    I love my silhouette! I have just spent all morning creating tempoary tattoo moustaches for the 'Stache Station at tonight's Cub Scout pack meeting! Awesome!

  2. Michelle - aka Belle October 19, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Right now I use digital things when crafting. I don't have a Cricut or Silhouette, but I would like a Silhouette some time in the future. I am a paper lover, so I revel in the fact that I get to use my craft knife and spend time amidst my stacks and stacks of wonderful paper.
    Have a fabulous day!

    Hmmmm… I love my Cricut and my sewing machine! I wish I could find more hours in the day to use them!

  4. Amy13 October 19, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    My Cricut is my partner in crime. I have been accused of spending countless hours with him (his name is Sanford) instead of making dinner, cleaning house, and shirking numerous other responsibilities. Thank goodness my husband tolerates this relationship! I love the versatility I have with it and the DS and MTC software AND that it is portable, since I don't scrap at home very much.

  5. KMS October 19, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    I love my Silhouette. It cuts shapes for card-making, titles for scrapbook pages and today it's cutting vinyl for my daughter's pumpkin decorations! So versatile!

  6. Jennifer Cowan October 19, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    I love my slice… but I am mainly an all paper crafter. I have done a couple of hybrid things… but nothing all digital.

    I have had my eye on your Halloween This & That… I think could handle it.

  7. Shalini October 19, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    i love ribbons… i am totally ribbon crazy… love using it in different forms and shapes…

  8. sandra October 19, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    I LUV, LUV, LUV my Silhouette. Not only do they have the most amazing designs, they're available 24/7.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  9. saerwin October 19, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    I use my Cricut and SCAL software together a lot. I love how easily I can get "professional-looking" results. And I really LOVE your This-and-That kit from Halloween — looking forward to the future ones!

  10. Lynne October 19, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    I love my Sihouette and I never imagined how easy it would be to cut your designs on it! It is great!! I love your Halloween This and That and I am sure the rest of the series will be awesome!!

  11. kipandmindy October 19, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    I love my silhouette. I am excited for your upcoming this and that kits. Love your stuff!!

  12. Chelle October 19, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    I use the silhouette and am finally taking a course on how to make the most of my machine. I am loving learning all that I can do with it.

  13. Cassie October 19, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    I love my Silhouette. I love the new software! My favorite thing is the designs, print & cut & sketch designs. I can always find the perfect design or just make my own! Not to mention that I can use your designs too!

  14. Kirsty October 19, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    I have the Silhouette. I can't say I use it a ton, being a bit of a lazy scrapper. But I have been using your titles a lot lately! Thanks!

  15. Amy October 19, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    I have a Klic-N-Kut that I love! It's not a very popular machine but it does so much! Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. Kimberly October 19, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    I use my cricut all the time. Right now I love that I can use it to cut vinyl for the walls in our new home. Thanks so much for the chance to win. Your kits are so cute!

  17. Kirsti Fleming October 19, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    Couldn't be without my Silhouette and am somewhat enjoying the Studio software; unfortunately I have the old-school machine and it isn't as user-friendly if you aren't using the SilhouetteSD. But as a Photoshop user, I am pleased to have more options in a direct-Silhouette software base.

  18. janel October 19, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    I don't have a Cricut or a Silhouette machine but I'd love to get one someday. Right now I do mainly hybrid scrapbooking as I'm learning more about the digital world. I love your This and That kit!

  19. Barbara October 19, 2010 at 3:33 pm

    Right now I am using my Silhouette; truly, I was inspired to dust it off after reading your tutorials, and I have ordered a painter's tray to fit your series. Thanks for the chance to win!

  20. Vicky October 19, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    I only recently bought a Silhouette and I absolutely love it. I was looking for a die-cutting machine and I chose the Silhouette because it has unlimited options (no cartridges!) and because it has superior cutting quality according to some reviews I read. Now I have trouble choosing WHAT to cut – so many options!

  21. Andrea October 19, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    I'm a Cricut girl and I also use SCAL. Love the Cricut. Would love the This n That kit too!

  22. Adriana October 19, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    I love my silhouette, and the new software for it is awesome. I love your designs!

  23. carilackner October 19, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    I LOVE my Silhouette. And I love all your designs. I use my Silhouette for scrapbooking, shirt designs, party decorations, wall decor, etc. Basically I use it for anything I can think of!

  24. Lara October 19, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    I love my Gazelle, because it cuts 12" wide. I use it to cut Silhouette shapes, titles for SB pages, vinyl for glass blogs, tiles and other home decor. I love that is wide, fast and versatile. I love your files and ideas! Keep up the good work!

  25. Judy October 19, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    Definitely a cricut crazed cropper!

  26. Barrette October 19, 2010 at 4:05 pm

    My silhouette machine. I never put it away :) Just finished making party supplies for my friends 40th birthday, no on to vinyl signs for my friends nursery.

  27. Debbie October 19, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    I love using my silhouette to craft. I love the versatility and I love that there aren't any cartridges to try to find a place to store. I love that you get to manipulate the shapes to use only part of a design and that they can be various sizes.

    LOVE IT.


  28. Heather October 19, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    I'm all about my Cricut! I love using it for cards, gifts, and my scrapbooks.

  29. Robyn October 19, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    That is super generous of you girl!!! :) I am addicted to my Silhouette – in a big way! :) I think I have to use it on every page or project! I love the size that my Cricut can cut so sometime I'll use it for that but not often. Love the designs on the Silhouette! Hugs!!

  30. FOXHOLLOWUT October 19, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Ok…So I have a love, hate relationship with my cricut. So,I call in my daughter and she can get it to work when it hates me. Then we get along just fine.

  31. jackiestamps4fun October 19, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Oh I do love my Silhouette! I need to get it out more…and winning this would help! Thanks for all of your inspiration – I love it all!

  32. my blogs October 19, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    I so love my Silhouette!!!!! I did use your Halloween this & that kit but in a different way. Instead of using the tray, which I did not have,I used an old 6 pain window I had redone years ago and could not figure out what to do with it. If you would like I could send you a picture, it turned out so cool.

  33. vegetablog October 19, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    (sorry if this is a second entry by mistake– Blogger gave me an error when I tried the first time)

    I have a Silhouette and I absolutely LOVE it. I mostly use it for cutting titles, so its capability to cut any true type font is practically a miracle to me, haha! No more hours of cutting intricate letters with a craft knife and little scissors. ;-) The Silhouette always produces professional quality cuts, and the design options are so elegant and easy to use.

  34. Eva October 19, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    I love my Silhouette! and I even love it more with your die cut shapes!!!

  35. Jolene October 19, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    I have a Cricut and SCAL software that I am just now learning how to use. So far so good and I love the Halloween This and That. So fun!

  36. Amy October 19, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    I love my cricut, but love the designs for the silhouette! It's a conundrum but the cricuts images are super cute too and I love that I can use the files you create with my scal. You rock!

  37. Rhadonda October 19, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    I have Cricut and Silhouette. My husband uses the Cricut more for decals and i use the Silhouette. I love the intricate cuts. My method of madness is a lot of staring at the screen. I cut shapes for my sunday school kids to put their verses on. I also cut freezer paper and made a stencil and painted a t-shirt. It was pretty fun and addicting. Maybe someday i will post a picture somewhere. I am beginning to dabble in digital and LOVE it. Thanks for the generosity.

  38. Jennifer October 19, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    I use a Cricut. If I win I'll have to learn how to use these things. I love what you do!

  39. Stephanie October 19, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    How generous of you! My method of madness is definitely my Silhouette and hand stitching. I love to use the two together to make layouts!

  40. Melissa October 19, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    I use a Cricut and really my favorite part is using the Gypsy with it – makes it so easy to lay out all the cuts and paper I need!

  41. severegirl October 19, 2010 at 6:07 pm

    I don't have a silhouette or cricut and am trying to decide which to invest in first. Any advice? Would love your kit and the chance to learn to do something new. That's what I absolutely love about blogs…lots of inspiration! Thanks so much!

  42. *Alison* October 19, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Right now I use a Cricut.. :) love it!! I just adore your site.. thanks for the chance to win!! Crossing fingers AND TOES :) hugs

  43. The Fritz Family Blog October 19, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    I just got a silhouette earlier this year and love it! I only wish I had more time to use it!

  44. teryl October 19, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    I got a Silhouette earlier this year and love it. I'm still learning something every time I use it.
    What I love most is the freedom to use just about every font and dingbat I have on my computer.
    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win.
    What a great giveaway!

  45. Jan October 19, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    I gotta be honest with ya….I have a cricut and a silhouette but…..I really don't know how to use them…ugh! I need a tutor…so, my favorite crafting method currently is good old fashioned hands on paper crafting and I look and dream about what I WANT to do!!! Love your stuff and I would love to win. Have a class Kerri and I will come. :0

  46. Dawn October 19, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    I love my big shot and Spellbinders…use them for almost every project I work on.
    What a great giveaway, thanks for a chance to win.

  47. jknapp00 October 19, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    I use a Gazelle electronic cutter, but I have never done a print and cut – would like to try it! I also use my sewing machine, the cuttlebug with embossing folders and nestabilities dies, and sometimes even a ruler and craft knife.

  48. Barbara October 19, 2010 at 7:17 pm

    I love my Silhouette because I keep discovering new things that it can do! When I first bought it I would only cut out shapes but now I am in love with the Print and Cut feature too! It's the machine that keeps on giving. ♥
    Thank you for so freely sharing your creativity and for this wonderful offer. :-)

  49. The Queen October 19, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    I am saving up for a Silhouette, until then it's me and my itty bitty manicure scissors. I print titles out in reverse and cut them out by hand. It's kinda therapeutic.

  50. Christi October 19, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    I'm a Silhouette girl and love it!

  51. Amanda Powell October 19, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    I love using textured cardstock, my silhouette, and my sewing machine! I try to keep things simple. =)
    amanda p.

  52. S October 19, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    I don't have any fancy machines, so I'm mostly a "paper & glue, w/ the occasional small trinket" scrapper. Maybe my "method of madness" is handwriting. I like to hand-write my journaling, and put journaling on almost every page, so the background stories aren't lost.
    Sherry Coleman ogreger(at)gmaildot)com

  53. lynnquiltsalot October 19, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    I just love your Halloween kit! But I don't have any fancy cutting machines, but love my sewing machine. I'm a simple scrapper, but I'm willing to learn new techniques.

  54. AndreafromNoVA October 19, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    I use the Cricut LOVE it!! Makes everything from school projects, things for sports teams, and just good ole scrapping and card making a breeze!!

    Andrea J

  55. Kenzie October 19, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    I love creating digitally! It takes me much less time which is great since I don't have much in the first place. I do enjoy my Silhouette too when I have the chance to actually create something for myself!

  56. Shelley October 19, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    I'm planning on buying a silhouette soon. I would love to win your this and that kits. Thanks so much for the chance!!

  57. Jan October 19, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    I love my Cricut and use it all the time. Especially like the cartridges with phrases.

  58. cheepincharge October 19, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    I'm a 'hands on' kinda girl right now for scrapbooking. I've got a Cricuit that I haven't had time to learn how to use, though hopefully I can get it out of the box and put it to work soon! Thanks for the chance to win!

  59. ~blessings October 19, 2010 at 11:34 pm

    My method of madness is sheer insanity!!! I tend to get into analysis paralysis because I pull out everything I could possibly fit into the theme I am working on and then go from there!! I don't have a cricut or silhouette, but the silhouette is definitely on my Christmas wish list! ;) I am just getting into digital scrapping, I am collecting digis but haven't printed or used any yet. I still have to get my craft room in order after a recent move. ;)

  60. Barbara October 19, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    I have a Cricut, had it for a while, but just now really starting to use it. Love your kit. It's why I got the MTC. Now I just need to find some time to play!

  61. Diane October 19, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    I'm loving my Silhouette. Hadn't used it for quite awhile but downloaded the new software and loving the upgrade. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  62. Darlene Melvin October 20, 2010 at 12:05 am

    i love my Silhouette .. and even more so with your designs. OMG – a year of your stuff would be AWESOME!!

  63. MissJohnson October 20, 2010 at 12:10 am

    I absoutely LOVE my Silhouette, but I also use my Slice when I have a quick little project. I love your projects!!!

  64. dianem October 20, 2010 at 12:30 am

    I love my Silhouette. Seeing the projects you create shows me how amazing this machine can be. Thank you for the opportunity.

  65. priscilla October 20, 2010 at 12:31 am

    love my cricut ! I use scal with it ..love your designs..of course I have graphically speaking ! love your use of words for scrapbooking ! thanks for the chance to win !

  66. Denise October 20, 2010 at 12:40 am

    I love my Silhouette! I'm trying to practice with designs I really love so that I get better at it!

  67. Denise October 20, 2010 at 12:46 am

    My Silhoutte has been the best investment! I love how it makes the tedious job of cutting so much easier. I have tried vinyl also, I was amazed how well that worked out. Someday I want to try heat transfer and tattoo paper.

  68. Dell October 20, 2010 at 12:49 am

    That would be my silhouette. Love it. :)

  69. Shawninaz October 20, 2010 at 12:58 am

    I'm truly excited about this giveaway, good luck everyone!
    I adore my Silhouette and would like to upgrade to the newest version. I've had mine for several years now and have used it for scrapbooking, cards, vinyl accents for home decor and many school projects. What I love most about it is not having to buy cartridges I just go online and I can always find what I need.

  70. Debbie D October 20, 2010 at 1:01 am

    I would have to say my Cricut. I just finished making 100 invitations and a banner for my niece's baby shower this month!

  71. susy October 20, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Well Miss Kerri, glad to hear that today you are feeling a little bit saucy :-)
    Of course I looove my silhouette, don't know how I ever did without it. My kids love it too, they never mind the few extra marks the teacher adds on for presentation, hehe.

  72. Heather October 20, 2010 at 1:03 am

    I'm a silhouette user all the way! I mostly use it to cut titles and shapes for my cards & layouts. However I also use it to cut vinyl every now and then. :)

  73. Disp6194 October 20, 2010 at 1:05 am

    I adore my Cricut. I use the images as is but sometimes I use them as masks when I'm inking. Love it!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  74. Susan October 20, 2010 at 1:23 am

    At the moment, I'm trying to figure out a method of madness. I already bought your Halloween kit, but I don't own any cutting system, so I'm going to try digital. I've never done it before, but I LOVE your kit so I'm going to try. Wish me luck! I so want the other kits, too, because they're just cool!!

  75. Melissa October 20, 2010 at 1:26 am

    I have a cricut but I like playing with digi too.
    At the moment I use the cricut mainly for titles and digi for journaling but I would really like to work out side my little box

  76. Karen October 20, 2010 at 1:42 am

    I would have to say that of all my wonderful tools, I use my Cuttlebug the most. I think I use it more than my Cricut. If I got better at the SCAL software, I might use my Cricut more. Sorry to hear the road is bumpy right now, I hope it gets better soon.

  77. Gina October 20, 2010 at 2:08 am

    I love my Silhouette and now that I am finally getting a hang of the new software it is awesome. I really love cutting your files, your the best!!!

  78. Lori Passey October 20, 2010 at 2:17 am

    I have a Silhouette and love it! Still getting used to using it and figuring out all the cool stuff to make with it. Love how easy it was to cut out the Halloween This & That! Can't wait for the next installment.

  79. lorena b. October 20, 2010 at 2:25 am

    I have to confess . . . I have a Silhouette, but I don't use it! Ok, tried it once or twice and I managed to mess things up. I don't know why I'm so intimidated! I know it's not rocket science. I just found my lost blades too so I am determined to make something awesome!

  80. Jules! October 20, 2010 at 2:28 am

    Kerri, i ♥ my Rev! I am going to be so sad when the gears finally give…and i also use my Sil….love it too!

  81. Jessica October 20, 2010 at 3:00 am

    I love my Silhouette and use it a lot for paper crafting.
    Right now I am into making iron ons out of fabric so I use the workhorse of a Cricut for those.
    For both I use Make The Cut…it's so easy to use!
    Oh, and i LOOOOVVVEEE the Silhouette library!

  82. Jools October 20, 2010 at 3:08 am

    Wow, A lot of people feel strongly about their silhouette. I love my cricut, but I also have a slice and I love that too. I have to add that the old fashioned die cuts are cool too. I think I need the vagabond from Tim Holtz. Thanks for the chance to win.

  83. Shell Bray October 20, 2010 at 3:28 am

    Right on!! i have and use the silhouette for everything and more. i'm totally diggin your art. i bought a tray and i would love to get started. i'm stoked on the idea of using magnets. You are the GiRL! thanks for sharing your creative genius.

  84. Marty October 20, 2010 at 3:35 am

    I love my Silhouette especially since learning so many techniques and tips from readings your postings on the quikutz and silhouette blogs. Thanks to you I have utilized my Silhouette to much fuller extent than I would have if I had not discovered you and your wonderful postings. I love my Silhouette because of the flexibility to design my own designs and the ability to use unlimited fonts from my own computer without purchasing new cards.

  85. Megan Renfree October 20, 2010 at 7:04 am

    Wow. I would Love to win this!! I was a cricut girl until I saw your designs with silhouette so I sold my cricut and bought the silhouette. And now I love it. I wish it cut 12×12 though! Can't wait to see your Christmas this & that! I have my tray ready to go for it :o)

  86. Libby October 20, 2010 at 7:34 am

    I love my Silhouette. I just bought the tattoo paper and can't wait to try it out for my daughter's birthday party. Thanks for the giveaway!

  87. Sharly October 20, 2010 at 7:36 am

    I would love to have a Silhouette someday .. but for now I am very happy with my little cricut… thanks for the wonderful offer .. i love your images:)


  88. lorraine October 20, 2010 at 8:38 am

    I love my silhouette. it's amazing for it's versatility and that I have all the potential to design anything of my own too! It's great that you can get designs from all kinds of sources too – hey Kerri (wink wink).

    I hear it is still the best quality cutter too. I'm excited to be able to take digital anything and use it with my cutter for paper crafting but would L O V E to be able to explore textiles too for other crafts.

  89. Quilter422 October 20, 2010 at 10:49 am

    i got a silhouette in late august and have been really pleased at how well it works.

  90. Monica October 20, 2010 at 11:52 am

    I love my slice, but just recently bought a cricut. When I discovered Make the Cut, it brought the cricut to a whole new level and I love it!

  91. Therese Given October 20, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    I like my Cricut but LOVE it combined with Sure Cuts A Lot software. So much fun discovering all the crafting possibilities with it! I actually feel like a somewhat creative person when using it ; )

  92. Janet Z October 20, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    I just got a Silhouette and have taken it out of the box but have yet to make my first cut. I know I will love it though.

  93. tallyscrapper October 20, 2010 at 12:34 pm

    I have both cricut and silhouette. I like my silhouette the best when I am using it. Love all
    of the designs. Then when I am using my cricut I
    like it the best. Love how easy it is. With either
    of these machines, you can make a beautiful layouts
    without having to add a lot of other embellishments
    (even though I do). I like fairly simple.

  94. Susan October 20, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    Right now I don't have any machine cutting system but my mom lets me borrow her cricut when I need it. The silhouette is definitely on my wish list though ~ someday!

  95. dawnelaine October 20, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    My "method of madness" is the Silhouette. I love that I cut a design to the size required for the page. One of the things I have learned from both you and Nichol, is cutting a design large (like a large flourish, border, or phrase) really helps to anchor the page. I love that look!

    Thanks for sharing your creativity, Kerri! Hope you have a creative week – I look forward to it! :)

  96. {VICKI} October 20, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    I have a cricut (so I guess that's my only madness)

  97. Christina October 20, 2010 at 1:48 pm

    I've become a digital girl and love it. I tinker in Photoshop at times. My cricut is back in its box, but I do pull it out for my kids' school projects.

    Thanks for the opportunity! I love your This & That!

  98. barnscrapper October 20, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    I love my Silhouette machine! I have the original model. I love that you can cut any true type font and design and cut your on creations. I wish they would come out with a 12×12 version. You inspire me and you will always be the go to gal when it come to the Silhouette machine!

  99. Brandi October 20, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    I use my Cricut…a lot! Love your projects! Thanks.

  100. peggy w October 20, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    Life without the Silhouette is like life without pajamas. It just would be as comfortable. I love the comfort and ease of my Silhouette. So many cute designs. I love your designs. The Silhouette blog just hasn't been the same without you. Thanks for the amazing giveaway. You rock.

  101. Jeremy & Amanda Butt October 20, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    So cute! So Fun!
    I have a silhouette, you inspire me!

    I LOVE the silhouette SD. I just like not having the mess by my computer. I can do what I need and take the little SD back to my silhouette and I'm rockin' and rollin'. Thanks for all the great inspiration!

    I just finished making Halloween mask using my Silhouette. The mask was a freebie. I was actually downloading halloween "stuff" and ran across the freebie and had a "light bulb" moment and started making halloween mask for my grandchildren. Loved the way they turned out. Let me just say, SILHOUETTE awesomeness!

    I have a cricut, but honestly, I use my Cuttlebug so much more. Since I can use it will any brand die that I have, it really is my go to tool. One day I hope to have a silhouette, but until I can afford it, the cuttlebug will remain what I use most.

  105. Stacey October 20, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    I have the Silhouette but had not been really inspired to use it until you came out with the This & That: Halloween. Now I am in love all over again!

    CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP!! That's the sound of my Cricut behind the closed doors of my scrapbook room as I create my master pieces(envision a mad scientist if you will)! Bwwwwaahaaaaahahhaa!

    Absolutely love my Silhouette. With the new software it just keeps getting better and better!

  108. Kelly and Dan Gengler October 20, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Definately a Silhouette girl! Can't wait to play with the This&That Gratitude kit, wether I buy it or win it! Thanks!

    Okay it's gotta be glimmer mist, is it bad I don't have a digital cutter yet? Nothing is safe from some sparkle though. Every layout and project I have done is gonna have some kind of sparkle and I love it, it just makes me happy. Thanks for a chance to win.

    I've been working my silhoutte pretty hard this week finishing up with my childrens school albums, so I can get ready for all of the halloween layout coming up in a few weeks.

  111. Denise October 20, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    I adore my Silhouette and was so happy when the Mac software was released. I was going through withdrawl since leaving my PC behind.

  112. Luv2stamp October 20, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    I LUV my Silhouette, scrapbooking and card making have never been this easy!
    TX for sharing!!
    I love all your images I can't wait to play with this one!

  113. Amy October 20, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    I am a hand cutter for now. Would love a Silhouette, but that has to wait for now. Thanks for the tips you gave to make the 3D effects, that really helped!

  114. Tracy October 20, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    I'm basically a digital wanna-be crafter! I love your designs and can't wait to see what other designs you come out with to decorate my tray with.

  115. Mel October 20, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    I have a Sil, but it's in hiatus right now, while I'm repairing flood damage in the basement where it's housed (but fortunately, it was uninjured!)

  116. Vera W. Yates (Ling) October 20, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    My Silhouette is definitely one of the best present that hubby gave me. I used my Silhouette all the time throughout Paper Crafts Gallery Idol competition. My must have tool!

  117. jbuffan October 20, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    After owning my Silhouette for almost 2 years, I finally sat down and forced myself to learn how to use it. I have fallen in love and am now learning to use the new software, my only regret is that I wasted all that time. I am making up for it now by cutting everything I can get my hands on! LOVE your downloads, and look forward to owning everything you create.
    Thank You for sharing your gift with us.

  118. Susan October 20, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    I use Cricut. I am looking into and learning more digital and am excited about that. Love this project. It is just the kind of a thing I love, but unfortunately right now I cannot afford it so….GOOD LUCK to me!?

  119. ljritchie October 20, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    I love my new Imagine because I can print and cut at the same time!

    I purchased an original Silhouette machine back when it debuted on QVC although I admit to not learning how to use it until you and Nichol began showing us what to do with it. Now, I love it! It's so versatile in that you can cut any font in any size (so long alphabet stickers) and I can also resize any design to fit my layout. But, what I love most about it is using your fabulous designs!

    I'm so happy that you are sharing your designs with us again as that was the only reason that I bought a subscription with Silhouette in the first place. Now, I have let my subscription run out and will be buying designs from you directly here. Can't wait to see the Gratitude kit. I'm sure it will be as great as the Halloween kit is!

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win a year's worth of this series as I think it is such an original concept. My fingers are crossed!

    I love my Cricut…when I can find time to use it!

  122. Scrappin Cheryl October 21, 2010 at 12:50 am

    I am pining for a Silhouette, but all my scrappy buds have the Cricut. LOVE the idea of your This & That series. The Halloween design is simply AWESOME!!

  123. SueB October 21, 2010 at 1:45 am

    I splurged on a Silhouette and now am bound and determined to clear out a stamping area in a corner of my bedroom as it's been put back in the box between uses and is not being used near as often as I SHOULD!

    I'm lovin' the Halloween THIS AND THAT project and would LOVE to win and can hardly wait to see what you pull together for the next project!

    Thanx for the inspiration!

  124. scruzfam4 October 21, 2010 at 2:49 am

    It's rare for me not to use my Silhouette on my projects and layouts. I love that machine (I only wish it would cut 12×12). I like how it can cut really detailed designs.

    Love the 'This and That' concept…can't wait to see your next designs.

  125. kathy October 21, 2010 at 3:39 am

    if you have a moment, would you walk me through getting your files to cut on my silhouette….i purchased the halloween files…..and still have had NO success with them!
    thanks so much!

  126. Amy Cochran October 21, 2010 at 12:11 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win this super awesome prize! I have an original Silhouette, and I'm just starting to tap into its potential. I love the new software they have released. I think it makes the machine MUCH easier to use, but I'm also hoping they'll release a 12 inch cutter. I saw your Halloween "This and That" at a recent crop. What a wonderful kit!

    As a class mom for 3 out of my four boys' classes,the cricut is an invaluable tool!Aside from using it for scrapbooking,I love to make labels for the children's treats and goddies that we bring to their parties.being able to make a bunch of labels at once,is truly a time saver,and it makes the presentation of whatever I am giving so much more appealing!My husband (aka:Santa)bought it for me last Christmas,and I would be lost without it!!!

    well I have 4 different die cutting systems but I do love my Silhouette as I can have a idea in the middle of the night and nearly always pull it off

  129. Janice October 21, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    I am a Silhouette girl all the way. The more I use it, the more I want to use it! I really enjoy making my own designs for it as well as downloading others' cuts. I love your design style, Kerri. Thanks so much for sharing your talent and through your giveaways. God bless, and stay strong through the tough "stuff."

    I've got a Cricut but I'm really intrigued by the Silhouette now that its software is Mac compatible. I've been having lots of fun creating Halloween decor w/ my daughter for our house.
