So much time has passed since March that I don't remember if I had mentioned I had got in on the pre-orders for the new Pazzles Vue, if I hadn't well then I guess you now know that I got my Pazzles Vue! It arrived on Tuesday and I haven't had much time to play with it but I did at least do a few test cuts.
The first cut I did was straight from the tutorial in the little booklet and I know I took a picture and posted it on Facebook but for the life of me I can't seem to find it so I can share it here! Anyway it cut like buttah! The mat for the Vue is a bit different than the original mat if you are going to do Print and Cut and I need to find out if that is the mat I need to use for regular cuts as well...I haven't read that far.
I can imagine your shock to see the first PNC was a ladybug! HA HA HA I was really impressed with the evenness around the image with the very first attempt. I did see how to make the cut closer but haven't tried it yet.
The machine maybe a bit more quiet than the original but again I am not sure since I haven't used it much. I will say that new mat was super sticky, and right now still is, and in my excitement I am sure I didn't prep the mat as well as I should have.
The software that comes with the Vue seems like it is going to be easier to learn than I thought and it does have a lot of features like Make the Cut. I am however waiting patiently for MTC to get the plug-in for the Vue so I can go back to using it. Hopefully I can start playing with the new machine soon and get to know this machine as well as I have my machines in the past.
