My New Toy!

Hi Everyone!
I did it.....
I bought a Silhouette Cameo.
And I love it.
I've been having so much fun learning all about it.  I've made some mistakes,  wasted some paper, and spent hours way too late into the night working on it, but I don't care.  
I think I'm in love.

Here's a little gift box that I made.
I cute-i-fied it up with some 3 Girl JAM ribbon and background and sentiment stamps from Pink by Design.

Who else is taking the leap to the Silhouette?  Or have you always had one?

PS- I'm keeping my Cricut too.  It will always be my first love.  :0)


  1. Mine comes tomorrow!!! I am so so so super excited!!
    Love your beautiful box!! Great job!!
    Tfs :)

  2. Yay! So happy for you! You are just gonna love it!

  3. Your box came out so nice. I am so tempted--talk me out of it-- I like your new blog look to.

  4. Your box is just adorable! Congratulations on the Cameo! I have been thinking of getting one and my birthday is coming up!! Is it easier than Cricut?

  5. Sounds so fun!! Your box is adorable! Have fun with your cameo and I can't wait to see all the fun creations!
    Have a WONDERFUL evening!

  6. I agree! I will be keeping my Cricut and I have the Cameo! Cameo is my NEW first love, but Cricut will be a close second!!!

    Have fun with your toy!!!

  7. Super box! This machine is on my very long want list!

  8. LOVE THE BOX!!!!!

  9. congrats on your new toy. i just got my cameo recently and i'm lovin it. i'm glad to see more people getting the cameo. i'm hoping we'll start seeing lots of creative projects made with the cameo vs the cricut. i still use my cricut (i've got too mudh invested in carts not to), but i mudh prefer the cameo.

  10. Julie, shame on have been watching the Silhouette on HSN and drooling. I love my Cricut, but this would be a great addition...wink wink. It doesn't need a mat and draws (some) things at the same time. Can't wait to see what you do with. Keep the projects coming. I guess I'll put my request in for one...shame on're an enabler.

    Have a great time with your new happy for you.

  14. ooops! Julie, I was so excited for you, I was mixed up a wee bit. I can't say I've heard of the Cameo Silhouette. I was watching HSN recently and they were showing the ECraftwell machine. I'm so glad for you and love your project.
