first attempt with E Craft cutting machine


it’s Christmas Eve are you all prepared?

im off to my son’s tomorrow  im so looking forward to it No Cooking

get to spend the day with Sophia and all her new toys..

i have been getting familiar with my new toy  my E craft  cutting machine from Crafters Companion

i unpacked it last night and set it all up …..

very simple to do thank the lord


here is a card i have made with the  design shapes from the  fundamental 1 cartridge and the software that you down load

i used the software to weld text for Sophia’s name then did a blacked out shadow layer  just having a play

i will be honest and say yes! you have to try out your paper and card stock to get correct  pressure settings  me i just jumped straight in and chewed a few pieces of paper up lol

but once you get used to the settings it’s a very easy machine to use

now that for me is a Mega Statement ! im rubbish with new things normally  i don’t do written instructions at all lol …

im very very pleased with my first efforts so it can only get better from now on

anyway i will hopefully be sharing more after the Christmas break

have a very happy holiday everyone

thank you for popping by
