So excited ...

It's here, it's here, it's here!!!!

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
Ta-da!
So then came the working out how to use it.  I had to wait for Brad to get home so he could find a NZ plug for it and then the magic began.  I cut out just a couple of quick sample shapes. Nothing worth showing LOL!

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.
It is cute!
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!
