If I pay for a graphic over at My Schick....
How does the graphic actually work?
I'm only used to the cricut & cutting words - and one silhouette figure so far with my sil
I'm afraid to buy any graphics yet.
Let me say - I hated trying to make things with the Cricut - all those tiny little pieces. Is it any easier with the sil? I'm assuming it would all be exactly the same. Just minus cartridges.

You import the shape into the Sil software and click the scissor icon up top to see if it has red cut lines. If it doesn't you need to use the trace tool up in that same corner, trace the shape, click off high pass filter and increase the threshold slider until it covers the shape correctly. Then you click cut outline and then cut the shape.

Is there a way to know before I buy it if it is going to have cut lines?
THere's a reason why I buy all my stuff precut!
But I want to use my sil so I can justify the cost - not just for titles.

It's really not difficult at all. I guess it just sounds like there's more to it.

Thanks Keianna I didn't know that, obviously it's too long since I read the manual! You have inspired me to go explore my Silhouettte a lot more : )
