It has been a long time…but I am back with a new cutter!!!!!!

 

Hello Everyone! I know that it has been a long time since I have posted especially anything about papercrafting but I have settled in down here in Florida and am ready to start crafting again.

I will be changing the name of my blog soon because I well, no longer own a cricut. I thought about this decision for a long time and came to the conclusion that I just felt limited with the cricut and I wanted full design capability. So I actually turned back to the company that I started with as far as having a larger cutting machine. I went with the KNK Zing!

Zing

So far I love this machine. I used to own the KNK Element and I loved it but I was using it for a business that eventually burned me out when it came to designing anything. That is when I decided to invest in the cricut machine. Now that I’ve had a break  I realized how much I enjoyed having the ability to design if I want to. 

Here are a few things that I have done so far with the machine:

This was a fun little treat box that I created in MTC. That is one of the neatest things about the Zing is that it comes with MTC! So for anyone that was using it with their cricut they do not have to worry about learning a new software.

This is the first box I have ever created and I really liked how it turned out. I will be putting this file in the knkusa.com file section for purchase. My son gave this to his teacher filled with the new pumpkin spice hershey kisses! They are yummy by the way!!!

Next thing I created was for my dining room table! I wanted to decorate it for fall and I was looking for a pumpkin. Well I found the perfect one over at svg cuts . This website is amazing. They have the best svg files I have ever seen. I am convinced that I need to have a separate account just to fund the files that I want to purchase from this site. If you have not checked them out I encourage you to. You will not regret it. Plus there is always a great kit that is free with purchase!! Plus they have some really great free svg’s. 

Here is my pumpkin:

This is from their Pick a Pumpkin kit. It has a ton of files in it and they are all so much fun. I am not done with this yet. I am going to make a white smaller pumpkin and then I am going to add some mums that I purchased from svg cuts. I will post those picks when I get them done.

So that is what I have been up to. I will be blogging regularly next week.  So come back and check it out. If you have any questions about the Zing let me know!!! It was hard to choose between it and the Cameo but I chose the zing because of the different specs. If you want to know more specifics message me!!!
