Santa Came Early.........
I received a new Silhouette Cameo for Christmas. Actually, I sold my Cricut Expression and all my cartridges to help Santa with the purchase. I am really having a blast cutting with this new machine. I loved my Cricut Expression and used it a lot, but the one thing that the Cricut did not do well was make intricate cuts and that is the one thing I really wanted it to do. Sooo... after much research - reading blog posts and watching YouTube videos - I decided to invest in the Cameo.
Like anything else there is a bit of a learning curve, but the Cameo is very easy to use. When I first started downloading images from the Silhouette store it was not going well. The folks at Silhouette were updating their website and that created a lot of glitches. I had an issue associated with this and called customer service - my issue was resolved with this one phone call - the Silhouette customer service was excellent. The Silhouette website is now running smoothly. I know this because I visit it about once a week to use my gift cards that came with my Silhouette to purchase and download images.
I purchased my Silhouette from Overstock.com. The package included the Silhouette Cameo machine, a dust cover for the machine, glitter and adhesive paper as well as $35 in downloading gift cards to the Silhouette store.
The Silhouette does not cut chipboard, but that was not high on my priority list as I have Sizzix and other dies that have that capability.
I really am enjoying the Cameo! If you have any questions about the Cameo, please don't hesitate to ask and I will be happy to try to answer them.
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
