A new and exciting wat to create, Make The Cut

Hello Crafty ones,  As some of you may know, I am a huge fan of Die cuts, I love the versatility of the Sizzix and Spellbinder dies, that coupled with the embossing folders and embossing plates. That gives virtually unlimited amount of things to make, and if your anything at all like me, I keep a notepad by the computer or I use a great free program called Evernote to record all of the ideas I have seen and want to try. I also was a huge fan of the Cricut, but since money and greed became the company motto I like thousands of others have given up on the Provo company and all there other outlets in the craft industry. I worked diligently to be among the top cricut crafters, and was on a few of the DT's.SO I was a huge promoter, then came the law suits and more greed and well I no longer support them or give them my hard earned money. With all of that going on I needed to find a way to continue my Scrapping business without using those products. And I did, I first off re-discovered my love for Sizzix, Spellbinders, and CherryLynn, and so happy for that. You do not need those expensive machines and cartridges to create beautiful projects. Really you do not need that company to create anything but a smaller balance in the pocket book. And I am going to show you how.
I will admit, I do get curious about the goings on over on the cricut message boards, and every once and again I do check it out. Only to find yet more people defending the crappy customer service, the incomlete or inadequate machine releases, and so many unhappy customers,lies, and more lies, promises that never come and all this with a hefty price tag and yet you can find tons of people ready and willing to console those un-happy customers and they continue supporting the non-sense over there. I am happy to be free of that ring. They biggest complaint was with a cricut and the MTC software you could download thousands of free files from the net and cut them with your machine, which is why I purchased minr, it opened up a whole new world for all of us. PC caight wind of that and instead of embracing the situation and working with the developers they decided to take them down, and have their version of files and designing. I have been in the cricut create room and compared to the MTC or SCAL program it truly does suck.IMO.
Anywho, I can hook you up with links on this info if you so wish to find out more, and want to look for a machine that truly supports all the software out there. Its funny how the makers of even Sizzix a die based company jumped on the correct band wagon and are giving up machines to work with the free files, and the amazing software. Thats truly a leader in business who cares about ustomers and wants to keep them with great products, not a company who wants to corner the market and keep everyone in the dark and penniless. In a few short months of not purchasing cricut items I was able to save enough to but my dream machine for almost $1.000.00 as well as put my dies back into use.
So I am going to be doing projects scrapping, stamping, altered arts, mixed media and even home decor using nothing but dies and free files found on the web.
A beautiful flourish and a silhouette which is from a TTF font, which is free to use and works amazingly well on the MTC software. Such beautiful cuts.

If you are looking for places that have free files be sure to click the correct tab on the top of the blog there are some wonderful resources there for free files, tutorials and a ton of other info.
Butterflies and birds we all love to use these.. Also free, for the bird log into Paulo's blog. the butterfly is from scrapmag.

 And what tag junkie, or art doll lover has enough torso tags???
Open your mind to the possibility of no limitations and huge cartridge prices, when the world of free is available to you. You can contact me for questions or help of any kind.
