Congratulations to lucky number #274 Aimee Jongejan!
Aimee, I’ve sent you an email!
For the rest of you…stay tuned. I will be posting details for the Black Friday Silhouette deal in a new post very soon. For those of you already mapping out your shopping strategy, I’ll tell you that Silhouette is offering a 30% discount on the entire store starting on Black Friday, and with a special OBB code you can get another 10% on top of that. So yes- you can snag a Cameo for 40% off! They will however sell out; there are limited quantities, so think about it and if you want one, be ready to pull the trigger! All the deets are coming soon!
If you’re not familiar with Silhouette, it’s a digital craft cutter. It’s sort of like a computer printer, but instead of having ink, it has a blade, so it actually cuts out designs.
Using the Silhouette software on your computer, you can design just about anything you want. The machine itself comes with a library of 50 exclusive digital designs, and you can purchase from a huge library online. One thing I love is that there are no cartridges, like some other craft cutters use, everything is online and it’s so quick and easy to get shapes, fonts, and projects. It’s literally about 1 click and it’s ready to go. It also cuts any custom font that is in your computer already.
You might remember last year when we gave away a Silhouette SD. So what’s so great about the Cameo? It’s bigger and better folks! The new Cameo cuts paper up to 12 inches wide and up to ten feet long. Let me show you some things you can do with it.
It’s a scrapbooker’s dream, obviously
But you can do so much more with paper. One of my favorite things to do with my Silhouette is make 3-D designs, like these little goodie containers. These literally took less than 10 minutes to whip up!
And I love these advent calendars that have been popping up on craft blogs
And foodie fun galore…
The machine can also cut heat transfer material, and make rhinestone templates so you can embellish clothing and accessories
Then I stole Ashley’s idea and made shirts for my kiddos
You can also create stencils and use fabric paint. I love this valentine bunting from Crap I’ve Made.
The options are endless when it comes to vinyl. I’ve done a lot of projects at home with vinyl and I love it for little things, like labeling
You can put it right on your walls (and easily remove it too)
And you can even replace the cutting blade with pens and have it draw these cool designs. I make a lot of cards this way, it makes me look super artistic! (The black floral design is actually drawn on with pen)
