As I was putting together a new page today, I was not loving all the right angles, and was thinking that a round picture was in order, but I hate imperfection in my pages, and I can’t hand cut a circle that matches my standards. What to do, what to do?
Then I remembered that I bought a circle cutting lash up from Creative Memories a few years ago that I don’t think I ever actually used. Hmmmmm. Wonder what I did with it? I was thinking that I always say that in spite of the apparent mess in my workroom, I pretty much know where everything is, and was wondering if I was going to have to amend that. Then it popped into my head, and I literally went right to it without having to dig through anything! Sometimes I amaze even myself.
So, here’s the deal. There are 3 wheels, 3 color-coded cutting tools, and a guide for figuring out which one to use for each size circle, plus a self adhesive cutting mat.
I figured there would be a learning curve, but I hate to practice, so I just jumped in and did it, deciding if I messed up, I just wouldn’t use that photo (I know lazy logic, but what can I say?)
Anyway, it worked pretty darn well. I ended up with a circular picture and 2 mats – no swearing at all.
Yay, Creative Memories! And I got a “new” toy without spending a nickel. That’s how I roll. Which makes me wonder how many other “new” toys I have that I’ve forgotten about?
So, here’s the latest page. I like how the circle cut out worked – it made for an interesting element.
I’m really feeling good about how much I’m accomplishing on this album. Pretty sure without AEDM and the mild pressure to produce it creates I wouldn’t be doing NEARLY as well!
Today I’m feeling grateful for life. For waking up every morning ready to enjoy a new day and all the blessings that go with it. I know it’s kinda general, but I’m just feeling so content with my life right now. It’s not perfect. But it’s good. Really good. I wish every one was so fortunate.
