Can someone please direct me to directions on how to correctly download cut files from the Two Peas store and them how to get them into my Silhouette Library? I checked out the Digital Forum here which starts out with `help´ for newbies but the list of `help´is from 2007 and most of the links are broken etc. Excuse me for sounding like an idiot but I really need help. Tried YouTube and more for help and everyplace is different and I can not figure out what will work for me.

Thanks so much everyone, especially biochemipea - just needed to change file type to `all files´ and it worked!

I have the Designer Edition and I just open the Sil program, open the file and drag it onto my Silhouette mat.

Once you've downloaded the files onto your computer, you can just open the Silhouette Studio software and select File > Open and then find your downloaded files. Then you can position/resize it within SS if you need to before cutting. HTH!

If the file isn't a .studio file, then you need to make sure you have "all files" selected in the file type drop down menu.

Or, to be clearer:
In studio:
file > open
and then at the bottom of the window that opens the very bottom option says "files of type:" and you need to select "all files (*.*)" from the drop down list.







See things that shine on Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube.

Ok, forgive me for sounding stupid but I'm new to the Cameo world. What kind of digital files here at 2P's can we use on the Silhouette? I was just looking in the digital store yesterday and didn't see anything that looked like I could use on my Cameo. Can someone link an example to the store for me please?

Thanks!
Karen

Karen-

there are a few specific "cut" items here at Two Peas , but you can also use any of their png forms to "trace" in the Silhouette studio and cut. The possibilities are endless!

You can buy a digital shape, import it into the SIL program and use the trace feature. I am getting double use out of my digital supplies.
