I might be a little behind here but I am most definitely a happy mommy here! My mom got me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas! I may be a little overwhelmed about what all I can do with it but I am excited! A tip I wanted to share is that if you are looking into getting a silhouette but don't have one yet you can still get the free shapes. The Silhouette blog gives free shapes every tuesday and you are able to "purchase" the free shapes and download them when you actually get a silhouette. I did this this and it works! :) Just set up an online account and use that account when you get your machine!
Once you have your Silhouette you download the software, go to FILE and down to DOWNLOAD PENDING ORDERS
When you click "download pending orders" it takes you to a login page and this is where you login with the account information you used at the Silhouette store.
Click "check for downloads" and it will download all your shapes! So easy!!
I have been getting the free shapes and wasn't sure if this would work or not. Once I got my Silhouette I soon figured out that they were all there waiting for me!! An excited mommy here!!
Hope this was a helpful tip!
