A Look Back... and some eCraft news!

Monday already?!  Where did the weekend go?  I think the weekend should be extended to at least 4 days... (and work only 3!)

It has been a year since I first got my eCraft electronic machine.  A year!  Time really does fly.
At first when I got it, I really didn't know what I was doing.  Seriously.  I had a Cricut Expression and was used to a mat and using cartridges, so using no mat (and eCraft Shop Pro and SCAL3 and SVG's) was really different for me.  But, before long, (and thanks to Denise's tutorials and videos!) I was up and running and creating with my new eCraft.

So I thought I would share one of my first projects I made with my eCraft last October.  It was a Halloween project (of course!).  I took the crate from SVG Cut's Caramel Apple Pie Kit and made it into a Poison Apple Crate! 





Crate svg from Caramel Apple Pie SVG Kit -
Skull svg from Hazel's Wicked Witch Crafts SVG Collection -
Glitter Alpha Letters - Kelly Panacci Halloween Alphabet Chipbox by K and Company
Black Cardstock - The Paper Company
White Glitter Cardstock - unknown
Patterned Cardstock - Ravenhead Manor Scrapbook Paper Pad by Recollections
Ribbon - Recollections
There you have it!  One of my first (of what would become very very many) eCraft projects! 
Now for some eCraft News::::
Word has it that the eCraft by Craftwell will be on HSN this Wednesday, October 10th!   Make sure to check it out!

Hope you all have a great and not so manic Monday!
(Sorry the song is stuck in my head! ;-)  )
