I just got my cameo and I hardly know how to do anything.. where would you get free fonts from or shapes? twopeas has the digital section can I buy fonts or images from there and cut them on my cameo?? I love Heidi Swapp's handwrighting fronts can I purchase and use those too? Also how do I add them to my libray? Im so confused.. Sorry for the 20 questions!

Go to www.silhouetteonlinestore.com and every Tues. they put up a free shape of the week. They also have weekly clearance shapes and a section of new ones. They also have thousands of other ones you can buy.

I haven't tried it yet, but I watched this video about using digital things. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XyF0X779efU

I think you just download them to your computer, then when you want to use them open your silhouette software and go to file and bring them over. I wish I could help you more, but I've only used the files from the store so far, but I did find that video helpful. I plan to give it a try when I have time later this week to scrap.

Also, I got a ton of free fonts from dafont.com. I just downloaded them to my computer, then when I open my software if I go to the text tool, they all show up and I can pick from there what I want to use for my titles and stuff. Some fonts are too intricate to cut really well, but there are lots that are "fat" enough to use.

Just be careful about not downloading AND installing lots of fonts. Having to many fonts "installed" will make your computer run slow. You can download load as many as you love, just don't install them all. Instead just open them when you want to use them.

Yea I don't think I would install that many there is already a ton in my library that is more then enough I will need. I'm looking for the heidi swapp handwrighting type font it's loopy and beautiful that's about the only one I really want! She sells digital stuff on her website that's why I was wondering if I could use those images and fronts on the cameo as well as twopeas I mean you are supposed to be able to print and cut so I can't see why not unless it was to thin to cut properly. I'm gonna check out the tutorial! Thanks peas you really helped
