Literally thousands....

I literally have thousands of sheets of 8.5 x 11" paper.  All colors, stack and stacks and stacks of it.  When I discovered a really good A2 envelope svg file for my Cameo I thought, 'aha, I don't have to buy envelopes any more' and I started making them - put a sheet on the mat, load the mat, load the print program on the software, press start, wait for the cutting to be finished, unload mat, peel off the envelope, and start all over again.  Jeez, at this rate, I can cut 10 in an hour.  You know that light bulb that appears over the heads of people?  Well, mine was 400 watts.  I have a Big Shot A2 envelope die I've never even cuts four envelopes in one pass.  So, ok, I may get tennis elbow (wish it was electric) but...four envelopes at a pass.  One ream of printer paper is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than a box of A2 envelopes.  Note to self: don't evah buy A2 envelopes again.
