OK, you purchased your Cameo or maybe not yet, but you have Silhouette Studio installed on your computer, and you want to get more free files from Silhouette. The first question is: What version of the software do you have?  In order to check the software version, open Silhouette Studio, click on Help, then click on About Silhouette Studio. You should have Version 2/2.0.

If not, then you need to update your version from here:


The second question is: When did you download the software? If you downloaded the recent version of the software and would like to retrieve the free files that were available before, then try this: Go to the online Silhouette store and in the search box type: 50.

This will bring up three pages that include the original designs. Add them to your Cart and Download them.

Now, if you have had the software installed for some time, you may already have these original designs and want to add the new ones available. To do this, click on File, Preferences, Advanced, Restore the initial 51 and these designs will be added to your Library automatically; you don’t have to download anything.

I hope these tips help you to get more of the free shapes in the Silhouette online store.

If you’d like to get the Cameo, visit HERE and look at which of the options is right for you.

Bye for now,
