Default Silhouette Cameo stencil question

I have been looking into the Silhouette Cameo for sometime for airbrushing and other projects. Has anyone used one to make thier own reuseable stencils? I came across http://www.uscutter.com/GreenStar-70...-8-5-x-11-25pk this material to use since it was non adhesive. Any thoughts. Is there something better to use to make resusable stencils?

I just use some heavy card stock paper and put it between two self adhesive laminating sheets. It's real good when you want to make your own quick stencils and you can cut them out with X-Acto knife. But using the stencil making material may hold up longer.

I downloaded some cool stencils for our rc's and for the kids for stshirts. they are pretty excited. This whole airbrush aspect is all new to me along with stencils. So much to learn.

Here is what I would do. go and buy white contact paper (the repositionable one). print your design, cut it out, and recut on the contact paper. u can get a roll for $7. when u go to paint, just don't use heat, or leave on bodie too long. I use it all the time for paint.
