Awesome Silhouette Giveaway {$300 Value} ~

I am absolutely thrilled - seriously doing back flips (okay, not seriously I would probably crack my head, but jumping up and down for sure). Here is what Santa (aka Silhouette) delivered Christmas Eve:



Silhouette you must have intercepted my letter to Santa - because this bad boy was on there!  I am so excited to have the opportunity to try out this machine. And not only do I get to try it out, I also get to offer one to one of my fabulous readers! Yes, for you!

Here is just a sampling of all of the fabulous things the Silhouette can do:

Paper Projects

Heat Transfer Rhinestones

Adhesive Vinyl 

Heat Transfer for custom apparel

Temporary Tattoos


Due to it being Christmas and all, I didn't have a ton of time to really play around, but I set it up (super easy), and I made my first cut (again, super easy) to dress up my Mac...(just remember, it was crunch time here - it was Christmas day, but I just had to test it out! And luckily my kiddos were playing with toys and my hubby was taking a cat nap on the couch).



This machine is super easy to use and comes with 50 exclusive digital designs, but if you want more you can buy them on their online store for as low as .14 cents a piece with a subscription. LOVE IT! I really love, that there are no cartridges and you get to buy just the images YOU want.


 I did get a little lost just scrolling through all of the great images...my mind was whirling with project ideas.
AND they also have free image downloads on their BLOG every week! Where you can also find great project ideas and tips for your Silhouette.




Now here is the part you have been waiting for...

One of you lucky readers, will be getting all of this!
  • Silhouette machine
  • Software for Windows XP/Vista
  • Power cable, USB cable
  • 2 Cutting mats (one for thick media, one for thin media)
  • Cutting blade
  • $10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store
Whooo, whooo!

**GIVEAWAY CLOSED**
**Here is how to enter (be sure to leave a separate comment for each entry)**
1. Follow this blog (or let me know you already do!)
2. Be a follower of the Silhouette blog
3. Leave a comment on the Silhouette blog
4. Tell me what YOU would do first with this lovely machine
5. Blog, Tweet or Facebook about this awesome giveaway

Be sure to tell your friends, just think if they have one, you can use it!
Good Luck!

Silhouette also has an amazing New Year's offer starting today and going until January 1st - you get to purchase the Silhouette SD for $175 (I know, hold the phone right?) with a monthly online subscription commitment to the Silhouette online store! This is a huge savings, this bad boy is normally $299 - so, if you have been wanting one (I know you have) be sure to take advantage of this savings by the 1st. 
All you have to do is enter "INSPIRE" as your promo code.
I can't wait to have a bit more time to create, but I am going to have to use a little restraint, or else I just might "Silhouette-ize" my whole house!

Patrice said...

I left a comment on the Silhouette blog. (But did not mention LOLcats. Hey, I try to keep my weirdness confined to one blog at a time.)

Patrice said...

What's the first thing I'd make if I won a Silhouette SD? Um, um... well, heck, what WOULDN'T I make? (Seriously, if I can't make my own Random.Org which draws only numbers 1-4 [heh], I guess the first thing I'd like to try is some vinyl subway art.)

What a great idea to do something to put on your laptop, Chelsea! I love that idea! I might copy that idea, but I'd also like to do something {either just a word or a quote} that I could put on the glass of a frame and incorporate into my family pictures.
