The ManFlesh does a lot of typing... so when I saw this pattern on svgcuts I had to get it. It's part of a Mother's Day set, but I only had to slightly modify it for it to be right for my guy!



Purple is his favorite color, so when I spotted this lavender (and pink) hearts paper in a Valentine pad, I new I'd found just the right thing! Making the "typing" on the paper romantic was the first step to de-Mother's Day-ing it. The rest of the papers and supplies came from stash!





There's a spot on the back for a sentiment, so using something mushy instead of something mom-y was the second way. The third was was removing some floral details from a few of the insert pieces and not cutting & adding other floral details.



And here it is folding flat and going into the envelope made for it.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Aren't these box cards clever that way? I'm really getting into them.

That is great; love the colours too.  I am glad you are enjoying your machine so much.  I have been thinking about getting the brother scan and cut or design and cut, but still am wiffle waffling about how much I room I would have to set that up.

Those machines sound super cool. I love the idea of being able to use something steadier than my hands to cut around something I've made.
