Once again SCRAPS held another Scrapmania weekend where we scrapped way into the night...midnight to be exact and then all day Saturday. At Scrapmania some of the ladies were very well prepared and were able to do as many as 10 layouts with photos in place as well as some journaling! I was impressed with how organized they were. There were door prizes drawn throughout the event, and there was a Scrap yard sale as well as a demonstrator from one of the companies selling stamps, paper etc. It was a wonderful weekend filled with Scrapping, friends and great food...oh yeah, I forgot to mention the food...these ladies not only do totally awesome pages, but they also cook some unbelievably delectable, scrumptious food...I certainly blew my diet.
Also available at Scrapmania, were some classes could be taken, here is a class that I had taught last year with a request for it to be taught at Scrapmania...I don't know what happened, but this class took over 2 hours to do and it should've been less than an hour...but as usual, the ladies created their own layouts by embossing the snowman with the Cuttlebug embossing folders, also heat embossing, and glitter glue was used, and it isn't in the picture, but one of the girls layout is going to be the redneck snowman and is going to be holding a shotgun! I designed the gun for her in the new Surecutsalot 2, which I absolutely love this new program..it opens the door wide for all the things my Cricut can do now....Thank you Todd!!!!
If you own a Cricut, here is an excellent software that allows you to cut
any True Type font with your machine, as well as many cliparts can now be
traced within the program turning them into an svg format, this feature alone
makes getting SCAL2 worth it as you will never need to purchase any carts.
There are thousands of files out there for you to download for free or for a
small fee that you can cut with your Cricut. I must say I use this software for
almost every layout I have done when using my Cricut. I actually use it more
than cartridges....don't tell Provo :)
