Customize Your Designs In New Ways

Hello, my Silhouette friends! Today I want to show you a terrific new feature that became available with Silhouette Studio® version 4. It’s called Object on Path, and it’s pretty cool. Now you can take any shape on your page and drag it to another shape, and it will follow the curves and contours of that shape you’ve selected as your path! It’s similar to Text to Path, but it works with shapes instead of text. For this project, we’ll add leaves to a circular path and add the finished design to a mirror candle base.

Save Summer Memories With A DIY Time Capsule

Summer really is the best time of year; swimming, vacations, hiking, and exploring create great memories. What better way to hold onto these memories than putting them in a time capsule?

My nephews and nieces are always looking for things they can put into their time capsules, whether it’s a movie…
