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.

Volleyball Gift Card Holder

Here is a volleyball gift card holder I created a month or so ago. I used the Sports Mania cartridge (and maybe George for the square for the pocket). I used the volleyball shadow to create the front at I  and back black base and welded them together in DS.  I then added a "pocket" to the back base to hold the gift card.  This is done by welding a square to the bottom of the back circle base and then rectangles to the left and right of the square to fold in and glue to the base to form the pocket. The font volleyball shape was then cut out in white and added to the front.  I created this to give to my DD's Volleyball Coach for her end of the season gift from the team.  It could also be used to give a gift to your favorite volleyball player!

It could easily be adapted to be a basketball, baseball, tennis ball, etc.  Any "round" ball sport.   Just simply cut the front to be the ball shape that you need. I don't recall what cartridge the "Thanks" word came from off the top of my head!  You could also use congrats, You Did It, Way to Go, etc.  LOL

If you are interested in the .cut file for this leave me a comment and I will try to get it posted in the next couple of days.  It would be fairly easy to recreate without a file from me but I'll be happy to share if anyone wants my file, just let me know.  My comments are setup to be done anonymously so leaving a comment shouldn't be a problem!  I haven't had time to work on cleaning up the file and making it ready to post and its on a different computer which is why I'm not posting it right now!  LOL  Plus, this way I see who really wants the file! LOL
