Silhouette Cameo – PixScan Mat

The PixScan mat is a new mat that can be used with the Silhouette Cameo.  If you have a page of embellishments that need to be cut out, for instance, you can put them on the mat, take a picture with your phone and import it into the Silhouette Studio software and then trace the embellishments to get a perfect cut around the edges without having to do it yourself with scissors or an x-acto knife.  I recently decided to give the pixscan mat a try for a different reason.  The Justin Timberlake VIP concert I went to came with a commemorative ticket which is double sided. I decided i would do a peek-a-boo window for the layout but last time I tried to cut it out myself I failed miserably.  So I placed the Justin ticket on the PixScan mat, imported it into studio, traced it and then offset it ever so slightly. I used that offset to cut out a window in the sheet of paper I was going to use for the layout. (The extra ticket shaped piece I also used for a setlist on one of my O-Town pages)  It was quick and couldn’t be easier and it came out looking 10x better than the one that I did by hand.

The final product will end up posted one of these days in a Scrapbook Saturday post! (Probably next month or later)


Product Review: 2 USB Reading Lamp

The Lumenate Reading Lamp is perfect for anyone who needs a little reading light now and then. Great for home, work, travel or recreation. The flex arm extends to shed light just where you need it! This reliable light features a 12 inch gooseneck arm with 2 LED lights, On/Off switch and adjustable brightness settings. The sensitive quick touch light switch features three settings – On One Light | On Two Lights | Off. Designed with extra long flexible gooseneck you can direct light in any direction. Fits all devices with a powered USB port: Laptops, Netbooks, PCs, Macs, USB Hubs and Wall chargers.

This lamp is incredibly easy to use.  Plug it in to a USB port (I tried it on my computer as well as on my USB charging station) and click the button 1 time for 1 light, 2 times for 2 lights and a 3rd time for off.  You can see in my photos I took pictures of it up against the wall plugged into the charging station to try and show how much light you get for 1 2 or off.  Although I took the photos in the daylight, you can also kind of see how much additional light is added to my laptop keyboard.  This lamp is great for traveling – it is small and you can bend the lamp in to all sorts of positions to get the light just where you need it to be.

I received a product in exchange for this honest review.

Product Review: Toothbrush Sanitizer

Oral SteriClean UV portable sanitizer is proven to kill harmful bacteria that causes infectious diseases, heart disease, stroke, respiratory infections, blood infections, ulcers, GI tract infections, gum disease, cavities & life threatening diseases. It is manufactured under FDA registered facilities.

Oral SteriClean cleans and sanitizes a single toothbrush or electric toothbrush head. It is durable, perfect for travel and made for all ages!

Oral SteriClean UV Toothbrush Sanitizers are not used just to keep your mouth healthy, they are used to keep our entire body, heart, lungs and other vital organs healthy. There is a whole list of diseases that can be caused by the bacteria on our toothbrush – many of which I had no idea of before I looked into this product!  All you need to do is place your toothbrush or toothbrush head into the sanitizer and it will automatically turn itself on and off. (Batteries not included!)

I really like this product because it is small and I can easily take it with my on vacation, to a friends house for the weekend, or just keep it on my bathroom counter to keep my toothbrush head sanitized day in and day out. Others I have seen are much larger and need to be plugged into a wall, since this runs on batteries I can stick it in my pocket if I wanted to and take it wherever I needed to go.
