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!

    I am starting to really be swayed by the idea that it all connects to the computer and you don’t have to have many cartridges…I have “the other” machine and I love it, but am limited by only the cartridges I have purchased.
