I have a Cameo! I got it when it first came out (Oct 2011). I LOVE IT!!!! I plan on making my invites and other wedding paper goods – I am sure I will use it for something! I use it all the time for making cards – Here is a link to a gallery of my cards.  You will love it – it is awesome.

Definitely interested in what people who have them have to say!!

@multinational:  I buy some designs but I also make a lot myself right in Silhouette Studio – I upgraded to the designer edition of Studio – if you plan on making your own designs I would definitely do that.  It can accomodate simple clipart you need to trace the design in Silhouette Studio – some clipart traces better than others. It still has its limits, you could probably do more in adobe, but it suits my purposes just fine.  You can also find a lot of free designs out there.  I would also recommend joining this forum: http://s15.zetaboards.com/Silhouette_Plus/index/  there is tons of information on there.  I love the stuff on A Little Hut, too! It’s beautiful.  I don’t sell anything – I just do it for fun on the side, so I can’t help you much there.

I’ve had my cameo for a few months. I’m still learning, but so far, I’ve been very very happy!
I haven’t upgraded the software yet but I probably will before I get too far into wedding DIY.
My cameo came with 35$ of credit to the online store so I’ve been playing with different designs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy birthday!
