$300 Silhouette Giveaway!!


Remember when I said there was an exciting giveaway coming?? Well I wasn't kidding! Back in August I was asked if I wanted to not only try out the uber cool Silhouette cutting machine, but also if I wanted to give one away to one of my readers. Hmmm, let me think... umm, YEAH! It was hard not saying anything to you guys as I was really excited to be able to participate in this giveaway, and even more excited to try this fun tool out for myself. So I opened my Silhouette box of awesomeness, pulled out all the goodies, then realized the software was made for a PC. :-/ Well, I'm a Mac user, not a PC user so I was a bit bummed out thinking this might not work out after all.


However, the team over at Silhouette and How Does She worked diligently to finish the development of their Mac software and I was finally up and running with my Silhouette late Tuesday night. I didn't have a lot of time to play around with it, BUT I was able to use it to create the vinyl face for my Jack O'Lantern TV


He is sooooo cool, I hope you'll go take a look after entering!


The Silhouette SD cutting tool hooks up to your computer just like a printer, except instead of printing, it cuts. See there's a little blade that runs across your paper or other material and cuts the precise design you enter into their software. It cuts paper, card stock, adhesive vinyl, heat transfer material, rhinestone templates, and more! This cool machine comes with different cutting blades, sketch pens for when you want to draw a design rather than cut it, and you are given access to thousands of downloadable designs on their website. 

I cannot wait to play with this machine some more! My teenage daughter and I are already trying to come up with ideas to make stencils for t-shirts and I am excited about trying out the sketching tools. My living room definitely needs some cool vinyl lettering, and you can use ALL of the fonts that are currently on your computer!

Here are some other ideas for using the Silhouette SD:

Scrapbook pages


Card making


Custom apparel


Vinyl décor


Etched glass


Sketch designs


Temporary tattoos


Paper crafts


So now, on with the giveaway! This prize package includes the following:

A Silhouette Machine  
(a $299.99 value)

And it includes...
  • Silhouette machine
  • Software for Windows XP/Vista, Mac
  • Power cable, USB cable
  • 2 Cutting mats (one for thick media, one for thin media)
  • One cutting blade

  9. First of all I didn't even know such a machine existed, so I'm THRILLED about that! Second, I would love to win this because I have 2 elementary-aged daughters (ages 5 and 6) who LOVE to do craft projects with me. They both love to use the computer too, so this would be a great tool for them (and me!) to use to build their scrapbooks and projects for school. Lastly, keep your projects, coming Amanda! I LOVE your ideas!!! jilleterry@nycap.rr.com

  34. Dear Amanda,

    You are a very talented lady! As a mom of 7 children, there would be endless opportunities to use this. We would use it to make decorations for our house, presents for family and friends, for Cub Scout Roundtable presentations, girl scout activities, church activities, etc. It would make things a lot easier. Right now we hand draw and cut out letters, etc. It is very time consuming. This would be a blessing for our family.

    Thank you for all of the fun ideas
    Amy

  35. I am dying for this machine! I just can't justify spending that much right now, but I know it would get used several times a day in my house. Thanks, Amanda, for reviewing it and showing what you did with it in even a short period of time!

  110. You have no ideas what it would mean for my daughter and I to win this. My daughter was diagnosed with Cushings Disease 3 years ago and at that time I created her a web page from Caringbridge. It is a web server that allows pages to be set of for sick kids and adults to keep friends and love ones connected. She started a "Card Outreach Ministry" making homemade cards for other sick kids. All cards are homemade and at times it can become stressful making all that we recieve requests for. Winning would be "Over The Top". Praying we win!

This would be a great tool to have!

  139. What a great machine. I have recently been getting more and more into crafting (sewing,scrapbooking,home decor). I am a military wife which means we will be moving around quite a bit. I have recently discovered vinyl cut outs for walls, and LOVE THEM. I have also realized to really take my scrapbooking to a new level I need to invest in some more advanced crafting tools! This machine would be such a wonderful edition to my crafting! I get really excited just thinking of all the fun things I could do with it!

  140. Wow, I would love to win one. I would probably use it most for signs. I have to be the only person that doesn't have any vinyl in my house! But gosh, it can do so much more then I thought.

  141. The first project (of MILLIONS) that I would tackle with this amazing machine would be to etch our last name on my casserole pans...no more lost dishes at tailgates and potlucks!
