Silhouette (Winner announced!)

Time’s up!

The winner of the Silhouette Craft Cutter is #94 Cerise.

Congrats Cerise! I’ve sent you an email.

Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway

Happy Friday! To celebrate the weekend, I’ve got a Silhouette Personal Craft Cutter to give away today. The Silhouette connects to your computer just like a printer, but instead of printing designs it cuts them with a small blade. It’s small and portable, weighing in at only 4.5 lbs. There are no expensive cartridges or alphabets to buy. 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.

I love that the Silhouette software will trace and cut any image for you. Creating your own designs (like this silhouette of Miley) could not be easier!

Since I’m hyperventilating at the very thought of this give-away, I think I’d tackle my first aid kit straightaway. I’d love to do a proper “Red Cross” style on the front of the case and then etch the glass bottles that store the peroxide, rubbing alcohol, and aloe oil. Thanks for the chance…

59
Nancy June 24, 2011 at 6:52 am

I love words on my walls so I think I would have to use the Silhouette to write my favorite(s) to put on the walls. My friends say they don’t have to think when they come to my house because I have sayings all over. Never boring!

Tradeurbeads June 24, 2011 at 6:53 am

My husband and I move every 2-3 years and we are in the middle of a move right now and I would love to just get organized with all my jewelry and craft boxes. It would just be so wonderful to be able to see what is in each of the boxes without having to open everything and with the boxes looking wonderful at the same time I could just put them out and start projects right away.

63
Debbie June 24, 2011 at 6:53 am

70
Tina H June 24, 2011 at 6:54 am

oh my goodness. oh my goodness. you have NO idea how badly I want one of these. My first project would be organizing the playroom – with a 2 and 3 year old…there are days that it looks as if a toy store exploded in there. My first project would be a combination of vinyl and glass etching…I would make places for everything!!!

71
Wanda June 24, 2011 at 6:54 am

Love your blog. My first project would be for small serving dish that i would put your fabulously delish homemade ice cream in for entertaining. And also the fake tats. Would be a great weekend hit with the kiddos and their friends. Thanks for all your great ideas, pics and recipes!

72
marilyn June 24, 2011 at 6:54 am

73
Michelle June 24, 2011 at 6:54 am

Amanda C June 24, 2011 at 6:55 am

79

I have twins so I would do some major personalization in our home :)

83
Emily B June 24, 2011 at 6:57 am

How cool is that! What great ideas! I would definitely try the glass etching! I was actually going to buy a “frosted glass” design (that isn’t quite right) to go on my front door, but it would be so much better to do something that is exactly my style! Then I’d probably move on to some fabric stuff and do some cute shirts for my kiddos. :-)

84
Karen J Turner June 24, 2011 at 6:57 am

As Public Relations Chair of the Horton High School Craft & Food Fair, I would use the Silhouette to make signs to advertise our school’s music program craft & food fair – the 16th Annual Horton High School Music Craft & Food Fair. An annual fundraiser, unlike most of our local craft fairs, helps send music students on music-related school trips.

85
Tamara Drake June 24, 2011 at 6:57 am

If I should be the lucky winner of the Silhouette, the first project I would tackle would be a special quilt using iron on pictures and fabric cutouts of our family and pets to send to my son who is a US Marine.

Ok, now I just got a Zutter Bind-It-All machine and have been binding everything in sight so I would have to try all the great paper crafts things to enhance all the books I’ve been making! Want one? ;)

Oh, and I love, love, love the vinyl wall art! Would be on the top of my list too.

Thanks for all the fun! Toodles.
