At the beginning of this month, a new version of the Silhouette Studio software was released. There were a number of issues with the program as released and on April 16th an update was released. The changes and fixes are extensive and I haven't had a chance to try everything yet. I will post more tips on the new version once I have spent more time with it.
You can download the updated version from the support page HERE and find the release notes detailing all of the changes for version 3.0.343 HERE.
The free shape of the week from Silhouette is this set of Easter Photo Props.
You will probably want to save an image of the set in a size large enough to see how all of the bits and pieces go together to make the various items. You will need to ungroup and regroup various shapes and also to add colors to get the proper look for your project. I have started to get spoiled by the fully assembled and colored images that you add to the Design Space work area when using the Cricut Explore - the plain red outlines in the Silhouette Studio look odd to me now.
There are also some daily free shapes available from the Silhouette Store. I am not sure how long these will be free or how many will be added. It is a good idea to just keep checking the Online Store for freebies. You can find the links posted on the Silhouette Facebook pages HERE if you are a Facebook user.
If you don't use Facebook, you can quickly find any free shapes by choosing "Browse All Designs" at the top of the page and then setting the Sort option "Price - Low to High" using the drop down menu.
I hope to have some time to sort through the changes but we will be busy with family for the holiday weekend. Have you dyed or decorated any Easter Eggs yet? Do you use hard-boiled eggs that you later make into salad or do you empty eggs before decorating them? I bought a new type of coloring kit that I haven't tried yet - maybe on Friday I'll have a chance...
