Silhouette Cameo, Typography Craft

My New Toy: Silhouette Cameo

For Christmas every year, my now-husband and I always set a budget for shopping. He made the mistake of giving us a number of gifts two years ago; and even though it was supposed to be only one gift… I let each of the kids buy him one, so he got a lot more than me. Well, this last year in 2016, he got me back…

We had a $50 limit, and I was good! I only spent $57. Not bad at all. When I got the giant box from my husband, I knew he had cheated. Best way to cheat the rules ever!

He got me a Silhouette Cameo!

The Silhouette Cameo 2 is an incredible crafting machine that can add a whole new level of creativity to my arsenal… It’s a die-cutting machine that can cut out designs, patterns, images, text from paper, fabric, vinyl and so much more. Go here to learn more about the Silhouette Cameo 3. I have the 2nd version, but they are still very similar if you want to see what this machine can do.

With my husband, I set up my new toy to try out the machine. Nothing crazy; just a quick test. The basics of it include downloading the software onto my computer, setting up the machine,  then creating a quick type image in the program, and clicking “Cut”. Boom.

I have so many ideas of what I am going to do with this machine.. including fixing my First Mod Podge Sign Disaster. I will definitely share more as I create. The next problem is to figure out what to do next!

Until then,

Love what you do, and do what you love.
