Hello from a very wet and windy Somerset.........hope everyone is safe and well out in blogland. Happy valentine's Day to you all.
Had to pop by to share a quick post with you today. After looking, considering, saying no, looking and considering again I actually bought a Brother Scan N Cut machine. Now I did put a whole lot of thought into this as my friend Jan and I bought a Pazzles Inspiration a few years ago but neither of us could get on with it so it's been sitting in the corner gathering dust. I think the main problem was that you needed it to be attached to a computer and the actual programme was pretty complicated. It was one of those things when if you didn't get good results you were reluctant to use it.
Anyway you can see why I ummed and ahhed about this. The main reason that I was convinced was the fact that you can stamp an image, scan it into the machine and it actually cuts that image out...........PERFECTLY!!!!
It's been sitting on my worktop for a few days partly because I didn't want to be disappointed and also I wanted to have time to dedicate to playing with it. And that came this morning.......took my heart in my hands and plugged it in. First came the test cut...........which worked. Then came the big test, for me anyway, so I stamped this gorgeous stork from the February release at Clearly Besotted, scanned the image in and did a direct cut. This is the result:
I did a little happy dance - I was so pleased. I suppose you can expect trial and error period when using a new machine but I can't tell you how delighted I was with the result.
Okay, that's me signing off - time to have another play!
