Honestly??? Giving the answer to the question of "What is that?" when people see my Cameo at a crop..."It's like a Cricut...but better...no carts." Hee Hee!

But seriously, I just love being able to cut what I want when I want it. I have tons of fonts to pick from, a gazillion designs from the online store because of subscriptions, and I can import designs I find out there that I may want or need. I finally got my laptop hooked up to printer a couple of months ago so I've been having fun with finally being able to do Print & Cuts.

But if I had to pick one thing it would be cutting a 12x12 background design in the same CS as my base page CS for a really cool look!

I thought about it for a while too, Henri!!!

Husker Mom, mine doesn't cut 12x12,,,but since I only do cards, I'm pretty ok with that Might try that trick on a smaller scale for cards though!

My fave would be the online store and all that it offers. I can spend hours looking through it!
Love being able to print and cut and the fact that its so darn easy (and accurate ).
And of coarse the fact that it cuts cleaner than my Cricuts.

YEAH MISS HOLLY!!!!!!! CONGRATS !! He is only buying it to make up for all of the messes he makes.


I have one on my wishlist now since I saw some of the cute stuff. I showed dh yesterday & said I wanted one. I also told him that I used to paper piece by hand. I loved doing it. Since I am older... I do not feel that way anymore.

Congratulations!

I love being able to design and cut my own titles (welding letters, adding letters to shapes etc.)
I love being able to sketch with the sketch pens directly onto my cardstock..
I love being able to shop in the online store and get whatever design I want IMMEDIATELY!
I love being able to cut adhesive, vellum etc. into whatever shape I want!
I love being able to make, print and cut my own journal cards, ATCs etc..

There are so many reasons to love a Silhouette....you will love it too!

ALL of the above!!

Plus I love being able to cut punch-like borders without all that pesky punching.

I love being able to cut flourishes and shapes even with Grungepaper! Yippee!!

Plus, with the Designer Edition software, you can use any .svg file.

I have used it on almost every layout since I bought it.

HAPPY HAPPY!!
