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.

Rain Boots - Make the Cut and SVG Files Available to Download

We had a big rain storm the first of last week that caused a lot of localized flash flooding in a number of areas.  So when I was looking for bunnies last week during all that rain, I ran across these rain boots and thought that they were cute and would make a great file to share.  After all, April Showers are just around the corner!!  LOL

There are several layers to this file.  One is the base puddle that outlines all around the boots, then there is another top puddle layer that adds dimension to the puddle.  You will want to cut each of those layers out in two different shades of blue.  Then there is a shadow layer of the boots themselves that I cut out in black and the top layer of the boots with different pieces and parts to them.  I choose to make them yellow!  You can of course make your boots any color that you choose.  Since there are several pieces and parts to them, you may want to consider using transfer tape of some kind to keep them all lined up and together properly for placement on the black shadow.  You could do the same for the puddle pieces. This is one of the reasons I prefer to share the MTC files as oppose to the svg files.  In MTC, you can see the layers in color but if I export it out to an SVG file all the layers are exported and then imported all in one color making it more difficult on the end user to know how the pieces and parts go together.

Hope someone can find a use for these boots.  If you do, I would love to see what you did with them.  As always, thanks for stopping by.    By the way, did anyone notice that I have now posed something on my blog EVERY DAY for TWO WEEKS (well business weeks at least)!!  That is a record for me!!!  LOL  I'm not sure I can keep up with this break neck speed of sharing!!  It's wearing me out!!  LOL  I've still got almost 3 full weeks left in March before I could claim a whole month of posts.  Doubt I'll get there - but hey, I won't say never just yet!!  Have a great weekend!
