Winner of the Silhouette CAMEO


Oh. My.


You guys are just as excited about the new Silhouette CAMEO as I am.





In case you were out of town, taking a blog break, or completely oblivious to my post about the new CAMEO last week……..go here to check it out.  It is the funnest little machine.  And can easily become your new best friend (who is never sassy and only tells you that you’re so lovely and creative) if you let her.


And after a few days and thousands of entries (wow!)…… has selected a winner for me. 

[Can you imagine if I had to choose just one deserving person?  No fair.  There’s too many of you.  By the way, if you know me personally……… you can come share my little machine.  Seriously, I don’t mind at all.  Or we can sit down and talk while I convince you why you may need your own! :)]


Anyway, let’s see who selected:

Kristi Hales says:

I would love to use this for stencil making for shirts and household uses. Since I enter these constantly and have never won anything in my life, I would be over the top excited and give it to my self for Christmas. I think I would be in heaven.



Congrats Kristi!  Wow, wow, wow………….yep, off to heaven for you!

Now tell your family and friends they don’t need to get you anything for Christmas.  You’re all set! ;)

(I will be emailing you shortly with more info.)

  1. Kristi Hales says:

    Any idea when they are mailing out the Silhouette that I won on this wonderful blog site?

  2. Erica says:

    Ashley, I was wondering if it was possible to use just any store bought adhesive vinyl cut down to size instead of the adhesive vinyl from the silhouette store?

    1. Ashley says:

      If it’s for a craft cutter, it should work just fine. I buy my vinyl here: and it always works perfectly (and it’s not the actual Silhouette brand).

      Hope that helps!


    2. Erica says:

      Does the same go for the Heat transfer material? Sorry for all the questions:)

    3. Ashley says:

      I haven’t used the heat transfer material from Expressions Vinyl but I’m pretty sure it would work just fine. They are a really good company (I know one of the girls that runs it) and use all of their products themselves. That’s why they started selling it.

      Anyway, hope that helps and have fun with your projects!


  3. Erika says:

    I’ve been looking for it online as well…and since the product was announced and it has continued to say “not available online” since then. Suggestions?

    1. Ashley says:

      Bummer……..I guess they’re sold out and I had no clue. Sorry about that!

  4. Kristi Hales says:

    Oh my goodness. I am soooooo excited. This will be the best Christmas ever. I never have won anything and I am totally amazed that I did! Thank you sooooooo much. I love this website and I love the neat things I learn on it…..YEAH. P.S. my husband is soooo off the hook, that he will also love love love this site……..!!!!!!!

  5. Jen says:

    I’m in the same boat as Angela…guessing it’s no longer available?

    1. Ashley says:

      Darn it, I guess they’re sold out and I had no clue. Sorry about that!


  6. By Nicole says:

    Totally bummed it wasn’t me ;-)

    Guess it’s staying on my Christmas list!

  7. Sarah Conley says:

    Lucky Lucky!
    Congrats :)

  8. Kelley says:

    Congrats Kristi! Your one lucky lady :)

  9. Angela Broxterman says:

    The site says the cameo is not available online! :( Should I assume they sold out and we can’t use your coupon code?

      Darn it, I guess they’re sold out and I had no clue. Sorry about that!
