The Biggest Silhouette Giveaway Ever (100k Thank Yous and $3000 in Prizes)

Winners UPDATE: And the winners are... winners were all randomly drawn through the giveaway program I use! They have all been verified and emailed and I am in the process of FB messaging as well (so check your junk mail and message requests if you're on this list!)  I'm thrilled to say one of our lucky winners is even from France!

Winners now have 24 hours to claim their prizes! If I don't hear from these lucky ladies I'll have to pick another winner.

I'm struggling with how to even start this Silhouette School post knowing that it's unlike any I've ever written.  In the two and a half years of writing Silhouette CAMEO tutorials I've never been left speechless...until now.

So I guess I'll just cut to the chase and tell you all that I am overwhelmed in so many ways right now! First of all, the fact that a super niche blog and Facebook page like Silhouette School can reach 100,000 Facebook followers 100% organically in the span of a relatively short time is pretty amazing.  So to each and every one of the 100,000 of you who has shared, tagged, 'liked', commented and followed Silhouette School blog on Facebook...THANK YOU!! You are amazing and I can't thank you enough for being so loyal!

What's equally amazing is when I reached out to sponsors, brands, and Silhouette retailers I've worked with over the years - some since Day 1 and some more recently and less frequently - every single one of them not only offered to donate to the Silhouette School 100k Giveaway, but they floored me with their the tune of $3000 in prizes!

I'm talking thousands and thousands of dollars worth of Silhouette-related prizes! The value of the donations and the prize pack grew so quickly I knew we couldn't just have one winner...I mean does anyone need three heat presses, really? Let's spread the love...and have four amazing prize packs (including one that even our international friends have the opportunity to win).

Grand Prize - ($1020 Value)

Prize Pack #1 - ($820 Value)

  • Silhouette Curio from Silhouette America
  • Silhouette Mint from Silhouette America
  • Heat Press from ProWorld
  • Super Pack of Vinyl includes Silhouette School adhesive and HTV starter kits and one of every sample kits from Expressions Vinyl
  • $50 Gift Card to Expressions Vinyl
  • DecoFoil Starter Pack includes: 7 Tubes of Deco Foil,  Deco Foil Hot Melt Adhesive, Liquid Adhesive, Spray Adhesive and Foam Sheets from Therm O Web
  • Entrance Ticket to Everything Embroidery Market (September 30/Oct 1 in Birmingham, AL) with admission to Silhouette School's Melissa Viscount's class on 20 Little Known Tricks in Silhouette Studio from Everything Embroidery Market
  • 1 Font and Design Bundle of the Winner's Choice from The Hungry JPEG
  • $50 Gift Card to My Vinyl Designer  



Prize Pack #2 - ($790 Value)

I also wanted to make sure that the Silhouette School friends and readers who live outside of the US had a chance to win a cool prize, too.  This is very tricky and while most giveaways are open to US only, due to shipping and taxes, I have worked very hard to include our readers on all six continents where we have readers! (Amaze-balls!)

Please understand many of our sponsors are donating hundreds of dollars worth of items and shipping them directly to the winners, therefore we simply can't ask them to incur an added expense of international shipping.  But ... I've found a way around it by creating one all digital prize pack!  If one of the winner's randomly selected through the giveaway widget is from outside of the United States this is the prize pack they will win because all of these prizes can be delivered digitally!  Sound good?! I hope so!

Prize Pack #3 (Digital Pack) - ($275 Value)

Alright more PSA before we get to what you're really here for. Every time I have a giveaway I have people who question why they must go through so.many.steps to gain entries into a simple little giveaway.  First of this...this ain't no little giveaway, people...this is the Silhouette Giveaway of a lifetime! We're talking a CAMEO 3, a CURIO, a Mint, Three Heat Presses, Vinyl, HTV, supplies, ebooks, video courses and more and more and more!

So please understand...our very generous sponsors need love, too.  They've donated items - at no expense to me or you - and without them there's no way this type of giveaway would even be a remote possibility, let alone something I know each and every one of you wants to win!!!  I think the least we can do to is recognize their awesomeness by following each of the sponsors on the social media channel of their choice or signing up for their emails.

Please know you don't have to do all of the actions to enter the fact you only HAVE to do one (and you'll get extra points for doing it).  But with each action, you gain an extra entry (and we will be verifying the actions requested were taken) the more you do the more chances you have to win. You feel me?  (If you are already following or subscribing as an entry requests, you would simply check the box as complete. Please remember, we will be verifying entries. For example, if you are already subscribed to Silhouette School emails you would just type in the email address that you subscribed previously.)

Alright now let's get this party started to celebrate hitting 100,000 followers on Silhouette School's Facebook Page! (If the giveaway is slow loading...try from your computer and know that lots and lots of lots of you are on here at the same time, so please be patient!) The giveaway will be open for a full week so you have time!

Winners will be contacted by email the week of August 22 after being verified. Each winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize. If the prize is not claimed within 24 hours after the time the email was sent, a new winner will be chosen.
