Went to Paperific at the Show Grounds, having stayed at Suzy W's overnight which made things so much easier. Thankful for that.
I bought a Gazelle die cutting machine which runs from the computer rather than from cartridges that are a contunuing expense. Mind you, I will need to do a heap of die cuts to make up the cost of the machine. It will be interesting to see how it goes - whether connecting to the computer all the time will take up space and time I don't want to spend.
