uscutter machines and Amy Chomas tools

 just not getting to the blog as much as I would like. today this blog is for a Dear lady Amy Chomas,. I had sent her what the company of the us cutter MH series  machines refers to as a pen tool, sad it is a small metal tube like tool but you have to use only the insides of an ink pen and some styles just don't work. well we emailed a few time with sizing and she goes do you think that the sharpie holder for the cameo we have designed  would fit? I was not sure but willing to give it a try and here are the results using both Make-the-cut and Sure Cuts a Lot. if you have a us cutter machine and would like to uses any sharpie and or pen contact Amy at her site here: and she will be happy to help you with your purchase of the pen tool for the us cutter. machines. I used both MTC and Scal to show that the MH-871 can be used with either program.

3D sardine shaped box with pull top

Hi I  thought 
I would share my photo of my latest play. Idea came from seeing a sardine shaped flat card. I thought to myself this would make a great gift box and they would have to open it by pulling the tab and the top opens like a can and we have some simple challenges going on on the Blackcatus forum the theme of today's was do something the use flowers in some way well I incorporated them to my box. and this is what I came up with.
