Hello! Silhouette Cameo...

Hope everyone having a good evening so far! Well I finally bought a Silhouette Cameo last Tuesday from For a good price it was $249.00 the best part was it was free shipping and handling. I was surprise it came to my house by Friday morning. I been playing around with all weekend along. I now know it was a good investment for me. But I'm really enjoying the machine so far. I just have to buy a extra matte and blade and some tools to help get it off the matte. I just might go to Wal-Mart and get the circut tools. They are basically  just a name brand and different colors on it.

Anyways I decided to show the few things I cut with the Silhouette Cameo. I even use Tim Holtz distress ink and some stamps for some of them. Here, what I been doing the last few days.

The letters and leafs or vines I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
I use my black zig fine point to go along the edges of the letters
To make them more interesting and to make them pop out a little.
This is going in my first page of my grandmother family album.

All four of the leafs were distress with some new stamps I bought.

The circle I use Walnut stain to distress it and use another one of my stamps.
(Tim Holtz Visual Artistry) Collection Stampers Anonymoes

The tage I use Peeled Paint distress ink.
I also use anoter one of Tim Holtz stamps from the same collection.



  1. These are all fantastic creations Justie. You are certainly having a ball with your Cameo. I especially like the distressed and stamped leaves. Inspired to combine birds and leaves, I love the uniqueness of the idea. Can't wait to see more :) Pxx

    1. Thanks yeah the birds on the leafs were a idea I had. When I was trying to figure out what to do with them. I decided to try it out and I like how it turned out. :)
