Portrait 3 tip:
Make sure to add in the Silhouette adapters for the new tool housing to your purchase so that you can use other blades in the Portrait as well as the Autoblade.
The Portrait 3 only comes with the blue sketch pen adapter.
However, they are planning to release new tools that fit in the housing without the adapters – look for more information on that soon.
But for now, grab the adapters so you can use other blades as well.

No matter what Silhouette machine you have, I would love to see what you make!

  1. By chance will you ever show how to etch leather? I am wanting to do this so badly with my earrings, cuffs, purse handles, etc. I know you did it at conference, but I was unable to attend due to health issues. Thank you for your time and have a blessed weekend.
