Congrats Caitlin! I’m so excited for you and your new bundle of joy. I’ve sent you an email!

Guys, I’ve got an awesome giveaway to share with you today. It’s the brand new 12-inch Silhouette CAMEO™ personal craft cutter. Like a printer, the Silhouette plugs into your computer with a USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more.

The new CAMEO™ can now cut materials up to 12 inches wide! It comes with the software to create your own designs, and you can also cut out any font on your computer, including all the Kevin & Amanda Fonts! The Silhouette is Mac and PC friendly.

ashley.peavler@gmail.com October 25, 2011 at 2:20 am

Rebekah October 25, 2011 at 2:20 am

1LuvnMama October 25, 2011 at 2:43 am

amanda wright October 25, 2011 at 2:51 am

Colleen October 25, 2011 at 2:52 am

I think my first project would be to cut out custom bokeh designs…I’ve tried with an exacto knife before and it just wasn’t to my liking…this sounds like it would make it super easy. And I’m very intrigued by the rhinestone designs too!

laura October 25, 2011 at 2:58 am

i’d use it to make monogramed t-shirts for my 2 little girls!

tiana! October 25, 2011 at 3:02 am

Heather October 25, 2011 at 4:34 am

Eeeeee!!! Oh the possibilities! I think I would do gifts for my sons preschool teachers for Christmas! Perfect! And then finally start putting together a scrapbook for both of my kids…..:)

Barb October 25, 2011 at 4:37 am

They are very fun. I’d love to win it! Thanks!

Mindy October 25, 2011 at 4:41 am

I am not sure if this would answer your question, but I would take single photos of each person in my family (there are just 3 of us) and I would make a silhouette for each photo and then fill the silhouette with something fun.. either pretty pastels.. or a collage of some sort. Then I would frame each of us and hang the three on a wall together. I know that I might be able to do this without the machine, but the silhouette cameo would make it sooooooo much easier, and precise! so, I would make that. I hope I’ve inspired someone else do make this same project. You can make them as a family, and it can really be something to cherish for years to come.

Shelly October 25, 2011 at 4:41 am

I think I’d try the vinyl out first. We just moved into a new house, so I’d love to decorate my daughter’s room!

Sandi October 25, 2011 at 4:42 am

It can do so much! I love the idea of the washer and dryer. I think I would start with the vinyl. I would love to use it to decorate the grandkids room too.

Carla Walker October 25, 2011 at 4:42 am

Donna October 25, 2011 at 4:46 am

Ohhh! Love what it could do! I would probably start with some vinyl designs for the walls in my house!

My first project would be using the rhinestones to make some awesome things for my little girl who loves bling.

Jessie H October 25, 2011 at 11:30 pm

Definitely the vinyl on the appliances! We don’t have a laundry room just a closet with no doors. We had doors, but since we have two kids in cloth diapers there was no point to them since they were never closed, so we took them off ;) It would be nice to dress up the washer/dryer a bit!

Caren Johnson October 25, 2011 at 4:54 am

Wendi Rhodes October 25, 2011 at 5:20 am

I’d love to work with rhinestones!!! Fun!!!!

Mary October 25, 2011 at 5:23 am

That machine can do so much it would be hard to decide what to do first. I especially loved that it did heat transfers. I would love to make some custom shirts and aprons!! This machine is so awesome!!!

Sarah October 25, 2011 at 5:23 am

If my washer could look like that, laundry would be much more fun!
