Fab Five Friday

Welcome to Fab Five Friday! For those of you that are new to this blog, every Friday I showcase five blogs, websites or posts that I think you will enjoy.

I am so excited to announce the newest Silhouette machine, the Portrait. I jumped for joy when I received the email announcing their newest machine. As you know, I love my Cameo and had to share this information with all of you!

Here is the info directly from Silhouette. The Portrait is a smaller, lighter version of the popular Silhouette CAMEO®. But, while it is smaller in size, the Portrait is feature-rich.

The Silhouette Portrait™ has the same motor and cutting mechanism as the CAMEO, yet the entire unit weighs only 3.5 pounds. The Portrait can cut all the same types of materials that the CAMEO can (including all Silhouette branded materials) and includes a cutting mat that will accept Letter (8.5 in x 11 in) and A4 sized sheet goods. Like the CAMEO, the Portrait has an optical scanner so it can be used with a home printer to create print & cut projects. Of course, the Portrait also includes our powerful Silhouette Studio® software—allowing users to create their own designs and cut the fonts already installed on their computers.

Perhaps the most appealing feature of the new Silhouette Portrait™ is the low cost. With an MSRP of just $199.99, the Portrait will appeal to individuals who want a quality electronic cutting tool at an amazing price.

Now for more good news. I was among a fortunate group of bloggers that was sent a huge box of Martha Stewart goodies to work with and I will be posting some of my projects in the very near future, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, I am proud to announce that Martha Stewart has launched a new craft board on Pinterest and you are going to love it. She has lots planned for this new board so be sure to check it out. In the future you might even see one of my projects there. Yahoo!!

If you love beautiful cards check out Lucy’s Cards. Her cards are amazing! I love her Halloween ones.

I am always looking for new ways to make ornaments and jumped for joy when I found the Ornament Girl’s blog. I promise you will leave inspired. I love the Halloween ornament!

For another amazing blog, check out Mossy Made. Chari is an extremely talented blogger and her cards are adorable. I love her classic style!

Have a fun Fab Five Friday and please stop back on Sunday for Simply Organized Sunday (SOS).

Linda, thanks for this post. I am a cricut fan but I would love to get into SVG's so I was thinking about this machine and the original one. I now know that this would be my choice. Now time to put it on my wish list:)

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!
