Okay you guys, I am THRILLED about today’s giveaway. I really could not be more excited about this! I have wanted some kind of cutting tool FOREVER. I debated, went back and forth, and came close quite a few times to purchasing one, but kept putting it off. There have been times when I’ve been in the middle of a project, painstakingly cutting out tiny letters, and wishing for something to make it easier and faster. How glad am I that I waited!

I was impressed by the Silhouette as soon as I started to see them around…no cartridges to buy, you could use fonts you already had (of which I have at least a million), and it hooked right up to your own computer! So, when Silhouette wanted to not only send me one for my review, but give away another one to one of my fabulous readers, to say I was ecstatic is putting it mildly. Mine came in the mail 2 days before Christmas (Merry Christmas to me!), and next week’s tutorials will be highlighting the Silhouette, and the projects I’ve been able to make with it.

I adore vinyl. I just do. I love to be organized and have labels for everything. (My son is worried that I’m going to label his underwear. Lol.) Vinyl is perfect for so many projects, and the Silhouette makes it easy.

Love paper crafts? How fun to be able to make your own cards for birthdays, thank yous, and thinking of yous? Or, add a special touch to birthday parties and holidays.

Want to add your own personal touch to fabric, like t-shirts for your kids, throw pillows, and more? I definitely have a few of these on my list of projects! I also love the glass etching possibilities.

The Silhouette can do all of this, and more! Can you believe it? I KNOW!!!! Silhouette is giving one of YOU a Silhouette of your very own, valued at $299.
