Silhouette Cameo Machine

I am so excited to have gotten this amazing machine for Christmas from my husband. It's uses are almost unlimited and what's especially great is that you can cut your own designs and are not limited to cartridges or patterns you have to purchase (although they have some nice templates available.) My first few attempts did not cut completely through the paper but after making a few adjustments I got it to work. It is a bit noisy but very easy to use, quick and makes nice clean cuts.

At the beginning of the month I created a few of these paper balls from the pattern provided by How About Orange and cut each of the pieces by hand and then tried one with the Cameo... what a difference! It can cut a variety of different materials: paper and cardstock, adhesive vinyl, fabric, heat transfer material, rhinestone templates and other specialty media like see through stencil material. I'm looking forward to some new projects in 2012 with this machine!
