Look What Showed up at My House!!!
Ok, are you ready to see my first project? Here it is. I made a little placecard.
I was able to to find a rectangle and resize it to 3 1/2" X 5". I then found the score line in the images and sized it to the proper width. The image in this case the rectangle has a small + in the center of the object so it was easy to properly lace the score line. On the brown piece of paper I attached the score line and the word Grandma so they would be placed on the project where I needed them to be.
Then came time to cut. So I hit the go button and let the software bring up the image on the screen. It provides small icons so you know the order the image will be dealt with. In this case it cut the rectangle first, then wrote then scored the line in the middle of my cut and then wrote the word Grandma.. The acorn and leaf border was cut separately on another mat. It was easy to follow once I got a chance to focus on what I was doing.
While this probably isn't something I would normally post, It wasn't about creating something great, but rather about trying to learn a new machine and software.
