Cameo Silhoutte

Here are some of the down loadables that I have used for my card projects.  As you can see it is the same base card but by changing the colour of the card stock and embellishments they look so different.


Oh well I'm one happy girl (maybe not so much the other half) I've been shopping to stock my sanctuary.
I almost over loaded, but not quiet.
New papers, card stock, ink, chipboard's, ribbons, paints etc.

One of my favourite purchases is my Cameo Silhouette.
i bought the Silhouette bundle at the Scrap-a-Doddles in South Africa sale.  Money well spent!!!

I am still learning but have found it to be one of my most useful tools.
