This month’s giveaway is one Silhouette Portrait with the Design Studio software.

The Silhouette Portrait is the newest personal craft cutter from Silhouette with an 8-inch cutting mat. It’s small in size, small on price, and BIG on features! Check out the features between the basic and the Designer Edition software:

What’s so great about the Silhouette is you can cut ANY font on your computer — no extra charge! There’s no need to buy cartridges either! With the Silhouette, you have a whole arsenal of fonts that you can start cutting right away, right on your computer. You can also use the Silhouette software to trace your own designs, or purchase individual designs from the extensive Silhouette Online Store. You don’t have to buy a whole cartridge for just one design! Most designs in the Silhouette Online Store are 99¢ or less. Plus there’s a new free shape each week that can be downloaded and kept permanently in your Silhouette Studio library.
