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.

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:

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.
