Sure Cuts A Lot 2

     Sorry its been so long since I posted but I had to help welcome our newest grandson Charles Francis Haskell. He was born July 20th and is the 3rd son for our daughter Joelle and her husband Mark. Charlie makes our 5th grandson out of now 8 grandchildren! I guess I better get going on some baby albums!!
     I love all the tools available for the paper crafters out there however, it can be intimidating to use all the products I have, lol, or should I say learn to use. I am so glad I found My Creative Classroom. Its an on line "school" for crafters and they offer some wonderful classes. So far I have taken both sessions on the Bind-It All for mini books and the alcohol inks classes.
     Several years ago a program came out that works with the Cricut (although it is not sponsored by Provo Craft that makes the Cricut).Since I am so computer savvy (LMAO) I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered the program. Well MCC is offering a summer program on the SCAL 2 so naturally I jumped on it.
     All the little quirks about the program are finally beginning to make sense, yeah! The above screen shot is from lesson 4. The bug is Cara's and we have to use markers (yes I have the cri-kits sparkle pens) and cut it out. However the image that is traced with the pens and the outline image did not quite match up so I learned how to fool with the measurements. It came out perfect, yeah!!!! Can't wait for the next class on Wednesday. I'm beginning to feel smart!!!!
