Print and cut for the silhouette

Following on from the thread about the new machine

I thought that this youtube video was easy to understand:

Thank you Carolyn. I do wish they would show you the finished item on these videos. I find it so annoying that they don't.

Do you cut the shape and then stamp on it?
Do you print the picture and then cut it?

There is no indication what you do next. This is just the same on all the videos I have seen. No-one takes you through the next step.

To me the option would be to cut it out then stamp on it. Or do it as a print and cut - so you need to use the registration marks.

Or use a pen which is what I did on the bike, so you just cut the outline and then do the middle with a pen.

I have just tested my old pen holder from my old robo and it works fine in new machine - and have just used some fine point felt pen from Poundland and it worked a treat.

I thought mine came as standard before.
