Last week I was asked what I wanted for Christmas. Truthfully, I had no idea until I went through my Amazon Wish List and saw the Silhouette sitting there. Something that mom and I always talked about doing was making t-shirt and other craft items. So, after seeing the Silhouette just sitting there and then again seeing it at my local Michaels store, I knew what I wanted.Â
As soon as I could, I went to Michaels and picked up the Silhouette Cameo 3. I also picked up a few accessories and other things that I wanted to go with it. I got it home and immediately got it out and started working with it.Â
Ideas and Inspiration!
I know that I am going to need lots of ideas and inspirations as I learn to use this machine! So far I have created three shirts (two with Odysseys With Love) a few boxes, a wine glass, and personalized my new planner! I am looking through the Silhouette Store and picking up a few items with my $25.00 credit that was included with my Silhouette. I have also found that I can download other peoples files and make cut files that way.
I also started to create a design inspiration board on PinterestÂ too.Â

Making My Own Designs and More
I am still REALLY new with this. I have made a few items myself that I want and can’t wait to start trying them out. I am using the files that I am downloading for myself and my family and I’ll go from there with learning and add my own designs as I go too. I thought about opening a little storefront on here but maybe not yet, we will have to see.Â
