Poppin' the Cherry

For Christmas the one thing I really, really wanted was a crafty cutter. A Silhouette, to be exact. When I opened up that big box from my Mom on Christmas morning I was ecstatic thinking of all of the beautiful things I could make with it....

Like these gorgeous, vinyl coasters from the Goodey Knot:


And this awesome, personalized subway art at Tatertots and Jello:


And how about these adorable onesies from Pink Stitches:


As soon as we got back from Ohio Jason set up my Silhouette on our desk. He knew how excited I was to put it to use right away.... except that I didn't. 

I'm ashamed to say that my poor, little Silhouette sat abandoned for over three months. Collecting dust. Literally.
 
Until last night! Jason wanted to do something jokey for his boss and he needed my Silhouette's help. So, I dusted her off and fired her up. And I found out that it was pretty easy to use. Much easier than I thought. I think the main reason that my crafty cutter sat unused for so long was that I was just afraid to use it. If I had only given myself a half hour of my spare time to figure out how to use her, I would've been pleasantly surprised at her user-friendliness.

So, my friends, as of today my Silhouette is no longer a virgin! I popped her cherry and I couldn't be happier.

I went out and bought some vinyl and transfer paper from Hobby Lobby and I'm hoping that I'm inspired soon to use it on an awesome project!

Who knows, maybe I'll even link up with Amanda's Craft Cutter Party in April! :)
