Hey everyone!
So sorry for the long delay this month. I appreciate everyone's patience.


This month is all about the Silhouette's Print & Cut feature. This is one of my MOST favorite features of this awesome die cutting machine.

To see the class handout PDF, idea videos and class samples, click here. .

CHALLENGE: Use the Silhouette Print & Cut feature to create your own designs/die cuts or use the ones offered in the Silhouette store on a layout, card or project. Upload your project to the Two Peas gallery (by May 19th, 2010), make sure to check the box next to this class when you do, and you will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a prize from Two Peas!

If you have questions please feel free to post a comment here or peamail me.

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone creates!

Awesome! I posted last month on a thread in the General Scrapping forum, saying how much I loved my new Shilhoutte but had no idea how to use the print and cut feature.

Very clear tutorial. I do have some print and cut images in my library. I'll start using them now.

I've been trying to get my Print & Cut to print to my printer and it won't. I've selected my printer and then at the bottom where it says to print and nothing.

Also in both the Print and the Printer Icon - they are both shaded grey and you can't click on them.

I'm redownloading the newest update but it says Silhouette SD and I only have the original Silhouette.

I'm sorry but I'm getting very frustrated. I was able to print a regular image on the Sil though and it worked fine. Just can't do anything with the print and cut.

Thanks!


Happy Scrappin!

I just downloaded the newer version from the Silhouette site and now the print and cut is working great! What an awesome feature! I really do need to play with my Silhouette more!

Great challenge, Nichol! What an informative video and fabulous layout! I used the print and cut feature for the first time on this layout: Christmas

how do I delete part of the design? I want to save paper and just have 1 of the designs print and cut, not all 4. I tried to ungroup, but it just ungroups the cut and the print. Any ideas. Thanks Rosalie

Almost any image (made by Silhouette) can be ungrouped so that you can only print and cut the image. Unfortunately images made by other artists are usually not able to be ungrouped.

No, the Silhouette P&C images are "as is".
