Did this video help you?

marsha ryan: Debbie, As a quilter I am interested in creating my own continuous line quilting stencils. Do you think you could help with this?

Susan Carpenter: well i am so glad that you are online right now. I have cut 2 but neither went through even though I have it on dbl cut. I have it on 7 it is a fairly new blade and can't find test cut on the new version. thanks

Susan Carpenter: Debbie thanks for the information on your comments here. It is exactly what I was looking for!

Mary Whitcomb: Thanks for posting this.. I am a beginner and this has been really helpful!

Liz Shireman: This is so helpful! Thank you so much for posting this. I have the exact material and am using the exact settings you said but it's not cutting all the way through :( I then tried a blade of 4 and it still didn't cut all the way through! HELP ME, PLEASE! with love, Liz

Debbi Michael: I absolutely love you, you are the best!! I have learned more from you than all others combined!

Blaine Garrett: "Blade of 3, speed of 1, thickness of 23, double cut"

Debbie H.: Awwww...Sarah, thank you. You are so sweet and made me feel great! I'll be making more videos along the way. I usually try to make the videos on questions visitors to my blog and the Silhouette Plus forum ask about.

Debbie H.: Hi Lizette, yes, the Silhoutte can cut acetate very well. Use some painter's tape to tape it to your mat. This will help prevent sliding. Hugs, Debbie

Angela Daly: You are the best, thanks for sharing !

Debbie H.: You all are so sweet! Thank you for making my day.Sometimes I think about not making anymore videos because so many are making them but then along comes a sweet comment or tow and it makes me realize it's worth the time. xxx-Debbie

Georgette M: I have seen that there are stencil blanks at places like AC Moore and similar stores. Are those too thick for the Cameo to cut?

Godless Glen: Cool video! I love making stencils too on my Cameo but it took me a while to figure out the settings. I think my settings were speed 3, thickness 33, blade 4. This also gave me a very clean cut. I had one small piece to weed. Anywho...do you like using the Duralar better than the Stencil film? Do you think it cuts better and is it more durable?

Amrita Sodhi: Hey , i have a very basic question ................everytime i select a tool lets say a square , i have to go back n select my cursor (pointer tool ) again plz help me ....................

groovyvirgochick: Don't stop I love your tutorials I find yours the best to understand for the SD.

Godless Glen: Diana, unless it is a "stencil" font, the insides of the letters will fall out. Just search in google and there are all kinds of free stencil fonts. There is another option. You can create your design with your font of choice, open it up in the Silhouette software and add shapes over the places where the inside parts would be cut out, like the inside of "A's". Then use the "subtract" tool under "modify" and it works like magic! Basically you are making your own custom stencil font. :)

Debbie H.: Hi Diane, it seems a bit overwhelming at first but it does get easier. If you want to cut out just letters it should work, depending on the font you're using, by just typing in the letters/phrase you want, draw a rectangular shape around the letters and cut. If you would like to email me so I can go into more detail, please visit my blog and click on the "Email Me" icon on the right hand side. YouTube limits comments to characters. Best wishes, Debbie

Debbie H.: Hi Ibakebyamrita, by default, after drawing a shape it should go back to the pointer/cursor after clicking on the shape drawn. You can make changes to your tools by going to : File, Preferences, Tool Selection. Make sure the radial button " Choose Select" is ticked under the "After Creating A Shape". If you ever need any help. Please email me. The link is on my blog. It allows me to type in more detail. YouTube limits it to characters. xxx- Debbie

Debbie H.: I apologize for the jiggly video. I didn't use a tripod. The Cameo settings I used are: Blade - 3 Speed - 1 Thickness - 24 making sure to tick the Double Cut.

Susan Jackson: I have followed the instructions for doing a print and cut, but the Silhouette is still not cutting a banner template purchased at Silhouette on the proper lines.

groovyvirgochick: Don't stop I love your tutorials I find yours the best to understand for the SD.

Godless Glen: I've seen those stencil blanks. I didn't like them as much. If I remember correctly they ripped more easily than the Graffix stencil sheets so it might not be as durable.

Debbie H.: Hi Susan, have you tried cutting other PnC cutting files and had good results? If you have had good results, the issue may be with the cutting file. You may want to contact Silhouette support. Also, make sure you have the correct cutting mat selected. I did a PnC the other day and forgot to choose the 12 x 12 mat. It cut my PnC way off. I hope this helps

Debbie H.: Hi Georgette, I've not seen the stencil material at other stores. I bought the Grafix .005 and .007 at pickle Blick. It worked perfect. Make sure to double cut. If you already bought or have some of the stencil blanks, do a test cut first. I wouldn't want you to ruin a blade. The other thing you might want to do is to use some painters tape (blue tape) and tape down the stencil material. I've learned, since the video this is very helpful. Hugs, Debbie

Sharon B: Hi Debbie Thank You so much for your fabulous tutorials.I'm going to give this a try.Materials are difficult to get in my country so I have to try different media.I have a great idea for stencils and paint..now to find the paint..lol Love your channel so much!!

Blaine Garrett: Could you post what settings you used for blade depth, etc? I'm going to pick some of this up. thanks for the vid.

Lizette Lehmkuhl: Do you think acetate would cut on the Silhouette or is it too smooth? Have you tried it perhaps? I live in United Arab Emirates and I won't be able to find the stencil material here. Thanks

Diana H: I have a new Silhouette Cameo and it seems like there are so many steps you have to do to complete anything. I have watch a lot of tutorial videos, but I am still not understanding how to cut font stencils I want to use for paint stenciling. I don't understand how to keep the inside of letters intact?

Debbie H.: Hi Blaine, I've actually cut it on different settings depending n how old or new my blade is. the best settings for a good blade is Blade - 7, Speed - 1, Thickness -33 and Double Cut. When I used an old blade I had to set the blade up to 10. I hope this is helpful. Best wishes, Debbie

Sarah Beverly: I love your videos! I only recently found them and am so grateful that I can learn from you how to design my own images and also all the little tips and tricks. When I get stuck I got to you for help! You are the best; no one shares the information like you do. Thanks for helping me understand my machine!
