Thanks for the helpful info, Arizona
Can someone please confirm or correct me====>: If I understand correctly, I can manually rubber stamp an image, import that stamped image to my computer (i.e. via scanner or photograph) and then I can use the designer software that's included with the Portrait to create a register/outline of the manually stamped image that's saved on my pc (as long as the stamped image is saved on the pc as one of the correct file extensions that's compatible with the Portrait) and use the Portrait to cut that stamped image out?
I just read the info on Silhouette's website and it seems this might be the machine for me. I'm computer saavy, but I know nothing about ecutting machines and it's really important to me that I could cut images that I stamped manually.
