Questions, comments, answers....

and a WINNER! Thanks to all of you who commented! The winner of the Slice Apron is Stephanie! Congratulations to you! Please email your address to me at and I'll get it right out to you! Also, to answer your question I LOVE my Slice! I love that it is battery operated and so portable. I love that you put the machine onto your paper instead of feeding your paper into it. That makes it so much easier to control where you cut. I think the design cards are an excellent value also. Some of them have up to 3 fonts plus more than 40 shapes! My personal favorite is Noteworthy. I use it often.

Shannon, I do think the Slice is worth the money. I have a Silhouette also and I enjoy it as well. I like the portability of the Slice over the Silhouette. I'm also very fond of Making Memories products so I enjoy being able to cut their popular label and flower shapes and embellish them as I wish. I hope that has helped! Feel free to email me if you have any other questions!

Denise from Ohio. I totally understand your thoughts on the All in One Binder. I still use the old zip-around binders and I have a few of the magnetic books. Veronica has a very personalized take on storage. Check out how she does hers:

Veronica used the Quickutz Vinyl to cut the letters and adheres them to the back of the die. For her singlekutz shapes she cuts the shape itself out but for the doublekutz dies she prints a photo from the Quickutz website then adheres them to the back of the die using a shim. How clever?! Then she stores them in the Quickutz 2x2 die storage sheets. Organization and storage is always at the top of the "how to" list so over the next few weeks we'll continue to show you various ways you can store your dies.

Yaritza, YES we will work on a tutorial for you and get that up shortly. In the mean time you can check out this video that Brenda did a while back on shading and using the white gel pen.

Jill, in case you missed the comment, here's the scoop on the scallop on the card Tammy made. The border in the middle card is just one piece of paper, she used the Threading Water border punch to make it. But you could always used two pieces like you said, a rectangle and the scallop border, that's a great idea!!

Whew! I hope that answered everyone! We should do this more often! If you have any other questions you can always leave them in the comments section or email me and we'll get you an answer!

Jenn has been playing with the new Silhouette software. She's really diggin' the new welding feature! Check out her great layout:

Isn't that border awesome?! You can learn how she did that here. She used the University font for her title. The welding feature is just great and it's really super simple! If you haven't tried it yet I encourage you to do so. And, when you're done email me a photo of your project and we'll include you on our "With us Wednesday" post (this goes for don't have to send a Silhouette project)!

Well, thanks for stoppin' by today! We'll be back here this Wednesday for another "With us Wednesday" post. See you then!
