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.

Rheba's Bunny - .svg or .scut File for SCAL

This is a bunny that Rheba brought to me and ask if I could recreate. The fastest way for me to do something like this is to use my scanner, Inkscape, and SCAL software as opposed to trying to figure out "shapes" to make it with in DS plus the other "issues" like inability to group objects, etc. So here is Rheba's bunny. He has a black "base" and then the white "parts". I left the face to be handrawn (or use some stamps from Peachy Keen!!) He came from a scrap piece of paper that Rheba had. Download Rheba's Bunny in .svg format here. Download Rheba's Bunny in .scut format here.

I will point out that I had trouble with SCAL "moving" pieces when I imported the .svg file which is why the parts seem to be "out of line". I tried and tried but it kept messing with the parts. It imports them in different places then the .svg file has them in! Anyone else had this problem? Know why? The way it is laid out, makes it difficult to get a "bigger" bunny unless you use a 12 x 12 mat. Couldn't figure out the issue! It imports and cuts fine.
