When I hit my 25# weight loss – I decided it was time to reward myself! In the old days it would have been with a big dinner out. Not these days!
I knew exactly what I wanted and was waiting for just the right deal to come along and it did.
Meet my new:
I had been wanting to make this switch for a LONG TIME now. I adore my little Cricut and she has come to many a crop with me over the years. She was a 40th birthday gift from the girls. But I felt so limited with it.
My new Silhouette has actually been sitting in a box for a little while now and I just broke her out.
What I am specifically impressed with is the print and cut feature and that I can do fabric, vinyle, heat transfer and etching. I just need TIME to try all these things out!!
Did you notice that cute little card tucked in the fabric basket:
That was my first project. SO easy and cute. My card making skills are very rusty these days – this is not my best work.
I used the Print and Cut feature – I downloaded the Beatrix Potter image (who does not LOVE Peter Rabbit?) and sent it to my regular printer. Then fed it into the Cameo to be precision cut.
I added a ribbon and wrote a heartfelt message. It may not be perfect but sometimes homemade is better!
I cannot WAIT for more downtime to focus on some much more complex projects and share them.
