[Cameo] Getting to Know My Cameo

I cut a few more things the other day, just to see how it would go. I had heard it was better at intricate designs.

I thought the lace pennant I download seemed like a good place to start for detail. This is actually the back side, because it shows more detail. The pennant came with 2 images actually, but it was super easy to delete the one I didn't want (ungroup, select the one you don't want, and then delete). 

This DEFINITELY cut better than the Cricut. Granted, it was a brand new blade and a brand new mat, so I'm not sure if it's an entirely fair fight. But in my experience, this was better. 

Here's the front of the pennant. I was already using some pretty Halloween paper for another project, so I figured I just it cut it out of this. Lesson learned: don't do intricate designs on intricately designed paper. It just looks too busy. 

And TADA, here's my Cameo. And it has a new control panel overlay. This is one of the included images. My favorite color is green and holiday is Halloween, so I figured I'd use this paper for it. While the design looks bad on the pennant, it looks great on my Cameo. And best part: should I want to replace's just cardstock. It's sticking around on it pretty good without anything other than clever shapes to keep it in place.

  1. Looks like fun. I've been dreaming about all the things I could create with a Cameo. Possibilities are endless.
