I ordered the Cameo from OMC early this AM, using the code PINK25. It worked and saved sixty some dollars! It's a pre-order and should ship around 3/5. For that discount, I can wait! Shipping was $5.00.

It's out for delivery today! I'm a little miffed with the Amazon seller though, it was supposed to be delivered yesterday...I'm going to contact them for a refund on my shipping since they didn't deliver as promised..

However.....I will be stalking the FedEx guy today

Glad to hear it's out for delivery today but I'd be a little miffed too. Don't scare the FedEx guy, he might run away with your box in hand! Just kidding!

Thanks for the info Shelly! It has arrived!!!! Now I'm off to play!!! I know it wasn't FedEx's fault, it was the shipper. Plus, there was no way I was going to get upset with someone who was delivering such precious goodies!!!

Melanie, the subscription is for a year. You can cancel early but then you'll be paying an early termination fee. If you bought a subscription today, then you'd have that amount taken out of your bank account/credit card (that you set up) every month on the 15th. Any left over credits from the month are good for an extra 30 days. If you don't use them within that period then you lose them.

I have the $150 credit subscription. I figured since I got it on sale, I won't have to be too picky on what I "buy" from the store. Some months I haven't used the full credit, other months I loved everything I saw and wished I had more. I've bought other files from other stores but honestly, you can't beat the price for 150 files per month. I'm pretty good at rationalization!

Buttons123, I didn't get an email either...saw it on the Silhouette Facebook page. Yay!

Sherialane, woohoo!!! Will you be home when it's delivered? So excited for you! Hope your Cricut sells quickly!

I have fallen madly in love with my Cameo. I am so patient in real life. My DH & I are known for our patience. My Silhouette SD broke last Summer. I was patient long enough. I am glad I paid an extra few dollars from Overstock and got my new Cameo in. I definitely think it was worth it.

This machine is so much quieter than the other Graphtec machines I have owned. I think it's quieter than my Cricut's. I wrote earlier the machine is loud. You can kind of scratch that one off your list. I still wouldn't put the machine next to the babies nursery.

I cut a 2.5" by 0.94 scallop border. The border came out to perfection. I work with miniatures a lot. Small detail cutting is very important to me.

I love the new mat functions. It's a lot easier to place your cuts. The old Silhouette was a bit of a guessing game when everything went in Silhouette Studio or even the old Robo software.

Love the new mat. Much better construction than the other mats I have owned for my Graphtec machines.

I am on the fence about getting rid of my Cricut's. I honestly do like them. I have a versatile cartridge library since I have been working with the Cricut for six years. Plus, I need a machine for heavy duty cutting. I have a BossKut Gazelle but the software is old. I will pay $240 to buy a new machine but won't pay $60 to upgrade the Gazelle software, ROFL. I know that is so silly. My third party software does not play nice on my Gazelle.

I can't edit my post. I guess I am off the fence about my Cricut's, lol. I am rearranging my die cutters since I got the Cameo in. With my art work now I think I will pack up my Cricut's. I don't think they are going to work with what I want to do in my art now. I need very detailed cutting. I am making things for my OOAK dolls. I am really happy with my new Cameo.

I also wanted to add that there was always a learning curve with the Graphtec cutters. One of the reason I became a Cricut user was you needed a Ph.D to run the Graphtec cutters back in the day.

I can honestly say I think the new Cameo's learning curve is very easy. Silhouette sent a detailed user manual. You can get started pretty quickly. I think it's just as easy to pick up as the Cricut.

I am done reviewing now, least for tonight, lol. I have to figure out what I should do with my Gazelle.

Hope everyone is enjoying their new "toys". I used the wineglass on a card I made today. I love the designs from the Silhouette store--there's such a great variety for every age!

birdielover, forgot to congratulate you on getting the Cameo, you got a great price for it! Like DeeAnn, I paid more for mine. I wanted to buy one when everyone else was sold out of it so I paid a little more so I wouldn't have to wait. I don't regret it one bit.

DeeAnn, I had to laugh at your "buying a new machine for $240 but not wanting to pay $60 for a software upgrade" because I've been there too. Gotta love the logic! What kind of things do you make for your OOAK dolls with the Cameo? I'd love to see a few things if you don't mind sharing some pictures. I do have another cutter (it's my heavy duty one) that I love too, but for different reasons. I love the Cameo for the detail it gives me...so much better than any other machine I've owned.

Melanie, waaahoo! Have fun shopping for all your new files to play with. Love their designers...and they have Hero Arts and Echo Park files! Btw, I see you're in the Philly area, my DH grew up there and we lived right over the bridge in Jersey for awhile. Missin' my Philly/Jersey peeps!

YIKES! I downloaded the free software and now I'm looking at the downloadable designs and I'm totally amazed at how many there are! I signed up for the 25 designs/month but I think I may have to rethink that! LOL!!

I can hardly wait for it to arrive!

I know when I got my subscription, if I paid it all at once I got an additional 5% off my price. I went with the lowest subscription level, as I have a Cricut with a pretty decent collection of cartridges. I'm pretty choosy about what I want from the Silhouette store and this has worked well for me. Love the Tuesday freebies! Also, check out Kerri Bradford designs, she offers freebies every now and then, too.

I am sloooowly getting my Flickr account ready to upload my doll pics. I was going to blog all my work. I realized I am better at Pinterest and Flickr sharing. I am going to be one of those girls who do all the fancy photo shoots of her dolls, lol.

I love to use fabric to make delicate laces for my dolls for their dresses. I also use some of the standard shapes for the dresses like birds for example. I wanted a tiny detail cutter so I could make different shapes for the eyes chips. I have been working with Printable fabric to make custom doll fabrics. My Cricut Imagine is amazing for this. I knew the Cameo would knock the Imagine out of the park for custom made fabrics. I am making simple draft patterns. I have a collection of the Mini Blythe's. I want to make all new wardrobes for them. I almost forgot I am making my own stencils. My DH found tattoo paper the other day. That has given me ideas.

I think it might be the Flickr Silhouette group. When I was looking through the galleries recently at Flicker one lady made beads on her Silhouette. Another lady is making custom made stuffies. There are two paper mache artist who are making jaw dropping figures.

I love my other cutters. Definitely the Silhouette is my art cutter. When my DH broke my Silhouette SD I was so lost without her. I really missed it.

My other cutters I am packing away a lot of them. I am keeping out my Imagine. I have really beautiful cartridges that I love to use on my Imagine. I am actually one of the few people in the world who love that machine, lol.

If you "shop" by designer, you will see that Hero Arts and Echo Park have a bunch of designs for the Cameo! I bought some intricate designs from Hero Arts and can't wait to give them a try...which will be today I'm also going to check out Echo Parks selection now that I have a bunch of credits to spend!!!

Now some designs I have looked at show a "p" symbol which seems to be something that I would have to print then cut?....I'm really new to this so I'm not sure how that works, but I'm sure I'll find out soon enough

Your right the "p" symbol means Print & Cut.

I'll have to look again at the Flickr group, the beads sound familiar to me. Amazing how creative everyone is! Your dolls sound like they're beautiful and so detailed. Can't wait to see them!

How did your DH break your SD? Does he craft as well? My DH is a drummer and I made him a vinyl band logo for his bass drum and rhinestoned part of the logo...but that's the extent of any "crafting" my husband does, lol. He asks me to make him things and I do it. I get to look like a genius, he gets customized items, and we're both good to go.

My DH does craft. He works with leather, stain glass, glass fusing, crochet, quilting, sewing, chain mail, jewelry. He doesn't die cut.

My DH fixes electronics as a side job. He has taken up fixing die cutters. A year ago half my craft room was destroyed. My die cutters were damaged. He was able to fix my Silhouette.

This past Summer my Silhouette started having problems. My DH found the problem but when he was fixing it the Silhouette got dropped by accident. It just shattered everywhere. He felt terrible.

I think that is so sweet about your DH. I made my DH a decal for his Xbox. I made him a spider decal for his computer. My DS was over the other day raving about that spider. He thought that was the coolest thing ever.

I finally caved in and bought me a Cameo from Amazon. I have Prime so it was $269 with free shipping, scheduled to arrive Wed.! Is the software upgrade downloadable or do I have to order a CD?

I found the answer while "shopping" on the Silhouette site! Print on your printer, then feed into the Cameo for it to cut!!! How flippin Awesome is this thing!!

Katarina,
I think you're about 2 hours away from me......so if you see 2 eyeballs peering into one of your windows, that would be me the ~~stalker~~ err I mean admirer....I absolutely LOVE your creations!!

Another question here {no kidding} since the mat is super sticky, how are you guys removing intricate cuts from it without ruining the piece?

TIA!

Hugs,
Melanie

I bend/curl the mat a little while pulling/picking it up. It helps to keep the die cuts from curling up as well!

Oh btw anyone who still hasn't bought the cameo yet the coupon at OMC is working. It doesn't exclude the cameo. You can get it for $215!

I remove the paper around the cut first. I am one who also bends the mat a little too. I use two different spatulas to remove the cut. I have a Slice Spatula and a thin artist palette spatula. My artist spatula has a bit more bend so it's perfect for delicate cuts. I remove slowly. I also bend the mat a little when removing the cut. I have a small awl I use to poke out the holes in the detailed lace doily type cuts.

I have a regular awl that I use. It's my fabric awl so it has a thick handle. Some of those doilies take forever to poke the holes out of. My fabric awl was hurting my hands.

I bought this: Sizzix eclips Accessory - Die Pick | Sizzix.com

I guess Tim H has one for his Alterations line too. Same style different color. I think both of these tools would be wonderful for the manual doily dies too.

I use an old gift card to scrape my mat clean of excess paper debris. Since I need style with my tools my gift card is NeoPets.
