Since I fell in love nearly two years ago with Svg cuts, I really needed to make some of their kits. If you take a look at their page you see all the different items, made with such love and details. Its simply amazing what this wonderful couple built in just a few years. Recently (2013) they won the Martha Stewart American Made Audience Choice Award and they so deserve it.
Well as my addiction to their projects is quiete reasonable, the fact that I dont own a cutting machine isnt. Still, its too expensive for me to buy. Its about 350€ to start with and thats a massive amout for someone who just crafts for fun and friends (ok sometimes customers too, but its really rare :D ).
So I decided: use what you have!
I am a digital media designer so I went to my pc, tranformed the cutting data to an usable Photoshop data and worked with it. Needed to give color, seize and needed to fit to the other data. Then I needed to print all, hand cut it and used it as a paper template for the paper I want to use in the final project.
Its really quite a work but when you see the result, worth every minute!
I hope they dont mind that people work with their data, but not owning a cutting machine is quite a hell when you see the projects other people do with their machine. :(
Here are some projects that I want to show you, the caravan took me sooo long with fitting the seize in Photoshop!
