KNK Retreat

Attended a retreat in Columbus, Ohio to learn my new Klick n Kut Eagle. It is one tremendous die cutting machine that I got because of its huge 24x27"mat. Sandy, our extremely knowledgeable and helpful instructor was just awesome and I can still hear her telling us to cut, cut, cut! Here are some of the show n tell  from the attendees and some of the projects we worked on while learning about the software and the KNK machines. Sandy gave us a very detailed book with tons of info and many, many videos to take home. It was such a learning experience and so much fun!
