~Running Late Thursday~

Well obviously I am running behind on my blogging this week!
I have sick boys at home and instead of fun scrappy gal, I get to be tired mommy. hehe
But I did wrangle my 13 yr old son into helping me make this video. Now mind you I know I sound like a crazy woman my words are all fubbled up. But you get the idea so it's good enough for me!

This is a quick tutorial on How to Use you USX or Fiskars Ultra ShapeXpress Shape Cutter.
I know so many people who have thrown them out or given them away or taken them back.
Well, I was blessed enough to have Wendy Jo show me how to use it, so I thought I would pay it forward to anyone who needs to learn how.

Have a beautiful day.
It is snowing here and chilly.

Oh and don't forget! The Crop at Treasured Scrapbooking begins TOMORROW!
Come join me for some fun!
I will be hosting a make and take Just Add Scraps
and a STEAL the RAK game too!
Plus BINGO by Lisa!
All of us have worked hard for some fun stuff!
Great prizes and great friends!

Thanks so much for doing that video. I've only had the USX a short time & used it once. Thanks to you I now know to take that free hand plate OFF before trying to use it with a template.DUH!
That was an excellent training video. Fiskars should hire you.

I just got one of these and it's been frustrating as hell.
The tip about running the blade along your mat first is a good one. I'm going to try that asap. Thanks for the info! You Rock!!
