Silhouette Portrait GIVEAWAY!

ACK!!! I am so stinkin’ excited to day because I get to giveaway a Silhouette Portrait™. Wahoo!

The Silhouette Portrait™ is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 8″ wide and 10 feet long. The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials.

And as a bonus, there will be a Black Friday sale too. On Friday I get to announce the killer deal they have for you. If you are not the lucky winner, you still can have a Portrait or CAMEO at a discount :)

Here is how to enter:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

***Open to US residents only***

Winner will be announced Friday November 23rd at 12:01 am EST (the same day as the Black Friday sale is announced)

The winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be selected.

  1. TaraO says

    Oh, there are so many great uses I’ve seen! First I would make labels to organize my home. I would also use the vinyl to decorate my newborn son’s nursery!

  2. Homes says

    I would so love a Silhouette. I would make labels for all my pantry goods – kind of predictable, but right now they’re just Scotch tape and pen – not good!

  3. says

    We have to label everything for our two NaturallySweetSisters that have type 1 diabetes. Instead of random sharpie markers, I would LOVE to be able to create beautifully stenciled decals. Oh heart be still! This would definately make T1D a whole lot prettier!!!

  4. Jennifer O. says

    There are SO many things that I would love to make with the Silhouette, but the first thing I want to make are these beautiful glittery snowflakes that I saw on another blog that were absolutely gorgeous!!!

    What a great giveaway!! :)

  5. says

    How generous is Silhouette giving away so many machines. I enter every single time. Perhaps this will be my time :) I still want to cut out vinyl birds and stick them on the door frames and window sills and baseboards of my home. They would make me smile every time I walked by.

  6. Julie M. says

    I would love to try to make some cool signs like my friend Lisa tells me about. She does amazing things with her’s!

  7. says

    What an awesome giveaway! The very first thing I would make would be a simple banner and then the skies the limit. Finger’s crossed I might win, but in the meantime Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family :)

  8. Annie says

    I’m always torn between whether I would jump into stencils with vinyl or if I would go the fabric applique route. I don’t know if it would be the first thing I did, but I would also love to cut paper for seasonal decorations/ornaments! Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

  9. Anna Gascey says

    I want to make my daughter a mirror for her room with frosted letters that say ” A smile is the best thing you can wear” . So she can see it every morning as she gets ready for school.

  10. says

    Hmm, this is a tough one because I have seen so many cute things I would like to make! I would probably make something for my kids…..I have a son and we are expecting our daughter around Christmas, so I would have to start making some cute things for my kids! :)

  11. Tracey Whitney says

    Oh my gosh what a great prize! I would be able to do some of the amazing projects on Pinterest! Thank you for the giveaway!

  12. Mollie says

    I would love to win this Silhouette because my little boys and I LOVE to make greeting cards and other art projects for our family far away, place them in beautiful packages, and mail them off. We think it really brightens someone’s day when they receive a cheery package in the mail with a sweet sentiment ‘just because’. Right now, we use a lot of scrapbook paper and paper cutters, but the three of us would be OVER THE MOON if we won a Silhouette because it means we could take our ‘cheer spreading’ projects to the very next level! We live roughly 700 miles away from our family (and I’m a single mom!) so it’s a very important part of every week for us to let people know we are thinking about them in a beautiful way. Our recipients would be so grateful and impressed with our new projects if we won! (Especially grandma!) Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  13. Cassie says

    I would LOVE to win one for a dear friend of mine! She is one of the most talented and crafty people I know! Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. Kelli Wood says

    I would make something for Christmas and something for my kitchen wall!! Thank you for having this awesome giveaway!

  15. Trina says

    I would definitely make Christmas cards AND a sign for my powder room door, so people would stop going into the closet…LOL!

  16. Glo. says

    This has been on my just-out-of-reach Wish List for a long time! I have an entire Pinterest folder full of project ideas, but the first to make would be the monogrammed glass blocks filled with lights as Christmas presents for several special friends!

  17. Christian says

    My mind is swirling with what I would do first…but since it is quickly approaching the Christmas season, I would probably use it to make some designs for Christmas throw pillows. :)

  18. Nichole says

    Well … Christmas is right around the corner and I can think of lots of fun little gifts we could make with vinyl!

  19. Angel Skelton says

    Awesome contest!! I have been wanting to incorporate some of my Dad’s old hand-written sermons into my decor, and the Silhouette is the perfect tool for the job!!
    Thanks for the contest!
    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Angel Skelton

  20. Traci says

    I would make some sweet signs for my laundry room, then make labels for all my baking containers, initial picture for the girls room, a cool Mommy t-shirt for me, Christmas decorations….Oh boy, So many ideas!!! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!!!

  21. Erika Douglas says

    Wow! If I won this, my Christmas would be done. How awesome would that be? I liked Silhoette’s pinterest page ages ago and just lust from afar.

  22. Deb C says

    thnank you for this opportunity. I would make family name signs for christmas gifts. Our family has come on some hard times this last yr and homemade craft gifts are all that we will be able to affors. The silhouette would make my gifts look great and make me feel good about giving them.

  23. Erika Douglas says

    I would make labels for my kids rooms and things. Then the hubby can help clean and know where everything goes!

  24. Cara says

    Where do I start on what I would do first?? I have so many things, but the first thing would be Christmas tags for presents.

  25. Nikki says

    I would absolutely LOVE to win this! My home would be one HUGE thought of should I say a house full of thought(s) after that! My kids have wanted to get me one for years, but it would be wonderful to get one free!

  26. Liz says

    If I were to win the Silhouette Portrait™ I believe I would be blessed to just make anything – maybe even gift it to another – since it’d be soemthing they love – and I just think looks cool.

  27. says

    I would make labels for Christmas gift tags and I so want to try to make my own custom cupcake wrappers for upcoming birthday parties.
    Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  28. Dana says

    I would love, love, love to win one! Have been wanting one for quite awhile! Like it soooo much better than the Cricut! The possibilties are endless, and my project list is growing: pillows, signs, wall art, all kinds of crafts! Good luck to all! Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!

  36. Stacey says

    I would STENCIL ALL THE THINGS! Actually, I have a HUGE window in my bathroom that I’ve been dying to etch (giving us a bit more privacy). That is a big project, but it would probably be the first one. :)

  37. says

    Oooh, if only! What an awesome giveaway! I would etch my Pyrex sets right away and create some vinyl decor for my new niece or nephews nursery. :-) Thanks for sharing!!

  38. Lisa P. says

    I sparkly snowflake…then I’d make a million more…too fun!! Thank you for sharing your fun activities with all of us!

  39. says

    My very first project would be to turn the nursery at our church into a more “grown-up” children’s lounge. We would like to replace the old teddy bear wallpaper border with some really cool vinyl animal silhouettes (think modern Noah’s ark).

  40. Allyson says

    I have wanted to work with the vinyl to make fun signs and activites. There is so much you can do with it. I would love to win!

  41. Naomi says

    I think the first thing I’d bust out are some Christmas decorations! Then I’d see what I could do about decorating my baby girl’s room! And then doing some crafts with her too! There is just so much that you can do with one of these things!

  42. Kellie says

    I think I would label and re-label everything in my house, starting with a painted tin I keep my tea bags in. It’s begging for a cute label.

  43. Janine M. says

  44. Kelie says

I am always printing letters or words off my printer then comes the tedious work of cutting it to make a ‘stencil’ for all my wood crafts!!! Next vinyl stencils for my glass etching!!!! This has been on my wishlist from the first moment I heard of the Silhouette machines!!

  54. Kim Brandenburg says

    The first thing I would make is a scrapbook for my mom. She’s an avid quilter, and she has tons of pictures of quilts she’s made, but all of the photos are laying in a box. I think a photo album/scrapbook would be a perfect way to organize her pictures!

  55. Mandie Robinson says

    I would love to win one of these!!! The crafty DIY “pins” on my Pinterest board would actually become a reality rather than an idea or fantasy!!! :))

  56. Amanda Estroff says

  113. EdenClaire says

    I’m a huge ceiling person. To me not giving my ceiling some kind of flair is like getting all dolled up and not combing my hair. I would use the Silhouette to create handwritten, vinyl letters to write a letter in the hallway to my upstairs. Kinda like the whole handwriting on the rug, except on my ceiling.

  114. Rosie says

    if I won, I start with typography for my family portrait gallery wall int he dining room. :) I’ve been putting off just buying some on Esty becuase I’d rather have the machine and DIMyself. :)
