Hi, I recently purchased a Cameo Silhouette-- another cutting machine!@#!! The Cricut is still my favorite, by far:) I just wanted a tool for cutting cursive fonts, chevrons, and Polaroid boxes. Watch, another Cricut cartridge will come out with all of these shapes!
Back to the Silhouette-- I opened the box and thought-- I can use this without reading the instructions! After all, our husbands say this all the time! Well, I was wrong!
Thankfully, I found some helpful hits on You Tube. Below is a LO that I created with Basic Grey's 'Out of Print' line. The chevrons, poloroid frame and title were cut using the Silhouette. The little camera stamp is from CTMH.
I'm glad that I used this tool. Now I just have to open the box and use my Cinch! Oh well, so many scrapbooking tools, just so little time!
