Y'all, I am so excited! I received my Silhouette Cameo on Friday evening.....UPS always delivers out here last thing! Everything was in the package and may I add VERY nicely packaged, and it took me no time at all to have it up and running. During my playing over the weekend I discovered that my blade is defective..............but no problem as Silhouette America is sending me a new one and in the meantime I decided to use the blade system that I use with my CraftROBO (I named HER "Roberta") and it is working wonderfully........OMG I am so happy!!! By the way, the Customer Service at Silhouette America is great!!!! Oh and let me add that I named my Cameo "Sophie"....don't ask me why, it just popped into my head. By tomorrow I should have a little project ready to post, but in the meantime here are some of my cuttings that I made while playing with my new toy!!!! "Best Friends", "Chandelier", "Leaf Corner", "Flower Print & Cut" and the "Flower Medallion" are all files that you can purchase for $.99 a piece at the Silhouette America site and they are fabulous cutting files!
And here is a card that I made using a free cutting file by Tina Fitch and you can download the free SVG or GSD here! Tina is in the UK and she is SO talented...I just love her and her designs!!! I also want to point out that I used a "Silver" Pentel Slicci pen in the "Pen Tool" made by Sue Reynolds (aka/HotPaws) for the CraftROBO/Silhouette and it works great in the Cameo!!! You can find them at her site here and she has them for many different cutters! The good thing about her Pen Tool is that you can use a lot of different size pens and markers in it! The red and green on the card is done with Silhouette "Sketch Pens"......they came in a number different colors including metallic which I still want to purchase!
Well, it's back to work...............I just wanted to share my excitement and joy with all of you! Come back tomorrow to check out my project!
