Special Weekday Giveaway | Silhouette Portrait


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

It’s no secret that I love this machine. It’s definitely one of my favorite tools for memory keeping. I’m excited to host another Silhouette giveaway and to let you know about this month’s special offers that include the new Stamping Starter Kit.

Here’s a look at what comes in the box:



  • When you use the code “EDWARDS” between September 4th-13th you will be able to get 1 Silhouette Cameo™ + Stamping Starter Kit for $269.99
  • For those that already have a cutting tool and are just interested in the Stamping Starter Kit, you will be able to purchase it for $23.99.

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.


Katie and I had a chance to play around with the Stamping Starter Kit yesterday and after a couple of mess-ups (mainly because we had the wrong blade installed – we had the fabric blade loaded) we were able to create a stamp using the material in the kit.


Here are some helpful tutorials from me using the Silhouette Studio® Software:

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