My name is EllyMae and I am the owner of Silhouette Secrets+.
I am a wife, mother, and lover of all things wine (as you'll notice in my projects & posts). I won a Silhouette Portrait in 2013 and the first time I used it, I knew I needed the bigger Cameo. At that time, there was not much information out there, but I found what I could and learned by testing & creating things. I love to learn new things that can be done with the Silhouette machines and have turned that into teaching others what I love to do.
I was encouraged by many to start teaching classes and when the TJC Instructor Program was announced in 2016, I signed up. It was one of the best decisions I've made and have met so many great friends & colleagues just because I took a chance. I now teach private lessons & local classes in the Northern Virginia area. I have also had the privilege to be on staff for the Curio Intensive Retreat in June 2017, staff at the All Things Silhouette Conference June 2017, Nov 2017, staff & an instructor at the ATS Conference in Nov 2018, June 2019, November 2019, Virtual ATS 2020, and the instructor at 2 virtual Curio events in 2020. I love to continue expanding my knowledge of what these amazing machines & software can do.
I look forward to sharing the love of Silhouette with all of you and welcome you on this journey!
