Silhouette Cameo + October Promo

It’s heeeeeeeeeeere!


That’s right…I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the brand new CAMEO, courtesy of the nice folks at Silhouette.

I’m going to give you the details on the Silhouette promo right away and then we’ll chat.


Silhouette Cameo + starter kit of your choice (vinyl, heat transfer, fabric ink, or rhinestone)



Use code “CRAP” to take advantage of the promotion.  And according to my Silhouette guy, they’re fully anticipating them to sell out.  So, if you’re DYING to get one, go NOW!

OK, where were we?

I actually purchased the fabric ink starter kit on my own a few months back because I HAD to know how well it worked.  The stencil vinyl is 9” wide, so you can use it in your Silhouette SD as well as in the new Cameo (which cuts up to 12” wide and TEN FEET long).  Here’s what came in my starter kit:


Tangent:  The packaging on these new starter kits is DELIGHTFUL!  Nice job, Silhouette folks!

I moved the roller over to adjust the Cameo to cut 9” vinyl


and then got to cutting!


The starter kit comes with clear transfer tape, which has already been applied in this picture.


You will want to burnish the crap out of your design, particularly if it has small details like the peacock.  I don’t have the actual Silhouette tool for that, so I used a download card and a Pampered Chef scraper.

Then you’ll apply the stencil vinyl to your fabric


and apply the fabric ink with either a sponge brush or a sea sponge, depending on the look you’re going for.

(sea sponge on the left, sponge brush on the right)

Once the ink is dry, you peel off the stencil vinyl.


I was WAY impressed with the crispness of the details.


And I can’t wait to get my hands on a few more colors.  Two thumbs way up!

Tomorrow I’ll be trying out the new 12 X 12 cutting mat and letting you know how I feel about that.  In the mean time, feel free to post any Silhouette questions in the comments and I promise to get back to you!

  2. Thanks so much for the review and the many pictures too. Very helpful! Most of all: thanks for the special code! I just ordered a Cameo and chose the vinyl starter kit using your special code! This will be my very first cutting machine – even I can’t believe I’ve waited so long! I’ll be reading your further reviews and comments tomorrow. :)

  3. Wow! Very cool! I love the peacock design.

  4. MUST have one!!!!! THIS would make my life so much easier! If only the hubby could see that..

  5. Was the peacock design on one of the cameo products or did you make it? Is it an SVG file?

  6. So glad you live down the street and I can come over and drool. Very cute shirts.

  7. Oh I want one. Need to let husband know what he’s getting me for Christmas – early :)

      Affton, I checked with my contact at Silhouette and he said that they were already sold out last night. They’ll be back in stock in the next little while. I’ll be sure to let you know when!
