Another Free Christmas Tree SVG File

Good evening everyone..  I am bringing another Christmas Tree SVG file.  I am using Google Docs instead of my normal Box.net account.  I found someone else offering files to download and they used Google docs and it seemed so easy...  therefore, I am giving it a try.

The New Make The Cut Beta 3 Software

Oh what a dream the new Make The Cut software is!!!  Andy has answered the call for Print and Cut!!  This feature is so awesome.  You can now print your image and cut around it.  Below are instrucitons and a video I found outlining the process.

1) Open MTC and click on the Pixel Trace button and go to where your image is stored, highlight it and click open.  You may want to start with something simple, not very detailed to experiment with.

2) Set the threshold to 254. You want to make sure you get the whole out line of the graphic.

3) Check the “Set Image as Texture” checkbox and click Import.

4) Next, click on the image to select it and click on the Blackout button.

5) You also want to uncheck “outline shapes” at the bottom of the Visual Mat tab.

6) Click on File and then Print and Print the image out.

7) Click on File and Print Options..  check the option to show paper on mat.

8)  Align the printed paper just as it shows on mat on the screen and cut your image. 

Its that easy....  check out the following video..  Get your copy of MTC by clicking on the link in my sidebar

Free Christmas Card SVG

Good evening everyone.  I have not been posting as much as I should recently.  I have been over whelmed.  It started with back issues..  then busy with work and home...  plus had some crochet projects to get done..  I had the flu...  and became addicted to farmville.  But, I can proudly say that I have not touched farmville in about 2 weeks.  I have also spent some time trying to organize my fonts and svg files.  I am trying to get ready for a winter of catch up scrapping.  I also am starting my Christmas cards.  I wanted to get started earlier but just did get the chance.

Anyhow...  I was playing with the newest beta version of Make The Cut software (you can click the link on the right side bar to get a copy) and created this aperture card that spells Noel.  Hope you enjoy it.
