The new addition to the family....

Okay.... on Wednesday we had a special delivery.....
My new craft-robo....!!!
For 2 days I hated it...It was complicated, and noisy, and not at all user friendly......
But then I figured out how to create my own shapes to cut, and I'm starting (slowly) to warm to it....
Check out this cute wedding couple....

My new little robotic friend cut out all the little peices for me...and I attached them together... then decorated with a bit of doodling (naturally!) and my new AQUATONE watercolour pencils... which are brilliant by the way, 100% watercolour..no wood in the pencils, so they last ALOT longer!!

Cute hey?

Where did you get the craft robot from? Would it cut the items on the decoupage sheets? Anything to save my poor hand!

Paula said...

Hi Kelly...

eBay!!!!

What is the robot actually called? I'll try anything to save my poor hand from cutting with scalpels! Anyone with any other tricks to cutting out?

its called the graphtec craft robo... I got mine for £245 off ebay...but I think its really tricky to use, i don't think it would be easy to get it to cut the sheets out, (I still use scissors!)

but its good for alphabets, and if i want a unique shape cutting, like for the sunshine in my card for Antonia.
