Silhouette Studio Video Tutorial: How to make a coloring page or digital stamp with an SVG

Many folks make cuttable files (e.g. SVG) by tracing images from coloring pages but what if you want to do it the other way around? Can you make a coloring page from an SVG?

Of course you can! Let me show you how to do just that in today's video tutorial. You will need the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition because the free Silhouette Studio program that comes with your Silhouette machine cannot open SVG files.

In the tutorial, I used Silhouette Studio version 2.8.16d. If you are using version 3.0.293 or version 3.0.343, the SVG image is automatically Ungrouped once it is imported into the program. In that case, please GROUP the image before proceeding with Step 3 of the tutorial.

You can use today's tutorial to make coloring pages for the kiddos (Teachers, take note!) or make digital stamps to color in with your favorite Copics markers. You can even make cards and other paper goods! Be creative and let your imagination go crazy with all the things you can design with a non-colored image.

The YouTube video can be found at this link: Don't forget to set it to play at High Definition and for better viewing, you may want to play the video at Full Screen.

  1. I've done this using MTC, but it looks much easier in SSDE!

    1. Interesting! I haven't done this with MTC yet but I thought that the process is similar. I'll have to give it a try. :)

  2. absolutely LOVE IT! AWESOME idea! Jin, you never fail =) I've learned everything from you!
