Trying Out the Eclips Machine

Yes, I finally broke down and invested in an Eclips machine. After seeing guest crafter Cheryl Miyashiro (on the Joy of Crafting) cut out really neat paper projects on the Eclips machine, I knew I NEEDED one. At first I didn't set it up right, but through the kind help from the crew at the Hilo Ben Franklin Crafts, my Eclips is up and running. I just had to show you a few of the items I cut out in a matter of a few minutes. I haven't glued down the parts or decorated the items, but I was excited to tell you how easy it all was to do even for a very technically handicapped crafter. I usually hate figuring out technical stuff but this machine is not that difficult, if you read the manual. I have the Cricut too, but I think the Eclips is a little easier and I don't have to keep refering to the manual as the Eclips tells you when you need to make some adjustments to the size or pressure. The best part is that the Eclips machine scores really well, making boxes and cards a breeze. I'm a happy crafter tonight and I plan to decorate some of the stuff I cut out and I have an idea for two wedding cards I need to mail. I know that the Eclips machine is going to save me lots of time. Thanks for reading this post. I hope it has given you some feedback about the Eclips machine. Please stop by again to see my upcoming Eclips creations.
