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.

BookMarks for Emily - Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge

Emily (FboPhotoMama) on the Cricut MB wanted help creating some bookmarks. She only has the trial version of the Design Studio (DS) software, the Expression, and the two cartridges that came with it, Accents Essentials and Plantin Schoolbook. She wanted to have bookmarks that had an "overlay" to them to add a cut-out design and then layer them together on one. The other one she wanted a daisy on the top and then a daisy to layer on the top of the card. Hopefully you can "see" this from the pictures I posted above! Since Emily had the Expression, I created the .cut file for it. Download the Bookmarks/Expression Size .cut file here. I then went back and removed some of the bookmarks so that it could be used with the smaller bugs as well. Download the Bookmarks/Baby and Create Size .cut file here.
