News from the Design Team

Hello Janet here,

I'm pleased to have this opportunity to post on behalf of the Silhouette UK Design Team today. Since we all joined the Team back in March we have, between us, posted nearly 200 project and tutorials. We love to share our projects and to hear from you, our readers. We do take your comments and suggestions on board and they help us ensure that we are making the projects you want to make, using the products you want to try and covering the topics that you want to read about.

I love reading through the posts and have found them really informative and inspiring so I'm very pleased to be able to bring you a selection of my favourites from the past month or so.

From my own posts, I've included my post on looking after your Silhouette mat.

Looking after your Silhouette Mat

You'll notice that some of the posts are informative rather than project based. We've included this type of post because you asked for them. There are more on the way covering subjects such as, blades, SVG files and the various Silhouette software tools, so do look out for them. Please let us know in the comments if there is any another topic you'd like us to cover - between us we have more than two decades of Silhouette experience!

Now, just in case you had forgotten who we are, here are our lovely mug shots with links to our profiles.
