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.

Mickey "B-day" Invite - Baby, Create or Expression

PrincessScrappy-Do on the Cricut MB was looking for help with a Birthday party invite using one of my favorite things - Mickey Mouse! She didn't really give any details beyond a Mickey B-day party invite. So, this is one idea I came up with quickly. It's fairly large and would need an oversized envelope without sizing it down. (But sizing smaller could be done). Although it is laid out on an expression mat - you could rotate it side ways on the smaller 6 x 12 mat and it would cut out with the Baby or Create. It uses George, Mickey Font (for the head and face) and Mickey & Friends for the hands. Unfortunately - PrincessScrappy-Do wants a card that opens up and she doesn't have the Mickey Font cartridge so this file won't help her. :( However, I decided to go ahead and post it here on my blog in case someone wants it or to give "inspiration" for another idea. Download the Mickey B-day Party Invite .cut file here. (Picture to follow).
