Silhouette Life Inspiration Box Review

I LOVE my Silhouette Cameo. Y’all know I’m completely addicted to it and will find any excuse to fire that bad boy up….and I’ve made more than a few things with it over the years. It’s just so fun and easy to use and create anything my crafty heart desires.

I also happen to be a huge fan of subscription boxes of all kinds. I’ve tried some with beauty products, books, things for my kiddos, but surprisingly, never a crafty one. There’s just never been one that’s tickled my fancy….until now!

Allow me to introduce you to the Silhouette Life Inspiration Box! If you’re a fellow Silhouette lover (or even if you prefer a Cricut), you’ll want to keep reading to find out all the juicy details about this crafty subscription box….and enter my giveaway for a FREE three-month subscription!

Silhouette Life Inspiration Box Review + GIVEAWAY!


So, What Is The Silhouette Life Inspiration Box?

The Silhouette Life Inspiration Box is a monthly subscription service that sends fun products, ideas, and tutorials to try out with your Silhouette….right to your door!

It’s like having a crafty Santa visit you every month with new surprise goodies for you to get your craft on. He delivers the goods AND THEN he teaches you fun new techniques so you can learn how to get the most out of your Silhouette machine.

So you not only get new mystery supplies to play with (as is typical for most subscription boxes), but some serious inspiration AND how-to’s are served up as well.

You can scope out some of their past boxes here.


How’s It Work?

You first sign up here and select your subscription plan (either month-to-month or 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month prepay). The boxes are so popular that they are almost always in preorder status, and if you sign up now, you’ll receive your first box in January….can you say “Great gift idea”?!

The boxes cost $34.99 plus $5 shipping each month, and each one includes supplies for a minimum of FIVE projects that are valued at way more than that. Plus, you’ll also be getting full tutorials, cut files, and (most importantly) inspiration, and learning new techniques along the way.

They even have a Members Only Facebook group where you can join fellow Silhouette lovers and unbox your goodies together, or ask questions related to anything Silhouette.

For all the juicy details on how the Silhouette Life Inspiration Box works, you can check out their FAQ.


Opening My First Box!

The first Silhouette Life Inspiration Box that I received is the one that was released in October 2017. You can imagine my excitement when I saw this pink beauty sitting on my doorstep….it was just begging to be opened.

Let the unboxing begin! It truly did feel like Christmas morning as I opened it up.

What’s inside?? What fun, crafty goodies are waiting for me?? What will I soon be making??

Here’s what came in this month’s box! Lots of cool supplies, huh?

Even though I wasn’t sure at first what everything was (that’s part of the fun!), I was eager to find out….

….and the little information card revealed most of the details, including the supplies I just unboxed.

For the rest of the info, though (like how to use the supplies, what the projects are, and full tutorials), I needed to join the Members Only Facebook group.

At first, I thought that I would have preferred to have ALL the information included in the box, but then I realized that it makes sense to give that other info online.

They provide very thorough tutorials including links to download cut files, watch demonstration videos, or check out more details about the supplies. That’s obviously much better suited online as opposed to paper format.

Plus, it was like a second crafty Christmas: first, unboxing the goodies, THEN finding out how to use them and what I’d be making! I just love surprises, and this was a two-for-one.

My First Project!

So here’s the first project that I made with my Silhouette Life Inspiration Box: a *magic* color changing mug with a personalized inkjet water slide decal of yours truly. I know! So cool!


My Final Thoughts

So, what’s my overall review of the Silhouette Life Inspiration Box?

-It’s a fun monthly surprise full of lots of crafty goodness for your Silhouette….at least FIVE projects in every box!

-More than just supplies….inspiration, tutorials, cut files, and support are also included.

-Tutorials are easy to follow, and the Members Only Facebook group is a lot of help and a fun little private community of Silhouette enthusiasts.

-Definitely serves up lots of inspiration! Provides supplies I have either never heard of (gold foil temporary tattoo paper is a thing?!?), or have been wanting to try but have never got around to.

-Would make a great gift….for yourself or a crafty pal in your life!

To sign up for a subscription of your own or as a gift, head on over here….you definitely won’t be sorry!
