No Solicitors, Please / July Promo


I’m a new affiliate blogger with Silhouette. Each month I will be posting something in concert with one of their promotions. You can use my code: MELISSA to take advantage of that deal. By using my code, you will get a deal and I will get affiliate kick-backs. I genuinely stand by this tool and I use it all the time! If you have any questions about the machine, supplies or how to get started, feel free to ask in the comments below.

We get a lot of solicitors in our neighborhood. It’s sort of strange since we live very much out of the way of anything. Maybe they like to target our community because there are just homes around us? I don’t know. I’ve had a few incredibly pushy salesmen knock on my door recently, leaving me with a very icky feeling.


Since then I’ve put a “No Solicitors” blurb on the bottom of my chalkboard, but that doesn’t even seem to help. I needed something a bit closer to eye level.

I sketched up a few different ideas (thanks for chiming in on which was your favorite, I had a tough time deciding), digitized it and cut it with my new Cameo.


I could have made it bigger (I just got the new Cameo, it’s enormous and even awesomer than my old SD that I loved so much), but I didn’t want that message be the first thing that friends and family see when they knock on my door. It measures about 2 inches tall by 6 inches wide.

Side note: this is as festive as I get around here. 3 glitter stars pinned to my coffee filter wreath. Boom. Done.


There was quite a response on Instagram requesting the sticker and a downloadable file. I’ve put those up for you. I have 9 stickers left for sale, you can purchase those here. The digital file can be purchased here.


Silhouette has a great deal this month (discount good through July 10th)! If you don’t have a Silhouette and are thinking about getting one, feel free to ask me any questions in the comments below.


You can get their portrait for $129.99 (which I think is a steal, but if you want to do anything on a bigger scale just go for the Cameo. Trust me, it rocks). If you already have a Silhouette cutter, you can get the designer edition software for half off. I’ve been using the designer edition for a week now, and I’d say it’s worth it. I still design the bulk of my graphics in Illustrator, but I still found it more useful for cutting than the standard Studio software.

You get more creative license with graphics (creating, erasing, scaling and shearing), you can cut with a wider range of files and you can easily create your own rhinestone patterns. If you don’t have Illustrator, it’s definitely worth the extra money. You can see all of the features for yourself here.

    Is this offer valid in Canada too, or just the US?

    I just purchased the portrait with your offer code! Thanks for sharing. Now I can take the skills I learned from your calligraphy class and put them to even more uses with this tool. I haven’t figured out how I’ll use the Silhuoette quite yet, but I’m excited : )

      Thank you so much Hollis!! Let me know if you need any help figuring it out. The new software makes it much easier to configure than before.

  3. Linda says:

    Do you have a printable for the No Solicitors sign?

    Hi Melissa! I know it’s been more than a year, but you don’t happen to have any more of these lying around, do you? Or, can I purchase a digital file? The link here says they’re out of stock.
