silhouette sd machine


Meet my Silhouette.
We've been together now since Christmas.
I LOVE it!

If you aren't familiar with a Silhouette, it's a digital cutting tool similar to a Cricut. It connects to your computer just like a printer, but instead of printing designs it cuts them with a small blade.

There are many options with the Silhouette. (pics from Silhouette's website)

making cards
scrapbook pages
etched glass (i LOVE this!)
temporary tattoos

vinyl decor (my personal favorite)
I've played around with it some and these are my creations, thus far.
I did try to make a card. It turned out awful. But I attribute it to the adhesive I used that HAD to be almost 5 years old.

Here are my canisters I dressed up this morning. I'm going to add "candy" or "treats" to the one with M&M's...I just couldn't make up my mind when I printed the others out.

Maroon Weekly has moved into a new office, so I got to dress up the door and Chris' desk.

Here is the yoshi/baby mario I made for Chris' NEW macbook pro!

I've gotten several custom orders laptop vinyl saying/logos. I'm going to do mine too, but I haven't decided for sure what word or phrase I want it to say. I also have some super ideas of stuff I want to make and give as gifts.

I just put in an order for some more vinyl in a bunch of different colors!!!
I even ordered some heat transfer vinyl that can go on clothes/fabric.

It's exciting (and a little overwhelming) all the awesome stuff the silhouette can do.

If you have any requests for a vinyl cut, let me know! I'm sure we can work out something. ;)
