New Year - New Craft TOY

OK! Let me just say..I LOVE MY PC PRODUCTS (expression/gypsy). I WILL continue to use them and love the cartridges I have.....BUT.....due to all the problems PC has had with their products and updates and everything.  I have finally decided its time for a NEW CRAFT TOY!!!! I'm REALLY HOPING the Easter Bunny will bring me a Silhouette Cameo!!! I"ve seen lots and lots of videos and blogs and I want a Silhouette so I can play with FONTS!!! The video links below is what convinced me I NEED ONE!!!! Just think you wouldn't have to buy anymore stamps..YIPPPEEE!!!! These videos are so COOL!! and theres so much MORE you can do too......I can't wait for Easter!!!!!
This first video is my favorite!!!

OK- saw this one the other day....aarrrgh... is it Easter yet???? this was SO NEAT!!!

Aren't these videos the NEATEST THING????? WOWZA!!! I can hardly wait.....

With the Silhouette I can print tiny letters/words then cut a shape around it and won't have to worry about my expression eatting it more buying stamps either, I can design my own!!
Yeah I know, I've used the pens/markers with the expression to "write words" but its such a PAIN spacing or welding and its not a single line font and you have to color it in yourself or leave it as is.....The Silhouette will DO ALL THAT for can't get any easier.........I'm SO EXCITED I don't know if I can wait for the Easter bunny.... income tax refund comes A LOT SOONER...ROTFLOL!!!!!!


  1. I know EXACTLY what you mean :O) My PC products were my first machines, and I have truly enjoyed using them but was getting a bit frustrated with the issues you mentioned. After watching videos and reading up on it, My AWESOME Hubby got me a Cameo for my bday/christmas gift :O) Yes, it cuts as smoothly as they say and it does AWESOME with small intricate cuts too, I am in awe! I have yet to upgrade to the DE software and am just using the free one, but at this point, it is so easy to use, and I am NOT computer savy! There is an AWESOME MB called Silhouette Plus with so much great information, and the people on there are so amazing and helpful :O) I hope you get one!!! I know you will love it! :O)

  2. thank you for the great videos.I have been looking into this machine and i want it too!I hope i get one for my birthday which is in March.

  3. Congratulations on your decision! Easter will be here before you know it. In the meantime you can go ahead and download the Silhouette software (it's free) and start playing around. They also offer a free shape a week, plus 50 free ones in the beginning so you can play around with those too.

  4. You will love it! My husband got tired of me being so frustrated with Cricut he bought me the SD, then he noticed I am always happy when I use my SIL. For Christmas, he bought me the Cameo as a total surprise! I hope you get the Cameo soon!!! Come join my blog if you want.

  5. I agree with you about PC!!!

    Hope you and your family enjoyed a wonderful holiday, my friend!
