need some feedback. I have been sitting here with a cameo in my shopping basket for half the morning and cant make up my mind I have the expression 2 but this was going to be my mothers day gift. My problem is i do ok with just picking an image from a cartridge and hitting cut but the silhouette scares me because it looks like you have to be more computer savvy, reason i am considering it is i am tired of buying cartridges and they havent even come out with one i would want in ages
Made 5000, now what?

I've had a Cameo for a couple of weeks now. I LOVE it! I can't imagine going back to the Cricut! The cut file options are limitless & don't break the bank, also so many free files out there.
I've been using SCAL for a few years so I kinda had an idea how to use the software. It didn't take long to adjust. There are all kinds of videos out there on any Cameo subject that will help you learn anything about it. Cameo users love to share & help you out, too.

You will not be disappointed. It is very user friendly and the possbilities are endless with what you can do. I use it for titles all the time.

They are really not hard at all. It might seem overwhelming at first .. but start with something simple and progress from there.
SO many user groups on Facebook! You can get almost instant help from them.
I can't begin to say how much I love the Print & Cut. It took just a few times to figure it out, but once I mastered it... It is amazing!

My cameo should be arriving tomorrow. I've watched the videos and ready to go. Someone posted a review and said that if you have used Publisher you should have no problems. I use publisher daily to document activities in my preschool classroom. I hope I am set up tomorrow night and cutting away.

Try making your own shapes, tracing an image, using the text feature... It'll give you a sense of what the computer side of it is like... I'm not computer savvy either - don't do Photoshop, any computer design stuff, or digital scrapbooking, and I found it really easy to use right off the bat... Plus there's lots of great tutorials and videos on Silhouette's website, Youtube, and here, that if you want to start doing more complicated things with it there's lots of guidance...
It's a bit of gateway drug though - now I use digital stamps, use printables, and am even starting to learn about photo editing
