You can laugh, but I haven't touch my electronic die cut machine in about 4 years.  The last time was when we were making house signs with my DSILs.  One of the many reasons I guess is because I am scared.  Yes. Intimidated too.  I have been using the original Cricut Expression for many many years, and after a thorough research, and decided to switch to Brother Scan N Cut 2.  I do not want any more cartridges.  Although it took me a long time to let my Cricut Expression and Cricut cartridges go.  I passed them on to a beginner crafter.  I know they will be in good hands. But don't tell anyone, I saved my most favorite Cricut cartridges for a "just in case" kind of thing.  Now that I have an area solely for my "Brother", I have no more excuse to ignore this machine.

For about 3 years now, I have been using 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils in daily life (I am loyal to the Young Living brand).  I make a lot of DIYs - from soaps to cleaners, etc. etc.  Last week, I finally got the courage to use my Brother Scan N Cut 2 and make some vinyl labels for my home made stuff.  This project made me realize I made the right choice for my electronic die cut machine.  I was able to use any font I like from my computer.  Though it has been 4 years, after reviewing some video tutorials online, I was back on track.  It was like riding a bycicle.

I was very giddy after making these labels.  Now my DIYs look a lot cooler, aside from the fact that they are awesome and without harmful chemicals.  I will be making a lot more labels for sure.
