I took advantage of Silhouette America's Black Friday sale last week and ordered myself an early Christmas present. I have had my eye on the new Cameo ever since I new it was coming. Yes, I know I have a Cricut Expression, and I don't really need another electronic die cutting machine (can you tell I'm about to give an excuse?), but it seemed so much easier to use. And it is.
I have had my Cricut for over 4 years, and because I have used it no more times than I can count on one hand, I have to try to figure it out every time I want to make something with it. That is not fun to me. And the cartridges are wicked expensive, especially when you don't use all the images on them. With a Silhouette, I can buy only the images I want (most of them for 99 cents), or I can design my own. Plus it will cut any font I have on my computer. Score!! I was sold.
The first project I wanted to make was a sign for my kids' bathroom. It is a smaller scale of a subway sign I want to make with our 'house rules'. I had a lot of fun figuring out how to design it, and I think it turned out pretty good. The kids, however, don't think it is necessary. ha!
After I uploaded these pictures I decided it would look better without the circle and line thingies that separate the phrases, so just pretend they're not there. ;-)
Can any of you stampers out there figure out what I used for the wood block?
I've been busy making things to put in my etsy shop, too, so stay tuned for more info.
I'm such a tease!
This is not a paid advertisement, I just love my new Cameo!
