Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!


I have a fabulous giveaway for you today.  I recently have partnered with Silhouette America and could not be more excited to bring this giveaway to you. It is for a Silhouette Portrait cutting machine.

Silhouette Logo

I have only had my Silhouette for about a month and have been over the moon happy with it. I have been experimenting, playing, and creating labels, monograms, and embellishing gifts with the cut outs and images I have made using it.   My oldest was home last week and was excited to see how it worked.  I helped her make a vinyl monogram in navy blue to put on a vase to give to her roommate. She was quite impressed and happy that Mom had something so cool to be able to whip up a gift with a personal touch in a matter of 15 minutes.

So far I have only used vinyl and paper to create with, but Silhouette has just released a bunch of exciting new products that will take your creativity to the next level.



How cool is this?


The holidays will be here before we know it.   You know how much I like to embellish gifts. Now I can make printed tags and more using fabric.


There is so much more a Silhouette cutting machine can do besides cut vinyl, paper, and fabric – glass etching, stamping, the possibilities are endless!


You can find all of these new items and more at the Silhouette online shop, and for the next week only,  Silhouette America is offering In My Own Style readers 40% off all Silhouette consumables! {excludes CAMEO, Portrait, Downloads and Gift Cards}

Just enter OWNSTYLE at checkout!


And now… the really exciting news is that not only do I get to share a sneak peek at the new products, along with a fabulous discount, I get to give away a Silhouette Portrait to one of you!  A $180 value!



to enter GIVEAWAY:


Just leave me a comment on this post telling me what you would like to make if you win!

I will choose the winner via and announce the winner on Monday morning July 28th.

Good Luck !

Be sure to check out the Silhouette blog all week for more chances to win and to see some great projects using the new Silhouette products.




  1. Sara says

    So excited about this giveaway! My husband and I recently became first-time homeowners, and there’s no shortage of projects I’d love to take on. I would probably start by taking a page from your book and using the Silhouette to create monogrammed art/labels for around the house. I’d also love to make invitations to send out for the first holiday we’ll host in our new home! :)

  2. Lesley says

    Would LOVE to have the Silhouette! We’ve been trying to get our house together for a housewarming party. Would love to make some labels for some cute swing top bottles I just bought online.

  3. Brianna says

    The teacher in me is dreaming of all the labels and such that I could make for my classroom. And the good Southern girl in me is dreaming of the monogrammed vinyl decals that I could make. :)

    What a FABULOUS giveaway!

  4. Tara Grinyer says

    I would love to try to make anything with glass etching….Christmas related of course ;) My favorite time of the year :)
    Thanks for the chance to win :)

  5. Leslie says

    I’m head over heels for subway signs, been dreaming of one with all the places my husband and I have visited. Perhaps my own Silhouette would make my dream come true.

  6. Charity says

    Oh wow. I would make some vinyl letters so I can customize my stairs with words.
    I’ve also been wanting to make a Peter Pan shadow to lurk in my daughter’s bedroom. Or maybe Tink?

  7. Patricia King says

    If I won the Silhouette portrait, I would use it to create a custom stencil to etch a wonderful quote onto a gorgeous piece of smoked glass. I would give the piece to my sister as a gift.

  8. Heidi says

    What fun! I have been dreaming of one for many years now. I think I would use it to make signs and labels, but from the looks of things I would likely use it to do much more!

  9. Elisabeth says

    I would love to win this! I would use it to make all manner of monograms for my baby girl’s things (due in November). Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  10. Jane Rubino says

    I see so many personalized gift ideas, I think my little head will explode! Fun, fun, fun crafting days ahead!

  11. Karen J says

    I have a brand new grandson to make cute onsies for. But the first thing I would do is etch my name on my good glass dishes so I don’t lose anymore.

  12. Rhawnee Hopkins says

    I would LOVE to win a Silhouette! I would use it for tons of projects around the house and in my classroom.

  13. Joan Fletcher says

    I would love to win a Silhouette. It would be so much fun to explore all its uses. Can’t wait to be the winner

  14. Raymona McKinnon says

    Would love to win one. I love crafting and would use it for several of my projects. My daughter is a principal at a local school and she would love to to have access to one for school use.

  15. says

    please, please, please pick me! I want one soooo very badly! I am a paper craft addict and I would love to have one! I will make you something real pretty!!!!! Hee hee

  16. Kim Parkman says

    I don’t know if I have enough room to list all of the things that I would make with this machine. I guess I’d start with bridesmaids gifts for my cousin’s wedding, then I’d move on to baby gifts for the zillions of new babies in my life. Next would be projects around the house. Then onto holiday gifts…

  17. Joy says

    I have a large Ikea frame that has been sitting in the back of my closet waiting to be filled with some fabulous inspirational yet personal word art!

  18. Rae Ann says

    I have been coveting labels for my pantry for a while now. A Silhouette is totally on my Christmas list!

  19. Pheobie Thomas says

    Hello! I’m moving into my first home, and I would love to use this machine to make labels for the keepsake gifts for guests who attend my housewarming party! This machine would also come in handy around the house as far as organizing and decorating.

  20. trek says

    I have been entering every Silhouette contest I’ve seen!
    While this is an excellent tool, it just isn’t in the budget for me.

    I would make labels for my clothes baskets so everyone would know where to toss what items and so make laundry sorting something that happens when the clothes reach the laundry room – instead of when I am trying to run loads.

    I would also make labels to stick on all of the Altoids tins I’ve been using to organize the tiny drill and screwdriver bits. After that, I would label the tea tins that store my office supplies and all of the nuts, bolts, screws, and nails in the garage.

    Next, I would teach my 6th grader how to use it so that she could label all of her books, notebooks, folders, etc for school. Her handwriting is so hard to read that everything has to be typed up and taped to each item. I would encourage her to use the Silhouette for all of her school posters and projects and her stuff would be neater and she would stress less over grades on reports and things!

  21. Susan Hitt says

    I would love to make some cute art for my walls. I also saw some really cute pillows made with the iron on transfer paper.

  22. Brenda A. says

    The main appeal of the Silhouette is that it is so versatile, but I have been wanting to get one to label my daughters toys.

  23. LaTonya says

    Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway. I really enjoy making invitations and cards. I designed my wedding invitiations and my husband’s business school graduation invitations. The Silhouette will help me execute designs that have been difficult to accomplish without it.

    I also love to do DIY projects and artwork. My husband and I don’t have a lot of money, but I would still like to make our house a home with nice pieces of artwork and by doing creative projects.

  24. says

    I would make everything you showed and then some–would love to have this right now, preparing for my daughter’s baby shower! Think of what I could do with that!

  25. Liz Rivera says

    I would love to be a stay at home mom with the opportunity to replace my income with a variety of crafts. Plus to purchase one of these is totally not in my budget. So I would love win it and DIY craft craft craft!

  26. Debra says

    I would love to make embellishments for pillows with my Silhouette. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  27. Marlene says

    I’ve been wanting to get a Silhouette for a while now and unfortunately, it’s not in the budget. I would love to make art for my son’s room. Making stencils would also be great!

  28. Lorna says

    The Silhouette is so amazing! I just can’t put into one comment section everything that I would love to do with this! I would customize Birthday cards, decorate my two teenage daughters rooms and create stencils for my walls. This is just the beginning!

  29. Sandy P says

    I would make some pretty birth announcements for my granddaughter when she is born in November and a pretty etched mirror for her room!

  30. Deborah says

    Oh, this would be awesome! I am currently working on my daughters nursery so labeling things would always come in handy!

  31. Danette says

    My hubby and I have been giving homemade Christmas gifts over the past few years and winning the Silhouette would open up all kinds of gift ideas for coming years! I especially liked the idea of Glass Etching!

  32. Di Stubley says

    I would love a Silhouette to make decor items for my home and also for my grand babies rooms!!

  33. Jisela says

    Currently I free hand cut felt letters to applique on fabric banners I give as bridal or babyshower gifts. The Silhouette would help my letters look for uniform and cut the time it takes to cut them out free hand. There are so many other things I would love to try as a homeschooling mom, the ideas are endless!

  34. EM says

    What wouldn’t I use it for? We do a lot of entertaining, so I’d probably use it for invitations, place cards, and the like.

  35. Brenda says

    Thanks for such a great giveaway..If I win, I woud like to make labels….and I’m sure lots of other awesome things.

  36. Becky Gifford says

    I have my only daughters wedding coming in December. I would make EVERYTHING>>>>>>>>>> with this amazing machine.

  37. Caitlinc says

    I am getting married next year and we are going the budget route- like, reallllyy budget. This would sure help save a little moolah!

  38. says

    I would love to have one of these for crafting with my little girls, making fun birthday party favors and decor, and creating pretty gifts.

  39. Suzanne says

    Yes! I spent a couple of hours yesterday with a exacto knife as I was making a glass etched gift for a shower that I attended last night. Although it looked fine, it would have looked better with a Silhouette. I have so many cool ideas that this would help me to create.

    PS- This morning I resisted the urge to touch my iPad until I did my workout. Your post yesterday resonated with my procrastination problem this summer. Thanks, Diane.


  40. Debby says

    I have always wanted a silhouette. I would etch a paper weight, monogram a pillow and make tags for some baskets! How fun! I can think
    think of so many projects. Thanks for a great give away!

  41. Jaci says

    I home school my autistic son and would label all of our materials. I would also use this to help us make new center games, that reflect his interests. I am also an avid DIYer, I have all kinds of personalized gifts in mind for relatives. I can’t even begin to imagine all of the possible things we could make if we won. Thanks for the opportunity!

  42. Sherry Nichols says

    i have been “stalking” your blog for a long time. LOVE all your ideas! It amazes me that common things can be used for staging house decor as well as just tweeking something to make it fit into your decor! Love it all! i have also been thinking about a silhouette for a long time. Keep telling my husband that I could do this or that with it instead of printing it on paper and then trying my hardest to transfer it onto wood and sometimes my walls. Would love the opportunity to own a silhouette!!! xoxo

  43. Misty M says

    oh.em.gee. I would LOVE to win this fancy little machine!!! From what I have seen on many blogs {including yours}, the possibilities are endless. Im sure that I would put some fancy font on everything that is sitting still in my home…starting with the pantry!!! Thanks for the chance to win :)

  44. Beth says

    Wow, all the possibilities are overwhelming. I’m mainly a sewer but glass etching has always interested me. So many projects!

  45. Rebecca says

    Wow, what a wonderful tool!

    I would start off by putting monograms above our towel rack so that each person would put their towel in the right place and stop trying to steal mine.

    Then I would utilize it to label all of my school supplies to simplify our back to school routine and make it easier for students to find new things.

  46. Linda says

    I’m dreaming of a bedroom make over and there are so many sweet things to put there…something like “with you I am at home”. That is what I would love to do!

  47. says

    Oh wow…the question is, what wouldn’t I make! LOL! I am thinking I would start simple with labels and then move into more creative items. I would love to win this and try it out….have been dying for one! Thanks for hosting….Blessings, Vicky

  48. says

    This wonderful item has been on my wishlist like forever (okay, since I discovered it). I would like to experiment with my apothecary labels… *dream oh dream*

    I am one of the meeting planners for a women’s club, and I would love to use the Silhouette for our meetings. Having something with our logo as a favor at the luncheons would be an extra special treat! That would be for sixty+ ladies, so the Silhouette would make it so much easier and faster.

  132. Delight Ellis says

    Wow, a Silhouette! Who wouldn’t love to win this giveaway! One is on my wish list. Let’s make..labels for the pantry, signs, monograms, stencils for glass etching, etc..etc..etc! Endless possibilities!

  133. Sheryl says

    As I looked at your blog and how this machine works I am totally amazed. I think I would make labels for mugs for my next girls quilting party, as a take away gift. I love crafting and this machine would take it to the next level for sure:)!

  134. Lisa Romans says

    If I win ths I would use it in my classroom at my school to create labels, use it to mke cut outs for student projects, I would cut out lettering for my display boards and so many other projects or school nd home!

  135. J Freeman says

    I have a granddaughter who loves doing anything artsy, I would actually offer it to her art teacher this year. Her art teacher is super and would be gob smacked if she actually had one to use in her art class.


  136. Pat says

    Have been intrigued by the wonders of Silhouette for awhile now. So many great ideas! Here’s hoping!

  137. Bethany Jones says

    I would like to try it all. The glass etching excites me. So does the vinyl decor opportunities. The tattoos are fun because I can be the cool Aunt and make what the kids want. So much to make. Love it!

  138. Susan D- says

    With several new babies in the family, I think some personalized onesies would be my first project!

  139. Linda Southworth says

    I am ready to make a few word signs and I see the glass etching kit which interests me. Now I just need the Silhouette!

  140. Darla K W says

    There are so many things I’d do with this “winner” I’m not sure I can list them all, but suffice to say…I have twin granddaughters and I’m always making something for them and the rest of my family and friends! This would be such a wonderful gift for myself I’d go right to work! Thanks for even offering it! Best of days to you!

  152. says

    I would love to have one of these!! I have two side tables that are like trays with stands. My husband has put drinks that leave condensation, buckled spots on it and I want to put a new bottom on them. One with a subway style writing is what I want to so, but would have to draw it on and then paint it. This would do the tick! Nicer and faster!!

  153. Sue says

    My mind is racing with all the possibilities for the Silhouette at home and in my classroom!

  154. Elizabeth Renton says

    I’d love to make some cute stickers for my daughter. She is obsessed with stickers right now!!

  155. Aimee Logan says

    This would be my dream come true! I have been wanting a silhouette FOREVER, and my list of projects is growing faster than my savings. To start, I have a massive collection of reclaimed wood that is dying to be beautified…I am thinking stenciled quotes (ex: “to thine own self be true”) in a cool typeface with bright flashy colors against the unfinished wood surface would be fun. Thanks for the chance, Diane! Your blog is inspiring.

  156. mary says

    Oh, thanks for the chance to win! I would really like to try the glass etching kit, neat way to make expensive looking gifts for little money!

  167. Paula Miller says

    I would love to win! The first thing I would make would be labels to help with organizing my home office!

  168. Alicia Turner says

  179. Shari says

  183. says

    I am a photographer that is starting my business. (you can find some of my work on Facebook-nancykingshaw/nancyshawphotography). Money is VERY tight. Most of my work has been charity work with special needs children, seniors that cannot afford professional photography, and Southwest Christian Care. This would help me soooo much with what I do and what I could give to others. If you were to pick me, I would feel incredibly blessed.

  184. Jessica says

    I would love to customize the kids school supplies, make labels for around the house and so many other things! Thanks!

  185. Lisa says

    I would make labels, tags, stencils, and so many other things. What a great prize! Love your blog too.

  186. says

    I forgot to add what I would do with this wonderful gift. Every picture that I give to people could have that extra personal touch. Whether it’s etching on a plaque, monograming tags, stamping a box, etc. I would make it so personal, each person would feel extra special. With this machine, the sky is the limit!

  187. Rhona says

    I can’t begin to name all the projects I would undertake with this amazing machine. The first thing I would like to do is some subway art.

  188. Lynne says

    I am an avid crafter and follower of your blog. I can see labels for my craft room, gift tags, wall quotes… the possibilities are endless.

  189. says


    I have read all the amazing things people want to do with this incredible machine. I think each and every one who has entered is deserving of a machine like this one. I would love to organize the entire household and make gifts for all my friends and loved ones. I am recently disabled and will never be able to purchase a machine like this one. However I do feel blessed with what I do have and strongly believe in “paying it forward” for there are people out there that have helped me and I try my very best to “pay it forward” to anyone I see that needs help. This is where the machine comes into play, I could make amazing things and then give to people who truly need a hand like I do now. The gifts while not big would be straight from the heart and “In My Own Style.” I thank you for this wonderful opportunity and I love your blog.

  190. Randi says

    Honestly, I’m not sure what I would make FIRST. I keep seeing so many things made with a Silhouette. It seems like a pretty talented machine. Maybe I would send cards to my little grandkids, and tell them Grandma won a cool new toy for her to play with.

  191. Christine says

    Ohhh – I would love to be able to use this for my scrapbooking! Also, to make personalized gifts/tags. Thanks for the great give-a-ways!

  192. Nadine says

    Thank you for another great giveaway. I love reading your blog. I am an Art teacher, mother and member of our local miniature club as well as several other groups. The silhouette would give me the ability to make things for school, our home and groups I belong to. I would love to experiment and make all knds of thing that are too numerous to mention. I have wanted to get one of these machines but am a single mom and just never seem to have the extra funds to invest in one. This would be so great to win!

  193. says

    I would create adorable vintage looking tags for the items I plan to sell in the Etsy shop I am in the process of starting!

  194. Jess Willard says

    What would I do…..sheesh. The first thing I would do is create our family name to put on the wall in out entry way. The next would be designs for my daughters lamp shade (on the inside) and then on to gifts. I would make holiday gifts for EVERYONE!

  195. says

    Ah! We are expecting out first little one and will start planning our nursery soon. We find out the gender in a couple of weeks. I would absolutely use this for creating my artwork and quotes/bible versus and such. Eek!

  196. Margaret says

    My daughter just got a job as an Enrichment teacher in an elementary school, so I would give it to her to make cool, fun stuff for her new classroom!

  197. Kym says

    I would love to be able to make my own vinyl wall words using my favorite scriptures! Thanks for the review and the chance to win!

  199. Sarah Lehman says

    I am getting married to the love of my life, and high school sweetie, this February 2014. We have been together for 8 years and our families are REALLY looking forward to finally celebrating our union. As many couples are, we are planning our wedding on a strict budget. This machine would make many of our dreams come to life that have been sidelined due to budget. Gift bags, welcome bags, party favors, initiations, thank you cards….the list goes on. Thank you for your consideration, and good luck to everyone!

  200. says

    Oh my goodness. Anything that doesn’t already have a label will definitely have it’s own unique label. And, a load of those things already labeled? They just might get new labels!

  201. Jane says

    If I was lucky enough to win, I’d make quilt labels for the gals in my guild, monogrammed luggage tags for my traveller friends, etch some wine glasses for a cute engaged couple and, for me, I’d have lots of fun!

  202. Michelle Wilson says

    Like you said, the holiday’s are approaching!! I would love to make my own labels for all things holiday! Thank you for offering this great giveaway!

  203. Joyce Harris says

    What couldn’t I make? Customized labels for the gifts I make, cards, vinyl cutouts and some custom shoes!

  204. caitlin says

    I would love to have a Silhouette machine! I’d love to make my own vinyl decals, but I’m also impressed with the glass etching and using it to draw with a ballpoint pen. So cool!

  205. Brandi says

    I would love to win the Silhouette! The first project I would make would be to use an old window and do a quote on the window made from vinyl letters to hang in my kitchen. Love your blog!!!!

  206. Faye says

    Sometimes it is so hard to think of a personalized gift! I would make sets of monogrammed glass dessert plates for family at Christmas. Another project I would like to try is etching an appropriate word or two on the glass of picture frames–such as “Just Born” or “2 years old” or “new grad.”
    Oh, what possibilities!
    Thanks for the opportunity for one of your readers to win a Silhouette Portrait!

  207. AAllen says

    I’d love to win the silhouette – I’d do vinyl on it. Currently I have a church friend doing all of the vinyl for me, but this would win me independence! Happy Thursday.

  208. Melissa says

    I’d enjoy either one but the vinyl one is the one I’d probably reach for again and again.

  209. Sally says

    I really enjoy your blog. Look forward to it. I love to paint furniture and do crafts and decorate. You are great inspiration. I would use the silhouette for my scrapbooking and card making as well as for things such as labels and decor items.

  210. says

    Thanks for the review of the Silhouette. I’ve been mulling over whether to spend the money on one or not. Now I see that there are many more options than I had originally thought. Winning one would be the icing on the cake…or craft in this case:)

  211. says

    The Silhouette would be so useful with my Girl Scout troop! We are always making banners, t-shirts, crafts, etc. that would be so much easier (and more creative) with the Silhouette. Thanks for the chance to win.

  212. Beth says

    I am I the middle of pantry and closet reorganization. The nicest thing would be for me to be able put pretty labels on everything! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I’d love try my hand at glass etching, so making vinyl cutouts would be at the top of my list! Thanks for the giveaway, Diane, and also for all the inspiration you share with us!

  214. Melissa says

    I have so many ideas for the siloutte machine. I have two girls that would enjoy helping me make great gifts for teachers and neighbors. It would be a great way to make beautiful gifts as a way to tell those you come in contact with how they are appreciated.

  215. says

    Awesome giveaway — thanks for the opportunity!

  230. Michelle says

    Oh my GOSH……The question should be what I wouldn’t do with this! Artwork around the house for sure! Labeling things like mad! Christmas gifts galore!

  231. Cathy says

    Oh golly! I’ve wanted one for a long time. I’m a seamstress. I would love to be able to use it to create fabric to make wonderful pilloww. Maybe even sell some of my goodies!!! That would be just the beginning of what I would do with the Silhouette.

  232. Lesley Raebel says

    There are so many things I would make. 1st would be something besides owls for my classroom. I put up a few owls last year, and my daughter made more. Then my students gifted more. Owls were everywhere. I need something new.
    Then I would make a great design for a coffee table DIY I saw on Pinterest.
    My coffee table is blah – but there will be no owls.

  239. Suzanne Weber says

    I’d make a monogram. I didn’t have a middle initial until I married and I always suffered monogram envy, so after being married to Mr. Terrific for 27 years it’s time to finally time to get on with it. Thanks for the opportunity!!

    Betsy in the sunny Seattle suburbs

  254. Rae Ramses says

I truly enjoy your information and wish you much success.

    Hi Diane! Long time stalker of your blog here! There are about 101 projects off the top of my head I’d love to make with the Portrait! The glass etching is something I’m really interested in, and want to etch a set of glassware with something unique. Next up would be stencil making for a beach cottage sign I have in mind. The possiblities are endless!

    Thanks for this opportunity! Best of luck to all who enter!


  261. Anne K. says

    OOO! Just used ten lbs. of blueberries to make blueberry jam which I give as gifts. I did use the labels I received with the jars but would love to use something with more PIZAZZ! Also love to wrap gifts and use special tags and the Silouette sounds terrific for that too.
    Thanks for all your great ideas!

  269. says

    As a student, I can’t affort half of the stuff I want to have for Project Life. I use free printables which is fine, but a silhouette is my greatest dream! I work a lot with photos and journaling on them. But having some words out of paper on them, that would be so great! I already thought about asking someone to make me some, but as most of you live on the other side of the ocean…

  270. LeAnn says

    OH The things I would make! I would make a ton of things for my school!
    I am the manager for the lunchroom, and we need to put up a lot of things about the new regulations of fruits and veggies and all of the fun new rules that they must have some on their trays.
    And I love that they sell kits to start you out so you are not lost! (Well, not in my case ! I am always lost!)
    Thanks for the chance!!

    Oh my gosh, don’t know where to start with everything I’d LIKE to do with the Silhouette! But the first thing that came to my mind was using it to make stencils for painting, etching, frosting, etc.
