A couple months ago I splurged and bought myself a Silhouette Cameo, which is a cutting tool. It's similar to the Cricut, but instead of cartridges, you can program it to cut whatever you want. I got some gift cards along with the purchase, and used part of that money to buy some Halloween images. Today I cut them out with the Cameo and the kids had fun telling Adam where to hang them.
I had the idea of replacing the folded postcards on top of my purse packages with folded cardstock cut out with my logo. The cardstock is a bit flimsy, so I would need thicker paper, but I kind of like this look.
We took a free sparrow graphic online and Adam simplified it, and than I figured out how to add a border and turn it into a useable graphic. This was my first effort that cut successfully, and it gives me hope that this purse will turn out well. I'll be working on it later this week.
So that's my cool new toy. I'm hoping to use it for Christmas present this year to save on money. We'll see what kind of cool things I can make! I also have a fabric blade so that I can use it for appliques and things.
