Thank you to everyone who checked out my meagre attempt at my first post. What an exciting day - Jan and I have just had a quick trip up to Auckland to visit Scottie Crafts . This is an amazing little shop tucked away in Ellice Road, Wairau Valley. We met them at SENZ in Hamilton (NZ) a few weeks ago and two weeks ago visited their store for the first (but definitely not last) time. It is only small but hold loads of scrapbooking and cardmarking toys ... heaven!!! The purpose of our trip was to buy an eclips electronic cutting machine. It's put out by Sizzix and we've been told that you can design your own stuff as well as using purchased cartridges - so we're going to give it a go. We've never had anything like this before so it is a real treat and a step up from scissors and a craft knife. The first thing we need to do is work out how to install it and then see if we can make it go. I promise to post pics once we have got it sussed. In the meantime, thanks for looking at my blog, and if you have any suggestions as to how I can improve it please let me know. Thanks.
