Silhouette promotion, review and GIVEAWAY!! (closed)

I'm so excited for today!! I have been so excited for this day for a long time, keeping it in has made me want to burst! Before I get ahead of myself, let's start with an awesome promotion that Silhouette is having this week.

Silhouette Electronic Cutting Tool

This week, January 17-22 Silhouette is having an awesome promotion on premium vinyl and their Silhouette machine. You can get the machine, two rolls of premium vinyl, 1 roll of transfer tape and a home decor CD all for $225!! That is a $395 value, wow!! Just enter the code "SIMPLE" when you check out. Don't need the machine? Well their premium vinyl is 25% this week too, just put in "SIMPLE".

The premium vinyl is awesome, it's strong enough to use it outside but gentle enough to use it indoors!

Here's what I did with it, put my family on my car!

Now, for what I think about the Silhouette machine. I have had it for about 3 weeks now and I absolutely LOVE it!! I've had a CriCut for six months now and am planning on selling it because I love the Silhouette so much more! Why you ask? Well here's what I love about the Silhouette:

-It's made for the computer, so I can use all of my super cute fonts with it. Because the program is made by Silhouette the program is super user friendly and when I have a problem I can just go to the Silhouette website. It's so easy that I have figured things out in minutes and I really don't know that much about computers.

-I love that you can buy images off of their online store and they are only $.99. I can handle spending a couple of dollars rather than $40 or more on a cartridge.

-Using vinyl with it! Since it doesn't use a mat when it cuts it, what it looks like on the computer, it's going to cut like that. I don't have to transfer it to another paper and worry about the letters being straight or not.

-I love how the program tells me what blade I need to use and how it automatically sets the speed and thickness based off of what I am cutting.

Overall I have just loved it! I have done more with it for my scrapbooking in the three weeks than I ever did with my CriCut.

Here are a few things that I have created with it:
Premium Vinyl:
Valentine's subway art
Family on my car
Coat Rack

Place mat bags
Boys' shirts


Paper:



Now for what you and me have been waiting for. The GIVEAWAY!! I'm so excited about this that I can't even contain myself. One lucky winner is going to win a Silhouette machine!!

Beth said...

Love your projects!

The first thing I would do is tell YOU Thank you...then I'd go over to the Silhouette blog/site and tell THEM thank you.

Then when the machine got to my house, I'd start by making a sign that says, "Today, I'm going to be happier than a bird with a french fry." I don't know why, but that phrase speaks to me. :)

After that I think I'd go nutso making shirts for everyone for Valentine's Day (also my birthday).

there, she is now a year old and I really need to update it. Then I would work on some vinyl for all 3 of my greatgranddaughters. One is into
Tinkerbell, one Minnie and Mickey Mouse and one

Scrapp'n Nana said...

What would I do IF I ever won one of these. First thing I would do is jump up and down and cry. I want a NEW Cricut or a NEW cutting machine so bad. I take care of my terminally ill husband and I can't be out of our home for long time so I set and scrapbook and make cards. I have a very old Cricut (I think the very first one every made, first one ever sold) yes that old. I can make do but it may die on me any day. I would be making things like scary.

Thanks for the chance of winning and sharing this with us. I put this on both places.

Sincerely
Donna

Pamela said...

I am a new stay-at-home mom, and we could use a little extra income at the moment (who doesn't?). Looking at what you've created and what is possible on the Silhouette site, I think I could create some fantastic items for an Etsy shop...of course I'd have a blast doing it! I think some custom car families would be first-I'm thinking I'd draw a quail or roadrunner family for my birding friends, a frog and tadpole family for me, and quilts on a line for my sister...oh, and t-shirts...I'd better stop before I ruin my keyboard drooling!

I like the fact that the Silhouette connects to the computer so that you don't need to buy any cartridges. I'd like to try using vinyl and the tshirt transfers.
Thanks for this great giveaway.

Jo said...

I think the question here is what WOULDN'T I use the Silhouette machine for?!
Heat transfers on my kids clothes - first thing I'd do it label all of their stuff for school! Then I'd move on to organization and labeling things in the home, playroom, closets, pantry etc. I'd love to try the glass etching vinyl too.
Then I'd use it for any and all crafts, card making etc.
And of course, I love how you put your family on your car - I would so do that too! How cute!

So fingers and toes are crossed here that you pick me!!

I have been drooling of this machine for a little while. I would be all over making tee shirt transfers for my little boy. He is 4 and rarely likes designs from stores.

Also I would be making vinyl decals for my new house.

My husband passed away in May of 2010 and I am trying to create a home for my little guy and I.

Thanks so much,

Heather said...

I can think of so many things that I would do but I know that I would do some vinyl art for my walls. I have a saying that I got from the dollar store that I love but it looks like a bumper sticker and it drives me insane.

p.s. came here via the Nester's blog, looking forward to meeting you at Blissdom!

What a great giveaway! I would love to try some vinyl signs. It would save me all the painstaking hours I spend painting on itty bitty words. I don't have the steadiest hand, and painting my favorite sayings on wooden plaques is such a chore! But I love the inspiration and look around the house. The ability to create these in Vinyl would be such a luxury!

Christine said...

Hey!
I can't really make a decision on what I would do!!! OK, I would go to Hobby Lobby and buy every fabric thing I could and decorate it. Aprons, bags, tshirts...then I would start on jars.

Christi said...

June@I will craft said...

If I had a Silhouette the first thing I would make would be some vinyl designs for the mirror in my bathroom. It's a stock cabinet and needs a makeover but I'm in a rental so I can't do anything permanent.

Jen said...

The first thing that I would make would be some subway art for my living room. I've seen what awesome things that can be done with a silhouette. I too have a Cricut and have only used it a few times. I only have one cartridge for it because it's just too expensive to get any others. Being a teacher, I would get sooo much use out of this. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
