Well, the big news on this show is my new machine – the cricut!

With my cel phone do give you an idea of the size.  And the back of the heart already has fusible on it!

With my cel phone do give you an idea of the size. And the back of the heart already has fusible on it! Oh, and the fabric it is on is the backing fabric I picked up in Pomeroy.

The keyboard for this particular set of shapes - each cartridge comes with it's own removable keyboard - how neat!

I emailed the company looking for more information on this because there website, while fantastic; doesn’t seem to have any info on this one!

And not mentioned in this episode – but yes, another cutting system has entered the Studio of madness – Remember a while back I’d asked if anyone had tried this – well, since noone answered me (ha-rumph!) I figured I should just check it out for myself.  I used my 40% off coupon at Jo-ann’s plus a 10% memorial day discount and made sure it was returnable.  BUT guess what?? It really works! I love it. (darn! – no, really, it’s ok, I need another cutter) The fabric doesn’t slip around and the cuts are clean and sharp.  Uses a regular 45mm blade.

And finally, for today’s post anyway – here is the picture of what Denise in Ca. did with the Fraktur scraps – isn’t it fabulous?!
