Silhouette Cameo: it’s cutting!

Yippee…my Cameo cuts!

Hi, folks. Well, I am here with good news about my Silhouette Cameo! Just to bring you up-to-speed, I bought my Cameo in November, but wasn’t able to use it because it had a defective blade. I called Silhouette America, explained the problem, and they sent me a new blade–which was also defective. Then came a third defective blade.

Finally, on yet another call to Silhouette America, I was told that the original blades were defective–they were set into the casing at the wrong angle. They also told me that all new blades had been manufactured and the problem was corrected.

So, I waited patiently (sort of) for my fourth blade to arrive. It did. It works. I’m ecstatic! I finally have a blade that is not defective.

Here is a photo of some tiny doilies that I cut out, yesterday. I laid a car key beside them to give you an idea of their size. I also cut out a bunch of little flowers and some birds. That’s a good start, don’t you think? Here’s one more photo showing a teeny tiny branch.  It’s a very clean cut…yayyyyyyy!!!

I get about a thousand visitors every month who are looking for solutions to their Silhouette Cameo cutting problems. I sure hope this helps. Don’t give up on your Cameo! If you’re having issues with your blade, be sure to contact the Silhouette America support line for help. They have really been terrific and always willing to discuss my problems and answer my questions. Good luck…and happy crafting!
