Giveaway: The Silhouette Machine

This week’s giveaway is a crafter’s dream! Now you may have caught a glimpse of it last week over at the TomKat Studio where crafty Kim whipped up super sweet decorative cupcake wrappers and scored nearly 2500 entries.  After I picked my jaw off the floor, I thought I better come up with something  crafty myself. I decided to channel Le Papier Studio and make my very own silhouette art. Afterall, It is called the Silhouette Machine!

Voila! My latest entry hall design and family tree. I tend to get carried away twice a year at the semi-annual Aaron Brothers penny sale (going on now!) so I picked up a handful of simple white frames.  I filled them with brightly patterned scrapbook paper to pop against the subtle gray and graphic greek key wallpaper from Jonathan Adler. And then came along the Silhouette: A digital cutting machine for all your crafty projects.

Once I downloaded the 64-bit driver to ensure it was compatible to my latest laptop the process was simple. The cd rom of directions are clear and I ultimately toggled between the two windows to coach me through my first cut. Once I made my first silhouette, I couldn’t stop. I quickly realized that the possibility are endless. From vinyl wall decals to heat transfers to even etched glass!

The machine itself doesn’t take up too much room. It prints, it cuts and thousands of designs can be downloaded for only 99 cents each or less should you purchase a subscription. No expensive cartridges are required and best part, fonts from your own computer may be used. I am hooked and confident that you will be too so that’s why the folks at Silhouette Machine are generously offering their fabulous product to one lucky Project Nursery reader.
