GIVEAWAY: a brand-spankin’-new Silhouette Craft Cutter for one of you!!!! (CLOSED!!)


Have you heard that Silhouette (my craft cutter of choice) has released a brand new craft cutter?  It’s this sweet little Silhouette Portrait.  Which is smaller, more compact, less expensive (wahoo!)……but is still just as rockin’ cool as the Silhouette Cameo.


But wait, are you worried that you just bought a Cameo…..and now there’s a new Silhouette?  No worries, so was my sister (right, Robin?).  She panicked for 5 seconds, that she would now need the newest model.  I told her not so sweat it.  It’s basically the same machine…..but smaller. The Portrait is perfect for those who want something easier to take with them, smaller to fit on the crafting table, or who have been waiting for a less expensive version.  The portrait doesn’t have exactly the same features……but almost.  Take a look:




And nope, the Silhouette Portrait doesn’t use any of those pesky cartridges and yep, you can still use your own fonts, design your own images, or purchase a single design at a time if you’d like to (usually for about $0.99).  And wouldn’t you know it……’tis the season to be putting my Silhouette cutter into over drive.  There are decorations to make and gifts to dream up.  So I have given the little Portrait the front seat……..and she’s just as dreamy.  (I’ll show you a little something tomorrow.)


How about a video, so you can see for yourself:




If you have never used one… probably should.  But beware, once you start using it, it’s kind of addicting.  I found that out this morning when it had been a few months since using my Silhouette.  Now, I have several projects lined up.  Ack!!! :)



And here are a few projects I have done with my Silhouette in the past.  Man, I love this little machine!








And GREAT news……… of you can hurry and join in on the fun, like pronto, because Silhouette is offering

a brand new Silhouette Portrait to one of you lucky ducks.  For free!  (value: $199.99)

    I’m desperately in need of some artsy-crafty time in a small package! We live in a small home and I’m decluttering like crazy so I can get to my craft supplies (which typically involved climbing on a step ladder into my closet to reach one of the bins that’s stored under another bin…). Something small, quick to use, and quick-to-make beautiful things would be a salve to my soul! Hope I win. :-)

    I have been wanting a silhouette forever! I keep going back and forth but keep telling myself to wait. I love the new size and the look. I’ve been wanting it to spruce up my classroom and of course for the vinyl and heat transfer! My husband keeps telling me that he will get one for me soon but I can’t seem to bring myself to pay the price. Super excited! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    kerry says:

    My 6 year old son is VERY picky about his t-shirts. He only likes very specific graphics and the fabric and size have to be just right. I have given up buying him shirts and instead we work together to make freezer paper templates and print whatever he likes on soft shirts. He loves his custom made shirts and using the silhouette would make my part of the job a lot easier!

  92. 92
    Stephanie says:

    I have about a million crafts pinned, just waiting for a Silhouette…but, alas, I don’t own one.

    Kaye Sanchez says:

    I would love to have a Silhouette Craft Cutter. I am a teacher and I do a lot of crafts with kids and it requires me to cut 20-35 pieces of a shape. Having a craft cutter would save time and allow me to do way more with my kids and less work means I’ll have more time to spend with my own child. :)
