My Silhouette Cameo rocks!

Today I'm sharing with you a few projects that I have made using
my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine.

This machine is so awesome.  I love what it can do.

This first share is of some invites I made for one of my sisters
upcomming wedding.

It took no time with the Silhouette to cut out all of the 
invites.  The hardest part is picking which design to use.


Have a look on this card here at how clean the Silhouette
cuts.  The leaves in this design are quite intricate and yet
they look seemless and there is no way I could have done
this by hand.  I used Distress inks, Peeled Paint, Spiced
Marmelade and Broken China on Speciality Stamping Paper
and then adhered my cut out design to this.

This little owl pillow box took less that ten minutes to make
and that included making the buttons and felt eyes.
I used dies to cut out the felt and inked around the edge of
his beak.
This design does come with eyes and a beak but I wanted to
add a bit of dimension to my box.


I have used a piece of cardstock from my Carta Bella kit for
the design and it literally took a minute to do.  
I purchased the design and a few seconds later it was downloaded
into my library, 30 seconds to cut it out, and then all I had
to do was peel the design off the cutting mat, fold along the 
perforated edges and add a bit of glue.  Super easy and super
They'd make cute little party loot bags.


The doily shape and the vine like leaves I made in this layout have been
cut using the Silhouette as well.

I'm so impressed with my Silhouette and am using it all the time.

It's nice not to have to buy a cartridge that I only want for one or 
two designs.  I've seen online that there are some creating their
own cut files for the Silhouette but so far I have been buying my
in the Silhouette store.  I have a subscription with them now and it's 
awesome value.  Plus every week as well as a free design there
is a pile of designs that get put on sale at half price.  The machine
also comes with a library of designs and also a $10- gift card to
spend in the Silhouette store.

I've been learning this week how to cut out stamped images with it!
I love it so much ♥
