New crafting toy!


My hubby bought me an awesome Christmas gift.. here she is:


A Silhouette Cameo cutting tool!  (I really need to stop taking such angled photos!)

I was starting to get interested in one after seeing some awesome projects online and I guess I talked (hinted) to my husband about it enough!

I've used it for some simple projects over the last few days..  My first attempt at it is probably a very common one, customizing the control panel with some scrap book paper I had lying around:



I used some vinyl samples to create a decal for my son's new scooter.  I purchased the image from the silhoutte store.
 
 
And  for New Years Eve I created some fun photo props also using images from the silhouette store.


I'm looking forward to trying some canvas projects.  Maybe a canvas version of the subway art I created before.

The thing I really excited about is using the machine to cut fabric. I'm not sure how well it will work, but I'm hoping to be able to cut some appliques and maybe the fabric for small scale projects.

Do you have a Cameo or similiar cutting tool?  What do you use it for?
