New FREE Cricut software and SVG freebies too!

OK, the biggest deal in crafting is happening now, the CHA Winter show. I heard-tell of some new software that Cricut is releasing to work with all Cricut models-even the Imagine-and it is 100% free and online. I do not know when it will be officially released but I bet this week. I found my info on the Cricut Facebook Page, I “liked” it so I will catch any news on the new program, gotta love free!

As you know I am a Sure Cuts a Lot girl! I love SCAL and being able to design my own die cuts as well as cut my computer fonts. I’ve told you many times that I love using the fonts and doodlebats from Lettering Delights, and I’ve also told you that they design many of Cricut’s cartridges. Well now they are in the SVG business and they have like 40 SVG sets for sale! Cool huh? and many are 40% off right now so check out all their new SVG designs!

They also have a free Monster love bundle up for grabs, download it now while it is free!

Don’t forget you can cut these cool SVGs in Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) software that is also on sale right now! These will work with Make the Cut software too BTW :)

All these sets are 40% off!

I’m gonna play with some of theses new SVGs today-inbetween helping DS with his pinewood derby car-it’s sure to get the creative juices flowing! Till next time happy crafting!

Hello Monday!

Egadz!  I have a kid home sick, 2 dozen cupcakes to bake, a flooded basement (aka craftland) and I still haven’t sent out my Christmas cards! If you are in the same boat here is another quick design you can make in minutes with the Winter Wear stamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

The steps for this are so easy:

  1. Emboss the front of a 4.25″x5.5″ with an embossing folder. Trim 1.4″ off the bottom of card.
  2. Rubber stamp the sentiment (optional because the digistamp has a sentiment too, I just like the flat box on this EB folder for additional stamping)
  3. Color digistamp image (or leave it if you are really pressed for time), trim with a circle cutter and adhere to card over a ribbon.

I made about 8 of these in 45 minutes the other day. I used my Envelope bonanza kit to make my envelopes for the card. The BBenvie SVG template will allow me to cut 2 envelopes from a 12″x12″ sheet of scrapbook paper so it saves me supplies and money. I cut them with my Cricut and SCAL2 software (A great gift for anyone on your Christmas list with a Cricut machine and SCAL2 is on sale for $59!) I also made some of these with the mittens die cut from free  Winterwear SVG set also cut with my Cricut and SCAL2 software.

Well, I better get some work done before my sick kiddo wakes up, thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Fun Favors and a Freebie!

I have been getting ready for my daughters’ birthday party all week and today I want to share the favor boxes and cupcake wrapper I made. I used the Pretty Favor SVG and the Alice ATC collage sheet sets which are both 30% off thru Friday along with everything else at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

I cut the favor box, banner and cupcake wrapper with my cricut, to see the entire banner please check out yesterdays post.

The favor boxes were cut with my Cricut MAchine and SCAL software (on sale $15 off!) using the SVG file in the Pretty Favor Kit (printable versions are included in the kit too if you don’t have a cricut) and they were so quick to make!

The best thing about these boxes is that they cut quickly. I get two 4"x5"x1.5" boxes from a 12"x12" paper. A bit of hot glue and the box is done!

I simply cut out and assembled the boxes, added fringe or flowers made from crepe paper party streamers and images from the Alice ATC collage sheet kit. This project qualifies for the following challenges: Crafty calendar (blue and flowers-the gift bag in the tip photo),   Our Creative Corner6 (fun with folds-folded, pleated, fringed crepe paper), Paper Take Weekly (inspiration-top photo), Pocket Full of Poises (flowers), Practical Scrappers (buttons), Scrappekammeret and Southern  Girls Challenge (anything goes), Scrappy Frogs (make your own flowers-on the gift bags in the 2nd photo)

When the kids got home from school I let them fill the boxes with candy and favors!

Here is a look at the kits I used:

How to make vinyl decals with your Cricut!

How would you like to make custom decals for your car, wall decor and signage for fun or profit with your Cricut machine? Sounds fun huh, it is easy too with Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) software! I had a customer request to make some stick people digital stamps with interchangeable heads and bodies so I made the People Mix and Match digital stamp set BUT I also made a SVG set too and included it in the kit, I used it to make this nifty decal for my van:

check out the tutorial below!

Here is a close up of the decal:

And here is a look at the People Mix and Match SVG/Digital stamp set:

20 digital stamps and cutting files!

Now on to the tutorial! It is a bit long and picture heavy so I have made a PDF tutorial that you can save, print and review when you go to start your next vinyl project. I suggest calling your local sign shop to see if they can save their scraps (which are always generously sized!) for you so you can practice. If you get serious about making signs and decals you can purchase wonderful vinyl, even chalkboard vinyl, by the roll. Check out the tutorial here:

Vinyl Decal Tutorial

Now for your freebie! I wanted to have a couple stick pets in the set but did not have room so I made a little freebie set for you :) Click the image to download.

Egg-cellent cards and freebies!

Wow, I never tire of egg related puns! Kinda odd seeing as I am a vegan and haven’t eaten an egg in over 15 years LOL! There is something about a pastel colored Easter egg that just makes me smile :) I designed the Cute Easter Digital stamp set in hope that it will make you smile too, here as my latest batch of cards from this set:

Digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Colored Cardstock: Co'ordantions, doublemates, DCWV, White cardstock for stamping: GP Image Plus, Punch: SU! & Martha Stewart (bird)

Digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Colored Cardstock: Co'ordantions, doublemates, DCWV, White cardstock for stamping: GP Image Plus, Punch: SU! & Martha Stewart (bird)

I am still smitten with my new Copic markers. I was having a hard time getting a large area blended smoothly though and I wanted a blue background on this card, I do not have the copic airbrush system but I have an actual paasche VL airbrush that I haven’t used since my kids were born so I dragged it out put some denatured alcohol and a few drops of “stream” alcohol ink (ranger) in the fill cup and sprayed me a nice smooth background. The only problem is it is so smooth I might as well have printed it on blue paper LOL!

This is my favorite card of the batch. I am getting this Coopic blending thing!

I printed my basket 2 times on white cardstock, I colored one and trimmed it closely. The other one I trimmed in a 4.5″x6.5″ rectangle and airbrushed it with blue then colored the basket with grey and adhered the other colored basket on tip with foam dots:

I had lots of fun coloring all of the elements on this card. I needed a little somethin’ in the top corners and I designed a photo corner svg to go there, download is below as a freebie as well as the word art used on these projects! To make the grass I simply used scissors to snip fringe from two strips of green paper and taped them on under my basket.

I used 3 shades of blue markers to color the large egg quickly!

I also fringed the green paper on this card. The cloud is a nesting SVG file from Penny Duncan that I cut with my Cricut and SCAL software and ren through my big shot, there is a tutorial on embossing with the cricut and big shot here if you want more info. The mat on the card below is also embossed with one of penny’s files:

A quick and simple card!

Now for the freebies! Click here to download 2 simple photo corner SVG files. One has scored edges that you fold back over the edges of a photo. (it is the one I used in my project) and the other is a glue on photo corner.

Lagniappe {a little extra!}

There is another celebration coming up besides valentines day…Mardi Gras! February 24 is officially Mardi Gras and I have had it on the brain ever since I started reading the Laura Childs scrapbooking mysteries that take place in New Orleans. That is the inspiration behind this new template set available at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff!  Also All of my products are 25% off at MyGrafico today and tomorrow, stock up folks!

Think of all the ways you could use these templates!

Here is a closer look at the Mardi Gras mask. I used purple, green and gold (traditional Mardi Gras colors) feathers to decorate it. I stamped the designs on the face and embossed them with gold tinsel EP before attaching the nose. The nose is a separate file and can be added to any of the masks, to use it fold it in half the long way then fold back the squared of corners and glue them together, that gives you a sturdy base to attach it to the mask.

Template: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Rubber Stamps: Inque boutique

I also included a card template for any costume party invitations you might need, I think it kind of looks like a fancy eye pillow so it would be cute as a spa party invite or even a bachelorette party invitation!

Use the enclosed card template to make cute invitations!

The Masquerade Mask templates come in SVG so you can cut them with a Cricut machine and SCAL software, and PDF so you can just print them on cardstock, cut and decorate, easy as pie…or Beignets!

I have also had banners on the brain this week! Here is a new set called Pretty Banners SVG that has 8 cutting files for adorable banners perfect to decorate your home for birthday parties and holidays! I have included jpg files as well if you want to hand cut them or convert them for another digital die cutter besides the cricut.

Beautiful banners to cut with your Cricut!

OK, the moment you have been waiting for….the weekly freebie! You can’t think about New Orléans without the Fleur-De-Lis coming to mind to I made a free set for you with 4 digital stamps and an SVG cutting file! If you have a cricut Machine but don’t have SCAL software yet I have a coupon for you to save 10% until January 18th: 9388463 On this scrapbook page I used my Cricut and scal software to cut the Fleur-de-lis shape and the orange mesh around the photo with todays freebie and I used a computer font for the title, talk about cheap and easy (BTW the fleur-de-lis is the symbol for Boy Scouts of America too!)

The flur-de-lis SVg is part of today's freebie (download below) the library card can be found in the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Shop for $1

Oh la la! A Fancy Tea Party! {and freebies!)

If you are a parent of a 5 year old girl you know all about Fancy Nancy. My friend Kathy and I (she also had 5 year old twin girls) decided to take our kids out Christmas shopping and to dinner the other night. We ate at Denny’s (does it get any fancier?) and when we asked one of Kathy’s daughters if she wanted breakfast or dinner she said “I’ll have Brunch, it’s Fancier!” And so was born the inspiration of todays project using the Winter Printables kit and the template from the 3-D advent calendar from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

Stamps, papers, templates: Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

I used the Cricut and SCAL software to cut my paper boxes form inexpensive white cardstock (GP from Sams club, 250 sheets for $7) then I trimmed the pattern paper from the kit with deco edge scissors to decorate the boxes. To make a two layer cake I just made 6 small boxes (use the template that comes in the kit with 2 boxes on one sheet) and 6 large boxes (use the template that has the instructions typed on it, you can crop the template before printing it so it will fill a whole sheet of cardstock and make a bigger box), I simply arranged them in a hexagon and stacked them. Easy Peasy!

This cake is made from favor boxes from the 3-D advent calendar, the papers and cupcake wrappers are from the Winter Printables kit all available in the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Shop!

The cupcake wrappers come in the Winter Printables kit and they are so simple, just print, trim and tape and you have the cutest cupcakes on the block!

The green paper is from the Winter Printables kit, the stamp and template are included in today's freebie!

For the invitation I cut the base out of pink cardstock and traced the front on to my green pattern paper from the Winter Printables kit, trimmed and glued to the front of the card. I used the free digital stamp from todays freebie kit to make the tea-bag tag. I changed the color to white and used my paint bucket tool to fill in the background with red before printing and trimming. I wanted the tag to look like a Salada tea tag because when I was 5 (til I graduated high school) I had tea (OK more like milk, sugar and a little tea) with Mom every morning and that was what we drank. now that I’m a mom I have my tea in the afternoon when my kids come home and If they want some I let them (but I made it a decaf) and it is nice ;) And I still drink Salada.

Here is a look at the new Winter Printables set:

All this crafty goodness for only $4!

On this card I used the free gingerbread clip art (see freebie pack below) and the scalloped rectangle from the embossed mats set (I adjusted the color to green) and typed “Happy Holidays” over it and printed it out as one image on a piece of cardstock that was my card base. I punched 2 holes and threaded a shot piece of ribbon through and viola: a card in 3 minutes!

Stamps/elements: Lindsay's stamp Stuff

I just did this card this morning, I printed one of the card base sheets from the new Winter Printables kit and cut it in half (you get two cards for one sheet) and folded it. I used the Gingerbread svg file from the freebie pack (I cut it with my cricut and scal software) and glued that on my card over one of the tags from the 3-D Advent Calendar set, then I cut a slit on the fold of my card for my ribbon and added that and finally I added the happy holidays tag also from the Winter Printables set. I added a punched tab at the top and over it an element from the Christmas Cupcakes set. As you can see all of the stamp set from Lindsay’s stamp stuff coordinate beautifully together ;)
