Hope 2012 has started off on the right foot for you.
We had a wonderful Christmas break! Spent precious time visiting and celebrating with family. Our travels were safe and uneventful. And we even got a reminder of what a winter snow is like (honestly, I didn't need the reminder, but it was pretty!)

I received a new toy for Christmas! After cutting and crafting with my Craft Robo for 5 years (and being very good about not lusting after all the upgraded cutters that have come along during those years), Hubby gifted me with a KNK Zing! Not only can I cut larger (up to 14" wide!), but I can cut heavier, denser papers and even fabric!!
So . . .
I am now learning how to operate this nifty new cutter along with learning to design with new software (MakeTheCut). Making progress - but still lots to learn!!
Haven't gotten too adventurous yet with this new machine, although I did try cutting chipboard - and as they say "cut like butter"!!
I must admit to being a little intimidated at first (uh, still) with the variety of cut settings (blade depth, force, offset), but I'm getting the hang of it and with each cut I get a better understanding of how everything works together.
If anyone is considering purchasing this cutter and has questions let me know - I will do some experimenting and report back. :)
All that being said, for file sharing I'll be offering different file type downloads. Please, if these don't work for you let me know, 'cause the only one I have tested is MTC. MTC software allows me to export in svg, ai/eps, and pdf; so hopefully one of these will work for you without too much trouble.
So here it is my first share from my Zing! This is sized for a scrapbook page - but could easily be cut larger!
Speaking of a New Year - my goal is to update my blog a bit more often than I have been recently - but you know how resolutions go . . .
:) See ya soon!
