Spent the day playing with my Wishblade

I have lots of new photos so wanted to do some titles for the layouts I am going to do using my Wishblade. I am using Funtime Scrapbooking Software with my old blue Wishblade and Windows Xp. It took me some time to figure out how to fit text to a circle but once I figured it out I'm going to have so much fun with it.
Looking back I probably should have purchased the Sure Cuts a Lot software or
Making the Cut Software and then I could have used the same software with my new Cricut using a USB cord. Oh well, live and learn. May just have to get that software after Christmas to use with my laptop so I can be more portable. It would mean I would not be limited by the cartridges I have but could use my laptop to create titles using any True Type Font or Dingbat.

Enjoyed a day off

I enjoyed my day off today. The sun was shining and I had the furnace off and the front door open to get some fresh air while I battled the dust bunnies in my living room.
I finished up some layouts I started at the funraiser scrapbook day and then went out for lunch with a friend. I'll post some of the completed layouts when I get a chance.
Tomorrow, I hope to squeeze some Christmas cards in between appointments. Wish me luck.

Treats Talents and Treasures

We had a fund raiser at work that includes a Treats, Talents and Treasures raffle. Although I no longer am a Stampin Up Demonstrator, I enjoy teaching so my contribution is some stamp sets and a free card making or scrapbook page class. Congratulations to Megan. I hear you already have a group of avid scrapbooker and cardmakers ready for me.

More layouts

Some scrapbook pages

Was playing with my new Cricut digital. Jenna cut and I pasted. So easy. All you do is enter the words you want on the keyboard , set the style and size, and it cuts the paper out for you.
