Bird in a Tree

Wow I really have been working hard 🙂 I have another file I made of a neat bird in a tree with circles. You have to see it, I just love the retro style. This is my first attempt at making a layered file so be kind if I didn’t lay it out right 🙂 Also one more thing I cut this out big on a 12 x 12 mat but you could cut it smaller just arrange the paper differently. I just look at the SCAL mat to see where to put my paper on the mat, I can usually match it up with the numbers on the mat.

I have a few pictures below to help in cutting and putting this file together.

This is the image layout in the SVG:

This is how I layed out my paper on my mat to cut this file out:

 This is the final image of the final product all cut out and put together.

Well, I have finished my next file, it’s a pretty swirly tree. Below are 2 pictures of it, one is the tree cut out of brown card stock, then I cut the same tree out of green card stock and cut the leaves out and glued them onto the original brown tree.

I really like the way it came out, it’s sort of breezy and free spirited, but if you look at it just right it almost looks like a heart tree as well. Very versatile could be used for anything.

Give a Hoot

I have for you a nice owl SVG file that I made the other day. I originally made it when someone on a yahoo board asked for one, but then I got a terrible cold and didn’t get it posted in time. But I like it so I thought I would share it here.

Same as before if you like it comment on it and let me know you would like the file emailed to you and I will do just that :). You don’t need to leave me your email address in the comment as it is in your name on my screen.

I am on a nature roll right now so keep your eyes peeled I will be posting more files as I work on them. I have some neat ones in the works, I also have a cupid SVG I will be sharing in a bit as well, since Valentines Day is right around the corner.

Here is a picture of my owl file test cut, cut on brown card stock, sitting on white card stock.

Well this is my new craft and art blog, I had one a while back on another server but it got eaten over there and disapeared altogether. So I figured I ought to start a new one up again.

I have a Cricut Expression cutting machine, it cuts things out of paper, is primarily made for scrapbooking and card making but can be used for lot’s of other applications as well.

I also own software that I can use with it called Sure Cuts a Lot or SCAL for short, with this software I can cut anything I design in either Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape and saved as an SVG file.

So today I had a few minutes and decided to play around in AI and made a picture of some Birch trees with a little bird on them. I saved it as an SVG in Inkscape and imported it into SCAL and then cut it out of white cardstock, put it on a black background and it looks great. This is the first file I made using SCAL like this from scratch.

I am posting a picture of the file here for others to see if you like it and want the SVG file just leave me a message with your email address and I will send it to you.
