Silhouette Portrait Cutting Machine Giveaway

I’m giving away the new Portrait!

We creative types love our cutting machines.  Silhouette America, the company behind the Silhouette SD and the Silhouette Cameo have added another little darling to their family. The Silhouette Portrait™!  One lucky TCB reader will win this baby!

Every creative type deserves a cutting machine. Click continue reading to find out how to enter.

The Silhouette Portrait™ is smaller, more portable. Perfect for those smaller quick jobs. 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.


New Limited Edition Advent Calendars are available now Use discount code TCB.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Happy Holidays!

    I think the size and ease of use of this machine is incredible–I want one! Would be fabulous to win it. I have so many vinyl projects floating in my head–would be great to clear some room in there by doing some of them, lol! Thanks for the chance.

  9. says

    I would do a years worth of back flips, cartwheels AND handsprings for a year all the while singing the praises to the Silhouette Portrait Company and you! I am not able to work so this could actually help me greatly in trying to get a business started! What an awesome product! Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter for this!

  10. Lisa Marie says

    Wow, think of the things I could create with that! I was so excited I forgot about the cart wells. 4 cartwheels across the living room, then I’d hit the wall! Lol

  11. Joy says

    OK…I’m ready to win! I”ve been wanting a Silhouette for so long to help me with signs and projects for my daughter’s school. Thank you. :-)

  12. jenni says

    i used to be a cheerleader and could cartwheel my way across the gym floor. maybe i’d do that many and finish with a rousing round-off. at least in my mind i’d do that….not sure the old body would allow it any longer. but could i do it mentally? at the very least you’ll probably hear me squeal all the way from where i am to where you are. thanks for the chance to win one of these incredible machines! happy thanksgiving!

  13. Nancy wiltshire says

    I could have my granddaughters do the cartwheels. I would just play with this fabulous machine! Pick me! Pick me! Pretty please!

  14. Doris Clark says

    I would do as many as possible until I received the Silhouette and then I would cut out figures doing cartwheels!!

    Keep smilin!

  15. says

    I could probably do 25 before getting too dizzy–BUT, I could do HIGHKICKS! Or maybe I could do a cartwheel and then a highkick?
    I could totally use this to do so many crafty projects–the vinyl really excites me!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  16. M. Jones says

    My daughter who is 10 loves to craft and her and i could make some good memories crafting together

  17. says

    I cant do them but I would certainly try! I can guarantee you a cartwheel would make me pee my pants! But, hey, winning a silhouette would probably make me pee my pants too! :)

    I would do 50 cartwheels if I won!! I have been wanting one of these for a while, but can’t rationalize spending the money. :)

  24. jengd says

    Probably none since I’ve never been able to do a cartwheel. I could fall on my head quite nicely if that would do the trick though. :)

  25. Karen H. says

    Thank you for this opportunity!

  26. Catherine says

    I think four is my limit before motion sickness kicks in, but I’d be doing cartwheels in my head for weeks. ;)

    Many thanks, Cindi

  30. Deb S says

    I was never good at cartwheels–but I’d sure give it a try if I won. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Thansk for the give away. I’d make a great attempt at cartwheels but I’d most likely land on my butt!

  32. Dianna says

    Do they have to be real cartwheels or does my attempts count? Would give it all I got for a chance to win one of these lovely things. Sugarplums in my head and all that.

  33. Kelly B says

    Cartwheels! Hundreds and hundreds of cartwheels for this gem!! (until I actually tried – then I might squeak out 1 half cartwheel before breaking my neck – hands to the ground I can do. Its the feet over the head that will kill me)

  34. Liane R says

    Mentally, I would do a million cartwheels! I reality, I can probably only physically do a few at a time! I’d LOVE to win! Thanks for the chance!

  35. Crystal says

    If I could do cartwheels, I would do them down the street if I won, but would you settle for happy dance with lots of whoops & hollars??

  36. Deana M. says

    It wouldn’t be pretty….but I would do 1….rest… 1…….do 1……etc…etc…

  37. Amber says

    I would use this for sooo many things, Christmas gift tags first! I also want to get the cake accessory kit! Thanks

  38. Darcie says

    Maybe not *real* cartwheels, but my heart would flip and my brain would start in on all the things I’ve been waiting to do with one!

  39. says

    I would probably suffer major head trauma if I tried to do cartwheels. I could arrange for a gymnast to do some/several/many? My daughter’s best friend is a gymnast :) What an awesome giveaway! Thanks!

  40. says

    Oooh, if only! What an awesome giveaway! I would etch my Pyrex sets right away and create some vinyl decor for my new niece or nephews nursery. :-) Thanks for sharing!! Kerri —

  41. Sylvia Graham says

    Thanks for a chance to win. We have a scrapbooking crop to raise money for Susan G. Koman. I would love to win this to give away at our crop.

  42. Dawn Cherico says

    I can hardly do cartwheels anymore, but if I won this I think I might be able to swing it. What a great holiday gift this would be.

  43. Milagros Gagliano says

    I would hurt myself if I did cartwheels. But If I did WIN I would be doing a bunch of them in my head. LOL!

  44. Deborah D. says

    My sister would be the one doing cartwheels because I would give this to her! I already own the Cameo.

  45. Chelsea says

    Hmm, that depends where I am when I find out. If there is space, I will do 22. If I am in my basement at my computer, just one or two, but then I will do a happy dance.

  46. Jenna T says

    I’m not much of a cartwheeler, but I would skip down the street if I won. :-) Thanks for the opportunity!

  47. says

    I would say that I’d do a whole bunch. But the truth is, cartwheels make me dizzy. I would however squeal so loudly with delight that the sheriff K-9 3 blocks down the street would hear me. :)

  48. MaryB says

    I kinda think I am not adept enough to do cartwheels but I would try my best to do a jillion of them! Thanks for offering the chance to win this amazing item.

  49. Tammi Schneiderman says

    I would attempt a cartwheel and probably roll to the side flailing, then I would recover with some SWEET forwards rolls.

  50. Stacey Rothrock Steinfeld says

    I would get my 5 year olds to teach me how to do a cartwheel if I won and then I would do a BAZILLION of them!

  51. Jamie Larsen says

    If I won I wouldn’t do any cart wheels.. i’ve never been able to lol.. i may attempt one and then i’d probably be to injured to use the silhouette for a few days LOL. thanks for the chance to win!

  52. SusanMcL says

    Truth is, I can’t do any cartwheels, but if I won, I would be doing zillions! Thx for the chance!

    I have titanium rods in my back but I would certainly try..I used to be able to!!
    This would be so great to use with my daughter by love!!

  54. Emily says

    Seeing as I’m pregnant, I probably wouldn’t do any cartwheels, but I would definitely jump around a lot. And might even pee a little…

  55. Jessica Wohld says

    Not only would I be doing cartwheels if I won, I’d teach all three of my kiddos how to do cartwheels so they could join me!

  56. Fonda says

    Pick me, Pick me!!!! Hmmmm……the first thing I would make?? EVERYTHING!!! I am always printing letters or words off my printer then comes the tedious work of cutting it to make a ‘stencil’ for all my wood crafts!!! Next vinyl stencils for my glass etching!!!! This has been on my wishlist from the first moment I heard of the Silhouette machines!!

    Thanks for the chance to win this awesome machine!!!

  57. Jessica Christensen says

    I want to win so that I can make decorations for my little man’s playroom and make super cute cards to send to people!

    Oh my I don’t remember the last time I did cartwheels! I’d totally try to do as many as I could (at least one right!) if I won such a fun giveaway. :) Thank you!

  59. Janelle says

    I would complete one actual cartwheel, but another twenty, perfect 10 cartwheels, in my imagination!

  60. Louise in NE OK says

    I don’t do cartwheels anymore due to my age! ha… Seriously. Last time I tried it it almost killed me!

  61. Alexandra says

    I would do at least 7 cartwheels!! hehe I would be so thrilled to get one before Christmas so I could make tons of fun stuff for presents!

  62. says

    I used to be able to do a perfect cartwheel…I’d probably make myself sick if I tried now! I would try cartwheels again if I were to win this Silhouette!!

  63. Erin W. says

    I would do my first EVER real cartwheel!!! and then follow it with about 20 more!!! I am so excited about this little machine!!!

  64. says

    I would do as many cartwheels as I could before making myself dizzy. So probably guessing 1 :0) But you would be able to hear me whooping and hollering all the way from Ohio :0)

  65. Andrea D. says

    I think I would do as many cartwheels I can do without falling over. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  66. Skittle says

    If I could do a cartwheel, I would do at least 100! Alas, I will have to settle for jumping & squealing. :)

  67. Karen says

  68. Erin Kaven says

    Cartwheel…oh I wish I could. I would love to mentally do a cartwheel over winning a Sillouette. Sooooo want one.

    • Erin Kaven says

      sorry, the system didn’t seem to take the first post. The rafflecopter is not working for me. Not coming up.

  69. Jamie Ryan says

    What a great giveaway! I’d love to say I’d do 37 cartwheels if I won, however, I’d probably break something while doing the first one and give up.

  70. LinhC says

    I’d do 100 cartwheels…well, I’d want to because I’d be so happy, but I probably can do only one or two. :)

  71. Lauren :) says

    My heart would do a million cartwheels if I won! My physical therapist, on the other hand, would not approve of me actually doing one. :)

  72. Lisa Kubin says

    It has been about a hundred years since I have done a cartwheel but I would certainly try until I broke something!
    Lisa K.

  73. Kristy Skoy says

    I would try to do as many as I could but they would look really funny! I would land on my head and fall to the ground laughing with all my neighbors watching! But I would attempt it, Just for you!

  74. Kathy Moody says

    Since I’m too old for cartwheels lol I would do my little happy dance!!! Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway!!!

  75. says

    Hi Kim & Maybelline!
    I would love to use this for dog craft making, my pooch is Casey, and I love doing pet lovers gifts. I ALSO really really want to try out the fabric cutting! Great giveaway, thank you for doing it!
    Jenn & Casey

  76. carrie cantu says

    Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway! I’d do as many cartwheels as I possibly could with falling on my face…maybe 10?!

  77. Jill Frankenfield says

    Kim, thank you so much for this special opportunity! After begging the hubby for well over a year for a Silhouette Cameo, I promise to cartwheel all the wall from Pittsburgh, PA to the Pacific Northwest, while crafting with my new Cameo, if I am the proud owner! Lots love and thanks, again! :))

  78. marla judy says

    I would do ten cartwheels if I won. That is if I could do cartwheels – never have been able to.

  79. Rebecca S. says

    I’m not even sure I could do 1 cartwheel, but I’d sure give it my best effort! Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. Karen says

    I couldn’t do a cartwheel if my life depended on it!! But, I’d try my hardest to do at least 1!!!

  81. Melanie says

    I would attempt to do one, and that would have everyone around in such laughter that no more would be necessary! :) Thanks for the opportunity to win! :)

  82. Hilary Kent says

    I would do at least 4 without stopping but then I’d probably run into a wall or get dizzy but I would jump up and down at least 50 times.

  83. Jeanne J says

    I would do cartwheels until I threw up if I won the Silhouette Portrait!! Thankful for the giveaway!

  84. says

    Is it wrong to lust after this machine? Can it be???? Never! (But I so do!) And I’d be too busy hyperventilating to do ANY cartwheels!

  85. Amanda Estroff says

    In my mind, I would do a cartwheel everyday knowing that I had one to call my own. And every time I used the machine I would do at least ten. Again, in my mind. I leave on the top floor apartment. My neighbors below might have an issue with real ones :) Thanks for chance!

  86. SweetJeanette says

    * IF * I could do cartwheels, believe me, I would for a silhouette! Can it be in my heart, or head? The intention will be there! LOL Thanks for the chance to win.

  87. kathy hanson says

    Sadly, I can barely do 1 cartwheel. BUT, I’d tell you more cause I really want one of these!! :-)

  88. Angel says

    Hey Kim! Thanks for the amazing contest! I have wanted one of these babies for a while! Have a Blssed Thanksgiving!

  89. Lindsey says

    I have heard it is absolutely nothing like riding a bicycle after years of not doing it, but just for this, I would try my hardest to do a cartwheel!

  90. Laura/Readerwoman says

    I can’t do cartwheels, not me Sam, I cannot do them, Sam I am!
    I cannot do them in a house, I cannot do them with a mouse,
    I cannot do them here, nor there – I cannot do them anywhere!
    BUT I will yell and scream, I will, I can run up on the hill,
    I will laugh and I will cry, and I will pump my fist up in the sky…
    For tho’ I can’t do cartwheels, Sam I am, I will be happy as a clam!

  91. Carolanne says

    I would love to win! And if I could DO cartwheels, I do them until I couldn’t cartwheel anymore! :)

  92. Stacey says

    I would do exactly 0 if I won, because I am abyssmal at cartwheeling and always have been. BUT I would do a butt-wiggle-happy-dance (that I learned from my dog) and might even cry. Because that’s how I roll.

  93. Krista says

    I tried a cartwheel a couple months ago to teach my son…. I swear I pulled every muscle I own!! haha — I’ll have him cartwheel for me if I win! :)

  94. tina says

    Well, In my mind I would do a 100…Sure hope that counts because this body hasn’t done a cartwheel in 20yrs.. lol.. Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  95. Katie says

    I can’t remember the last time I did a cartwheel…but I think I could do at least 10. Thanks for the opportunity!

  96. patti says

    Unfortunately, I was never able to do cartwheels and I doubt anything has changed! But! I WOULD make a sign with my new Silhouette of someone ELSE doing cartwheels!!!

  97. Susana says

    I would try one, and if I didn’t hurt myself I would do another one :) but I would probably stop after that!

  98. Dalyne says

    I would attempt to do one cartwheel and probably fall on my face if I won the new Portrait Silhouette. Cartwheels are hard at my age but I’d give it a whirl! Happy Thanksgiving.

  99. Melody says

    I might fall on my backside and may possibly injure myself but I would shoot for a hundred. My head is spinning already! Thanks for the opportunity to win a Silhouette!

  100. Mindy Gardzinski says

    Dear Silhouette Santa,

    Please send momma a new Silhouette Elf…she needs it so much to craft her semi homemade Christmas. She will leave you extra milk and cookies

  101. Delaney says

    I may sprain my inner thigh doing that but I would sure be excited! I would use it to help make some cute parts for my sons quiet book!

  102. Jocelyn Tucker says

    I’ve never been able to do cartwheels – but if I could I would be doing them all day long! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  103. Kelly Daily says

    Good evening, I would only do one cartwheel and here is why….. I’ve never ever done one so doing one would be a miracle. I would be so honored to win this and it would find its way into a loving home.

  104. says

    Not sure I can even do cartwheels anymore but I sure would try and maybe a few back flips too- been ages since that one also!

  105. Stephanie Scott says

    Well I haven’t done cartwheels in a LONG time but I would attempt hundreds if I win!! If I can’t do that many my mind will do them for me:) Thanks for the chance to win!

  106. Christy says

    Hi Kim….Gosh this would be a dream!! Don’t judge me on how perfect my cartwheels would be though (because I’ve never been able to do one with my 5’9″ height) but I’m sure if I won I would be completely overtaken with excitement and possibly to 2 “semi” cartwheels and the best HAPPY-HAPPY-JOY-JOY dance ever! I’d e-mail you LOTS of pictures with the fun things I would make too….This would open up a whole new world of endless possibilities for me! I would be thrilled to try my designs on fabric and make pillows, pouches, gift tags and labels for my jams for gifts this holiday season! That would make my Christmas gift giving fun and simple for sure! Thanks so much for offering this fun new tool! I LOVE your blog and pins on Pinterest!!!

  107. Kate says

    I’d like to say I’d do 10 cartwheels. Or rather, I’d try to do at least 10, but only one or two will look like real cartwheels!

  108. Barbara says

    I don’t remember the last time I tried, but I bet I could attempt at least 3 cartwheels before my preggo self disagreed :)

  109. kristin says

    I would L.O.V.E to win this giveaway…how exciting! A million and one projects await me….all made better with the Silhouette!!

  110. Susan says

    I used to be able to do one after another after another… If I will the Silhouette I’ll do at least 1 cartwheel!

  111. Debb Lou says

    I would so love to win this… I see all of the creative things that one is capable of and just wish and wish that extra money would fall out of the sky; but, so far I haven’t been that lucky… but, I am keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks

  112. June says

    Oh I would very much love to win one of these!! I would do at least 5 cartwheels if I could! lol Thank you for such a great offer!!

  113. Gretchen says

    Love this product!! In my head, I think I could do 4 or 5…in reality, 1.5 would be pushing it :)

  114. says

    IF I won, I bet I could get out 12 cartwheels before collapsing. If you’re a gymnast you may not consider them cartwheels, but my 5 year old twins would!

  115. Alyscia Needham says

    Considering I’m somewhat coordinatedly-challenged and live in a small apartment you may get half a cartwheel out of me…But you would get a lot of embarassing excited dance moves!

  116. says

    I would do 100 cartwheels if I won! This is what I asked my hubby for for Xmas but we’re moving and money is really tight right now. It would be so amazing to win!

  117. Sylvia says

    Cartwheels? Now that would be a tragedy. Would love this machine. I want to make some adorable baby gifts for the new twin boys in our family.

  118. Margie Young says

    I would cartwheel till I dropped down dizzy, which would probably be about 3 cartwheels ! LOL ! But I sure would shout it out and whoop and be all excited for a very long time !!

  119. says

    Cartwheel? I’d do a super double somersault & an extra super duper Flip that I’d get a request to become a trainer of the US Gymnastics team.. yeah that would so be me. :)

  120. says

    Cartwheels? Oy, I didn’t realize this was a physical challenge! But I’d definitely ATTEMPT them, and that should count for something, right? ;)

  121. Deb K says

    Love your blog. I guess if I won, I would first have to see if i can still do cartwheels… Been a long time! But, like anything else, we have to give it a try and do our very best!!!

  122. Mignonne Ammerlaan says

    I’am sorry I can’t do cartwheels never could never will, not that I didn’t try.
    Wauw I would love to have this, last saturday we made carts it took forever to make them and finish them.

  123. Kathy M. says

    If I did a cartwheel, we’d all be in trouble!! But I can jump up and down and squeal with delight. Would that count?

  124. Mystye says

    I want one of these so bad, so I would try and do cartwheel after cartwheel until I collapsed! Notice I say try; as I have not completed let alone attempted a cartwheel since I was a child :)

  125. Linda Bumgardner says

    I would love to win this! I already have lots of Christmas projects in mind and this Silhouette Portrait would come in so handy! Great Giveaway!

  126. Tiffany Regis says

    I would attempt at least one cartwheel before I fall on my butt! And then I would use my new Sihlouette machine!

  127. Barbara says

    I would like to do 50 Cartwheels but I bet I could only do 10! I love the idea of a silhouette that I can take to crops without taking up another workstation!

  128. Jenn Postma says

    I would do cartwheels until I fell down and hurt myself! (Since I’m not that coordinated it’d probably only be 2 :))

  129. Sarah says

    I would totally do 10 cartwheels- probably all i could manage ;) This would be such a neat thing to win as I have the PERFECT person to collaborate with for lots of ideas with this item :)

  130. Melissa says

    So glad I found your blog through TidyMom! Would love to win the Silhouette Portrait cutting machine. Thanks!

  131. says

    Hmmm..I’m not sure how many I can do before getting dizzy. It’s been awhile since my cheerleader days lol. Thanks for the chance to win!

  132. Kristen says

    I think I could do three cartwheels before I got dizzy and fell over, lol! Thanks for the chance to win!

  133. Emily Kephart says

    I would do 1 million cartwheels. (Gosh if I could do 1 it would be amazing) Thank you for the chance

  134. Shannon Owens says

    Well, I would attempt at least one cartwheel! If that went well, I’d probably keep going! LOL!

  135. says

    I am completely incapable of doing cartwheels, but my daughter would be happy to do them for me since one of the things that we want a Silhouette for is making embellishments for her clothes (especially the knees). I would simply LOVE to have one of these sweet machines! :)

  136. Tina G. says

    I would try to do quite a few cartwheels but think I’d be side lined by my son who would be
    more excited than me with this – if I won!

    I really hope I win so he can use the silhoutte (with parental super vision of course!) for his
    creative 8 yr old crafts. :-)

  137. Brenda aka centralnyscrapper says

    If I won I would attempt to do a dozen cartwheels, but since I’ve never been good at them I would probably just make a fool of myself. :-)

  138. Susan H. says

    I would be very excited to win. Can’t do cartwheels tho…got hardware in my ankle from a bad break last year. But would really really love it. Thanks.

  139. zalyndia powell says

    I am proud to say I can still do cartwheels, i’d do them until….. This would be so fun to have and share with my daughter.

  140. Pam says

    Oh wow, at my age, it could be dangerous, but you can bet if I won this awesome giveaway, I will do my best on a cartwheel.

  141. Debbie Eslinger says

    this would be a dream come true if i won thanks for this chance, love to use it for card making

  142. Denise Wilson says

    I’m sorry, I wouldn’t do any cartwheels… The main reason is I WOULD BREAK MY NECK!
    But I would definitely be very excited to win! Thank you for the chance to win!

  143. Sandra says

    I think I may get out 3 before I fell over, but I would jump for joy for at least a minute! Thanks for the giveaway!

  144. megan says

    As many as I could – even though I never really learned to do one correctly … I would certainly give it a try!

  145. says

    I’d like to think I would do at least 10, but being the over-achiever that I am, I’d probably try for 11! Great giveaway.


  146. Peggy Monroe says

    I would love to win this wonderful machine I would be so darn excited that I just might be able to pull off a cartwheel ;)

  147. Melissa grimes says

    I can barely walk without running into walls, chairs, tables ect. So cartwheels have. Never been appealing to me :) But I would love to win :-)

  148. says

    I would do cartwheels all the way from home to work and back with a couple of backflips for good measure … well that’s in my head. Realistically probably just a couple :) but i sure would dance for joy !

  149. sandy says

    Oh dear, I would try to do a lot but frankly I have never been able to do any but I would certainly do them in spirit:), around and around!!!

    Thank you!!!

  150. Laura Reynolds says

    How many cartwheels?? Hmmm, I can do about 5 before I pass out. But they would be really really good ones!

  151. Melanie says

    Actually did a cartwheel a couple of years ago to try and assist an 8th grader on the techniques of doing one the correct way.. i was 50 by the way and had not done one since the 70’s in gym class.. Needless to say i paid a steep price for my vintage knowledge on cartwheeling but at least brought smiles and giggles to 3 little girls that thought that was the funniest thing they had seen in a very long time..So i will bypass doing a cartwheel..but would love to be entered for the Silhouette Portrait cutting tool.. Thanks..

  152. Melissa Stuart says

    Really hoping for a Silhouette! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! :D I can’t wait to read the rest of your blog, too!

  153. katy krause says

    Ohh lala. I would try 10, but maybe get 1 catrwheel, sort of!! but itwould be fun to watch, maybe

  154. SharonDoesBaskets says

    Cartwheels??? Oh dear. I’m afraid I’d land myself in the hospital and/or cause an earthquake if I did even one. I would be ecstatic, but don’t see any cartwheels in my future. :S

  155. Aimee Lyman-Vingless says

    I can’t do a cartwheel at all but I’m pretty sure if I won I would figure it out!

  156. Trina R. says

    I don’t know how to do cartwheels but I sure would learn how to in order to do like 25! Perhaps my cheerleader of a God-daughter could teach me lol

  157. says

    Sorry, I wouldn’t do any cartwheels because I can’t do any! BUT I would jump up and down and squee and scream and everyone would be happy that they didn’t have to see me do tumbling lol

  158. twelve30 says

    Cartwheels?? Did she say cartwheels?? I haven’t done them in a long time – wait a minute – I’ve never done a cartwheel! But I sure would be jumping up & down if I won. Thanks for the giveaway.

  159. Angie says

    I would do one and then fall down. Three years of gymnastics as a kid and I never mastered that skill :)

  160. says

    I would do more cartwheels than my daughter who is in gymnastics. She would not know what was coming seeing me do more cartwheels than she can!

  161. Julia says

    I would definately try to do cartwheels…..I have no coordination and the only time my feet actually leave the ground in an over the head fashion is definately when I am trying to reach a little too far from the ladder in one of my diy projects!

  162. says

    I’m so excited to discover this tool. I am just getting back into sewing and this is going on the top of my “Dear Santa” list!

    I see amazing possibilities for projects I now want to do using this

  163. Vanessa B says

    ok,, Ive got MS and its been years since Ive even attmeped a cartwheel but I know I could do at least 3 :-) Thank You and Happy Holidays!!!

  164. Teresa Blue says

    Once did a cartwheel right into my brothers face! I gave it up! Might take it up again if I won! Thanks for the opportunity!

  165. Angela W. says

    Do they have to be real cartwheels? I think I may kill myself by attempting real cartwheels, but I could do some tumbling and jumping and probably even convince my niece and nephew to try a few cartwheels for me. I definitely would be super excited to win the Silhouette Portrait!

  166. says

    Great giveaway and great question, hahaha!! I would do 10 carwheels if i were to win the Silhouette. I’m pretty sure i would be sore afterwards but would enjoy it while i was doing it. Happy Holidays!

  167. N. Ziehl says

    I would have a hard time doing a cartwheel, but my crafty daughter could do LOTS. We would so enjoy using this machine together. It would be the first addition to our new craft room.

  168. Corrine Sawyer says

    I’m thinking I could do 2 cartwheels until I realized how old I am. Thanks for this opportunity!

  169. Jennifer U says

    Yay for this giveaway & yay for cartwheels! I just had my first baby, but I think I could manage a few if I won!! :)

  170. Katie DiBenedetto says

    Hello! If I won I would (attempt) to do a million cartwheels! I am quite clumsy so even successfully doing 1 would be an achievement haha thanks so much for the chance to win!

  171. Tamboliya says

    In spirit, I’d probably do a MILLION cartwheels if I won a Silhoueete, but in reality/physically, I’d probably do none b/c I’m no spring chicken any longer. LOL ;)

  172. Melodee says

    Well, I’d attempt to do at least one, but I’m not sure I could handle even that any more. :o) I’d try, though! Sounds like a very cool machine.

  173. Jusa says

    Hahaha. I was just watching a kid doing cartwheels the other day and I told my husband I used to know how to do them when I was a kid. He had a good laugh over that. Seriously — I would do a cartwheel if I won a Portrait, I’d be that giddy.

  174. Becky L says

    I need a silhouette to create some awesome stuff for my daughter”s wedding album…I’ve already cleared some space in my scrapbook corner.

  175. says

    I hope I win so I could make some really cool gifts for family and friends. I would make them ornaments and some wood signs. I hope it’ me.

  176. Jennifer says

    I would *love* one of these machines. I don’t have one yet, out of my price range but I love to craft and have been drooling over the other Silhouettes for months.

    • Jennifer says

      Oh and do mental cartwheels count? If so I’d do 100. Physical ones? I’d have to count myself out on that one, physical inability to do so (disabled).

  177. Jennifer says

    A kajillion! I love all the possibilities of this tool! This would help a young student on a part-time salary tremendously! Thanks for chance to dream about it, even if I don’t win!

  178. Dawn Y says

    If I won, I’d do 100 cartwheels in my mind! In reality, I don’t think my body would be able to do one.

  179. Benny Sequeira says

    I am thankful for the little joys (inspiration) i get for crafting through such good blogs and I need a silhouette to fulfill all my crafty dreams.

  180. Cara G says

    Well, if I won, I’d be so happy I’d WANT to do about 50, but I’m not sure I could manage even 1 anymore – LOL! Thanks for the chance to win!

  181. jennifer aikens says

    I am sooo glad there is so many giveaways of this machine. I am planning on getting one no matter what but I am hoping sooo much that I am able to get one for free. I just returnd my Cricut and am eyeballing this machine like crazy!

  182. Pamela Spradlin says

    Well, it wouldn’t be a pretty site but I would try to do at least one cartwheel…of course that would depend if I could still breathe after the excitement of winning!!!!

  183. KBaker says

    as for cartwheels… well… it ain’t pretty! { hahaha } thanks for an awesome giveaway. HAPPY THANKSGIVING

  184. Kelly says

    I would be tempted to keep doing cartwheels forever – but I think playing with my new Silhouette would be the one thing that could get me to stop! Lol

  185. Debbie Dyck says

    Good Morning Kim! What a GREAT Give-away !! I would love to receive this…if I won this I probably do at least 6 cartwheels….as in all the excitement of winning I would forget how old I am & how long it has been since I have done a cartwheel!!!!!!!! :))

  186. Laura Southerland says

    I would do cartwheels til I cwas so dizzy, I would fall over. Then, I would probably get up and do more!

  187. Ranelle says

    I would do as many as I could if I won! I can even throw in a 1-handed cartwheel, too! (that’s still a cartwheel, right?)

  188. Chris Baker Cox says

    I would try and do a thousand cartwheels…but because of the shape I’m in…I’d maybe make it through 1/2 of one! :)

  189. says

    Oh How I have fond memories of doing cartwheels as a kid across the green grass of our front yard. I was so happy went I went head over heals. NOW??? I would replay my childhood cartwheels over and over in my head for 101 times. BUT, For sure, I would blog about my new Silhouette that I won! That might possibly be better than cartwheels? :)

  190. says

    I think I’d do cartwheels off/on all day long, but how many in a row? I’m not very coordinated, so probably 5 before I fell on my face :) But I’d want to do millions! Thanks for this chance to win!

  191. renee says

    I would do 4. probably! hahaha… maybe 5. It would be the most exciting thing that’s happened to me in awhile!

  192. Jessica W says

    I would probably only do 5 cartwheels. But I would do the Woo Hoo dance which is our family’s way of celebrating exciting events

  193. Betsy H. says

    If I won, I’d do 3 cartwheels… but only because that’s the most I could manage in a row due to the size of my house ;-P (and seeing as I haven’t done a cartwheel in AGES, I’m pretty sure 3 in a row is QUITE the accomplishment!! hahaha!) **I’d want to do WAY more. Heck… if it helps my chances, I’d video the attempt and give it back if I win :-P**

  194. Alycia says

    I would realistically do about 10 cartwheels. I have been eyeing a cutting machine for a long time to make my various paper crafts, mostly my greeting cards. I love to send greeting cards because it makes me happy and it makes others happy. I’d do 10 cartwheels if I won and maybe 10 more each time I have the opportunity to use it :)

  195. Sarina says

    I honestly don’t know how many cartwheels I could complete, but I would be thrilled and doing cartwheels in my head.

  196. says

    I would do my very best to do one….and if I did, I would do another just because I am so happy I actually didnt fall down :) Fingers crossed

  197. Brooke U says

    Thanks so much for the chance to win! :) I would try to do a cartwheel, but most likely I would fall over! LOL!

  198. Mary M. says

    If I won I would cartwheel all over my yard! Probably a thousand cartwheels, until I couldn’t cartwheel anymore!

  199. says

    Would love to win this machine and would instantly put it to use with some Christmas projects that I have in mind. I have been a cricut user but would love to be converted. Thanks for the give-away opportunity and Happy Thanksgiving!

  200. Tess says

    I posted a comment earlier, but forgot to tell you how many cartwheels I’d do… as many as you want me to do! They won’t look great, but I’ll do them. haha!

  201. Caitlynne says

    I think six seems like the appropriate amount, I have been wanting one for months! But I would probably fall and get hurt during the first one…..

  202. Mindy R says

    I would want to do many cartwheels, but I tried the other day and was sore for days after. I might attempt 2 if I won though. :)

  203. kam says

    lol I’m afraid I’d do 0 cartwheels, with vertigo and a complete lack of coordination it’s just not in my repretoire. But my kids can do them! And I’m sure we’d have no shortage ;) Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  204. Crystal W says

    I think I could probably do about 5 cartwheels in a row – though my form would leave something to be desired after 3 of them! I would love to win!

  205. Cindy B says

    I could envision myself cartwheeling across the lawn, but it would happen only in my dreams :) I’d be gifting this to my sister, though, and she’d probably manage a couple due to complete shock!

  206. Kristine says

    Oh gosh, I would love to have a Portrait to create with. I really want to make some of the etched casserole dishes i see on Pinterest! :)

  207. Linda Carson says

    I would do 200 cartwheels… my mind!! Jumping up and down might be altogether a different story!!

  208. Anna Violette says

    I would do exactly 2 cartwheels and i might as well do them at THE HOSPITAL because yes im that uncoordinated! lol

  209. carly dunavant says

    I would do as many as I could until I couldnt stand up anymore. I would be so amazed and excited that I would probably yell from the roof top as well

  210. Patti says

    I love this! I haven’t done a cartwheel in years but I’d give it all I’ve got! My guess would be 2…LOL. TY for the giveaway!

  211. Lora McKee says

    My 6 year old is doing cartwheels. She would love for her Mom to win. It would mean Decorations for her room!

  212. kristin young says

    i would do ten and then fall over from dizziness lol and then cry because i would be so happy

  213. andie d says

    Probably half a cartwheel until I’d dislocate something, but I’d be super happy during my ambulance ride to the hospital!

  214. Amy says

    I can’t do cartwheels, but I would have my daughter do cartwheels (she can go on forever, it seems) and front handsprings, if I won.

  215. Belinda Clear says

    I wouldn’t be able to do a cart wheel if I was blessed enough to win ( I never learned how), but I bet my 4 year old son would do them for me because I’d finally be able to finish the decor he has been begging mommy to do for his Avengers bedroom!

  216. Kendra LL says

    No cartwheels (doctors orders) but I’d have my son do a bunch on my behalf. Thanks for the chance to win!

  217. Jen Johnson says

    I would do one…then get very dizzy. Then I would have my daughter the little gymnast do as many as she could…which would be A LOT!

  218. says

    I would do a bajillion cartwheels if I could! I would HTV the crap out of anything I could get my hands one…onesies, t-shirts, towels, and my husbands underwear…ok not the underwear but you get the picture.

  219. Susan Spiers says

    I’m a little too old for cartwheels, but if I could, probably just be one! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

  220. Annalisa C. says

    I have to admit I haven’t managed a cartwheel since I was rather young… BUT… I would try to do 13 (favorite number) just for you (although it will probably end up being more like 1/13 if even that!).

  221. says

    You truly have no idea how ecstatic this old gal would be! I’d do it all: cartwheels, back flips, maybe even a few dance moves thrown in for good measure…ha! I’m so excited about this chance to win and want to say thank you for the opportunity

  222. Shelley D. says

    I would do as many pathetic cartwheels that I could possibly do before I get dizzy and/or sick.

  223. Kelsey says

    I don’t know about kart wheels, but I would certainly be jumping for joy!! I would love to win a Silhouette Portrait!

  224. says

    In my mind I’d do about a thousand cartwheels if I won :) In reality with a bad back and knees probably none :) I did a ton of them when I was young. Probably too many (probably part of my knee problems lol). Thanks for the chance to win! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  225. nicole says

    my daughter wants me to teach her how to do a cartwheel so if I won, I would def kill 2 birds with 1 cartwheel…

    i’d probably break my hand, but hey its the effort that counts right? LOL

  226. says

    ha – I have a look at the silhouette since a few months. But I do not live in America, I live in Austria and I have not found a seller for it since then. So – I did not find the terms and conditions for your give away – but if it will be possible to enter the give away also for european people I’m in!

  227. Rebecca Sinclair says

    Thank you for this wonderful giveaway! That advent calendar is so adorable, and I’d sure love to win this to create all those amazing crafts!

  228. Megan Curtis says

    Making my wish list, checking it twice! And I’m making sure this makes the cut ;) Thanks for the giveaway!

  229. Isabel c says

    What a great giveaway! The possibilities are endless with the silhouette! I would love to make custom ornaments with it!

  230. Christina says

    I have been wanting to print some signs and would love to win one!!! So many ideas not so good with free hand lettering!

  231. Aimoku Higa says

    I have wanted a Silhouette for SO long and there are tons of projects I want to use it for! I’d make some vinyl stickers for the wall!

  232. Kaylee Nelson says

    I have been dreaming about having a Silhouette for awhile now! I would LOVE this giveaway!

  233. Mel says

    I would LOVE to win this!! Thank you so much for the chance. I had my daughter do the cartwheels for me! :)

  234. Carey Payne says

    I have been wanting a Silhouette for a few years now, but they are just a little over my budget. I would LOVE to win this giveaway. Thank you for the chance! :)

  235. grace says

    Would love to win this . .maybe santa would be kind enough to bring it just in time to put under my tree and then I can start to follow all those wonderful ideas at silhoutte blog. Thanks for the chance

  236. Colleen says

    I have never been able to do a cartwheel but I will give it a really good try to win this! Thanks for a chance to win

  237. Mary Lou says

    I would try one, then another, then another, then another…..I might just surprise myself. Thanks for the chance to win. Happy Thanksgiving.

  238. Amy says

    I would probably end of doing zero cartwheels but I’d manage to flop on the ground over and over attempting to do cartwheels because I’d be so excited!

  239. Erika Norton says

    Ummm if I’m be real… let’s say 10…. in the snow! If there’s snow… but either way I’ll be so excited!!!

  240. Vicki says

    I would complete five cartwheels if I won! The first thing I would create is a holiday appliqued quilt. I can’t wait to see this machine cut fabric!

  241. Malerie Torres says

    I’m actually pretty good at cartwheels and doing several in a row, so I think I could realistically do at least 10. But if it were physically possible I would do at least 3 zillion.

  242. Jim says

    It has been a long time since I have done a cartwheel. However, if I won I would have to give it another try.

  243. says

    If I was the lucky winner, the first thing I would make would be a thank you card for my husband. After I had a stroke earlier this year at only age 43, he has been more than amazing, and today I am thankful for him. Thanks very much for this giveaway.

  244. Chacoy says

    I am unsure how many I could do before getting dizzy and puking so I will shoot for 100!
    Thank you for the opportunity(:

  245. Laura says

    I would probably do about 100 cartwheels if I won! I have been lusting over the Silhouette’s for so long!

  246. Michele N says

    I would do 100 cartwheels in my mind. I am challenged when it comes to actually doing them physically, I’m a klutz. But I really want a Silhouette, so I could probably do 100 jumping jacks instead!
