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.

Card Making with DazyCutr

Hello. I hope to start posting regularly within the week! I'm sorry I have been neglectful of my blog. However, with the lack of comments it doesn't seem as if anyone has been missing it! LOL Today I went over to DazyCutr's (Rheba) from the Cricut Messageboard's house. We worked on a Winter card design while it was almost 90 degrees outside! Did seem to help cool things off! LOL Rheba always has wonderful ideas for cards. I think we make a great team - she's the creative genius and I'm her technical help! LOL She and I had both just gotten the A Child's Year cartridge this past week. We had held off for a while convincing ourselves we didn't need it! But at AC Moore's sale prices, we decided that maybe we did. LOL I got mine because our ACM did not have any of the new cartridges that I went seeking other then From My Kitchen. Still waiting on the other 3. So, we used the little girl with the snowman cut from A Child's Year, used core black paper backed with blue, the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, and then sanded the dots for the blue to show through. We then used the Martha Stewart Tree border punch and a snowman border stamp Rheba had to create the bottom image. I used green ink on the tree line and prisma pencils on the lineup of snowmen and the red heart and cardinal to help them "pop" off the card. The saying, "there's no business like "snow business"" was also a stamp that Rheba had. The whole "card" design was Rheba's layout, I just "implemented" my version of it! LOL Thank you Rheba! You may make a true card designer of me yet!
Nothing to share other then the card that Rheba designed and I put together! Remember, if you click on the picture it will open it in a bigger window so you can see the picture better.
