My Making Memories Slice die cutting machine arrived on Monday. It was scheduled to be delivered on Thursday, so I was super excited that it came early!
I have to say, I love that little thing!! And I only have the basic shapes card.
I played around with it, and made this little love tag. Everything, including the tag, was cut out using the Slice.
I used foam dots to add some dimension. The hearts are cut from Bo Bunny paper. I added black stickles to the word LOVE.
I love my slice. I can't wait to get more design cards for it. If you have been thinking about a die cutting machine, this little guy is great. No cords, it charges and then you unplug it. You can take it to crops. The design cards are tiny, so storage isn't an issue. If you have a small scrappy space, the Slice doesn't take up much room. I think it's affordable, compared to some of the bigger machines. I don't have the hands free gizmo that comes with it, but honestly, it cuts so fast, I can hold it for the 30 seconds it takes. I'm very happy with it!!
Yesterday, I got more happy mail!! Joscie sent me some Hawaiian Kona coffee! YUM... and some macadamia nut chocolates.... AND some of this very cool masking tape. I can't wait to use it. Look how cute it is:
I also wanted to share this photo. I'm doing Project 365 (yes, again), and took this photo the other day while it was snowing. I took my son's hat and caught some snowflakes. I had to take the photo with the door open because when I brought the hat it, the snowflake would melt! (duh!) So, I sat the hat on the floor of the deck and snapped this shot. Everyone in the P365 group was asking me if it's real... and yes, it's real! I used my close up lenses to get a macro shot of it. There are actually 2 snowflakes stuck together. A big one and a small one.
Speaking of snow, I guess we'll be getting up to 10 inches starting this afternoon and into tomorrow. I'm going to get my Superbowl stuff today, so I don't have to be out tomorrow... I have a feeling it's going to be a mess! YIKES! Seeing that the Pittsburgh Steelers aren't in the Superbowl this year, I have no idea who to root for, so I'll just enjoy the commercials! ;)
Have a great weekend!
