Just in Time for Christmas — Silhouette Giveaway {worth $300}!!

{Giveaway now closed}

I seriously am so, so thrilled about this giveaway!! 

I know you have heard me talk about how much I love my Silhouette-SD!!
 I use it ALL the time!
And Silhouette is going to give one to a Tatertots and Jello Reader!!!  
The Silhouette-SD is the niftiest little gadget — it connects to your computer just like a printer, but instead of printing designs it cuts them with a small blade. My favorite part — it comes with the software to create your own designs. You can also cut out any font on your computer — isn’t that fabulous?? No more cartridges!!!  And also — the Silhouette is Mac and PC friendly. AWESOME! 
This little machine can do so many things! 
You can make gifts with vinyl, create t-shirts and pillows with the Heat Transfer material, etch glass, make cards, magnetsplus more!
Plus Silhouette has an online library with beautiful images that you can download from fabulous designers. 
There are so many possibilities! 
Here are a few of my favorite projects I have made using the Silhouette-SD:
{Laundry Room Baskets}

{Christmas Subway Art Pillow}

Ok — here are the juicy details:

  1. The Hubs has been out of work for a bit, I have RA and can no longer work. I have tried to create stuff for all the new babies in our family and with the RA in my hands, it just doesn’t look that great. Having one would help me tremendously! We have in the past sponsored a few children every Christmas and it would so help with that!!! Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. Wendy Westberry says:

    I love CRAFTING/DIY projects. I would LOVE the chance to WIN a Silhouette SD . I am ready to get started doing things for my own home. Thanks!

  3. I would make all of my family and friends handmade Christmas gifts this year! I have been looking into getting one for a while now, but I have a mac, so I had to wait until it was compatible. Now that it is, I am thrilled! I want to make all kinds of fun handcrafts for my home and for my friends!

    (I also mentioned this on Facebook, but to be honest, I have no idea how to link it to you… The link is here:



  4. I love to do handmade gifts for all occasions, not just the holidays! I am also having a mostly DIY wedding this coming spring that I would love to have use of this machine for it. I have a cricut expression and I love it, don’t get me wrong, but I have shelves and shelves dedicated to cartridges and I still can’t do all of the designs I would like. I always find myself saying “This image would be perfect if I could only change…” I couldn’t tell you how elated I would be if I won! Thank you for the opportunity!

  5. What a brilliant machine! Mac friendly too, I am so excited about the concept and the possibilities. I hope to win this incredible machine that seems perfect for the technologically challenged like me!

I was soooo close to buying a different cutter that required cartridges, but I decided to wait for one that could work directly from software on my computer. It is perfect! There is so much fun to be had decorating my home and crafting with my little girlies!
