Filling text in cricut design space using silhouette studio software

*silhouette studio business edition used.

** Note- you can use the free edition with this technique. Instead of saving as a SVG in silhouette studio, take a screenshot of the design and use a Jpeg to SVG converter online.

1- Open silhouette studio. Click on the text icon.

2- Type your text.

3- Change your font. I am using Luducudu font from fontbundles.net

4- Click on the sketch tool

5- Fill your text with a sketch effect.

6- Click on file and save to hard drive. It is at this point if you only have the free edition ,remove the grid from the mat area and take a screengrab of the design.(then use a SVG converter tool online)

7- Save as a SVG.

8- Open cricut design space. Click the upload icon.

9- Click on upload image.

10- click on browse.

11- Upload your design SVG. Save.

12- Select the design and insert it.

13-Your design will be a cut file.

14- Select the draw option. With the text selected, attach the text.

15- Click make it and continue.

16- Select the media and make sure the foil quill is inserted.

17- Set the dial to your media. I am using card stock.

18- Click go and your design will foil/

19- Your design is now foiled and filled. You can change the width between the lines of fill to make it a pattern or a full fill.
