I love my gadgets. Especially ones that I’ve been lusting after for awhile and finally get my hands on. I just started card making a few months ago. I want to do scrapbooking, but we don’t print out pictures ever (I go to CVS if I want to print a picture). So that makes it difficult. But in researching DIY, I realized that with the Silhouette Cameo (sexy beast below), I can do most of the DIY crafts that I want.
This baby takes it past just scrapbooking. I can make decorations, cards, many things with fabric and vinyl transfers for most anything. It’s pretty exciting as the ideas are just about endless (check out their Pinterest boards here). My mind gets racing and dh knows I’m in trouble because all of a sudden I want to hand make EVERYTHING. haha
First I’m registering my software and downloading the freebies. Then starting this weekend I’ll work on making some initial shapes and hopefully end the weekend with a baby shower invitation design. I’m so excited about all the opportunities this machine makes possible. Wish I could be using it every night, but works been busy. So my sexy new gadget must wait until the weekend. I will post some pictures of initial shapes and things I make. But not the shower invites just yet. That will be for my overall shower post. ^_^ Or one of a couple shower posts. lol
The Silhouette Cameo bundle I got on Amazon.com was around $260 (I think), I had some gift cards which took the heft out of the price. Just had to finally pull the trigger. It arrived here super fast, but I haven’t been able to play yet. In the meantime, isn’t the picture below almost enough to make you want to buy one? hehe
