Sure Cuts A Lot vs. Make The Cut
Lori asked the difference between Sure Cuts A Lot vs. Make The Cut. To be quite honest, I'm not sure as I don't have Sure Cuts A Lot and haven't worked with it. I've had Make The Cut for almost a year and find it very easy to design in. Additionally, it seems like it is updated quite frequently and so far, there hasn't been a charge for the updates. I LOVE the "Join" feature. Its similar to "Welding" in Cricut Design Studio. However, the project I was working on was a banner. I used circles to create the scallops around the edges and welded them. I needed holes in the top to run the ribbons through. The "Join" feature allowed me to basically attach the circles to my other shapes so I could copy the whole mess and not have to move it piece-meal and make sure I got them in the right spot. Wish I would have taken pictures of the Halloween Banner before I gave it to my mother. But, I didn't and her darling dogs decided to eat two of the letters! I have some other projects in the works and plan to do a much better job with the blog in 2011!
