My Heart Skipped a Bit

Wohoo! My Silhouette Cameo will be here in a few months form today, that may be a long wait but it will be here soon. :) It just excites me because finally I will be able to play with it.

Because I am too excited, I asked Joy's for advice. And she was so sweet and accommodating to provide me information about getting started and about FAQ's about the Cameo.

I asked her first about getting started about the machine. And fortunately she has few articles about it. And if you want to know them too, you can click on this LINK. Thanks Joy!

The next thing I wanted to know is if I can play with the free software before I get it, and YES, Joy said. The  software can be downloaded HERE.

She even shared to me a 3rd party software that will enable me to import other .svg cuts. She introduced me to Make the Cut. You can check it HERE too.

And on the way to discovering other fab items about the Cameo and .svg files, I came across Lettering Delights. And Oh my G! The products are so cute. And what's more fun about this site is they will give you A LOT of freebies once you sign up.

Here are some screen shots on what you will get:

What do you think? Thanks again to Joy's! Enjoy!

Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Expression 2?

Hello guys!

If you have read my previous posts, I am very decided on the Cricut. But now, my heart is again torn with the Expression 2 and the Silhouette Cameo.

It will be very much appreciated if you could help me decide on what to get?

Please share your thoughts and experiences on using both machines.

I love the fact that the Cameo does need cartridges to work, that is very convenient, though it is a little expensive than the Cricut Expression 2. But the Cricut images are so adorable and very cute, perfect for projects for kids. I just want to know, are there websites where I can find pretty images as well? Like Disney characters and wedding images?

Since I haven't owned any of the machines, how about it's ease of use? The noise level? Any opinions on any aspects of the machines are highly appreciated.

Have a great weekend!

Final Decision. And it's FINAL

Hello there!

Finally I decided what to get to start paper crafting. Here are the items on my list:

Cricut Expression with Potpourri Cartridge and Accessories | $189.00 from Amazon

Sizzix 17- Piece Texture Boutique Value Kit | $39.45 from Amazon
Cricut 7-Piece Tool Kit for Cricut Machines | $9.99 from Amazon
Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge | $32.76 from Amazon
A total of $269.84, Php11,063 (1dollar to 41peso conversion). That will be my final list and hopefully my first purchase for paper crafting. I decided to get from Amazon since they offer free shipping to US address. You may be wondering how will this save me (because I am from the Philippines). It will, I found a way how to get it sooner and cheaper. I will be sharing with you the details once I get these BABIES on hand.

So what do you think? Did I make the right decision?

I hope you'll keep posted to see my progress. I am so much excited to do paper crafts ASAP.

Why I Love to Get the Pink Cricut Expression

Hello guys!

I don't have my Cricut yet, actually I haven't ordered one yet. I am still looking for someone who can order for me from the US and send it to me thru FedEx or LBC. This kind of shipment is way cheaper than the retail store sending it directly to the Philippines. Of course, I will pay for all the expenses. So if you know of someone who can do it for me, please let me know.

But today, I will be sharing features of the Pink Cricut Expression that I am planning to purchase. I am actually torn between getting the Reconditioned Cricut Expression or this bundle from

The main reason why I would love to get this edition is because it's PINK, period.

Other great features of the machine are: (information taken from

Pink Cricut Expression with Pink Journey, Accent Essentials, and Plantin Schoolbook cartridges
Make your crafts impressively expressive.
Whether you’re designing a scrapbook of your family vacation or making 200 wedding invitations for your best friend, the Cricut Expression® easily ensures your creative possibilities are truly endless.
Larger than the Cricut® Create or the Cricut® Personal Electronic Cutter, the Cricut Expression® precisely cuts letters, shapes, and motifs in impressive sizes using the 12" x 24" mat or the 12" x 12" mat. You can also create bigger die cuts for classroom decor, scrapbook layouts, signage, and so much more.
Buy your Cricut Expression® today and start exploring the depths of your creativity.
Includes the Pink Journey Solutions cartridge, Plantin SchoolBook font cartridge, and the Accent Essentials® shape cartridge.

And what's tempting about this featured product is it comes with 2 12 x 24 cutting mats and two 12 x 24 New Decor Vinyls for $199.99. How amazing is that!

Cricut® Vinyl Rose Pink

New Decor Vinyl from Decor Basics comes in two 12" x 24" sheets per pack. These adhesive-backed sheets of 3 mil vinyl are available in a range of colors for trendy home decor, window signage, and crafting! 

Cricut® 12 x 24 Cutting Mats

By Provo Craft®. 2 mats per package, the Cricut® cutting mat has a tacky surface to hold paper in place. Using both mats allows you to cut one thing while working on another. Mats last 25-40 full mat cuts depending on paper used. Never try to use a spray adhesive with these mats or your Cricut® machine. Doing so would void its warranty.

If you want to check this deal, you can visit for more information.

Since this machine is very versatile and brings your imagination to life, this is definitely a crafter's dream. And I have been dreaming to have this the day I saw it!
