    Love those trees! Have considered a Silhouette but since I’m a Mac user I’ve hesitated….think I’ll check out the vendor you mentioned (Oh My Crafts) and see what they’ve got, maybe I’ll take the plunge.
    BTW, great tutorial photos, very easy and clear directions. Nice work.

      Hi Peggy, I am on Mac too! I thought that is why we want silhouette because they have a Mac version. There will be a Illustrator plugin for Lion 15th this month. Before that I am using Robomaster in Paralleled Desktop Windows:)
