Fairy Cut Software

First off let me say... I LOVE MY CRICUT EXPRESSION!!! I use my E every day creating something for family and friends! I use it to cut out words, shapes, chipboard books, vinyl quotes, etc. YOU NAME IT I HAVE CUT IT OUT!! I own more carts than I want to put in writing : )

With that being said I have been looking for a program where I can use ANY of the fonts I have on my computer that I love to use! Also, I am now a PROUD Gammy to 2 beautiful girls and 1 LOVES Strawberry Shortcake so I am limited by my carts to create layouts for her. I heard of "Fairy Cut" and thought I would get it try, so off I go and download the trial version. Can I say??? I LOVE IT!!! So EASY to use and I am just getting started, I need my husband to go out of town for business so I can PLAY all the time with this!! Sorry but it seems he likes to eat after working all day... MEN!

Check out their website and download the Trail Version. Fairy Cut offers online training videos and support, check out their Facebook page!/Fairycut

Be watching my Blog for LOTS of creations made using Fairy Cut.
Thanks, Charlotte
