Print & Cut

Merry Christmas everyone.  6 days till Christmas.  Yikes I still have a lot to do.  But that is the way it is at Christmas. Lots to do and you wonder if you will get done and then Christmas day comes and you thing WOW  I got everything done.

Things have been hectic for me this past few months starting with my SIL.  Doctors and Tests, But Thank God that she doesn't have cancer.  There is some problems, but nothing that can't be fixed.  Then my son-n-law almost died when he quit breathing and they couldn't incubate him.  He now has a trake, but he doesn't mind.  He has already gone back to work and does what he can. So I have so much to be Thankful for and so Blessed.  Everyone else is doing great.  My oldest Granddaughter
got married yesterday and also is going to be giving me a 2nd great-grandson due April 22, 2015.

Enough of the bad and the good news.  I have the Explorer and have been trying to learn how to use it. I've watched sooooo  many videos on how to's its not funny. Any way yesterday I decided to use the Print & Cut feature after watching a video from Mary from CARDSTV
 I love all her cards that she makes. Any way she made this card using a penquin that she had used the print and cut feature.  I wanted to do the Christmas Owl from CAC2 cart.
I had to calibrate my explorer at least 5 times before I got it right.  Below is the first two cuts that I did.  As you can see in the pictures that it was off.

The next two photos I changed the size and they came out perfect. Now I need to figure out how to make the colors  more pronounce.

Today I hope to make my Owl bigger for a card.
After the new year, I'm going to try using vinlyn and see if I can figure out How to do it.

Thanks for looking and all  comments will be very helpful.

Merry Christmas everyone
