Must Have Silhouette Cameo Tools

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, refer to our policies page

Hello there makers! This month we have been sharing our very favorite craft tools every Friday. If you know me, then you know my very favorite craft tool ever is my Silhouette Cameo. I thought I would share some of my very favorite Must Have Silhouette Cameo Tools with you!

(Some of these links are affiliate links – that just means if you purchase from these links we’ll receive a tiny commission – but there’s no extra cost to you!)

The Silhouette Cameo 3 is my favorite ever craft tool because it’s so versatile and I can create so many things using it. From stencils to paint signs or decor for walls, to paper crafts, to party decorations, to apparel and so much more. 

Because this machine is so versatile, there are lots of accessories that you can choose to purchase with it and for it. I think it’s always important to have an extra blade on hand. Though mine always last a really long time, I think it’s important to have a back up. Picture yourself, late night crafting session, and your blade is dull. No craft stores open… what do you do before panic sets in and you have to call it quits for the night?! Pull out your spare, girl! Crafterhours saved!

Though your machine comes with a mat, you will need replacements. You can choose to get a standard 12×12 or a 12×24 which is on my wish list. 

To have even more design abilities, I suggest getting the Silhouette Design Edition. It’s an upgrade to the program that the machine comes standard with. I highly recommend this, and it’s definitely worth the extra cost. 

You’ll also want the Silhouette tool pack to help with weeding vinyl and paper crafting. The tools make life so much easier!

When storing your Silhouette, it’s important to keep it covered to keep the dust off of it. There are several colors of these covers you can choose from to buy or you can  make your own. 

If you travel places with your Silhouette, say to a friend’s house to craft or maybe you use it in your classroom, I suggest purchasing a tote! They come in handy by making transport easy and a bit safer for your machine. 

I love making things with vinyl! This starter kit is great so you can get the feel for working with vinyl before you buy a bigger order of it. 

Once you get the hang of your Silhouette and you’re ready to make even more fun things like shirts, you’ll love this heat transfer vinyl multipack! You will also want to make things like cups, coffee mugs, and wall art, so you’ll want regular vinyl as well. 

 

And if you get really into making shirts, you’ll want a heat press. This makes the vinyl adhere so much better than irons and the longevity of the shirt is so much better. 

To transfer your vinyl designs over easily, you’ll need a roll of transfer tape. You save money when you buy a bigger roll, and you’ll go through it so it’s necessary. 

I am all about organizing my supplies, especially my vinyl otherwise it ends up all over the place. I like storing it rolled up in magazine holder.

To help cut your vinyl, transfer paper, and other paper, I love my Fiskar Scissors. They are super sharp and work so well.

For more fun, you should try out the sketch pens! Use them to create cards, invitations, tags, addressing envelopes, making wall art, and so much more. 

There are so many more things you can get for your Silhouette, but these are my must haves. I hope you find them helpful and that they make your crafting even more fun!

Back-to-School Family Movie Night

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Snyder’s-Lance, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Pop4Captain http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Hello there makers! We have had such a busy first week back to school, how about you? I thought we would celebrate the completion of the first week with a Back-to-School Family Movie Night, complete with fun snacks and some simple decorations. With the pre-order of Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, we can hardly wait to get our movie watching on!

We are all so excited for the new Captain Underpants movie DVD release. Not only is it the perfect movie for family movie night, but two of my favorite comedians, Kevin Hart and Ed Helms, are the voices of the main characters.

So we decided to theme our family movie night Captain Underpants style, complete with red caps and white underpants. 

We decorated the kitchen table with red pompoms, a table cloth, some white paper clouds, and a couple of fun signs. We also picked up a couple of our favorite movie snacks, Pop Secret popcorn and Lance cracker sandwiches. 

I made red paper capes and white paper underpants and glued them onto small paper bags to hold the Pop Secret popcorn. They were really simple to make and turned out so cute.

We love Pop Secret because it’s a delicious, high-quality snack that people can feel good about sharing with their family… not to mention the great butter taste! Yum! What’s family movie night without the popcorn?!

Lance crackers are one of our go-to snacks.  They have been making little sandwiches for over 100 years with two awesome crackers on the outside with incredible spreads between. Two of my favorites are Peanut Butter Honey and Grilled Cheese! With real peanut butter or real cheese between crispy baked crackers, up to 5 grams of protein, and no high fructose corn syrup, Lance provides a variety of sandwich crackers that are a tasty and satisfying snack solution for your family’s busiest school days. 

To make these crackers even more fun, I added salami capes and pepper jack cheese underpants! They made my daughter giggle quite a bit and they tasted great… mission accomplished. 

After a long week, cuddling up with my favorite snacks and favorite people to watch a fun family movie is just what we needed. 

Want to have your own back-to-school family movie night, too? You certainly can! We bought our Pop Secret popcorn and Lance crackers at Walmart. Plus, the Captain Underpants DVD is will be available in Walmart stores 9/12! Be sure to reserve your copy now by pre-ordering today! While supplies last.

How do you celebrate the first week back to school? Does your family like movie nights? I’d love to hear about it!
