THE ULTIMATE SILHOUETTE GIFT GUIDE & WISH LIST
Psst – Looking for gift ideas? I’ve used an asterisk (*) to denote any products that would make great gifts for ANY Silhouette crafter – whether they’ve been using their machine for years or they are a brand new Silhouette user! So just grab a few of those starred items, wrap them up, and you’ll be the even more popular than Santa on Christmas morning ;-)
~ Silhouette vs. Cricut ~
The first thing you need is a Silhouette machine. I am not exaggerating when I say that a Silhouette will completely change your crafting life – it did for me! I can’t really speak much to the Silhouette vs. Cricut debate because I’ve never used a Cricut. I have read over and over again (and heard from friends) that Silhouette’s design software (called Silhouette Studio) is much more powerful than Cricut’s version, which is a big plus to me. I love how easy it is to make my own designs, and I never feel limited by what I’m able to do or not do with my software. Beyond that, I think it’s just a matter of personal preference. But if you’ve decided on #TeamSilhouette (woohoo!), your next decision is which machine to purchase. (Keep reading…)
~ CAMEO vs. Portrait (plus the other machines) ~
Silhouette makes two main craft cutting machines – the CAMEO and the Portrait. Both of these machines use very small blades to cut whatever kind of design you can dream up out of all kinds of materials – card stock, paper, vinyl, heat transfer vinyl, sticker paper, fabric, and more. The biggest differences between these two are size (CAMEO cuts up to 12″ wide and the Portrait cuts up to 8″ wide – they can both cut essentially unlimited lengths when you’re using rolls of vinyl) and the price. When I was just starting out, I bought a Portrait, and that was a great decision for me at the time. Read all about 3 Reasons Why I Chose the Silhouette Portrait here. I’ve since upgraded to the CAMEO 3, and I LOVE the extra cutting width and the dual cartridge design. You can also read more specifics about the Silhouette Cameo 4 vs. the new Portrait 3 here.
Silhouette makes three more machines – the Curio, the Mint, and the Alta. The Curio is also a cutting machine with a platform base for cutting thicker and more rigid materials, as well as etching and stippling on metal sheets. I’d call it a companion machine to the CAMEO or Portrait, not a replacement. The Mint is in it’s own category completely – it does no cutting at all! The Mint is a custom stamp maker. It would make a great gift for ANY crafter! Finally, there’s the Silhouette ALTA, which is a 3D printer! I haven’t been able to try it out yet but I’ve seen amazing things my blog friends have crafted up – personalized key chains, ornaments, even cookie cutters!
Extra blades and mats. Even though your machine likely came with a blade and mat, you’ll always want to have a fresh set on hand. Your blade and mat may need to be replaced after a few weeks, or they could last you for months at a time – it all depends on how often you use them and what types of materials you are cutting.
Fabric Blade. You’ll also need to have a fresh blade on hand to keep just for fabric – it’s identical to the regular blade, just a different color so it’s easy to keep separate, just like you keep separate fabric scissors so they don’t get dull by cutting paper.
Hook Tool. Absolutely a must-have for weeding designs (that means removing the material that’s not part of your design after cutting), especially when you’re cutting vinyl and heat transfer material.
Scraper. I own two of these because I’m always putting one down and forgetting where it is! This is used for pressing down transfer tape onto your vinyl designs, and then pressing down vinyl onto your project surfaces. It’s great for applying vinyl without bubbles!
(Note: The hook and scraper tool also come as part of the vinyl starter kit, so there’s no need to buy them separately if you’re already planning on getting one of those kits. You could also get the Silhouette Tool Kit, which includes a few other handy tools as well.)
MATERIALS FOR BEGINNERS
Vinyl. This is the quintessential material for a Silhouette. It is incredibly easy to work with, you can use it on all sorts of project mediums (glass, canvas, card stock, ornaments, walls, plastic bins, or use it as as a stencil on all kinds of things…) and it looks so professional! If you own a Silhouette and haven’t used vinyl, well, that’s kind of like having a really nice sports car and only driving it around the neighborhood. You’ve got to try it! The Vinyl Starter Kit is terrific for beginners: it contains 4 large sheets of vinyl, a roll of transfer paper, plus the hook and scraper tool – everything you need to get started!
Transfer Tape. Transfer tape is kind of like a big piece of painter’s tape. When you cut a design out of vinyl, you weed the extra vinyl that’s not part of your design, cover your design with transfer paper and press it with your scraper, then lift the transfer paper – your vinyl design will lift with the transfer paper. Then you line up your design on your project surface, stick it down (again pressing firmly with the scraper), and peel up the transfer paper – the vinyl will remain on your project, perfectly lined up! It is virtually impossible to use vinyl without some type of transfer paper, so if you plan to cut vinyl with your Silhouette be sure you also have a roll of this stuff!
Heat Transfer Material. Here’s another amazing and simple use for a Silhouette with super professional looking results. You cut out designs from this stuff and then iron them onto fabric. I’ve used it for things like baby onesies (oh, so many onesies!), a few Christmas shirts (here and here), tote bags, and lots more! I love coming up with the perfect, personalized saying or design to put on a shirt or onesie as a gift.
*Adhesive Card Stock. I always recommend that beginners start with making greeting cards. It’s a great way to get comfortable with your machine and card stock is inexpensive, so it doesn’t matter how many times you mess up the cuts. Plus, you can start with really simple designs and get more and more complicated. Silhouette’s adhesive card stock is great for greeting cards or scrapbooking, and it’s a good way to get familiar with a “kiss cut” – that is, cutting just the material but not the backing paper.
*Sticker Paper. Stickers are a great way to get your toes wet with the print-and-cut technique – the possibilities are endless. No, your Silhouette doesn’t actually print (I was confused about that at first and I get questions about it often) – when you print to your printer from Silhouette Studio, you have the option of adding “registration marks” which are little shapes on the corner of the page. When you load your printed paper into the Silhouette, the Silhouette will “read” those registration marks to orient itself on your design. Then it will cut out your printed designs! This is really great for printing all kinds of stickers. I used a variety of sticker paper to make these return address labels, and you can also make amazing personalized planner stickers like these! The sticker sampler pack is great so you can get an idea of all the different kinds of sticker paper Silhouette makes – there are a bunch, and they’re all pretty fabulous!
*Chipboard. Chipboard is thin cardboard, about the thickness of a cereal box. It’s great for making small boxes, gift tags (like these!), and adding dimension or rigidity to other projects. This is a good material to have on hand in your stash.
MATERIALS & TOOLS FOR INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED USERS
Designer Edition. If you’ve been using your Silhouette for a while and are comfortable with Silhouette Studio, you may be ready to upgrade to the Designer Edition of the software! Don’t worry, it’s not a whole different program…upgrading to Designer Edition just “unlocks” some great features within the Silhouette Studio program you’re already familiar with. My favorite things are the ruler, being able to erase and cut through single lines rather than entire shapes, and the ability to open SVG files. (In case you’re wondering, the Business Edition is another step up from Designer Edition, and it unlocks the ability to save as SVG files, along with several other handy features for folks that use their machine more frequently.) Check out all the levels of software upgrades here.
Deep Cut Blade. Ready to experiment with thicker materials, like felt, craft foam, and more? Time to try out the deep cut blade. It can cut up to 2mm thick. (Note – this blade is only compatible with the CAMEO 3, Curio, and Portrait 2.)
*Etching. Vinyl makes a great stencil for glass etching. I’ve made all kinds of personalized etched glass gifts like casserole dishes, wine glasses, and even a whiskey decanter set! Grab the Glass Etching Starter Kit to get started!
*Tattoo Paper. This is SO fun to play with!! It works without a Silhouette too, but being able to cut around each tattoo with your Silhouette for nice neat little temporary tattoos is great. I tried this out the first time to make personalized tattos for my sister’s bachelorette party, and it was amazing!! Make tattoos for parties, kid’s treat bags, holidays, or just for fun! Plus…they have metallic gold and silver tattoo paper! That’s is on MY Christmas list for sure. (Note – you’ll need an ink-jet printer to use printable tattoo paper.)
*Wood Vinyl. I tried this out on this project, and it is really neat! It’s basically just vinyl that’s looks like wood…so you can imagine there are some neat possibilities here for sign making and other embellishments.
Printable Vinyl and Printable Heat Transfer. This is great when you want more intricate multi-colored designs but don’t want to layer your vinyl or heat transfer material. Print, cut, and apply!
*Specialty Kits – Unlock some new crafting possibilities with some of Silhouette’s newer starter kits, like the Silkscreen Starter Kit (silkscreen your own custom shirts and apparel items!) and the Doming Kit (make adorable custom domed stickers. There’s also the Jewelry Making Kit, which involves printing and cutting shrink plastic sheets to make adorable little jewelry charms!
*More Specialty Media items! Silhouette makes a huge variety of specialty media…I didn’t list them all here, but you really can’t go wrong with any of them! (Psst – even if you have a Cricut, you can use any of these specialty media items with your machine, too!)
NICE-TO-HAVE ACCESSORIES & MORE
*Silhouette Mint. This is such a fun little machine! It makes custom stamps that you can personalize and design yourself. Fun for any crafter, but especially great for anyone with a crafting business or other side hustle like a direct sales business. You can make return address stamps, branded stamps to use on receipts, packing slips, packages, etc.
Roll Feeder. If you find yourself often cutting directly from rolls of vinyl or HTV, the roll feeder is a life saver. It keeps your rolls feeding perfectly straight! The only bummer is it’s bulky to store when you’re not using it. (The Cameo 4 comes with a built-in roll feeder, so this is only necessary for older models.)
*Dust Cover. Though not completely necessary, a dust cover helps keep your machine clean and protected when not in use. It’s also fun to customize with HTV!
*Pen Holder. The pen holder allows you to use your own pens, markers, and sharpies to sketch on materials with your Silhouette.
24″ Cutting Mat (for CAMEOs). Really nice to have when cutting larger sheets of paper or vinyl!

They are magical, that’s for sure!! :-)
Love to have the Silhouette Cameo 3. Thanks for the giveaway!
You’re so welcome, Pat! Good luck!
What a special thing to do. I have wanted a Silhouette Cameo for a very long time. *crossing fingers*
Crossing my fingers for you too, Christine!
Love to have the cameo 3 black edition
I love the color options they are coming out with…the black looks so chic!
Excited about new crafting possibilities!
And there are SO many…I feel like I learn new Silhouette possibilities almost every day. The creativity is really endless!
Fingers crossed! I’d love to learn how to make lovely vinyl lettered signs and home decor.
The vinyl signs and home decor are my FAVORITE things to make with my Silhouette. Fingers crossed for you too, Jen!
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 EMBOSSABLE FOIL
I haven’t tried that yet but I really want to! It looks so neat!
Ooohhh, I would love the updated cameo. And I love to stock up on mats and blades during a sale. Thanks!
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!
The possibilities of being crafty are endless!
They really are! I feel like I discover new possibilities with my Silhouette almost every day!
Thanks for sharing your ideas! So creative!
Thanks Amy!! Good luck!
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!!
I would love the cameo 3. This single mom needs a second income and I know this would help!
It’s amazing how many people have thriving businesses just using their Cameo…so many possibilities! Good luck!
I would love the Cameo 3! I have a circuit and feel like it does not have the functions that I hoped for! I’ve heard awesome things about the Silhouette!!
I’m glad you’ve heard good things about the Silhouette, I really can’t say enough about it! It’s really great.
Would love to win one for my mom in law
How generous of you…it would be an amazing gift!
Thanks for the very helpful list, friend! Lots to consider in the next week before the sale…. :)
You’re welcome! If you need any help narrowing down a list let me know ;-)
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!
I am already using a Brother ScanNCut but I am really interested in a Mint
The Mint is such a fun little machine…I love being able to crank out custom stamps whenever I have an idea for one!
I’m not picky and just want large enough that I can make vinyls for shirts and home decor signs with ?
Oh you could do all that and so much more!! ;-)
I’d love the GLASS ETCHING STARTER KIT.
Oooh, good choice. Glass etching can be a little intimidating but it is so darn neat!
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!
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
You’re welcome!! Good luck Alexandra!
Would love to have the Cameo 3 – currently working with the original.
I just upgraded to the Cameo 3 this summer and it is SO nice…I love all the features they added. Good luck Debi!
I love my Cameo and hoping to someday say the same about my Curio! Still not tried the mint but would love to!
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!
I would love a Cameo 3!! Currently have the original Cricut but want to do sooooo much more! <3 Thanks for the giveaway!!
You’re welcome! Good luck Megan!
First I’m so excited that this is open to Canada WOOHOO!
I would love to add a curio to my craft room :-)
Yay!! :-) The Curio would be a great addition!
Would love to wi the new cameo 3
Good luck Chantel!!
Oooh! The possibilities of all the crafts you can do yourself or with kids!
Yes! Though I keep it mostly to myself and don’t “share” with the kids very often, haha. ;-)
The Foils look amazing
They really do! I haven’t tried the embossable foil yet but I really want to, it looks so neat.
I have ALWAYS wanted a silhouette. Oh, the things I could do :)
Yes, all the things!! Good luck Stacie :-)
Would love to win the Cameo 3! There are so many amazing crafts that you could use this for ??
Yes there certainly are! Good luck Sarah!
I’ve been debating getting the Mint since April. Fingers crossed for an awesome Black Friday sale!!!
Ooo you’ll be glad you waited, there are some good deals coming!!
I would love the Roll Feeder
The roll feeder is really handy to have!
Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. Does the Silhouette Transfer Tape work on sticker paper?
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.
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!
I have a cameo 3 now but would love a 2nd and a curio!!
The Curio is really neat!
Awesome gift list!
Ì’d like to get the
Mint machine to make
my own stamps.
Carla from Utah
Thanks Carla! The Mint machine is so fun, you’d love it!

I would love to win one of these! Thanks!
You’re welcome Jacqui – good luck!
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!
What a great giveaway!
Thanks for a chance to win.
You’re welcome, Dorothy, good luck!
I Like the HEAT TRANSFER STARTER KIT.
That’s a great way to get started playing with heat transfer material!

I would love to have a Cameo. What a fabulous giveaway! Thanks!
You’re welcome, Katie! Good luck!
I’d love a deep cut blade to elevate my projects and expand what I can create!

There are many things on this wish list that I would like, but mostly I would love a Cameo 3!
Yes the Cameo 3 is the creme de la creme for sure! ;-)
Silhouette Cameo 3 is in my wish list :) would live the wireless option and the auto blade detection~

Great idea! The deep cut blade is really neat.
I didn’t even know that had a pen holder that can hold your own pens! That’s going on my list!
Yes! I love using it with gel pens and fine tip sharpies.
Wahoo is right!! :-)
i have the SD i would love an upgrade to silhouette 3…bigger mat
Yes, the larger mat and all the upgraded features are so great!
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!
So many things I’d like to get & try. Like the minc or tattoos. ?
The tattoo paper is SO neat! I am excited to try the metallic tattoo paper too.
I would love a Silhouette with a bigger mat!
The extra cutting space is definitely nice to have!
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.
I do that too! And I’ve been thinking about Business edition as well.
Ohhh, love giveaways for amazing stuff!! Thanks for the opportunity!! :)

How I would love a Silhouette.
I would love to give one to you! Good luck!
Silhouette Cameo 3 would be lovely to get this christmas
I’d love to give one to you, Carol! Good luck!
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.
Fabric appliques are so neat…I’ve done it a few times but it’s something I’d like to do more often.
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!
Versatile is right – I am continually amazed by the projects I see people make with their Cameos!
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!
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!
You’re very welcome, Caitlin – good luck!
I am brand new at using my silhouette cameo so I would just love a variety of vinyls and papers to work with. :)
Those are great crafting “staples” for your Silhouette!
I LOVE my Silhouette! My daughter also uses mine, and I’d love for her have her own. What a great giveaway!
Oh that would be really great! Mother-daughter craft days ;-)
I need some heat transfer to make some fun t-shirts for my kiddos. I love Silhouette!!
Whipping up shirts for my kids is one of my favorite things to do with my Silhouette, too!
Wishlist- silhouette cameo or the silhouette curio. This is such an awesome giveaway! Thank you!!
Both are really great machines! Good luck Anna!
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.
How fun would it be to have mother-daughter Silhouette craft days? Good luck, Cindy!
There’s so many options. So much to try and experiment with. Thanks for the giveaway!
You’re right, there are tons of options! You’re very welcome, good luck Michelle!
would love to upgrade!
Good luck, Sharon!
Love the wood vinyl and would LOVE to win and upgrade
The wood vinyl is so neat, and super easy to work with…even easier than regular vinyl, I think!
A Portrait to take to crops is on my wishlist. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
You’re welcome Kathyanna, good luck!
I’d love the Cameo 3 (I’ve got the C2). Oh, and I’ve been wanting to try the cork media. And the roll feeder would be fab. And… Oh, just send it ALL to me! (I promise I’ll share)
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.
I would love a mint! I’ve been thinking about it for a while now….
The Mint is so fun! There’s a killer Mint bundle coming for the Black Friday sale… ;-)
I’m SO excited about this sale, signed up for the email. Perfect timing since I just asked for one for Christmas ;)
Perfect!! The sale is going to be seriously amazing, I can’t wait to spill the beans about all the details :-)
I’ve had a cameo on my wishlist forever but am finally ready and would love the cameo 3!!
Good luck, Kate!
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!
An upgrade would definitely be nice! Good luck, Jacki!
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!
I would love the Cameo 3 Myself. I had a cameo years ago and miss her!!!
Such an amazing machine! Good luck, Linda!
Thank you for the list of what is needed! Looking forward to following your blog
You’re so welcome Tamie – thank YOU! :-)
I’m just entering the world of crafting and I’m really excited for this giveaway! Thanks for sharing your talents!
This is really the be-all end-all crafting tool…you can do SO much with it! Fingers crossed for you!
I think I might want the Mint next. Thank you.
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 ;-)
I think that it would be wonderful to get a Mint!
They are such fun little machines! There’s an amazing Mint bundle coming for Black Friday, too! ;-)
Dreaming of a Silhouette Cameo 3!
So many crafty possibilities to dream about with the Cameo! :-)
Looking to upgrade from my old small cricket. Maybe a Silhouette is what I really need?
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!
Would love to have a silhouette. Thanks for the giveaway!
Fingers crossed for you, Karen!

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
That’s a great list! I hope Santa hears you ;-) Good luck, Lizelle!
The new silhouette is absolutely at the top of my wish list this year!!
It is SO great, I’ve only had mine for a few months but I looooove it!!
Would love to have the Cameo 3. Love the duel feature of pen and blade.
I love the dual cartridge, too!
What a great giveaway AND I am stoked to have found you! Love it!!!
I’m so glad you’re here, Siobhan! :-) Good luck!
I don’t have a sihouette, but have heard they are amazing. So I would love to get one.
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!
This is such a comprehensive list! Thank you so much for the breakdown!
You’re very welcome, Theresa! :-)
I have always wanted a roll feeder! Seems like it would make my life a bit easier sometimes!
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.
The Silhouette is definitely on my Xmas list. I would love to win one!
Good luck, Sue!
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!!
I have been wanting a silhouette for a while now. This list so amazing and is iging to help me out. Thank you!
I’ve been so wanting to try the silhouette forever; what I am using has always been a hassle for me.
You’ll LOVE Silhouette! It’s an amazing machine!
I have the first silhouette. Would love a new one.
Sounds like it’s time for an upgrade! ;-)
What a wonderful opportunity! Good luck to everyone who enters!
Good luck to you!
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
It is definitely a beauty of a machine! And duly noted about the email address ;-)
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!
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!
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!
I don’t have a Silhouette so I’d love to win one.
Good luck, Kim!
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 LOVE my cameo and would love the upgrade!
An upgrade would be so great! Good luck, Sheila!
I do not have a Silhouette and it would be so cool to win one! I can think of so many projects and gifts to make!
The list of project and gift possibilities is truly endless! Good luck, Tarah!
I love my cameo 3. I would love to upgrade to designer edition and try cutting for fabric with it
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 ;-)
I would love a silhouette! The possibilities are endless. Thanks for the giveaway. Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving to you too Vicki!!

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!
Love the list, it’s comprehensive. Thanks for the breakdown!
