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.

More Shaped Cards - Ice Cream from Doodle Charms and 2 Paper Pups Cards

Here are a few more examples of shaped cards that I have recently done. They will work with any size of the bugs. DazyCutr (Rheba) from the Cricut MB and I have been getting together to do things for a few weeks now. She wanted me to show her some of the basics with the Design Studio software. So I thought I would show her how to do basic shaped cards. Since she is the Queen of the Paper Pups I knew just which cartridge to use! I also used the ice cream cone from Doodlecharms and created an ice cream cone card. You really don't need .cut files for any of these cards as they are really very simple to do. However, I will post the .cut files just in case someone wants them. Looking at them would also be a great way to "see" how to do a simple shape based card like this.
Download the Ice Cream Cone card here. Note the Ice Cream Code Card used the Hide Contour feature to hide parts of the ice cream. Usually, this doesn't "save" in the file. We'll see!Download the Two Pups cards here. Finally, download the Smile Dog card here.
