I don't know which of you wrote the following, but it deserves to be read and re-read and remembered.

"The year is just starting. What great things will you want to remember in 2017?

"We're going to lose some heroes in 2017. But we're going to see some new ones rise to take their place. We're going to have some scary moments. But there will be some glorious ones as well. We'll want to remember what we did and what we didn't do and what we almost could have done and what we thankfully avoided. We'll have famous front pages and quiet family moments and history that the future will be thrilled to see first-hand one day, thanks to our scrapbooks.

"It's going to be better. It's going to be better. But we grow from our memories and experiences, good or bad. And that's why we keep them, all together, so we can show them to others down the road. Because history is about moving forward, not back. And we can't leave the past behind if we refuse to look at what it was."

This is just what so many of us need -- reality and reassurance. Happy 2017 to you.

Someone always asks, "What can you make with this?" So here is my album of "what I've made with my Silhouette Cameo."

https://flic.kr/s/aHskgLamFf

I have the Cameo 1, this is the Cameo 3. There are some great improvements in the design over the one I have - convenience features - that I would love. But mine is 3 years old and still going strong, so until it isn't, I'll continue making things with it. I have a relative's 90th birthday party in 3 weeks that I'm making some banners for, and the giant scrabble tiles I made were for a family member who is expecting another baby, so I need to make some more for the new baby. I also just got a new car so it's time to make a new vinyl decal for it. I use it on average once every two weeks, year round.

You can cut so much with this thing - paper, cardboard, felt, vinyl, sticker sheets... if you're a crafter, and you've ever thought about a die cutter, this is way better because it doesn't have dies. The software is easy to learn, the online marketplace for images is plentiful and inexpensive (especially if you buy a monthly credit package) and you can always trace or (with certain versions of the software) import images you have or have found on the internet for free. Also, you can use ALL of your fonts to make cuts. This is the best part - no buying dies for every size and letter you ever want to cut.

I don't work for Silhouette. I am just a huge fan. I had tried a KNK Zing before the Silhouette, hated it, and returned it, in favor of this. I've demo'd the Brother Print and Scan but don't think it has the software or marketplace to match Silhouette's. And the Cricut, which DOES have the massive marketplace, is not as inexpensive per design unless you buy the "total package" but then it's too expensive, and you lose access to all the designs when you stop paying. (Janome, the sewing machine company also has a cutter but its primary claim to fame is embroidery design/appliqué compatibility - very cool if that's your thing.) For these reasons, I chose the Silhouette. Your needs may be different than mine, so make sure to do your own research!

Thanks for all your info as I've debated about getting a device such as this for crafting. You've made some cute things with the Silhouette for sure!

Just thought I'd add my 2 cents about my purchase of this Woot in case a Silhouette Cameo 3 bundle pack is ever offered again. I saw it before as a previous WOOT but I was a day too late so I did some research on it and waited patiently to see it again when, Voila!, there it was!

Before it arrived, I watched 2 days of you tube videos on how to use it. Good thing, as no instructions WHATSOEVER are included - nothing written, no CD or DVD! Everything gets done online, so you'll be more confused if (like me) you don't really like all that "registration" and making an account stuff.

There is a firmware update online required to use the machine properly. If you are not computer savvy, this may not be very easy, although the machine (and your computer) walk you through the steps (in a not-very-elegant manner).

While you can use certain programs you may own, you'll probably use their free software program (download online) which can be a bit buggy. After registering, they even email you a code for a "$25 credit" but fail to tell you what the credit would go toward or where to even find out!

Any help you need I guess you get (like I did) from just using Google, where you'll find tutorials and videos for just about anything offered by a group of people who look to be mainly housewives who went to something called "Silhouette School" to learn everything themselves and get paid from affiliate links when you buy extra stuff. I'm not very young (think: part way between someone who has never owned a smartphone but knows what one is and someone who yells "hey, get off my lawn") so this method was a bit out of my comfort zone for just a little while.

When the machine came, I made sure I did all the updates, and found the machine had to be shut down and restarted a few times and the software closed and opened a few times to recognize what you just did (just do it every so often upon completion of steps during setup - they don't seem to play well together until you do, then all of a sudden you see new stuff when everything is restarted).

Find a video showing how to do test cuts - I had to try the tiny triangle in a box thingie 4 times before getting a PERFECT cut by choosing some different settings. But from being ready to do a test cut to getting something amazing was under an hour at this point. Be sure to watch a tutorial about how to install new fonts if you are doing vinyl - I can now make stuff easily that my local sign-maker had trouble with or couldn't even do!

So now that my Cameo 3 is all set up for the only thing I want to do with it - which is cut vinyl - I LOVE IT and it's probably the best thing I've ever gotten from WOOT! It's not that many years ago that a machine capable of doing the type of work this one can do cost around 2 grand. Color me tickled pink about this great buy from WOOT. This is my first time EVER designing and cutting my own vinyl and if I knew how to make a video I'd probably want to show off how cool this thing is, running just like a mini CNC CAD router. THANKS WOOT!

PS: I did find this link to an instruction manual in PDF form, but since it was the day after I got everything working beautifully and just the way I wanted it, I have not looked at it:
