DOLLS!! Free Digi Stamp!

I love using FREE images to create really fun embellishments for my cards!  This one is soooo cute that I wish I had made a mirror image of her and created a shaped card using her.  I bet the kids that we make cards for (our charity that our Facebook Group loves to give to) would be thrilled to get these cards!

Anyway…..here they are. The link to the free digi stamp is below the video.

HELP! Silhouette Software with my CRICUT

Are you tired of purchasing svg files and want to create your own?

Betsy, from our Patreon group, had written the following to me:

Dear Patty Anne,

  I don’t know what I am doing wrong?? I am trying to make an SVG of this logo, but have had lots of trouble. Once I finally thought I had gotten it (for the most part), betsy baseballwhen I sent it to Cricut, the are a bazillion pieces to the project. Obviously, I have not done things right! I am sending the original jpg file and then a link to my file I made……. don’t know if you can make any sense of it… I guess I just need help in step by step of how to do it… I really thought this would be easy…… NOT.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (when you MIGHT have time….. it is not urgent by any means. I would really just like to know the steps so I can do it… that’s the frustrating part… I thought this one would be easy….. sheesh.
Thank you so much for all you do and the amazing classes you offer,,,, you are wonderful!
First, thanks sooo much Betsy for the kind words!!  I hope that this video will help answer the questions you had about taking the image you created from Silhouette Software to you Cricut Machine.
By the way, you can try out the software for free HERE.
You will need to purchase the Business Edition for CRICUT.

  • Have you ever wanted to try some new vinyls, heat transfer vinyls, faux leather, rhinestones, and paper products but were afraid? No worries. We have you covered! (We supply all of the materials!)
  • Want to learn to create absolutely stunning cards? We will teach you AND supply EVERYTHING you need to create them! (Again, all materials provided!)
  • Want to learn how to successfully use the Easy Press as you make ‘gifts’ for yourself AND other ‘gifts’ to donate to charity?
  • Are you tired of buying svgs? Learn to create them so you will NEVER need to purchase them again. Yep, it’s true!*

We are soooo excited about this event especially since it is only $350 which includes all of the above AND FOUR CLASSES…..

……Actually we may be adding a 5th class which will be taught LIVE for us via the internet by our very much loved friend and card-maker extraordinaire who resides in the UK.

If you have any questions about the fab Retreat, please email us at TeamPattyAnne@gmail.com and either Tammy or I will be happy to answer them!

*WE WILL BE USING THE SILHOUETTE STUDIO SOFTWARE FOR THE CLASSES which is perfect if you use a Cameo at home. BUT you may ask…..what if I don’t have a Cameo and I use a Cricut Explore or a Cricut Maker? You will learn how easy it is to use the Silhouette Software WITH YOUR CRICUT AND DESIGN SPACE. It is truly game-changing – I PROMISE! You can get the software by clicking here.

We hope to see you there! Space is very limited as we want a small group so that you will have one on one help as needed! Reservations are open NOW! To reserve your space, send in the down-payment as listed in the brochure below. First Come/ First Served.

Silhouette + Cricut = LOVE

I really do believe this!  With Silhouette software I can do soooo much more with my Cricut machine (and of course with my Silhouette Cameo 4).

If you haven’t tried it yet, what is stopping you?  Seriously.  Next best thing since sliced bread???? LOL    Kinda kidding BUT I really do love the software.

Here is how you can make fabulous larger than mat images for you CRICUT.  This video shows a step I did not go over in my prior video…that of saving the cut pieces FOR CRICUT.

I was SCARED to do this project!

I really was scared to do this Jean Freda Mystery Project.

The inspiration image that JF gave me was not what I was used to getting from her. She usually sends me a photo of what she’d like me to create but THIS TIME, she sent only this!!jf wreath

Did she really think I could take these supplies and make THAT? ^^^

Well, believe it or not, I DID AND I LOVE IT!!

Here is the live video replay.

A NEW WEEKLY Challenge for Cricut and Silhouette!!

Hi Everyone!

card challengeWe are starting a new weekly challenge over on my facebook group page:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/cuttingupwithpattyanne/

I have already posted the first Challenge on the group page.  Here is the video that goes with it.  I hope that you will join us whether you use a Cricut or Cameo!!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope that everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend (if you live in the US) and didn’t eat tooooo much turkey!  Unfortunately, I either ate too much turkey and stuffing and potatoes and green beans and …. OR it was the three heaping tablespoons of homemade whipped cream on top of the banana pudding, pumpkin pie and brownie that did me in for the day LOL.

Hugs,

PattyAnne
