6 Reasons Why You Don't Need A Silhouette... says Theresa

6.  Dude, seriously. You do not need to match your title font to your journaling font.  What, do you match your socks to your shirts, too?

5.  Okay, but that's too much work.  Type, drag to change size... uh... wait.  That's it?  Well, never mind that.  My point is that making your own titles is tough.  If only you could just download them or something...

 4.  You have to download and use somebody else's designs.  There are only a few, I'm sure.  Not including all those .bmp and .jpeg files you can find on the internet.  Or the free ones that people make and share...  Oh.  You can make your own?  Never mind.

3.  That's such a waste of paper!  You cut out your title, and you get left with completely useless scraps.  Not like alpha stickers.  Those are perfectly proportioned every time.

2.  I can do anything the Silhouette can do with my punches.  Well.  As long as there aren't a bunch of perfectly lined up ones... and they've got enough reach.

1.  I have so many embellishments that I would never need to create one.  I have them in just the right size, color, and style.  Every time.  Well, most of the time.  Actually, if I dig hard enough, I can find something that works eventually.

Okay.  So I guess it's really 6 reasons why you *do* need a Silhouette!  And here's one more to sweeten the deal:  How about a pattern for free?  Here's the pool table I designed as shown on the mini cover in reason #4 above.  Download and enjoy!


  1. You had me going for a moment.
    I bought my friend one because I can't justify to my S.O. the reason for having a Cricut and a Silhouette. So I hope one just falls out the sky?

  2. Oooohhh.....Theresa...I already want one soooooo bad. I love the titles you make with it!!!

  3. I love your title work, if only I didn't have a Cricut that I've invested a million $ in, only to sit on the shelf.
