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.
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.
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?
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
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.

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 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
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.
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,
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
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
