Gobble Gobble!!

I used Attitudes paper for the sayings and then glued it to the cut & inked signs.
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!

Happy Crafting!

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:

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!

New from CHA Scrapbooking Attitude ~ Paper Film

I now have these in my store let me know if you want some :)

What is Scrapbooking Attitude™?     Scrapbooking Attitude™ is neither a paper nor a T-shirt transfer material. Scrapbooking Attitude™ is a new, patented technology that allows your printed ink jet image to be separated from the original paper carrier and transported to a separate surface to become part of that new surface.
What is it made from?     Scrapbooking Attitude™ is a high quality ink jet coating much like the coating you might find on professional digital photographic paper. The difference is that now you can actually 'remove' the coating [post printing] and transport that coating and image to a new surface.
What can I do with it?     You can use your inkjet printer to print images, photos, drawings, titles and journaling, right onto the Scrapbooking Attitude™. Once printed, you can then, transport that image and glue or heat laminate the Scrapbooking Attitude™ to almost any surface. The surface's color, print and texture will show through the Scrapbooking Attitude™ to create a patterned or embossed effect, right in the image!
Is it acid free?     Yes, acid-free, PVC-free, water resistant after being applied, smear-proof and UV resistant, which means that it won't fade under lighting or yellow over time.
How do you apply it?     Depending upon the surface you want to decorate, you can use an adhesive (glue stick), or heat and pressure (household iron or desktop laminator).
Is it permanent?     Yes, if you want it to be, by using glue.     No, if you want to be able to remove it, use an iron or laminator.
To what types of surfaces can you transport Scrapbooking Attitude™?     Paper, cardstock, chipboard, fabric, felt, ribbon, metal, plastic, leather, wood and more!
Can I use my die-cutter and punches with it?     Yes! Scissors, craft knives, die and electronic cutters and punches all work well with Scrapbooking Attitude™!
What is the most exciting thing about Scrapbooking Attitude™?     You can create your own expensive-looking canvas prints by wrapping the flexible, printed Scrapbooking Attitude™ around chipboard, canvas board and even stretched canvas.
Do I have to know a lot about computers or have special software? 
No! You just need to be able to print an image using your inkjet printer!

I have a few project in mind that this will be great on so I stocked up at CHA and have these on hand now in my store.  Retail $19.99 per package (6 sheets, 8.5 x 11 - in a package)
