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.

ITunes Gift Card Holder - Any size bug - George, Plantin SB, or My World Carts

 Happy Wed!  Plus, Happy, Happy, Happy!!!!  Just a little more then 12 hours before the Gypsy Premier is launched by ProvoCraft on HSN!!  Are you waiting with baited breath?!!  I am, as I have already pre-ordered mine from HSN yesterday and it is SUPPOSE to be delivered to me tomorrow!!!!  Can't wait!!

In the interim, I have had the idea of an "itunes gift card holder" shaped like an ipod dancing around in my head for a while now.  Just hadn't gotten around to it!  The story of my life it seems - getting " around to it!" Well I finally took the time to do one.  I was feeling so good about it once I had it made that I then proceeded to make sure that I have hopefully taken care of most everyone with a Cricut machine!  I have created files for the smaller bugs and the Expression.  I have used George, Plantin Schoolbook, or My World cartridges to create 4 files.  Hopefully, one of them works for you.  If not, you can always use one of my files as your "pattern" and recreate it with a cartridge you do have.  If you don't have George or Plantin Schoolbook, they would be a great "gift" to yourself from the Cricut Rewards site.  So many people use these two cartridges to create a lot of their .cut files that they share.

As always, I don't require a comment to get my files but I do like to get them and even more so, like to see what people do with my files.  It encourages me to keep creating and sharing!

If you have one of the smaller bugs like the Personal (Baby) or Create machine I have created one file using the George cartridge.  You can Download the BabyBug Itunes Gift Card Holder here.

If you have the Expression machine, you can pick between 3 files that I have created. 

The first file was the first one I created using the actual IPod image from the My World cartridge.  You can Download the Expression/My World ITunes Gift Card Holder here.

The second file I have available for the Expression uses the George Cartridge only.  You can Download the Expression/George ITunes Gift Card Holder here.

The third and final file I have available for the Expression uses the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge only (although the "This Project" will show George and PS! - it's only PS I promise!).  You can Download the Expression/Plantin Schoolbook ITunes Gift Card Holder here.

Note:  This fits the "smaller" size ITunes gift cards that are a little bigger then 2 x 3.  The final completed size of the gift card holder is approximately 2 1/2" x 4".

I just did a couple "quick" mockups to make sure my cut files all worked and to show you what they would look like if you were "playing a song" on the Ipod. I would spend a little more time on my "buttons" and "screen" when I made it to give as a gift. 

They would make great stocking stuffers at Christmas!
The final picture shows you where to score and fold should that not be obvious to you. Have a great day!
