Silhouette | Did Santa Bring You A Silhouette – Or Not? [Promo]

Did Santa bring you the Silhouette machine you wanted? If he did – welcome to the Silhouette family!

If he didn’t, Silhouette is offering a great deal starting today so you can play Santa yourself! The surest way to get what you want is to buy it yourself, right?

From today through January 2nd, if you click here and use our promo code “UPDATE“, you can get the following deals at the Silhouette Online store:

1)      1 Silhouette CAMEO® and 1 vinyl starter kit for $269.99

2)      1 Silhouette Portrait™ and 1 vinyl starter kit for $129.99

3)      Vinyl starter kits for 25% off

4)      25% off vinyl/transfer paper

I’ll have a project up soon with the vinyl in action, but in the meantime, to see projects I’ve done previously with the vinyl, see what I did to my car and my daughter’s room with it!

Tips for New Silhouette Owners

If Santa did bring you a Silhouette machine, I suggest that you get started by:

1) Signing up for a Silhouette Online Store subscription! It makes it so much more affordable to download all the shapes you want!

2) Stocking up on an extra mat & blade so you are never caught without one.

3) Buying Silhouette Studio [Designer Edition] software to increase the usability of your machine.

4) Choosing one non-paper medium to try working with, like vinyl or iron-on material.

That will give you a great “playground” to get started in while you learn your machine and all of its capabilities.

For fun, I recommend for your first cut finding a design that is extremely complex, such as a doily design, and cutting it. You’ll be amazed what the machine is capable of (if it is set properly, so be sure to follow instructions carefully).

Don’t forget, if you are shopping at the Silhouette store this weekend, to click here and use our promo code “UPDATE” to get the deals listed above (and support Scrapbook Update, too!)

    Thanks so much for sharing! This is really a wonderful sale! I already own a Silhouette and the Silhouette Software mentioned in #3 is actually free! What I’ve done is purchase Designer Edition so that I’m able to use SVG files easily, which is a wonderful feature!

    Have a great day!

      Whoops, too much holiday goodies has clogged my brain…I meant to say the Designer Edition. Dope.

    I am happy to say that I became a new Portrait owner on Black Friday, when you originally shared with us this great deal. I didn’t open my prize till Christmas, so have only been playing with it for 2 days. I am so in love with it already. You are one of the main reasons I got it- I’ve been following all your posts and have wanted one of these babies for the past year. So it was a very Merry Christmas for me. Happy new year Nancy!

    I got the cameo & I’ve been on the fence about signing up for a monthly thing – I’ll have to look at that option again.

    Katie, If you do much cutting you absolutely cannot go wrong with a subscription. I have the 14.99 a mo and you get 50 shapes a month that makes a .99 shape like $.30. I thought at first I would never use 50 shapes a month. Wrong. I have close to 200 is in wish list right now just waiting. So much fun.
    There is a 20% off sale right now on the subscriptions. Check it out!!
