Freebie Wednesday April 22nd

Happy Hump Day everyone! Last weeks "freebie" wednesday was so much fun! I received so many nice comments and emails. The freebie last week was downloaded just over 200times! So I hope that you all enjoyed the cut last week.

This week I wanted to share a design using design studio...but after creating this cut file, I decided to create one for all of you that use SCAL as well. So there is something for everyone today :)

Ok so have you all seen the newest fiskars punch? It cuts a scalloped shape that is almost like an oval with a oval hole in the middle. This punch is oh so impossible to get your hands on (just like the threading water punch was) so I decided to create a card that has this "punched" edge on it.

First here's the card I created using this cut file, so you can see visually what I am trying to explain ;):



As you can see, the edge appears like I have used a boarder punch on it...but the cricut will cut it all out for you...perfect alignment everytime...awh don't you just love your bug!

So here's the freebie for this cut: (here to download)



This cut file is designed using only the plantin schoolbook cartridge. I decided to do this because you will find a lot of cut files using George so I wanted to do a cut file using the basic cartridge that comes with your expression machine.

Just as a note, I used the inside of the letter "D" for the inside of the scallops. When you open this cut file in design studio you will have to click on each of the "d's" and with your mouse right click and then hide the outside edge of each "d". I know this is a pain, but we have to work around some things when using design studio. If you do not know how to do this, shoot me a email or refer to the cricut message board.

Now on to the SCAL cut files (click here to download)



Ok, so for those of you that have SCAL here are 2 scallop cards that I created in photoshop cs3 and then converted to cut files. Since my file was so large last week (and some of you had trouble opening it on your computer), this week I did not save these files in a large format.

So you will have to import them into SCAL and then size it using your shape properties (very simple to do). The size this is created for is 8.5 wide and 5.5 high. This will cut you a standard card.

Happy Creating everyone...and remember if you download these files, leave me a comment!

I love the scallops! Is it easy to convert to a 12x12 size? I mostly scrapbook in 12" size. I'm so new to using both design studio and SCAL that I'm still learning the basics. Thanks for all your hard work.
