Vintage and Distressed!

Hello lovelies : D   Guess what?  I've finally taken the plunge and ordered a Silhouette Cameo!  Yay!!!  I am SOOOOOO excited!  On Saturday, I sold my Cricut Expression and am on my way to selling the last of my cartridges.  I must say that it is FUN to sell on ebay!

So... how many of you already own a Cameo?  Is it as awesome as I keep hearing? What kinds of projects have you made with it?  I hope that it won't be too long before I get mine...

If you've made something with your Cameo, would you mind leaving a link to your creation on this post?  I'd LOVE to see what you've made!

And now, I'd like to share a tag I made using one of the new PEEKER stamps by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  As you know, my style is usually neat and tidy - BUT today I've gone waaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of the box!!!  You know what?  I actually liked it!


Different, huh?  
I'm hoping that I've made the torn image look burned.  
What do you think?



The background on this tag is from the 'left-overs' on the card from my previous post.  If you'd like to see how I made it, check it out *HERE*

Supplies Used for Today's Distressed Tag

Thanks for taking a peek and for leaving any comments : D  
Remember, I'd love to see what you've made with your Cameo!!!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~

Lori beautiful tag. Yes it looks really good around the edges. You did a fantastic job with the image and tag.

Can't show you anything I've made...since I don't own an electronic die cutter of any kind! Hope that you get yours soon, then you can tell me what you think. GREAT tag. While it may be a bit...ok a lot... outside the box for you, you did a super job with it!!
