Crafty Sketches put up the first sketch challenge on 1 Feb. So, head over there on that date and get some inspiration. The first sketch comes from Vanessa, and it is just beautiful! It is a very user friendly sketch. I got stuck into last night, and about midnight finished my inspiration layout for the sketch challenge. I am really happy with it. I used another photo from our family trip to Sydney.
For the first time last night I used the Fiskars Craft Knife Fingertrip Control. It was great!! You cut like you write. You put your finger through the holder thingy and then hold the knife like you would a pen. I did lots of fine cutting on the layout, and really quite enjoyed it using the Fiskars Craft knife. I just happened to see it one day at the local newsagent, and picked it up. I have had it for a few months, and tried it out last night for the first time. I usually use a pair of small very sharp scissors, but prefer this craft knife.
For all my other cutting needs, I just love the Doodlebug Craft Knife!! It is gorgeous to look at and cuts beautifully without any pressure being applied. Love it.
