Elsie, Heidi, Slice, and Mojo

Not much going on this week, besides tags and registrations. No Fun! I'm stuck in a ditch, no make that a canyon. I need major inspiration. Usually, I would visit a few of favorite online galleries but I thought I would try something different. I ordered a few books Ive been wanting for a long time now. Elsie's 52 Scrapbooking Challenges, and Love your handwriting by Heidi Swapp. I cant wait for these to come in the mail. They both look awesome and even better they were on sale for $7.49 each at CK. Check it out if you want.

Have you guys heard of the newest Die Cutting release from Making Memories? Its called the Slice. Introduced at CHA and is expected to hit retail this summer. Its a small, portable machine and can be used with scrap paper. It going to be around $150 and they say it will be able to cut True type fonts from your computer. The con it only cuts up to 4 inches and in half inch increments. But for someone like me it seems pretty nice. I would mainly use this type of tool for titles and cutting simple shapes like circles, stars, journal tags etc. Will I buy one? Who knows. The cricut sounds nicer now that the SCAL software is out there. I'm not saying nicer than this product, but nicer than it did before. I would want to buy all those carts and that would be stupid. Want to see my latest pages, well sure you do......hehe......yeah I'm that bored!
