I was looking into getting a cameo and this was a great bundle. The machine can do soo many things. I use mine for vinyl cutting and paper crafting mostly but there are so many things u can use it for. Everything was packaged neAtly and carefully shipped amd arrived in perfect condition. I love my cameo and all the extra tools and things it came with.

I'm so happy with my Big Shot Pro machine! I have a place to put it, so size and weight is not an issue for me. I love that I can use any Sizzix (or other) products with it, no matter how small. The machine is quality built and the sliding tray is heavy duty, I can't imagine ever having to replace it. The only assembly required is putting the crank handle on with the included allen wrench ... it's a snap! I have since purchased other cutting plates (a pair of extended plates) to reduce wear on the large plates that come with the machine. Dies cut cleanly and perfectly, and the only problem with owning this machine is the never ending wanting of new dies! It also embosses paper very professionally using embossing folders, and the addition of the solo platform lets you cut spellbinder dies as well as emboss very nicely. If you want to save a few dollars and go with the smaller machine ... think again. Then when you find that wonderful big die to cut envelopes and you can't use it because of size restrictions ... well ... I'd just have to say "I told you so!" Enjoy. Thanks also to Overstock.com for prompt shipping, and the best price I could find as well.

I love this die! It gives you several options for flowers, and can cut several layers of papers at once.

These die cuts are exactly what I wanted. At first I had trouble getting them to cut all the way through the paper (I use a Cuttlebug), but I found that by rolling them back and forth through the Cuttlebug about 2 times they cut out beautifully. These die cuts are definitely worth ordering if you scrapbook or make cards.

Another great little die in the 2013 series of minis. This die is great for corners and small areas. Need to use a piece of wax paper before putting down your cardstock. The flowers can be layered with some work. Use spray E6000 glue and small glue dots that you cut in half. A wonderful additions to your dies collection.

I always prefer to buy in your online store because prices are low.

I love this die but it is very hard to cut. It has so many small and intricate pieces. The best way to cut this die is to put wax paper next to the die and then your cardstock. That way the small piees of paper do not stick in the die. If you don't do this, you will have a hard time with the die.

Got it for myself for Christmas. Have made several paper crafts and I also purchased the silhouette brand pen holder from Hobby Lobby so I could write in script on my Christmas tags. I haven't used the vinyl yet. But I have several projects on pinterest I plan to try out. I haven't used the $25 gift card either. The Silhoueete store has had free downloads every day until Christmas and they have a free download each week. Well worth the money.

1) Best price and service at OS, no questions! I have had it for exactly 2 weeks now. 2) Blade installation was really simple once I stopped reading the manual which doesn't simply tell you to pop it into the slot and turn the lock to the right. I saw you tube video and it was a snap. 3) Mat was way too tacky and manual doesn't say to remove tack by rubbing it on a low lint pillow or something. My first cut was good but the white residue left over by CS was a mess. Plus the blade setting was set according to the instructions but it gouged through the mat right off the bat. 4) Loading the mat was complete guess work, why no instructions on how to align? If I place it such that my 8x11 mat sits between the two white rollers, it seems to work. There are 3-4 guide lines on the machine front left but no markings on them, not sure what they are for! 5) There are markings for letter size and A4 size material placement on the mat. Align your top left and right corners of paper on the mat using them, they are hard to see but there. This will ensure perfect placement of paper on the mat. 6) Software installation is very easy and using it is intuitive. I haven't played with print/cut or other advanced features yet but will soon. 7) Free 50 designs will come through after software installation and you click on recent downloads (or is it import to library? sorry, can't remember). 8) I cut intricate vines/leaves on Coordinations textured cardstock, it came out very well but for one of the smaller sizes. I had put several sizes on one 8x11 CS to avoid wasting CS. 9) Tried a Moroccan lattice background (very detailed) on regular patterned scrapbook paper. The setting was at 3 and it didn't cut anything. I set it to 4 and then it did a beautiful job. So their blade setting recommendation is not an exact science, it's trial and error. 10) Machine is light and portable, make sure you have room on the table for the mat to go back and forth, without it being obstructed by your laptop or wall etc. 11) Silhouette should post some basic videos on their site to show basic placement of material on the mat, mat loading, blade installation etc. They are seriously lacking in that especially for new comers to die cutting world. The DVD that comes with it is not that much more useful especially regarding mat insertion. They just say align between the rollers but you could align exactly the left edge of the mat or you could load with half an inch off as they show...sigh! I have it figured out now with trial and error. 12)You can even cut .svg files WITHOUT designer edition of the software. Just use inkscape. Google for instructions. Of course you can trace and cut any jpeg too if you didn't know. Oh, and you can turn a regular cut file into a print and cut file. How cool is that? 13) Categorizing and tagging free designs is not well designed in studio software. Even the silhouette store bought designs have pnc (print and cut) on some files and not others! You can't change tags for those either. Free designs on the net can be easily tagged or categorized when you import them into your library from your HD. 14) I am already ordering a spare blade/mat because they will be consumables. Shop around for good price, enough price variation out there.

I haven't used this product yet. The picture on the die and the actual die is not the same. The picture shown makes you thnk that the dies cuts this way. It doesn't, each leaf, acorn, branch is a separate die on the die strip, and you piece or glue the pieces together on how you want it to look. I bought it because of the leaves and acorns and they are small. Some of them are only 1 inch, others are 1/2" x 3/4". Also you can put your paper on a certain die and you will only cut that die, instead of the whole strip. I am looking forward to using this.

I originally tried to purchase the newer Silhouette Cameo but at the time it wasn't available. So, after reading several reviews, I opted to purchase this machine with the bundle. Based on the reviews, there were only a few new features and there wasn't a new feature that I felt I had to have. So far, I've only used the Silhouette to cut paper items (cardstock, plain paper and glitter cardstock) but am looking forward to using it to cut fabric, vinyl and transfer paper. My daughter and her friend are going to make customized t-shirts. I have used the software to create my own designs, have downloaded designs, and even scanned a design and then had the Silhouette cut it out. The software can be a bit quirky at first but once you use it for a while, you get used to it. I would definitely recommend the Silhouette Cameo. I'm already finding ways to use it other than for scrapbookings. I like the fact that I can choose my paper and customize my designs.

Wanted an embosser and almost bought the Cuttlebug. Went on YouTube to see different machines and decided on this one. I wanted more options than the small ones...you just never know. This works really well. Heavy....HEAVY. Not something you cart around. But, that is what makes it work well. You do need to get more shims and whatnot to fit all your embossing folders and die cutters. I tried using stacked 12" x 12" paper but that compresses and does not work. You need the shims made for this machine so just get them. Easier. I use Cuttlebug folders and some others easily and that Cuttlebug green and clear plastic embossing plates...but those things do not turn out well.....ever. They leave a dent in the paper where the edge of the small plate is. Nice you can open your paper and emboss to the edge of a 5" x 7" paper...or emboss and cut later. Some shims are very thin...and you will use them. Just a small bit of extra pressure can change everything. Get the other shims...and while you are at it, another rubber mat and clear plastic top. Made wedding invitations and everything else that goes with a wedding with this machine and it all turned out beautifully. OH...be sure to put the folded end of the embossing folder toward the rollers and not sideways or upside down. If you do, the plastic folder tabs will break. The folded end must go in first. Not a problem. You will love it.

I love using this die because the foam included helps to tear off the paper from the die. And the result of cutting is very very nice!

I have had a Sizzix Big Shot for 5 years until the handle broke completely off. I had to purchase a new one. This machine can use all of the regular, large and Sizzlits dies, and embossing folders also other manufacturers thin metal dies and other manufacturers embossing folders. I find it to be very useful since it can take so many different types of paper crafting dies, etc.

I really like these nesties dies. I like how quick I can pull them out and cut what I need. It's much faster than using my electronic cutter, when I only have 1 or 2 cuts to make. The only issue I have is that I have to put the cutting side of the die facing up so it's kind of hard to place my image centered. I have to tape the die in place on the paper to be sure it doesn't shift. Sometimes I forget to place it cut side up so my big shot tray is getting kind of cut up. Not really a good thing, but that's my own fault. I love that I get 6 cutting circles for such a good price.

I have had my machine for about 2 weeks now. I love it and I havent even discovered everything I can do with it. I recommend watching some of the beginner tutorials and test cutting some plain paper before putting any expensive vinyl in the machine. I did buy the upgrade for the software and afterward found there is a lot you can do with the standard version so I would recommend starting with that one before automatically upgrading.

Here's what I loved about the Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine: - The touch screen was very responsive and easy to use. It's sleek, pretty, and had zero issues. The correct menu pops up when you need it with a few choices. - It's so light! Easy to transport to different areas or to take to a crafting retreat. - Paper peels easily off of the cutting mat and left very little residue after a few uses. - The crosscut tool allows you to make an even edge off the back of the paper as it comes out of the Cameo. - The Silhouette Studio (software for designing your cuts) is very easy to use, navigate, and create. - Excellent cut quality. Here's what I'm not crazy about: - It's louder than I expected when making a cut. - Adjusting the blade is a bit futzy. The Silhouette Studio tells you what your blade depth needs to be based on the kind of paper in your machine, which is great! BUT changing it requires taking out the blade and a special tool to adjust the depth. - The mat leaves a slight adhesive feel to the back of the first images you cut. Which could be a good thing if you want them to be sticky, but not so great if you're using the paper as a card and don't want the sticky feel all over the entire card. How I feel the Silhouette Cameo compares with the Cricut Explore: - Honestly, it's kind of like an Apple vs. Android. Both products do essentially the same thing, but people will prefer one user interface over the other. Aesthetically they look different (both the actual machine and the design studios) - I prefer the Cricut subscription service when it comes to images. Cricut charges a flat $9.99 fee per month to let you use over 20,000 images. You don't OWN them, but you can use them. You can certainly buy them if you want to keep them and ditch the subscription, but there are SO MANY images included, I can't see why you wouldn't just use the $9.99 for the sheer variety of images. - How the Silhouette subscription service works is a bit more complicated, so you'll definitely want to check that out. Basically, you pay a fee per month and get a certain amount of store credit to spend. Which means you'll own the images when you no longer pay the monthly fee, but you still have to pay for them on top of the subscription fee. If you pay more per month, you get more credit, so you'll technically get SOME for free. Like I said, it's complicated. BUT there are some really great designs that you can browse even without any subscription and buy a la carte. They have lots of fun bags, boxes, and other really fun stuff! Overall, if you've never used a Silhouette or a Cricut, watch some videos to see which you prefer. Both machines do an excellent job of cutting and allowing you to get all creative and crafty. The interfaces are a bit different on the machine and with the design software, so look into that as well. If you're debating on whether or not to get the Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine as your main electronic cutter, it's a great choice! Lightweight, quick to set up and easy to use! Plug it in and get your craft on!

Works well in my cuttlebug machine for both cutting and embossing stackable shapes. To emboss in a cuttlebug you'll need the wizard's embossing mat (or a rubber sheet.) Buy with the classic (regular shape hearts) so you have a perfect layered image. Makes great valentines day and romantic theme greeting cards. Considering how much money all these shapes would cost in paper punches, and comparing this to other sites, this Overstock deal is great. The largest scallop Heart is about 4.5" wide x 4.25" tall and the smallest is 1 & 1/8" wide x 1" tall at their widest points. Happy Crafting!

6 separate dies from long stem with many leaves to single leaf. All beautiful. 3 inches max down to 1 inch. Cuts perfectly on Cuttlebug, certainly will on other roller machines.Buying more for gifts. Die cut was hard to get out of the die until someone showed me tiny holes in the design through which to push the paper out.

love this machine..but this is my second one. my first one broke...I had a millimeter (literally a paper thin) too much paper..was in a hurry and bam...broke. I loved it enough to buy another..but would not buy another if it happens again. The crank ones are more forgiving.
