Thank you ScrapGirls and Silhouette. I received my gift and need to learn how to use it. I am hoping to make cards with it. I bought a stack of cards today and all were $3.99 and $4.99 each. Yikes!

Thanks again,

It sounds exciting... and certainly better than spending a fortune on those cards!

I recommend looking on the Silhouette blog and website, Pinterest and Youtube for tutorials! That's where I learned how to use mine!

I love my silhouette! I don't use it nearly often enough, but it always does a great job when I do! If you have any questions once you get started, just ask away. There's a few people around here with experience and knowledge that can usually answer questions and make recommendations. I know I relied on the knowledge of others a lot when I first got mine!

I haven't had a moment of free time to play around with my silhouette but hope to get to find some time in the coming weeks!  Everyone says it's so much fun and I'm excited to see what I can do with mine!

I did!  I did!  Just haven't had time to play with it with Daddy's illness and death but I'll get around to it one of these days!  I might have to pick your brain for help!

Love my silhouette too!  I designed some cards last night.  I have the papers printed to cut today.  :)  I have an idea for another similar card.  Might work on it today too!  Can't wait to see what you create Jean!

I'm sorry to say mine is still in the box! It's been a tough year. :)

Sorry you have had a rough year Jean!!  Maybe you will have time soon to play with your silhouette.  I know you will love it.  Mine has been in the cabinet for many many months...no time to play lately!

I'm sorry to hear that you had a tough year. I hope things are looking up. I bought my silhouette in March and didn't take it out of the box till about a month ago. I used it for some letters for my grandson's school project. I worked great and is so simple. Since then I haven't used it although there have been times that I wanted to. I just didn't want to go through the hassle of getting it out of the box. I know I would use it more if it was accessible. So right now I am looking for a stand for it so it can be out all the time. It came with a dust cover so I'll be all set. I really love it.
