scherenschnitte. paper cutting. old. german. hand-cut. very, very, very cool. this of course is not hand-cut. thank you silhouette cameo!

the first time i saw this file was when erica shared it after she found it on cindy’s site. cindy’s site is amazing. her freebies are amazing. i want to do this one next. it’s been in my mind for a while to make this one but i don’t have the patience to do this by hand. i like to cut paper, but not like this. plus, this is the exact reason why i purchased a cameo. a little design manipulation of any freebie file (i used pS & illustrator) and you can pretty much cut anything that someone else decides to share. (just use it for yourself though.)

best part? i had two after cutting, a positive & the negative which meant that i was able to hang one in the bean’s room and one in tLm’s. love that.

happy monday!

JBS october gallery update






i got a new toy over the weekend. i have to tell you, i’m hooked. saturday night i played around with some practice cut and watching a few in depth cameo lessons online. sunday was a super lazy day around here and i spent a few more hours out in the studio cutting and pasting and putting together the five layouts above. i’ve you’ve been on the fence i’m giving you a little push. you won’t regret it, promise. i kept saying i didn’t need one, i scrapped just fine without alot of the extra bells and whistles of a die-cut machine. but see that silhouette schoolboy above? old kR stamp image. knowing now what i can do & that i can turn any clip-art or designs i love into a cut file? love!!

if you have one and want to share any fav shops or places you get clip art i’d love to hear where you get them. ;)

happy monday!
