silhouette digital cutting tool review and giveaway!

When I was working at Lasting Memories, I had a major wish-list item. I'll give you a hint. It cuts paper, vinyl, and heat transfer material, and you don't have to buy expensive design cartridges. If you guessed the Silhouette digital cutting machine, then you must have it on your wish list, too! If you have no idea what I'm taking about, prepare to be amazed. And to want one.

A few weeks ago, Silhouette sent me a free machine to try and review (I know--I've been dancing a little jig ever since!). I came home from Utah to this:

(Jiggety-jig!)

I spent the last year singing it's praises to customers in the scrapbook store, but now that I've had a chance to use the Silhouette myself, all I can say is that it really is AMAZING. I am full-fledged IN LOVE with this machine. Let me tell you why. No, let me show you why. Here is a sampling of some of the projects I've done since I received my machine (yes, I've been busy!):



My very favorite part of this tool is the ability you have to use your own designs and true-type fonts on your computer, plus digital image downloads from tons of great designers (think House of Three and Hero Arts) for only $.99 each (or less if you have a subscription). I have loved my Slice, and I'll still use it, but I hate having to buy a $50 cartridge, especially when I know I'll only really use a fraction of the images. My second favorite thing is how versatile it is. The software that goes with it is awesome. You can cut shapes and letters in any size increments you want, you can take images apart and only cut part of them (which comes in handy when creating a multi-colored image), and you can cut multiple images at a time (which saves time and paper). I really feel like I don't have any limitations with this tool. I can use it for my scrapbooking, card making, home decor, party decorations (think cupcake wrappers and banners!), clothing, even quilting (to cut applique templates). You're going to be seeing a lot with this machine from me.

I have so many great project ideas in my head for this tool, and I haven't even tried the glass etching cream, rhinestone templates, sketching pencils, or printable heat transfer material yet! Check out some more ideas here and on the Silhouette blog (which is incredible, by the way). There are tons of tutorials, FAQs, and great ideas on both sites. Here are a few things inspiring me:






The Giveaway
Okay, enough of my blabbering, here's the big news. Silhouette is letting us give away a FREE Silhouette SD cutting tool and a bunch of free accessories to one of our readers! (You should be doing a little jig about now, too!) Here's what our lucky winner will receive:

*One roll of transfer tape (for applying the vinyl images)
*A scraper tool (for applying vinyl)
*A CD of home décor images to cut
*$10 download card to buy new shapes on the Silhouette Online Store.

Are you kidding me? I really don't think we've ever hosted a giveaway this good before! This is seriously awesome, people! Here's what you have to do to enter.

I can not believe you give a Silhoutte Machine! I am in shock!
I've been wanting this machine a long time, but in my country is impossible to get it!
I do not know if you just send them to USA or if you do international shipping, but I'll leave my comment anyway. I will visit every day and I love your work. You have a beautiful blog.
If I had the Silhouette machine I would use for scrapbooking, because I could cut everything I imagined, but also to make vinyls for my house that I love!
I've already left a message on my blog, you can see here:

Thank you very much, and I will continue visiting your blog for your great work!

Stacey said...

I would use it to etch my glass casserole dishes first then make some vinyl sayings for my very bare walls then....who know? The possibilities are endless!!

Live.Teach.Create said...

I used a Silhouette when I worked at an LSS and loved it. I personally loved all the options that it had available. I haven't used one in about 3 years but it has always been something I wanted to acquire but never was able to as I always put my family first. I would love to own once for not only all that I can create for my home but also for my classroom.

Stacey said...

"Liked" you on Facebook :)
Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

marie said...

Vinyl decals, oh the possibilities!

I would use it for crafts around the house--sewing appliques, paper crafting (no scrapbooking here!).

jennifer said...

The better question is, what WOULDN'T I use it for?! I would definitely do a ton of vinyl creations for my daughter's room. It is garden themed, so I could go CRAZY with that. We are trying for another baby right now, so when that happens, I will go crazy with that nursery. Oh, the possibilities! I would etch glass, use it for my card making, making personalized shirts, and I am an art teacher, so it would help a lot with my classes.

tiffany said...

There are so many options. I would probably start with vinyl then onto the heat transfer! thanks for the chance to win!! yay!!

Holy cow, what I would do with one of these! I'm loving the vinyl on your mixer. I was thinking that and putting it on my sugar/flour jars. It looks awesome!
j.n.matthews at gmail.com

Emily said...

I don't think if I owned a silhouette, there would be anything in my house that wasn't 'safe'. The first project? I need to label our garbage and recycling bins. Not super fun or fancy, but a necessity!

GLOANN said...

There seems to be no limit to what you can use the Silhouette for! My first thought is some of those beautiful intricate cuts for my scrapbooking, but I also want to do some of the vinyl for wall treatments. And some of. . .

All of the heat transfer stuff is pretty awesome since I've been more into fabric than paper these days. I'd also probably make some wall art.

Adena and Greg said...

love the heat transfer and the vinyl cutouts the best. Thanks for the givaway

Lori said...

Emily and Frank said...

I've been dying to try glass etching, but have been nervous to do so. But if I had a Silouette I would finally give it a try!

barbiegirlie2 said...

I would go bananas with the papercrafting ideas (*scrapping and cardmaking*)! And the rhinestones? Incredible! Ooh, and the heat transfer stuff?! I will have to lock myself in my craft room for a long, long time with it. :D

Trisha said...

I would use it to make the bathroom signs my 4-year old wants. "Boys allowed, Girls welcome" on his "Girls allowed, Boys welcome" on mine. And many, many more signs and home decorations...

Becky said...

I'm also a FB fan!

Becky said...

I would love to use the heat transfer for some cute shirts for my girlies, and I love vinyl, but hate the price, so I would vinyl me up a storm in my house! Thanks for the chance to win!

Randi said...

I would use it for glass etching and wall vinyl. I am in love with this machine.

veronica said...

i would love to do the wall decor, but i fear my dh would never let me, besides the fact that we have old plaster walls that are not smooth. and i don't know if it would work or not.
i make a lot of tote bags, and i would love to do some heat transfer ideas. that would be so cool!
thanks so much for the opp to win!

Pritz said...

jgcain@live.com

cbryan said...

Seriously, what WOULDN'T I use it for??! I love the look of Vinyl decor.

Kristi said...

Oh the endless possibilities of the Silhouette! I'm not sure if I would ever come out of my craft room if I got one!!! :o) I would definitely use it in my scrapping, card making, sewing, and decorating!!!

IHaveANotion ~ Kelly Jackson said...

It is 100% clear to me why you are so excited!!! I'm surprised you have even slept....I think my entire house would be decorated with fun things.

One thing I would have to make are snowflakes. There is a website that is dedicated to this man's mother and they have free snowflake patterns to fold and cut. During the holidays I love to cover the window with them. I think I might jump for joy if I made made them into heat transfers and made a wall curtain so I could keep them forever.

And did I mention the 16 inches (stacked flat) of scrapbook paper that I own? Probably because I fear the Hoarder show coming to my house. I guarantee you I would have my way with some great scrapbook pages.....

I better stop before I break out in a cold sweat. I feel the fever hitting....it is too late....one way or another....I'll have one of these babies :)

Smiles,
Kelly

Cailín said...

Wall art. Then my niece and I would be busy coming up with a ton of different crafts.

Kristin Burke Sevinc said...

Oh wow, this is a huge giveaway! I would make custom doilies out of my favorite papers and vinyl to plaster all over everything. And I would be making cupcake holders for every day of the week.

This has been on my wishlist for oohhh so long!! I would definitly do a jiggity jig if I was the lucky winner. I can't wait to do transfers, vinyl, gifts, & so many projects!!

Erin said...

A better question would be what wouldn't I use this for! I love this thing and so want to have one of my very own!

Amy said...

So many wonderful ways to use this! I would use it on fabric so I could create my own custom bags and t-shirts.

Boy do I need this machine!!!

Oh my goodness! What could you not use this on! I love the heat transfer and the vinyl labeled toy bins would be wonderful! I think it might get me back into scrapbooking too!

I would use it for EVERYTHING!!! I'm getting into quilting, so I like your idea of making templates. I'd use it for craft show signage, home vinyl decor, scrapbooking, you name it!
Thanks for the chance to win!

LOve it, I would use it to put Z's everything in sight in my house. (my last name begins with Z and I cant find ready made Z's anywhere!)

I would totally use it on everything. I love all the vinyl options they have and the etching on the fish bowl is too cute.

I would LOVE to make some vinyl wall art (I rent so painting is not worth it to us!) and I would love to do the heat transfers!

Wow, lots of possibilities! I think t-shirt or tote bag stencils would be at the top of my list.

Regretfully I have posted this giveaway to my blog. I have to say I think we may have to hold you girls responsible for the flash flood of tears that are generated when you announce the winner. The winner will be leaping roof tops and the rest will be crying for a long, long, long time....or until they get one for themselves :)

Great giveaway! I've been wanting to try glass etching for awhile now, so I think the first thing I would try is that. I'm sure I would make some onesies at some point in time also!

Bethany said...

WOW! Amazing giveaway!!! The glass etching is so cool! And cutting fabric & vinyl...oooohhhh!!!! Thanks for the chance!

jglitter said...

I want one soo bad! I would start with vinly projects. Then I would do some heat transfers. My little boys birthday is coming up so maybe some cupcake wrappers after...

Mariesa M. said...

Please pick me!

Monica said...

Wow! How exciting! Once I figured out the Silhouette, I would make paper packaging for the home bakery business I am looking to start. I'd probably also plaster the house in adorable vinyl lettering! Oh and card making. My head is spinning just thinking about all I could do! Pick me! Please!

I SOOOOO want this! I have been eyeing a cutting tool forever and haven't been able to make up my mind, UNTIL NOW!! I gotta have one! I would use it for organizing my craft room and kids everything! I also want to play with the scrapbooking and the heat transfer. I see a lot of cute t-shirts, totebags, notebooks, binders, banners, and scrapbook pages in my future! Come on Little Birdie- choose ME!!!
