Thanks for sharing all of this info! I have an extremely busy weekend and hope to find some time to watch a tutorial. I haven't been on the sizzix site in years. I'll have to pop in and see whats new. I bore easily too, which is the reason why I own way too much stuff. Two Expressions, Two Baby Bugs, the E2, the Imagine, the Gypsy, a Big Kick, Grand Calibur, Cuttlebug...the list goes on and on. I just love my gadgets! Oh...I also own a Silhouette. It's an older model, but works great. Now I'm itching to take them all out and play. Congrats on your win!
Well the crop went well!! Did 2 pages an a mini album kit. Made 2 cards ,one was very slow moving with MANY layers brayed card....I think we used a ton of ink,but the card looks like sombody who knew what they were doing painted it!! Has a moon & a bird sitting on a branch, almost like in a misty woods or field........What!! don't u have a "Vagabond?"....lol I do lol I have an expression ,an e2, an Imagine,a gypsy,a big kick an a grand calibur, no way I could resist that on HSN with the Grand that came free with it, I also have the original with the rollers!!(purple) got it for working for MARCO PAPERS at a stamp convention,(in Pittsburgh) that was when they were called dies not nestabilities!!! lol No silhouette or ecraft....Just waitin for the ECLIPS!!!...thanks for the congrats ,didnt win anything at the crop..
Well, Jean, I dug out the Eclips and made a few very simple cuts. I'm going to have to take some time to learn this machine. I forgot it had that whole keyboard thing and when I slid the top of the controller up to reveal it, I nearly had a heart attack! VERY intimidating! LOL! But I did manage to squeeze out a card, so my efforts weren't totally wasted. When do you expect to receive your machine?
Margie ,there are 5 or six great videos on utube by kevin (somebody) an a blond lady, I think they were made by Oh My Crafts , any how they go into every button on the machine,an the instructions for everything is on the bottom of the screen...looks easy & fun to me!! I have watched the videos several times.....Oh my crafts said they had a transit delay,but r expecting the machines this week....they been saying something similiar since March 26....I got the machine for $202 plus $15 shipping an cant find it anywhere for less or Id fight to get my money back....How long have u had urs??
It FINALLY shipped on Monday,this morning the ups info says it arrived in Illinois at 7:09 this morning,is due to arrive Monday,was hoping for FRI.....oh well,ive been playing around with the ecal,and bought some svgs and I cant wait to try several of those,I also have some cartridges because I was buying those while waiting for the machine to ship. lol There were some great deals on amazon and omcrafts!!!
