Playing with my NEW Silhouette

I must admit, before my friend bought her Cricut and showed me what it could do, I ignored all the talk about the Silhouette and all other electronic die cutting machines. At Christmas, she showed me her new purchase and I thought - I NEED ONE OF THOSE! How could I have gone on so long without one! Don't get me wrong, I will still use my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies, but where else can you get the frame and border below for 99 cents a piece and use it whenever you want, cut it in big sizes, and change up the colour when you want?

I made the layout below for Silhouette's Winter Games they have going on (a contest to win $50 in downloads) and I WANT to win it! This layout was done under 1 hour (for the Speed Scrapping contest). Of course, you'll see lots of Prima on this page too, one of my fave companies.

I stickled almost everything on page once I was done, even that beautiful red Prima flower.
TIP: Using Core'dinations cardstock with your die cutting machine allows you to sand it and distress it after you've cut your shape.

Gorgeous! I haven't been able to get my Silhouette to work since I upgraded my computer last summer. After seeing the new shapes available, I just HAVE to get it going!
