Silhouette Black Friday Deals + Winter Wonderland Project + Simply Link Party

I am super excited to team up with Silhouette America this year to offer my fabulous Simply Designing readers some amazing Black Friday Deals! With my code: DESIGNING of course :)

If you don't know what a "Silhouette" is let me tell is!  This little machine can cut vinyl, card-stock, paper etc into many different designs and letters!  There are no expensive cartridges, you can import files from their design store (only purchase what you want), use your own true type fonts to create your own image to cut, or (if you have the designer edition software) you can create your own files to cut!!  You can also create rhinestone designs, use sketch pens to add pattern and color and a myriad of other great things!  This machine is really amazing!  If you love crafting, DIY-ing or scrapbooking, the Silhouette is a MUST-HAVE item in my opinion!

I love my Silhouette Cameo, the Designer Edition Studio Software and all of their amazing design files in their store!  I create a lot of craft and DIY projects with my Silhouette!  But before I had a Silhouette, I always kept my eye out for a killer deal!  And this year, Silhouette America is offering some killer deals on their products to my readers!  (Wahoo!!!)

Silhouette Black Friday Deals!!  Cameo + Designer Edition Software (MSRP $349.98) Sale $229.99.  Silhouette Portrait (MSRP $199.99) Sale $179.99.  40% off other purchases (some exclusions apply).  - code: DESIGNING   Nov 23rd-30th 2012

Aren't these just AMAZING deals!?  Deal #1 with the Cameo and the Designer Edition Software is definitely what I would be BEGGING Santa for this year!!

Here is a fun little project I whipped up yesterday using the Silhouette:

For this project, I simply painted a scrap board I already had with cream spray paint and then I sanded the edges to distress it a bit.  I found this super cute Winter Wonderland file from the Silhouette store and knew it would be perfect.

I cut the stars and flourish out in silver vinyl and the verbiage in gold vinyl.  I layered the vinyl together and adhered them to the painted board.

I just love how this turned out and it was super quick to make too!  This is one of the many reasons I am in love with my Silhouette!!

You can see other projects I have created using the Silhouette here.

So if the Silhouette is on your Christmas / Hanukkah or Must-Have list, now is the time to buy it as they are offering great prices for this week only!
