The first one is on how to cut out your Digi Stamps or Images with using only Inkscape and Sure Cuts Alot programs.......here's a sample of my digi stamp that I cut out using the tutorial on my website:




It's very easy and you do not have to use any graphics programs like Corel or Adobe....for those that are not familiar with those type programs...

The name of the Tutorial is:

K-block city

Just emerging from months of corporate video mayhem. Started a new project smearing Ken Block from DC shoes today. - working with Davy Force on this one. Should be up in a few weeks. I think this will be a pretty crazy video.

Good Evening.....



I hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday....Mine was very nice.....I did accomplish one card and had a dinner at our home...Hubby smoked several types of meat and I made the fixins' YUM YUM!!!  I completed another card for an order I have...This is a birthday card  I used one of the card files I have previously created and shared on My Website Cut Files Page



 
 
I really like the way this card turned out....The lady this is for is celebrating her 84th Birthday and loves Chocolate....so I was trying to make it look like a fancy chocolate store......Kinda achieved that look I think......In case you're wondering this is the Card File I created a while back.....If you like the File you may click the image and it will take you to My Website Page where you can download the svg file for free
 
Well, that's my creation for today.....I still have several things to complete so I do hope you will check back with me again......I want to, as always, THANK YOU for coming by to visit with me........I hope everyone has a very blessed Monday...until next time!!

Good Evening.....Or Morning....

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!! I'm not really sure whether it's still night time or morning...LOL...as I sit here typing this it is 3:33 a.m......I've yet to go to bed.....I have SO many things on my TO DO list I don't have time for sleep!!!! LOL  I DID get a chance tonight to play with paper.....OMG it's been SO long and it felt SO good!!!!! ;)  I have SEVERAL cards I've received an order for....plus several swaps I owe ......


One of the cards I have to make is for an 11 year old little girl.....She like's kitties and Halloween....so I thought why not incorporate the 2 together......So I did....I created the cut files for this completely from scratch and I'm very very tickled with the way it all turned out...even if I do have to say so myself.... check it out.....


 
 
As you can see I shared several angles so you can see all the details, the layer behind the top of the card is a silky fabric that has silver spider webs on it....I thought it was a cool accent to the card!!......I had SO much fun making this card.....and LOVE the POP UP technique I did in the middle.....Now the insides of my cards won't be so boring!!!!!  Just think of the ways you can personalize a persons card your creating......their names, their ages.......there favorite sayings...OMG it's AWESOME to think about!!!!  If you missed the tutorial I shared on how to do this technique you can watch it from the tutorial page of MY WEBSITE It's the first tutorial on the page.....

Also, as always I'm attaching the files I designed and created for this card......IF you would like to have the files you may click on the images below and it will take you to the page on My Website where you may download the SVG file for free.....









Ok.....now either I get some sleep or I'm going to be a zombie!! LOL....As always, I want to THANK YOU for taking time out of your day to stop by and visit with me!!!!!

Smear Gold

Shawn McPherson took this angelic photo of me for his Trophy Project.... Kind of embarrasses me to see how damn hot I am.

live internet tonight

We'll be going live from Ed video tonight -
Let's Paint TV + you'll see Smeary #2's space ships for those of you who won't be able to make it to Guelph.

Got to http://www.letspainttv.com at 8:00 pm

Should be fun!

Good Morning....





I hope everyone is having a FANTASTIC day today......The past couple of days I've had a couple requests for some tutorials on how to make a cupcake wrapper, how to create a custom sized box and how to get fonts to work well.....So, I thought....why not work up some more tutorials.......So I did just that....

The first tutorial I created was on creating/designing a cupcake wrapper.....I designed and created the below image of the cupcake wrapper template and you can download the svg version from it on  MY WEBSITE
under the Food CF section.  Here's the Mockup I created of the file I designed from my template

This is the cut file I created for the image you see above......If you would like to have this file in the svg format you can download it from my website by click on the image of the file and it will take you to the page on my website to download it from.


Turned out kinda cute didn't it......Here's the base template I created.....If you would like this template just click the image and it will take you to the page on my website where you can download the svg file.
 
I also offer these templates in the DXF, GSD, WPC & AI formats, however there is a charge for these formats due to the time involved in converting them.  I so appreciate you understanding this.....
IF you're interested in this Tutorial you may check out my website.  I also created 2 other tutorials you can see the list of them below.....


I created the Font Manipulation tutorial so you can see that you can literally use any font you like with your cricut...you just have to tweek it a bit.....

When you get to the tutorial page scroll to the very bottom as that is where they are listed......I hope you will find them helpful and informative.........

As always, I want to THANK YOU for stopping by and visiting with me this morning!!!!  I appreciate it more than you know and love hearing from you.....I do hope you will come by again......I pray you all have a very blessed day...until next time!!
