So!

I have been lusting after the Sizzix eClips but man oh man was it EXPENSIVE. Finally, FINALLY! It came down to a price I could afford, and even better with a coupon code. Sweet! And my favorite cutting software has a special edition to use special features on it. Yay!

I just did a really intricate cut on it right now with the software. It is a design that I KNOW my Cricut Expression would have CHEWED it up into a hot mess. The eClips, however, cut it out no problem!

Better yet: I have managed to sell my Cricut Expression along with about 8 carts (I still have a few left, however) to pay for this upgrade to the eClips.

I shipped off the carts and Expression to the eBay winners. Went to lunch with the beau, and when we got back, the eClips was on my doorstep. I was less than a 4 hours without a die cutting machine. LOL

I'm REALLY excited!!! It's got a LASER! (pew! pew! pew!) I love it already.

Congrats on that new toy . I have not even had the time to look at the new items coming out for papercrafting and die cutting. I know there has been a lot of upgrades . I won't part with my cricut however even if I add the eclips.. as I have too many cartridges for it that I love.

THANKS for posting though. It will inspire me to look at the new stuff soon.

So, where did you buy it and how much was it. Go ahead.. enable me.

Ha!

I got it for $215 and change, with $10 shipping from OhMyCrafts.com. I had to use a coupon code to get 20% off. They're normally $269.

In fact, I have a coupon code for 25% off any order over $200 if you want that code, howzat for enabling?

Then I purchased the eCal software at Sure Cuts Alot, craftedge.com.

I made the money back from the Cricut and carts sale (and I still have some carts, if you're interested, btw) to have purchased the eClips and the software. In fact, I made more money from the sale.
