Cut Work Book - Pages 44-53



Sketchbook 50

This book is for my collection of paper cuts. These were mainly designed on my tablet, transferred to the computer, then brought into 'Make the Cut' as a pixel trace and then cut with my cutting machine. The machine is a KNK Zing Air. I've used a variety of papers, cards and fabric. 

You may have noticed that I've not been posting recently, well it is because I have my daughter and family staying with me until they move into their new home. My 13th month old Grandson is sleeping in my studio and has two naps a day so I'm not getting much chance to do work or use my computer which is in the studio. Mind you I am having fun playing with him and I think I will miss them being here. They will not be that far away when they do move which is great.


Most of the tags are my own work, a few are from the MTC software



The red and black are fabric samples

I cut fun foam with the machine to use for stamping
