Good Morning Lori
What tool would I order at this very moment if money was no object - well
the KNK flat bed cutter would be the item

Thank you for the cute cupcake
Happy Anniversary

Anna October 16, 2010 at 12:27 AM  

Happy Birthday to you on your first year with Chris.
Gosh if money was no object what would I buy...I think I would buy the biggest most powerful cutting machine they made. Or that scrapbox storage cabinet or two. ;o) Thank you so much for the awesome files.

Carol October 16, 2010 at 1:05 AM  

What a cute cupcake border! Thank you. If money weren't an object, I think I would buy a bind it all or a great organizing system for all my stuff I already have - course it would need to come with a professional organizer so it would get utilized the most effectively.

Pam October 16, 2010 at 1:43 AM  

Thanks for the free file. I guess I would purchase another KNK Maxx.

cropangel October 16, 2010 at 7:16 AM  

if money was no object right now I would like a bigger cutter that cuts 12 inch. that is the first thing on my list


Lisa Avolio October 16, 2010 at 7:27 AM  

Beautiful file! I know I will use this one. We've eaten lots of cupcakes through the years.
I would buy a better cutter if I had the money. My Cricut Expression works great, but I fear that they will sometime block it from using the 3rd party software.
I'd also get a binding tool- BindItAll or Cinch.

Heather K,  October 16, 2010 at 7:34 AM  

If money was no object I would purchase two things right away that I have been desiring: a 12x12 color printer and Tim Holtz's new portable carry along sizzix machine. I know I can cut anything I need with my gazelle, but it is just so cool looking and he has some great embossing dies to go with it.

Kelly S October 16, 2010 at 7:36 AM  

Thanks for the super cute cupcake borders. They are wonderful! Today's questions is easy. If I had the money, I would buy a Klic-n-Kut cutter right this very second. Don't get me wrong, I love my little blue Wishblade. It runs like a champ, but I would love to be able to cut 12" items and thicker materials. It is on my Christmas wish list.

Unknown October 16, 2010 at 9:28 AM  

I would purchase a gypsy. No doubt about it

Love the borders. TFS

Hmmm... not really a tool but help using a tool... I would buy a plane ticket/hotel to the very next available KNK retreat so I could learn to use my cutter better!! (that counts as a tool right?!?!?!)
TFS love your files!! Already went and took advantage of the wonderful deal!!

Esther W-B October 16, 2010 at 11:30 AM  

Thanks for the cupcakes Lori! If money (and space) were no object, I'd get the big KNK flatbed cutter.

Kathy Serrahn,  October 16, 2010 at 11:36 AM  

Thanks for the file.
If I could afford it I would probably get a 12+ cutter.

Anonymous,  October 16, 2010 at 11:43 AM  

I'd get a Maxx to go with my cutter collection. LOL

Thanks for the very cute file!

From Renae

Thanks for the cute cupcake border! If money were no object, I would upgrade my KNK Element to a newer model with flat beds, or just get the flat beds for my current model. Hmmmm, or maybe pay for the construction of the perfect crafting room. Too hard to imagine as it isn't going to happen until a get two kids off to college. LOL

Lori Happy Anniversary with Chris! The cupcake border is delicious--and with 0 calories and GF! The tool thing--I'm thinking I'd like either a BIA or Cinch, don't have one of those but also I'd love to get a storage thing like the Scrapboxt or be able to make my "studio" room very organized with countertops, cabinets etc--and a professional designer/organizer to help me put it all together!

KathyB October 16, 2010 at 1:12 PM  

The first thing that popped into my head was the Bind-It-All so that would have to be my answer! I am just starting to play with word books and such so this would be a great tool to have. Love your site and Happy Birthday on your first year with Chris!

Ginger (Games) October 16, 2010 at 2:22 PM  

Yummy cupcakes, glad they won't go to my already thick waste, lol!

Now to answer your question #2, I'd buy the other things to go with my Xyron Creatopia, embossing folders, and go to a retreat. OK that was more than one but I have big wants and dreams. :-)

Michelle Pluess,  October 16, 2010 at 4:30 PM  

What scrapbooking tool would I buy?

Hmmmmmm....I would have to say the e-craft. You can never have too many cutting machines.


Cherbear October 16, 2010 at 5:36 PM  

Thank you for the cupcake file. If money were no object I would love to have a custom designed scrapbook/craft workspace.

Elizabeth October 16, 2010 at 6:20 PM  

Great file Lori, thanks a ton :)
Now if money was not an object the one tool/item I would buy right at this moment would be a Cricut Imagine. I think they are really neat and want one.

momof5 October 16, 2010 at 9:14 PM  

Oh it would be a KNK if money was no object.

Sandra from NC October 16, 2010 at 9:46 PM  

Oh - I'd love to have the flat beds for my KnK too but I'd also love to have an unlimited budget to "remodel" my scraproom:-D.

TonyaKaye,  October 16, 2010 at 9:55 PM  

Happy Anniversary and I love the cute cupcake file.

As for a tool(s), I would like to purchase more of the tools for the Gazelle, such has then embossing tool or possibly even the upgrade to the software.

stefeni October 17, 2010 at 1:23 AM  

Cute cupcake borders! If money wasn't a problem I'd buy me a new cutting machine. Provocraft is taking way too long to give me a new cricut. Maybe try out some of those other cutting machines?

PattiG,  October 17, 2010 at 8:20 AM  

I would buy a Cougar cutting machine!!
