  1. Hi Jim,

    I hope all is doing well down in TX. I have 2 questions for you :-).

    With your older kits that you can buy the tutorial, is there some one that could cut out that I could pay? I do have a Crucut 3 but wow it takes ages and it is not clean 2. If number 1 cannot happen do you have any recommendations of a cutter that would do the work? I have looked into them and I know they are a few thousands of dollars. I need something that would just do my projects not all the ones you do for others.

    Thanks, Fussypoodle :-)
