...My Heart Cut files Now available

Morning folks, it's been a while since I have blogged and I wish I could say that my time was filled with busy happy Christmas bustle, but like half the population we got flu.....

Anywhoo, I'm limbering up to get back up on the old saddle and get started with 2013... Just today I am making some cut files available for the My Heart set - this is our Love themed set that we released just before Christmas. I love using it with the Woodgrain....oh bliss...I white embossed the woodgrain backgrounder onto white card and then swiped over with tumbled glass distress ink to get the card base.

Both of these sets are currently available form our USA base, and if you have not heard about our USA shipping, we are tentatively making some sets available to ship within USA which means that USA folks will not have to wait just as long to get their hands on the new goodies...we've been really encouraged so far and hope to roll out availability on all sets over time.

The thing to remember is to be sure to select the USA shipping from the drop down menu when ordering, and to make sure all your goodies have that option selected. Our USA shipper is currently at CHA and so USA shipping will resume Jan 15th.

I have a collection of 10 cut files in the My Heart set and they will enable you to eke out unlimited usage for your My Heart sets. Perfect for Valentines and beyond, I'm itching to use that laurel wreath in particular on some wedding cards...I just need somebody to get married....

The cut files are available in both .svg and .dxf files and there is even a handy file which includes all the shapes set up together so you can cut a whole batch in one go. There is a small charge for this set of cut files, but I do intend to keep making random free files available. I can't do them all free as I have to spend the time setting them up and I also have to pay to have them hosted etc, but the more cut files I sell, the more I will be able to offer for free...if that makes sense...LOL!

You can see all the shapes included in this set here.

One of the things I am oving about my Silhouette Cameo is the ability to use their super simple software to produce mats for my cut files, this is something I love to so. you can see on the close up here how I made mats in Kraft cardstock for my cut files. It's a super simple way to add definition and dimension to the cut out shapes.

The Software has a little tool, it's called 'Offset selected shape' and you can toggle it up or down to get the size of frame you want, it's great fun!

Anyhow, hope this tickles!


  1. These are a wonderful idea Claire, I love your pretty card with the fun washi tape, and I love your various little samples of those sweet hearts in different shades.
