PI Day Projects

I know, I know...another bleach resist shirt? I mean really how many can one person make?!  Buuut, my darling daughter told me on Friday night that she needed to do a PI Day project and it was due on Monday. I know PI Day was on Friday  the 14th but they had a teacher work day, so they celebrated it today.   Since bleach resist is such and easy thing to do; I suggested we make a shirt.  We also took mini Moon pies and used hand sanitizer to remove the "e" from the word pie so she had 24 Moon Pi's. She was happy with both projects and her class mates were very happy to get their Moon Pi'

Inspiration Vue™ Pre-Order Information

Introducing the Inspiration Vue™.  The powerful creative cutter you know and love, with sleek new upgrades and in fresh trendy colors!  With the release of the Inspiration Vue we bring you patent-pending precision print and cut, brand new Mac and Windows compatible InVue design software, enhanced mat feeding and stability, and even more cutting power. All of this at a reduced price. The Inspiration Vue is a DIY crafter’s dream.
We’ve answered a few of your burning questions in our FAQ post but we know you are excited and want every detail. Keep reading to the bottom of this post for details on a pre-launch party Monday March 10.
Precision Print And Cut
The Inspiration Vue features a new optical eye to make Print And Cut projects easy and accurate. Our revolutionary new system scans the actual page to determine cutting placement. It is not necessary to use registration marks, thus reducing paper waste. Registration marks can be turned on for enhanced accuracy, or for those who prefer registration marks. The result is accurate cuts around images you have printed on your home computer.
Mac and Windows Compatible Software
The new InVue design software will be shipped in the box with the Inspiration Vue machine. You’ll find several fun features within the software suited for Print and Cut designs such as a slider to set color transparency, and transparent PNG importing. The InVue software will allow you to open SVG or WPC files directly onto your page and then save them directly to a SVG or PVG (Pazzles file type) file. One of the most exciting features of the InVue software is that it will be fully integrated with the Pazzles Craft Room so it will be easy to access your downloaded files. Initially the InVue software will be available with the machine, but it will be available for purchase as a stand alone product as well. The InVue  software will work with both the original Inspiration and the Inspiration Vue. Watch for more details coming soon. We will also be selling Inspiration Studio Pro 2014 software soon. Studio Pro 2014 is for Inspiration and Inspiration Vue users who want to take their design skills to an advanced level.
