Since you can't use scal with your cricut machine I bought a used Silhouette from a friend to cut my non-cricut stuff. I love cricut but after looking at other machines I feel VERY limited with them. I wish they would come out with software of their own that you could use other images from different sites. Having scal and buying stuff I can't find at cricut has not slowed my cartridge buying. What is hurting that is buying a machine just to use scal. Here is a sketch contest I entered awhile back at ssd. I won first place. Title & tree is happy hauntings. Not sure what cart the leaves and arrows are from. The little kids came from myscrapchick.com.

A friend of mine has a new baby so I thought it would be a perfect time to break in my new YUDU! It had been sitting on the shelf collecting dust for quite awhile. So we made a couple of onesies and a few shirts. My other friend that helped (actually did most of the work and we just watched, thanks B) has a vinyl cutter and she cut the designs on the vinyl and then we taped it on the screen instead of burning the image on the screen. I've never burned a screen but the vinyl was super easy to use and clean. Not sure where she got the images. I tried it later with cheap contact paper. That's a NO-NO. The cheap stuff doesn't stick good enough!
