ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT ABOUT IT – MUST HAVE!
Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software Card
- Enhanced rhinestone and sketch features
- Import .svg files
- Creative knife and eraser tool
I can not express enough how this upgraded software is a must! People are missing out if they do not. I think I lasted for only a week of using the Standard Version of the Silhouette Studio before I decided to upgrade. When I went to the official Website it was going to cost me $50. So as with any product I always turn to Amazon and sure enough found this upgrade card that provides a key to be able to unlock the free version of SS to become the Designer addition. I had spent $30 but see they are now down to only $25.50! Whewhoo! Worth every penny…and the headaches of having to convert SVG files to be DXF files which doesn’t always work well. So GET THIS CARD! Seriously it’s a MUST! No way I would go back. You’re missing out on hundreds of free SVG files and PDF files that work instantly. 🙂
12″ x 300′ GreenStar Transfer Tape with Bonus Vinyl
Ok…I have to be honest. I’m looking at setting up affiliate links but for only products that I’ve purchased myself. In this case my order of Green Star Transfer Tape that I received today in the mail. From what I could see it was the BEST Amazon option of transfer tape. I’m also hoping it lasts me a while that there is 300 feet of this. My last roll didn’t last me very long. However it was 24″ and I can’t remember by how many feet.
I’ll keep you posted here what I personally feel about this brand…but you can see by clicking on the link the reviews are wonderful. This also came with quite long sheets of scrap vinyl. I received a teal and a white. Both great colors that I know I’ll use. I haven’t measured them but they are well over 6-7 feet in length each. I’m not sure however what brand of vinyl or type of application for temporary or permanent use as it doesn’t state that anywhere. These I will most likely use for my test pieces for vector designs I will be converting to be vector cut images.
Sizzix eclips Accessory – 12″ x 12″ Cutting Mat, 2 Pack by Ellison
These are a great alternative to the standard Silhouette Cameo Mats. These are much more durable and have the perfect amount of sticky to them right out of the packaging. The best part is that they are over half the price and you get TWO mats!
Americopy 100 PCS Full Sheet Letter Size Label Paper
Avery Shipping Labels for Laser Printers
If you’re wanting to do standard labels or stickers to cut from your dicutter machine this paper is a must have. It’s the least expensive that I am aware of and it’s works well. I still in comparison prefer Avery Labels…they are a better quality…and I noticed with my Laser printer the ink doesn’t smudge like with the other labels.

Huion LED Super Thin Tracing Pad! LOVE THIS!
This is one of my favorite purchases. It’s dream to have when you’re working with lining up or layering vinyl. It’s great for when you are working with larger scaled pieces and wanting to place lettering or images broken apart to save on vinyl to then piece it together by using registration marks or in some cases where I’ve printed out the placement of section of lettering to line it up and retape together the alignment of the individual pieces. I wouldn’t be able to do that without this. It is as it says super thin! Amazingly thin! It’s also super light and easy to use. It has 2 light settings and in my opinion a must have purchase. From all the vinyl I’ve saved I believe it’s over than paid for itself.
