    Just How I Imagined It (13-Jan-13)

    I love this machine. I waited years for something like this to come along and am so happy that it's just how I imagined it to be. Doesn't take up much space, easy to set up, cutting so far is flawless, lots of online tutorials. It's a bit noisy when cutting, but to me it's the sound of it saying "I'm finally here!". I read many reviews before purchasing and I know some have had issues with the stickiness of the mat or the blade cutting the mat or not cutting the paper correctly. There is a learning curve, but it is not huge or long-term if one stays calm and reaches out to learn from the experiences of others. Google rocks! I know this sweet little machine will take my card-making and projects to a higher level. Thank you Silhouette America! and thank you to my husband for a wonderful Christmas gift!

    I love it! (28-Dec-12)

    Digital die cutting made easy and affordable! I get a little tired of hand cranking my dies so when it was time to upgrade I knew I wanted a Silhouette, and the portrait was right in my price range. The machine is really sleek and attractive. I love that it has all the same features of the cameo but in a smaller package. The software was a snap to install on my Mac. I like that it came preloaded with dies. Also the tutorial DVD helped me quickly understand the software. You might wanna pick up the spatula when you order as the sticky mat holds onto all the little scraps. One thing you might want to do is take the mat and transfer a little lint from some jeans onto the mat; my first cut on the mat was so sticky that it tore some of the paper.

    Love this cutting system! (13-Jun-13)

    I just recently purchased a Silhouette Portrait. It was easy to set up and I was able to begin using it immediately. It does take some time to figure all the features out and to use the downloads effectively...but what fun! I've been a scrap booker for years and enjoy learning new skills and finding new tools. This is one great cutting system.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new Portrait! Had a little trouble learning how to use it, but contacted Silhouette & they promptly responded & it is up & running. Beautiful clean cuts, easy to use. Images are downloaded for .99, so no need to worry about costly cartridges or storage!
