The Best Just Got Better - A Look at the New Cameo Machine!

Good morning Friends!

Get your morning coffee and sit right down because this is going to be a long, interesting and good read!

I told you October 15th would be a good day and it is! The New Cameo Machine is in the house!

The Silhouette retailers were invited a few weeks ago to  a webinar presentation of the New Cameo and new Silhouette products. Conrad Walsh, Director of Marketing at the Silhouette Offices in Orem, Utah was in the house and made the presentation. There were plenty of new products that were introduced. I am happy to divulge all the big news!

New Silhouette Products Introduced


Vinyl

New Vinyl in 23 colors (9 of these colors are new!)

*Mat Removable - great for walls and areas were you do not want the vinyl to be permanent (such as apartments!)

NEW - Permanent Glossy Vinyl - NOT removable. Great for outdoors, car decals, and mugs! Dishwasher safe.
Both of these come in either 9" or 12" rolls

NEW - Heat Transfer Vinyl! will come in 9" and 12" rolls in 24 luscious colors

NEW - Glitter Heat Transfer - Will also come in 24 colors but ONLY in 12" rolls
******************************************************

Advent Calendar


NEW - 2014 Advent Calendar - Back by Popular Demand! Will come with downloadable card with 42 exclusive designs. This is a limited item. If you would like me to custom order one (or some!), please email your request to me.

2014 New Holiday Vinyl Starter Kit


NEW - Holiday Vinyl Starter Kit - This kit will contain 4 - 9"color vinyl sheets in red, green, silver and gold, 1- 9" transfer paper roll, 1 Metallic Pen Pack, 1 Hook, 1 Scraper and fifteen (15) exclusive holiday images! If this is something you are interested in, please email me your request. I will be having a special price on this set.....but only to those that email your request! Trust me, it will be a fabulous price!
*********************************************************


New Silhouette Business Edition Software


Before I get into telling you about the new machine, there is a new software that is coming out very soon.  It is called Silhouette Software Business Edition. This is an upgrade to the Silhouette Designer Studio Edition and will sell for  $99.99. If interested in this new software, please email and I will get you the best price possible. It will be a downloadable code and you should receive it 24-48 hours after placing and confirming the order with me.

The main difference between Silhouette Design Studio and Silhouette Business Edition is as follows:
  1. Multi-Cutter Support - you can hook up multiple cutters for bigger jobs
  2. AI/EPS/CDR file type support - Now you can download files from Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw right into your Silhouette software!
  3. Weed Settings Tool - This feature provides the option to create weed lines within open line paths for easier weeding of materials such as vinyl and heat transfer. Options include a surrounding weed line border as well as internal weed lines inside the design's open spaces (such as within letters) to provide an easy method of removing excess material after the completion of the cut job.
  4. Automated Nesting Preview Mode - shapes are automatically nested within the Media Layout View to provide efficient usage of the material being cut, while maintaining the image's original positioning in the Design View thus allowing the user to continue editing and refining the design.
  5. Matrix Copy Feature - This feature will provide the ability to create matrix of multiple copies of the same project that are replicated during the processing of the cut job but which do not actually alter or effect your original design.
  6. Automated Tiling Feature - The Tiling feature provides a method by which a larger job can be cut from a series of smaller tiles which are then assembled after the cutting process is completed in order to create the larger scale job. By example, the Tiling feature will allow the user to design a large scale image of 24 inches height by 24 inches width and cut it out in several passes. Even though such a material size cannot be cut in a single pass due to the Silhouette's maximum cutting width limitation of 12 inches, the Tiling feature will automatically segment the job into a series of smaller jobs that can be cut out and then assembled to achieve the final 24 inch by 24 inch project.


Introducing the New Silhouette Cameo!


Silhouette Cameo is the #1 cutting machine in the Arts and Crafts industry. I think we knew that!

The photos below were taken from my PC from the webinar with my Samsung Note 3 smartphone. They are not the best but you will be able to see the new features. My 'Snag It' program was not working and I do apologize for the fuzziness of these pictures.

First and foremost...............THE NEW SILHOUETTE CAMEO IS NOT WIRELESS! Whoever has been spreading this rumor, shame on you! This is completely false! Ok, now we can continue with truthful information. Thank you for listening. :)




 Is this not beautiful and sleek? A similar look to the old Cameo but this one looks more modern and radiant. Don't you think so too?

A very modern look to the new Silhouette Cameo Machne


 On the right side you will see a full color, high-resolution, LCD touchscreen. Can we say Hoo-Wee! From this screen you can choose a "help" feature which is especially good for newbies to help them work with their machines. You can also customize a "sleep" schedule for your Cameo that you can fit around your schedule.
Full-color LCD touchscreen!


1.  Steel spring rollers: In the former Cameo machine, the rollers are hard plastic. Steel spring rollers were added because they are more gentle to delicate materials. An example would be cutting foam. Steel spring rollers will not leave those nasty impressions.
2. Fiberglass-Reinforced Belt - this is a longer-lasting belt and built more durable. Holds on tighter for a more precise cut.

Steel spring rollers and Fiberglass-Reinforced Belt


 3. Built-In cross-cutter! There is a channel that is attached to the back of the Cameo. After you complete a cut job, it will give you the option to advance your material. The photo below shows vinyl that has been advanced to the cross-cutter. This is a fabulous addition to those that work with vinyl. Now you can get that straight cut that was almost impossible to do with the former Cameo. You will never have to unload your vinyl out of the machine. It also come with that handy little cutter you see below.

Built-in cross-cutter


 4. Guide Mark - Finally! Now aligning your cutting mat is a snap! No more guessing where your mat should or should not go. I don't know why this wasn't thought of the first time around.

Guide Mark

5. USB port for crafting without the use of your PC! It is located to the right of the off/on button which is the blue button on your right. You will be able to cut your designs directly from your USB drive. Craft nights are going to be so much easier because you can download your files to a USB drive and just take your Cameo sans PC with you!

USB Port (2nd from right)


6. Storage compartment. Great for keeping your blades (you can even store the cross-cutter here). At least your blades won't go MIA anymore.

Storage Compartment

7. Roll feeder.....this may not be new to some of you, but it is a new feature for cutting vinyl without a mat. The roll feeder lets the vinyl feed through the machine so that bigger DYI projects can be made easier and faster. I have a very limited quantity of the roll feeder in my Etsy store.

Roll Feeder with former Silhouette Cameo Machine



8. Newly Re-branded Silhouette Design Store - One of the best collections for digital art and very modestly priced. There are great annual subscriptions you can sign up for too. Silhouette has had a digital design store longer than any other company out there and they know what the consumer wants and is looking for. The other company's designs are not, at least in my opinion, the best. I'm very picky with what I buy, and I won't say I don't buy someone else's digital designs, because I do. Having said that, I do end up at the Silhouette Design Store and end up buying more digital content.

Silhouette Design Store
Here is what you get in the box. It will retail for the same amount as the Silhouette Cameo (approx. $299). If you are going to buy a new Cameo (and by the way, the name of the new machine is the Silhouette Cameo. No new name, just a more advanced and sleeker-looking machine.

If I were to buy one, I would wait for Black Friday as I heard they are having a promotion for the holidays.

OK, so start asking your husbands, boyfriends, significant others, your kids.........whoever you want, that you would like a brand new model Silhouette Cameo for the holidays!!!









Things to Remember about the Silhouette Cameo (Former and New)


Also, remember that the Silhouette Cameo has an 12" cutting surface.....Most machines out there cannot accommodate a full 12" cutting area......the Cameo does. The Cameo also gives the crafter "the most options to cut what they want and how they want to cut it and to customize it in countless ways." - Conrad Walsh

Print and cut is nothing new as it has been with the Cameo (actually all the way back to the Craft Robo machine which was pre-Cameo). This advanced feature was pioneered by Silhouette a decade ago. There is as with all other Silhouette machines, an optical scanner for your print and cut. Nothing new here, folks as this works like magic. Remember to pick up your Pix Scan mats and you are ready to go! Silhouette is having a hard time keeping these mats in stock. I do have a limited quantity of them in my Etsy shop, so if you would like one, now is the time to get one!
**********************************************************************

I did ask Sarah Foote, Retail Promotions Manager, a few questions that were asked by my customers at the webinar:

Q: Will you be able to save as an SVG? Will it emboss (embossing tool)? What about Wi-Fi? 

A: All versions of Silhouette Studio currently only save into a STUDIO or STUDIO3 file format. There is no embossing tool currently offered for any Silhouette cutting model. The new CAMEO will not include WiFi.

Meaning.........no saving to SVG. If you have the older version/s that saved to SVG.......DO NOT DELETE THEM!

I knew the Cameo would not include WiFi at the get go.......but that doesn't mean that they're not working on it because a little bird told me they are. When? Who knows........but I will be asking this same question again at CHA. That's going to be a good show this coming January.


This was one of my longest posts ever and if you got to the end...............thank you. I took most of the day yesterday to type this up as I didn't want to you to miss anything that was important. 

If you have any questions, I will try to answer. If I don't know the answer I will pass them over to my Rep for him to answer. One thing is for sure: I can't wait for CHA this year!

New Stamp Releases and Blog Hop!

Good morning Friends!

It's that time for a new stamp release from A Creative Journey with Melissa!

Welcome to the monthly NEW RELEASES for A Creative Journey with Melissa. Every SECOND WEDNESDAY of the month we will be featuring our newly released stamp sets. As you are all aware, I am a Design Team member for A Creative Journey with Melissa and I am so excited to be able to share these beautiful creative designs with you today. The new stamp releases are Celebrate Judaism, and Fall & Winter Holiday Sentiments. Also highlighted are our amazingly cute and versatile Everyday Alphabet (Upper Case with Emoticon and Lower Case with Numbers) and Everyday Alphabet Outline stamp sets throughout this hop.

I am featuring the Celebrate Judaism, Everyday Alphabet Upper Case and Emoticons  and Everyday Alphabet Lower Case stamp sets. It is hard to find stamp sets for any Jewish holiday. Melissa has taken that burden away by making a beautiful stamp set one can use for many Jewish holidays and celebrations. My First card, 'Happy Bat Mitzvah' was made with four layers of cardstock, two which were embossed. I took an ink pad and rubbed it over the embossed background and used the same ink to stamp the images.




My second card, 'MazelTov', was made with ribbon. I covered the entire front of the card with thick, glittery blue and silver ribbon. I loved the simplicity and elegance it gave to the stamp set. This is a perfect card for a wedding or anniversary.




I love using Melissa's stamps.  They are very versatile, stamp with detail and are easy to use. You can find the Celebrate Judiasm stamp set here.

I made my first 12 x 12 Project Life page using the Everyday Alphabet Upper with Emoticon and Everyday Alphabet Lower Case Stamp set . It's never too late to start a baby album...even if your baby is now 25! Project Life is all about documenting, so I made sure to write as much as possible and use my own handwriting for posterity. You can find the Everyday Alphabet Upper Case and Emoticon set here. The Everyday Alphabet Lower Case and Numbers can be found here.

Order Status on Silhouette Pix Scan and other Silhouette New Products

Good Afternoon Friends,

Just an update on orders received for the new Silhouette Pix Scan and other Silhouette new products. I have been inundated with orders on Facebook and by email. It will take most of today through midnight to answer all of you. If you have sent me an email yesterday or today, you are OK. I will get back to you with any questions you may have today....even if it takes me past midnight to respond. You have until midnight tonight (11:59PM PST) to email or FB message me an order. I want to place the order tomorrow so that Silhouette receives it by Monday, August 4th.

This is how I am taking orders for Silhouette new products:

1. Send me your PAY PAL email and HOME ADDRESSES so that I can write up an invoice for payment. I believe Pay Pal will take Visa, MC, DISC and AMEX if needed.

2. I will send you an invoice through Pay Pal and once it's paid I will enter your order.

3. I will order on Monday, August 4th

4. Order should arrive by the end of the week...I say should. I will keep you updated on the order status

5. All orders from California will have 9% L.A. CA tax added to your total. 

5. Once the order is delivered to me, I shall then ship out the products to you. Every order will have a tracking number. I plan to have all shipping labels done beforehand so that I can then ship out faster.

**If you email after the cutoff time, you will have to order the products through my Etsy Store when I get the items in stock. That will probably be in three weeks' time. The people that placed their orders in the last two days will get the products first. Etsy will be second. If you have any questions, please EMAIL and I will do my best to answer.

P.S. THE PIX SCAN MUST BE USED WITH SILHOUETTE VERSION 3, SO IF YOU HAVE NOT UPDATED, YOU MUST DO SO TO USE THE NEW MAT. I want to make sure this is understood.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

Silhouette NEW PRODUCTS Information! Order Yours NOW and Get a Free Gift

Hello Friends:

It's been awhile.........but I have plenty of news for you today!!! As you are aware, I am an authorized Silhouette retailer. When the news broke yesterday of four new products, my email and Facebook exploded with questions! Well, I went right to the source so I can get you answers...........here you go!!

So many of you have been asking questions about the new products I thought it best to put out an information sheet to hopefully answer your questions.

Here goes:

Pix Scan:

PixScan™ cutting matsUse the PixScan™ mat with your Silhouette electronic cutting tool and Silhouette Studio® software to cut precisely around a printed design or when you need to position cut lines in a specific location on your material. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!  Your Silhouette will recognize registration marks on the PixScan™ mat and cut your material just as you’ve indicated in Silhouette Studio®. It’s a great way to use stamps, hand-sketches, and pre-printed images.


 I spoke with my Rep………this is an actual mat that you can cut from. It does not replace the tracing feature. You put your image (rubber stamp, etc.) on the mat where ever you want. You can scan the picture, take a picture of the image and then scan to your Silhouette software.
Your picture stays the SAME SIZE as your original………no more measuring or guessing. You can create an offset and cut or just make cut lines of the image to cut………the Pix Scan has built in registration marks……..you tell Silhouette WHAT to CUT and WHERE to cut………..FABULOUS!
A brand new You Tube video is out and here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOaO1UNcyes  You will absolutely love it!
Pix Scan mat retails for $14.99………..if you order through me, it will be $12.00 plus $4 shipping to US. Canadian orders accepted but I would have to contact USPS to see what would be the least expensive way to ship.

 Silhouette Roll Feeder


 The Roll Feeder provides easy and convenient placement of rolled materials when cutting with your Silhouette. Simply place the Roll Feeder in front of the Silhouette and seat your rolled material into the Roll Feeder. The Roll Feeder provides a convenient guide so your material is loaded into the Silhouette straight and avoids concerns of improper loading alignment.  The Roll Feeder includes Roll Feeder and Crosscutter.  Replacement Crosscutters are available for individual purchase.

  Glass Etching Cream - 2 oz. bottle

Use Silhouette glass etching cream with your Silhouette to permanently etch personalized text and designs onto mirrors or glassware. Simply cut a stencil using your Silhouette and apply Silhouette etching cream for permanent and beautiful etched glass.


New & Improved Silhouette Pen Holder


Replace your Silhouette’s blade with a pen to sketch instead of cut.The Silhouette pen holder can be used in all Silhouette electroniccutting tools and will hold most ballpoint pens. The Silhouette PenHolder allows use for a range of drawing instruments from a thinnerstandard pen to select thicker felt-tip markers.Includes three threaded collets for varying pen sizes - small
(blue), medium (white), and large (grey). 
Prices are as follows:

Pix Scan Cutting Mat (Cameo & Portrait),
         retail price $14.99......my price $12.00 (Shipping $4 additional Mats $2 ea)
Roll Feeded retail price $ 39.99 my price $34.00 (shipping $12)

IS WI FI ON ITS WAY TO OUR SILHOUETTE!????????

Someone mentioned Wi-Fi or Bluetooth adapter…………………………..they are seriously working on this!!!! I just about screamed when my Rep told me this. He thinks it may be Wi-Fi rather than Bluetooth and with this………………….we can design on our iPads and tablets………..can I get a Woot Woot!!………..thank you Berni for asking this question!!!!!


Last but Not Least……….

Silhouette coming down in price…………..what does this mean?

For one it means that you are getting a great deal on a Silhouette Cameo! The price has dropped to $229! I can order these but I would need a zip code first to see what the shipping cost will be (between $25 and $40 depending on zip code. I think it’s better to order the Cameo from Amazon and get free shipping if at all possible. Silhouette will not drop ship anymore.

Since the cost of the Cameo went down, I had to ask “Is something else coming?????” I’m not allowed to say but………. Stay tuned…!
