The Silhouette Portrait – Competition details at the bottom of this post!
The Silhouette Portrait is a really cool piece of kit. Like, REALLY COOL. I am so proud to be working with Silhouette and to help create their first TV ad – (my first TV ad for that matter, too!)
If you are crafty, you’ll probably know what it is. And I expect you want one, if you haven’t got one already.
The Silhouette Portrait is a portable, digital cutting tool that enables you to cut or draw pretty much anything you want. In any shape you like!
So who is it for?
Any fans of home craft! It’s the ULTIMATE Faff the Gaff tool!!
The Silhouette Portrait is the packed with tech and is about the size of a home laminator.
Featuring Bluetooth, you can create a design from your phone, and send it wirelessly – or, because of the PixScan technology, you can even snap a design on your phone, import it in to the software and then cut it out. It cuts card and paper stock, and also vinyl, fabric, leather, anything up to 2mm deep. Up to 8” wide and up to 10m long!! You can buy many many different materials to cut suitable for heaps of surfaces. You know the popular ‘Love Island’ style drinking bottles, personalised with your name? You can do that.
Quilter? You can precut your fabric!
Fancy tarting up your t shirt?
To make it even easier, there’s an App! Search ‘Silhouette Studio’ in the App Store.
You can print professional looking stickers
Create beautiful invites and cards
And Merch! (at last I have a t shirt with my name on!)
The Silhouette Portrait range is HUGE – this is a tiny amount of what’s on offer.

Here’s the little telly ad I helped with. See all the stuff you can make!
And here is my personal favourite version of the ad. This one won’t make it on to Sky …
As ever – thankyou for reading, and if you enter the competition, lots and lots of luck!
Be sure to tag your makes with #silhouettewithsally !
#AD – you bet it’s an AD! It’s being aired on SKY up until Christmas so keep your eyes peeled!
I love the fact that the video for the bloopers was three times longer than the actual advert .
Well done Sally you’ve convinced me that I need one in my life xx
