I have some more examples of using the Custom Cutting System (CCS), and no it is not a machine as someone thought. That is the beauty of this system you don’t need a machine to use it – well unless you call your hands a machine :).
The way the CCS works – it has a groove into which you place the cutting tool – if you look closely you can see the two little buttons, they go into the groove and the yellow you can see is the blade shaped like a ‘V’ which allows you to cut either direction..
To get the most out of the CCS you need to have all three blades: blue, red and green. The three blades give you the different sizes. You can cut on the outside of the guides as well as the inside, which means you can get 6 different sizes of whichever style you want – circles, ovals, rectangles or squares, oh and there is also a hexagon one. If you watch the video here you can see how it works, there are a couple of other videos which also show the border maker. Once you’ve watched the video you’ll want to get your own, which you can do here.
This one shows the CM Cutting mat, the hexagon CCS and the three blades. You can see the grooves into which the 2 “buttons” fit and guide your cutting blade around the shape. Also, a handy point with each of the shapes they have little “feet” doesn’t lift them off the paper, they just help the shape guide to stay in place so it doesn’t move while you cut. The video is a helpful tool to show you exactly how to use these wonderful, portable cutting tools.
Now for photos of the examples I promised.
The next two show the different shapes available and also the wavy ones which come as a paper trimmer.
Enjoy the photos and videos. Cheers for now.
