Merging two of my favorite things today, word art and seamless patterns, to bring you a nice set of freebies for your holiday projects. Silhouette users can drag and drop these patterns directly into a shape just like any other image, or place them in the Library. If you need a refresher on using seamless tiles in Silhouette Studio, see this video. Those of you that have the Effects feature in Silhouette Studio v3 (all Mac users and Windows users with a compatible graphics card) can change the color of the tiles to get just about any color you need.
A note to Cricut users: I originally made these for Design Space’s new pattern fill feature, but, unfortunately, a bug leaves a thin white gap both on screen and in print so that seamless tiles do not function, well, seamlessly. Please let Cricut Customer Care (support@Cricut.com) know that you would like this bug fixed. In the meantime, you can use the 12 x 12 versions, which my digiscrapper friends may also find useful. In Design Space, be sure to upload these files using the Pattern button.
For the advanced Silhouette users, I also made a couple of transparent tiles. Right click and “save image as …” to download these. For details on how to use these, see this video.
And if you want some more graphics and fonts for your holiday projects, check out the great bundle that I detailed in my last post!
