Special Weekday Giveaway | Silhouette Portrait™

GIVEAWAY | One person will receive a Silhouette Portrait™. US residents only please.


  • When you use the code “EDWARDS” between February 28-March 10 you will be able to get 1 Silhouette Portrait™ + Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition for $179.99
  • For those that already have a cutting tool and are just interested in the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition software, you will be able to purchase it for $24.99.

Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition contains all the same functionality as Silhouette Studio® plus the following designer features:

  • Ability to open, manipulate, and cut .svg files
  • Rhinestone tools to convert designs into rhinestone templates and create your own rhinestone designs
  • Sketch tools to convert designs into several styles of sketchable art
  • Creative knife tools to allow you to clip designs using different patterns
  • Enhanced eraser set to modify designs with more precision
  • Built-in ruler and guide lines for precise alignment and drawing

The Silhouette Portrait™ is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 8″ wide and 10 feet long. The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials.


Here are some tutorials I have done using the Silhouette Studio® Software:

Here are a few of my favorite projects I’ve created for Project Life using the Silhouette Cameo®:
