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!

438
Barb Champlin June 24, 2011 at 7:59 am

This is only the 2nd time I have entered a contest in all the years I have had internet. I was drawn to this because I saved all my husband’s jeans after he passed away to make things for some family members. (Hope this doesn’t sound weird)

Anyway I got some ideas from family and decided on quilt blocks that could be sewed together for pillows, book covers, etc. The hard part was, adding applica so things wouldn’t look so plain.

This machine will save so much cutting by hand (arthritis).

Sorry so long winded
Barb

Barbara Noland June 24, 2011 at 7:59 am

WOW! Picking what I would do first is tough. The glass etching thing is soooo cool but so are the vinyl and the iron on fabric capabilities. Probably the iron on transfers though since I am getting a new grand baby this year and I would love to do some things for his layette! Such an awesome machine!

461
Ashley Terry June 24, 2011 at 8:02 am

I would like to create mason jars that have the names of all the old canning recipes that my grandmother and I used to make together when I was a child. Such as Bread and Butter Pickles, Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, etc. This could create a legacy of wonderful memories to share down the road.
