My new Silhouette Cameo came in on Thursday and I immediately put it to good use making crafty stuff for the house. The first thing I made was a vinyl "welcome" sign for my front door. So, my front door that used to look like this:
Now looks like this today:
I'm so pleased with the way the machine works and the way the sign came out. If only I could learn how to attach things in a straight line, sigh. Aldo was very quick to point out how crooked the lettering was, but it really doesn't bother me all that much, yet. :) I have a feeling I'll be using this machine a whole lot more than my Cricut. While my Cricut sat unused on a shelf, this new Cameo is sitting right on my desk within easy reach and readily attached to my computer.
I painted the front door last Saturday using some left over paint from another project. I was expecting it to be a more burgundy red, but was pleasantly surprised by the pretty, deep orange it reflects in the sun. I think it works with the brick. Now the only think left to do is paint the wood trim white and add some Thanksgiving decor to our tiny entryway.
I have a couple of cards that I made this week, I'll try to take pictures and post them later on in the week.
Have a great weekend!!
