I love Pottery Barn....I look forward to getting the magazines and combing over everything! I can't afford to pay for anything in there and I get some sick thrill out of being able to copy their stuff!
Two years ago Nicole and I found their Halloween Advent calendar and said...we could totally make that. We spent many, many, many, hours hand cutting, printing number patterns from the computer (thanks Stephanie!), and gluing! It was worth it because it turned out so stinkin cute! Nicole added her cute touch to all the scary faces by free-hand cutting each one.
The next year, we decided to make the PB Christmas Calendar and heard through the grapevine that you can use die-cute machines to cut felt! Awesome! I went to the local scrapbook store and quickly cut numbers, letters, snowflakes and more! Neat trick!
Today, if I were to do it again I would use the Cricut machine! I'm not experienced with it yet, but from what I understand you can heat and bond material and cut out all sorts of goodies! It's just brilliant what they have now for crafting.
