My hubs bought me this Silhouette Cameo for my birthday. I have quite a few Cricut machines, including the Imagine, but I wanted the Cameo because it offers flexibility. I can print and cut pretty much anything with it's print and cut feature. I couldn't wait to start using it.
The Cameo is easy to load. The mat looks flimsier than the Cricut but it's very durable!
My first cuts were of a running girl and her arm. It's not broken. It's supposed to be glued to her body as a layer. Since I wanted a silhouette, I chose to scrap her extra arm.
Here she is on her finished card! My first card made with my new Cameo. I love this machine. Will I get rid of my Cricut stuff? Probably not....but I will be buying much, much less.
