Silhouette Giveaway

Aw yeah baby, it’s that time of year again! It is time to try your hand at winning something that might just be on this year’s Christmas list! Today, I have the privilege of giving away a brand new Silhouette Portrait. It might only weigh 3.5 lbs, but it packs a powerful punch when it comes to crafting!

For those of you unfamiliar with the Silhouette Portrait, this fantastic little machine allows you to cut any font or design from your PC or Mac to use in countless projects. The computer software needed is included with your Silhouette Portrait. I adore my Silhouette and have used it for years. I especially love that I can use my own fonts and graphics and can also purchase inexpensive graphic designs online from the Silhouette store. Below is a small sampling of projects that other talented bloggers have created using their Silhouettes. So cute!

And how adorable are these paper ornaments? I need to purchase this graphic for some additional ornaments for my boys’ tree this year.

    I’m so excited about this contest! I would love a Silhouette but have never been able to justify the expense ;) (at least to my husband). I’ve been obsessed with making etched glass containers lately and this would come in handy…

  2. TaraO says

    Awesome giveaway! I’d first make some labels for organizing my home (using the vinyl). And then I’d use it to it out the alphabet to help my daughter learn her letters.So many ways to use it!

  3. says

    Beth, this is the only item on my list! Thank you so much for this giveaway. I would use it for pillows and signs and I’m sure many other projects. x

  4. Meagan says

    I would die to have this. I’ve been using and old school cricut from like 5 years ago and just this weekend needed to do some crafting for my daughter.s Hello Kitty b-day party. This would give me so much more flexibility and options over what I have now.

  5. says

    What a great giveaway! Keeping my fingers crossed I win! Would love to make a stencil for a sign out of old barn wood first….then the possibilities are endless it seems. Have wanted one of these for quite some time.

  6. says

    Woooow! Amazing giveaway! I would love to have one of this for my handmade greeting cards and wall decals and other handmade stuff for the home!

  7. Kim C says

    I would dearly love to win one of these! I would love to start making subway art and other text
    projects without having to use my copier to print then transfering to stencil plastic, hand cutting
    then stenciling. What a huge time saver this would be! I hope I win!

  8. Becca says

    I would probably make Christmas gifts with this first…but then use it to create some cute things I’ve seen on Pinterest.

  9. Louise Hughes says

    I would make paper garlands. I have been restricted by my limited collection of punches, and it would be great to have access to an infinite number of shapes.

  10. Lisa McD says

    stencils to etch glass ornaments, subway art, gift tags, “frame” for my daughter’s full-length wall mirror, monogram for front door, etc etc etc :)

  11. says

    I have been wanting to add typography to a pallet creation I made this past summer, but using Word on my computer just isn’t enticing me to finish it. :) This would be perfect to complete the project, and I’m sure start many more! Thanks for hosting!

  12. Barbara Ullman says

    My granddaughter and I would be able to make wonderful and special crafts together — what a way to make memories

  13. says

    Oh what a generous giveaway. I think I have entered every single time Silhouette gives one of these away. . perhaps this is the one :) I still want to cut out vinyl birds and put them on the door frames and window sills and baseboards of my home. . they would make me smile everytime I walked by.

  14. says

    I have a window that I plan to hang in my family room. I will be painting it with milk paint for a chippy look and would love to etch the window panes with the word “GATHER” . The Silhouette is on the top of my Christmas. My daughters and I could make the most amazing projects together! : )

  15. Homes says

    I would so love a Silhouette! I would make labels for all my pantry goods – kind of boring and predictable, but right now they’re just Scotch tape and pen – not good!

  16. Denise from Savannah says

    I’ve been holding off buying a Silhouette, but am anxious to get started using the free shapes I’ve been saving for months … thanks for the contest!

  17. Georgene says

  27. says

    Girlfriend Gifts!! Large glass cylinders with their initial or last names on them so they could use it for any season.

  45. Christy Thompson says

    Right now, the thing that is on my mind is fall leaves. We have the tradition of writing things we’re thankful for on leaf shapes during the month of November and sticking them to the wall to remind us of all our blessings. I’ve been cutting them out by hand and so the Silhouette would be such a hand saver! I’d also love to use it for Christmas projects, gift ideas and trying to get caught up on my scrapbooking once the holidays are over! This would be AWESOME!

  46. kristin says

    If I got this I would finish my room and start turning the second bed room in to a nursery! And I would let my sistersand mother add extra fun to there houses and use it this year for our cards and tree.

  87. says

    oh my goodness so excited :) Best. Giveaway. EVER.

    I have scrapbooked for years, but when the Sizzix, and then the Cricut, and now this came out I got overwhelmed and shut myself out of everything because it was so hard to keep up with how fast the industry was exploding. THEN I got on Pinterest, and realized just how far behind the times I was! LOL Now, not knowing how to get into this whole DIY thing.. I’ve wondered which is the best new tool for DIY home decor/craftiness/scrapbooking to invest in.

    LOVE what you’ve done here – Can’t even COUNT the ways I’d use it! From labeling my baking products to my canning jars, to my home made signs and all that jazz…. I’m giddy with anticipation!

    I would love to make a shabby sign for my sunroom, and some subway art, and would monogram everything that didn’t get away from me!

  155. says

    I know I’ll be disqualified coz I don’t live in the US but I just wanted to share that I bought one sometime ago and only got to use it for one project. Then it broke down and I couldn’t get it fixed because there were no service centers here in the UAE. I lost my money and I couldn’t afford to get it shipped back to the US for repairs and then pay again for return shipping. now there are so many projects I wished I could do like making decals for the house or screen printing patterns for some gifts I want to make. Wished silhouette would have a branch here in Dubai soon.

    I’ve been posting this comment on most silhouette giveaway posts hoping silhouette America will listen to my pleas…

  156. Kristy Skoy says

    I would like to make a sign that I designed and hang it in my home for Christmas! I would love to win one so I can make this sign!

    I have some signs for my laundry room I’ve been wanting to make as soon as I win one of these awesome little machines!

  160. Jessica Wohld says

    This is so generous of Silhouette! If I were to win the Portrait I would most likely start out by making my toddler a few busy bags and books to entertain herself with while I teach her big brothers. Fun!

  161. Jill Frankenfield says

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! I would LOVE to be the proud owner of a Silhouette Cameo! I have a list a mile long what I need, yes, NEED, to make on one of these babies! Never owned any type of cutter before, so anything not standing still too long in my home would become ‘Silhouette-a-fied’, including the dog and cats! Maybe even the hubby (if I can catch him)! Thanks, again, and have a wonderful holiday season!

  162. Wendy Lynch says

    I’ve been wanting to try my hand at the vinyl. Seems to really be popular these days. I’ve also been thinking about what I could make in multiples – like pencil toppers, cupcake picks, that kind of thing. Really the possibilities are endless! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  163. Tricia says

    We just moved into a new apartment, and I’d love to use the Silhouette to make labels for my pantry, maybe a wall cling, matting to frame our pictures, and the list goes on. :)

  166. Dawn says

    Oh the things I could create with 1 of these machines! <3 I have always wanted a machine like this, but raising 3 kids in this economy is hard enough…we definitely can't afford to buy 1 right now! I am in the middle of re~doing a space in our basement for my craft room & could make some crazy cute labels for everything! =)

  167. says

    I’m real big on monogramming right now, so I’d whip up some type of tee or glassware, just something with a monogram! How exciting – I hope I win!!!!

    I couldn’t believe it when I opened the email and found the blog post. I’ve just spent the day looking at and researching the Silhouette products. I am just starting a new business and I am looking for a small cutter that will work on vinyl to make decals. I love that I can use my own designs and fonts.

  186. Joyce says

    Oh goodness, there are so many things I’d cut with this! I was just looking last night for info on which brand to buy. Right now, I would do New Years 2013 numbers for my front door.

    Woops, I thought my first comment didn’t work, now I see it. Could you please remove my duplicate? Sorry!!!

  196. Kimber says

    I’ve been wanting a silhouette for a while now!! It would be such a huge help with my craft projects! Hand cutting stuff is getting to be a pain (literately and figuratively).

  197. Lisa says

    I don’t have anything specific right now that I would make. But I do know that it would be nice to finally have an awesome machine like this to do most of my crafting for me so that I don’t have to do it all by hand! :)
