I’m so excited today to be giving away one of my favorite crafting tools! A Silhouette Machine!
If you are not familiar with it, a Silhouette is a cutting device that hooks up to your computer and cuts images. There are 2 models available, the Portrait and the Cameo, you can see a comparison chart of the two machines here.
Some of my favorite features of the Silhouette are:
-You can resize your image to nearly any size. The files are scaleable- which means you can cut something once at 1″ then cut it again at 5″ and it looks just as good.
-You can cut out nearly every font on your computer!
-You can import other images you have into the software and cut them too! I’ve had great success importing *.png images from Rhonna Designs and cutting them out.
-You can cut paper, cardstock, freezer paper, vinyl, heat transfer material, FABRIC, chipboard and more! The freezer paper feature is especially great if you use freezer paper for quilting.
-Images in the Silhouette store are available individually! You only buy the ones you want to use, and most are only .99 cents. They also offer a free image download each week.
-You don’t have to be crafty or tech savvy to use this machine. It’s great for making t-shirts for kids sports teams and is perfect for school projects.
The Silhouette Portrait and Cameo come with everything you need to get started, the software is free, once you take it out of the box you’re ready to get going.
Just so you know, I have an affiliate relationship with Silhouette but I did not get my machine for free…. I bought it… and I’d buy it again.
Tomorrow I’m so excited to be sharing with you a fun Father’s Day craft using the Silhouette and their new Heat Transfer Starter Kit (which is the material that you cut out and iron onto fabrics). Silhouette is running a SALE now on the machines with the Heat Transfer Kit… it’s a great savings!
