Crafting with my Cameo

Mornin hens!  Today I thought I'd share some of my craft projects I've done with my Silhouette Cameo.  Honestly, I've never bought a crafting tool as versatile as this one is.  No special tools or extra things to buy, just one machine and my computer.  Granted, you do purchase the images, but only the ones you want and for .99 cents, who can beat that?  Once you have the image, you can re-size to whatever size you need and use it over and over again (for personal use of course). And if you subscribe to the Silhouette store, you can get the images for a reduced price.  Woo-hoo! As for the lettering that you see me use a lot, I did not purchase those.  The Silhouette Cameo will cut any font you have on your computer. Great right? Of course from the multitude of wedding photos I've shown you, you know this machine got a "work out" during the wedding, but believe it or not, I haven't shown you everything yet!  LOL!  Here are a few other items I made....

I made insulated water glasses for each of the girls in the wedding party.  I don't know why, but I didn't take photos of them all.  Duh! This one was for the wedding planner.  Her favorite colors are pink and black.  The other girls' cups were done in whatever color vinyl that matched their dresses.  Jessica's was done in white or course, mine in brown, and so on.  The polka dots were in peach, tan and cream to match the colors of the wedding and each dress design was a little different depending on what style dress they wore. Jessica gave these to the girls on the day of the wedding.

I also made shirts for the girls to wear for the bachelorette party.  Jessica and her friends went to Disney World for the weekend.  Jessica wore her Minnie Mouse bridal veil and they each wore their matching shirts that read, "Bride & Co".  I cut the letters and ring design from iron on transfer paper using my Silhouette Cameo, and then ironed it on each shirt. The girls LOVED them!

I even made my gift tags last Christmas using my Silhouette Cameo.  I cut the shape and snowflake design from Kraft CS and then sponged some distress ink around the edges of each one. I made several with a Christmas tree design too but failed to snap a picture of those. Super simple and it looked so cute with my Kraft Christmas boxes and handmade bows. 

I saw this idea on Pinterest but decided to make it even cuter by using this adorable Santa face I found in the Silhouette store.  I peeled the labels off of the Germ-X bottles and made sure all the glue was removed.  Then I cut the pieces from different colors of adhesive vinyl and adhered them onto each bottle and spelled "Santa-tizer" for the back of each.  LOL!  I finished with a little bow tied with red and green ribbon, and placed them in everyone's stocking for Christmas.  Cute huh?  These are just a few of the bazillion ideas out there that can be done with this AWESOME tool!  I can't tell you how much I LOVE this thing, but if you're on the edge about whether to buy it, DO it!  You won't be sorry.  Have a great day!
