You will LOVE it. There are so many new things I'm learning about it already, and I already thought it was awesome to begin with Grin

I was using my new Silhouette machine and used the sketch feature and it drew these gorgeous flowers. I decided to add some gems to make it more girly and fem. than it already was. TFL.

I just made these cards this morning and thought they would be nice to give as a gift. Wanted to get everyone's opinion, would this be better as valentines or maybe just a nice note to leave someone. TFL

Scor-tape would also work really well, and its really inexpensive ($5 for 27 yards!). Here is where I get mine http://papertreyink.com/acc_adhesives_scortape.html, and I know other places carry it as well. Also A plus for me when using this is you can tear the tape off the roll, you don't have to use scissors. Smiley

HELLO!! My name is Megan and I have an addiction, of making cards. Grin
I do make a TON of cards and even altered projects using my supplies. I actually started out as a scrapbooker (which I still dabble in) but just found it very time consuming with editing and taking pictures, etc.

I have a Crop-a-dile and I don't know how I lived without it when I was using eyelets. Its quiet, easy to use, and I don't have to use a TON of pressure to use it. Also I've used it to cut extra belt- holes and it cut the leather like buttah Cheesy

I found this site which may help you out:

and also a video explaining the Crop-a-dile and how to use it

Papertrey Ink has a ton of stamp sets and also misc. supplies such as custom papers and inks,  and even nestabilities (which I love).

I love Papertrey Ink and Cosmo Cricket. Sasafrass Lass is always really fun.

For cardstock Papertrey Ink and American Crafts top my list.

I got my Silhouette last month and I love it! I couldn't be happier with it. It came with a 6 month free download card, and then your other 6 months are given to you half price.  Shocked You can cut almost anything (thicker cardstock you may have to go over, but this is REALLY simple to do) and they also have 2 other options; Print and Cut, and sketch.

Print and Cut: This is where you choose your images and get it situated and print them on a regular printer, then you load that paper into the Silhouette and it cuts your images. And the best part is you can also make your own.

Sketch: They are making new images just for this feature and you simply insert a special sketch pen and instead of cutting the image it will draw it for you.

Silhouette is also constantly coming up with new features and now they have a rhinestone program out, where you use special images and you use transfer paper and put the image on a card, clothing etc. and easily decorate it with rhinestones.

I'm not sure how this machine compares to others, but the only downside I could see is that it doesn't cut 12x12 which may be a downside for scrapbookers. Although I scrapbook, I don't use this size so it really isn't a problem for me. I'm not sure if you have checked out their blog, but its great and shows all the features better than I could describe. http://silhouettemachine.blogspot.com/

I hope this helps and has answered any questions you may have. SOrry for the wordy response.  Cheesy
