Birthday Freebie!

I have another freeĀ  file that you can cut with your cricut if you have SCAL software for you today! It is a photo mat to match the party hat from yesterday. I had a party hat card and some punched circles left over from making the invitations so I decided to whip up a quick page:

Stamps: Pink Persimmion, Paper and Cardstock: DCWV, Die Cuts: My own design

Did you know that if you get published with stamps from some companies they will send you freebies? I was published in the September Vamp Stamp News using stamps from Pink Persimmon and they sent me this awesome banner set (and another I can’t wait to play with) for free! Get submitting! I love to scrapbook pages in advance, it really takes the pressure off and it is so much easier when you don’t have to try to fit a lot of photos in and if my colors don’t match the page I’ll print them in black and white!

OK I know you came her for the freebie so here it is:

Download the free flourished photo mat scut file here

Download the flourish SVG here (It is the same one from the peacock card so if you already have it you don’t need to redownload it but you need it in order for the scut to work!)

Here is a printable version (JPG) if you like to print and cut ;)

Don’t forget there is only a couple of days to save 10% on Sure Cuts a Lot 2, here is the code: 1847253 If you have a cricut machine you need this, I haven’t bought a cartridge since I got this software a year ago, it will let you cut most of the fonts on your computer and fonts and dingbats you download, it’s awesome!

That’s all for today, have a great weekend and happy crafting!

OSA Layout challenge 33 {and a freebie!}

Happy Tuesday! When I saw the sketch for this weeks layout challenge it immediately reminded me of the kaleidoscope scrapbook pages we used to make back in the day, there were plastic templates and hinged mirrors to help us crop our photos, Ahhh, memories….Well that had always been to fussy for me so instead of that I came up with this:

Stamps: About Art Accents, Paper: MME, Cardstock: Coordenations, SU!, Punch Martha Stewart, Die cut branch: Cricut/scal software using DB Asain Serenity font

Stamps: About Art Accents, Paper: MME, Cardstock: Coordenations, SU!, Punch Martha Stewart, Die cut branch: Cricut/scal software using DB Asian Serenity font

I used wonderful stamps from About Art Accents on this card, the look is simple but it was so fun to put together.

And I even have a scut file to make it even simpler that you can cut with your cricut if you have scal software, it will work in either version. The first shape is the mat, cut the other shapes out of pattern paper and slice the segments apart as shown. I also cut the branch in SCAL using the font DB Asian Serenity.

Download the star quilt card scut file here.

Or if you prefer a printable template you can download one here.

I’m off to enjoy the last few days of Summer vacation with the kids, til next time happy crafting!

Free Teacher Card Templates and Cricut Cutting Files!

Happy Weekend! My Hubby got the playhouse finished and it looks like we will have some good weather to be outside and play! The school year is winding down for us, only one week left, so it is time to finish up those last minute teacher cards and gifts. while were at it let’s not forget the person who delivers our children safely to school each day, the wonderful bus driver:

Stamp: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Templates: see below, To make the lights "shine apply double stick tape behind the holes on the yellow paper and sprinkle with glitter from the front.

I made both of these cards using my Cricut machine and Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) software. These are scut files rather than SVG files so you will need to have the font I used installed on your computer, its a great font called Inter and you can download it for free here. You will find a lot of useful dingbats on this font with a school and transportation theme.

Free downloads:

Here is the SCUT file for the Bus Card for Cricut/SCAL users.

Here is the SCUT file for the Apple Card for Cricut SCAL users.

Here is a PRINTABLE template for the Bus Card.

Here is a PRINTABLE template for the Apple Card.

Remember when you use a SCUT file in SCAL you open it rather than importing it and it will be all laid out to size, no resizing needed;)

Have a wonderful weekend and till next time happy crafting!

My free Cricut cartridges came today!!!

Minutes ago the fed-ex guy dropped off my cricut rebate cartridges that I sent for back in early January. I got My Community and Printing 101, With 3 kids in school I think they will come in quite handy! Since I got something free today I think I should give out a freebie too, pay it forward KWIM? I made this card inspired by this weeks sketch at 2 sketches 4 you and thought you might like the shaped card file so you can make one too if you have a cricut and Sure cuts a lot software:

stamps: Stampin Up!, Paper: MME, cupcake tag: Cricut

Download the fancy bracket plate SVG here. Download the SCUT file with the bracket plate sizes, welded and ready to cut here. You can use the SVG to shape paper or make journal spots, very versatile, enjoy!

I borrowed my Moms Doodlecharms Cartridge and used it to cut the cupcake tag then backed it with pattern paper but you could do the same thing if you have a circle and cupcake punch.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time happy crafting!
