Start to Finish
« on: August 21, 2010, 06:21:51 AM »
Hi I only joined your forum today which is very good I might add. I am a complete beginner to inkscape.  Is there a tutorial on here that will show me a card from beginning to end.  I am struggling at first base on how to draw my card and put a line down the middle etc.. Sorry if i have put this on the wrong thread.  Thanks  Jane x

Welcome to the forum Jane, it would be really helpful if you could put your PC version ie: Windows or Mac and then what cutter you have and also what software you use; include this info in your profile signature so that everytime you post a query the best people can come along and offer you help. I think you can do this all on your profile page..

Hello Jane.  Welcome.  I am not sure if there are tutorials uploaded here yet but on some of the blogs of members (those with a www. address alongside their name on the membership list) you will find help.  Carolyn, also has some videos on her blog spot here:-

http://www.youtube.com/user/cuttingtimes

Choose Videos from the headings and you will see a list of them on the righthand side.  If you scroll down the list you will find some simple exercises but Carolyn's videos are very clear and even if you have never used Inkscape before I am sure you will understand them.  Until we find a basic tutorial for you you will be really helped by these videos.

Welcome Jane,  you have hit on the right forum.  There are so many knowledgeable people here that are so creative, you will be creating master pieces in no time.  One of the best ways to start is the video or tutorial on welding letters or words.  It give you a basic idea of how some things work.  And always feel free to ask questions,  when I first started I felt like I was learning a foreign language.  It was all greek to me.

Jayne,

Most of the tutorials teach how to use a particular function in Inkscape.  You do those tutorials and then you build your own creations using the different tools based on what you've learned so far.  Inkscape is so full of ways to create that it is hard to point you in the right direction.  So many different card themes.  If you have a picture of what your card might look like someone can do a quick video for you.  I know you are an SCAL user as I am so I'm here to help.

I have one or two video's that teach you how to "draw" shapes and things that might get you started.

Thanks you all of you. Have checked out some of your videos Susan and they are helpful as everybodys seem to be and I shall work through them slowly.
I have a Robo and working on windows 7 with inkscape. I have Design Master which seems easier to use but I would like to design on inkscape becase i know it can do a lot more.  
Thanks
Jane

Hi Jane

Don't forget to look at the Silhouette/Craft Robo section on the main board for other helpful settings like the Inkscape cutting area etc.....and remember if you get stuck or require additional help then we are here to help......
