I made this layout as my example of just a couple of the ways I like to use my machine (using the new Sunkissed kit from Noelmignon.com).
I can cut custom embellishments. Masks for painting and misting.
I can also design my own images or download from other generous people on the internet who have made their own designs.
I can imitate all those cool punches out there for a fraction of the cost of a punch.
I don't have to buy cartridges.
I think it's so cool that I can take one design and make it as big or as small as I'd like it. Cut it from patterned paper or cardstock or vinyl or heat tranfser paper.
I can make party favors. Envelopes. Tiny gift bags and boxes.
I make titles without having to worry about having enough letters. And I can cut them from any font on my computer. I don't have to buy anything for that!
I can buy custom designs from Silhouette for .75 or .99. Some of them made by big scrapbooking manufacturers that coordinate with other paper lines.
Ahhhhhhh. How I love it! Can you tell?
