Check out this Craft Critique Review of the Silhouette! It should give you a good overall look at the original tool- which we have on sale for just $225 (reg. $369) while supplies last (the last I heard we have two left!). If you already own the Silhouette and are looking at their subscription options- you can use the code: CREATE to get your subscription half price! It's a great way to get lots of their fabulous design downloads for a great discount! Happy reading!
