Make The Cut Coupon Code

If you are thinking about getting the Make The Cut software for the Cricut...they've included a coupon code of 1518429 to save you another 10% off the already 40% off discounted price!!  This discount is good through January 31, 2010 so don't wait too long to get YOUR copy!

PLUS, they've also announced that next week, there will be a FREE update, to include the ability to make easy shadows for your diecuts.

There's a new Cricut software in town!

There is a brand-spankin' new software available for Cricut owners!  If you love your Cricut, but don't want to be tied down to all of those cartridges, there used to be just one option and that was Sure Cuts a Lot.  At the time, that was a great option to Design Studio, but there is another software that has just become available that I am really excited about!

Make the Cut is a new software that is available for all Cricuts, and allows you to:

* WYSIWYG Interface
* Works with the Cricut™ Expression™, Create™ and Personal™
* Automated Cricut™ Driver Installation
* Preview/Use Any SVG
* Integrated SVG Gallery (Coming Soon!)
* Shadowing (Coming Soon!)
* Work on Multiple Projects at a Time
* Choose From 3 Standard Mat Sizes
* Use Any Installed Font or Import TTF Files
* Convert Raster Images to SVG Format
* Break/Split/Layer Shapes and Edit Them
* Weld/Join Shapes Together
* Export Shapes to SVG Format or Personal Library
* Cut, Copy and Paste Shapes Between Projects
* And Much, Much More!

Make the Cut is available for purchase at a 40% off price for a limited time ($129.95 - 40% = $77.97) which is a HUGE savings! 

Unfortunately, there is no Mac compatibility program out there, but they have listed on their site, that a Mac version will now be in the works for all of you Mac users!

There are already tutorials on YouTube, and you can even download a Trial Version to see if it's for you!

It's going to be a WHITE and lonely Christmas!

Yep...we're getting hit with a HUGE storm this Christmas weekend.  :(  Last night it started raining, then turning to sleet and ice all over the roads.  Right now it's just cloudy, but the weatherman is talking about more rain/sleet starting again anytime today.

Then comes the snow...Wednesday through Saturday we are expected to get hit with 14-20" of snow with wind gusts up to 50 mph.

Here is what my Wednesday looks like:


Then comes THIS!!!


Thankfully I really only have to drive 5 miles into the country to my parent's house on the farm.  However, my brother has to drive up from Kansas on Thursday morning in order to make it up for Christmas Eve at my parents house.  I'm afraid he's going to have to drive through the worst of it on Thursday.  :( 

On my husband's side of the family, I have a sister-in-law in Tulsa, OK and she wasn't planning on being back for Christmas as her husband is on call that weekend.  He also has one other sister that lives about 1 1/2 hours away from us, and I'm guessing she won't be able to make it either.  :(

12 Days of Christmas Day 10 Special

Have you ever played with the Just Right Stampers sets?  These ingenious little stamp sets have been all the rage, taking over the stamping world.

These stamps have 2 parts.  First is the wood, grooved part.  There are various sizes for the wood handle.  Next come the centers & borders that are the "actual" stamped images.  The snap into the grooved side of the wood handle and away you stamp!

Today, we are offering the 2 discontinued sizes at 50% off through Saturday, December 12.  This includes the stampers themselves, and all of the pieces that coordinate, including their borders and centers as well.
