Also, I saw you mentioned the silhouette Cameo... I was thinking about purchasing it... but I am not sure.
Does it work good?

It does work well, yes.

If you can justify the cost (they do cost quite a bit) and the time learning how to cut and take care of your machine, then it's totally worth it.

If you're good with photoshop you can even digitize some of your dies or cuts already, or download cuts for free (or even purchase them from the silhouette store)

I got started wanting it when I saw others on Youtube using them, and thought it'd be nice. I didn't want a cartridge system like the Cricut, as their ongoing cost of getting cartridges is too expensive.

Basically, anything you can make, you can trace and cut with this.

I'd get started by visiting the Silhouette website and downloading the software, getting used to it and looking at tutorials online. [link]

The software is free to download whether or not you actually have the machine :)

That's awesome, I will download the software right away!
I was going to buy the Cricut but then I was thinking about the cartridges! I live in Italy and we do not have the Cricut here nor the cartridges, so it would be a real pain to get them because they are already expensive + expensive shipping cost... Not really worth!!
I am pretty good with photoshop, I already do my own things when it comes to digital scrapbooking so I think I should be able to use the Cameo too.

You are right, they are expensive (Cricut is more expensive) but if you think at all the things you can do with them! It's really worth and save money on for example embellishments!!

So thank you so so so much for this answer, really helped!

Can't wait to get the Cameo and start projects!!!

also , I've see on a youtube video that the mat that comes with the Cameo is only for thin paper? and you need to purchase a different mat if u want to cut thick cardstock? is that true?
Thanks again!!

Awesome, hope you learn a lot.

As to your question, the Cameo can cut both thick and thin material. If you go to cut settings (the shape of the blade in the software, upper right hand) you can select different materials.

The old machine Silhouette SD had a thick media mat, but the Cameo can do both thick and thin, just set the blade settings accordingly in the cut settings and it'll guide you to the right blade settings.

Just a hint, I always double cut my paper (tick the double cut button) just in case it's a little too thick for their directions. Comes out clean every time.
