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.

Before we get started, make sure you click here to enter my giveaway and to learn more about the huge Silhouette sale. I am giving away a Silhouette Portrait cutting machine. That’s right one of my lucky subscribers or followers will win their very own cutting machine. So don’t forget to enter!

Speaking of Silhouette giveaways, I thought it would be fun to talk about a few of my favorite Silhouette links. If you own a Silhouette cutting machine, you may be familiar with some of these links. If you are thinking about purchasing a Silhouette cutting machine and want to learn more, these links will provide you with more information.

For all things Silhouette, click here to visit Silhouette’s home page. You can also visit their amazing blog, their YouTube Channel, and their Facebook page and more. Speaking of more, click here to view their Pinterest page. I am so proud that my motivational advent calendar is pinned on their advent calendar Pinterest board. Yahoo!

To try out Silhouette’s free software, click here. You can play with the software but you will need to buy a machine if you want to cut the images. Trust me, you will love their products. I played with the software for about three weeks before deciding to buy my Cameo! Also check out their on-line store. Remember every Tuesday you can download a free file! I never miss a Tuesday file!

The first thing I did after buying my Cameo was to join this amazing Silhouette Plus message board. Everyone on this board is so helpful and I learned so much from all of them. They helped me with my questions and guided me to the most helpful posts. This is also a good place to visit if you are thinking about buying a machine. In fact, I visited this board before I brought my Cameo. Registration is simple, fast and free.

If you are a new Silhouette owner or want to learn more about the Silhouette, you can take a class from Kerri Bradford. I am pleased to say that I took all of her classes and highly recommend each and every one of them. Kerri is an excellent instructor and I learned tons!

I own the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software and I love it. It is on sale for $24.99 through March 8th. If you are interested in purchasing the Designer Edition click here and remember to use my promo code BOUTIQUE when checking out to receive the sale price. The Studio Designer Edition software allows me to import SVG Cuts and other SVG files which I love to do. SVG Cuts recently made a wonderful video on how to import their files using the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software. Click here to view the video.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

I would jump for joy if I won the Silhouette! I look forward to building relationships with people as we craft together in the town I've just moved to. What a GREAT bonus it would be to have this tool!!
