Digital Die Cuts

Ok, I have owned the Quickutz Silhouette for a long time and the poor thing has been dusted more than It has been used.  I figured I should probably try it again and see if I really would use it or if it needed to go to the auction block on ebay. I openend the program and went in to take a look at their online store since I still had some credit on my download card..well, I took a look at all the new things they have added and felt myself go dizzy trying to decide which designs I needed, do I choose the flowers, the holiday items, the animals, the frames ...oh dear ..I could see that at $1.99 each my credit was not going to last very long...Then I saw it...
 Than means that instead of $29.99 a month, I could get all the downloads I wanted for just $14.99 a month. Dan was sleeping on the couch, still recovering from his injured back, so I nabbed his wallet and got his debit card and I DID IT!!!
(Dan is aware of my purchase and didn't mind at all)
Ok, now, it only took me 2 hours to find all of the existing designs that I wanted and when I was done adding them all to my shopping cart the price I would have paid would have been over $380......Now that to me is a good day shopping when I can get that and more for my $15  monthly subscription......and I didn't even have to leave the house.
Ok now that I have a library full of digital die cuts I should probably think about using them right? I decided  my mission for today was to do just that. I found a couple of their print and cut designs, which are so cool cuz you send the image to your printer, then when it is done printing, you put it into the silhouette and it cuts the image out too!! No messing with different colored papers, just plain old white and wham bam, you have a colored die cut!! I am so impressed that I think I will have to go back into the store and download a few more of these. Did I mention I loved Shopping?
Well, I did manage to make a couple of things and they are pretty cute if I may say so myself.

This is also for the Belli Challenge #76
Autumn Leaves

So, I will keep this little gem, and I will be visiting the online store the first of each week (they add new designs every week) adding to my digital library.
I Hope you all have a great week end, and that you discover a wonderful use for something that has been collecting dust in your home or life this coming week.
