Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

This Giveaway is now CLOSED!

If you have been following me for the past couple of years…then you know how much I enjoy my Silhouette CAMEO.  I have used it SEVERAL times on all sorts of different home décor and crafting projects in and around my house.


Well, Silhouette has come up with a smaller version of the CAMEO with all of the same great features.  I can’t even begin to tell you how happy this makes me!  The Silhouette Portrait weighs only 3.5 pounds which makes it perfect for a girls craft night out…or a trip to your friend’s house for a fun project, the Portrait can be carried easily wherever you  may need to go.

    I would love to win this Silhouette because my little boys and I LOVE to make greeting cards and other art projects for our family far away, place them in beautiful packages, and mail them off. We think it really brightens someone’s day when they receive a cheery package in the mail with a sweet sentiment ‘just because’. Right now, we use a lot of scrapbook paper and paper cutters, but the three of us would be OVER THE MOON if we won a Silhouette because it means we could take our ‘cheer spreading’ projects to the very next level! We live roughly 700 miles away from our family (and I’m a single mom!) so it’s a very important part of every week for us to let people know we are thinking about them in a beautiful way. Our recipients would be so grateful and impressed with our new projects if we won! (Especially grandma!) Thanks so much for the opportunity & happy holidays!!!

  85. Katelan Edwardsen says

    I know I’ll be disqualified coz I don’t live in the US but I just wanted to share that I bought one sometime ago and only got to use it for one project. Then it broke down and I couldn’t get it fixed because there were no service centers here in the UAE. I lost my money and I couldn’t afford to get it shipped back to the US for repairs and then pay again for return shipping. now there are so many projects I wished I could do like making decals for the house or screen printing patterns for some gifts I want to make. Wished silhouette would have a branch here in Dubai soon.

    I’ve been posting this comment on most silhouette giveaway posts hoping silhouette America will listen to my pleas…

  153. Kristy Skoy says

    I would make a really cute Christmas Sign that I have already designed but dont have a Silhouette to cut it out with!

  154. Sarah says

    I would love to make some wood signs and use the silhouette for the letters for around the house!

  155. Laura Johnson says

    I would make new vinyl wording for my walls, since I recently had to take it all down to have the walls retextured and painted!

  156. Amanda Estroff says

    I would make vinyl decals for my moms home and these amazing glitter snowflakes i saw on a blog as well as snowmen and wreaths and ornaments to hang around the apartment for Christmas time for my son and I since the apartment is too small for a Christmas tree. But he would have fun decorating and hanging them around the place with me :) Thank you you Sihouette and all these blogs for offering this giveaway. So amazing!

    I think the Silhouette Portrait is the neatest machine; it’s doesn’t take up a lot of room but can do a gazillion things. If I won it, I would start with stencils and vinyl decals for some signs and subway art and some mixed media art I’m working on. I need make labels to use in reorganizing my pantry. It would be great to make ornaments, cards and to use in scrapbooking and altered books.

  158. Vanessa B says

    I think my first project would be to cut vinyl letters and numbers for our mailbox! Thank You!!!

  159. Jeanne J says

    I would use the Portrait to finish the scrapbook I am making for my brother and new sister-in-law for their Christmas gift.

  160. Derrelyn Phelps says

    Oh I know exactly what I would start with! Some amazing freezer paper t-shirt stenciling that is what! Christmas is going to be THE BEST this year if I win! :)

  161. says

    There are some beautiful Christmas projects I’d like to do on pallet wood.

    I have too many Christmas crafts in mind, but it would definitely be something Christmas!

    pretty sure I would try to do an applique on a shirt. I have never done that, sounds fun.

      Ok, I MEANT to say, I want to make a family rules sign. And I’m trying to figure out how to do it w/o buying it or buying letters and I don’t trust my handwriting to free hand it. That was the craft idea, I hit enter before I could clarify, sorry.

  167. Cara says

    Thank you so much for sponsoring this giveaway! Crossing my fingers that I win one because I have a lot of projects waiting in the wings that could REALLY use this! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas! Good luck to all!

  168. Cara says

    Apparently, I need to make an alphabet sign because I’m having trouble reading ; ) Actually, I would use it to make personalized signs and stencils on furniture for friends and family for Christmas. Again, good luck to all! : )

  176. Katherine says

    I would love to make some personalized art for my sons’ room! They are moving into one room together as we prepare for our third son’s arrival and they are so excited. They would be over the moon if we could use a Silhouette machine to design and create art together for their room!

    My first project would be making some amazing Christmas cards for my friends and family!

  178. lynne ATL says

    I have so many things in mind but I have some tote bags for gifts that I need stencil on. This would be so much better than using an craft knife

    probably right after some new christmas ornaments

  180. says

    I have wanted a Silhouette for a long time. I think the smaller version would be a great place to start. I have loads of projects in my brain that would be made easy with the Silhouette. I’d make custom Christmas cards this year for sure!

  184. Peggy M says

    it would be awesome to win this machine and I would start making personalized Christmas gifts

  185. says

    Oops, didn’t follow instructions. My very first project would be making a vinyl name label for my otoscope (that thing your doctor looks in your ears with)…. It was expensive & I’d love a cute way to mark it as mine!!

  186. Pam says

    My first project will be Christmas decorations and then Christmas gifts for all 11 grandchildren
