Review of the KNK Force

Recently I was asked to review the KNK Force for an online site called Personal Die Cutting. If you are interested in learning more about this incredible one-of-kind machine, check out the review here.

A detailed comparison to other KNK cutters is presented in the comparison tables here at my site.

To check out the resources available for the KNK Force, visit a dedicated support page I set up, as well as Cutterpunk’s support page.

Many KNK Force owners have created some absolutely amazing things! If you are a Facebook user, visit the photos section of the KNK Force Facebook Group

Copics Boot Camp #6!

Copics Boot Camp

If you love Copic coloring or if you have invested in some Copic markers but are not using them to their fullest potential, then think about attending the Copic Boot Camp presented annually in Arizona. I can’t praise them enough!

Jennifer Dove has become a Copic guru! She’s published in several of the Copic coloring guides and is featured in the Annie’s Attic Copic videos. The wealth of information she shares at her retreats overshadows the Copic certification classes and workshops I’ve also attended.

Here’s a link to find out more about the upcoming retreat: Copic Boot Camp

This is a weekend you’ll never forget! I will be there and I hope you will be, as well!
