Well, I did it. I broke down and sold my much loved Cricut and all the cartridges I had invested in, so that I could buy an eCutter that worked with Stampin’ Up! digital scrapbooking software, My Digital Studio. I recently had a party for a new Stampin’ friend and she had a WONDERFUL scrapbooking / stamping room full of all sorts of fun toys! One of the items she had was a Pazzles eCutter that her husband had purchased for her. One of those 5 easy payments, on a home shopping network. She said she LOVED her cricut and didn’t have the time or interest to learn how to operate the Pazzles, so she was thinking of selling it. I came home all excited and told my hubby. His reaction was “You can’t buy a new one until you sell the old one”. (Very typical hubby reaction when I want a new and improved version of something….)
The next weekend was a scrapbooking retreat with friends and I brought my cricut and used it all weekend. The other ladies didn’t have one and were fascinated with all the cool stuff it did. So….. you guessed it, I found a buyer and bought my Pazzles.
I finally got to sit down and really play with it today. I wanted to explore several features of my new machine and made a banner for a friend who is throwing a baby shower. It came out so cute!
The hearts were basic shapes within the software. The letters were made with a true type font from my computer. The onsie was a free SVG file that I downloaded and converted in Inkscape (a free program) and saved as a cut file that I could bring into my Pazzles Inspiration software. The pacifier was clip art that I found online and converted. The teddy bear was a stamp from My Digital Studio and the baby bottle was an SVG file I purchased online. Like I said, I wanted to try several things that it would do…
My head is now spinning with ideas! I’m definitely gonna be using this more!
