Okay folks....I am going to sticky note this post to keep it up at the top.....but please, post some topics you would like us to see do a chat tutorial about. Our first scheduled chat tutorial went really well and I'd like to keep doing them....so share what you'd like to have a tutorial about.

I also would like to have people volunteer to DO the actual tutorials....so let me know if you can do that also. I would ask that you type up a word document of your tutorial ahead of time, and send me a copy of it please so that I can post it in a downloadable document after the live chat tutorial. It really helps to have your word document open, and just copy and paste step by step from your directions into the chat window.....saves retyping everything!

If you, as a volunteer, do the initial chat tutorial, I could present it again at different times slots if need be. But helping to have the document available for download really helps those who couldn't be in on the live chat. Denise so kindly put the last tutorial into video....so that is an option also if others want to do that.

Hit this post up with ideas and/or volunteer your talents....please!

I think making an svg from a photo would be good also. I have tried and don't seem to be able to get it very good. Hope someone who is good at it would be willing to teach the rest of us.

Just to let you know....we have a couple other ideas in the works too for topics: text in a circle, and font managers. Please keep the ideas coming and we'll try to put things together!

Text in a circle would be great-still cant get the hang of it! I know some are confused about how to cut an image in SCAL that has so many different colors and then layering them up on the application of say vinyl.

Someone also reminded me in another post....I shared my "how to" on using registration marks to cut large projects....but perhaps we could put together a photo or video tutorial to go along with that.

A couple recent suggestions were: Path functions in SCAL2, and making your own embossing folders.

I am working on a line up for March tutorials, so please post here if there is something specific you'd like to see!
