My New Toy & First Project


Well, after much research, I caved and bought a Silhouette SD. I know a larger version is coming out in October but my husband talked me into purchasing the smaller version now. I got it for 40% off so that sweetened the deal. (Looks like he will be able to cut his paper models that he designs on this.) He's super sweet telling me that I can get the Cameo if I want and he'd use the smaller version! Works for me! :)
The main reason why I wanted this was their Print & Cut feature. I love the idea that I can use graphics that I design or the awesome files out there from super talented artists to P&C. I have a Cricut Imagine and for now I will be keeping it since I have invested a large amount in it. As for my anniversary edition of the Expression, I will be selling that one since I don't use it often. I'm keeping my older E so that I can use the Sure Cuts A Lot software on it. (I'm not planning on updating it.)
Well without further ado....here's my first P&C project using the Lettering Delights Birthday Fishes file. I LOVE the way it came out! The waves were cut from my E so I haven't totally abandoned it!

As part of TGIF, I'm going to link this up to Craft Junkies TGIF linky party! Also, Creative Cutter is having a Splish Splash Waves of Summer Challenge and Cher's Studio This To That Tuesday Side Step Challenge.

Have a great weekend!! Hope you enjoy my card!!
