WOYWW #233 - I Heart my Silhouette Portrait


Only 2 more WOYWW's until Turkey Day for us US based peeps!!

If you don't know what WOYWW is - then where have you been?! It's the day that we crafty folk get to join Julia over at her fab blog Stamping Ground and have a global desk nose..join in!

So this week is a the main photo you can see my Silhouette Portrait on my desk, busy cutting away (on Tues night)..the bright pink things were cut out shortly before..

In the next photo are the bows that are the end result of my cutting frenzy..the sequins are there as I had made my Mojo Monday entry using them (and a bow) but I can't show you that until Thurs!

I love these bows and I have Liz at Pink Petticoat to thank, as she has a Lil Inker bow die (comes in 3 sizes) that she uses and I have been converting... but I decided to go for a Silhouette cut file instead :)

Happy WOYWW...tonight is TACO night here in NYC.



  1. I have been eyeing these types of machines of late, the Brother Cut'n'Scan looks good too. I seriously have to win the lottery to be able to keep up with my wants in the craft/art area lol!! Your bows look so cute! Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving and happy WOYWW from the other side of the world here in Australia!!

  2. All the best for Thanksgiving! Hope it goes well! I love those little bows! I also like the idea of a cutting frenzy! I've been into Frantage lately on my projects as I prepare for Christmas, so with your permission, I'll steal your phrase and adapt to 'Frantage Frenzy'! Julie Ann xx #29

  3. I am so bad. I got a machine a few years ago but rarely have used it. Peg #46

  4. Mmmm tacos. Meanwhile back in the land of no tacos, I'm enjoying your enjoyment of the silhouette. Love the bows, very cute. Hurry and show will ya?

  5. Good on you for using your cutter! I've got a Pazzles that is upstairs and I suspect very, very lonely!
