Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

So excited to share a fun giveaway with you today!!

The Silhouette Portrait is a personal craft cutter from Silhouette with an 8-inch cutting mat. It’s small in size and BIG on features! The Silhouette Portrait is a personal 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! You can cut ALL the Free Fonts here on Kevin & Amanda! 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?

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!

    I currently do paper piecing by hand, but would love a Silhouette to make tiny gift box surprises to brighten people’s days, flannel board story pictures, and bulletin board fonts and pictures for my husband’s school bulletin board. Oh, and Christmas cards and ornaments.

  2. Nanette

    I dream of organizing my laundry room, pantry and garden shed. And since I will be retiring soon, maybe it will be a reachable dream.

  3. Connie Dillon

    I would love to win this, so many ideas in my head! First I would make some temporary tattoos for my girls, they would be so excited to see that, then try glass etching and then probably create some decor for the holidays! Happy holidays to you, Kevin and Amanda and thanks for the giveaway.

  4. Doris Rogers

    All of the wonderful examples are so inspiring. It would be difficult picking out the FIRST thing I would make, because right now, I could think of a 100!! What a wonderful product. My sister and I have been into personalizing things for many years, way before there were many options. I would make a wall quote for my sisters tea room that she has set up in an in her new house. She has a special little haven set up in an extra room where she displays all of her vintage tea pots, dishes, etc. It is just lovely.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win. It would be am amazing product to win.

  9. Chelsea

    I have some silly and some inspirational quotes to put on my walls and I would love to learn to print on vinyl. Sounds fun!

    As a homeschooler, I could think of so many ways to use this fun gadget to personalize and organize my school supplies and the children’s things. Personalized binder covers, supply boxes, bookshelf vinyl labels identifying which shelf is for which child, etc.., as well as projects we can do as part of our art curriculum Of course, with Christmas nearing, I would love to do some baking dish monograms as gifts for friends–those look awesome! Thanks for the fun giveaway! Making your delish pulled pork tonight for dinner…yummo!

  16. Lucy Lam

    I regret purchasing the Cricut machines, because it cannot handle the delicate fonts, swirls and intricate cuts like this one can. I would cut many fonts ASAP with this machine. I would love to win this machine, because my husband would flip if I bought another die cutting machine😔

    Thanks Amanda and Kevin. You’re the best?

    I most definitely would create art that I can use on my ceramics. I have been dying to try cutting out sections of clay to create a design and this would be perfect!

  18. Jessica

    So many projects for my wedding could be completed with this machine! Looking forward to making signs and table numbers! :)

  75. Gloria Richards

    The first thing I would do if I was graced with winning a Silhoouette would be to label, label, labrl. I would label all the glass containers that I have filled with foodstuff and throw away that ugly tape I use now. I would make stencils for mu shelves and list what I am going to place where. I know where I want it but my husband doesn’t. That would help so much. Yep, that’s what I’d do, make stencils for labels… then on to other projects. :)

  83. Jenn

    I had no idea such a device existed!! The first project would be signs for my Laundry Room and my Powder Room!!!
