Earlier this year, my mother purchased the Silhouette Cameo 3 as a Christmas present for me. I have since fallen in love with crafting and slowly turning my creations into a career. But, there are a few things that I wanted to be able to do, that I just have not been able to do just yet.
I started to do a little more research into what all I wanted my machine to be able to do, and that is when I realized I REALLY needed to purchase the Cricut Maker. Why did I need the maker? A lot of what I want to do is only really doable with the Maker and the Maker’s Knife Blade.
What Can The Maker Do that the Silhouette Cameo Couldn’t?
I had been wanted to create earrings with my old Cameo, but I just couldn’t get it to work. Either it would mess up my faux leather, or it just wouldn’t cut right at all. Since James is a carpenter, I knew that there would be times that I would like a decorative inlays in some of our designs. The Cameo just couldn’t do it.
I know later down the road I also would like to make my own purses and wallets, so the maker was looking REALLY good to me. I knew that it also had better pressure.
What did I do with the Cameo?
I have been working with a fellow crafter pretty much since I got the silhouette and knew she was looking for a machine. The Silhouette would meet her needs also. So, I offered it to her first and she is learning it now. I am still going to be helping her out.
I know I have been bad about posting here, but this is what you can expect
So what is changing here? We are gearing up for Spring and Summer travel, but I also want to share what I am learning with Odysseys Creations, cut files, and more here.
Do You Have Any Tips For Me?
The Cricut community is HUGE I know, so I ask you, do you have any tips to share with me and other readers?
