16 Delightful Silhouette Cutter Crafts......Seriously, This Thing Can Make Children

 Hello, lovelies. I hope you had a wonderful holiday with you & yours! Did Santa leave you anything fun under the tree this year? He did for me! I was relieved to see that Santa was a pretty forgiving man this year & was kind enough to scratch my name off the naughty list. Although, I'm quite sure my name just got moved to list C: The Grouchy But Sometimes Nice List. Sooooo, he left me a Silhouette Cameo

I've been wanting a Silhouette machine for eons & have spent the past few months trying to make my case to the hubby on why we needed one more thing to smoosh into our home office.  A very difficult task I may add when one has no clue what the heck a Silhouette machine even is! I didn't think my explanation that it was an electronic cutter was really helping my case. Great, so it cuts things......there's this other cool invention called "scissors".  Those can cut things too for a lot cheaper. But by time the the holiday shopping season was in full mode I was pretty sure I had the hubby convinced that the Silhouette machine could make ANYTHING! I may have even convinced him that that is where children come from.

Honestly, I'm a bit intimated by this machine. So, I decided to peruse the net to see all the wonderful things the Silhouette can create .....maybe find a little inspiration to give me a kick in the butt to start on my first project.

Awesome! Congrats on your new toy! I have a Cricut Expressions. I bought it after a LOT of convincing of the husband. Then I was so intimidated by it that I didn't use it for a whole YEAR! Needless to say, the hubs had LOTS to say about that. I have used it a couple of times since then, but not a lot. I'm hoping I can get into it more and more and more. Thanks for the inspiration!

Amazing! I need one of those too (hold on tightly to your baby maker, it might disappear soon lol!!) But seriously, I adore the monogrammed plate, I had no idea you could create so much awesomeness with your uterus!

You HAVE TO share pics (in 9 months time) of what you've created! I'm sure it will be cute!

Merry Christmas funny lady!

Nice gift! I actually got a Cricut and now that I heard about the difference between that and the Silhouette, I kinda want the Silhouette more. I like that you can connect to your computer with the Silhouette.

I'd love to hear from you!
