The Cricut is kinda cool :-)

Well, I never thought the day would come that I would post about scrapbooking, but here it is!!!!
Deanne has been trying to figure out between these "die cutting machines" which one she wanted to get. After long and hard debate she has figured out to get the Cricut.

The reason I kinda got into it is because these things are pretty darn cool (as far as cool and scrapbooking goes anyway). They are like little mini computers that cut shapes based on cartridges you put in the machine. You can basically just program this little gadget to cut out a bunch of words/lettters/symbols and walk away and let it do its thing!!! Its pretty nifty stuff actually.

You can even get software for the cricket called SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) that you install on your desktop/laptop, and then you connect your Cricket to your computer/laptop and you can cut any TTF (True Type Fonts) that are installed on your computer.

I gotta say that is a pretty cool little gadget!!!

Yes I know, I know WAY too much about scrapbooking :-)

Well, at least it was about some sort of gadgety machinery, so I guess not totally gay :o)
