Another Thank You


Here's a thank you card that I hadn't gotten around to posting.  My parents gave me money toward a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas, so of course I had to make their card with my new machine.  This was an easy card to make, using a cut by Lori Whitlock that I purchased from the Silhouette Online Store.  I modified it a little bit, but not much.

I've been getting some questions about what I think of the Cameo.  First, let me say that I love my E2 and my Imagine, and I will definitely not be giving them up!  The reason I wanted a Cameo was for creating my own designs or being able to take an image such a sports team logo from the internet and turn it into a cut (very important when you have a teenage son).  It's also great when I need a particular cut, but don't want to buy an entire cartridge, like with the dragon I used on yesterday's card.

So far, I have to say that the free Silhouette Studio program is easy to use for the basics.  I still have a lot to learn in terms of using all of the tools for designing my own projects.  I'm also very impressed with how well the Cameo cuts intricate designs.  The letters on this card are cut from Papertrey Ink cardstock, which is one of the thickest around, and they cut beautifully.  All in all, I'm happy with my new toy and look forward to exploring it some more!


I've forwarded to Emma the name of the person from my blog who is in the running for the BIG My Creative Time January Stamp Release Blog Hop Prized:  $100 Gift Certificate to Custom Crops!
