I am so excited, I brought my Cameo upstairs because with all the dust and such, I can not work in the basement. I have been wanting to play with it but have not had a chance with it being in the basement. I volunteered to make the place cards for the High School Swim banquet. I was told last week it could be as easy as a piece of paper folded over with names on it. Well, that would not do for me. So this is what I came up with using the print and cut feature of the cameo. Can I just say wow. How easy it was. I started with the sketch pens and just played with an image that I had purchased from the Silhouette library.
From this one I cam up with a 2 pen color one. I like the look of this one but each of the would take about 5 minutes to cut and considering I have more than 100 to make that is too much.
But then I was thinking wait, I remember the cameo can do print and cut. So I found a couple of YouTube videos on how to do it. It only kind of told me so I was off to play. I started with just cutting the images of the Viking head. This image is just off a google search for Fremd Viking image.
So zero cost to me.
Wow that was easy! It was almost to easy. And it cut perfectly on the first try. so know what do I do. I hated to use the sketch pens to do the letters because that is what takes the longest. But it will only print jpegs. So off to figure out how to make text into jpegs. Photoshop elements (which I am also learning how to use) It is a year of begins as you can tell. So here is what I came up with.
This one had to problems, one to page and color of the text does not match.
So I was off to make it smaller and match to text. That is when I came up with the final product. I can fit 4 on a page and less than 5 minutes. I am lobbing for a 12×12 laser color printer so I can get more on a page.
Here is the final results. I am going to take it the swim meet on Friday night and show it to the parent in charge of the banquet and see if it will do. But after all that I would say that the Cameo is easy to use and has great potential.
From Start to Finish
