If you are a Silhouette (or Circut!) user, the video below is a serious game changer.
Take a peek. I walk you through exactly how I edit my designs in my Silhouette Studio software to guarantee perfectly centered and straight placement on my signs.
Two things to note:
- I use the exact same shape and method for every design. It really is super simple.
- This can be used for more than just signs. Think designs inside a frame, decals on a wall, etc.
Game changed, right? You can thank me later.
Nikki, In Stitches
PS…As always, I use Oracal 631 for my stencils. If you need to stock up, you can use my affiliate link from Expressions Vinyl, here. I buy my vinyl from them in 5 yard rolls so I can paint this entire sign with one large stencil. (This post was published in February of 2018. If you’re reading then, the rolls I just mentioned are more than 20% off. Again, click here to stock up. Happy Shopping!!) Be sure you sign up for the rewards program if you haven’t already!

I love love this video. Please tell me what part of the Academy you still have going. I thought you said you closed it. I remember going through a withdrawal period when you closed.
I also need your help for something that should be simple but the pattern makes it difficult. I’m putting the waistband on a pleated shirt. You cut out the waistband and put interfacing. Then you cut the waistband (no interfacing) to use as a facing. Did…did. But now I’m lost
Jean! How did I miss this comment?!?!
How are you? I hope doing well! XOXO
