Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) Overview

Recently I have received a number of emails asking me about Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) and what it can do so I thought I would put together a short demonstration including an overview of SCAL features, how to weld, and how to quickly and easily make a shadow for your welded word.

I made this card a few months ago, but had to share since it is one of my favorites. To make this cute card, I purchased an SVG file from SVG Cuts and made the following modifications. I used my all time favorite flower from the George cartridge to make the flower, and my second favorite tool, the Cuttlebug.

I am addicted to the 8 inch by 8 inch paper stacks from DCWV because they have smaller sized prints that are perfect for making cards or smaller die cuts. For this project, I used the Café Mediterranean stack that I purchased from Jo-Ann Fabrics.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoyed this brief introduction to SCAL.

Linda, this looks amazing. I may have to buy SCAL.

Great video. I have SCAL, but don't use it as much as I could. I learned a couple new things from your video. Thanks so much.

Denise, you are so welcome. Thanks for the nice comment!

I so love the welded shadow feature!

I know this will probably be removed but the post is for you (not your readers, so that is OK). You really should download and try Make-the-Cut! software. I tried SCAL and then MTC and was surprised at how much more I can do with MTC. Do yourself a favor and try it! I wish SCAL had been so easy to use! I am not down-talking SCAL, but every single person that has both will say that the use MTC almost exclusively. I am not an affiliate with MTC, just a user.

Thanks for the comment. I have not tried MTC, but it sounds interesting. I will look into it!

So cute! I may have to relearn my SCAL (only have version 1) as I haven't used it in a long while. I get my SCAL files from too.

You will so love version 2. Lot's of new functions.
