We have our winners!!!

We have our winners for the "Welcome" wall words. Screaming MeMe and Julie. Email me your addresses, and I will get the "Welcome" in the mail. My email is wcollier1201@yahoo.com Several people asked about how I made them. I have a silhouette maker. I bought it from QVC several years ago. I think you can also check out www.quickutz.com to buy them. I buy all of my blades, vinyl paper, shapes etc. from them. This little machine is GREAT!!! It cuts out anything on your computer. Just type out what you want in the font you want it in, and hit cut. In a few short seconds, you have your image.
The cool thing about the silhouette maker, they have a website and you can go on and buy images. Here is just a few samples of what they have.
Here is a box that I purchased. You can make it small or large. Just use the arrows and make it the size you want. Load your paper and.....
a few short seconds later you have a box all cut out.
Fold and you have a cute little box. We are making these for the church Valentine's Party. 1 down, 79 to go.Tie with a ribbon and you have a nice little parting gift or a little something to place on each plate.

If you are interested in seeing how this machines works, I found these videos at youtube---

Congrats to the winners! I so want one of those machines. Hubby asks why I need all of these cricut and sticker maker machines...I ask him "Why do you need all of those power tools?" ;)

This is really cool. I've always wanted something like this. I love to create. I also have you a couple of awards on my blog. I don't know how to send them yet, so if you can come get them they are yours. Thanks, Debbie

Thanks, Wendy! I'm excited that I am one of your winners! Just a question, though....instead of "Welcome", can you make mine say "Go Away" ?

Thanks, Wendy. Actually the photo I took was of the package I sent to you. So now I know you at least like my giftwrap. :-) Have a great weekend sweetie!
