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!

I would want to try vinyl wall art for our entryway or some scrapbooking projects! Thanks for the giveaway :)

302
Kori June 24, 2011 at 7:40 am

I would start out with the iron-ons. My husband’s softball team plays very well and they have a shot at the wildcard slot for the playoffs. So with the Silhouette Cutter I could print up personalized team shirts. With new shirts and little bit of luck they may go all the way! Very excited about this giveaway…Thanks for the chance!

303
Julie McD June 24, 2011 at 7:40 am

As much as I’d love to say the glass jars, I’m guessing my kids would convince me to do tattoos first! Looks like so much fun! I could make some really cool Christmas gifts too!

304
Cara June 24, 2011 at 7:41 am

Eeeek! This has been on my wishlist for quite some time now. I am in love with the idea of making heat transfer shirts for my little guy, and I’d also like to try out the vinyl! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

309
Miranda June 24, 2011 at 7:41 am

310
Becky June 24, 2011 at 7:42 am

311

316
Liz June 24, 2011 at 7:42 am

I have etched glass before, but had to hand cut contact paper to make the border! It looked terrible! I’ve done so many hand cut items that this machine would be a great addition! I would like to use this in combination with my Print Gocco machine and do some silhouette/screen printed collages!

317
Kimberly June 24, 2011 at 7:42 am

What a great giveaway!! My first thought is I would redo the labels for the items in my pantry. But now I am totally thinking fake tatoos!!! My son and my friend’s boys would LOVE them!! An “I heart mom” tatoo on an 18 month would be so stinking cute! Oh please oh please let me be the winner!!

318
Candice Hart June 24, 2011 at 7:43 am

I’m so excited to see this give a way again! I’ve been wanting one ever since I last saw it on your blog! Thanks so much for the opportunity.

As for my first project it would definitely be paper crafts. I have a graduation party coming up in a few weeks and would much rather make all of my decorations than buy them!

319
katie June 24, 2011 at 7:43 am

I would love to put a vinyl phrase on one of my walls in my bedroom. But, I think I would use it most in my classroom for bulletin boards and craft activities! This is an awesome tool!

321
Callie June 24, 2011 at 7:43 am

Vinyl. Definitely vinyl.
Thanks for the opportunity! :o)

338
Stephanie June 24, 2011 at 7:45 am

I have two children that would think I am the best thing since sliced bread (or cake!) if I could give them temporary tatoos! For myself, I would like to creating items with the iron-on transfer feature. I’m a stay-at-home Mom, trying to start a small business. Perhaps I could put my company logo on t-shirts or bags? How wonderful would that be!

339
Anamarie R. June 24, 2011 at 7:45 am

OMG I love the labeled containers in the kitchen. That would have to be my first project. So Cute!

340
Jessica June 24, 2011 at 7:45 am

We just bought a new house, so the possibilities for labeling and decor are seemingly endless. I’m particularly interested to try glass etching!

341
Marci June 24, 2011 at 7:46 am

I would love to use it as a scrapbook project. I love making books but they are very handmade without computer help!

I would love to start with some vinyl. This would be great for organizing and gifts! :)

343
Alison P June 24, 2011 at 7:46 am

Since we just bought our first new home and it is in desperate need of decorating, my first project would be vinyl wall decorations.

344
Jey June 24, 2011 at 7:46 am

I would definitely want to try the vinyl and decorate my walls with something fun. :) I have so many empty walls that I could use something creative to decorate them!

345
Haven June 24, 2011 at 7:46 am

This product is totally new to me and looks amazing! I wouldn’t know where to begin! If I would get this, I would start by making labels and designs to use in my home!

346
Stephanie June 24, 2011 at 7:46 am

I have 10 month old twin girls with a birthday coming up and I would love to stretch my creativity as far as I can with the decorations and their outfits — and I think this machine would be fantastic for both!!!

351
Krysten June 24, 2011 at 7:46 am

Oh my goodness! What a cool tool! I would LOVE to make labels for all of my baking ingredients. They are in really pretty containers right now but it would be nice (and very pretty) to have labels so I no longer confuse flower for waffle mix! : )

352
Brandy June 24, 2011 at 7:46 am

What a great contest! I would love to do some decorative plates to give as gifts :)

361
Ednna Peralta June 24, 2011 at 7:48 am

Oh My God!!!! Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway!!!!!!
I would try the glass etching as my first project. I bought some jars a few day a go for my ribbons and embellishments and I believe my jars would look just amazing with some etched phrases on them.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!!!!!!!

Melissa Power June 24, 2011 at 7:48 am

367
Angie Robinson June 24, 2011 at 7:49 am

I would like to try the vinyl – but first and foremost – some fun papercrafting! I’m envisioning creating something really fun to announce and countdown our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World to my kids!

368
Emilie June 24, 2011 at 7:49 am

I would definitely try out the etched glass projects!

369
Marsha June 24, 2011 at 7:49 am

Mmmmm, I would have to start at the very beginning and do something simple. I’ve never worked with any kind of silhouette machine before. Looking forward to it.

370
Tabatha June 24, 2011 at 7:49 am

I REALLY want one of these!!!!! I would like to do the iron ons for clothing or the vinyl for the wall. I would reall love to try all of it!!! Tabatha

371
Tiffany Cable June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

The first craft I would do would be to let my mom do whatever she wanted with the machine. I would help her with the project. You see this is the one thing that would relax her more than anything. She has three boys and they stress her out all the time and I’m away at college and can’t help her with them. This is the one thing that my mom can focus on that won’t make her think about her anxiety, stress, weight, my grandma’s death, and everything else she needs to plan for in the upcoming weeks. It would be so great if I could win and give it to her. Besides I want to try and make fake tattoos. That’s the coolest thing ever.

372
Heather G June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

I would try making some decorations for my new classroom! Being a first year teacher, money’s tight and making my own decorations would be cheaper and more unique!

373
Sylvia Conger June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

I check out your blog everytime you post and I love hearing about you life. I am a nana of 7 great kids and I would love to make some matching tee shirts with the heat transfer feature so I can take a picture to scrap. Thanks for all the fun. Sylvia

374
Savannah June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

I would LOVE to make myself some t-shirts. And, I could possible start making my own camera straps & bags. Thanks so much for this offer, and good luck to everyone!

375
marywithgarden June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

I can see why you love this machine. So many projects you could do with such precision. Boggles the mind to think about. I think I would surprise my adult children with making them a temp tattoo to celebrate their birthday and include it in a custom made card that would be in the same theme. I can see an antique tractor tattoo for my daughter who loves urban agriculture with a card that would be fields of crops surrounded by city buildings in the background….hmmm. Wish I had the Silhouette right now to get started!

376
Amy June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

I definitely have some new vinyl projects in mind for the house! Great giveaway! Thank you!

377
Sara Sheehan June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

This year, my sisters and I have been starting up a home-based cupcake business….I would LOVE to make my cupcakes prettier by making some of the wrappers and some picks for on top!!

378
Becca Zachow June 24, 2011 at 7:50 am

All of those projects are adorable! I’d love to try the glass etching- How fun!! Thanks for the chance to win one!!

379
Sasha June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

My daughter would LOVE some self-designed fake tattoos! What a great giveaway!

380
Jen Knox June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

The first project I would try would be the etched glass! I’d love to label all of my glass containers that I use for baking ingredients and actually display them nicely rather than having them take up cabinet space because they look so “utilitarian” right now!

Thanks for the opportunity to enter! What a fabulous prize!

381
Karen June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

I’d like to make transfers for our flour and sugar jars.

382
joy June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

I want to do the heat transfer first! I want to be able to spice up tote bags and throw pillows around my house without the time and effort it takes to do embroidery. I’m a lazy crafter! :)

383
Dana Jack June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

I love the etched glass. I would definitely have to give that a try. So cool!!!

384
Heather June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

I am pregnant with my fourth child and am in full nesting mode – everything needs to be labeled in this house, I say! Silhouette, come to Momma (times four)!

I especially intend to etch as much glass I possibly can. :)

385
Kerri Pearson June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

I have purchased 4 beautiful frames that I plan to hang side by side in my hallway that will have a brown and cream zebra print background and I would use the silhouette to spell out HOME in the frames.

386
Alyssa June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

I have bins with all of my books stored in them. I would create very nice stick on labels to help me remember what genre is stored where.

387
Sara P June 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

I would use it to make vinyl letters of my church’s theme verse and put it on the wall in our foyer. Who knows what I’ll do after that!

388
Shannon June 24, 2011 at 7:52 am

I think I’d have to try it on glass first. I have plans to make homemade limoncello, and have bought some swing top bottles. This would be the perfect finish for my project!

389
kari June 24, 2011 at 7:52 am

I would love to try etching the glass. That looks like so much fun

390
Jamie June 24, 2011 at 7:52 am

Toss-up……..I’ve always wanted to try the etching, but those tattoos might be the winner!

391
Mandy June 24, 2011 at 7:52 am

I want to try out tattos first!!

392
Aimee June 24, 2011 at 7:52 am

Tattoos!! I can just imagine the fun my kids would have with those!!

393
barb giglio June 24, 2011 at 7:52 am

what an awesome give a way! :) i would use it to make my cake boxes custom and pretty! my head is spinning at all the ideas i would incorporate this tool with for my clients that i cater, bake and design for. thanks for the opportunity… and just wanted to say, i love your blog! :) barb

394
Krissy June 24, 2011 at 7:53 am

The first thing I would try? WHERE would I begin? I absolutely love making posters, decoupaging, creating things to make my classroom a fun space. The very first thing I would cut out would be large flourishes to attach to some collage canvases that I am making… and that’s just the beginning. :)

Thanks!

395
Ashley June 24, 2011 at 7:53 am

I would love to get my hands on some beautiful fabric and make some super cute tshirts for the girls I nanny and then add vinyl labels to everything I own!

396
carlaj in ar June 24, 2011 at 7:53 am

397
DeniseAck June 24, 2011 at 7:53 am

399
Lauren June 24, 2011 at 7:53 am
