Good morning my Fantabulous Friday Friends!!!,
Welcome to another Fantabulous Friday! Today I am changing gears just a bit. For the last two weeks we have been focusing on a particular cartridge. But today, I am going to post on a particular “image” or cut. I was working on a project with a Fall-Halloween theme. I was looking for a Crow. So of course I went to my Gypsy to do a search of what cuts were available.
So here is what I came up with.
Here is a cut from October 31st Cartridge
Here is a cut from the Cupcake Wrappers Cartridge
While both of these are fine, neither was what I was looking for…so the hunt was on! I began doing a search on the net. I was looking for an SVG file that I could use to cut with my Cricut. For those of you that are unfamiliar with what an SVG is: it is a file format that allows you to use your Cricut along with a third party software to cut the file-die cut. I found a couple of freebies.
This project which features a FREE set from Deena Rutter has a couple of crows in it.
You can go HERE to download this set. While this was also really nice, it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for.
Here is another one I found from Little Scraps of Heaven.
You can go HERE to download this.
And then one of my fellow CWC DT members designed this cute little set.
Here is a project she made using them.
You can check it out HERE.
I then decided to work on making some up: I made this cute little Crow:
You can download the FREE file HERE.
And then I made this set, I called Crows Silly Crows.
Having the flexibility of cutting files you create or purchase along with the option of using your cartridges, makes having the Cricut a FANTABULOUS option.
Last but not least, I made this little crow using my Cricut and some of the Cricut cuts (don’t have a pattern for him…yet).
Sorry my project isn’t done yet…but hopefully I will get to share it with you soon . Well, I guess that’s it for today. I hope you have a wonderfully crafty weekend and now you can make some Crowliciously, Fantabulous Projects.
