My Personal Silhouette Experience

The Silhouette CAMEO and Portrait have taken the “home crafter” to places they could have only ever dreamed of going before. There is no limit to where you can go and what you can make!

Personally, I’ve been crafting with my CAMEO for almost a year now, and have created more with it than I ever thought I would. I’ve also experienced first hand, the learning curve that goes along with getting to know your Silhouette cutting system.

What did I do? I dove into the software with both feet and learned the hard way, over the course of months, and by lots of trial and some error. This program is specifically designed to help you avoid that, and get you right to the fun of successful crafting!

The Program Format

Crafting With Your Silhouette is delivered entirely online. Sit down for a lesson whenever you want — revisit the material as often as you’d like.

We’ll be using a combination of video, step-by-step tutorials, and pre-recorded demonstrations to teach the program. All lessons and demonstrations are available for replay 24/7.

And again, all of the program material will be available for you to revisit as often as you’d like, whenever you’d like!
