I took the plunge a few weeks ago and sold my other e-cutter machine replacing it with a Silhouette e-cutter. I’m no expert, and I get no kick back from Silhouette for endorsing their product but I have to say, I’m in love. All the things I wasn’t happy with on my old e-cutter, Silhouette has addressed. It’s so easy to use and get started. There are tons of videos out on You Tube for how to use it, but best of all, you can use it in conjunction with the Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio – MDS, merging projects from MDS to be cut out with the e-cutter. Awesome. Crafting just took a giant step up in my house.
‘S’ is also for Sydney, my niece, who is turning 6. I thought she might get a kick out of having her initial on display in her room. This project is a straight up Silhouette project. I purchased the e-cutter file from the Silhouette on-line store for $0.99. Very reasonable prices I think on their cut files.
The box and letters were cut with the Silhouette. I used Stampin’ Up! punches to create the flower and of course Stampin’ Up! paper, choosing several shades of purple including the new Blackberry Bliss.
My next project I’ll be merging a file from MDS with Silhouette. This way, you can print something, like a name or phrase, inside a punch or frame-lit shape and the Silhouette will cut it out perfectly for you. I’ve often stressed over getting unique shapes cut especially with printing inside, and being perfectly straight. No more stressing for me.
