This is a great day, because I get to giveaway one of my favorite and most used products ever!!!  I seriously get so excited about it!

There is also a really fabulous promotion going on starting today, through March 8th.  It's featuring one of the products that I love the most--the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software.  One of the biggest differences between the regular Silhouette software and the Designer Edition is also my most favorite--the built-in ruler and guidelines for precise alignment and sizing.  Let me show you!

On the screenshot below, you can see I'm typing the letter C.  Usually when I'm typing text, the dimensions are really important--I need them to fit in a certain space, both length and width.  As you can see, there are dimensions surrounding the letter, and while the width is pretty accurate, you can see the height is not.   There is a lot of blank space on the top and bottom of the c, so you can't really tell how tall it is just by that alone.

However...when you have the ruler and guidelines, it's easy to see the actual size of the letter, word, or phrase you're trying to work with. I moved the c over to the side, so you can see the ruler right next to it.  Often times, that's exactly what I'll do!

I love being able to stack two words on top of each other, and knowing precisely how tall and wide they will be, so I know if they'll fit in my space.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ruler--I don't think I could live without it now!

Tomorrow I'll be showing you the project I made using that letter c...so stay tuned for the tutorial and details!

So...here are the promo details!!!

(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

What GREAT prices!!! If you don't have a Silhouette, being able to get it with the Designer Software is a perfect time to buy.  If you do have the Silhouette, but don't have the Designer Software, grab it up now...this is a fabulous price!

    HELP???? I have clicked on your link and it will not let me see the bundles to purchase the cameo and designer software package. Can you send me the correct link?

    Thank you!!!

    • simply {kierste} says:


      Thanks for asking about this! You are not the first reader to encounter this problem, and I just heard back from Silhouette. Apparently they switched servers yesterday, and a bit of a bug happened because of it, affecting the promo link. It is the correct link, but just not working right now. It will be back up and running in the next day or so, so keep checking it. As soon as I hear it’s back up, I’ll also post here. So sorry for the delay, and thanks for your patience!!!! XO

      • Michaela Fuller says:

        No worries, technology is our friend and our worst enemy. So excited to get my hands on a cameo, can’t wait to order and have that package arrive. I am starting homeschooling with my preschooler so it will get used a TON! Thanks for all your fun projects and encouragement for those of us who try to do too much :).
