New Silhouette Cameo, now what?

Silhouette Cameo 2

I purchased a Silhouette Cameo 2 last week from Papirgleder.no (who ship ridiculously fast), but only after unpacking it did I realise that I don’t know what I don’t know. The Cameo didn’t come with any kind of starter pack in the box, just a knife and a cutting mat. I had assumed as much, so I made sure to buy some reflective heat transfer vinyl and some matte black wall vinyl.

What I didn’t realise however was that to use vinyl for decals and whatnot, one also must purchase transfer paper/ transfer tape. Which meant buying more supplies, this time from Bikuben.com. I also picked up some stuff on eBay from Craft-e-Corner and Greenstik Materials.

Last night, after much cursing and annoyance I finally produced something all on my own, which I’m actually quite chuffed with. A black vinyl decal of Pepper’s face for Blue’s iPhone. I used a Snapchat picture, Inkscape and this tutorial from somedayCRAFTS, and a bit of clean up in Photoshop to make it.
