my new toy -- and Christmas present! I went ahead and splurged and bought a new machine! A Sizzix Eclips! Oh WOW! It's everything they said it was and more.
Ted's not sure about the set up right now and neither am I, but it will work for the moment. It's just a little crowded. I'm thinking it will get moved this morning, though since we'll be using it A LOT! LOL The gals are coming over for some serious craft time this New Year's Eve day.
And yes, I was doing a little bit of cutting to see what it could do -- what fun! Little cuts and not a single problem like I might have had with the other machine. AWESOMENESS for sure!
Last night, SVGCuts released their new kit -- so I had to pick it up and play with it of course and one of the cards jumped out at me... I found some papers that I thought were funky enough to go "together" did a little inking, some dry embossing, distressing, wrinkling, crinkling and more inking, ran a few of the smaller pieces through the Xyron 1.5" machine, stacked them and Voila!
I used some Hemp twine from Canvas Corp, the angel button was from my stash an oh so long ago, I'm not sure of the source any longer. The yellow floral paper is from sweetwaterscrapbook.com the Bloom Paper Collection (retired, I think); the polka dot is from K & Co and the yellow is an unknown scrap. The base is Wausau. The red textured and DSP is SU! All ink is SU! Brads are from Oriental Trading.
Planning on a great last day of 2011 -- Happy Crafting!
And today's thought is:
Think of what you are and all the fantastic potential of you. Leo Beuscaglia
