Silhouette Promotion

It's time for another Silhouette Promotion!!  Did you recently get your tax return?  Now is the time to use that extra money and get my favorite crafting tool!

This month you can get the CAMEO and the new Designer edition software (a $50 value) for $269.99!  Use code SIMPLE at checkout!  That is an awesome deal!!!!  Go here to buy it!
Already have a CAMEO, you can get the software for 50% off!!! 

You know how much I love my CAMEO.  I seriously use it at least once a week, even more than that.  I just love it!!  There is so much to do with it and with this designer software, there is even more that you can do!!

Here are the extra options that you can do with the designer software:
  • Ability to open, manipulate, and cut .svg files
  • Rhinestone tools to convert designs into rhinestone templates and create your own rhinestone designs
  • Sketch tools to convert designs into several styles of sketchable art
  • Creative knife tools to allow you to clip designs using different patterns
  • Enhanced eraser set to modify designs with more precision
  • Built-in ruler and guide lines for precise alignment and drawing

I love the rhinestones and I had to try out the new feature to convert any image to rhinestones!
This is how I made it:
1) I took a butterfly image
2) I then ungrouped it (CTRL+U) and deleted the inside of it.
3) I went to the rhinestone page and clicked on the edge button.  Then I used the 16ss sized rhinestones.
4) I didn't like the antenna, so I clicked on the release rhinestones button and rearranged them a little bit.  
5) I wanted a little tail, so I used the draw freehand and made it.  
6) I cut out the image.  I used the blade setting of 3 and thickness of 33.  

7) I peeled the blue paper off and put it on the backer board.  Then I placed the rhinestones into the holes.  
8) Using the transfer paper, I moved the rhinestones to my shirt.  
9) On the wool setting, I ironed the rhinestones on.  I turned the shirt inside out and ironed the inside to set the glue.  
And that's it, super easy!!!

This is a super fun feature, I'm super excited to used some of my favorite fonts and turn them into rhinestones!!

Remember you can get the CAMEO and the designer software for only $269.99, a $350 value!!  Just use code SIMPLE at checkout!  Go here to buy it!!
