Skip To My Lou: Free Silhouette Cutter Giveaway and a special discount

Free Silhouette Cutter Giveaway and a special discount: "

Silhouette asked me to review their product and I have two say WOW this is little machine is fun. I love that I can hook it up to my computer and the sky is the limit!

Silhouette is giving one very lucky reader a Silhouette of their very own!

You can't imagine all the projects you can do with this machine. One little visit to their site you will see so many lovely things from glass etching, wall vinyl, heat transfers to stencils for fabric painting. You don't want to miss the Silhouette blog, they have loads of tutorials and free downloads.

I wanted to try something a bit different......... a personalized lunch sack for my daughter's first day of school! I can't help but be inspired by Lunch Bag Art! Have you seen how his kid's take their lunch to school?---amazing. Okay I am not quite there, but I think my daughter will be thrilled with this ego boosting lunch sack!

Yes, this machine does more than cut!

I first created her very own word search at A to Z Teacher. I did an 8 X 15 sized word search and added in adjectives that describe my daughter. Once it was generated I highlighted and copied the word search. I then pasted into my Adobe Illustrator program --- (I think you could use other programs also). I increased the font size of the search letters to 18pt and the search words to 21pt (Myriad Pro Font) and added her name in a fancy font. I then opened the Cutting Master 2 for Craft ROBO. Adjusted the paper size for my lunch sack, choose pen setting.

I then added a Silhouette sketch pen and loaded a white lunch sack on a carrier sheet.

And to my complete delight and amazement, it perfectly printed my word search on the side of the bag!

Seriously, the possibilities are endless with this little machine!
