Ballerina Card Cutter File

After I cut this, I inked the edges, so that the details of the cut would show up better.
CLICK HERE to get the file to make your own card.

Why different Line colors are Important

Pen Tool Example

Here is a very basic sample of using the pen tool. You can use it to write letters, outline...or even add some swirls to a project. I love to use the dash lines. Also, don't forget your scissor can draw them instead of cut them.
I will share more examples of these as time goes on.

BTW, these are my two youngest children, Heather and Jared. I sure do love them.

The Good Stalker

Well, I didn't know it could happen, but it did. I have my very first I should mention, she is a GOOD stalker....not good in the fact that I don't know she is there, but good in the way that she is just so dang fun and nice.

I met Shannon for the first time in Pleasanton, CA a few weeks ago at the Scrapbook Expo. She immediately said..."Hi, I'm your stalker"...which I thought was quite nice...leaving me no guesswork. Here we are...hanging out in the booth.

Shannon has been so good for my self esteem and confidence...because she loves everything I do...LOL

Anyway, you girl and I'm looking forward to many more years of your kind of stalking....*grin

In honor of Shannon, I have created a cutting file...if you click on the picture, you can have it too.

I was unable to add the GSD file for download...however, if you will email me with "EASTER TITLE GSD" in the subject, I will be happy to email it to you.


New Free File-Easter Title

Sunday, March 23, 2008

I have been very busy the past few weeks traveling and teaching. I will share some of those stories a little have to hear about my "personal stalker" (as opposed to "personal shopper"), my one phone call from Alcatraz, my drive down Lombard street, etc...but that will be in future posts...hopefully, not too distant...*grin

In the meantime, I created an Easter title for you to use. You just need to click on the picture and it will take you to the files. Just download the one that works for your cutting system.

Let me know how you like it in the comments section....ENJOY!

PLEASE NOTE: For some reason, I cannot get the gsd format to load for those. I apologize, but hope you can use it in one of the other formats.

Goodie Box File

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

I received this little goodie box and CHA and just loved the size and shape of it.

Of course, I 'had' to have it, so I could create my own stuff if I wanted, so I took the box apart, scanned it in and created this cutting file.

If you click on the photo, it will take you to the cutting files....ENJOY!!

Sick of being Sick

Friday, March 07, 2008

I have been sick now for a couple of weeks. I still have no voice, but I do have to admit, I am finally starting to feel a bit better, even though I sound awful.

I had my convention last weekend here in Nebraska and had a great time, even though I wasn't feeling well. I was kind of bummed though, because I didn't get to visit as much as I usually do, because I simply didn't have the energy (or the voice). This is my 9th year of putting on these events, and I have the absolutely BEST people ever come to them. I LOVE when they start arriving and just HATE it when they leave.

Well, off to rest some more, energy is still low. I hope to share some more files very soon. I have been working on a few different things.
