Happy Hump Day...and another video!

Good Morning Everyone!!! How about this.....2 posts in as many days!!  Feels GREAT to be getting back into the swing of things!!  I've truly missed this.....

A couple of months back we purchased a new home (not a NEW home...but new to us)....we lived in the county before and we moved into the city......Well....out in the county our internet SUCKED even though we had DSL it was awful!!!  Since moving into the city (which is still a very small town) the internet provider we have has cable internet and the speed of it is SOOOOOOO much better and faster!!  What used to take me 2 days to upload a video....now takes me about 10 to 15 minutes!!! WOWZERS!!!  I was so thrilled this morning......so I am definitely motivated to do more videos......

Get back on track Penny!! LOL  Sorry......got sidetracked over my excitement of an actual GOOD internet connection.....Yesterday in my video I shared with you what a wonderful teacher I feel Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is with the Brother Scan and Cut tutorials....her personality seems so bright and cheery I truly enjoy watching all her videos....feels like a friend I've never met....

Well...while watching her very informative videos...one in particular she had done a live Q&A session for her viewers to ask questions about the BSC2 machine.......someone had inquired about doing a fill design with the BSC2...meaning the person wanted the machine to be able to fill the inside of say a font or whatever they might want.....Julie had shared that at that point it was not able to do that.....

Being a person who has created files for close to a decade now....I knew I was able to create engraving files or "filled files" and there are several programs that will allow you to do it.....and I was most confident that if I created the file the BSC2 would indeed "fill" the inside of the font or whatever item I wanted filled......so I set out on my mission.....and I was indeed correct......

It's super easy and I think you will love the ability!!!  I decided to work up a video to explain exactly how to do it and show you how simple it really is....especially when you're using the right software.....So here's the video if you wanna check it out....


Isn't that COOL!!! And like I shared....SUPER easy!!!  I know so many of us own the SCAL4(Pro) software now because of all the different cutting machines out there and Brandon has done such a phenomenal job engineering the software to work with most all of them.....so if you have the software why not utilize it...right????  I will say...I think it is MUCH easier to create the "fill file" in SCAL4(Pro) over Inkscape (which I LOVE), Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator...as with those 3 programs you would have to end up doing tweeking in most cases.....but with SCAL4(Pro) you see I did absolutely no tweeking to make the file perfect for using! Kudos to Brandon!!

Here's a still pic of the embossing I did on the files I drew out with the BSC2

I really hope you enjoyed this idea and you might find it useful in your future projects!!!  If you have any other things you would like to see....Please drop me a comment below and let me hear from you!!  As I've shared I truly do want to delve completely back into sharing as I have for so many years!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by to visit with me!! I do hope you'll come by again...and I would like to wish you all a very blessed day!!! Until next time....
