I am super excited to show you my latest layout. You see...for months and months I've been ooohhhing and aaahhhing over all the ADORABLE paper piecing projects that are out there. However, I only had the Cricut so I had no way to create them. That is until my super thoughtful sweetie gave me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas. And oh my... it is AMAZING! It has opened up a whole new world of paper crafting. Here is my first paper piecing layout and boy am I hooked. :)
This cute little teddy and rock girl out fit are created from svg files from Treasure Box Designs. You can visit them HERE. All other cuts are from the Silhouette online store. They are very similar to images found on various Cricut cartridges.
I can't say enough about how much fun I had doing this cute little teddy paper piecing. One of the things I am most impressed with is how the Silhouette cuts such small details. See the skull on the teddy's outfit...those cross bones and teeth are very small and slender. It cut them Beautifully. It even cut them perfect on my cheap black cardstock and that is Amazing!
Now you are probably wondering if I will continue to post projects made on the Cricut? All I can say is...when I received my Silhouette...I had my mind set that I would utilize it along with my Cricut. I planned to use what cartridges I already owned, but would not purchase new cartridges. However, I am finding that I love the ease of cutting from files on my computer vs hunting for the right cut on a cartridge. It is much easier and more time effective than I thought it would be. For now...I will keep my Cricut and see how much I use it. If I find that it never gets used I will probably sell it. The good news is...with the exception of paper piecings...you will be able to use your Cricut and cartridges to recreate most any project I do. :)
