  1. HI !! Do you have a tutorial on getting downloaded fonts to the silhouette program? i need help with this. Thanks, your website and info has been life saving!!
    anna

      1. I would like that email too please if you still have it. I’m having trouble downloading my fonts into my silhouette to. Also, WHERE do you get the glass cutting boards at? I have had a heck of a time finding any??? Just saw your sight via a silhouette user and I love it ! Am now subscribing. Thank you.

        1. Hahaha… I should have just posted the font info here to begin with, so here it is:

          Downloading/installing fonts is a computer thing. Silhouette simply accesses whatever fonts are installed on your computer, so all you need to do is install a font on your computer in order for it to be available in Silhouette. For me, using Windows, that means going to the file folder the font downloaded into, clicking on the zip file, then clicking on the font file. A window opens with “install” as one of the choices and I click it. The font is now installed on my computer and the next time I open Silhouette Studio, it’ll appear in the Text Style window as one of the font choices. If your Silhouette Studio software is open when you install a font, you’ll have to close it and reopen it for the font to be accessible in Studio. If you’re on a Mac…sorry, I don’t know what the process is…you could Google it. Good luck!

          The glass cutting boards I used for the trio of cutting boards and the Good King Wenceslas cutting board are from Walmart, but Bed, Bath & Beyond carries them as do many kitchen stores. If you happen to be in the Toronto/Mississauga/Hamilton area, check out Kitchen Stuff Plus for 3-pack at a great price.

          Thanks for your kind words, Lisa! :^) Happy Silhouetting.

    1. Thanks for the compliment, but I actually don’t sell anything at the moment. What would you like to order? ;^)

      What you can do is subscribe to the blog, if you like, and I’ll send you an email each time I post a new project or tutorial. Just go to the sidebar, scroll to find the Subscribe box and enter your email.

    1. LOL! Good one. You know what? Email me some suggestions as to what you’d like to see in a design for it and I’ll take it on as a challenge. :^)

    1. I was going to include instructions in the tutorial on how to do that, but the post was already so long. Now that I know there’s interest, I’ll make a point of adding it, hopefully in the next couple of weeks. Thanks, Pam! :^)

    1. Hi Tammie,
      No, I’m sorry, I don’t do that. I made a few cups for personal use, and I provided the file for personal use so others could do that, too, but to make money from selling Starbucks items is something Starbucks is entitled to, not me, so I don’t sell the decals or cups with applied decals. Sorry. I know the post with instructions is long, but the step-by-step instructions are easy to do. I encourage you to give it a try yourself.

  2. Hello Eff, I just stumbled across your blog and love it. Thank you for all of the detailed tutorials. I live in Toronto and noticed that you are Canadian (woo hoo!) Purchasing silhouette vinyl/HTV and rhinestones can be very expensive here comparatively to the U.S. Would you mind sharing where you purchase your vinyl? I have found a couple of places: happy crafters.ca and allimageprinting.com. I have a Cameo and used it to cut paper and now really excited about vinyl and HTV. Any suggestions on supplies for personal use would be much appreciated. Thank you! You’ve created lots of inspiration. :)

    1. Welcome! Thanks for your kind words. :^) Yes, fellow Canadian here—greetings from Calgary! I used to order my vinyl from the States until the dollar tanked, making it prohibitively expensive. Since then, I haven’t tried any of the Canadian online sources (I gag at the shipping fees for the personal amounts I need). Instead, I’ve had great luck with local sign supply shops for Oracal, Avery, & 3M brands of adhesive vinyl and Siser Easyweed HTV (my faves). The prices are reasonable, I can pick it up the same day, and no shipping fees(!). You should have several companies to choose from in Toronto…googling < Toronto sign supplies > will give you a selection.

      1. Thank you so much! Have you ever heard of or tried FDC4200? It seems to be in many supply stores here. Looking forward to more projects!

        1. You’re welcome! :^) No, I haven’t tried that one. In a city the size of Toronto, though, you should have the full range of brands available to you. Have fun! :^)

  3. Just wanted to let you know I just found your site and already have so many projects I want to do from it. Love your taste in items and look forward to future content.

  4. I have never made anything using vinyl because I find it really intimidating. Now I have found your blog with all the information I may need to apply the vinyl to different surfaces. I am turning 74 in a few days, so I need to get this hobby going. My first project is the Starbuck’s decals for the stainless steel coffee cups. I have been all over the web and cannot find those cups. Can you please let me know where you purchased them? I would appreciate the information. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge. Deanna

  5. Happy Birthday to you! :^)

    Oh, yes, do try vinyl, Deanna. So many colors and creative projects! :^) I find adhesive vinyl a little trickier to work with compared to other materials, but if I’m careful and take my time, things turn out great.

    I bought the cups from a local liquidation place, and haven’t seen them anywhere else since, so I’m afraid I’m not much help in finding these specific ones, but check places like Walmart, Target, large grocery stores, and pharmacy chain stores for travel mugs. I recently did a couple of Contigo travel mugs that worked fabulously.

  6. Thanks for all the “how to” posts! I am new to Silhouette and still learning!
    I have a clip art image that I am trying to reshape?
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Tonya

    1. Welcome to the world of Silhouetting! :^) I’ve altered a lot of clipart for my projects and have written a few how-to tutorials. Check these out:

      http://www.whatchaworkinon.com/how-to-alter-clipart-in-silhouette-studio-3

      http://www.whatchaworkinon.com/owl-alteration-in-silhouette-studio

      They should give you a good idea of how to reshape your clipart. If you get stuck, send me an email eff at whatchaworkinon dot com and I’ll try and talk you through it.

      A word of caution… using a random google image can get you in hot water legally, so make sure you have the rights to the images you want to use. Public domain clipart or free clipart (or clipart that you pay to use) that the designer has said can be used for personal or commercial use (the latter if you want to sell your work) is the way to go to protect yourself.

  7. I am having a hard time finding the free cut file on your site for the Starbucks travel mug. Can you tell me where I can find it?

    1. Here it is: http://www.whatchaworkinon.com/archives/189

      I want it to be easy to find, so it would be helpful to me to know what you did to try and find it so I can make changes to make it easier to find. For example, did you use the search box or dedicated link in the sidebar? Also, how did you get here…did you follow a link from somewhere? It’s possible the link needs to be updated, so if I know where it is, I can fix it. Thanks, Jill. :^)

      1. I had originally pinned the Starbucks logo post from your site thru Pinterest. I tried numerous times to click on that link on your page and I still did not get redirected to the proper post. I love all of the info you share and greatly appreciate your prompt reply.

        1. Thanks for your feedback, Jill. You’re a peach. :^) Well, I have egg on my face. I just checked that sidebar link and it’s got the wrong link attached to it. I’m so sorry! I usually check all my links, but this one slipped through somehow. Thanks to you, it’s now fixed. I’ll check my pinterest pins to make sure I’ve got the right link in there, too, but it’s quite possible the pin you were working from came from someone else who pinned from the homepage, which would insert the homepage link instead of the actual blog post link (I hate it when that happens! :^). But thanks for the alert. I appreciate your taking the time.

  8. Hello I am very interested in this and cannot open the files. I have the Silhouette Cameo and your files did not open. Please advise! Thank you

    1. For some reason many Silhouette files (not just mine) won’t open if you try and open them from outside the Silhouette program, so now I always open from within the software. To do that, use the ‘File’ drop-down menu in the upper left corner. Select ‘Open’ (if you want the file to open in a new window) or ‘Merge’ (if you want the file to open in the current window), then navigate to where the file is on your computer and click on it. It should open no problem in Silhouette Studio.
