The New Silhouette Cameo Is Here, and a Promo! And a Shark Project.

Wheeeeee!!!  I am SO excited about the new Silhouette machine y’all.  I was so fortunate to receive their new Cameo model, and I have to say I LOVE it!

It’s bigger, better, quieter, and just plain awesome.  And it even has a pause button! Ahh, it’s the little things that make me happy. :)

What also makes me happy is that the new machine comes with just one blade, instead of having several different colored blades where you had to try and remember which was which.

Now all you have to do is just turn the dial to which setting or blade you want, and pop it in.  SO much better.

The Silhouette Cameo will cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 12″ wide and 10 feet long.  That’s huge!

I received the Fabric Ink Starter kit with the Cameo and it worked like a dream.

It cuts a stencil out on special vinyl, and then you just apply it to your project, paint, and voila!

I decided to cut out a shark stencil for my stepson, and since I am a rebel, I decided to try it out on a piece of leftover wood I had from my wagon that I put on the fall front porch.  It was actually the lid that I just took off so I could decorate the wagon.

Then I applied it to the leftover wood,

Removed the transfer tape, painted it in a grey paint, then removed the vinyl stencil and I had my shark.

I think it’s so cute! We just painted on the eye and the gills in black so they’d show up more.  And I know the shark is kind of small for the piece of wood, but I’m going to let the boy finish this piece of artwork by painting and drawing and add his special creative touch to it!  But I can’t wait to actually try the fabric ink set on some actual fabric too. *giggle*

And again, I have said in the past I’ve had a few mishaps with the old Silhouette machine when I was first starting out, but it’s a piece of cake with the new machine now.  The price, although is not cheap, is totally worth it.  And I wouldn’t lie to you.  There is a big difference in the 2 machines I think, and so it justifies the upgrade. Just my thoughts!

So are you excited or what??  Have you been waiting for the new Cameo to come out?  You’re going to love it!!

  1. I’ve been trying to decide whether to buy the Cameo when it came out. I don’t even have the old one (or a Cricut or anything else for that matter.) Now it looks like I’m gonna have to take the plunge!

  2. So i’m seeing EVERY blogger I’m following has gotten a new Silhouette Camo today, so my question is what are ya’ll going to do with your “old” Silhouette’s… I’ve been DYING for one and could care less if its the new one or the “old” one :) let me know if your planning to get rid of it/or sell it :) THANK YOU!!!

  3. I’ve never used anything like this before. But in all the blogs I read when starting my new blog, it seems like everyone uses them. I soo want one. Hmmm….do they still give money if you donate blood? Just a thought.

  4. I have the Silhouette and it has worked for me. For my little projects like boxes, vinyl stickers, bags for party favors, centerpieces. The project I want to do this christmas aer magnets for the frigde with the Silhouette. I have my Silhouette for like a year, a few months back I started to really use it and then I found about the Cameo. I guess I’ll have to wait a little to order it but still thinks its a great upgrade :)
