Jen shares, "I really, really love my Silhouette. And now that American Crafts has released some of their designs in the Silhouette store, I love it even more. I used the Dear Lizzy doilies on this layout and just separated the individual pieces to create my circles. I layered some Mixtape underneath and then placed the doilies on top and used my craft knife to cut the extra tape away. I love this look and will definitely be doing this again!"

Melanie says, "I have wanted a Silhouette for years and now that I’ve finally tried one (I borrowed this one from work) I think I really need one of my own :) I was able to get super clean, precise cuts with AC Cardstock. It’s really great when you want the look of something hand cut but don’t feel like spending time cutting with an exacto. I also love that I can adapt and customize all the designs (there are literally hundreds to choose from) to my specifications - super cool when you’re looking for just the right colour and size embellishment or title to match your project. My verdict? Love it!!!"
