One of my goals this year was to get more familiar with my Silhouette Cameo considering the amount of money I spent on it.  I thought I would be able to plug it on in and just start creating.  Well things of course didn't work out that way... I think that after two years this is one of my more successful projects using it.

I made a variety of different note cards for a few different swaps I have been in recently.

A pretty bird


A peacock


Mama and baby fox


And a whale, some geometric designs, and a leaf

They have so many awesome designs in the online store.  Now that I have two cutting mats it's like a little card making factory in my craft room.  Just need to find a better way to glue the pieces together...

They do a lot of neat stuff.  I just need to start experimenting with it more.  Worth the money for sure if you get enough use out of it!

For some reason I think my friend uses her for felt brooches. I need to check.

Maybe spray adhesive? Or one of those adhesive runners (sort of like correction tape except its adhesive) to glue down just the edges?

My go-to spray adhesive is 3M Super 77. Available in the auto parts stores, or Walmart auto center. Also you can find it in hardware stores in their adhesive eisle. It is more expensive than the Elmers and other spray glues, but those tend to clog, and you don't get to use the whole can. Super 77 stays fresh to the last drop  Grin

I keep baby powder to fend off the stickies. And use disposible rubber gloves for larger projects. I use waxed paper on top, and roller things down into place. And powder the edges before I trim.

I have a board that I lay things on to spray...and change out the scrap {top} papers as they get stickie. Or just wax or parchment works there too. For the backing "catch-all" as you spray. I often hold down the smaller pieces with a needle point, so I don't "blow them away"  Grin Powder your hands and rub down your creation to get the edge stickies off once you have adhered it to your final piece.

Hope this helps. I love spray glue. Of course, I also use Elmers glue sticks for little projects. And nothing can beat Loctite adhesives, either. I keep their gel and the super glue variety handy, as well. It just depends on the project.

I like your notecards. No way could I afford this fancy unit you have. I do all my cutting by hand with cuticle scissors, exacto, and what not. Old school. But your machine looks like it is fun!
