So…I’ve been promising many of you that I would start making some videos with my Silhouette Cameo-
Ooooh…before I forget– some of you have also asked me–what is a Cameo?
Well, Silhouette has been around awhile–with their SD machine- but, just this last fall (we are talking LATE October/Early November) they came out with a re-vamped machine that can cut 12×12 which was never possible with their SD machine. It does not use cartridges- only files and software. You can use their free software OR you can use Make the Cut or SCAL. (I am sure you’ve heard that crazy little term floating around…SVG….it can cut those too!)
Anyway- this isn’t a traditional video of the project, but it does give you a look at the Silhouette software. And, I promise my next video will have me working with the actual machine!
Oh….and ps the Cameo program it is free for anyone- even if you don’t have the machine yet but want to look around. 🙂 Here’s a link to download it if you want to see how it works- it is Mac and Pc compatible. And, they have their own little library of files where pretty much everything is 99 cents.
So here’s a little peek at the program.
After- that I plugged it into my computer, loaded my paper and clicked cut on my screen. 🙂
