Trying to win a Silhouette Cameo

Totally blatant title there.
I have wanted one of these for quite awhile so I'm doing all I can to try and win it.
What is a Silhouette Cameo you ask? Check out this video on YouTube

I bought a Cricut a couple years ago and it has sat mostly unused since. I borrowed several cartridges from a friend once and was able to do some pretty neat things for a mini album about our trip to Maui in 2010 but that was the most it was used. Every now and then I cut a title for a layout but since I only have the one cartridge and buying more is pretty prohibitive due to the cost of each cartridge, it has become a dust gatherer.

So what do I think makes this better than my Cricut? First off, it cuts 12" x 12" paper!! This means you can cut an image into a piece of card stock and use the whole thing on your layout. Hello lacy back grounds! Awesome!! It can cut any graphic from your computer. That My Digital Studio that languishes on my laptop may actually get used! I can use my Stampin' Up! images (especially their alphabets) and create gorgeous hybrid layouts.

So, if you want to try and win one too (and if you do, you'll have to put up with me coming over to "share" it with you!) just go here and enter. Good luck to you. Good luck to me!


  1. I don't have a Cameo yet but I DO have a Silhouette SD! and I LOVE it! Nothing could be better except maybe the CAMEO! Hope you get one soon because you will enjoy it so much! Just be careful it gets addicting! Oh by the way...I am new follower of your blog. Would love for you to come by mine. It's new and I am new to the blogging world, but I'm getting there! Would love to have you follow me too!

  2. I just found your blog and was wondering if you got a cameo and if you happened to figure out how to cut the my digital studio images with it??
