Happy 4th! and a Silhouette Promo

Happy Fourth of July!  I hope you are eating BBQ, lighting sparklers, watching fireworks, and all of that good stuff.  We are celebrating little Ruby's 2nd birthday today (a bit early) with a simple family party.  She's a little firecracker, so a near Fourth of July birthday seems appropriate.  Can you believe Ruby is already two?  It boggles my mind.

Also, just wanted to share the latest promotion from Silhouette ...

From July 4 - July 11th, use the promo code, JILL, at checkout to get a Silhouette CAMEO with Silhouette Studio Designer Edition for $269.99 (MSRP $350)

Already have a CAMEO?

Get Designer Edition for only $24.99 (that's half off!)

What's so great about Designer Edition?  It has all the functionality as Silhouette Studio, plus the following designer features:

Ability to open, manipulate, and cut .svg files
Rhinestone tools convert designs into rhinestone templates and create your own rhinestone designs
Sketch tools to convert designs into several styles of sketchable art
Create knife tools allow you to clip designs using different patterns
Enhanced eraser set to modify designs with more precision
Built-in ruler and guide lines for precise alignment and drawing.

You can see Designer Edition in action in Silhouette's Video Tutorial library on YouTube.

Having a Silhouette can be a real time saver.  Recently I used the flocked heat transfer material to cut numbers and letters for a car caddy gift - it was a lot faster than freezer paper stenciling, as shown in my Car Caddy tutorial.

I also switched out the piping for some bold bias tape.  Makes a nice pop of color, don't you think?

I love the bright pink piping! Great idea. I remember when you made the car car caddy for So you Think You Are Crafty. That was a while ago! and the car caddy is still AWESOME!

That's really a good idea.
I'm going to make one or something that looks like it for a little boy who loves playing with little cars very soon!
