And the Winner Is: Emily P.
Are you crafty? I try but am not always the best at creating the cutest things. What can I say sometimes I need a little help. That’s why I cannot even express how excited I was when I got the chance to review an absolutely amazing Silhouette machine. I know this post has a ton of pictures but honestly I have to tell you I held back quite a bit. The Silhouette really does help create so many amazing things really your imagination is the limit. What is the Silhouette?
The Silhouette is a digital cutting tool for personal use. It connects to your computer just like a printer, but instead of printing designs it cuts them with a small blade. With the machine connected to your computer, you’ll get access to all of the fonts on your PC plus the thousands of cuttable designs found on the Silhouette Online Store.
From incredible paper crafts, card making ( I have just recently got into this), scrapbooking, cute little cupcake wrappers below (I am making those for Kaia’s birthday party), to paper ornaments and more.
The Silhouette doesn’t only cut paper you can etch on paper as well creating gorgeous designs onto paper, for card making and more.
The Silhouette machine is not only for paper crafts though, You can create amazing etched glass crafts. Check out the TidyMom.net Etched Glass Tutorial. I love the Cute dish she creates I have also seen these on baking dishes and more just think you can have the cutest dish at the potluck and no mixing it up with anyone else’s especially when you design it yourself.
You can create gorgeous designs and personalize cheap frames and things from the 99 Cent store to make them look like something from Pottery Barn!
Now to Kaia’s absolute favorite thing the Silhouettemachine makes Temporary Tattoo’s! Yep, my little temporary tattoo addicted 3 year old has had her thirst for tattoo’s quenched. Plus she can pick out her own design and help me use the Silhouette to create her very own tattoo’s.
I used to love sewing. Kaia’s first year was spent in the cutest outfits ever most of which I had sewn and created myself. Sadly I don’t have the time for that anymore. I do however have the time to create adorable t-shirt designs for her and Mikey. She has been asking me for a Mermaid shirt well it was so easy peasy with the Silhouette machine. It was a matter of finding the right design Silhouette has tons of designs that are a s little as $0.99 for a download. It was so simple to create Kaia her very own unique mermaid shirt. You can also create rhinestone patterns for shirts, hats and shoes.
Next Vinyl there are so many fun vinyl designs out there and so much you can do with it. Vinyl is great because you can stick it to your car (I am sure you have seen the cute little family stickers on the back of minivans and SUV’s), you can decorate your walls, mirrors, doors, and more with it. From quotes to pictures you can do it all with a Silhouette machine. Best of all you are creating it so you can make it to the exact size and design you want it. Honestly think about how many crafting machines you can get rid of all you need is one Silhouette! Plus you don’t need any design cartridges just look online find what you want and work with it. It’s that simple!
