This afternoon I got crafty with the birthday present I received last fall…I finally got a Cricut die cutting machine! I had been wanting one for ages and just couldn't justify spending the money when my main bread and butter craft is sewing (althought I can use it for cutting appliqués), so my husband removed that burden and bought it for me. So, when I was asked to donate an item for a fundraising raffle I decided to dress it up; I created a thank you card with my information for the winner. I am thrilled with how it turned out…I plan to make some of these to include as thank you notes with my orders.
While I have enjoyed my forray into the papercrafting world via the Cricut, it does pose some limitations for me; I am exploring the Cameo Silhouette to see if it can allow me a little more flexibility and creativity…it's very difficult spending all that dough on a Cricut cartridge when I typically only want one graphic (that I probably could have created myself using Illustrator). I'm specfically trying to find out if I can actually use any font I have and create any graphic to be imported. If that is the case, there may soon be a Cricut available for purchase. I would love to read any comments regarding reader experiences with both machines!
