Missy Briggs – Silhouette America Blog

Short Bio

Hi everyone! I'm Missy Briggs, an artist, lettering fanatic, blogger, wife, and mom to two amazing children. We live in sunny Miami, Florida where I've now been for nearly half my life. I started using the Silhouette Cameo four years ago... to cut out square shapes. Don't laugh! I'm left-handed and I've always been terrible at cutting. My love for the machine has grown into an obsession, and I use it with my art and calligraphy daily. I can't wait to share some of my latest projects with you!

Where are you from?

I live in Miami, Florida.

How long have you been a Silhouette user?

I’ve been using Silhouette products for four years.

What kind of materials or media do you use most?

I love all the materials! I use adhesive vinyl and heat transfer vinyl the most, followed closely by sticker paper and stamping materials.

Where do you find your inspiration?

My children provide me with the most inspiration. I find that making something simple for them can turn into an elaborate multi-day project. I get out of hand with my crafting that way.

Which Silhouette product do you like or use the most?

I use my CAMEO most often.

Fun Facts about me

  • I’m an artist. When I paint, I hold the brush with three fingers, but when I write or do hand-lettering, I hold the pen with four fingers… like a TODDLER.
  • I drink herbal raspberry tea all day long.
  • I’m currently obsessed with British documentaries and Upstairs/Downstairs-type drama series.
