    • And there are SO many…I feel like I learn new Silhouette possibilities almost every day. The creativity is really endless!

  1. Thank you for such a generous giveaway! I would love to have the cameo 3! I have a wedding and a few baby showers coming up and I know the cameo can help me make some really special decorations ❤️

    • Oh my goodness, weddings and baby showers are like the Silhouette gold mine…so many things to craft!! That would be perfect!

    • The new one is so great…I love the dual cartridge and the automatic blade. Stocking up on blades and mats is a great idea, I do that during this sale too!

  2. While I’d really ♥ a Cameo3 (I currently cut with a Portrait) for it’s extra cutting size options, I’d like a Curio to try engraving & stuff like that. Thank you for promoting Silhouette & hosting this awesome giveaway!

    • I had a Portrait for 4 years before I upgraded to the Cameo, and I never really felt limited by it! The Curio is really neat too, I love being able to engrave and cut/sketch on thicker materials. There will be amazing bundles for both of those machines in the Black Friday sale ;-) Good luck in the giveaway!!

  3. Thank you so much even just for the advice on what to get to get started. I have never owned a cameo or portrait but I’ve been diy crafting for years and I’ve just recently been hearing about all the time saving wonders a cutting machine like a silhouette can do!! I’d love to try the cameo 3 for the size abilities, but the portrait alone would already be such a blessing. Thank you for all that you do in educating us crafters!!

    • You are so welcome…I’m glad you found it helpful!! It really is amazing all the things you can do with one of these little machines!

  4. I am just getting started in the DIY/Crafting world and I am really enjoying it. It allows me to have “me” time! I am really interested in the cameo 3! It looks like it would be a great addition to my DIY inventory!

    • Yes!! That’s why I started, too. So nice to unwind and make things…it makes me feel relaxed but productive at the same time :-) The Cameo is an amazing DIY tool, if I could only have one thing in my DIY inventory that would definitely be it!

  5. I often look at cute crafty items with vinal cutout and love them but don’t have a way to make them. Winning one would make it possible :) Thanks for an amazing give away

    • The Curio is really fun too! I don’t use it nearly as often as my Cameo but it can do lots of really neat things, I need to spend more time experimenting with all those materials. Good luck!

    • Hi Danielle, the transfer tape really only works with vinyl…it might work with the foil sticker paper but it would likely rip up the regular sticker paper, though I’ve never tried it.

  6. My hobby is very expensive, lol! If I had to pick something to add to my collection, I’d pick rhinestones. And vinyl. And another cameo to supplement the work flow. Oh, and more blades, too. ?

    • All good things! Though I don’t know how I’d handle having 2 Cameos going at once, I feel like I’d definitely screw them both up somehow, haha. I know people do that, though, which amazes me!

  7. My Silhouette is the best tool I have ever purchased. I’d LOVE to have the newest version. Thanks for the opportunity to win another.

    • Yes, I always stock up on blades and mats during this sale. And the pen holder is a great tool to have, too, I use it with fine point sharpies all the time!

  8. I have a Cameo 3, and love it. I would wish for a Cameo Curio, so I could try to do some embossing and whatever else I can learn to do on the Curio, that I can’t so with my Cameo 3.

    • The Curio is really neat too…I’ve done some engraving, cutting thicker materials, and sketching on thicker materials like wood. Lots of possibilities!

  9. I can’t wait to get a silhouette cameo!!! My friend has both the cricut and silhouette cameo and definitely prefers the cameo!

  10. I need all the machines! lol I have a 2nd edition Cameo 1 so I would definitely like a Cameo 3. I’m also wanting to play with foil! It’s so purty! :)

  11. I’ve just seen this item on Facebook and Iam fascinated by it!!
    I would love to own one.
    Thank you for the opportunity

  12. I have seen so many amazing ideas for Christmas gifts already this year, and they all use the Silhouette. I would love to be able to make some of these crafts!

    • There are some really incredible ideas out there…I remember being frustrated before I got mine because every time I saw a project on Pinterest I liked it would use a Silhouette so I couldn’t do it. Having one opens up so many possibilities! Good luck!

  13. I try to get my year supply of things like blades and mats during their sale since the prices are so great. I want to purchase the upgrade from Designer Edition to Business.

    • So glad to hear that!! That’s one of the biggest reasons I wrote this post, so that folks could easily send it to husbands for gift ideas ;-)

  14. I’ve been comparing the silhouette and cricut for a few months! I think the Black Friday prices are going to sway my vote!! Can’t wait to have one!

    • The Black Friday prices & bundles are really amazing, the best I’ve ever seen! If you’re in the market for a Cameo you’ll definitely want to check out the pre-sale on Tuesday, there are some really unique and exclusive deals/machines that will sell out very quickly!

  15. I would love a silhouette cameo 3. I’m just learning and would be able to do so much with this. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  16. I’d love a Silhouette Cameo 3! Plus some of the Embossable Foil to try. Thanks so much for all the great ideas you share with us!

  17. Thanks so much for your blog and the chance to win a Cameo 3. I am also getting excited for the early Black Friday sale. I have a reminder on my phone set and ready to go!

  18. Oh, how exciting!

    I would love a Silhouette Cameo 3. I have an original Cameo and we have been having a blast creating shirts with heat transfer vinyl. I would love to try it with fabric to make cutting pieces for appliques faster than I can do by hand.

  19. I love my moms Cricuit and I was checking out a Cameo in the store over the weekend. They are beautiful very versatile pieces of equipment! Even if I don’t win it is definitely on my Christmas list!

  20. Would love, love to win a Cameo 3- I purchased a Portrait last year and I use it nearly every day- it would be fabulous to have a Cameo however – thanks for the give-away

    • I used my Portrait all the time for 4 years, it’s an amazing little machine…but I just upgraded to the Cameo 3 this summer and it has been great! The dual cartridge, auto blade, and larger cutting space makes such a big difference. Good luck, Gail!

  21. Thank you for doing a giveaway! I have had my eye on one of these crafting beauties and still haven’t purchased one, but it would be awesome to win one!

  22. My daughter has a silhouette and has been taking classes to learn how to use it. I would have to defer to her on what she needs/wants.

    • Haha I know the feeling…I want all the things!! I am loving the upgrades on the Cameo 3 – especially the dual cartridge and auto blade.

  23. I love my original Cameo but would love to give her a little sister (although I suppose Cameo 3 would be the big sister! :-D ). Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway!

  24. I loved reading this post and your fall/winter farm sign. We have a Silhouette at my school and I love that I can create all my own letters and di-cuts for bulletin boards. I wpuld love to have one of my own to really explore what I could do with it.

    • I used to be a teacher and am so bummed that I didn’t discover Silhouette until after I became a stay at home mom…there are so many great Silhouette ideas for the classroom! It’s awesome that your school has one – I think every school should. Good luck, Valerie!

    • The Mint is such a neat and fun machine, I love making stamps with it…and there’s a really unbelievable Mint deal coming in the Black Friday sale ;-)

    • The latest Cameo and Portrait are truly amazing…and I love being able to design anything I want in Silhouette Studio! I love my Silhouette!

  25. Would LOVE to own a Cameo 3.
    My wish list would also include Cutting Mats, Blades and Tattoo paper

    I have been a good Gal dear Santa

    Thank You Meredith

    • They are pretty much the best crafting tool ever, I don’t know how I could do without mine! I use it ALL the time. Good luck, Cassandra!

    • It is SO handy to have when cutting off a roll! It’s kind of a pain to store, since it doesn’t really collapse, but if you have a place to put it it’s definitely a good thing to have.

  26. I would love to have the Cameo 3. I have the original Cameo and LOVE ? it but would love the new one because it is wireless! This will make it so much easier to take it back and forth between my classroom and home! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  27. I have only used a Cricut, and never updated it. This would be amazing to win.
    I saw the Silhouette CAMEO® 3 it’s a beauty. So many awesome looking machines. (my FB & blog emails are different. Please contact me via blog email if I win ;) I know it’s a long shot but, you never know right? Thanks

  28. I have a cricut and have been looking at the Silhouette because it does things a little easier it seems than a cricut. It seems to have a little more versatility, but I can’t afford it just yet. Winning the giveaway would solve my problem. Thank you for the comparison.

    • I totally understand…I saved up for a long time to buy my Portrait when I was first getting started! Fingers crossed for you, Christina!

  29. I have an older silhouette and it is time for a newer version. I love crafting with it and have become addicted to making vinyl gifts for my family and friends.

    • I *love* making gifts with my Silhouette…my favorite part is the inevitable “you MADE this?” reaction I always get ;-) Fingers crossed you get your upgrade, Melissa!

  30. How to pick? Any of these machines will make crafting MUCH easier, but I’d love the Cameo 3. To be able to cut down on time by being able to use both a pen AND a blade together is genius. Plus, I think my mom has been eyeing my machine. I’d love to upgrade and give her my mine. She’s seen me work it enough to “kinda” know how to use it and not be quite so intimidated by it.

    • Oh, how perfect would that be? You could give her some lessons and have mother-daughter craft days! So fun. Good luck, Randi!

  31. I would love the Silhouette Cameo 3. I see all of the amazing projects that everyone makes and I would love to be able to do that too! Thank you for the chance to win!

    • I am still amazed by the projects I see other people make – this machine has endless possibilities! You’re very welcome, good luck, Lynn!

    • I’d like to do more fabric cutting with my Cameo, too…I haven’t done much but it’s such a neat feature. As far as Designer’s Edition goes, there’s going to be a great deal on software for the Black Friday Sale ;-)

  32. I’d absolutley love to win the Cameo 3, gosh I love my original Cameo and would love to see what all the things it can do!!!

  33. I love your lists! I am new to the Silhouette world so the guidance is helpful. I would like to try using rolls of vinyl and a roll feeder. I need to play around with different materials. It’s all a little overwhelming right now!

stay-at-home mom to three beautiful children, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God. I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
