Getting Crafty with the Cameo Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Getting’ Crafty with the Cameo blog hop! You should be arriving from Lezlye, if not then I recommend you start the hop with our hostess Kristy and here is her site:Kristy Scraptastical Kreations We’re all so happy to have you hopping along with us, so grab a drink and sit back and enjoy. There is a great line up with some amazingly talented ladies that are super excited to share their projects with you using their Silhouette Cameo. =))

Since I am the last person on this great blog hop, i'm definitely sure you know what to do to win the AWESOME prizes that are up for grabs, make sure you comment and follow each blog and visit the companies' pages! My internet is being extremely slow so I can't post them up but Kristy has them all up :)

Now for MY prize! I haven't had a giveaway of my own in quite awhile and seeing how close i am to 800 followers, once I reach that I will have a giveaway for your choice of either a $10 gift card to Michaels or $10 Silhouette credit depending on if you own a Silhouette machine or not. Due to customs and all, my giveaway is only open to those in the US or Canada. Thanks! :))

PHEW!! Now that THAT is out of the way, on to my project! :) Alright, as all of you know I'm a die hard Cricut lover but when the Silhouette Cameo came out, I just HAD to have it. The fact that it could cut out AROUND Disney shapes (or any shape for that matter) was mostly what appealed to me. You can find my post with Disney Princess cut outs HERE!

My favorite feature is definitely the Silhouette store, the fact that you can buy a membership for $19 a month and get $150 in credit each month with shapes only being $.99? AWESOME! Let's just say, I haven't bought a Cricut cartridge in awhile ;) lol

Oh and have I told you how HANDY the Silhouette store is when you are in a HURRY? And by hurry I mean, running out the door with 3 kids under the age of 7, with 5 bags and then realizing you haven't made or bought a birthday card for the birthday boy. What to do? You go to the Silhouette store and download a printable card and print it out and DONE! Yup, TRUE STORY. Happened to me today! :)

Isn't the card adorable? I thought it went great with the gift!

I made this ADORABLE door hanger for my son who is a hard core Mario fan using the door hanger cut out from Silhouette and printing and cutting around a jpeg image for Mario!

One last project :) I am a scrapbooker at heart (that really is all I do with my machines besides home decor) so another favorite feature of my Cameo is that I can now outline ANY word or image and make it into a shadow! Not only that, but I can cut out any font on my computer. YAY! :) I made this layout with a background from the silhouette store as well as the Computer Nerds title from there as well. Aren't my babies adorable AND oh so technologically savvy?? Yeah... :)

If you are interested in seeing another project i've made with my Cameo, you can find my tissue boxHERE!

Thank you guys SO much for hopping along with us! We had a blast working on these projects and hopefully inspired some of you! :))
