I Give You: the Silhouette SD {Giveaway}

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! Please check out the amazing Cyber Monday deal here. Use code: FAMILY

Boy, do I have a treat for y’all!

I’ve got a new love in my life. She and I have gotten very close in just a matter of weeks.

I’d love for you to meet the Silhouette SD-the most amazing digital cutting tool available!

This little machine creates endless possibilities!  With the Silhouette, you can cut vinyl, paper, make custom apparel, magnets and temporary tattoos–create cards and etch glass–to name a few!

Look what we made with the Silhouette in just a matter of minutes:

It cut this felted transfer paper perfectly:

Darling, huh?

With a press of a few buttons, I made birthday invitations for my youngest:

I’m so excited about making things for the Mercy House! I thought it would be fun to make magnets for our supporters.

Here’s a quick tutorial-

Simply choose the design-everything in red is where the Silhouette cuts:

Next, you need to fill in whatever color you will be printing for the magnets:

Insert magnet paper, proper blade and hit the CUT button:

And voila!

(The Silhouette even cut out this brochure holder from card stock!)

Look at this vinyl Africa:

And gifts? I have so many ideas!

I needed a quick gift and so I shopped my house to make a cute Bath Salt gift:

[bud vase (.99), unused bath salts, tule and ribbon from my craft drawer and I cut the vinyl word JOY w/the Silhouette]

And I can’t wait to make this:

      I love the variety of projects one can do with this. There is a lady at church who has some wonderful things she has made. I have so many ideas of things I could do with this. I could never afford to buy one – even at the discount price, so winning one would be more than great!

      What couldn’t I make with it! First thing I think would be a vinyl for my laptop that says Hands Off! …but then I think one of those cute Laundry signs would be great! Thanks
