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.

Sock Monkey for Make The Cut (version 2.2.1)

Hello friends.  Well, as most of you may know from reading my blog I have 2 Cricuts, Design Studio, a Gypsy, SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) and MTC (Make The Cut).  As a result, I post a variety of files here.  Some have mulitple files types and some only one.  :(         (This has a lot to do sometimes with my limited amount of time as the mother of two very active middle school aged children). However, if you ever see one of my files you would like and I haven't provided it in a format that works for you, just leave me a comment at the end of that post. Simply click on comments and leave me a note requesting another format.  I won't promise that I will make it in another format or how long it will take for me to do it in, however, I will look into it and try to do so if I can when time permits.

This file is one of a Sock Monkey.  However, to date, I only have the file available for Make The Cut (MTC) version 2.2.1 with its use of layers. 

I really like this feature of MTC.  I haven't had a lot of time lately to play with this new version, but so far, I really like what I have seen.  You can download a trial version (or purchase the full version!) of MTC by going to their website at You can use all the features of MTC in the trial mode, but it will cut a watermark through the images until you purchase a licensed version.  I think it is a great enhancement to the arsenol of tools for use by Cricut owners.

You can download my sock monkey file for MTC here.  As always, this file is for personal use only.  Please let me see what you do with this file if you do use it.  Leave me a comment f you have any questions or problems with this or any of my other files.

Also, if you are new to my blog - check out my older posts.  I have a variety of cut files for Design Studio, Gypsy, SCAL, MTC and .svg files for use with both SCAL or MTC.  You might find something else you like.  There are lots of gift card holders, treat bags or boxes, a cupcake box, and lots more. Plus, DazyCutr has shared some pretty great looking cards here.   Let me know if I can help with something you need but can't find. Thanks for stopping by!
