Hey friends, I have a super stellar giveaway and promotional code for you today. I know, I know, Silhouette promotions are all over the blog world right now but I can’t help lending my voice to the awesomeness of the Silhouette because a) I have owned a Silhouette for years and have used it hundreds of times; the things I can make on it just make me happy, b) I love it so much I’m giving away one today (unsponsored by the Silhouette company; just doing it because it’s something I love) and c) I wouldn’t have posted a recipe today anyway so it’s kind of a “free” day, if you know what I mean. So bring on the giveaways.

Let’s get to the details. This is the biggest promotion Silhouette has ever run and it’s pretty sweet. You can see the details in the image below.

Here it is broken down for you:
(1) A Silhouette CAMEO®, Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition Software, a dust cover (the color is decided by Silhouette), a $25 download card, a hook, a scraper, a spatula, and a pick-me-up® tool for $229.99. Retail price for all of this would total $406.93 (over 40% savings!)

(2) A Silhouette Portrait®, Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition Software, a dust cover (the color is decided by Silhouette), a $25 download card, a hook, a scraper, a spatula, and a pick-me-up® tool for $129.99. Retail price for all of this would total $286.93 (over 40% savings!)

(3) A Silhouette CAMEO®, a Silhouette Portrait®, and two $25 download cards for $299.99. That’s right: If you buy a Silhouette CAMEO® at full price, you get two $25 download cards and a Silhouette Portrait® ABSOLUTELY FREE! Retail price for all of this would be $406.93 (over 40% savings!)

(4) 40% off consumable products at This excludes machines, subscriptions, download and gift cards. Cannot be combined with any other offers. Rain checks not available.

(5) FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25.

the giveaway
I didn’t want to give out a discount code without giving you a chance to actually win the product, so I’m personally giving away package #1 up there:
A Silhouette CAMEO, software, dust cover, $25 download card, hook, scraper, spatula, and pick-me-up tool.

fun projectsNow on to the fun part. What to do with that beautiful machine! I use my Silhouette for so, so many things. Cupcake toppers, treat boxes, individual packages for a single cupcake or slice of cake. Tags, ornaments, banners, cards (my favorite is the cutest ever chocolate chip cookie card). Iron-on personalized decals for Christmas Eve PJ’s. You name it. I have a Pinterest board dedicated to Silhouette projects that are just too cute for words and also includes some great tutorials. Here are a few things I’ve highlighted on the blog before and a few new ideas:

Candy Boxes (love these!)

Easter Dinner Carrot Placecard

Treat Bags and Containers for Homemade Gifts plus Printable Adhesive Labels on Silver Foil

This is just a very small glimpse of all the ways I use my beloved Silhouette. I know one thing for sure: it makes me look a lot craftier than I really am. Which is awesome.
