  • This machine is awesome.
    Verified Purchase

    I upgraded from the Silhouette SD that I have been using for the last 3 yrs. I liked that one but felt I needed the Cameo because of the size of the cutting pad. I can get more done with this size. I use it for scrapbooking, greeting card making, and vinyl bottle decorating. I love this over all the other die cutting machines I have purchased in the past.

  • Excellent, this is the best price I found
    Verified Purchase

    LOVE this machine - the software is easy to learn if you are a little computer savvy. Tip: use their Silhouette brand replacement mats, don't try to substitute other brands as the thicknesses and grid alignment are different. This is the best price I found after shopping all over. Original product in original box, not remanufactured. This is the machine to get if you don't want to be tied to pattern cards, and instead want to download or create your own designs. The included gift cards worked perfectly.

    I have a XXXXXX and if I had it to do over again, I would have just bought the silhouette. The XXXXXXX is convenient if you need something easy and quick because you don't need the computer started up, but that only works IF you have the cartridge you need. The Silhouette will save me money in the long run because I don't have to buy anymore cartridges!! If you like to make cute gift tags, party plan, or scrapbook. BUY THIS!!!

  • Nice Machine
    Verified Purchase

    I own both the silhouette and the cricut and prefer the silhouette to the cricut for a number of reasons. The biggest reason is that I do not need to buy cartridges. I like silhouettes software, I can create and cut my own images. Never had any issues with updates. Had held up better than the cricut. I had to have my cricut replaced after a few uses. Unlike cricut, they don't offer "free" technology (like the wifi), and then not deliver. I use my cricut and the cricut machine I have now is working fine, but the silhouette is my everyday go to machine.

  • I LOVE this machine!!!

    I am in LOVE with my Silhouette Cameo! I bought my machine in March of this year along with the software upgrade to the Design Studio, which I HIGHLY recommend. I have been able to make so many cool things with this machine and each time I use it I figure out more and more about it and what it can do. I recommend buying a 2nd cutting mat and a replacement blade. You will also want some tools like the spatula thingy if you are going to be cutting out intricate vinyl. So far, I have cut fabric, paper, adhesive vinyl, and heat press vinyl. I made some cheerleading hairbows and used the heatpress vinyl to iron on shapes and sayings, the girls loved them! I have also purchased the rhinestone starter kit and made a few rhinestone templates. It was VERY easy to do this. Keep your cutting mat clean is a must. Wipe it down with a baby wipe after each use to help it stay tacky longer. Also, keep the paper cover that comes on it and replace it on the mat after each use to keep dust and such from landing on it. I didn't realize the importance of that tackiness and was trying to cut some hologram spandex and it just wouldn't cut right. I thought it was the blade that was too dull, change it, nope. Found my mat wasn't sticky enough so the fabric wasn't staying in place. Overall this is a fabulous product, way better than it's competitior that uses cartridges. I highly recommend this if you are in the market for a die cutting machine!

    I own a small Cricut but after some research decided to go with the Silhouette Cameo and am so happy I did. As with any new program there is a learning curve to the program. The CD with directions is more of a quick start view, you may need to go to You Tube and view videos for more directions.

  • Awesome! Get it!

    Although this machine is more expensive than a Cricut, don't even think twice. It is so totally superior. I have used a Cricut Expression many times and was always frustrated with the quality of the cuts (paper tearing, etc), and struggled to get things sized the way I wanted. It was just so clumsy and annoying to use. So much wasted paper. The Cameo is so much simpler and smarter. It's controlled only through the computer, so you're seeing exactly what your cuts will look like before you execute. The software asks what type of media you are cutting and recommends what setting to use - no guesswork!! The cuts are clean. The mat is not too sticky - it's perfect (I have only cut cardstock so far). The software is pretty easy to figure out. I had it up and running within 15 minutes. The online image library is great - I found what I was specifically looking for, a tiny elephant shape to put on cupcake toppers for a baby shower. Downloading images is super quick and easy. I mainly use it to make cupcake wrappers for my cake business. Love it!!!

  • Super cuts (and I don't mean haircuts)!
    Verified Purchase

    I love my Cameo. It cuts so percisely and cleanly you have a wonderful finished item. It is very easy to use and has so many options to choose from. I feel that the instruction booklet could be more inclusive for users that are not as experienced with computers. However it is a great machine that allows you to make loads of fun projects.

    This is a must have for papercrafters, quilters and people who work with vinyl. It is easy to use, fun and everything I have been looking for in a diecut machine! The cutting is very precise and very detailed. Love it!

  • Love my Silhouette Cameo
    Verified Purchase

    I really love my Silhouette Cameo. It is a very versatile cutter that has added new dimensions to my card making. It can cut very delicate shapes and allows me to design my own die cuts from my stamps and clip art available on the computer. It's print and cut feature is great. There are abundant resources available on the computer to teach techniques you can use with the Cameo. Silhouette America has a great store for buying digital die cuts at a very reasonable price.

  • Best on the Market
    Verified Purchase

    There is so much you can do with this machine! It goes far beyond the typical scrap booking community. You can cut fabric (makes exact appliques), vinyl, and icing sheets for edible decorating! A word of caution...if you are not an experienced computer user, you will become frustrated with this. A better choice if this describes you would be the Grand Calibur from Spellbinders. It's all manual power.

  • Love My Silhouette
    Verified Purchase

    I love my silhouette. The first day I had it was a lot of trial and error and a few more days of playing with all of the cutting settings to decide what I like best.. For detail work I found that setting the blade to one number higher then slowing the speed and cutting twice really works well. I have made tons of things with it already. Well worth the money spent on it.
