Make a Simple Gift Box with Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition software, a new Silhouette Promotion & a Silhouette CAMEO® Giveaway

This post is brought to you by Silhouette.

You know when a post has that loooooong of a title BIG things must be going on over here on the blog! ha! ;) Well, I am not going to disappoint today! :) Silhouette is launching a brand new promotion today centered all around the amazing Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition software.
I’ve told you about the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition software before, & I love it! The biggest difference is that the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition software allows you to use your own images & shapes in addition to what’s available in the Silhouette Online Store. You can also find tons of free SVG files online & cut them out with your Silhouette. So fun! So keep reading to see how I did that to make this simple gift box, get the details of this month’s Designer Edition Promotion & enter to win your very own Silhouette CAMEO®! :)
