Silhouette Cameo Giveaway


Note:  This giveaway is now closed.

Congratulations to lucky number #274 Aimee Jongejan!
Aimee, I’ve sent you an email!

For the rest of you…stay tuned.  I will be posting details for the Black Friday Silhouette deal in a new post very soon.  For those of you already mapping out your shopping strategy, I’ll tell you that Silhouette is offering a 30% discount on the entire store starting on Black Friday, and with a special OBB code you can get another 10% on top of that.  So yes- you can snag a Cameo for 40% off!  They will however sell out; there are limited quantities, so think about it and if you want one, be ready to pull the trigger!  All the deets are coming soon!

If you’re not familiar with Silhouette, it’s a digital craft cutter.  It’s sort of like a computer printer, but instead of having ink, it has a blade, so it actually cuts out designs.

Using the Silhouette software on your computer, you can design just about anything you want.  The machine itself comes with a library of 50 exclusive digital designs, and you can purchase from a huge library online.  One thing I love is that there are no cartridges, like some other craft cutters use, everything is online and it’s so quick and easy to get shapes, fonts, and projects.  It’s literally about 1 click and it’s ready to go.  It also cuts any custom font that is in your computer already.

You might remember last year when we gave away a Silhouette SD.  So what’s so great about the Cameo?  It’s bigger and better folks!  The new Cameo cuts paper up to 12 inches wide and up to ten feet long.  Let me show you some things you can do with it.

It’s a scrapbooker’s dream, obviously

But you can do so much more with paper.  One of my favorite things to do with my Silhouette is make 3-D designs, like these little goodie containers.  These literally took less than 10 minutes to whip up!

And I love these advent calendars that have been popping up on craft blogs

And foodie fun galore…

The machine can also cut heat transfer material, and make rhinestone templates so you can embellish clothing and accessories

Our friend Ashley made these aprons for Kate and me using my handwriting and doodles that Amanda turned into a font you can download!  Love love these.

Then I stole Ashley’s idea and made shirts for my kiddos

You can also create stencils and use fabric paint.  I love this valentine bunting from Crap I’ve Made.

The options are endless when it comes to vinyl.  I’ve done a lot of projects at home with vinyl and I love it for little things, like labeling

You can put it right on your walls (and easily remove it too)

And you can even replace the cutting blade with pens and have it draw these cool designs.  I make a lot of cards this way, it makes me look super artistic! (The black floral design is actually drawn on with pen)

  106. I have a Silhouette SD and I would LOVE a Cameo to cut out larger things….there’s just so much you can with this amazing tool and being able do those amazing things on a larger scale would be phenomenal! Thanks for the giveaway!

  107. I would LOVE this because I live overseas on a military base where our options are so limited. To be able to make so many different things would be too KOOL!!!

  108. I would absolutely LOVE to have one of these! There are so many things you can do with it that I might have a difficult time deciding what to do first. For some reason the vinyl application intrigues me so I might start there. Then again there are the paper cut-outs. Decisions, decisions!

  109. I want the Silhouette Cameo because I am expecting my second child… Ten and a half years after the first! I was very poor when I had my first child, worked too many hours, and never had the time or money to create the momentos that would mean so much to us already. We’re at a better point in our lives now, and we’re being careful to cherish every memory, even before the baby gets here. The Cameo would be a great way to create scrapbooking perfection, and I could use it to enhance my first son’s life too, making decorations for his room and classroom and allowing us to craft together!

  110. I would love one!! I am going into Grad school to get my Masters in Ed. This would just make decorating a classroom sooo much easier and fun! Plus I scrapbook and make lots of fun things for my friends. I would probably use it everyday. 🙂

  111. Oh my gosh, that would be so amazing! I can think of so many projects for that. Stuff for my school room, my kids bedroom decor, and so much more!!

  112. Oh Wow! I would love to win this. I have so many things I would want to do with it, but I think I would start with the advent calendar. What a great way to kick of the holiday season, and maybe my kids will be fooled into thinking I am crafty 🙂

  113. I’d love one to help with decorating our new home, and I know my girls would love the rhinestones!

  114. I have been wanting on of these for years!!! My first project would be an advent calendar. I have a million pinned on pintrest and I am just dieing to make one =)

  115. This is soooo cool! I would love to have one for all kinds of projects…decorating, scrapbooking, kitchen goodies, partyware, etc. The possibilities are endless!

  116. I’ve decided to learn how to sew. It’s one of those things I wished I would have listened to my mom about when I was a kid. I think I would use the Silhouette for making pillows and aprons to start.

  117. I admit that I have yet to jump on the scrapbook wagon because, well, I just don’t have the patience! BUT, I would love to win this because I would like to try my hand at vinyl stuff to put on some walls. I admit, kinda scary, but this machine sure would make it easier!! 🙂 Love your blog!

  118. Oh my gosh this looks fun. I would like to try and make aprons as well as vinyl wall art transfers for my home!

  119. The first thing that I would do is use the Cameo to make some teacher Christmas gifts! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  120. Oh goodness, what would I do with one of these? First off I would imagine all the different projects that would be made easier with the Silhouette including projects I’ve already done to things I see on Pinterest. I mean talk about inspiration heaven… Anyway, I think the most realistic thing that I would actually use this for first would be to put designs on clothes for my nieces, nephews, and my boys.

  121. What wouldn’t I do with a silhouette? There are too many cute things you can do. I love the vinyl and the cute goodies decorations. What an amazing machine!

  122. I would love one of these. The possibilites are endless but I would start with some vinyl creations!

  123. So cool! There are so many times I think of a vinyl project I would love to make, but having to order the vinyl stops me. I would love to be able to create it all by myself! That’s called being self reliant – hehe!

  124. I am in the process of trying to save up to buy one of these (I asked that my b-day & Christmas gifts be money towards one)! I have a few things I would like to do with it…1) Some fun games out of fabric! 2) Shirts for my 5 kids. I could go on & on………

  125. Oh my goodness, I would love one of these! I’d make cards, use it for scrapbooking, birthday posters…crossing my fingers!

  126. I would love a silhouette cameo. I would embellish clothing as I sew a lot. Looks like so much fun!

  127. I would love to win one of these! I think I would pick the heat transfer kit. I would love to make some matching shirts for my 2 year old and baby on the way! Thanks for the opportunity <3

  128. I would *love* one for scrapbooking, card making and cute food gift labels! Yay! The first thing I would make would be a Christmas advent calendar!
