Happy New Year!

Well, I just had another birthday (Christmas Eve) and I love this quote from journalist Mary Schmich, “Like many women my age, I’m twenty-eight years old.” Hehe! DH surprised me completely with a gadget called the Klic-N-Kut Element. I had never even heard of it, but it is a personal die cutter. While I’ve never done scrapbooking, I can definitely see uses for a die cutter in altered art and collage work. Best of all, I can create my own images in any graphics program and import them into the machine. It will cut fabric, felt, foam, cardstock, vinyl, chipboard, etc., and will emboss metal. Here is an example of text I created in Corel and then imported to the Klic-N-Kut. It was cut from a metallic finished cardstock. This is definitely a fun little toy...
