I am the proud owner of... Eclips cutter with eCal software and it is all working beautifully. It arrived on Thursday and I got is all working in the lounge where I could just play with it as a stand alone machine. That was a good idea as I had lots of fun using the things on the 2 supplied cartridges and made some embellishments for the wedding album. The mat was too sticky to start with but it settled down fast and I was soon cutting away. I got the software installed over the weekend and Sunday I spent in the attic getting it sorted out there and getting all the free files I had found put in their folders. Then I finished off the work I did on Saturday with titles. I had to fiddle a bit to get the driver to work, just as well I know where the 'System' folder is and how to check the USB connection. For some unknown reason it needed mending. Still all done now and You will be able to see the fruits of my cutting when I get the photos sorted and posted, hopefully in the next few days. Oh and it could well be with a nice shiny new Fuji camera which is due to arrive sometime this week.

Place cards for the wedding

Just a quick post to get these recorded. Chris suggested the 'tent' card idea and it really worked. Peter & Debbie loved them and, apparently, the hotel want my details as they have never seen anything like them before !!!
I have to say I do like them and wouldn't have thought of using the format if Chris hadn't suggested it so a big thankyou to him.
