The Silhouette CAMEO is an electronic cutting machine for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 12" wide and 10 feet long.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It was very easy to learn to use, although I already knew a little about designing, because I used to make decals professionally. But there are a ton of useful and very helpful youtube tutorials that will walk you through step by step.
I will add a few pictures of some things I've done with the silhouette. Unfortunately I never take pictures so I don't have a lot. I made the two shirts, the valentines cards, the banners and lettering on the hot air balloon.
The silhouette store has tons of adorable fonts and designs, but you can also copy just about any image you find on google or pinterest.
I rely greatly on customer reviews when I am looking to purchase an item, and I know others do too, so I try to be as thorough and honest in giving it as possible. I put a lot of thought into my review and appreciate feedback, so if you have found my review helpful, please take a moment to click on "yes” to let me know. Thanks so much for reading and feel free to ask me any questions! :)
The bundle came in 2 days (thanks Prime!) and included everything that was listed. One thing worth mentioning is that it says you get a 1 month trial to the design store - when I put the code in for that, it actually gave me a $25 credit for the design store. I don't know if it expires in a month or what, but there are so many designs to choose from (some as low as 50 cents on clearance) that I'm having a hard time deciding what to use the credits on! The machine itself cuts like a dream, and makes more precise cuts than my Cricut ever did, even with brand new blades. I am in love with the fact that you just choose what material you're cutting (vinyl, shirt vinyl, plain paper, cardstock, etc) and the progam tells you what to set the blade to (no more guesswork!) and automatically adjusts the speed and pressure for you. So easy... The machine is loud when it cuts, and at first made me concerned that something was wrong with it. It kinda has a grinding sound to it. I looked on youtube at other Cameo owners and watched some videos and noticed theirs all sounded the same, so I'm no longer concerned about that. It just took me by surprise, not being used to it.
Overall, I am in love with this machine and it's an amazing deal for everything you get with it. I don't know why I waited so long to upgrade. I highly recommend it.
The silhouette cameo is wonderful. I have had it for 9 months now and I just love it. I have been able to make so many really cool, personal gifts. I have mostly worked with vinyl and the cameo handles that beautifully. I have found it to be pretty user friendly and had no problems getting started. I did watch a lot of youtube instructional videos while waiting for my new toy to arrive and I think that was very helpful.
I need to change the cutting blade every month and the cutting mat probably every 2-3 months but I use my cameo a lot (Amazon Subscribe & Save has been nice for that). I upgraded and bought the Designer Edition Software and have found that helpful. I also bought the 12x24 mat and use that a lot especially with larger vinyl projects. Getting this machine and all the accessories and supplies has been quite the investment but I really cannot imagine life without it anymore. I absolutely love this machine and the creative freedom that it provides.
