Silhouette Cameo: My newest “toy”

It’s not exactly new anymore having it since May 17, 2013.

I’ve been eyeing this machine for quite a while and caved in when Amazon had an offer I couldn’t refused. PLUS free shipping… hollah!

The package came with “extras” I didn’t expect (an extra mat, cutting blade, metallic pens, a paper picker upper (?) thing-y and a $10 download card for buying artwork from their store. I’m guessing $50 buckaroos worth of free stuff. I loves me some free stuff, ya’ll!

I’ll be posting some projects I’ve worked on and actually completed (yay!), some projects that are in the works and so on. Since this machine is the latest addition, I’ll make sure and take note which die cut machine I’ve used in said projects.

After reading the instructions on how to set-up the Cameo (it’s soooo not me to do that sort of thing!!!) I decided to do test runs on hubby’s logo.

Not problemo cutting the AFT logo which is almost 3″ tall and….

… loved the way the Silhouette Cameo cut letters at this size (approximately 5/8″ tall).

The STASJ was also put to the test and the Silhouette Cameo did not fail to deliver.

I mean, look at this… this one was less than 1/2 ” tall and did a really good  job considering it was practically cutting an outline of her name.

Oh, the fun that lays ahead of me.
