First try and first cut in my new cutting machine. I had some problems releasing it from the cutting mat, although I followed the instructions to curve the mat and pull straight. So it is a little bit curved. But I enjoyed all the process, sure I will try new cut outs ! Thank you very much for this class, the explanations are very clear and projects are beautiful. At this moment I don’t have plain coloured cardstock, so I tried only on white. The letters are hand drawed (it’s not a font). Thanks for explaining how to retouch letters so we don’t loose the internal parts of letters like R, A, B... I always relied on fonts already made for stenciling, but I learned how easy is to modify them.
