Happy Black Friday everyone!

Just like last year, I’m super excited to be working with Silhouette to offer you a) a chance to win a Silhouette electronic cutting tool and b) a discount code for Mel’s Kitchen readers offering huge savings on everything Silhouette.

If you are looking for something to add to your wish list OR you are buying for someone who has a Silhouette on their wish list, there’s no better time to take advantage of the savings (and start dropping hints to loved ones in your own behalf).

Plus, the Silhouette company just came out with a brand new Cameo and…well, it’s beautiful…and a dream to work with.

I’ve owned a Silhouette for years; long before the company wanted to offer a discount code for my blog. I use it  all the time! I’m not a huge crafty crafter girl, but I love using it to make gift boxes for delivering treats (perfect for giving away those gourmet caramel apples!), gift tags, sweatshirts for my kids (the heat transfer material I used on their Christmas Eve sweatshirts over three years ago is still going strong even after about 1,000 times through the washer and dryer!), simple menu planning magnet for my fridge, and my latest venture is using it to cut fabric for a quiet book I’m making Cam for Christmas.

It’s a great tool for anyone – no matter your level of craftiness!

Today, I’m partnering with Silhouette to giveaway ONE Silhouette Portrait SD cutting machine. {FYI: This is the same machine I owned for a long time before upgrading to a Cameo a few years ago and it is fabulous.} To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me how crafty you are on a scale of 1-10 (1 being you really don’t even own a pair of scissors all the way to 10 which means your house is probably constructed from hand-dyed deconstructed pallets and washi tape).

2) Void where prohibited.
3) Giveaway is not associated with Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest. Prizes will be fulfilled by Silhouette America.
