There are so many different uses and projects to create with your Silhouette!

Link up your projects, learn about this month’s Silhouette discounts, and enter to win after the break:

Silhouette has their accessories 40% off for TTAJ readers, which is an amazing deal. And it only happens a couple times of the year, and only through June 29! So if you need some supplies, check it out. And it’s also a good time to try some new products — like the sketch pens or making your own stamps!! Or maybe you want to try the new glass etching starter set, or the printable canvas!

Just visit Silhouette and use the code “TATER” at checkout!


Check out my post from earlier this week for some of the amazing projects I’ve made using my Silhouette.
