And this special Cameo bundle comes with the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software with an enhanced sketch feature to easily create your own designs. You can also cut out any font on your computer, including all the Kevin & Amanda Fonts. And just as before, the Silhouette is Mac and PC friendly.

    There are so many things that I would love to make with the Cameo it is hard to pick what I would do first. If my 8 year old daughter found out that you can make tattoos with it, I am sure that is what she would want me to do first. She loves temporary tattoos.

  65. Christa Griffith

    And yes, I said nifty

  80. Catherine

    I am struggling to pick a beginning point, but I would use this Cameo right away for the projects I’ve dreamed of having the tools to make. Outside of being in the process of reorganizing my new apartment and looking for ways to start fresh and have everything labeled organized, but still PRETTY, I’ve always wanted to find a simpler way to create personal cards for my friends and family to thank you for their support or let them know I’m thinking about them. I think I’d do that first so I can personalize each one and really learn the features while making something special for the people who are special to me. But wow, the possibilities of what to do with this really are endless! ::Fingers crossed::

  81. Jillian

    I would make monograms and decorations for my daughter’s backpack and dance bag first — but so many other things after that!

  83. Haley

    I would etch my casserole dishes first- love that idea! No more masking tape and permanent marker identification of dishes! :)

  84. Mindy Stell

    Just in time for my daughter’s bedroom re-do. I would love to print some vinyl words for over her bed! Oh and Happy Birthday!!!

  85. Jennifer Marsh

    I would put vinyl wall quotes all over my house, starting with my daughter’s room. Thank you, and your fonts are the BEST!

  86. Trudy

    I’d first make vinyl words to go all over my walls! I’d probably not be able to stop. But if I did finally stop, then I’d start etching all the glass I could find! :)

  87. Laurie Ann Phinney

    I want to create a Family Tree Wall in my wee little office – I would use this wonderful tool to create the tree and titlework to go above it. Then, I would add my photos to the leaves in a vintage tag format. I have been dreaming of this project for some time now. I want to make it a reality.
    Thank You So Much For the Chance to Win and CONGRATULTIONS On Your Anniversary!
    Hugs From Laurie AKA Idgie

  88. MommaMary

  89. Kasi

    I would add some of my favorite quotes to my bedroom wall. I own a cricut, but I love the idea that you can use any font downloaded on your computer with the Silhouette. Such a neat gadget!

  90. Marisa G

    This contest is so much fun!! I just thought of a million crafts I would do when I win this!! LOL – First and foremost – I’d label everything!!! Then I’d start creating vinyls for the walls, then I’d make some fun tattoos for the kids, Then I’d……

  92. Michelle Krisik

    First thing I’d make it some cute shirts I’ve been eyeballing for my kids. And maybe my nieces. And my nephews. And friends kids……

  93. Fran Jacobs

    Happy 10th anniversary! My first project would be vinyl wall words and some Disney characters for my grandchildren’s room. They would be THRILLED!

  94. Diana K

    Rudy Borel is my hero. As a loving, and sometimes grouchy guy, my pawpaw has always held me in a special place in his heart. And I, the youngest of 3, have always looked back to him as a hero. My pawpaw and I share a common interest, which is our unending love of technology. When I call him a hero, I mean to say that this man is a genius when working with electronics. He will be turning 82 on June 23rd of this year, but he can swap a motherboard more quickly than I. If I were to have this beautiful machine, I would be able to incorporate my love of design with my love of technology, and to create a lovely birthday gift for my pawpaw, Rudy. I would love to be able to create first with this machine an engraved computer tower, using a silhouette created from an image of him on his red Harley, a handsome reminder of how what a cool man he is. When the time comes and health complications dampen the situation further, I will have a reminder to keep (and hold my pc components) of my lovely and wonderful hero, my pawpaw.

  95. Rebecca Bauer

    First i would make wedding decorations for my sisters wedding in August!!!! She would love it!!!! Love the Silhouette, My friend has one, i just havent been able to get it yet!!!! Happy birthday guys!!!


  96. Melissa J Kerno

  97. Melissa Jones

    I would make labels for all of our containers that hold various flours (i.e. bread flour, all purpose, wheat, etc.).

  98. Stephanie Hensley

    I would have to say I would make something for my twin toddlers — matching clothes make me swoon, and to personalize them with ease would be amazing!
