Handy Tools For Paper Crafting Needs!

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Okay, so now that we have received these wonderful new Die Cutting Machines for Christmas, do we have the right tools that will enable us to use them to their best capacity? I’m not talking dies or image cards, because we all know that we have to have those. I’m talking about the tools that will enable us to pick up and place tiny images once they are cut out, or scrap them off of our cutting mat without tearing them up!

Yes, I am talking about Accessory tools! Did you receive a Letterpress Combo or Starter Kit? Then the L-LP-ACC-TOOLS Accessory Tool Kit will help make the letterpress process easier and more efficient!

For the Silhouette Cameo you will love having TOOL-01 Hook, TOOL-03 Spatula and TOOL-04-IND Pick Me Up tool to help you remove your die cuts from your cutting mat!

The 0949 Slice Tool Kit is a must have for all of you Slice users -Fits perfectly in the SLICE Signature Series Handbag!
-Tool kit includes – 15 pieces:
-reusable storage case, spatula, craft knife, paper piercer, scissors, 5 replacement blades with replacement tool, 6″ metal ruler, bone folder, tweezers and scraper.

This just gives you an idea of some of the tools we carry to help make things a bit easier for you in your projects. We have other handy tools with other manufacturers. Just click on Accessories under the Brand/Category and look for the tools! Easy!

I hope that you are enjoying your new machines and dies! I can’t wait to set up my new Silhouette Cameo! Once all my kids go home from the holidays I will have time to play! That is my New Year’s resolution!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Making Memories Slice Fabrique Design Cards

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Many of you have posed the question; “Can you use regular design cards with the Slice Fabrique Machine by Making Memories?”. You can, although the regular design cards are created for paper and therefore more intricate. The more intricate the design, the more problems you will have cutting on fabric!

That is why Making Memories has created the Slice Fabrique machine and Design Cards specifically made for fabric! All design cards can be used with either the Fabrique or Elite machines, but it is recommended that you use images that are user friendly with the type of material you are using.

The Fabrique Design Cards are designed with quilters and fabric crafters in mind. We have included videos on each of these!

Tis the Season design card has popular holiday shapes as well as a festive alphabet.  Available in 1″ to 4″ in 1/2″ increments. It includes the piecing feature. This allows you to cut each piece of a shape individually (up to 4″) so you can build larger creations by assembling each die-cut piece together.

Playtime is geared toward all things kid! It to is available in 1″ to 4″ in 1/2″ increments
and includes the piecing feature. This allows you to cut each piece of a shape individually (up to 4″) so you can build larger creations by assembling each die-cut piece together.

Little One has an adorable alphabet for baby as well as all your favorite baby shapes! Like the others, it is available in 1″ to 4″ in 1/2″ increments and includes the piecing feature. This allows you to cut each piece of a shape individually (up to 4″) so you can build larger creations by assembling each die-cut piece together.

Here is a look at the Fabrique Accessories as well that work for the Slice Elite. We sell the tool kit that includes ALL!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Vinyl Cutting Machines!

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Vinyl is used so much these days for many things such as banners, signs, car windows, and especially home decor! The great thing is that we can create our own vinyl decor right in the comfort of our own home with our own personal vinyl  cutter! Silhouette America and Making Memories have made this possible with their fantastic machines that cut vinyl lettering or designs quick and easy!

Up to now we have been carrying the Silhouette SD which has been a wonderful machine, but now we are introducing the Silhouette Cameo which will be replacing the Silhouette SD. The Silhouette Cameo is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 12″ wide and 10 feet long. The machine also boasts a quiet motor and the ability to register and cut printed materials. WOW!

The Silhouette CAMEO ships with the following important items:

Silhouette electronic cutting tool
Silhouette Studio® software for Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 and higher
51 exclusive cuttable designs
Power cable, USB cable
12″ cutting mat
Cutting blade
$10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store
basic instruction guide
*Please note this is a special order item and cannot be returned or refunded. This item will be available in October 2011! We are accepting pre-orders for this item now.

Making Memories Slice Elite Cordless Digital Design Cutter in the color BLUE has a hardware upgrade allowing the ELITE to cut more precise, 40% faster and twice as deep. Cut textured cardstock, vellum, vinyl, acetate, foam sheets, thin metal sheets and photos up to 1mm thick. Cut 1 inch to 4 inch designs in 1/2 inch increments anywhere on any size media. Scroll through hundreds of designs with the push of a button; a large 2 inch window allows a preview of the shapes before cutting. Slice Elite weighs less than 2 pounds, measures less than 5 inch square and works with batteries or power cord.

Kit includes Slice Elite machine, Basic Elements design card & booklet, 6X6″ inch glass cutting mat, 5 blades, blade replacement tool & adjustment wrench, power cord, repositionable adhesive, foam brush, user manual and quick start guide. Works with all Slice design cards and accessories.

*Also available in PINK!
**International Customers: For those who live in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and South Africa, you will need to purchase this item from a local retailer, as your power source is not compatible with the US model! Using an adapter will void the warranty!

I have had great responses when I talk to owners of the Silhouette Machine and Slice Design Cutter. If you do not own one of these machines, don’t worry, you can also cut vinyl with manual machines, it just takes more time and patience! Most manufacturer dies can cut vinyl in manual crank die cutting machines. Here is a die cutting machine comparison on ALL machines.

I hope this post has been helpful if you are in the market for a personal vinyl cutting machine!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Arriving Soon! Heartfelt Creations Decorative Basket Collection!

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Heartfelt Creations artists are once again bringing us another outstanding collection which includes five gorgeous stamp sets with coordinating die! The Decorative Basket Collection is expected to start shipping next week! It is sure to be a favorite!

The stamps that are included in the Decorative Basket Collection are:

Decorative Basket

Woven Basket

Botanical Floral Basket

Basketweave Background

Belated Birthday Wishes

The exclusive Spellbinders die made just for Heartfelt Creations that coordinate with this stamps set is the HCD 714 Decorative Layered Basket Die.  It includes 3 dies.

Approximate Die Sizes:

1. Decor Basket: 3 1/2 x 2 3/4″
2. Layer Basket: 3 7/8 x 2 7/8″
3. Leaf Spray: 1 3/4 x 1 3/8″

I was inspired yesterday while reading Tim Holtz‘s Blog. He mentioned that one way he gets past a creative block is to organize! He finds stuff he forgot about and becomes inspired! Well, I decided that my space could use a bit of tidying up, and I found some little things I had forgot about that I  could use on my project for  today’s blog! I also used some of my brand new stuff that I have been dying to try!

I used the Decorative Layered Basket Die (available next week!) on my card below. I used the solid basket die to cut printed paper then used the decorative die to cut a marbled  card stock to layer. I did have to run the decorative die through my Cuttlebug Machine 2-3 times to make sure it cut through all the way as it is more intricate.

Other items used in this project were from Spellbinders and  Donna Salazar Creative Book Pages Two.  Paper from Teresa Collins World Traveler 6 x 6 paper pad. Flowers were made using the smallest flower and leaf from Heartfelt Creations Botanical Floral 2 then cutting with Spellbinders Rose Creations Die set. Other embellishments- mini brads, label from Making Memories, adhesive acrylic sentiment, sanding block for distressing embossed edges.

It was fun to go through and find stuff that was stashed away for a while! It felt like I had something new and it was already paid for! That’s always a good feeling!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Carrie
