Great, no pealing, color looks good no fade to speak of although I am sure there is some.

Giving it a try for derby cars

I experimented this summer with SQ1 papers because they were fabric and I wanted something "more" than vinyl that I could print at home.

applied to a "unSmooth" car side it wrinkled some - application oops

the tin roof sundae looked lots better in person

logo worked well

extra one applied to the cooler also held up well.

how the double back easel looks from the back
Happy Crafting!
---------------------------------------

I'm here at Scrap Happy Retreat in Lodgepole Nebraska!  Making table place tags is the goal of the day. My Friend Terri Z. from Scrapbook Fun Addicts in Utah used these cute turkeys for her make-n-take at shows last year and now I have him MTC'd so I can cut them. I modified several of Terri's original pieces and added a double wingback easel so he sits nice! You can get the easel file on the MTC gallery.

ArtBin + Best Craft Organizer = organized!

 
I like Art Bin boxes, but dislike that you have to unstack them to get to the one you want. SO.....
I took the sides of 2 singles by  Best Craft Organizer and with my table saw cut new top/bottom and back pieces that were the correct size. Using the drawer rails in the predrilled holes on the sides I can easily remove any one of the artbins without bothering the one above or below.
It may not be perfect.... the lumber is not painted, I used black rails... well because I had them. But I really like the usability of the end organizer!

MTC and Cricut.....

I backed mine up!!

Those who purchased Make The Cut prior to August 17, 2012 had the option to use a plugin to cut from Make The Cut to their Cricut machines. Those that downloaded before August 17th, 2012 it was the 4.1.0 version that you downloaded, so keep it safe.

Please note that the plugin for use with the Cricut machines
will NO LONGER work with versions of Make The Cut newer than 4.1.0.

If you have MTC 4.1.0, and are cutting to a Cricut, make a copy of MTC 4.1.0 and place in a safe place in case you ever need to reinstall it.

See the video tutorial by Scrappy Dew here to learn how to save multiple copies of Make The Cut to your computer:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2f8Fbv27SQ

You will need to install any newer MTC versions to your computer in a different directory in order to retain your ability to design in the newer software and cut from the older software. When newer versions of Make The Cut come out, you can use the new version for designing. Select All, and Export your design as SVG, and import the SVG into your older version for cutting.

The new MTC version 4.1.1 was uploaded on August 18, 2012.
Info from Julie & Bryan on the MTC forum.

Happy Crafting!
