Well I've been brave today and made my first cut on the Cameo, and it worked first time... yay!  My card is just a simple one, and I wish I'd used different colours really... but at least I've started using the machine :o)  New machines scare me lol!

Fabulous, I have had my Portrait for just over a year now and initially as you say it was a little bit scary but it is the best craft machine I have ever purchased. I mat and layer everything on it. Happy cutting love Jane x

Great first card using your new machine! You've obviously cracked it. I'm rubbish with new machines. My hubby bought me the ebosser for Xmas and I cut through the magnetic shim on the first go, lol. Oh well. Debra x
