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.

The Silhouette Portrait™ is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable.

The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials.


  • Silhouette Portrait™ electronic cutting tool
  • Silhouette Studio® software for Windows XP and higher, and Mac® OS X 10.6.8 and higher
  • 50 exclusive cuttable designs
  • Power cable, USB cable
  • 8″ cutting mat

Silhouette Cameo winner


Sorry for the small delay…we had a small emergency at our house that involved a chopstick and a pair of tweezers to remedy…

little petshop wm

Raspberry Tart (one of Strawberry Shortcakes friends) was wedged in there pretty good.  Note to self…apparently Strawberry Shortcake is above the height limit for the Little People Tree house…I feel this should have been stated clearly on the tree somewhere…Winking smile  Now that we have that situation under control it is time for the other situation…

I have a Cameo to giveaway

Today’s lucky winner is commenter #1959…


Valerie DeLap!!!!!


Congratulations Valerie! So excited for you! You have 48 hours to send me an email and to claim your new Silhouette Cameo.  If Valerie DeLap does not claim it within the time frame…a new winner will be chosen!

Thanks everyone for entering! I was overwhelmed by the large number of entries this time! Hopefully we will be able to do this again soon!

Using my code will get you the Silhouette Cameo and a Fabric Ink Starter Kit for $299. The code will only be valid through the 5th of January, but you will need to order one quickly as the number of Cameo’s available for this promotion are limited.
