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:

Howdy folks, I hope you are having an excellent weekend. I have a new freebie for you today but first I want to show you two cards I made with thursday’s freebie and mention the Fathers Day sale going on at MyGrafico, Save 25% on everything at Lindsays Stamp Stuff including the new sets I added this week!

Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Papers: Lilybimble all available at mygrafico.com

I use the stick dog and cat freebie that coordinated with the People Mix  & Match set for the focal point of the card. The adorable papers are from the Maribelle collection form Lilybimble, a talented new designer at MG. I simply chose to print the papers in my photo software selecting 4 to a page, that shrunk the pattern making it perfect scale for cards.

BTW the cards here qualify for the following challenges: Creative Card Crew (thank you) and Creative Cottage (it takes two: Card and a matching envelope).

Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Paper: Autumn Leaves, Font: LD Noodge

Aren’t they fun! I’m not sure if I like using the digital stamps of the SVG designs better, they are both a lot of fun! Now the stamps I used in the cards a free in my shop but I had a customer request for faces with curly hair to match the people in the mix & match set so here they are, click to download:

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)

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.
