Back To Work . . .

Hi All,
Yup, It was back to work today.  Truth is I just wanted to stay home and play with my awesome new plotter!  So as soon as I got home from work I hit the ole' craftspace to play around and see if I could whip up some crafty goodness.  So back in March of 2010 I had dressed up some of Hubby stools in his music area with logos of his favorite toys.  He loved them and if you want to see them just hit the vinyl link on the side bar.  But his absolute favorite amp is his Messa Boogie and he wanted a vinyl sticker of the logo for his last stool.  So I had at it and to be honest it only took about ten minutes to make, print and apply.  He loved it and I got lots of hugs, kisses and kudos for it.  Here are the pics.

I really love this cutter, the print and cut went smoother than any other cutter I own.  This is as close to a professional cutter you can get that is under $500.00.  I have only had it for 2 days and I feel like I have owned it for months. Thanks for stopping by and please check back to see what else I can create with this amaZING new machine.

I Have Been Zinged!!

Hi Everyone,
I hope all had a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Here at our house was awesome!  The friends, family and food, I sure feel blessed.  And it's not over yet because New Year's Eve is here as well!!  I can't wait! I am so excited about my (extreme) Christmas gift that Paul, Sam & Rory got me.  Now mind you I don't want to sound like a greedy gus, but this was awesome good craftyness!! Just look at the picture (Can you believe I am willing to post a picture of myself with no make up and hair not brushed on the web for all to see!)

OK, you can stop screaming "MY EYES, MY EYES" now (Are those my tonsils?).  Look at the shear joy on my face. Anyone can tell this was the right gift for me.  So what is it? It's my new cutting plotter!! I was so surprised and I could not get the smile off of my face for the whole day. In fact I am still smiling.  Paul and the Kids were so happy that they surprised me.  I have been up and cutting all day.  I just have to say if you are in the market for a new cutter this is the one check out.  If your an experienced cutter there is no learning curve at all and if your not, there are great forums out there ready to help. Here is my list of FAVS.

The Make the Cut forum can be found here:

The yahoo group can be found here:
The KNK website is here:
Sandy McCauly's Blog and tutorials are here:
and the Paperthreads forum is here:

Now I have been a member of all these sites for a long time and pretty much all I know I learned from all these great folks. New members are always welcome and if you are into or want to learn all there is about digital die cutting these are the peeps that can teach you.  A shout out of thanks to all these great crafters.
I love the new ZING.  I can't wait to start my Valentine's Day favors. The print and cut feature is amaZING. I have been printing and cutting all day.  I hope everyone had a Christmas like mine.  Thanks for stopping by and good wishes to all for a Happy, Healthy, and Crafty New Year!
