NEW Silhouette Curio and Silhouette Mint

Silhouette Curio Machine #SilhouetteCurio #Silhouette

Wow!  I go out of town for a few days and whole new line of Silhouette products is announced.  That made for a pretty fun return home!

First, you’ve got the new die cut (and more) machine, the Silhouette Curio.

Silhouette Curio Machine #SilhouetteCurio #Silhouette

According to Silhouette, this machine will cut, emboss, sketch, stipple, and etch.  It will emboss three ways: regular emboss, score and emboss, and print and emboss.  The new Silhouette Curio has a dual carriage allowing it to do two things at once, like emboss and cut.

The Curio has a higher clearance than the Cameo allowing it to cut thicker material like woods, foils and thicker leathers.

There’s one drawback.  The Curio only has an 8.5″ x 6″ cutting area.  I assume that means a larger machine will come out later.  You might remember that Silhouette got its start with the Silhouette SD, which had a small cutting area.  They held onto that machine for years before coming out with the larger Cameo.  I think it’s a strange choice to come out with less than a 12×12 cutting area for this new machine, but I’ll still be buying one.

You can learn more about the Curio here.

It will be available in August at some places.  Amazon is offering pre-orders of it now.  Retail price $249.

Silhouette Cloud #SilhouetteCurio #Silhouette #SilhouetteCloud

Silhouette is also  rolling out a Cloud that will sync your Design Store library which will make it accessible on other devices.  With the Cloud, your design library is portable, so you can take your projects with you.  You can learn more about the Cloud here.

The Cloud will be available August 2015.

Silhouette Mint Stamp Maker #SilhouetteCurio #SilhouetteMint #Silhouette

This is super cool!  You can make your own custom stamps  with this little buddy. Choose from your Silhouette designs, create from your own fonts, import a photo, or design your own.  You can learn more about the mint here.  If you’re super eager to have one, it looks like it is a rebranded version of the Casio Pomrie, which is available now on Amazon.

It will be available in the Fall of 2015.  Retail price $129.99.

 Silhouette has a new deep cut blade, vinyl, scratch off sticker paper, pens and more coming out too.  You can see those things here.

Here’s the lowdown on the newest Silhouette Cameo machine.

I love it when new stuff comes out, don’t you?  The only hard part will be waiting for these new things to be released.  I can’t wait!  Which new product are you most excited about?

  1. I'm excited about all of it, but I think the Curio mostly. I like the idea of a dual carriage and a wider clearance. My only problem... what to do with my current Silhouette when I buy a new one?!
    1. curio 8.5 in. x 6 in. base 8.5 in. x 6 in. cutting mat 8.5 in. x 6 in. embossing mat Keep your Cameo, you will still need to use it on bigger projects
      1. Thanks for the information! Does anyone know if the new blades are compatible with the Cameo and Portraits?
  2. Thanks for the info Joy! :) Very interesting about the Casio Pomrie, I've been dying to know exactly how the Silhouette Mint works, but after watching YouTube videos on the Casio Pomrie, I don't think I'm interested. The stamp material seems expensive, the stamps look a bit bulky to store and I'm not too fond of how you ink them up. I had my doubts when I saw their sample card with the washed out black ink (but I will admit I can be picky in that department). ;)
  3. I think it’s a strange choice to come out with less than a 12×12 cutting area for this new machine, but I’ll still be buying one.. Counting down the days. It's definitely on my to buy list
  4. So many new toys, and so little time (and money!) I also agree about the smaller cutting space....seems an odd size.
  5. I'm new to this and purchased a design in the store online....it came with 3 different designs, I only want to cut 1 design, how do I do it?
  6. I am new to this and am about to purchase my first machine. I am torn between the Cameo and the Curio. Any suggestions or preferences?
    1. Hi Shantelle, I would suggest you go with the Cameo for one main reason, the cutting area is bigger. That makes a huge difference in what you are able to create. (You can always cut/design smaller things with a bigger machine, but not the other way around.) Over the years, I've heard a lot of complaints from people who bought smaller sized machines and soon after wanted to upgrade to the bigger size. I should have remembered that recently when I bought a smaller sized embroidery machine and quickly wanted to upgrade to the larger one. Ack! So, that's my 2 cents. ;) I hope it helps! :)
  7. Hello Joy and WOW! Fantastic blog, I've been reading so many of your posts (and re-reading!) trying to figure out what die-cut machine is the right choice for me... That is, when I'm not distracted by a "related post" that's too cute to ignore! I've never purchased a die-cut machine before but I'm really interested in the opportunities it could open. The first issue I'm concerned with is the type of material I use. Many articles and comments use being able to cut thicker materials as a selling point - what about thin materials? I focus a lot on upcycling materials like old magazines, newspapers, and comic books that are printed on very thin delicate paper. From watching your videos I worry they would stick to the mat and tear, or even if the blades would cut the material properly! The other primary issues I'm concerned with is the software - I need a user friendly highly adaptable system where I can easily create my own designs. I am not particularly tech savvy but, for example, can use basic Apple software reasonably well - and I would prefer to not be dependant on an Internet connection all the time! Finally, I'm curious if you have had an opportunity to use the Silhouette Curio yet! If so, how does it compare? Wow, this is getting long now, but in case you're interested... The initial reason I was inspired to investigate a cutting machine option was because of my new passion for making paper beads! Especially with an appropriate top coat, they're surprisingly durable and you can create endless varieties - each hand rolled bead is lovely and unique, and I enjoy the process of rolling the beads, but measuring, marking, and cutting sheets of paper by hand is tiresome, time consuming, and not at all fun! Mostly, I need to be able to cut long thin triangles (as narrow as a half centimetre at the base tapering to a point the length of a magazine page!) - I really hope you are able to help me out and suggest a solution - either way, thank you for making such fantastic posts and being a glowing beacon of hope in a world that needs more crafts! xoxo KatS =^.^=
