First Letterpress/Dye Cut Creation!

So sorry I haven't posted in a while...  all this schooling has kinda been taking up all my time.  And the little time that I do have left over, I've been trying to squeeze in some QT with the Hubster and Pendleton.  There just isn't enough hours in the day...  But I'm sure if there was a way for me to add more to it, even then there wouldn't be enough time to get all the things on my to do list done.

But since I can't change that, on to things worth talking about.  My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and the Hubster was super duper excited about the birthday present that he got me.  Waaaaaaay back in March, when I came home from the scrapbook convention, I told him I wanted a letterpress/dye cutting machine.  And since he's forgetful, he pretty much ordered one online that day.  So it had just been killing him to wait over 2 months for me to open my present.  But let me tell ya, I am so glad that he did, because I LOVE IT!! 

Thankfully, very soon after I opened my present, I had a card order come in, and I just couldn't make the card fast enough with the dye cutting machine. 

Super stoked to do a bunch of other stuff with this fun new toy.  I actually just got a wedding invite order, so that has been the other thing keeping me super busy...  but I can't show you all yet!!  The bride and I want to keep the invites a secret till they get mailed (since I'm close with the fam, it would totally ruin the surprise if I posted pictures.)  These invites use all my toys right now, I am SO excited.  Little bit of cricut, some cricut design studio, letterpressing, distressing inking, and so much more. 

Stay tuned!!
