Once again, I've changed the look of my blog. I've got to decorate for the seasons, you know? I also changed my photo. I was feeling a little guilty about using a younger, thinner version of myself...lol. I am usually the one behind the camera, so I don't have too many photos, but this one is just a few weeks old, so it's current (I'm a little older, a little...well, you know). Not sure why I feel the need to explain that, but alas...I'll stop now.
So now that I've decorated for Fall, I'm actually starting to make Christmas projects. How quickly I move on...lol. Actually, I just needed an excuse to bust out my newest stamp set, Stocking Prints from Papertrey Ink:
Can I just say how much fun this set is? I felt like a little elf in Santa's workshop as I stamped, cut, mixed and matched, making my little stockings. And I like how the curved rectangle die works with the three stockings. I notched out the sides with a circle punch so that I could fit my buttons right into the space it created. I like this slightly homespun look.
So, I have a question for you all reading my blog. I'd like to know if you have a digital craft cutter. I'm toying with the idea, but I have no idea where to start. If you own one, I'd love to hear what you think and which one you have. I need to hear the pros and cons on this one. Thanks for your help!
