I quite literally breathe a little sigh that’s a mixture of love, adoration, satisfaction and amazement each time I power up my Silhouette. In my humble opinion, today’s steal, the Silhouette SD Machine has got to be my favorite and most-valued scrapbooking tool—ever! If you don’t have this machine, I promise, you will not be disappointed in making the investment, and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, you’ve got leverage! :)

I’ve had the amazing opportunity of exploring the functions of the Silhouette SD machine in greater depth the past two times that we’ve featured them as a steal on ScrapbookSteals.

The first time I focused on the overall functions of the amazing machine. Check out a few photos of the projects that I did.

The second time around I had a blast working with the fabric interfacing and with some flocked and smooth heat transfer material.  Here are some photos.

Because we are so excited to be offering a huge variety of the Silhouette sketch pens this time around, I decided I’d focus mainly on these, and boy am I glad! I think my machine has just gained a whole new level of appreciation from me!

Because I was a little unsure of what to do with the sketch pens, I turned to the amazing Silhouette blog.

I love how easy the blog is to navigate and how inspiration-filled it is.

I decided to put a twist on the May 2nd. Mother’s Day card tutorial and make a card for my own mama.

I truly cannot believe that I have had my machine for six months and have not explored the glorious option of sketching!

I couldn’t resist making another card for my mother-in-law.

I love that I now know another use for all of those gorgeous, intricate designs which are available to download at the Silhouette store.

I wish all of you the ability to have a Silhouette of your own. I could not live happily, scrappily ever after without mine.

Have a great weekend and an amazing National Scrapbook Day!
