What Do You Love About Your Silhouette?

Hi Everyone -
So the question is "What do you love about your silhouette?" Don't worry, I don't mean your personal, physical silhouette. Me, I have a love/hate relationship with that silhouette. The silhouette I am referring to is the Silhouette Cameo. I find it is much easier to love!

Looking around the January crop, I noticed how many of us were actively using our personal die cut machines. Since last Fall, several of you have purchased the Silhouette Cameo. For some, they may be still in the box. Others have taken a look at their machine and done a few cuts. Some of you have not stopped learning about your new machine since you first got it out. I loved seeing all the experimentation and sharing of ideas and information at the crop between our crafting group! Many Cameo owners also have Cricut machines as well. Whether you love your Cricut, your Cameo, or both, it is undeniable that the world of paper crafting has changed dramatically with the addition of personal die cutting machines. 

We know these machines can do so much. Whether it is a Cameo, Cricut, or some other die-cutting machine, tell us what you love about your machine. Comment below to tell us the following:

  • What is your number one, absolute, favorite thing you can do with your machine?

  • What is one thing you would like to know about or do with your machine that you have not yet done and/or mastered?

Also, if you have not looked at the SHEA Calendar recently, Ivy has added some fantastic Silhouette classes on Saturday, February 11th  to help you learn about all the marvelous tools and features of your Cameo! If you do not yet have a Silhouette, and want to learn more, give Ivy a call. She loves (I mean LOVES) her Silhouette Cameo, and is a great source of information if you are trying to decide which die-cutting machine will work best for your needs.

Happy New Year!

Oh My! I let the hustle & bustle of the Holidays take over! I didn't realize how much time has actually passed since I last posted.  I once again apologize, but I know you all understand.  I thank you for that :-).  With that being said...My holidays were absolutely wonderfully blessed!  I enjoyed my family and friends so much!!!  I hope all of yours were just as wonderful!

There is so much to update...where do I begin???  Since the release of the newest edition to the Silhouette family, the Silhouette CAMEO, we have played more than ever!!!  I'm not sure if it is possible to be in love with an inanimate object, but if it is...I'M HOOKED!  We sell out of them before I can get the shipment back in each time!  The possibilities with this machine are limitless.  You all know how I am with cost...lowest price...highest quality...and YES- they deliver!!!  If you haven't seen this little baby in action, swing by the shop! I'm ALWAYS happy to show my girl off!!! :-)  You will be AMAZED at the possibilities!  We also have classes and FREE crops! Check out their blog and Pintrest pages to see some of the awesome projects people round the globe are creating!

Not only did we add the Silhouette CAMEO and an entire line of Silhouette products to our current inventory, I also brought in the Letraset PROMARKERS!  These are absolutely FABULOUS!  These are alcohol based markers similar to Copic markers.  These markers pack a powerful punch at a more than reasonable price! Come check out some of the things we're doing with them!  You don't have to be a graphic artist to use them either.  We have a class on them a little later this month! Come join us for some fun!

My Mind's Eye Kraft Fun Day & Love Me are currently in stock and AVAILABLE! 

As many of you may be aware, CHA is right around the corner and YES - I've already started placing pre-orders!  I'll update more soon! ;-)
