A Lazy Weekend.......

Hey Everyone......it's been a hot yucky kind of weekend......but I did play a bit in my ARTHaven.....nothing real exciting but thought I would share with you what I did do.....a couple of files to share for a short time as well.... ;)

I needed to make a card for a swap in my ARTHaven group.....and the theme was Lighthouses........I wanted to of course use my Black Cat..."Raven"........I had a little program that Make The Cut shared some time back....for making puzzles.......I bet alot of you might remember that.....well it's something I've not used alot of but thought it might be fun to play with it......especially now that we have the Print & Cut Technique with SCAL3.......It does such an amazing job with my "kitty"........so here's what I made....

My PNC settings were off a wee bit when I credited this......I didn't feel like tweeking it at the time...but I've since done that now and it is absolutely spot on now!!!  SCAL3 is a WONDERFUL program!!!!
 
The next time I do this technique I will be using some of the Chipboard from Tyler at All That Jazz Supplies Inc.....he has THE BEST Chipboard on the market hands down.....it cuts BEAUTIFUL with the cutters!!!! 
 
Envision this.....printing your design off......using some of Tyler's double sided adhesive sheets......that he sales at his store...All That Jazz Supplies Inc......then adhere the other side to chipboard.......adhere to the mat and cutting with your cutter........then you would have a puzzle that would hold up over time......you could put on a card or use as a quick fun gift......with a special message.....LOL....
 
Ok.....Then I decided to create a few new files to share for a period of time as well........an online friend of mine, Retta at Royal Inspirations... created a file she made of this thought design for a group we both belong to...and it was cute....but I had also already done up one of these and decided to tweek my files in my version and show a few ways in which I envision using it.......and thought I would share that with you here..

In this file I tried to create "stamps" with a couple different ideas in mind.....a sheet of all the same stamp......a solid design stamp sheet, a sheet of an image blocked out......or you can do a different design in each "stamp".........I tried to think of every way someone "might" want to use it........
 
You notice the edges "seem" a bit ragged....but they're really not....once you fold along the "seams" you'll see the little pieces fall out and you're left with your "perforation"....you can use the sheet all together or tear apart.....however you want to use them......You could even print digis on them and then color however you wish...the possibilities are really endless.....
 
IF you decide this is a file you might like....please grab it now as it will only be available for download for about a week before I add to my collection for my next DVD...but one thing I want you to keep in mind when doing the print and cut technique.....(at least in SCAL3 anyway...) as I don't use MTC any longer...so I'm speaking only for SCAL3......but remember to leave the eye on the "stamp cut" design open...but turn the line color OFF so it doesn't "print" when you print off your image through the Print & Cut window.....but it needs to be that way so the alignment will come out correctly....I hope that makes sense......??????
 
Okie Dokie....then the last design I thought I would share with you is one I created about a month or so back.....I shared the tickets with you but not the file I created....but I thought since I was sharing the others above...I would share this one for a period of time.......so if you're interested grab it now
