I have times like that, blog heaps for a while then nothing for ages, nothing like going with the flow. I have been making stuff though but only one layout to share, the rest were gifts which I forgot to photograph before I gave them away,lol. Since my last post there has been a new arrival in our family, no not another baby but a beautiful petite little silhouette digital cutter. Oh how I love it, it's sleek design, it's speedy little blade and the designs, oh the designs. I had previously owned the klic'n'kut element, a birthday gift a few years back, which although I liked, I never really loved it. To get the most out of it you really needed to learn it and honestly I just could never be bothered. The capabilities of the software were huge but you really need to be quite techno savvy (although my husband claims I am, he has mistaken time spent on the computer with knowledge about it ;-)I also find that the silhouette cuts are much more intricate. I know it doesn't have the chipboard cutting ability of the knk but everything else just rocks and the software is very user friendly. I made the elements for the layout above in minutes. the 09 in the circle (which I straightened later)the fun and games in the bracket and yep even the run, jump, skip and play is from the silhouette too, they have a fantastic print and cut range. I can see me using this in almost every layout I do from now on. I have even used it for making costumes for the boys school concert in a few weeks, more of that later..
