Since then, I have been playing with it and learning how to use it. I've made lots of random things so far and am getting the hang of it. This is my very first cutting machine, so I knew I would have a learning curve butI gotta say, I am hooked. :)
|Reading instructions and learning how to use it.|
|Pushing the "go" button for the first time! How exciting!|
|Whee! Look at the machine go!|
The pride of the first project.
What thrills me is that you can use your own "system fonts" of fonts from your computer or that you download. I love that! I already used my fonts creatively by printing them, but now I can put it right on something with my Cricut, that is even more awesome!
And I quickly learned how to place things so I can cut them all on one mat, instead of having to take everything off and replace it between cuts. I was glad I could make that trick work. It's a big time saver when working with smaller items.
The finished banner. Not a great picture, but at least you can see the final thing.
I can't wait to try even more things! Those are the things I made just in my first week, I can just see how useful this will be to my crafting. I am very excited.
