Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

Time’s Up!

The winner of the Silhouette Portrait Giveaway is:

#855 barbara n: Since it is almost mothers day I would love to make my mom some fabric printed pillows

Congrats Barbara! I’ve sent you an email! :)

Visit this page: http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/april and use the code KANDA to get:

  • 1 Silhouette Portrait™ + 1 roll of black vinyl, 1 roll of white vinyl, and 1 roll of transfer paper: $139.99
  • 1 Silhouette CAMEO® + 1 roll of black vinyl, 1 roll of white vinyl, and 1 roll of transfer paper: $269.99
  • 25% off all premium vinyl bought outside of a machine bundle.

Huge Vinyl Discount

Now through April 26th, all Silhouette premium vinyl is on sale for $9.99 (original price $14.99). BUT if you use your KANDA discount code, you’ll get an additional 25% off the sale price! I have never seen Silhouette discount vinyl this much! Time to stock up. :)

 

The Silhouette Portrait is a brand new personal craft cutter from Silhouette with an 8-inch cutting mat. It’s small in size, small on price (yay!), and BIG on features! The Silhouette Portrait is a personal electronic cutting tool. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 8 inches wide and 10 feet long.

What I’ve always loved about the Silhouette compared to other craft cutters is that with the Silhouette, you can cut ANY font on your computer — no extra charge! There’s no need to buy countless alphabets or cartridges. With the Silhouette, you have a whole arsenal of fonts that you can start cutting right away, right on your computer. You can also use the Silhouette software to trace your own designs you’ve created, or purchase individual designs from the extensive Silhouette Online Store. You don’t have to buy a whole cartridge for just one design! Most designs in the Silhouette Online Store are 99¢ or less. Plus there’s a new free shape each week that can be downloaded and kept permanently in your Silhouette Studio library.

The Silhouette Portrait weighs only 3.5 pounds, making it easily portable. The Portrait can be easily carried wherever you go!

 

There are so many fun things you can make with the Silhouette!

Have you seen these adorable aprons that Ashley from Make It and Love It made using the Silhouette, heat transfer material, and the Our Best Bite’s doodle font?

Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway

You can also cut vinyl for wall words & home decor projects…

Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway

You can etch glass for seriously fun, one of a kind serving dishes…

Use your Silhouette to cut fabric. Just iron Silhouette interfacing to your favorite fabric and send it through the machine on a Silhouette cutting mat.

With Silhouette sketch pens, the Silhouette can draw intricate patterns. Just pop out the blade and insert the color pen of your choice — even white and glitter pens! How awesome would this be for addressing envelopes with a gorgeous handwritten font?? :)

Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway

You can even make fake tattoos. Fun!

From magnet paper to temporary tattoo paper, wood paper to transparencies, the Silhouette can cut a wide variety of specialty media.

 

And be sure to check out Silhouette on Facebook and Pinterest for more great ideas!

 

How to Enter

To be entered to win a Silhouette Portrait, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. What’s the first thing you’d make with your Silhouette? :)

Contest ends Saturday, April 20 at 8 pm CST. One entry per person, please. Winner must have a US mailing address. Winner will be chosen at random and notified by email. Giveaway graciously provided by Silhouette America.

If you’re on Facebook, come check us out here! :)

 

p.s.

Be sure to check back on Sunday, where I’ll announce the winner and post a code for a huge discount on Silhouette vinyl! You’ll want to stock up. :) Good luck!

I’m excited… I’d love to win it. :) The first thing I’d make, well, it would be a toss up between SO many things that I’d sit there thinking about for way too long… so, I’d probably end up going with something simple to start… label my son’s bins for their toys! The thing that gets me most excited is to use it towards my marketing material. ;)

Holy smokes, I could really use one of these!
