It’s such a love-hate relationship! I love what the Silhouette Cameo can do WHEN it does it. And I hate the fact that my Silhouette Cameo still has major blade problems.
Cleaning the blade: Yep, I use a straight pin or needle regularly to clean any paper debris from around the blade.
Blade settings: I have tried every combination of blade settings and papers. I have tried praying for my Silhouette Cameo. But, alas, I have been out-stmarted, again, by that fickle machine.
What I don’t get is why it works like a charm for a week and then,
it just won’t make clean cuts on anything.
The cutting mat: Argh! The cutting mat just doesn’t hold any weight of paper. Everything slides around, making the cutting mat completely useless. Now, I have to tape every sheet of paper and cardstock to the cutting mat and watch closely during the cutting process to make sure the paper goes through smoothly.
If you are having the same or similar problems, please, please, please, leave me a comment so I can share it with my readers.
I leave you with one final word: Help!
