Silhouette knocked it out of the park with this sophisticated feature.  This tool  enables you to warp your text in the preselected shapes shown or as the picture shows– it places a grid and small handles on the text.  With the object selected you can basically “warp” or manipulate the text as you wish.  This feature is great for SVG designers.  This feature is standard in the Adobe Software Suite ( Photoshop, Illustrator)  so this feature gets a 5 star rating from me.
There is a plethora of photo editing tools that come with Mac computers, but it’s easier creating greeting cards when tools are in the same program. It has more than 165,000 royalty free images and 4,800+ templates to help you build a customized card for any occasion. All the editing tools are on the main page, which looks a bit cluttered. You hover the mouse over each tool for its name if you are having a hard time deciphering the images. You can print and export your finalized projects, but PrintMaster Platinum doesn’t have a sharing feature for popular social media platforms.

I stumbled across this page while doing a google search for some vintage printables to test out my new printer because I wanted something I would actually use and not just toss and waste the paper. I can not say thank you enough…this is the most amazing resource I have ever seen and it is so kind of you to offer these! Thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you! I’ve bookmarked for the future and I’m so excited to pour over these later today.


Boy oh boy... you better have a printer that feeds your pages in perfectly, or you will end up with lots of crooked-looking cards! Even feeding one by one, as directed, 2 sheets still printed wonky, and despite making several printer adjustments and testing on regular paper, I didn't end up with a single sheet where every card was aligned correctly.

This wallet’s unique design makes it simple for you to easily access and pull out your card of choice from either side of the wallet.

Unique from other wallets that only feature leather of some sort, the Poquito Wallet comes with a hard, durable wooden front that makes it sophisticated in its own right. The Polished wood shell not only offers striking visual detail but also is a durable and protective case for keeping your financial belongings secure.

The split screen library view allows you to pull out a panel from the left side tab in order to view all your files and saved work.  It makes it easier to click on the design you want to work  with and drag the object into your workspace.  This feature alone is a huge timesaver.  I can’t tell you  how much time I’ve wasted switching in and out of the workspace to retrieve a file or pattern.   It would get pretty annoying trying to get a design done and then get  bogged down by this back and forth feature.  This gets a 5 star rating from me.

Truth be told. I don’t think I have ever bought a store-made greeting card. Not only do I find it hard to spend $3-4 on a store-bought card, I rarely plan far enough ahead to snag one up before I need it. I totally wait to the last minute to do these types of things and I am usually making a card the night before or day of. Give me a piece of paper and a pack of markers and I am good to go. Take that Hallmark.
This feature will allow you to install color fonts purchased from the Silhouette Design Store or other font designer.  It’s specifically for fonts that have a variety of colors, embedded shapes and transparencies.  I believe it is probably a great feature for SVG  designers.  Note:  The font shown is one I created only as a sample.  I would give this a 4 star rating but there are other designers or crafters that are probably falling off their chair with this new feature.
Just click on the text links to download each set (farther down in this post). You might want to save them to your computer after you download them. Make sure that your Adobe Acrobat Reader is up to date, as they are PDF files, and that is the best way to use PDF files. (Your web browser’s PDF reader could possibly even make printables look all wonky, so if that happens, check out my ideas for help.)
It seems a little strange that I’m talking about music with a gift exchange, I know. But you don’t talk that much during a gift exchange so it’s the perfect time for some great Christmas background music. This is a great traditional Christmas playlist to get you started or if you’re looking for something with some more modern twists, this Christmas playlist from Sugar & Soul is awesome too! Just make sure to keep the music loud enough that people can hear but soft enough that it’s just background music, not yell over it music.
This really thin, cleverly-designed card sleeve has only two pockets – both a central compartment that holds the majority of your cards (up to 7 cards) and a front pocket for cash, an ID, and one more additional card. For a minimal everyday carry, this wallet is the way to go. Carry it in your front pocket to save your back, or throw it inside your jacket pocket — its thin enough to warrant either options, and won’t spill your cards on the go thanks to Distil Union’s trademarked FlexLock opening that holds it all together seamlessly. Finally, a convenient pull-tab mechanism allows quick and easy access to your collection of cards within — eliminating the need to fumble around with the whole shebang while standing in the checkout line. – Buy It

Trifold wallets have a history of being anything but slim, but the Secrid Slim Wallet is surprisingly minimal thanks to low-profile aluminum pockets inside the leather shell. It can effectively carry a payload of 4-6 cards — enough to get you through a day at the office — and also features a clever spring-loaded push-button feature that grants you quick access to the cards you require.  You’ll surely enjoy the handcrafted design and RFID protection to boot.  It’s no wonder this wallet earned the prestigious Red Dot Design Award. – Buy It

I purchased these yesterday, Avery 8871 Business Cards. I have my old stock and as some people have said, "the newer stock they received are lighter in weight." I have to agree. Also, my old stock had a template to practice on, which the directions said to make several copies of the template to use for future use. These new ones do not include a template. This way, you could set-up the alignment and print on the copies before printing on the cards. As some people have suggested, the printing is off. My old stock cards suggested using Microsoft Word Template 8371 or MS Template 5371. I used Template 8371 and the alignment was perfect. I would suggest not using the Avery website or not using the 8871 Template as suggested. These cards depicted on the Amazon Site are the old stock. The ones received are Avery 8871 True+Print, which is supposed to improve the alignment. My old stock states"Extra-sturdy." matte coated business cards. These new cards with new packaging pictured do NOT state "Extra-
