The pattern booklet includes a plurality of pattern identifiers and a memory device with cutting instructions for each of the identified patterns. The booklet removably mounts to the cutter controller so that an operator can select a pattern from the pattern booklet and have the memory device provide the corresponding set of cutting instructions to the cutter controller. The cutter controller uses the instructions to control the X-Y cutter and cut the desired pattern. A cutting platform of the X-Y cutter has a tacky adhesive that releaseably secures a work piece to the cutting platform during cutting operations. The cutting platform includes surface features that engage a spur gear. The cutter controller selectively rotates the spur gear to drive the cutting platform in the Y direction. The apparatus may use a journaling, embossing, perforating instrument instead of the cutter to make a pattern on the work piece.||11-20-2008|
