2015 is an exciting time for Silhouette based crafting businesses, as Silhouette is launching two new machines (the Silhouette Curio and the Silhouette Mint) – plus tons of accessories.

A full list of all of the new products coming out this year can be found at this link.

I’m most excited about the Silhouette Mint releasing soon, but I know that many have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Curio. In case you missed it – the Silhouette CURIO is now shipping on (view here) and (view here). The Silhouette Curio is a companion machine to the Cameo and has the ability to cut, emboss, sketch, stipple, and etch. It features two blade/tool holders and can do things simultaneously.

It looks as though it is bundled with the following: Silhouette Curio™, Silhouette Studio® Software, Basic Instruction Guide, Regular Base (8.5″ x 6″), Embossing Mat (8.5″ x 6″), Cutting Mat (8.5″ x 6″), Cutting Blade, Fine Embossing Tool, Wide Embossing Tool, Power Cord/USB Cord, Free 1-mo Design Store Basic Subscription, and 50 Exclusive Designs. It looks like has several bundles coming soon as well. Pricing is $249.99, but it appears to be “on sale” for $229.99 at both sites.

At this time, I am not planning on ordering a Silhouette Curio, but I want to know what you think! Will you be purchasing a Silhouette Curio? Why or why not? If you are purchasing a Curio – what products will you be able to add to your shop or store?

I am disappointed...embossing/debossing needs more depth. Not suitable for large projects...very time consuming.

I can't disagree with you Sharron. I've actually had a really hard time embossing on paper that isn't Silhouette brand. I've got a project brewing with balsa wood. I hope to be able to share it soon. Christine

Christine -- I've had mine for about 2 weeks, and we're still getting acquainted! So far, so good! Not sure how it would apply for a business. But there will be demos at the Conference in November -- so a good chance for you to see it in action.

Thanks Terri! I saw that you got one. I was gifted a Curio - that is sadly still in its box. I can't believe that I admitted that! Soon though, I will get it out and explore it!

No I don't think I will be purchasing either one of these.
