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.

Baseball - Make the Cut and SVG Files Available

Spring is arriving shortly which means my DS has moved on from basketball to baseball.  With that thought in mind, I knew that I needed to create some baseball items to make myself some T-shirts to wear to the school baseball games since I didn't have any yet.  Obviously, the main thing a girl needs is the baseball its self.  I found this free baseball clipart at and converted it into a cut file for use with Make the Cut.  I then exported it out from my Make the Cut file and saved it to an .svg file to share for those who have not yet moved to Make the Cut. 

The file has 2 parts.  The first part really has 3 pieces - this would be the "white" portions of the baseball with the "seams" cut away.  The second part is the red for the seams.  Cut out the red circle then ovelay the 3 white pieces on top of the red to show the red "seams".  It is probably easiest to do this by using transfer tape of some kind to transfer the white pieces off your mat and to lay it on top of the red.  I did it this way because  I think it is easier to cut it this way then to try and cut those little red seams.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns with this or any other of my files.  I always test cut everything before I share so you shouldn't have any problems. I'd love to see anything you create with one of my files.  As always, thanks for stopping by.
