After waffling and pondering and researching for about the past 2 years or so, I finally took the plunge on an electronic die-cutter! I ordered a Pazzles and it arrived a couple of days ago. I'm still just playing and experimenting, but here is my first completely Pazzle-ized project! I created all the cutting files myself (for the card base, the background paper, all the letters, etc). I had to re-cut the "birthday" and mat, because I didn't like how the papers I chose originally looked... but I'm pretty pleased with it now.
I can't wait to play some more and create more of my own cutting files! Whhhheeeeee!!
