I'm excited to share with you my experience taking Kerri Bradford's new online Silhouette Class, available at Jessica Sprague.
The class begins with a tour of the general layout of the Silhouette Studio Software. Kerri does an excellent job explaining the function of each section of the basic tools and keyboard short cuts. She makes sure to translates all her instructions to the SD model as well as the Cameo, so owners of older models will really appreciate that. The instruction in the first section is very basic and brand new owners will feel very comfortable getting to know their machine, as the title says.
After the basic tour, Kerri continues with a library tour, she includes a review of subscription plans. In task 3, you learn to import other files and she reviews how to organize them in "your own way".
Lesson 2 covers the basics of drawing, moving and scaling designs and she encourages people to take basic shapes and combine them into new shapes and to use them creatively. She also covers align, replicate and weld tools. Lesson 3 covers among other things, the very popular text to path feature and Kerri makes it simple to understand with her easy demonstrations. She reviews altering texts in a number of different ways, including creating a bold font from a standard font. Lesson 4 covers preferences and in lesson 5 it all comes together with a nicely detailed mini book project.
I really enjoyed the class and although I am a more advanced user, I found it enjoyable to see how Kerri uses the software and how she approaches her designs and most importantly, I learned a few new things too! I highly recommend this class for any new Silhouette users and I believe many who have had their machine a while would benefit as well.
