No more Cricut Cartridges

I missed the boat with wanting to purchase Making the Cut software to use with my Cricut Personal Electric Cutter but was able to download Sure Cuts a Lot version 2 to use with Cricut. for the same price (don't purchase version 3 because it will not work.)and have my Cricut machine cutting designs I have created or downloaded just like I can using Funtime with my old blue Wishblade. I can cut out any true type font without having to buy font cartridges and there are tons of free .svg files you can import into Sure Cuts a Lot. I just figured out how to separate colours in svg files to cut. You just have to ungroup the objects and pull up the layers menu. Click on the colours you do not want to cut. Insert your paper into the Cricut machine and then cut. I'm having lots of fun just playing.

Working on page titles

I've spent the morning playing with my Funtime Scrapbooking software and cutting titles for pages I haven't done yet on my Wishblade. When I have the pages completed I will make the files available for free download.
So far I have Happy Easter with eggs and a mat
and Rock and Roll with a record, guitar and mat.

Productive Day

Today is the first day since my surgery a little over 3 weeks ago that I was feeling the least little bit creative. I used my Wishblade to cut a title for a page in my Cuba album and scraplifted a card to make some Thank you cards. But first in order to get to my stamp sets and ink pads I had to empty 3 bins and put the contents away. My craft table is still buried but now it is buried in new stuff. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to finish putting that stuff away so I can get down to some serious crafting,
Will post pictures when the cards have been put together.

Recuperating at home

I'm recuperating at home from surgery. Somedays I feel really good and others I think I have done too much the day before. Will take it a day at a time and feel better really soon.
