My Cameo is HERE

Update in the PM: if you haven't heard, the Cameo is on sale (again) on OMC (Oh my Crafts........) for 25% off, free shipping which brings it down to about $203...........if you are thinking about it and want to get your own holiday present.....go for it............I've seen a few people who have provided nice reviews on this machine (thankg oodness).

Look what the UPS Man brought me today.............whoaaa...................it finally arrived!!!!
It's my Silhouette Cameo..............Yippee...........Yippee.....Yipee......even the box is gorgeous! Hey, what's that cool green 3D box? I'm going to have to find that cut file in the Silhouette Store.
Look at my Cameo next to my Expression........Cameo is much more sleek and cool. Ooops, I forgot to put a big RED BOW on it - it's my Christmas present to me!!!! Everyone should have one!!!

Here's a side view - they are both the same length but there is a height difference...........

Hmmm...............I am itching to get my red spray can out to glam it up......well, maybe I will wait a bit before I do a red color make-over...........am not brave enough yet to do it.

I can't wait to start cutting my SVG cut files using the Silhouette Cameo. I've updated my SCAL 2 (Sure Cuts a Lot program) to SCAL3 to use the Cameo and it is now ready to go................testing to start!!! Have you gotten your Silhouette Cameo yet? So far, I am not disappointed. It is very exciting that I can put away my chunky Expression................

have fun! keep us posted on your progress with your new toy - I think when I buy an electronic cutting machine, this is the one I want.

I can't wait to see you use this machine... I've been thinking about getting this too, maybe you will convince me. :)

Have you been using just your cricut machine to cut your SVG files? That's all I have right now.

Hi Patti,
STILL have not loaded my SCAL software. Heard that when you upgrade your Cricut software on-line you can no longer use your SCAL software..do you know is this true? I'm thinking I might just look into the Cameo...as I recall you do not have to use cartridges???
Paper Hugs,

I got one too, but still waiting for it to arrive! I am keeping my SCAL 2 for my Cricut. Do I really need SCAL 3 for the Cameo?
