Oh I did a Video!!!

Oh dear me well that was a bit stress full!!
I have had questions about my Happy Cut machine, and making video's is something I have been thinking about for a while to do with DT work, and my own creations, so today I took the plunge and did my first you-tube video!
Now how do I get you lot to view it, and how to set up a new page with links to videos I will do in the future?
Happy Cut and Plates Video. Its the first of a series on the Happy cut, but it might be a bit on the quiet side, so please turn the volume up!! For some reason I cant get the sound to go any louder, as my PC has assigned it to Skype and wont let me change it around!!

Please let me know what you think, as I am really nervous now!!

Hi, I too bought a Happycut, mine was also from Samuel Taylors. I'm quite new to card making and had no experience of die cutting and embossing machines. I had wanted a machine for over a year and I thought about it long and hard, I considered all die cutting machines from the Cuttlebug, the Joy and the Grand Calibur. I was on the verge of buying the Grand Calibur when a friend told me about the Happycut and that Samuel Taylors are stockists. I saw the Happy and loved the neat compact design, the trays are a brilliant idea and I use the top of the machine as a work surface for putting the sandwiches together. Because I'd never used a die cutting/embossing machine I wasn't sure how to go about choosing the appropriate plates but after getting help from a friend and excellent help and support from Sue at Samuel Taylors I am now die cutting and embossing with great confidence and enjoying every minute. I will certainly be buying more crafting items from Samuel Taylors fully confident that they provide such good after sales service. The difference that this machine has made to my cards is tremendous, they look so much more professional. I also love the way the handle fits into the little compartment on the top of the machine, along with a pokey tool, low tack tape etc. It is such a neat machine, no sticky-out bits, it lives permanently on my crafting table - always ready for action. I used all sorts of embossing folders including Couture Creations and haven’t needed to buy any additional plates. I thoroughly recommend this machine and Samuel Taylors

Fab video and having the extra plates is a really good idea, it also looks as though it's probably a bit sturdier than the calibur too, my partner brought me the calibur for my birthday at the end of last year and it broke after only 4 months, I am still waiting to see how much of a fight I will have on my hands to get it replaced lol

Hi Lou

that was really informative. I've never heard of the Happy Cuts - how was that never on my radar??? lol.

You did a great job of explaining the machine, what it did and what the different plates were for and which ones you would need with different dies or folders. I'm off to google one now and will be looking at Samual Taylors too.

Hope you are well. You should keep on making the videos - you sounded clear and confident and thats all you need to do. It was a little quiet - thank goodness the kids weren't near by when I tried to listen!!

Take care
