Star SNOWGLOBE Mickey is a star!

OK I have to say at this point of time I am back to
being happy with my ecraft cutting machine.
Here is a Star snow globe Sliceform I designed
in inkskape and imported into SCAL and cut using
Ecraft machine. Only thing I would do in future
cutting of clear plastic is i would tape the Plastic
to the stablelizer paper better.
I am soo happy with how it cut (I had to use minimum tabs
while cutting)
Used mickey and Friends cricut cartridge to cut the mickey

It folds flat for posting

I added the white snow with white paint pen

Back to the BOOKS ?

Back in October I was working on this pattern for
books to be cut on the cutters , only problem was
I did not know i had a problem with my cutter (I
thought the software was the problem) So now
i have the ecraft up and running I am back working
on a set of book patterns .
Here is one i cut yesterday , only thing now is I
need to go back and tweak the pattern and try the
cut again . Once i have successfully cut using the
ecraft, I will then be tweaking it to also be cut using
the cricut (fingers crossed). I will keep you up to date with
how i am going.
cut using scal on the ecraft and designed in inkscape






Besure to check back there will be lots more of these
to come.

Light touch of green (sliceform)

I wanted to test out the Ecraft machine with sure cuts
a lot software
, So i wanted to pick one of my very own patterns
that has lots of pieces and has to be cut correctly
(so as it can be put together right).
I think out of all my SusanBluerobot of sliceforms designs I think
this teddy with a total of 29 pieces is the best one to
pick for this tryout.
After i cut it out in white, i then thought OH it looks
like it cut right so i added a little sponging of green
chalk inkpad around all the edges and coloured the front
pads with the same inkpad.

It folds flat for mailing too
