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.

Car Decals made with Vinyl

Nicole had seen the post I made last year showing the car decals I made for my children's sports.  You can see them here:

Sports Decals

She wanted to know how I had removed some of the "lines" from the Volleyball and put in the volleyball player, my daughter's name and school name.  These were created with Design Studio and the Sports Mania Cartridge.  I used the "hide contour feature" in DS to hide the lines that I didn't want to cut.  It is very simple to do and they recently updated the Gypsy software so that hide contour is now available on the Gypsy as well.

I had to answer here on the blog as Nicole didn't leave me an e-mail address to contact her at.  I hope she comes back to find my answer!  LOL  Please be sure to leave me an email address in any comments if you need me to get back to you directly.  Thanks for stopping by.
