I recently became the very happy owner of a Klik n Kut Zing so I am on a whole new learning curve.  This is my first attempt at cutting a design. Apart from my letters being a bit wonky I was quite happy with it and looking forward to learning lots more about it.


Have  a great weekend. Be back next week with some Christmas ideas.
