Videos, Videos

For a while I quit doing videos on the Silhouette/Cameo because the screen recording software I was using conflicted with a Mac OS update and every time I moved the mouse, the screen flashed. I checked a few months ago and it had been fixed…don't know if it was a Mac fix or a software fix. Now, I've found another screen recorder I really like. The one I was using had a maximum of five minutes and sometimes I just needed a few more seconds. The new one I'm using does not have a limit. I will admit there is a limit to how long I should be talking though!!!

When I first started doing YouTube instructional videos, no one else was doing them and there was a need for information. Now there are so many excellent YouTube tutorials I usually see no reason to do a video…but someone posted on YouTube asking me to do one on filling letters with patterns and making another color of border or outline…so I did that video tonight. I also did one last week on something but I am linking to the newest video here. If there is something specific you are having trouble with, post a comment and I'll see if I can figure it out and make a video.


  1. As usual, Margaret, your video was straight to the point, easy to follow and informative. It's so good to have you doing videos again! I'll look forward to the next one.

  2. Great video what do you use to record them.


    1. I used to use Screenr but now have found I like Screencast-o-matic.
