Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway ~ $300 Value!!!!

in giveaways

This giveaway is closed. Winner announced here.

SQUEEEEEE!! I am so excited to tell you about this giveaway today! I’ve had to keep this fabulous secret to myself for a few weeks and I thought I was going to burst!

The amazing gals at How Does She and the folks from Silhouette asked if I would like to try out their new digital craft cutting machine…If I didn’t like it, I could send it back, no questions asked. I’ve been longing for a cutting machine for ages, so this was a no-brainer for me.

I have fallen head over heels in love with this fabulous little machine and one of you will get to welcome it into your home too!

The Silhouette is a digital craft cutter that connects to your computer just like a printer. But instead of printing designs, it cuts them with a little blade! The Silhouette is totally different (and fabulous!) because there are no expensive cartridges to purchase. You can use the fonts already on your computer or purchase designs from the Silhouette Online Store for only 99 cents!

I was blown away by all the things you can do with the Silhouette. Obviously, it’s an incredible machine for all you scrapbookers out there. I’m not a scrapbooker myself, but I’m going to have a really hard time justifying $4.00+ for greeting cards when I can make my own with the Silhouette.

Of course, I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself. After a pretty easy set-up, I whipped up this little piece of birthday artwork for my son’s bedroom. Side note: How is it possible that my BABY is turning 4?

There are so many things to try and I’m dying to get to know my new machine even better. Glass etching? Yes, please!!!! Vinyl wall decals??? Oh yeah!!! Heat transfers for fabric and clothing???? AWWWW YEAH!

There’s even a Silhouette Blog where you can find tons of inspiration and free weekly downloads!

Are you dying to find out what you can win? Here’s the deal…One lucky winner will receive a prize worth $299.99! The prize packages includes:

  • Silhouette machine
  • Software for Windows XP/Vista
  • Power cable, USB cable
  • 2 Cutting mats (one for thick media, one for thin media)
  • One cutting blade
  • $10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store

Here’s how you can win:

  1. Leave a comment here telling us how unbelievably excited you would be to win.
  2. Visit the Silhouette site and check out all the incredible things you can do. Then come back and tell me what your first project would be.
  3. Take a look at the downloadable designs. Then come back and leave another comment telling me what design you love.
  4. Blog about this giveaway with a link back to this post. Then leave another comment with a link to your post.
  5. Mention this giveaway on Twitter or Facebook with a link to this post and come back and leave another comment.

That means that each of you can get up to 5 chances to win this awesome prize!

This giveaway will end on Monday, August 9th at noon (eastern time). Giveaway open to US residents only. Silhouette is not Mac compatible.

8 linda t August 8, 2010 at 2:03 pm

OH MY GOSH, I NEED THIS!! And I didn’t even know something like this even existed!! But it would allow me to put something on a leaded-glass window that I just found at a thrift store. This would make that happen!!

9 Denise August 8, 2010 at 2:30 pm

I’ve been wanting to get some vinyl wall decals. With this I could just make my own. How wonderful that would be!

16 charlene August 8, 2010 at 3:39 pm

I would be so happy I’d let my son videotape me doing a happy dance and actually post it on my blog – you know, I’m always the one behind the camera, and that’s for a reason, so to say I’d actually post something showing me – well, that’s big!

17 Charlene August 8, 2010 at 3:40 pm

My absolute first project would be to do some glass etching. I LOVE it! And, I’ve got an ugly lightcover that could be prettied up in no time!

28 Stacy P. August 8, 2010 at 4:44 pm

There is a such a long list of things I would do with this machine, but with school fast approaching I’m sure the first thing I would do is use it to personalize my children’s school supplies, pencil boxes, backpacks, book covers etc.

29 Stacy P. August 8, 2010 at 4:48 pm

I love the flower designs they have, soft and dainty, perfect for customizing some boring throw pillows I have in my bedroom.

30 Heather August 8, 2010 at 4:56 pm

48 amme August 8, 2010 at 8:50 pm

HEAT TRANSFER….that would be my 1st project. I have a 5 year old and she would love helping pick out designs for shirts!!

49 amme August 8, 2010 at 8:53 pm

I would download the bat for Halloween and add “battitude” underneath. I’d use it for heat transfer for my 5 year olds Halloween shirt. WE LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!

50 Angela Hamilton August 8, 2010 at 9:07 pm

52 em guidry August 8, 2010 at 9:42 pm

How awesome is this?!! After I added monograms to all kinds of things in and around my house, I’d start on my classroom! Our class mascot is an owl and with all of those adorable owl designs I could not only decorate my classroom, but personalize ALL sorts of things for my students! LOVE it! :)

53 Linda August 8, 2010 at 9:55 pm

55 Linda August 8, 2010 at 9:59 pm

Ok … so I visited their website and I definitely think my first project would be something having to do w/ the heat transfer ideas!! wow! the # of t-shirts I could make!! **LOVE**

56 Heather August 8, 2010 at 10:00 pm

My first project would be some glass etching – I need to provide my kiddos with some privacy in the hall bathroom and an etched window would be charming!

57 Heather August 8, 2010 at 10:08 pm

I found the perfect design in the downloadable designs – a wave pattern with sea shells! We have a beach/seashell/lighthouse thing going on in the hall bathroom ( boy friendly) and all the etching designs I’ve seen were too swirly and girly for our growing up too fast young man – the subtle waves would be perfect!
Of course if I have fun with the hall bathroom, our daughter’s tiny powder room window would look amazing with any of the swirl designs in etching!

58 Robin August 8, 2010 at 10:09 pm

I have been wanting my own Silhouette since they first came out! I’ve seen them all over blogland, and I am seriously wanting this! What a great giveaway, thanks for the opportunity!

59 Robin August 8, 2010 at 10:12 pm

I think my very first project would be one of the subway art projects I’ve seen. I’ve got some great neutral tiles that would be a great background, now all I need is the vinyl cutting tool….hint hint wink wink!!

60 Robin August 8, 2010 at 10:15 pm

I love one of the birds on a branch designs, I think it would make a great accent somewhere around the house–and since my nickname is “Birdie”, I think it’s especially fitting!

61 punkinmama August 8, 2010 at 10:51 pm

Oh my goodness, I would absolutely LOVE this machine!! My mind is reeling with all of the fabulous things I could do with this!! What a great giveaway!

82 Ashley August 9, 2010 at 1:08 am

The thought of winning this makes me sweat. I know, gross. I don’t *actually* sweat, but I get nervous enough to!

83 Ashley August 9, 2010 at 1:11 am

Very first project…

turn my dining room into the coolest homeschool room… ever. I have a very important kindergartener that will be learning in there!

84 ashley August 9, 2010 at 1:16 am

Favorite downloadable design… there’s a bunch! I like the words “the kids”… Because that’s pretty much my answer for everything. Why were you late? “The kids.” Who are you taking to the doctor? “The kids.” What are you up to these days? “the kids.” Who did it? “Not me.”

Ok, so maybe “the kids” isn’t the answer to everything.

85 Ashley August 9, 2010 at 1:19 am
86 Michelle August 9, 2010 at 1:23 am

I may have squeed so loud I woke my sleeping husband and newborn. That’s how excited I am!

First project? Vinyl decal for our front door!

88 Michelle August 9, 2010 at 1:25 am

The little pumpkins are an adorable download. Imagine them in a front window starting next month.

89 Grace August 9, 2010 at 1:52 am

90 Grace August 9, 2010 at 1:55 am

Well first I would label all the glass jars and canisters in my pantry, then I would make a vinyl chandelier for my bedroom……………..

First thing I’d to is make my kiddos some super cute t’s!!

99 krista August 9, 2010 at 8:36 am

I just heard about the silhouette cutter and I can’t believe it. I have owned the cricket cutter for 4 years now and haev used it to make everything from scrapbook pages to motorcycle decals but I have always had a problem with the fact that I can’t use my own designs and images I have to use the ones on the cartridges. It is about time that a company like silhouette makes the break and creates a great product like this. I would be so excited to win and I have a whole group of scrapbooking friends that will me very excited to hear about this new product.

100 Emily August 9, 2010 at 8:45 am

I need one of these! My first projects would be Christmas presents. I’m determined to make most of my gifts this year, and this would make that endeavor so much easier! I’m thinking glass etched plates and containers. Than I’d probably label everything in my house with vinyl. : )
