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!

  45. Nancy Kivlhen

    I have been wanting to try all of the applications of the Silouette – I have a cutting machine but have arthritis reallybad and would be much asier to cut directly from the computer. Have been looking at them for awhile but never seem to be able to add into the budget. Winning one would be like winning the lottery for me. I love to scrapbook and this would just make it easier and a lot more fun

  46. Ana Luiza Andrade

  53. karen

    My daughter showed me this website – it is one of her favorites! I would try the etched glass first – I’m wanting to do something different with my kitchen cabinets and glass in a few of the doors would look wonderful. I would then practice on my glass ware – wonderful idea when taking dishes to other’s homes. I also think that it would make a great wedding gift to etch the new couple’s names on some glass bake ware. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  54. Gina

    I have 3 little girls~ Oh what FUN I would have using the wall art and etched glass machine for their rooms!

  61. Veronica

    I tend to help people a lot with my design skills and with a busy year still in swing there are so many things I could do with that machine! OMG! What I would do first is help my friend who’s just starting being an independent photographer (she’s only 23!), it would give her a great opportunity to make her marketing unique on a small scale to start out and come in on budget. :) Next I’d do mock tattoo’s as I’m planning to get my first one for my 36th birthday ;)

  62. Maggie

    I would love to use it to make some fun wedding gear for the wedding parties I’m in coming up in august!!!! Plus the glass etching looks amazing!!!

  80. Kelli

    With summer here I want to make temporary tattoos for my little boys that I can put on them when we go on our “adventures”, the tattoos would say something like, “My name is XXXX, If I’m lost please call my mommy at XXX-XXX-XXXX” That way my heart can rest knowing that if we get separated, I know they have some ID (of sorts). That would be my first project.

  81. Judy

  119. Tausha Wierlo

    MAN! I would probably trade my new husband for a silhouette! KIDDING! I have a pinterest board labeled “When I get a silhouette” – I think I would make some vinyl quotes for our Laundry, Kitchen, and bedrooms first. Then tell my full time job I could only work Part Time so I can re do everything we own – and decorate our entire home via silhouette cut outs! NEED this machine!

  120. Lesa

    I would love to make the temporary tattoos! I think they would make a great personalized activity at my daughters birthday party.

  135. Karen

    Which project first? I think the t-shirts are darling, love the glass etching (what great personalized gifts!) and the vinyl to label the house. But I suspect my kids would LOVE the tattoos…so those would probably be first. :)

  136. Dinda

    I would definitely do some iron on fabric to spice up some of my plain tees <3 and some vinyl to decorate my room wall with some quotes i have on ind

  137. Jamie Wallace

    I’ve always thought about the heat set vinyl as my first project but to be honest, the tatoos look so cool! I know my boys and I would gravitate to that first!

  138. Brittany

    The first project I would give a try would have to be some cool cut outs for t-shirts. So I could have a cool tee or tank for my little brothers baseball games!
