What is your biggest challenge when it comes to cutting supplies and organization?

For a lot of people, it’s how to store the extra leftover cuts you don’t end up using in a project.

Do you struggle with where to put them? Or do you have a place for them, but find they never get used?

Maybe your biggest problem is that the cutting tools pull you out of your flow, so you don’t even use them much. Do you find that you neglect your electronic cutting machine, or your die cutting machine?

The reason could simply be that the location of these machines and their supplies breaks up your workflow.

So what is it for you?

When it comes to punches, die cutters and their dies, electronic cutters and their accessories, and all other related supplies including the leftover cut pieces, which of these gives you troubles?

Peppermint Die Cuts for a Birthday Party

I love using the Cameo Silhouette cutting machine! I used it to make the peppermint candies you see hanging against the wall. Then I took the sheet of white cardstock leftover from the smaller circles and used it for a scrapbook page, which I’ll share later.

Trinity had a small get-together with a handful of friends for her birthday, and since she danced the Marzipan scene in the Nutcracker last month, I went with a Marzipan ballet theme, focusing on peppermint.

The cut I used was Candy Peppermint Swirl by Samantha Walker (available in the Silhouette online store). I customized the cut because I didn’t want the twisted wrapper that was part of the original design.
