The Ultimate Silhouette Guide ebook RELEASE!

They Ultimate Silhouette Guide, Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette Studio, Silhouette tutorial
It's finally here...it's finally here!!!  I am finally ready to share my third baby with you: "The Ultimate Silhouette Guide: Tutorials, Tips and Troubleshooting (to get the most out of your machine)".

For months and months and months I've been plugging away on the ebook, what you might consider the 'Silhouette CAMEO Dummies book' and I know so many have of you have waited so long for the ebook.  Shingles, wrist injuries, the blog, a growing Etsy business and everyday life as a work at home mom delayed the release by more than three months, but today I could not be more ecstatic to finally say it's officially on SALE!!! 

Add to Cart

The nine day pre-order period left me completely floored and humbled to say the least.  I have poured so much time, knowledge, and love into this book and for nearly 700 copies to sell on pre-order is so overwhelming it brought me to tears.  I cannot fully put into words how much your trust in me and loyalty to Silhouette School means.  It's truly overwhelming and I thank each and everyone of you who have ever read a tutorial, shared a post, tagged a friend and ordered The Ultimate Silhouette Guide from the bottom of my heart!!!

  3. Just ordered, uploaded to Staples and can pick up tonight! I am so excited to have a lingo friendly guide to flip through! The website is great but if the lingo is not known it is impossible to find the tip you are looking for (ummmm - maybe because of all the richness of the information and getting distracted before getting to the original post :) Love your work!

  4. Melissa, you are a godsend! Finally everything is in one place, easy to find and easy to understand instead of on a gazillion notes scattered around my craft room. I know I'll be using my Sil a lot more now. Thank you so much!

  40. Hi! I would love to win your eBook! I can't tell you how many times so far, in the 6 months that we've had our Cameo, my hubby and I have been close to selling it due to frustration but then I remember "let's look at Silhouette School!"...and BOOM...you save us (and my Cameo). We are hoping to build a business with our machine so your eBook would be a very treasured possession! -Jessica Willis

  41. The doctor told me that at 79 I should keep my mind busy, so I choose a Silhouette to help with cards, crafting. And boy have I been busy trying to figure out how to do something and watch a video at the same time. I need this book

  43. I was gifted my machine by a dear friend about 8 months ago. I have yest to venture past the basics. I would love to do all the other cute things but I get nervous and over welmed.

    ReplyDelete
  44. When I first received my machine and started it up -- I became quickly frustrated and was ready to sell. I put it away for a month and then decided to take it out and start all over again - now I can't seem to do without it--I've even taught myself how to design with the program. I have learned much -- but I'm sure this book will make my life with the Cameo more livable! LOL Thank you!

  116. I am thinking of ordering this book but cannot decide on the hard copy or ebook. I would prefer the hard copy but would like the updates option of the ebook, plus the ebook would cost me an additional $18.00 to have printed. Is there a way to get the updates if I buy the hard copy or are they the same as the tutorials and tips as part of my regular subscription to Silhouette School?
