I was very lucky to have a new curio this week, and have spent the week playing and learning how to use it.
There is only a little addition to the software used for the cameo, and so the learning curve was not so bad for me, but I will bear in mind that someone who buys the curio as their first machine, will have a far greater learning curve.
Now the question is do I think the curio is worth its money? well yes, if it was the first machine I had bought and I was 'only' a card maker then I would be highly delighted with this machine. Its cut surface is more than big enough for card toppers, I can print and cut with it and use my pens the older gel pen holder fits in the blade housing perfectly. I can do anything that I did with my cameo only on a smaller scale. I have cut card upto 300gsm so far and it cut well. It looks like it will compliment my cameo perfectly.
Here are a fw samples that ive made this week
Finally I tried my pens to compare with the cameo
As you can see the pens were as excellent as with the cameo.
I made lots of different things that I can not show for now as they have been sent for the design team,
and more importantly I was behind and forgot to photo them! (silly me)
All in all I like the new curio and think it best as a cardmakers machine or a stand along side the cameo.one. My cameo will be plugged in along side the curio and will both have good use.
Thank you for looking
