Troubleshooting Weird Errors and Corrupt Files in Silhouette, Cricut and CorelDRAW

 

First things first, don't panic! These things happen. I've discussed this with multiple designers and, unfortunately, from time to time our poor little files get beat up on their way from the download server to your software. 99% of the time it's an easy fix - so breath and let's figure out what's happening.

Sometimes an offset just completes a design, but they can look a little daunting.

 

You can totally do this in five steps - less if you don't need the gap. (That little gap is so handy when you want a glitter offset so we'll look at both.)

Vinyl is awesome, but what if you want a vinyl or paper project with all the pretty variations and colors? Print Then Cut is your answer, my friend. 

 

Today we'll be working with planner stickers, but you can apply this method for so many projects - printable vinyl, cards, scrap booking and more. 

 

You can bend those names and words to your will. All you need is a shape and a little know how. The Cricut software can be a little limiting though, so we're going to look at two ways to get what you want. Let's get you started!

Die cutting machines (those nifty things you that allow you to cut through vinyl like butter) are becoming more and more popular. 

 

Today I am going to cover cutting with one of the top two - the Cricut Explore Air.  It's easy to get (most Walmart stores carry them) and is more flexible since the addition of Cricut Design Space.  It allows you to purchase designs like mine and open them on your machine - leaving you limitless in possibilities.
