Time to share six more Sensational Silhouette Sites! You may remember that I shared six of my favourite Sensational Silhouette Sites earlier, but I actually have more than six favourites, so today I want to shout out more of my favourite “go to” Silhouette Sites!
You may already know of and visit these websites, but if you haven’t discovered them yet, they are well worth a visit… Explore each site to discover the Silhouette gems that they’ll all reveal.
Once again, In no particular order because I love them all…..
In the US: Many of you are hobbyists like me, but more and more Silhouette owners these days are creating small businesses or generating income from selling products produced with the help of their Silhouette machines. If that sounds like you, you really need to check out Christine’s Site. It’s an absolute treasure trove of information on a huge variety of business matters ranging from “must know” info on copyright issues to helpful Vinyl application Instructions which you can print out and send to clients along with the Vinyl Decals you sell on Etsy! …and everything inbetween! Christine also generously shares regular free files that you may use on products that you sell. A valuable resource….
Lets take a little trip to the UK now. This blog is fairly new and has only been going since Feb this year but Wow, the UK 8 person team have put together lots of fabulous content for your reading and creating pleasure. There’s lots of project based tutorials including Scrapbook layouts, Decorating a clock with vinyl or Faux Leather luggage tags and much more. My absolute favourite is the Free font designed by Nadine; The Free Crafter’s Embroidery Font which is a dingbat font perfect for print and cut or Sketch pens designs.
Now I’m Jumping from Britain across the pond to France! Martine produces a regular Free Silhouette Magazine in French. Don’t speak French? Don’t let that deter you as google translate can help solve any language barriers.
Martine offers tutorials and projects in each magazine along with many free cutting files (fichiers) . I had the pleasure of providing an exclusive cutting file for her readers in September’s Issue # 4.
To read the magazines subscribe via the details on Martine’s contact page. The accompanying files for her projects from the magazine are available on her site.
Back to the USA – Kelly has been blogging about the Silhouette since 2010. It goes without saying that there’s a wealth of valuable Silhouette info to be unearthed on her site. She’s owned seven Silhouette Machines since 2008 which in my book makes her an expert!
If that’s not enough, Kelly has worked on the Silhouette Design Team for several years and also as a moderator on the Silhouette Plus Forum. You can find Basic Silhouette video tutorials on her site, as well as many project based tutes and lots of free files too.
Meredith doesn’t just write about the Silhouette. She’s also interested in DIY, General craft and Home projects. But so many of her projects do use the Silhouette as you will see when you peek through her gallery of projects here.
My favourite project from Meredith’s site is the laminated labels. Her step by step instructions were just perfect for a project I did when I first got a laminator, with clear instructions and lots of visual references which helped me immensely. She shares files with many of her project based tutorials too.
This blog hasn’t had any new content recently. Even so, Debbie has a wealth of Silhouette goodness on her site so it’s well worth the effort to browse through her posts.
My braided card designs were inspired by Debbie and she has many other variations of them on her blog along with the free files. For something a little unique , check out her tute for making a Card light up with LED lights!
Hope you enjoyed this round up and discover some new Silhouette Blogs to enjoy.
