Sneak Peek! Introducing the Silhouette Cameo!

As most of you know I just returned from the CHA Summer show.  We had a wonderful time and have come back more inspired, it's hard to express.

For all of your Silhouette lovers or if you have been on the fence about buying a die-cutting machine, your wait is over.  The hit of the CHAS show hands down was Silhouette America's introduction of the Cameo:

The Silhouette Cameo is "an electronic cutting tool that connects to your home computer just like a printer.  However, rather than printing images, the Silhouette cuts out designs and text"

According to the Silhouette America sales guru TJ, the new Cameo is expected to be out mid October.  Pre-Sales order will be available during the month of September.  The MSRP for the new Cameo is $299.

So, want more deets?
The Silhouette cuts a variety of media, and the new cutting blade which is expected to be released with the Cameo will cut CARDBOARD!  WooHoo!  The blade is still in production, but the team is hoping it will be included with the new machine.  Keeping our fingers crossed!

More BIG NEWS!  The new Cameo will cut designs and texts from 1/4" to 12" wide and 10' long.  AMAZING!

The Silhouette Cameo will have the same features as the Silhouette SD, but get this...it's QUIETER!  Not only that, the cut is more precise and more exact!  I was an eye-witness and just LOVE IT!

Also released at CHA:  Fabric Ink Starter Kit, Vinyl Starter Kit, Rhinestone Starter Kit and Heat Transfer Starter Kit...So fun, the ideas are just endless.



So stayed tuned for pre-sale offers available sometime in September.  I think the Silhouette America team are top notch and would make a great addition to the That Scrappy Girl store.  Keep tuned for pre-sale offers coming in September.  Here is some more eye candy:

Well that just moved up to the top of my Christmas wish list! I've been on the fence and this just pushed me over! Looks wonderful!

It really does and was so glad I had the opportunity to play with it. I can't wait to try the new fabric paint. The projects looks super cute up close.

Hi, I'm curious about this SC machine. I saw somewhere that it doesn't cut chipboard. What thickness [1mm+or-] does it cut? and what does it cut?
thank you,
KimberlyRae

Does this cut currogated cardboard? If so, how thick? 3 millimeters (that's about 1/8 inch thick)?
