Curbly Giveaway: Win a Silhouette SD Digital Cutting Machine (A $300 Value)

Curbly Giveaway: Win a Silhouette SD Digital Cutting Machine (A $300 Value)

Anyone interested in art, design, or crafts has likely developed their scissors skills into a science. You know exactly where to start a cut, how to keep it straight, when to bring it down to nail that curve...

And still, it's never quite perfect. There's those little jaggedy edges from where the cut stop and started again, curves that become a series of straight lines rather than a fluid motion, and then that cursed guideline that will never completely erase. Sometimes, that's the look you're going for - handmade, crafty, perhaps even a bit juvenile.

But sometimes, it's not. This is where the Silhouette SD comes in. It's a digital craft cutting machine that allows you to customize and design a variety of different products; be it from home decor, or custom made fabrics and apparel, to paper crafting.  Some of the machine’s features include:

•  No need for cartridges
•  Any font found on your computer can be cut (right out of the box)
•  Ability to create your own shapes either from clipart or with drawing tools
•  Ability to select shapes/images from an online store (somewhat similar to i-Tunes) and purchase one-by-one for as little as $0.99 per image
•  Will cut as long as you would like at one time
•  A new heat transfer line for apparel and home fabrics
•  Print and cut functionality-ability to print whatever you want to a computer and then place the print job in the machine and cut around it

I love that machine, but have been unable to find one.
Do you have a list of retail locations?


Kate on Nov 30, 2010:

So much fun! If I had one of these, you can pretty much bet that everything in my apartment would be labeled. How cute would my baking cabinet be with little "cocoa" and "whole wheat flour" silhouettes on the containers?


Keeping my fingers crossed!

Ok. So I'm not the only one. I came back to see the results, but no winner is listed. Umm... ok. I supposed if Ed McMahon isn't at my door holding the Silhouette its not me right?

Luisa :) on Nov 23, 2010:

i have 6 sisters, we all get together and make crafts once a month just to get away from our kids, husband's and everything that reminds us of any kind of work! but it takes forever for us to cut things up!  i would share this w/my sisters and we'd be able to actually finish at least ONE craft by the end of the night! lol... that is my answer: i would share this w/my sisters and my 8yr old daughter who is into crafting and hold "girls night in" craft nights at least once a week! yaaaay!!! *crossing my fingers n toes*!!! :)


Genevieve on Nov 23, 2010:

This sounds awesome.  


I have a ton of collage projects that are just lacking in cutouts, and I have been wanting to make vinyl wall decal picture frames for my new apartment.  This machine would be perfect for that.


Jill on Nov 23, 2010:

OH, and I'd make vinyl wall art (on CANVAS!! Boo. Yeah.) as well as quiet books for the kids.
