I have been wanting the Silhouette Cameo forever! But I could never justify getting one. My sister had one, but then she moved to New Zealand. Then I was busy with school. Then I got married and my mother-in-law has a Cricut she lets me use and even let me borrow her mini one. (I couldn’t justify $300 compared to free) And it just never seemed like the right time or the right price to buy one. But I finally decided that I am ready for one.
I have been saving up and scouring the internet for a good discount and I finally found one! Overstock.com had the Silhouette Cameo bundle +Bonus $25 Gift Card + Heat Transfer Kit + accessories for only $199!!!! That is a killer deal! It was a “Doorbuster” that lasted a few weeks but unfortunately it looks like it is over. However right now it is only $209! Still an amazing deal! (Seriously check it out if you have been wanting one!)
The one problem I noticed is that the software that comes with the Silhouette from Overstock.com is not the updated version. I tried to purchase some designs from the software I had downloaded and completely panicked when it told me it was “corrupted” and other scary computer words. I went into immediate panic mode and stared at my husband with the look of “the computer is being smarter than me and I don’t know what to do!” Thankfully he is a computer genius and calmly told me to check the Silhouette website and see if there was an update (duh!). I updated the software and everything works perfectly now! (yay!)
I can’t wait to start creating AMAZING things with this! Now I just need to face my fears of Photoshop so I can create my own designs….
