A new toy

Oh my , I haven’t been in blog-land forever! No wait, let me re-phrase that! I haven’t been in my little blog for ages! {I’ve been too busy popping in at everyone else’s! }Surprised smile

Once I start blog hopping, I end up ‘travelling’ all over the world devouring every ounce of craftiness I can. I’m sure I’m not the only one that this happens to! I like to think it’s at least a little constructive – at least I’m learning new crafts and gaining inspiration at the same time!

Then my internet connection {and landline at home} bombed out and it took 3 weeks for Telkom to fix it. Thankfully it’s all up and running now again.

One place I’ve visited over and over again lately is the Silhouette website.

I am so excited as I have finally taken the plunge and bought myself a Silhouette die-cut machine! {sigh} I have been oohing and aahing over one for about 2 years now.

We sold my car last month {no- not to buy a silhouette ha ha!} - This month I have no car payment to make- so guess what I did? Yip I spent that money on something far more useful than a car! {giggle}!

Seriously, it was just my luck I had my hubby’s car to drive while I waited {impatiently} for my new car to arrive! Plus no car payment for one month, and I’m off shopping for a crafty gadget! So here is my new little plaything…

What I love is that I can use my own designs using my computer and I can cut out absolutely any font I choose too! Ooh the possibilities are endless!

I’ve discovered how to design my own designs – either ones I can print and cut like this : cupcake

Or more simple designs like this which I can cut out of coloured or patterned paper or cardstock like this:birdonbranch

So I’ll be playing with paper a lot again now! {And i got my new car too –yay!}

I’m not sure how big these images will download here on my blog, but if you like them and want to use them, go ahead and grab them!  Enjoy!

PS : If you have a Silhouette and would like the printable files- just leave a comment for me and I’ll upload them for you!

I have a silhouette and would love to have these darling printables. Are there any tutorials on how to make your own designs.
