    I don’t know what my first project would be – I have so many ideas in my head – I want to try them all out at once! Thank you for the chance to win!

    What an awesome giveaway! I’d make party decorations for my son’s First Communion if I won. Then Mother’s Day cards, graduation favors…I’d be busy! Thanks for a chance to win.

    I have been wanting to try cutting vinyl to etch glass and this would be so fabulous to do that with! Thanks, Nancy

    I would love to win this! I have my own Silhouette and use it for EVERYTHING. Best thing ever! However, I’d love to win a Silhouette so that I could give it to my church’s school. We have pre-k throuogh 8th grade and as of now they cut everything out by hand. This would be so wonderful for them!

  11. Debra williams April 19, 2013 at 8:07 am #

    I would like to do some of the full page cut outs that I see used as overlays. I would like to cut some of the unique titles that I see. I think it would be neat to cut a font out that I usually print! Thanks for opportunity to win!

  12. Sandi April 19, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    I can only imagine the things I could make…words for one… I love fancy fonts! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  13. Cynthia Keasling April 19, 2013 at 8:20 am #

    I have heard that it cuts detailed images really well. I would use it to cut images for my school, we’re a small school and budget cuts are a challenge. Being able to make cuts for bulletin boards for the teachers and using it to make stencils for t-shirts for the students. I could also use it to help the children’s program at my church, we could find images for the classrooms.

  14. Mary Courtney April 19, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    I would finish all my “in progress” projects!

  15. Pam April 19, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    I would like to win this to give to my friend who teaches in an innner city school. They have little or no supplies and she cuts everything by hand for all the kids projects. thank you for this contest.

  16. Kristin April 19, 2013 at 8:55 am #

    What a great giveaway! If I won, I’d be able to make all of the cute diecuts that everyone makes for Project Life. Right now the only way I’m able to do that is through someone I special order them with on Etsy. Thanks for the chance!

  17. Cora May Hartzell April 19, 2013 at 8:55 am #

    Would love to win a Silhouette. Thanks for the give-away.

  18. Linda M April 19, 2013 at 9:35 am #

    I would love to win a Silhouette and would use it for my scrapping projects including many mini albums and 12×12 layouts. I would also love to be able to create more home decor projects. It is such an amazing machine and the potential for creativity is endless.

  19. Paula Taylor April 19, 2013 at 9:39 am #

    OMG! I would totally start an online business and make all kinds of cute and fun stuff. I can just imagine the scrapbook ideas I could do. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!!

  20. Cheryl April 19, 2013 at 9:46 am #

    I want one of these so much. I could use it for scrapbooking, home projects and work related items. So many possibilities!

  21. Leslie Kiley April 19, 2013 at 9:57 am #

    I really love your blog! It has so much good information on Trends and products! Thank you so much. I would love to have one of these fantastic machines! This takes creating to a whole new level!

    • Leslie Kiley April 19, 2013 at 9:59 am #

      I would start with making a quote out of vinyl for my craft room! So inspiring!

  22. Angela Yeremenko April 19, 2013 at 10:00 am #

    I would make labels for my jars of grain and make stencils!

  23. beastybunny April 19, 2013 at 10:04 am #

    I visit this blog every day to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in the paper crafting arena and you do a fabulous job at gathering the latest info! I would use this machine to do bulk cutting for large family projects. I made paper flowers for a wedding (at the brides request) and I did them with my hand crank die cut machine and it took forever (they turned out great but oh the time spent!) I think an electronic machine would make those types of projects a piece of cake.

  24. Mel H April 19, 2013 at 10:18 am #

    I would use it to make etched casserole dishes for wedding gifts

  25. churchmedialady April 19, 2013 at 10:23 am #

    I would use it to make something for my new scrapbook room!

  26. Roxanne Mussell April 19, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    I would use it for making cards!

  27. Candy Clay April 19, 2013 at 10:47 am #

    Make something amazing for my Project Life album

  28. Elyssa April 19, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    I have wanting one of these machines forever! I come up with new ideas daily for home decor, Project Life, party decorations, art projects, etc. I especially like that I can create my own designs!

  29. Katie April 19, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    What a great giveaway! I would love this for project life!

  30. Margie Visnick April 19, 2013 at 11:14 am #

    I would use it all of the time for scrapbooking!

  31. Lillian Vega April 19, 2013 at 11:32 am #

    I would make lots of images for mother’s day cards.

  32. Donna Welch April 19, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    It’s amazing what this little thing can do. By being able to go online and purchase exactly what you want to cut is priceless!! I’m seeing this Silhouette as the way to go with all your crafting and home decor wants and needs. Awesome giveaway!!

  33. Carol Nemecek April 19, 2013 at 11:52 am #

    I’d love to have the Silhouette. It would make scrapping and cardmaking so much easier.

  34. jodt April 19, 2013 at 11:57 am #

    I can’t even tell you how much I would use this! I make cards & scrapbook, use vinyl & crafts. I would love to win this. My mom would also use this a lot!

  35. Kristy Foster Seachrist April 19, 2013 at 12:02 pm #

    I have so many ideas that I could use the Silhouette for! I could use it to make cards and finish my wedding scrapbooking!

  36. dottiej27 April 19, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    I use diecuts mostly for text titles on scrapbook pages. What fun it would be to be able to merge letters and to merge titles with artwork.

  37. tammy April 19, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    I would make layouts with it and maybe some cards too!

  38. Sue McRae April 19, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

    I would use it in my cardmaking. How great would it be to not have to fussy cut out intricate images!

  39. Tina C April 19, 2013 at 12:31 pm #

    Designing die cuts is so fun. Would love a machine.

  40. Karin B April 19, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    This looks awesome! I don’t know anyone who has one so I may be “the first one on my block” to get it! So fun!

  41. Trisha Hamilton April 19, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    I would stay up all night experimenting!

  42. Kristen April 19, 2013 at 12:54 pm #

    I would use the Portrait to make custom shapes and words for my scrapbooking but would also use it to make decorations for my home and gifts for family and friends. Spread the crafty happy!

  43. Kathy (Kangaroo Mama) April 19, 2013 at 1:18 pm #

    I would love to use this to make some vinyl projects, I have been afraid to use vinyl!

  44. Sandy Lewis April 19, 2013 at 1:19 pm #

    I would use it to start a small business selling tee-shirts. I would use rhinestones, high temp vinyl and vinyl as stencil to paint them – and hopefully bring a bit of money into our home. Thank you for the chance to win!

  45. Lorrie Greenway McCullers April 19, 2013 at 2:17 pm #

    Great giveaway, Nancy! I have wanted one of these for ages! I would use this Silhouette for vinyl wall words.

  46. Julia Sandvoss April 19, 2013 at 2:25 pm #

    Such a fantastic giveaway! I have numerous vinyl projects that are just looking at me plus I’d like to try some fabric cuts for a small camera strap I’m working on! Thanks for the chance!

  47. Cindy April 19, 2013 at 2:59 pm #

    I have lots and lots of scrapbook pages waiting to be done, so those would be first, then I would go to pinterest and find some cool projects to try. Thank you for the chance to win!

  48. Kelly S April 19, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

    I would love, love, love this! I could make beautiful titles for my scrapbook pages. I would also love making my own custom die-cuts.

  49. Donna April 19, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    I’d love to have this smaller more portable version for crops and traveling!! (hint, hint) 😉

  50. Devanie April 19, 2013 at 3:54 pm #
