The Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software will give you so much more freedom with your machine. My favorite feature of the Designer Edition software is the ability to cut SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) files. With the free software that comes with your machine, you can only cut images from Silhouette’s online store. With the upgraded software, you can find so many fun files on the internet. I have found many free SVG files to download or I purchase files from the many independent online stores that sell SVG files. I made this cute Lego Project Case with a Lego Minifigure-style SVG file, black and yellow vinyl sticker material, and an IRIS scrapbooking case from Michael’s. My oldest son loves themed Lego sets like Star Wars or Ninjago. Sometimes, he can’t finish a build in one sitting and so we will keep the pieces for his project in this case until he is finished with his project. This way, the pieces stay all in one place and don’t get mixed up with the rest of his Legos.
The Silhouette Cameo machine and the Silhouette Portrait machine are electronic cutting tools that uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl , vellum, and fabric. The Silhouette Portrait is smaller than the Silhouette Cameo machine, but it’s just as powerful. The Cameo can cut up to 12 inches wide and 10 feet long and the Portrait can cut up to 8 inches wide and up to 10 feet long. I received a the larger Cameo machine for my birthday last year and I am shocked how versatile it is. It can cut 3D items like party favor boxes, gift bags, cards, and so much more! The best feature of this machine is it’s ability to diecut printed items like tags or scrapbook diecuts. You can buy cutting files for just $.99 or less from the Silhouette online store or you can create your own files by using their software that comes with your machine. I love being able to buy just the images I want or need for my project. With the purchase of the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software, you can cut SVG files, create your own rhinestone templates, plus you can use the advanced editing tools for your everyday cuts. These sale prices will be offered February 28-March 10th, 2013.
