Looky Looky At My New Belle (SCAL)

Hey yall! How are you doing today? Good I hope. I wanted to share something that I just LOVE with you today. Let me back up a bit first though. For our 7th wedding anniversary, Brandon bought me the Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) software. If you are not familiar with this, it is a program that you can use with your computer and Cricut. Provo Craft, the makers of the Cricut, do NOT make this program. It is by a different company called Craft Edge. If you use it, it will void the warranty on your machine. But this was not an issue for me. I've had my machine a while and the warranty on mine is already out. But this software is perfectly safe for your machine and gets rave reviews. You can say goodbye to those expensive cartridges, because this software will allow you to cut anything!! The options are endless. Now, I'm not sayin' I won't buy any more cartridges (Hee hee), but I can promise you I won't be buying as many. There are files, lots of 'em free too, all over the net that you can use with this program. Also, you can design your own unique files, which is what I'm about to show you. Anyways, I found the SCAL forum and there is a member on there who is taking requests. Well, I knew when I saw it that I had to give her an image of one of my favorite 'belle's.' Yall know me, I love anything like this. So here is the image I gave her....

Then, she took the image and made it into a file so that I could cut it.

So I downloaded the file and brought it up in my SCAL, which is so user friendly. I then cut her out and added some Stickles. Ain't she a beauty??!!! I love her!!!!
I think next time I will do some shading on the bust area and add some embellishment on the hat, sleeves, and train portions of the cut. But for the first time, I am very excited! I can't wait to start cutting more with this software. I LOVE it!!!!
I just wanted to share that with yall today. I hope you all have a wonderful day! Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
