Special Giveaway: Silhouette Craft Cutter ($300 Value)

This week I received a Silhouette SD Craft Cutter for review.  I truly felt like I hit the lottery on this giveaway and it is all thanks to my friends at How Does She? for offering this fantastic craft tool for myself and to give to one of our readers.

It is quite amazing the technology that crafters can now have right at their fingertips. I have been longing for a craft cutter for a long time and always think that if I had one of these, it would make gift-giving so much easier. I am a frugal gift giver, and nothing says I love you like a handmade gift that looks expensive. This craft cutter makes paper projects, gift-giving, glass etching, and vinyl art as easy as 1-2-3 and gives a professional touch to all of your gifts.  Although I have only had a couple of days to play with it, I am already so impressed at the exquisite detail and precision that this machine can do.

As you can see from the examples though, amazing things can be done with this handy little Silhouette machine. You can applique some throw pillows, make cute labels and organize all of those toys, make a welcome sign for your door, and so much more! Really, your imagination is the only thing that is going to stop you from being creative with this machine!

The machine comes with a few images already in your library of images to get you started. If you are looking for a specific design, you can search under whatever you might be needing or for someone special in your life and it will pull images for you that fit within those criteria. The search function helps finding the perfect image for the perfect gift very easy. The images cost $.99 each and they offer membership plans and options for bulk-buying where they can cost even less than this. Each week, they also feature a free download on their site that you can add to your library. You have to love those free perks!

Here is the honest truth, crafting just does not come easy to me. I can pretend to be awfully crafty, but it really does take a great bit of effort on my part. That is why, the projects that I will be featuring are things that any novice crafter could whip up in an afternoon.

Within just a few minutes of hooking the Silhouette up, I was making these cute cards to send as thank you notes for Ethan’s birthday gifts this year. This little cake cut-out was already in my library of images and I printed them out on a little heavy cardstock, gave it a quick stamp, and they are ready to send! I did this in five minutes, just imagine what you could do with a little more time!

I can’t wait to show off more projects that you can create with this cutter. But enough about me, let’s talk about this giveaway!
