Happy Spring!!

I'm really enjoying my Cameo cutting machine.  It's so fast and I love the details I can cut now.

These projects were made using files from the Silhouette store and the DCWV paper stack called The Delightful stack, and it is just that!! I'm using it on so many projects.

Sweet little treat holders, I am saving these for Emily's Easter basket, she didn't see me making them so we are good with the surprise.  
I'm big on saving negative cuts and most of the time I talk myself out of it and throw them out but when I pulled these cards off the mat I couldn't throw the pieces left behind away.
This is what I got for keeping them, how cute right?
I had a few issues with placement, I think I had my mat too far to the left.  That is my main complaint with this machine, there's no place to push the mat against to make sure it's in the right spot so sometimes I end up off the edge of my paper.
But it still worked, I cut the card front off of this card and just glued it to another card I made.
And this one I just added a piece of green paper to make it look like part of the design.  See, even when you make a mistake it's usually fixable! That my friends is why I love paper crafting!!

Thanks for stopping by, I love your comments!!
