your printer and click 'Print'.
Step #16: Once your page prints, click on the 'Send to Silhouette' icon.
Step #17: Follow the instructions on the screen and then click on 'Continue'
Step #18: Place your print on your mat as shown on your screen.
Step #19: Load your paper then click on 'Detect Automatically' and your Silhouette machine will scan your page for your marks.
Step #20: Set you cutting setting to match your paper then click 'Cut'.
Step #21: Remove your pieces from your mat and create!
