my new love: silhouette craft cutter (GIVEAWAY CLOSED)

I told you this was big ...

A couple weeks ago I was shipped a Silhouette SD Craft Cutter to test out ... with the understanding that if I didn't like it, I could send it right on back with no obligation.  I couldn't resist!  And, um ... I'm keeping the Silhouette, thank-you-very-much.



I've always been under the impression that craft cutters were for the scrapbooking set only.  So while I can see how this product would definitely appeal to scrapbookers, the Silhouette is made for anyone who loves to craft.  If you like to make personalized gifts, home decor, DIY clothing, or just awesome stuff in general, this is the tool for you.  This slim little beauty can cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, and heat transfer material.  I don't know how I crafted without it!  Ok, that is a little over-dramatic, but the point is, I really love it.


The Silhouette hooks right up to your computer so you don't need a bunch of cartridges or extra tools.  You can download literally thousands of images from their online store for a very reasonable price, or simply create your own using the included software. In my mind, this is its best feature, for paper cutting alone - it is like having an unlimited source of paper punches in every shape and size imaginable.

I can't wait to use it for ...

The Silhouette is awesome for paper party crafts - it has templates for favor boxes, cupcake wrappers, table tent cards, cake stencils(!) ... you name it. With a click of a few buttons, you could easily (and quickly) create an entire party theme and decorations (and later this week, I'll show you how).

Of course, the first thing I had to try was the heat transfer.  I couldn't resist decorating a few onesies for the baby.  For the pink onesie, I created my own image using a free graphic and font that came with the machine's software (there is a whole image and font library built in).  For the white onesie, I downloaded the flower graphic (detailed flower 1 by Sweet Afton)  from the online store.



If you want to see even more examples of what this amazing little machine can do, just check out the Silhouette website or blog



So, are you ready for the giveaway?  You can win:
A Silhouette Machine  
(a $299.99 value)

And it 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
This giveaway is now closed!  Thanks for entering!

You know you want it!  Let's keep things simple ... there is only ONE way to enter.  Visit the Silhouette website and take a look around.  Then come back and leave a comment on this post by August 7th telling me how you'd use your new favorite craft tool (as if you could pick just one project).   The winner will be randomly selected on August 8th.  This giveaway is available only to U.S. residents (sorry!).  The only rules: one entry per person and you have to leave me some way to contact you - anonymous comments will be ignored.

BERRETTS said...

I would make a baby onesie. I made the cutest baby leg-warmers (thanks Jill!), but I can't find a onesie to match. I'd heat-transfer a vintage typewriter key in new nephew's (yet to be named) initial.
My three-year-old says we can make pirates, so I guess I'd do that to.
Great giveaway!

Jen said...

I would definitely use it for the heat transfers ... I love the pillows they show on the site, and what you did with the shirts. Or maybe the vinyl decor ... that could be fun too.

Kris and Sam said...

I would definitely make some sweet wall art to go in my baby's nursery. But the fun would definitely not stop there!

Robyn said...

Yay! Yay! Yay! I was hoping this was the "big surprise!" I have been drooling over this lovely little machine for months now. My head is spinning with all of the things I could use it for, but I really think it would come in handy at the card making parties I host a few times a year! The girls always grumble at me when they have to cut out intricate shapes for the card designs, so maybe this would stop that! :) Ooh, and you will be announcing the winner on my birthday...how great would that present be!?

rbruun05@gmail.com

Alicia said...

Oh, I SOOOO need this machine for my baby girl's first birthday! No more cutting cupcake wrappers and bunting by hand. Fingers crossed!

eidolons said...

I have three kids - I'd never have to worry about birthday invitations again! Or thank you cards! Or holiday cards! Or.. (:

Diana said...

I went to a class at Paper Source on how to use the Silhouette and let me tell you, it was so addictive! I would love to have one for my own personal use. I really love that you can use it to etch glass...so neat! Fingers crossed that I'm the lucky winner!

Alicia said...

I would be all over nursery decorating with it. I've only got 3 months till I have a baby girl and I've got a lot of blank wall space!

Small Town Soap said...

I would for sure use the heat transfer to make T-shirts for my family's produce business... and a ton of other stuff!

From a glimpse at all the comments, I see I'm not alone in saying it would be hard to chose. But since I have a little one on the way, I'm sure my first try would be to create one of those adorable onesies like on your blog and their website. Love them!

i would def use the silouhette for fun gifts and do get my house finallly decorated with vinyl decor. oh this would be a great thing to win!

Shae & Kristin Reber said...

I would do the glass etching and etch all of my baking dishes. We have a family farm and it's the womens responsiblity to bring lunch everyday. There is always so much confusion over which dishes belong to who or if they belong to the farm. I would probably do extra's for wedding or christmas gifts also. Oh, and maybe etch the glass in some picture frames for gifts too!
THANKS!

Were moving soon and our little one will finally have her own nursery, instead of sharing with mom and dad. So, I think I would definitely take some inspiration from their vinyl decor examples and jazz up her nursery into something unbelievably special:D

As the youth & children's minister at my church, there are SO MANY projects I can do (and do better!) with this machine!

Also: Vinyl home decor. LOVE.

Wendy said...

It looks awesome! I was going to say that I definitely would try heat transfers first, but then I saw the glass etching idea on their website, and can think of a million great gifts to make doing that too. Thanks for the giveaway!

JenFink said...

Great Giveaway! I would use it for making transfers for t-shirts and I would also use it for scrapbooking!

Can't wait to see who wins!

Sarah said...

I'm in love already! I would decorate my classroom and rock those heat transfers!!

Heidi said...

How could I pick just one? I like the idea of etching your name on glass pans and cooking supplies for when you take them to pot lucks. I would also definitely make some vinyl art around the house and to label all the stuff I take to horse shows!

Holly said...

Party supplies for my son's 6th birthday! (if he ever decides on a theme! I'm rooting for robots)

Vanessa said...

I'd use the heat transfer for clothes, vinyl for wall decals, and maybe try freezer paper to paint on fabric too! Thanks for a great giveaway!

Jen @ Letsmakeitours said...

Oh how I would LOVE one of these! The first thing I would like to try is making vinyl decals. The heat transfer option looks really cool too!

Aidenn said...

Glass etching all the way! I love the idea of making Christmas banana bread loaves for family in glass loaf pans and etch their names on the bottom or sides. I am smitten, and I cannot wait to see the lucky winner of this awesome giveaway!!

Paula said...

I would love to do the glass etching and rhinestones.

You are so lucky you have a Silhouette! I would love to win one! I would make all kinds of things - the possibilities are endless - wall art, cupcake toppers, all kinds of crafty things... and I could go on and on!

Boss said...

I'd use it to cut out stuff. And then I'd use it to cut out some more. And I'd keep using it until the Silhouette (and I) couldn't cut another slice. I'm sorry I can't get more specific than that; I just can't decide where to start.

Michelle said...

I would LOVE to do some glass etching on jars/pans and, definitely use this for some heat transfer projects!!!

cooperl788 said...

I'm a huge scrapbooker, so I know I could use it for a million different layouts I'm working on. But really, my daughter's 2nd birthday party is coming up, and I could really use it to make her invitations and party decorations.

That is big! How generous! I would love to own one- I think it would be great for cutting out felt pieces for my daughter's felt boards, cutting freezer paper stencils (bye bye exacto knife!) and lots of fun paper crafts.

Amy said...

Sooo many ideas!!! First and Foremost would be tons of iron on outfits for my identical twin nieces! It would make it so much easier to do matching outfits! and of course vinyl cutouts to do glass etching for Christmas Presents for my huge family (mom is 1 of 11 kids!) doing my hand is toooo hard! Looooove this product and your Blog!
