Yes you will be pleased to know that there really will be one freebie a day for the whole month of November as all but the last one are made and uploaded so I can now move on to something else…. I am really pleased with the kit and I think it will be awesome when altogether, so do keep checking back here every day until 30 November.
Todays you can find here…. it is a bow and I have used it for several things already…. probably one of the neatest bows I have ever tied too…. lol
I have had my eye on the Cameo Silhouette for about 6 weeks or more and was very tempted to go to the NECC in Birmingham a few weeks ago just to see one (not to buy one of course… lol), but I wasn’t sure how much different it would be to my normal size silhouette which I tend to use for all my cutting now. It sat in the cupboard for about 3 years, then last Christmas I won a $25 download card for their store and so dug out the silhouette again so I could download the designs and cut them, and it has been my favourite since, the only thing that bothers me is that it doesn’t quite cut out the thickness of card I use and if I do 2 cuts it never lines up properly, so I have to stick to bigger designs which are easier to finish cutting out. Some friends have recently bought the cameo and they say it cuts much thicker card aswell as being a proper 12″ cut and so that sold it for me. About 3 weeks ago whilst in Tesco buying my boys some cards for Christmas to give to their friends I saw some Christmas Cards that I wanted to make. They were black and gold…. gold glitter card with a black overlay of christmas ornaments, Merry Christmas and snowflakes and I thought they would be easy to make on my silhouette, but then reality sunk in and I realised that my machine would not cut my black card as nicely as that and it would take lots of time to finish the cutting out. When I heard about the cameo the other day I realised it would be so easy to make these cards….. unfortunately DH wasn’t so impressed with my idea and despite very big, you cannot ignore these, hints he thinks I should wait until Christmas for it…. even when I photoshopped this picture this morning and sent it to him via email, he chose to ignore it and hasn’t even mentioned the picture….
So I guess I will have to wait or sell some of my stuff to buy it now…… If any of you have anything to say about the machine either good or bad please leave me a comment…. thank you.
Don’t forget to call back tomorrow for another freebie giveaway… take care everyone…
