guess who’s a guest panelist on

Last week I had a wonderful opportunity to chat with the girls — and Izzy :) — at What a great group of people! We just had a great time! And it was such fun talking about what we each love about manual die cutters and digital cutters and why ‘this’ one or ‘that’ one works for each of us.

Thanks for asking me to come sit at your round table guys!

    I got a Silhouette about 5 years ago for my birthday. I had a Cricut, and I have never touched it since. I also now have the Cameo, and love, love, love it. I made about 175 birthday, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, etc. cards this year, and it has more than paid for itself. I used my Cameo to make every single card, and bought almost no embellishments from the craft store. I make all my lettering, and even print some of the paper from my library. I use a lot of the Looney Tunes print and cut images, especially for the kids. I cannot image the work that would be involved if all I had was a die cut machine to use. The Cameo saves time and money. Everything I need is right in front of me on my computer, to make as big or small as I need. I grid my worksheet, and layout all my cards right on my computer screen, so that I know exactly how each shape will fit, and how it will look before I cut anything. I pick out the paper/s I will use for the shapes, place them on my mat, and within a matter of a couple of minutes I have everything cut and ready for my project. I love scrapping and using the 12 x 12 shapes that cover the entire 12 x12 sheet of cardstock. They are so beautiful. I embellish plain gift bags with shapes that coordinate with the card or the gift. I have made several framed pieces to give as wedding, birthday, or housewarming gifts.
    Do I know everything about my Cameo and how to use every function? NO, but I cannot imagine doing without it. Would I ever go back to a diecut machine with all those dies to keep up with? NO WAY. Would I spend $50 again on a cartridge that I only want a couple of the shapes? NO WAY. I am a Cameo girl through and through. In my opinion, every serious craftier needs a Cameo.
