The Silhouette Cameo machine is an amazing invention. It it my favorite crafting tool and I use it all of the time. If you are a Cricut fan then you could use that the same way.
When I owned my scrapbook store I invested in a Cricut and loved it. That was back when you had to have cartridges to be able to use the fonts. I wanted to be able to use my own fonts and back then, the Silhouette allowed me to do that! So..I got one. And I have never looked back.
So, I am going to show you 10 fabulous Silhouette Cameo projects and some different ways I have used this amazing machine!
If you are interested in the Silhouette Cameo machine you can check out the Silhouette website for more information. This is not a sponsored post and I do not work for Silhouette. But I do love their products.
I do post and am on the Design Team for StyleTechCraft vinyl. If you would like more information about their vinyl I will add a link below to an online shop to purchase. You will love them. Another thing is that I like to purchase sheets as opposed to rolls. Fighting with the “curls” of the rolls drives me crazy. The sheets are just easier to work with…IMO!
I also love the Silhouette Mint. If you are a rubber stamper, you can make your own stamps using the Mint machine. It is so fun. You can check out how to make a stamp in my Planner Stamp post!
I am going to include my affiliate links for your convenience. Amazon is where I purchased my Silhouette Cameo and my Silhouette Mint machines. Here are the links to them for more details and pricing.
- Silhouette Cameo – This link is to a page with different bundles. I just bought the bare bones bundle when I got my machine.
- Silhouette Mint
- StyleTechCraft Vinyl – This takes you to a website to get their vinyl products. The heat transfer vinyl is not theirs and I have not used it from this site. I am sure it is great but I have only purchased heat transfer vinyl from Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and WalMart.
