Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

Silhouette is also having some hot deals on it’s Designer Software Edition. This is my first time playing around with it and it was a lot of fun! I used the new Sketch Tool (only available in the Designer Edition) to create this fun Easter Printable.

I created the graphic using the type tool and by drawing a few basic ovals. Then I used the Sketch Tool to give them a new look. The eggs were really simple to make and it was easy to customize each of them with the different sketch options. It was really fun to play around with! And then I added this cute little quote that I found online, I thought it was quite fitting :)

And here is a tip, when using the print feature for graphics you make in Silhouette, make sure that the line thickness is set above .00 or else it won’t print!


AND, I always get excited when Silhouette comes out with their awesome promos and March is no exception. Right now they are running some AMAZING deals to help you kick off Easter and Spring crafts. Both the Silhouette Cameo and the Silhoutte Portrait are being sold at hugely discounted prices. So if you haven’t invested in one of these fabulous cutting machines yet, now is  your time.

I absolutely love my Silhouette Cameo, I use it weekly. Here are a few of projects that I’ve made in the past using my Silhouette.

    I would use this the most for crafting and cutting vinyl. I also am excited that it cuts material.

    I would use it to create custom cutouts for my paper crafting. I love my cricut but I feel so limited by it! There have been so many times that I end up cutting something out by hand because I can’t get it to work right on my cricut. Really hoping I win!

  7. Katie says

    This would be amazing! I’ve kept my eye on one of these hoping that one day I could get one!!! I would be crafting something everyday!!!

    Zomg, paper lettering for cards. I hate buying them anymore and cutting by hands can be disasterous

  10. Daraya says

    I would love to make cards! I used to make handmade cards all the time but not so much anymore. It takes so long to cut out all the pieces! :(

  11. says

    Not sure what I would use the Silhouette for the most, I’d have to start using it to know but I will be making a lot of home decor gifts with it and might as well make the cards too. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  12. says

    Oh my gosh…..probably signs & labels. Two things I love dearly. I think I’m on a personal mission to have everything in my home labeled :) Thanks for such a great opportunity!
