The cutting file I’ve made this week is an overlay based on an Irish Blessing. Perfect for St Patrick’s Day. The words aren’t all visible in the picture as they go around the jar a bit, so here ‘s the quote in full
“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.”
This will give you a better idea of how the file looks like:
I did my test cut with Contact Paper and attached the overlay to a jar. I filled it with some green water for the picture but I imagine it would be much, much nicer filled with treats – preferably wrapped in green for St Pat’s Day 😉

that is cute. Sweet treats in the jar would be tastier. Thanks for the Irish greeting
Ha Ha, I know Robyn 🙂 Trouble is, any sweet treats in this house get eaten by me! I didn’t want the temptation LOL!

Hi, Pam. I am a newbie to Silhouette and cutting files. I love what you create and hope to try some of them. BTW, can I import these Studio files into my software and store them in folders in my library? Can I store SVG files as well? Not sure about all this fun stuff. kReN
All the files I give away are in Silhouette Studio Format. After you download them from Dropbox your computer may ask you what program you’d like to open them with. Just select Silhouette Studio.
Once you have the file open in Studio Click on File > Save As > and > Save to Library. Then it will be in the library with all the Silhouette Free Files and your Purchased files from the silhouette store.
I like to save Files like this on my hard Drive instead ( you can do both though). Reason being is that if you have a computer crash, Silhouette will restore your purchased files from their shop but not the files you added yourself. To back up to your computer – do this: click File> Save As> then from the options >Save as (again) and a box will appear – you can then select where you wish to save the file on your computer. I have a folder specifically for my Slhouette Files.
I haven’t tried it with SVG files. I think you may have to open them in the Studio Software, and re save them as studio files to get them to your Library but I’m not sure. I just save any SVG in a folder on my computer.
Hope this helps 🙂
