Silhouette Quickutz owners

Yippee! I am in 7th heaven!

I was ready to buy the cameo so that I could print on cardstock heavier than 200g and my good sense took over and I contacted Silhouette America telling them about my dilemma.  Although they told me that the Quickutz only cuts up to a certain weight, their suggestion and advice to me was worth its weight in uncut, flawless diamonds.

The Quickutz and Cameo blades are interchangeable! Off I went and bought the blade at a cost of R165.00, fitted it into my machine and there you go.  It cuts like a dream.  200g, 250g, 300g, no problem at all.

Cutting query

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone had tried to cut grunge paper on their Cameo? If so, please can you tell me what settings you used and if you have to double cut. Thanks Hayley

I am very proud of this little snowflake box and intend cutting quite a few to house Christmas gifts.

Silhouette Cuts

My Silhouette is finally functional again and although I am enjoying it, it cannot make a decent cut on board heavier than 180g.  I can just, just get away with the 200g but still have to give it a boost by using the scissors here and there.

My problem is of course various shaped cards on a cardstock heavy enough to make a decent greeting card.

Here I cut the baby bottle shape on a 180g board and then traced it onto a 300g board.  Not as neat and tidy as the silhouette cut but decent enough.

Christmas Card done with my amazing Cameo

This is a Diorama Christmas Card I cut out with my Cameo, including the little roof which I covered with branches. 

My little Cameo has been working overtime ..

One of the cards I made for my cardmaking class .... just loved it!
Hi Amanda,

Many thanks for setting up this blog. I'm sure we are all going to learn
lots about the Silhouette from each other.
