You may have seen that line above on my facebook during the week. Well it all started a couple of years ago when I was able to borrow my step-mother's Cricut machine and realized how much fun an electronic die-cut machine was. Well I had to give back my step-mother's Cricut over a year ago now. Since then I discovered another electronic die-cut machine ... the Silhouette Cameo.
It looked just like what I was wanting. I wanted something that I could design my own images and cut them out. Also not to be restricted to purchase cartridges but to purchase images as and when I wanted them and build up my own library of images. It also needed to be able to hook up to the computer. The Silhouette Cameo does all this. So a couple of months ago I put my order in for one ...
On Tuesday this week it finally arrived!
I was literally bouncing round my office. Luckily my daughter Grace was home so as I unpacked my new machine she took lots of photos.
|Getting it out of the shipping box was hard, it was a tight fit, but worth it|
|Opening the box and discovering. |
Notice that cat couldn't care less.
|Lifting it out, so exciting|
|Taking the packaging off the Silhouette - so much tape|
|Finally I can open it. And guess what, there was more tape.|
|Removing the last piece of tape from the blade holder.|
|And here she is, in all her glory|
But last night my daughter Melissa picked up a gift for a friend of hers so we made a cute little gift bag using the Silhouette Cameo.
So now to find all my layouts that need titles. I know I left some without titles so I could do them once my Silhouette Cameo arrived, but do you think I can find them. Oh well what a shame I might just have to do some more scrapbooking :)
Happy Scrappin' everyone!
