The Silhouette shouldn’t be foreign to you by now- we’ve given them away before and you guys keep asking for more, so here you go!
Are you noticing something different in that picture? Just this month, Silhouette launched a brand new machine. They still have the awesome CAMEO:
But now there’s another option for those of you interested in something a little smaller, the Silhouette Portrait:
Just like the image says, the new Portrait is a little smaller in price and size, but still makes all the amazing things the CAMEO does. You can see a comparison of the two machines by clicking here.
Both machines connect to your computer, where you can design graphics, images, text, and more, and the the machine itself actually cuts those things with a tiny blade. Obviously it cuts paper for cards, scrapbooking, and papercrafts:
and vinyl, for home decor and crafts:
But what I’m loving even more these days is all of the unique things I didn’t even realize my Silhouette could do at first! They can cut fabric (how cute is this??)
and all sorts of other materials for fun and unique projects for your home and family.
Silhouette always has adorable advent calendar ideas, I love this one:
And one of my favorite uses for my own machine has been the Sketch Pens. Silhouette makes colorful little pens that you can use in place of the blade so it actually draws the designs instead of cutting them.
