Silhouette Cameo: Vinyl wall quote for the nursery

Pin It

A couple months ago my husband told me he wanted to get me a Silhouette SD as an anniversary gift. 
I have admired the Silhouette SD for a couple years, but never wanted to actually spend the money to get one.

Even after he told me to get one, I waited a while.
That turned out to be a good thing, since I was able to get a good Black Friday deal on their newest model, the Silhouette Cameo.

I have had it for about a week and a half, and I LOVE it!

So many things that it can do.

What I love the most, is that it doesn't need cartridges, but you can buy individual files (which go on sale sometimes), and you can also use all fonts on your computer.

With all free fonts that are available (and dingbats, which are actually pictures),
 the possibilities are endless.

I realize I sound like I am trying to sell the product. 
Trust me, I am not, I don't get paid to say this, but am just very impressed with it :)

You need to use it with your computer, and it comes with software that is easy to use. 
It can cut a 12x12 sheet, and you can resize a file just by dragging the corners, so you can resize anything pretty easily to exactly the size that works for you. 

The pictures below show my first bigger project.

Our nursery is decorated in a  classic Winnie the Pooh theme. 
I have loved the quote below for quite a while.
So thought it was perfect to go on her wall!

I made the quote and the heart with the Silhouette, using the following free fonts.

The quote: Reklame Script Regular DEMO (only letters, you pay for the full version)
Winnie's signature: Boopee
Heart: KR Heartalicious (actually it's the capital G)

The little bee and Winnie himself are vinyl stickers that we bought several years ago.

You can expect to see more Silhouette Cameo projects in the future!
