I LOVE my Silhouette Cameo!!! It's so versatile. You can print and cut, use markers to draw, use different file formats and create your own designs. I really enjoy creating my own designs an altering the ones I purchase. The cameo cuts perfect circles and more cleanly and smoothly than the Cricut. If you want to take a peek at what I've been creating with my Cameo you can visit my blog HERE. or you can click HERE to see just my Silhouette Cameo projects.

I don't think you'll regret your hubby buying it for you. I still LOVE my machine and I've had it since Christmas. Congrats!!!

I've heard that the software is better and the cut is a bit better too. I don't have anything to compare it to but so far I think it's pretty swell! :P

Thanks, Julie. I've got to do some research on these types of machines. I have an Expression but it would be nice to be able to cut whatever I want.

I hope you enjoy your Cameo!

I have the (blue) Wishblade from many years ago and the upgraded Create and Cut software. Can someone familiar with it and the Silhouette tell me how they compare? I have considered getting one but wondering if there are any bog differences other than the cutting media size.

I've been doing a lot of homework comparing machines and I'm leaning strongly toward getting the Gazelle (BossKut).

There seems to be a substantial difference between the Silhouette and the Gazelle, one difference being that the Silhouette is reported to not be able cut materials (think: thicker, heavier weight materials that DP or lightweight cardstock) that the Gazelle can cut.

I've read a lot of user questions and comments made about both machines on forums and by far those using the Silhouette sound like they have more problems using the machine than do Gazelle users.

I just got done watching all of 21 youtube tutorials uploaded by a BossKut rep on the Gazelle and the tutorials are wonderful: (this link will get you started on watching those):

Tami, I really don't know much about the cutters but I did have several people tell me that the Silhouette software is just far better than other ones out there - especially for non-designer types. I haven't upgraded to the designer software yet but probably will at some point. Lisa Hetrick knows about them and different machines, she might be able to answer your question!

Thanks, TheOtherMeg, I keep reading reviews on the machines, checking out blogs, checking out youtube videos...and all I've accomplished so far in making a decision is that I can't make a decision. LOL I've printed the comparison chart provided by Paperthreads.

I swear, for every "I LOVE this machine" comment I've read there's a "I've never had good luck with this machine" comment posted by someone else. So confusing!
