Adding cutlines to translucent images - Silhouette Video Tutorial

Have you guys ever had an image that was translucent that when you try and add your cutlines in Silhouette it just traces every little detail when you just want to cut the outside? Well in this video I show you how you can do that with just a few steps.

As I said in the video, I am pretty sure there are a ton of videos on here showing you how to do this, but this is the way I do it, so I figured I would make a video for you.

Sorry about the absence over the last month or so. I want to get more regular with my videos, but I don't always know what you want to see. So if you have any requests, leave me a comment and I will try to record something for you guys.

I have also been toying with the idea of recording Plan With Me's using my samplers that I put out on my blog as free downloads. I don't know if you guys would be interesting in my techniques or in the order I put down the stickers. I love watching Plan With Me's, so let me know if this is something you would be interested in.

Thanks for watching!

    1. I really appreciate your input. Thank you so much!

  2. Thank you - that was something I needed take time to learn!

    1. Right!? I tried forever to figure that out and I finally did! I was so excited to share to save everyone else the headache.

  3. Oh my you just saved me hours of work. I would have never thought of doing it this way.

    Plan with me videos would be awesome!

    1. That makes me so happy to hear. I love helping others out with trying to figure out how to design in the Silhouette Software. I will try and do a Plan With Me soon.

  4. Jessica Thank you for sharing, I would love to see how you do your monthly cover squares in a video.

    1. Honestly, that video would be over an hour long and consist of profanities that would make a grown woman blush! Just kidding about the profanities, but not about the time. I had a video up a long time ago, but I was so new to making them that it was all over the place and confusing, so I took it down. Doing one would be hard because I change what I do each time I make one. I hope you understand.
