I am impressed......are you?

I think I am in love.  In love with my new Silhouette Cameo that is. 
I have not had much time to play with it but the three projects I have done impressed me greatly.  The first picture is a file from http://www.birdscards.com/pennants-10/ cut with the Cricut Expressions.  The few squares that are out of the pendant had to be cut with an exacto knife. 
The second picture is cut from the same file with the Silhouette Cameo.  Also used was the gorgeous linen cardstock from a lovely blogging friend, Chrissy at http://chrissys4cards.blogspot.com/.  The Cameo cut beautifully and left only a couple little pieces but they will just flick off.  I only left them so you could see the differences.
Many thanks go to my beautiful friend, Myoriah, for all her support.  Her site is here http://craftingfrugalway.blogspot.com/
I am so impressed and can hardly wait to try some more intricate cuts. 
Have a Blessed day.

Mryna, it's just beautiful!!! I've got to get back to playing with my Silhouette again soon too! I'm also impressed with the few projects I did!

Hugs, my friend!

The Silhouette has always impressed me. I'm so glad that you got the chance to play with it. I'm really glad that your Cameo is not still sitting in the box.

Myrna, I have had my eyeballs on these cuts. I just haven't done them yet and thrilled to see that you did so I could enjoy and ahhhhhh over. Did I forget you bought a cameo? Congrats and you are going to love all the extra things you can do.

Very impressed indeed! The Cameo has been on my watch list for a while now but I have so much $ invested in Cricut cartridges. I am NOT computer literate so I am very nervous about investing in the Cameo. I have watched videos about it but again, some of the info I just don't understand. Anyway, enjoy your new toy.

I have heard a few people complain that their cricut wasn't cutting cleanly any more, but I have to wonder if maybe it's just that the blade needs to be replaced.

I don't have an electric cutter, but your cards really make me want one!

Wow, your Silhouette Cameo is impressive. Love that piece that you cut.
