Die Cutting Tips
Die cutting is so much fun and adds so much to your scrapbook pages. With a single investment you can add so much dimension to your scrapbooks. No matter which die cut machine you chose, you will get a lot from that single investment.
There are several kinds of die cutting machines to chose from. Each has it’s own distinct advantages. There are manual die cutting machines like the Cuttlebug and the Scissix. Then there are the eletronic machines like the Cricut, Cameos and the Vagabond. The newer electronic machines actually don’t use die cuts or cartridges anymore. They are now leaning towards computer images that are transferred to the machine, scanned and the machine will cut them automatically. It all depends on the amount you want to spend and the use that you will put to any machine you want to purchase.
Here are some guides to either help you decide on a machine or tips for using the ones you have.
Electronic machines can also make cuts similar to die cuts. Instead of making a cut from a die, they create the cut from a computer image and cut it electronically
