Some Basic Information About My Site and My Files:

First a note about my files:

All my files are for personal use. I do not charge for any files I create. I share them here for others to use for personal use only. Please do not use them to submit for contests, etc. without getting my permission first. Please give credit where credit is due. I will try to do the same. This means I will try to identify where I got an item or a project if I didn't create it myself and there is an identifable source. Sometimes however I use basic clipart or coloring pages. You may however share these files with others for their personal use (you may not charge for them - you may pass them on for free) or you may point them here to my blog to get the files themselves. If a download file is available, it will appear at the bottom of the post and will be in a different color text.

PLEASE NOTE: I reside in the USA where we use the MM/DD/YYYY date format on computers (and in everything else we do!) If you are outside the USA where they use the DD/MM/YYYY date format on computers, you MAY experience an "Unhandled exception" error when you try to open one of my Cricut DS files. It is an error related to the date format. An easy fix is available at SusanBlueRobot's Blog. Susan has a simple HexEdit program and directions which will allow you to alter the date so you can use the files. Note: This is only an issue if the save date of the file is after the 12th of the month! It is also only an issue with DS files. I have never seen this issue with MTC or SCAL.

Slider Pop-up Cards & Envelopes - Two Sizes 3x4 and 5x7

Here are two "Slider Pop-up Cards" and envelopes for them. Notice the "message" area slides out of the top of the card and this causes the pop up to come out of the front pocket (Tinkerbell in my example). They were both created with the George Cartridge. One creates a 3x4 card and will work with any of the Cricut machines. The larger one creates a 5x7 card and therefore requires the Expression Machine. You can download the smaller 3x4 Slider Popup card .cut file here or the larger 5x7 Slider Pop-up card .cut file here. The picture shows the 5x7 card. I found the basic paper template for this last summer at the and created the .cut file for it back then.
