• Hello all you Crafters and Community Folks

    Hope everyone here at HSN community is well. Hope you all had a Happy Easter. I have been crafting away sorry no pictures but I can tell you all what I have been doing.

    For starters I just purchased a new Brother Scan n Cut. I bought the CM650w. I just got it on the 15th of April.
    What I have been doing is I have been drawing and coloring with it. I thought my cm 550/550dx was fabulous well this is more fabulous. I love it.
    I really like the wireless feature. Although my labtop is right next to my scan n cut and before I would just use my usb stick to download my created design from the scan n cut free program canvas. Now I can work in canvas from my desktop in my kitchen and send over my design to my new scan n cut machine. Awesome. I find it cuts perfectly and draws and colors perfectly too.

    I really like the bigger LCD screen that both the newest models have the CM350 and the CM650w. I can now see much better where I am putting the dash lines in a card when working within my machine. I wear eyeglasses.

    Yesterday I had the scan n cut draw out a very intricate design. One of the free designs that Brother gives out each month. I then colored it in with my Spectrum Noir markers. Purple and gray. I used 12 markers.

    What I am going to do is laminate it with my laminating machine then scan it in and cut it out on my scan n cut. I did something similar the other day. My machine had no problem cutting through the card and the laminate.

    The next project is to see how well this cuts fabric. My scan n cut 1 cm550/550dx cut felt fabric beautifully and I anticipate no problem with this machine.
    Lots of designs to play with and new things to do.
    Hope you all are having a great week.

    You are such a nice person. I do read and enjoy your post about crafting.

    I have seen some of your work. Just wanted to say hello and I wonder what you
    will come up with next. One day when I have the time I might do a craft project.

    You inspire me. Have a wonderful day.

  • Oh my little Moon Goddess @sheba2011
    Thank you for your very kind and inspiring words. It is people like you that inspire and encourage me.

    I have read many of your very kind posts to the community. Always love what you have to say. You are awesome.
    You too my sweet Moon Goddess have a wonderful day.
    I hope you do craft some day. I find it very relaxing and it helps me focus on somethings. It is really relaxing. Just coloring in designs by hand is very soothing to the mind.
    Thanks so much for Stopping by and posting to me.

    Oh well that did not work. I was trying to see if I could use one note to upload a picture but it did not work. oh well

    • HI @cupatea….I am afraid that right now with the state of this forum the only way you can post a pic is using a storage site. Maybe they will let us go back to a library here in the future. Who knows. If I can help you in any way just let me know….

    • Good Morning @fbn135 @velveteenrabbit7 @skittles135
      Thank you all so much for posting to me. @fbn135 Thank you for the offer and the thought I just might take you up on it.

      @fbn135 I was playing around with Microsoft One Note and found out that you can put pictures in your Note. I then noticed that you can share them and I did get a link address so I tried to post it up. No go. I think it is really only for email. I am really trying to avoid third party like tiny pics and photobucket. I am thinking of the Cloud maybe but not happy with that either.

      I also noticed amazon has a type of cloud as well if you have prime. However I think you can only share that with five actual people and I am not really sure at this time how that works. Not sure if it will let you post pictures to website like this.

      At this point I think there is another way but have not discovered it yet.

      Sorry @velveteenrabbit7 We will see if I have to go to the third party as much as I do not like doing that.

      Oh sorry @skittles135 I got excited too when I was working in Microsoft One Note Gorgeous☺

      Thanks everyone off to the eye Doctors so I got to go. I will try to get on here later on today or this evening.
      Thank you all again and thanks @fbn135 You are awesome. Hey I love that car over in the community New forum post. Is that EAT MY DUST or are you just burning rubber.☺

  • @cupatea

    I saw your name and got excited! I just want to say, Hello Beautiful! 🙂

  • Hi friends,

    This whole post has been edited to the fact that a computer did not want to sync with my pictures so it deleted them Sorry everyone. I thought I found a way to show you all my silly crafting items.

    Sorry it has been deleted by some other computer all the pictures have.

    I just really do not want to use a third party picture displayer. LOLOL thanks everyone for stopping in and checking my pictures out and posting you are all just very kind to me☺

    I think I can post it now it seemed to just take a while to show up. So far this picture of my scan n cut is still here but I expect that to be deleted too.

    Cupatea Thanks everyone I am very sorry the pictures are all gone now.

    • It worked and that drawing is very pretty. I have the Brother CM350 and have used it to draw. Do you know what the difference is between mine and your new one? I am still learning it. Thanks for working so hard so we can see what you are doing. Leah

    • Oh my Goodness a fellow scan n cutter. I have been waiting a long time for you☺
      the difference between mine and yours is I have more designs and I can scan in to the machine with the 12×24 mat. Plus I got the wireless activation card included and a few extras and I got the new Cut up This book by Emily Hogarth. I am going to try and post up a picture of my new snc.
      Leah if you have any questions please feel free to ask me. I might not know all the answers but I can point in to the direction.
      Your HSN friend,☺

  • Great picture, nice job. You are more advanced than I, but an inspiration. Keep having fun.

    • thank you @mixmaster
      I am glad you like it☺ Most of all that you could see it☺ awesome. I have a few more items so I will post them up as I just did using Microsoft One Note. for now it is working as a link. I am hoping to actually get the picture in instead of hitting the link.
      Thanks so much my friend☺
      Your HSN friend,
      Cupatea

  • @cupatea 🙂

    Hey I can smile now 🙂 I owe this to Community Member Florida!!!

    I keep learning new things everyday. I will never give up!

    I can’t wait to see your pictures. 🙂

    FBN135 has been fantastic! Thank you, thank you! 🙂

    I see with a little help from each other we can all get through this. 🙂

    • Yes @sheba2011,
      I am working with Microsoft One Note Now. I managed to get it going and will see how and when I can actually post a picture instead of a link. Take a look at the post with the one word links click on the link and it will bring you to my picture. You might have to wait a bit but it will come up. Hope you like them glad you are here.☺

    • Nice work Cupatea!!!

    • Hi @fbn135
      Not sure how long this will work. I am already having a problem with the last picture. I hope I do not have to pay money for it not sure about that either ☺
      Thanks for stopping in. Thanks again for your input in your earlier post.☺
      Your HSN friend,

    • @cupatea I have a question…why are you against using photobucket for a storage space? It works fine…It is free to use and they give you a lot of storage space. I have been using it for many years with no serious problems. Sometimes it works a little slow because of the ads but that is something you can live with.

    • @fbn135
      Because I did have problems with them and google. I got a few viruses on my computer and it seemed to come from third party programs. I never really had a trust in them. With that said because of this debacle I am more then likely going to have to go that route. I was reading the terms of agreement. I will see I think I am forced to use it here. We will see. I just like things to come from my own computer like before. Oh well have to go with the flow.
      Your HSN friend,
      Cupatea
      Thanks again my friend☺

    • I use 3 free programs to clean my computer every night…I have posted them here in the forum before. Do you clean up every time you shut down?

      • This reply was modified 3 days, 7 hours ago by  fbn135.
    • I do a disk clean up and a cookie clean up. I have my defrag set to automatic.
      I use Open DNS and Vipre I like open DNS because it blocks lots of off sites and you can set it up to the way you want it to with your router. It also keeps the traffic from the internet world abay.
      I like viper cause it is an excellent virus and malware protection it will let me know if a site is malicious. It will stop me from going in to it.

      That was back in the day when I got the viruses on my computer 80,90’s When they first came out. You never know what they are going to bring along and place in your registry.
      I just like to be very careful.

      I found out what happen to the pictures. I did it. I did delete them from my One Note. One Note comes along with window 10 and I am new to using it so lesson learned. I was having a problem with my last picture and thought I went over the limit of storage space. so I deleted them that is why no one could see them other then the scan n cut. I get it now so I am going to do a new post and hopefully get them back up.
      Thank you so much again my friend☺
      Your HSN friend,

  • @cupatea

    I saw it and that color purple is beautiful! Good luck I would like to see if you can
    post it. 🙂

    • @sheba2011

      Thank you Moon Goddess,☺ That picture is colored with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. I too really like the purple. I like purple myself. I used twelve markers and my scanncut2 drew out the design in black marker sharpie for me. I really like how this draws both of my machines drew very nicely. Love it just love it.
      Glad you like them hope you got to see the other pictures.
      Ok so for now I have all my pictures up. When I do some crafts I can now post up even if it is only a link for now☺
      Your HSN friend,

  • Hello. Do you know when the next all-day craft event is scheduled?

    • Hi @tg115
      It is May 9th 20017 ☺ hope you will be watching. I expect to see new items coming out.
      Thanks for stopping by☺
      Check out my pictures up 11th post down from the top.

      Your HSN friend,

  • Thanks so much for the quick reply. i am a big “supporter” of HSN Craft Days. It’s great to see the products demonstrated.

    I tried to view the pictures, but got an error message on all bu the picture of the scan n cut. It says something about the file not syncing.

    • Yup I was just coming here to say as much. They have been deleted so much for that. Sorry it was not my doing. I used to be able to post pictures up of my crafting in the old forum. I guess I am going to really have to use the true third party software to post up my own pictures. I thought I was on to something but I guess not oh well.

      Your are welcome at least you got to see that. I will go and take the links down so no one else gets that verb-age. Oh well Thank you so much for stopping in and letting me know too.
      Your HSN friend,
      Cupatea

  • Your cards are fantastic cupatea! I don’t think you will have any problems using Photobucket.

    • Thanks @velveteenrabbit7

      Thank you for the compliment☺ My Sweet Bunny. I will give it photobucket a go and see how it works out. I do have the One note going now. As long as I do not delete my own pictures from my note book then I am good to go.☺

      Glad you like my pictures of my silly crafting☺
      Your HSN friend,

  • @cupatea, Your crafting sounds wonderful!
    Love you nickname for the Queen!
