You may have noticed the two little pockets in there which I made easily from some cardstock, washi tape and my Happy Planner Punch. These are great for keeping the main stickers in which I will be using regularly.
So why do I need the Silhouette Cameo & Brother ScanNCut
If you have not already twigged the reason I need my Cameo is that I can begin designing all sorts of beautiful stickers to use in my planner and maybe even sell in the future. This all comes down to the magic fill setting on the Cameo software that lets you choose a pattern and then save any of your own patterns in it. In comparison, the ScanNCut only gives you the choice of solid colours. I will point out that I could have used Photoshop or Craft Artist to design the stickers and then used the ScanNCut to cut them out but if you are using patterns that do not have obvious edges this is not always easy. The Silhouette Software is a dream to use as it allows me to state from the beginning where the cut edges are going to be and the recent upgrade to edition 4 of the software is even easier to use I think. Not only has my Silhouette Cameo become of importance to me again but we are fairly shortly, I hope, going to be upgrading my Silhouette Cameo 1 to the latest Silhouette Cameo 3. As this is a more sturdy design it may need its own trolley.
At the moment I am actually using it on top of the ScanNCut and just lifting it off when I need to use the bottom machine and yes even with the Fibro I can lift this one quite easily which I won’t be able to do with the 3 (the torches are sat there as a temporary solution to give the Cameo more light, I need to sort out a lamp long term) I haven’t even mentioned yet that the 3 has an autoblade to change the depth of the blade at different sections of the cut as well as a double stylus to hold the autoblade in one slot and a pen in the other. When I upgrade I’m going to have some fun.
