New tool

One of the pretty boxes under my tree this Christmas had one of these bad boys in it.



A desktop die cutting machine without the limitations of stock designs. Huzzah.

I'm not a scrapbooking person so I usually just skip that aisle at the crafts store but I had been seeing this machine all over the blogs and wanted one. I put it on my Christmas list and Mr. L bought it for me. (In case you were wondering, I wasn't one of the chosen few to get a free machine - we had to shell out for it retail.)

Now I have it and my head is swimming with projects to give a go. Just have to find some time to get to them But until I have something to show, I thought I'd share some really cool projects I ran across on other blogs while I was researching it.

Little Birdie Secrets decked out her kitchen aid mixer.



Under the Table & Dreaming made geometric paper luminaries


TidyMom etched a footed glass bowl



Anyone else have one of these and do other non scrapbooky projects with it? I'd love to see.

  2. I'm completely jealous! My mom got one of the Cricut machines and they're nice, but being a big computer geek I'm really in LOVE with the Silhouette machine. Your hubby is a fabulous gift-giver!

    That idea with the Kitchenaid mixer is BRILLIANT.

  3. I bought one with my Christmas money. :) I love the etched glass pieces I've seen around the blogs, and I'm planning on making a few cute t-shirts and bags for my girls with the heat transfer paper and the rhinestone application stuff. :)

  12. I wouldn't turn down a silhouette, but I really want a Go Cutter (http://www.accuquilt.com/GO-Cutters-C437.aspx). Ashley has both and is full of tutorials and inspiration ( here: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2008/11/decorate-my-home-series.html
    and here:

  14. What a wonderful gift! I am going to check it out. I am not a scrapbooker, either, but I always feel I have so many uses for one. I am going to check out the Go Cutter your other reader suggested, too.

  15. I got one for my birthday right before christmas. all I've had time to do is make some treat boxes for Christmas! I'm going to play with cutting some cotton appliques...even though it says it can't cut cotton...But from what I read if you set it up the right way it's entirely possible. :)

  22. I just got one too and made a simple welcome new year banner with it just to test it out. I need to spend some time playing with it to see what all I can do- can't wait to see your projects!

  23. Mr. L did good! I don't scrapbook either, so I don't pay too much attention to these machines...but, this is wishlist worthy! I want one! I saw a tutorial over at V and Co. on putting adhesive vinyl on canvas for artwork! I think that would be fun! Or maybe spruce up my kitchen backsplash tiles! I can't wait to see what you do Mrs. Limestone! :)
