A Bean and Cutting Adventures

Okay, I'm about to spill a bean, a tiny little bean. Yes, part of the surprise I've been working on involves a file, a special file created by yours truly.

I've been hard at work on it and, to be honest, I was nervous about how it would cut. As with all my files, I was zooming in as close as possible and checking every millimeter of every path to make sure it would cut smoothly and easily. I carefully arranged the order of the paths so that your cutters will progress smoothly and logically through the file. To do this, each path has to be on its own layer. This file has 129 different paths!

I was so worried about getting the most intricate part of this file to cut correctly that I literally prayed before I clicked on the cut button. Wouldn't you know it? It cut perfectly on the very first try! That must have boosted my confidence because I didn't pray before I cut the simple part of the file. Yep, you guessed it! I had to cut, re-adjust the paths, cut again, re-adjust the paths another time, and send it to cut again. I must have spent an hour just getting the title, the supposedly easy part, to cut right.

So, I promised I'd spill a tiny bean and now you know you'll be getting a file, an intricate file that will cut perfectly. I've taken all the hassle out of it just for you! Now, what's the file about? Well, that's a bigger bean that'll have to wait until tomorrow. LOL!

Happy Scrapping!

You did an excellent job on the border. Thanks Wanna know a secret? I don't know how to down load and cut a file on my KNK that I bought about 9 months ago. I can cut a few things but nothing fancy. I do better with the my cricut expression and my big shot. I promise I'm going to try all of these great borders. Thanks for listening. nana31331
