I’ve had my Silhouette Portrait electronic die cutting machine for a while now and I am in total love with it (you can read my Portrait review from back in November). I didn’t think it could get much better until I got the Designer Edition Software and now I’ve got even more creative possibilities!
The Designer Edition has several extra features like more knife and eraser functions, rulers, the ability to convert any shape into a sketch or rhinestone image, pivot point rotation and you can also easily import and cut other file types, like SVG’s.
Right now we are offering several great deals on the Silhouette Portrait, Cameo and Designer Edition Software to Craft Gossip readers. By using the promo code ” GOSSIP ” at Silhouette from now until March 8th (because of some website difficulties Silhouette has extended the promo until the 10th) you can get any of these wonderful offers:
(1) 1 Silhouette Portrait™ and the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition Software for $179.99
(2) 1 Silhouette CAMEO® and the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition Software for $269.99
(3) The Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition Software for $24.99
Now I’d like to share a couple of projects I made using the Designer Edition. One of my favorite functions is the sketch window, you can turn any die cut image into a sketch. I sketched this cute Silhouette bunny shape , printed him on cardstock and had the Silhouette die cut the egg shape around him and then colored with markers. I essentially was able to make a digital stamp from my die cut shape, how cool is that!?
I think my second favorite feature is the ability to import other file types. I found this free shamrock shape SVG file on the Internet and was able to open it, trace it and then cut it for the perfect backdrop for my little leprechaun stamp.
So if your interested in upgrading your Silhouette software or maybe getting a new Portrait or Cameo machine be sure to visit Silhouette and use our promo code: GOSSIP for some great savings!
