FREE Online Silhouette Class!

So many of you know I’ve recently launched The Nikki, In Stitches Craft Academy where I teach online classes. And, more specifically, my first program there is called Crafting With Your Silhouette, where we cover in detail how to use Silhouette cutting systems.

Well, it seems like A LOT of people received a Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait for Christmas and needed some help getting started with it.

To get everyone moving and grooving with their machines, I hosted a LIVE online class and it was SO MUCH FUN!

We covered where to find supplies, where to find free designs, what make good projects to start with, and then we actually went step-by-step through creating, cutting, and transferring your first design!

You can watch the replay of the class by clicking here.

It will be up FOREVER! You can rewatch, pause, and rewind as often as you’d like!

    Is there a trick in moving the white rollers? I just can’t get them to move out of the little notches no matter how hard a try.

    • Lily Payne says:

      you can twist the white roller and move it up to the next stop. There are only two ways for the white rollers. WHen you first get the silhouette the rollers are on one of the . The other one is in front of it a few inches

    I get no sound on the beginners video

    • Nikki says:

      It could be an issue just with whatever browser you’re using.
      Try switching and see if that helps!

  4. Mary Jane Hayslett says:

    I am looking forward to the beginner’s class on the Cameo. I hope to check out some of your other classes also.

  5. Walter says:

    hi I just bought a Cameo and I’m interested in learning more. How can I join your classes?

  6. Barbara Johnson says:

    I am new to using the portrait and was wondering when your next class is? I need help with this. I have watched youtube video after youtube video and this is not helping.

  7. Chrissy says:

    Can you please tell me where I can find the top 10 sites for free designs? Thank you!

    How do I fill in block letters with color?

  9. Tina says:

    Hi Nikki,

    I have purchased a new Silhouette Cameo. However, I do not know where to begin or what to press. Can you point me in the direction of where to start with your online classes? Also, is there a way I can work in the program while I am taking the class or do I take notes? Lots of questions

  10. Cara says:

    When I download the two fonts recommend, my MAC won’t let me add them to the Silhouette software. Could you help me out?

    • Nikki says:

      On a Mac, you should be able to install the fonts so that they appear in your Font Book. Then restart your software and they should be there.
      Are they appearing as installed in your Font Book???

  11. Nina says:

    Hi Nikki I am going to buy a Silloutte Cameo 2 and wanted to know If there were any bundles or places you suggest me buying it. I am so excited to learn with your videos. I really appreciate your help.

    • Nikki says:

      Hi Nina!
      I’m so excited for you!
      You can find great bundles sometimes right through Silhouette, but many people actually keep their eyes on HSN for their craft day…they usually have great prices! Some people also find them on Amazon…you may want to peek there!

  12. Laura says:

    Hi Nikki,
    I’m so excited to find your site! ? I purchased my Silhouette Cameo several months ago and I am now ready to devote some serious time to learning how to use it, and this is just what I needed! In fact, my husband came home with several Yeti “knockoffs” from Walmart for me to personalize for our family, so now the pressure is on to learn how! Lol

    I have a few questions for you: Do you have a particular store or website that you recommend for purchasing vinyl that works best for the silver Yeti cups or on glass? And I noticed that you offered a promo code for a free month in one of the comments, so being a former school teacher who always looks for deals, I just had to ask if you will be offering that again anytime soon?

    Thanks for your help!

    • Nikki says:

      Hi Laura!
      I’m so exceed for you! You are going to LOVE your Silhouette!
      I buy most of my vinyl online from Expressions Vinyl. I am not affiliated with them…I just love them. They are great customer service, super fast shipping, and an awesome rewards program. Plus, they send out tons of coupons!
      Enrollment is closed in class until the new software is released. I need to see how different it is from the current version. If it’s similar enough, enrollment will open back up immediately. If it’s too different, it will take me some time to update all of the lessons.
      Be sure your email address is on the subscriber list here on the site by entering it into the sidebar. You’ll be notified when classes are open again!

  13. Largmarg Everett says:

    Hi, I am so interested in the Rhinestone bundle. Can you help me with this bundle? Thank you in advance.

  14. Joan Roberts says:

    I can’t sign in to the silhouette store, from my silhouette studio, to get my designs I either purchased or that were free,I’ve used two different browsers, plus how do you get the designs into silhouette studio ,in my computer , this is so crazy. thank you

  15. Ruth cornish says:

    I was watching the beginner class and when you changed fonts from Ariel to leelawadee yours changed I cannot get mine to change. What am I doing wrong?

  16. Terri Larabee says:

    If we sign up to be a member are the previous lessons/classes available to us? I have had my Sillouette for about 2 years, I have pulled it out a couple of times, got frustrated and packed it back up. It is so overwhelming with so much to learn!

    • Nikki says:

      Hi Terri,
      This is my latest class, STUDIO Foundations: When you sign up, you get all the lessons immediately and they are yours forever! You can continue to come back to the site to watch videos, but the PDF lessons can be downloaded right to your computer and you can use them whenever you’d like! I hope to see you in class soon!

  17. I really need a class of setting up my new cameo and especially
    doing text. I do a lot of personalized t shirts and would like this
    very much to have this info.

  18. Tori Tyler says:

    Good evening. I have the silhouette cameo 3 and have just registered today. I went to a store for a tutorial and when I came back home to set it home. The settings were somewhat different than theirs. When I press send to Silhouette, there are supposed to be a list of options regarding the type of cut, type of material as well as level of cut. That option is not given and as soon as I click the button, it immediately begins to cut and it has been unsuccessful. I have been trying for HOURS to view YouTube videos and I see where I am supposed to make the revisions but it does not allow me. PLEASE HELP!!!

    • Nikki says:

      Tori, what version of the software are you working with? I think you may have been using a different version at the store compared to what you have at home. Let me know, and hopefully I can walk you through it!

  19. Janie Lloyd says:

    Hi. I’m so glad I found this site. I just opened and set up my Cameo 3 and I am beyond overwhelmed! When I click on to your site to join your class, it says that v4 hasn’t been released yet. Is that just an old post? I’m pretty sure I have v4. (But like everything else about this experience, I am totally unsure!)

    • Nikki says:

      V4 has been released! At this point though, my class videos and PDF’s are still in V3. I’m slowly switching them all over and then will open enrollment again!

  20. Mary Anne Dunn says:

    How do I unzip the 2 fonts you suggested and get them on the cameo…also I chose the butterfly from the cameo free library and when i cut it only the top half cut? thanks!!

    • Nikki says:

      Mary Anne,
      After you install a new font on your computer, you just need to close your Silhouette software and then re-open it. The new font should be there!
      Have you tried moving that butterfly around? Is it always JUST the top half?

  21. Donna Candelario says:

    I purchased a cameo silhouette years ago And I’m finally taking it out of the box. I’m sure it’s outdatef but would like to learn at least the basics .. are you still offering classes? Would this machine be so outdated that it would not be worth even trying to learn something on this one. Not real computer literate.. I have no idea what I’m doing but definitely want to learn how to make t-shirts. ..
