Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!

I know everyone is in frenzied shopping mode today, so I thought I would share a couple of giveaways!  First, I am offering up the new Silhouette cutter – The Portrait, which is a smaller (and less expensive) version of the CAMEO.


You can make all sorts of beautiful things with it.  Here are some ideas they have posted on their website


I love those paper ornaments!


It even cuts fabric…
