Tell Me About It Tuesday - My Christmas Wish List

Can you believe that Christmas is just 18 days away? It just doesn't seem real to me. Of course, everyone has been talking a lot lately about what they want for Christmas. Initially, I wanted a Cricut machine - for crafting and scrapbooking but the more that I got to looking into it, I changed my mind. You have to continue to buy cartridges for it and there is an ongoing expense to owning that machine. Instead, I found the Silhouette SD machine. It's much like the Cricut machine, but you don't have to buy cartridges - it just plugs right in to your computer. That way, you can use all of the images and fonts that you currently have on your computer or whatever you can download from the internet. Neat, huh?

This is the Silhouette SD machine.

And this is some of the things that you can use it to make!

Vinyl lettering!

I want my front door to look like this!

You can even use it to embellish things you already have - like gift bags and boxes!

You can use it to make temporary tattoos, which happen to be a great way to "label" golf balls and small toys.

You can use it to make adorable cards.

And scrapbook pages!
It's more expensive than the Cricut, but I think it's totally worth the extra money! Instead of printing like a regular printer does, the laser cuts things out. I finally talked D into not exchanging Christmas gifts in lieu of putting money towards paying off our credit cards (again), so this might be on my wish list for awhile!
What do you want for Christmas?
