F07163 - Silhouette SD Digital Craft Cutter with 50 Designs
I loved it.
I love silhouette machine. I have downloaded new designs. I ordered one for my daughter in law who is a librarian and new scapbooker. My only complaint is the mtat. It does not hold the paper (or whatever it is cutting) down. I have to watch it closely. But other than that I am tickled.
Love this machine!
I have owned the Cricut since it first came out. I feel guilty because I never use it. I was hesitant to buy another digital die-cutter, but when this one was on QVC for $155, I couldn't help but ask my husband to get it for my birthday. I'm so glad I did! This machine gives me so much freedom to cut so many things. I have over 4,000 fonts and I can use this to cut most of them. And all the images that I own that I can cut. This is the best scrapbooking purchase I have made! (Well, ok, my husband made!) Even if you spend full price, I would recommend getting this. When I think of all the money I have spent on the Cricut and cartridges, this machine is a way better deal! The down-side of the machine is the instruction manual - very basic instructions. Web-site instructions are necessary. Also cost of replacement blades and mats are a little high. Also wish it could cut thicker material.
Love My Silhouette!
I own a cricut expression..
I NOW own a Silhouette.
I bought mine a couple of weeks ago from QVC.
I Love it! Easy to use. Great tutorials on Quikutz. They now have a forum so you can get help through hands on. Just a great little machine. I Love all the downloads and I don't have to buy cartridges anymore... unless I want to. :)
Super easy to use and the cut is wonderful. So crisp and clean.
I also talked my friend into getting one when you were running the special.
I'm just thrilled with it.
A must have!
I love this machine! Its easy to use and The possibilities are endless with it! Its a must have for any kind of crafter who wants endless possibilities- you can make cards, home decor, scrapbooks, wall art, and so much more! This machine is defintly worth the price! Its a great gift for anyone!
This thing stinks
What a disappointment. It was difficult to use, the instructions are cryptic. It can't hold a candle to the Cricut.
I got this cutter when it was a One Time Only Special. What a deal! The on-line tutorial made it easy to learn how to operate. It took me about an hour to feel comfortable with its use, but I'm sure there is a lot more to learn. If you know how to use Print Shop or another graphics type program you should have no problem. I don't scrapbook, but I do make cards, labels, and other art projects, and the results I have gotten so far have been very professional looking. I love that I can use my own fonts and am able to size the fonts and art to the exact size I want. The 50 graphics that come with the machine are a good variety, and the $25 gift card that comes along with the package will enable you to buy up to a dozen more. The only reason I didn't recommend this machine as a gift is that it would be a very expensive gift!
This is a great machine! I considered getting a cutting machine that works with cartridges but the cartridges are VERY expensive. This allows me to use any image or font that I have on my computer! Yes, the manual that ships with the silhouette is very limited, BUT there is a very detailed and easy to follow manual & tutorial on the website. Once you figure out how to load and unload the machine, the possiblities are endless! Can't wait to get home at the end of the day to try out more templates! What fun!!!
Best purchase ever! The setup was easy, and the results professional. I've already completed several projects.
Love it! And not just for scrapbooking.
Ok, I do not scrapbook! But I have this and love it. I am a nite owl and in the middle of the night if I get an idea, I don't have to wait to go to the local craft store, I go on line and down load what I need OR design it my self!
No having to wait and get a cartridge that has maybe all these other things that I don't need.
So here is what I use it for, in the kit you get etchall etching creme (the best) and vinyl. Make your own stencils and tada... etch a vase, place, candle holder, awards etc etc. It is endless and easy.
Get this you will love it as well. Share it with a friend or group.
This machine is not user friendly. I received it yesterday and am returning it as soon as I can rebox everything. I was very disappointed. The instructions are confusing and involve too many steps. Then you have to go on-line to get the different items to cut. I'm just going to stick with my Cricut that is easy to use.
Save your money.
