I am very excited, as today I bought a Joy Trouvaille cutting and embossing machine from Crafty Ideas by Kaz. It cuts card etc up to A4 size. I have had a play tonight and it is brilliant! Very smooth cutting action and a removeable handle, that can be stored in a compartment on the top of the machine. It is similar to the Cuttlebug, in as much as it has a tray both sides of the machine to support the boards and has a suction action, to attach it to a table top. I will let you know how I get on with it over the weekend.
Well the weather is going to be awful and I cleaned the house yesterday, so I can craft all weekend, without feeling guilty!!
The frame was cut with Nestabilities and the image was painted with Distress Inks. I must get my Copics out again sometime! I love the footprint stamp, this one will be well used. Great fun and not only for Christmas.
At the bottom right hand side of the gate there is a mouse hole. It is not very clear, but I stamped one of the mice that are on the left of the gate, cut it out and poked his face and scarf through the hole! I just couldn't resist it!
The big snowflakes are Nestabilities and the small ones are the Cuttlebug die.
Thanks for visiting and have a crafty weekend.
