Each week we’ll explore a feature of the Silhouette Diecutting Machine as it pertains to Printable projects using Silhouette’s revolutionary Print + Cut feature!
You've probably used your Silhouette to cut titles, shapes from the “My Library” feature, as well as purchased shapes online. Maybe you've used Print + Cut images from My Library. Then you’re ready to take on Print + Cut in new ways!
This course will help you take your skills to the next level by creating custom projects using your Silhouette Diecutting Machine.

Each lesson we'll create at least one project using the skills featured that week.

We’ll use Print + Cut Shapes in My Library to create a fun project. We’ll also cover tips and techniques for getting the best results when using the Print + Cut Feature as well as the range of materials that can be used with the Print & Cut function, such as temporary tattoos and printable magnet paper.
