Digital embellishments, digital papers, digital stamps, digital brushes, digital templates are all digital delights that make my heart skip a beat. However, nothing can make my heart sing like the buzz and whir of a digital die cutter machine!
There is nothing better than taking a digital creation from my computer to paper by using this little piece of electronic genius!
There are so many options of electronic dieuctters and accompanying software programs available today. Whether you create on a Cricut, Pazzles, KNK, Wishblade, Craft Robo, Sillouhette, E-Clips, or E-Craft you are a hybrid scrapper in action!
Take a look at the following projects cut with an electronic die cutter, then give one a try on your next project. Hybrid has never been so much fun!
