My favorite crafting tool is my Silhouette Cameo. I have to admit, it gets neglected a lot because it doesn’t have a permanent home on any shelf in my house and is often tucked away in the linen closet. But…I love it just the same. There are so many amazing things you can do with it from cutting fabric and vinyl, to sketching with the sketch pens to creating rhinestone designs….and that’s not it. There’s a lot more.

Just this last week I broke my Cameo to create cute stenciled tote bags for my girls for our trips to the library this summer. I got to use my Cameo and they got to use paint. Win, win.
