Something New.............

So many new things have been happening......

For X-mas, I bought a Cricut Expression. I know, I know but I am not using the cartridges. I have 2 that came with the machine and I bought one only because I won some money, $30, for a card competition. I don't really like the card. You know, you had to use the paper they gave you and had limits. Trust me.....I'm not sending it.

Anywho, my hubby calls her Big Yeller. Im not to fond of the flowers but I'll live. So I am using this software called Make the Cut http://www.make-the-cut.com/. I have been playing around with it and let me tell you it welds like a snap. You don't have to trace!!!! YEAH! The software is so easy to use, compared to the Craft Robo software that I pulled my hair out on. lol
So this is my first attempt to share a file. I have 2 PDF's because it would not let me "combine" the two. If you can help me combine, please do. It is in MTC, Funtime and GSD form also. They are all in one zipped file. This helps me here on my blog.

I hope I will be able to create and share in all file forms, If not, I will let you know.

Lots of Love,
Lisa

Hi Lisa I also got the CE on Black Friday for my CHRISTmas present. And like you I didn't want to HAVE to buy the cartridges...although I did buy some and won some on blogs and some that came with the CE. I am trying to learn the MTC..Not to design just to cut other's files LOL So thank you so much for sharing.

Like you, I'm on a budget. I've purchased the cartridges at various sites for cheap! Custom Crops is one company that sells them real cheap. Michaels store also sells them cheap periodically. The best time to buy cartridges is during Thanksgiving week. Keep an eye out for sales!

By the way, thanks for the file. Love your stuff.

You might want to get rid of that last comment. You don't know him, do you?

You know, you SHOULD share that card that you made. I liked it...and beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Hugs!
