Welcome to another Fantabulous Friday! I am the Girl Friday at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. Please be sure to hop over there and check out my complete Friday post: HERE.
Today I am changing gears just a bit. For the last two weeks I have been focusing on a particular cartridge. But today, I am going to post on a particular “image” or cut. I was working on a project with a Fall-Halloween theme. I was looking for a Crow.
So, I went to my Gypsy to do a search of what cuts were available. So here is what I came up with.
Here is a cut from October 31st Cartridge
Here is a cut from the Cupcake Wrappers Cartridge
While both of these are fine, neither was what I was looking for…so the hunt was on! I began doing a search on the net. I was looking for an SVG file that I could use to cut with my Cricut. For those of you that are unfamiliar with what an SVG is: it is a file format that allows you to use your Cricut along with a third party software to cut the file-die cut. I found a couple of freebies.
This project which features a FREE set from Deena Rutter has a couple of crows in it.
You can go to the FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE BLOG to get the download for this set. While this was also really nice, it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for.
Here is a project she made using them. This was her challenge project for this week. Be sure to take a look at the rest of the wonderful designs and join the challenge: You Can go HERE for the challenge.
I then decided to work on making some up: I made this cutting file set: I called it the Crow Trio. You can get details and purchase it at PaperCraftingWorld.com
And then I made this cutting file set, I called this one Crows, Silly Crows. You can purchase this set at Page-Kits.com as well: CLICK HERE
Then I made this set: This one I called, Cream of the Crop-Crows. This one isn’t available for sale….yet. But hopefully it will be processed in the next few days. You can check out the link for it though: HERE
So while on my Crow making frenzy, I made this little crow using my Cricut and some of the Cricut cuts (sorry, I don’t have a pattern for him…yet).
I did make this kit with some of the Cream of the Crop Crows. It is available in limited quantity at Page-Kits.com: HERE
Last but not least, I made this quick and cute little crow.
You can download the FREE cutting file HERE.
Available formats: AI, DXF, GSD, KNK, MTC, SVG, SCUT(scal 2.0) and WPC. It’s Available FREE only through Sunday evening, October 24th, ‘10
Well, I guess that’s it for today.
