Ok, so I do like my Silhouette, I really do! And I also like all the SVG's from Lettering Delights, but I can't use SVG's in the Studio software for the Silhouette. In comes Make-the-Cut, which can both use SVG's and cut to the Silhouette! So I skip a lot of steps of converting files while using MTC with the Silhouette, and I like things that are quick and easy! And of course there are a ton of MTC files out there that will be able to be used as well. There is a link on the left of my blog where you can try MTC out before you buy, and a code for a discount on the program as well if you are interested.
It is pretty easy to get the Silhouette set up with MTC, there is a step by step tutorial here... Creative Designs Cakes tutorial There is talk about making MTC even easier with the Silhouette in the near future.
This is a Lettering Delights download I bought, and I wanted to make a card with it. I opened the SVG in MTC (1). I also added a shadow layer to make my cut around it.
To start, I kept the layer on I wanted to draw (2), and turned the shadow layer off (3).
I then added my Chomas Creations Silhouette mini gel pen holder to the machine and sent the file to the Silhouette to draw.
Then I turned off the draw layer (4) and turned back on the shadow layer (5). Without removing the mat from the Silhouette, I removed the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder from the Silhouette and added the blade back in and cut the card.
