I spent most of my hour today trying to get my cutting machine (it's a Brother Scanncut 300) to cut my card stock cleanly. It's so frustrating! It all started the other day. I called in to The Range to spend my Mother's Day money on my favourite card stock. It's called Craft Sensations Basic Paper Stack. It's so nice, either 12 bright or 12 pastel colours, is a price I can afford only to be told they have discontinued stocking it! Aaggrrgh!
I've searched online but can't find anyone else who stocks it and to order from the manufacturer as trade the minimum order is £600, you do get free p&p though so silver lining and all that... anyway I bought the 'replacement product' that The Range employee (not the happiest bunny in the warren) assured me was of equal quality, even though it's only a4 whereas my favourite is 12x12.
It's not good. I spent ages last night adjusting my patterns to work with the a4 but it doesn't cut cleanly and looks definitely 'home made' rather than 'hand crafted'. I've emailed the company so I'm hoping for a reply tomorrow, if not I might just phone them!
So, no photos today because I haven't got anything done. I hope I'm not too boring.
night night for now.
