These 14″ Print then Cut Nutcrackers were soooo much fun to create. To create them I just grabbed a free image off of google images and brought the images into Silhouette Studio (for either my Cricut Explore Air or my Cameo).
The most fun part was embellishing them!! I can’t wait to use these as part of my decorations this Christmas!!

I have got a terrific new site to share with you! When you use this site, you can create patterns for your Cricut machine (Design Space) or your Silhouette Cameo machine (Silhouette Studio) or your ScanNCut machine (Canvas)!!!
These patterns are terrific for print then cut cardstock OR print then cut heat transfer materials for t-shirts, bags, etc!
Here is the link to the site AND below you will find a short video on how to use the site for Silhouette machines and Cricut machines!
I’m sooo excited!!! Tomorrow we are going to go over a ton of really really fun techniques in our Patreon class!!
We will turn one Santa boot image into an svg and THEN change it into lots of other FUN Santa images!!
Don’t know how to create your OWN svgs??? Join us tomorrow and EVERY single SATURDAY to learn how to MASTER your die cutting machine (Cricut, ScanNCut, Silhouette Cameo).
THE BEST thing about our classes is that they are only $2.50 each – you CAN’T BEAT that price. You will LOVE all you can do with ANY Machine by just purchasing Silhouette Software for Cricut or Silhouette or ScanNCut!!! This is going to be really really fun!! I PROMISE!! www.patreon.com/pattyanne
I LOVE it when I can create beautiful cards for my Cricut and Cameo machines without having to purchase special stamps or images. This card was made with FREE dingbats (ok for commercial use) and free font from dafont.com (I have all the details in the info under the video.)
I hope you enjoy this video and it spurs you on to create your own beautiful cards!!
I am going to show how to make these images into svgs on YouTube LIVE today. Not sure of the time so please make sure you aresubscribed to my channel AND CLICK the BELL so that you get alerted!
I will be using Silhouette Studio and creating these svgs for ANY machine….much like you can do in Inkscape but it is much easier to use Silhouette Studio (IMHO).
Below are the images we will be working on. What’s that? You say you don’t want to create these images??? Not to worry….what you learn in THIS class can be used on ANY image that you’d like (think DISNEY!)
So, please grab these images. Simply right click on the image and save to your computer so that you can work right along with me!!!
Yahoooooo, my Foil Quill arrived this morning and I am really excited to get going with it. Since a lot of you asked, I wanted to give you a bit of info that I’ve gotten from my research.
Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post where I do the LIVE unboxing!!!
The following materials can have foil applied to them easily:
card stock non textured
card stock textured
thin fun foam
I also found that the following types of foil work well with the Foil Quill
Anyhooo, I’m pretty excited to get mine. Grab yours here!! As I mentioned in the video, I got the smaller ‘set’ so that I could try it out and make sure that I liked how it worked. If you’d like to take a look at the larger set, click HERE.
I will be testing mine later today and documenting my results with video so stay tuned.
BTW, I’ve ordered my Cameo 4….. are you getting one?? Check it out by clicking on the image below!!
This box is soooo cute and easy to create! To get the free file, just go to the library up in the menu area.
If you’re using a Cameo, this file can be used as is. I hope that you’ll share what you create on our website!!!
If, on the other hand you use a Cricut, be sure to watch the video as I show how to use this free svg no matter if you’re using the Maker or an Explore Air (with the Score tool).
I was LIVE-ish today! Yep, I said -ish because I was live but didn’t know it. lol
Anyway, in the class I demo how to create your OWN Embossing Folders for Cuttlebug or whatever embossing machine you might have.
It is a LOT of fun to do and all you need is the backing to any papers that you have… you know… I mean that cardboard that is a little thicker than paper. OR, BETTER yet…. if you eat cereal, why not use a cereal box!!??
