Silhouette GIVEAWAY + Designer Software promo

Happy {giveaway} Thursday! I’m excited to share my latest St. Patrick’s Day craft and announce another Silhouette Giveaway! Plus info on Silhouette’s latest promotion…. Designer Edition Software! This is one of their most popular promotions! Are you ready for a fun day? Here we go!

St. Patrick’s Day Owl Craft

owl craft

Who’s lucky?! I whipped up the CUTEST little owl pillow boxes for St. Patrick’s Day. I used my Silhouette CAMEO with the Designer Software. I filled the little boxes with chocolate gold nuggets. The little shamrock tag says, “Who’s lucky?”. These are for my son’s preschool class, but they would be great for family, friends, or anyone! They are sure to brighten anyone’s day!

They turned out so stinkin adorable! I love them! I love how the shape of the pillow box works so perfectly for a little owl.

I used my Silhouette CAMEO, Designer Edition software, Silhouette shapes #33498 and #37779, and the sketch pens to make the little owl boxes.

*Don’t have a die cutter? Here’s a Free Printable to help make these owl boxes!

Silhouette Discount: Designer Edition Promotion

Silhouette’s promotion this month highlights their Designer Software. There are some key differences between the Basic software and the Designer Edition software.

Some of the differences include:

  • guides
  • more knife options
  • shear window
  • more eraser options
  • rulers
  • rhinestone window
  • sketch window
  • eyedropper
  • pivot point rotation
  • SVG file compatible

It also supports SVG files. That way you can use all those free SVG files you find on the web! I think it is a lot easier to design my own shapes with the Designer Software.

Here’s a great video by Silhouette on differences between the softwares. Note: The Cameo and Portrait come with the Basic Silhouette Studio software. The Designer Software is an upgrade.

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I would probably use it most for scrapbooking titles etc.

    I would cut mostly paper but vinyl would be a close second :)

  3. 553

    Fabric!

    I’d cut paper things–I just bought some glass caboches & want to be able to use paper to personalize them in some way! This would work so well!

    Stacey

    I’ve been wanting to try the rhinestones….how fun!!!

    Nicole J.

    I would make so many things with this! Anything I usually have to hand cut, this would make those so much easier! SO great!

    I’d cut vinyl

    What wouldn’t I cut with it would be an easier question. I have sooo many projects in mind that I’ve started on my 11th notebook. I think I’d start with paper and make my mom a beautiful paper flower bouquet for Mother’s Day.

  9. 559

    I would cut vinyl and paper and fabric and so many other things to make magical creations! :o)

  10. 560

    I would love to win a silhouette. Hope I get lucky this time.

    I would probably start off with cutting paper and then try vinyl since my craft area walls are bare of inspiration. Then I would move onto all the other mediums Silhouette offered, that I have drooled over since finding the machine over a year ago -rhinestones, magnet, fabric.. oh the list! ;)

    I’d make stuff firmly classroom :)

    I would cut vinyl…for everything!! I hope I win!

    I would love to win the portrait. I have a Cameo, but most of the time do not need the 12×12 surface. I think the smaller format would be great and take up much less space in my craft room.

    I LOVE this! My friend has one, and uses it for EVERYTHING ! So… I’d use it to cut vinyl, and all the scrapbooking stuff, and stuff I use for my Girl Scout troop and she’d be happy to cut out the cutting for me ! :)

    I would use it most for Project Life.

    So many things I want to cut but first it would be vinyl.

  20. 570

    I’m not sure what I would cut most but the first thing would definitely be business cards. :)

    I have so many plans for a Silhouette! I love putting scripture on my walls! So .. first of vinyl! My daughter is a 4H-er, so she’ll be using it a lot for presentation posters and cardmaking! Then, of course, I have a million labels to cut and cards to make and scrapbooks to do! So much fun would be had by this craft-loving family! Thanks for the giveaway opp!
