My new toy!

I am totally loving my new Cricut - I hooked it up to Sure Cuts a Lot pretty much straight away and now I can cut out whatever font from my computer that I like! I had collected quite a few free fonts anyway and already have a font manager so it was fairly easy to get started. It just makes creating titles so much quicker and easier and I'm sure I will experiment with cutting other shapes - there is a great page in Ashley Calder's book about this.

In the mean time, I thought I'd share with you some sneak peeks of the latest page I've been working on - this is for the Papermaze blog and instructions will be up in the next week or two.

I'm off for tea at the Ritz in London tomorrow for a friend's birthday - I will make sure to get lots of photos of us in our finery and share them on here when I get back. Hopefully, while I'm gone Ed is going to finish painting the bathroom - however, I made the mistake of buying him Grand Theft Auto IV for his birthday and he has hardly stopped playing it since!


  1. Loving that peek!!
    Enjoy the Ritz, we took my Mum there for her birthday a few years ago and it is utterly luxurious! You won't need to eat for the rest of the day that's for sure, they are excellent on refilling the plates!!

  2. I love the look of that title, must investigate!
