Whats your views on the silhouette cameo

Recommended Posts

I'm very interested in the silhouette cameo after a lovely friend suggested it to me & I looked into it, so if you've got one or have a friend that has one what do you think to it?

 

I understand it cuts not only paper & card but also magnet sheet, fabric, ply & so on :)

I have a Silhouette Portrait and I love it!!  There are 50 free cutting files to start you off and then you have $10 to spend on the Silhouette website.  A couple of things though,

1) you need to calibrate your printer to your Silhouette and

2) both the Cameo and Portrait will use the cheaper Cricut mats

 

Oh, by the way, there is a Silhouette Plus forum with lots of free cutting files and humungous amounts of help to get started!!

I have had a craft robo for years, and the silhouette software runs on it.  It is so versatile, and easy to design on it.  And there are loads andloads of designs really cheap.  I am pretty sure you can just download the software for free.  My old robo doesn't cut througb very thick card, but would guess things have improved.

 

Check out the silhouette blog for loads of ideas.
