{Make the Cut…

Andy, the owner of Make the Cut, works so hard to improve his software and make it better. He has added a KNK plug in, silhouette plug in and is now working on a fantastic upgrade.

He has worked 16 hour days to get this software out to us and so I want to pay it forward a bit. I thought about donating some money towards the upgrade, but then had a better idea. Why not introduce someone else to Make the Cut and hope they love it as much as I do. Leave me a comment on this post and tell me what you would use MTC for and I will use some random number generator thing and buy one person a registration code for MTC. You will have to download the program from their website, but it’s easy peasy lemon squeezy.

** Remember, MTC no longer works with Cricut **

Here is the web site with details of the software:

Oooh, I have a better idea. I will pick a winner the day he releases the upgrade. I know it will give you at least a week to leave me a comment. 🙂

Edited: please enter only once and make sure you leave your e-mails I can reach you.

    Wow-what an incredible opportunity! I’ve been researching MTC because I’ve heard so many awesome things about it…I currently have SCAL…but I’ve heard that MTC is superior. Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. kittski says:

    yipppee skippyyy! Thanks for the great opportunity to make someone very happy. I have a dear friend who’s been waiting for MTC, but just has other $ priorities right now. I’d love to win this or her. (
    BTW, you’re blog title is one of my all time favorites. 🙂 )

  6. Brenda says:

    Wow! So nice of you to do this! I would give the MTC software to my granddaughter; to encourage another generation of MTC lover’s! Nothing like making sure that our next generations have the opportunity to be creative and be able to have such a wonderful program to work with!!! She already loves art and this would be the next step to introduce her to another application of creativity and the chance to learn as a 11 year old girl. I haven’t let her use my BCC yet but she has been bugging me; so will soon. Her mother has done computer programming and you never know; she could end up learning that computer programming has alot of different opportunities. MTC curly girl

  12. Martha Leskinen says:

    Thanks for doing this! I have been looking into MTC (heard so much good about it) since I am about to get a new cutter! Would love to win!!

  13. Nelda says:

    This is wonderful and a great idea! I love it that I could give one away, I have several friends who use cutters, I don’t think they realize how much they can do with their cutters with MTC!. How I would use it: to give it away. I already make cards with my copy. neldacnm at yahoo or on the MTC forum.

    • Denise Allen says:

      This is very generous of you to give somebody the opportunity to get the amazing software free! I would love to win!

  14. JessicaL says:

    Deb, this is such a cool idea! Although I already own MTC, I know someone that would like it. Her name just may be Deb as well 😉 Now here’s hoping to a speedy release!

  15. Terri Weston says:

    Looks like I might use my KNK even more if I had a simpler way to design and transfer raster images.

  16. Nancy says:

    I have heard great things from people who own both a Klic n Kut and Make The Cut!

  17. Bobbie Czajka says:

    What a generous offer! I have been contemplating purchasing the software.

    I have many, many files saved in all the different formats, starting with my original cutting machine, the Wishblade. I figure that someday down the road, I’ll figure out how to use the programs to cut on my current machine, the KNK.

    You can reach me when I win at mamacz at sbcglobal dot net. (lol)

  18. Karrie says:

    What a nice giveaway ! I downloaded the demo and think it is awesome. I would love to own a copy. Thanks for the opportunity.

  19. Wow!! That is really nice. Thanks for such a great giveaway. I would use MTC to run both my Knk groove and my craft robo. 🙂

  20. Bryan Wyland says:

    Wow! A nice pay it forward!
    I’m new to the whole crafting & cutting world. I got a Silhouette to cut heat transfer for soccer jersey’s; but am learning something new everytime I sit down & search the web! I’m having a hard time deciding on buying something new vs the Studio. I downloaded SCAL 3 & MTC. not sure what the newer version of MTC is going to have. Just so indecisive…

  21. Pam Zimmer,an says:

    You’re so kind. I would love to get a copy of MTC as I have a KNK and I’ve only heard wonderful things about the software. I heard that the print and cuts work great so that is what I would start working on with the software. Thanks. Pam

  22. Sandy says:

    Wow, how generous of you. I don’t have it yet.

  23. Jenn says:

    I would love the opportunity to get MTC. I have heard lots of great things and would love to learn more!!

  24. Marla H. says:

    What a genourous giveaway. I own a Silhouette and would LOVE this software so that I could easily cut SVG files to my Silhouette instead of having to convert them to another file format.

  25. What I would to with MTC: Over the past few months I have been trying to start a small business making decals and Rhinestone templates. With the SW that I have it takes hours upon hours to make one perfect design therefore I cannot make any money doing what I love. Recently, I heard about the AMAZING ability it has for tracing and making Rhinestone patterns and with the the trace option being upgraded to work even better I might even be able to make a buck or two!

    I am so hoping to give this SW a try so that I can continue doing what I love!

    Thank you for the chance to be able to win not only the SW but possibly a successful business!


  26. Janice Tobin says:

    Wow. Thank you so much for the opportunity. I have KNK and have been “playing” around with the trial version of MTC. I would love the chance to win the program. I’m excited for a chance to learn more about it and make use of the fabulous print/cut feature I’ve heard so much about.

  27. Brenda J says:

    What a nice thing to do. If I win, I will give it to my daughter who got a Silhouette for Christmas. She has young children so doesn’t have tons of extra money.

    Again, thanks for the opportunity to win.

  28. Sandy Holterfield says:

    I would love a copy of the Make the Cut. I understand that it will make my print & cuts easier on my KNK Maxx! I now I hear that it’s autotrace is great!

    Sandy H

  29. Lori m says:

    Amazing and generous gift and chance to win, thank you.

    I’d use this program for so much. I make cards for folks dealing with health issues and regular occasions. I also alter items, pretty much anything that doesn’t run away from me. I’m starting to do more with vinyl, mostly for our home but ,our daughter seems to get her request finished quicker, after all many are for our grandson’s room so that’s a must.

    Also, I share free files on my blog site, so this would be great for my shared files as with the contest and challenges I enter. I have a Wishblade and Gazelle and our daughter a Silhouette so the program would be well used and appreciated. Thank you again, 🙂

  30. omayrad says:

    Thank you so much Deb. This program would be great to a fantastic tracing, which I Love, and to make lattice cards that have been a goal for me.

  31. Wendy says:

    What a lovely idea. I’ve been wanting to try MTC with my new Silhouette. I can’t wait to see the upgrade!

  32. Julia Diane says:

    I would LOVE to win this software to use with my brand new Silhouette SD.. thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity to win big! I’m so looking forward to exploring all the awesomeness of this new cutting world!

  33. Pat Stimac says:

    Oh course! What a generous offer. thank you!!!

  34. Pam M says:

    Wow – you are most generous for this. Don’t own MTC yet, but being a software junkie……….
    Thanks for the offer.

  35. Lynn C. says:

    I would use Make the Cut for importing and cutting SVG files. It would be exciting
    to have another file extension option. Thanks for this great opportunity.

  36. Judy K says:

    Thanks!! I’ve yet to use my MTC but am planning on doing some awesome print and cuts with it .
    An auto trace will also be good since I do a lot of designing.

  37. Susan Minter says:

    I have just been looking at MTC, and I really think, what I have seen would be a great addition to my KNK! Would love to be a proud owner and get started using it!!

  38. What a generous offer! I purchased the Silhouette to aid in creating masks for glass etching as I would like to start making some money off my hobby. I’m holding my own in Studio albeit with some frustrations and have heard the MTC would make my life easier, however after investing in the Silhouette I don’t have much spare cash at the moment. It would be wonderful to be able to access more designs without having to go through all these conversion hassles I have now. Have a wonderful weekend!

  39. Johanne L says:

    Thank you very much! So generous of you.

  40. Aimee Berger says:

    I have a KNK and so a lot of cutting for local non-profits and military units. There are so many rules with the units that anything they can get at a discount helps. Any program that helps me serve them, I am all for!

  41. Lynn Barwald says:

    Thanks so much for this opportunity to win a copy of MTC. I love my KNK and would love new software for it! THANKS!!! Lynn@LuckyCharmCrafts.com.

  42. Gonne says:

    What a great way to support the developers of Make the Cut, I would use it to cut SVG files from with my silhouette without having to convert them first. I heard a lot of positive respons about MTC so I would love to try it by myself.

  43. Barbie Creech says:

    How generous of you! I won’t enter since I already own it. Hope someone new wins! the programs are awesome!

    Thanks for making this available for us. I would love to have this program.

  46. Carole Toppen says:

    WOW–thanks so much for doing this–I have been toying with getting MTC to use with my Silhouette for awhile now. Even if I am not picked, I will probably get it once the upgrade is out. I have always heard great things about this program.

  47. Sally says:

    WOW!This is exciting! I would love to win MTC! I have been researching it and hoped to buy it after my son’s wedding next weekend (if I have any $$ left!) Thanks for the chance!

  48. Nicole Rothschild says:

    What an awesome thing to do to show your support! I would probably give the software to one of my die cut customers. She purchases my paper die cuts, but owns a Cricut. I think she’d benefit from owning this!

  49. Lois says:

    Wow – I am about to purchase MTC but would give it to my granddaughter!

  50. jean says:

    Thanks for the great idea! I would love to win a copy, if I don’t already purchase it first!! I just recently (this morning) tried a SVG from Lettering Delights, and boy was it slick!! I had tried in my KNK software, and had no luck, but MTC was so so easy!! So i will be using it for print and cuts with all my lettering delight svgs!!

    Thank you!!

  57. Gayle Scott says:

    Hi Deb. I share your passion in spreading the word around for a great product. I love the Silhouette Studio but I’m quickly outgrowing it now that I’ve been making my own designs and sharing the templates for free on my blog (http://ligayatg.blogspot.com/). I’m most interested in the enhanced auto-trace function of MTC that Sandy McCauley mentioned. She said that she saw a preview of it and is raving about it. And most of all, I’m a firm believer in the principle of ‘pay forward’ and I always practice it, too. Thank you so much for your generosity. Kudos to you!


  58. Roxanne says:

    How very cool, what an opportunity, I’ve just received my Silhouette and keep reading how good MTC is. I am currently working with my daughters primary school getting it started to be sustainable environmentally, we have to do heaps of fundraising and I reckon this may be the inspiration towards coming up with some great things for that. THANKYOU

  72. Teresa says:

    Wooohoooo Count me in for the drawing Please….. Pretty Please…… I have had my KNK for about 4 or 5 years, and still don’t use it. I get frustrated with the software. I recently downloaded the trial of MTC and it looks great. I am just on the verge of making my first cut with the trial to see how it all works. BTW thank you for allowing us to use the trial version in a fully operational capacity.

  73. shelly says:

    WOW – that is very generous of you to give away a software program! I have SCAL, but would love to upgrade to MTC.

    I would love to win the MTC…as in jumping up and down excited. Thank you so much for even thinking about it and giving us all a chance.

  81. Jill Metcalf says:

    I;ve been hearing such wonderful things about this software and would love the opportunity to experience this at leisure when I’m not working. Although I have Silhouette Studio, I’m sold on the idea of having this easier to use program. It would give me the courage to begin trying to create my own designs rather than feel overwhelmed with my Studio software. You can reach me at jill.metcalf@yahoo.com

  82. Susan Vigansky says:

    Hi, I’m fairly new to silhouette and am really interested in this software.
    I’d love to win it……………..


  83. Pat B says:

    What a great offer. I would love to win MTC to use with my daughters and friends.

  84. Thanks for this chance for MTC. I’m older and have a CR. I’m technically challenged most times and thought this might help me put my CR to use. thanks so much for this opportunity.

  85. Jen L says:

    Thanks for this great opportunity. Crossing my fingers =)

  86. Kelly says:

    If I were to win this software, I would use it to cut out words in vinyl to use as a border all around the windows of our shop. The words would describe the flowers and gifts we sell and our attitude. We are kookie fun crazy silly and over the top. I would also use it for doing more scrapbooking and also making fancy picture frame borders and things.

  87. This sound just awesome!!! Thanks for the opportunity. I have a KNK Maxx and Cricut Personal and I use the Cricut with Fairycuts. I have found that Fairycuts are just sooo much easier than my KNK software. So I would LOVE to see if Make-the-Cut brings back the magic of my KNK.

  88. Angie Walters says:

    I’ve been checking his software and have heard so many great comments about MTC. Would love to own it. Love your projects and the seashell cupcake holders were awesome!

  89. Vanessa Haberman says:

    Wow! How great of you to offer this! I have a KNK and CrafRobo, and have been eyeing MTC, because I have a cutting problem. 🙂 cmvanessa01 at gmail dot com

  90. Wow! This is so cool of you. I would love to do Print and cuts easier. I also like some of the other things that MTC might makes easier to do than studio does. Looks wonderful! Good luck everyone!

  91. Kerrie Saunders says:

    Wow, it sounds like this program has a lot to offer. I haven’t tried print and cuts with my KNK yet, but am really keen to give it a go and it sounds easy with Make The Cut. Would love the chance to own a copy 🙂

  92. Nelda says:

    Still waiting! Oh, this will be great, I can’t wait for the new version! neldacnm at yahoo
