Confession; My first attempt with the Silhouette was a bust. I put the blade in upside down, couldn't get the vinyl to feed and this thing that looked so simple in all those YouTube videos was frustrating me!
So, how did I figure it out? Back to YouTube. :)
The white part of the blade with the numbers goes
"down." Move the sliders on the bar in so it can grab the vinyl to feed it. Connect to my computer and hit send to Silhouette. I'm trying to cut, "Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History."
Fail! What now? Still not cutting. It's grinding and moving but the cuts aren't there.
Oops! Change setting to "vinyl." Try again. Still not cutting.
Lesson learned? Patience, Grasshopper, Patience. And when in doubt, look it up on YouTube!
