Starting the year off right

As promised we have some awesome products and giveaways coming up & I thought we would just throw it all out there with this one...
If you're any kind of crafter, you'll LOVE the Silhouette craft cutter! It's so simple to use. It hooks up directly to your own computer which makes it easy to download images, save them and have the image cut. But how cool is this?... You can even design your own images and it will simply cut them for you. Cuts can be made from 1/4″ and 8 ” tall and up to 39″ long, that means endless possibilities for fun projects. Did I mention the Silhouette can cut everything from paper to vinyl? Not only is this perfect for making some extra money with a little side business but think about how much money you'll be saving making your own home decor?! Well, at least that's one excuse you can use when you're convincing your husband that you NEED THIS!
For the moment we've all been waiting for... Yes, of course we have a Silhouette to giveaway PLUS the winner can choose their choice of 5 vinyl colors but that's not all... The winner will also receive $150 in download credit!!! If you're trying to calculate all that, it's a $560value! (I know right, this is awesome way to start off the New Year!)
To enter...
Tell us what you would use the Silhouette for and your favorite feature!

Am I the first commenter? Cool! I would love, love, love this!!! I would use it for... vinyls for the wall and windows, cute little crafts... scrapbooking... oh, I could go on! Please pick me!!! (Ok, so I know it's totally random but I thought I'd throw that in there just in case!)

Deborah Stinson-editor said...

I would use this to make wall vinyls. Have been wondering how I could do this from home. Would like to make racecar wall art especially for my husband. sierramuse8 at aol.

Deborah Stinson-editor said...

I subscribed too. The feature I like the most is that you can make your own designs and it will cut them for you.

I would love this to make artwork with my daughter.

I've been looking for something along these lines. My mom scrapbooks and has her own jewelry business. She could use it to label and present her products.

However, my main use would be to create vinyl numbers for my racecar (as well as my father's car). I am an 18 year old female, up and coming driver from Florida, and paying people to cut vinyl costs soo much!! By being able to do it myself, I would cut back on costs, and therefore be allowed to put more money towards my racing. I also think that other drivers would be interested in cutting their own vinyl, so in choosing me, your product would be displayed on a car, for all to see.

I NEED this! I would use it for so many things. Home Decor, crafts, maybe some things/designs to sell on etsy. My favorite feature (and the reason I use the word NEED) is that I can cut my own designs, and I do a lot of my own designing.

What a great giveaway!

Kelsey said...

The cricut was on my wish list until I read this post...how great to not need cartridges, and to be able to cut out personal designs! I've got some crafts, vinyls and cards planned where this would sure come in handy!

Hilary said...

This would be fabulous for various projects at the humane society I volunteer for! We could make really nice posters of pets for adoption, fund raiser table items, etc. I love that it can letter!

Tracy Simmons said...

I just subscribed last week and am so glad I did!

I would love this because I decided that 2009 was going to be the year I was going to start to create beautiful things. I want to start with homemade greeting cards and books, and the Silhouette would be so fantastic for both these projects.

I've never had this desire before, to add beauty to the world, so I am very excited to get started!

Thanks,
Tracy (mtinternet at gmail dot com)

lfhpueblo said...

I'd use it to cut out vinyl lettering for the Sunday School rooms at Church. We could put up Theme Words and Memory Verses the children are working on. We could cut out shapes and such for the nursery walls too. I'd use it for making gift cards for the shut-ins, and those who are ill, for birthdays, holidays and more. I'd use it to cut out templates for quilting too. I could use it to help cut out items to craft together themed table centerpieces for holidays or parties. It could cut out Lettering for Birthday Banners, or Cub Scout Banners. There are so many possiblities. This is so great. I hope I win this fantastic giveaway, because after I get my walls in my home completely painted I was thinking about some vinyl lettering for some great sayings to inspire all of us. Thanks. Good luck to all. Wow!

Tanya said...
