Key Tag svg file

For a tutorial on how to fuse plastic bags, head on over to Etsy and watch the video . It's super easy and who doesn't have hundreds of plastic bags lying around, right? I ran them through my Cricut to see if it would cut it and it cut great! I can't remember what settings but I almost always start with blade 3, pressure medium to start and adjust from there. If I remember correctly, I kept it at 3/3 but you might need to play. My hubby needed some key tags to mark keys for the storage box so I grabbed my new fused plastic and cut them out of there. A regular pen will smudge but a Sharpie wrote on them great. The plastic is thin and flexible but very strong. This file is for personal use only.

Orchid SVG File

I had a request for an orchid die cut and it was hard to find a good view to get a decent silhouette and bloom. I created this and wanted to share. It would be good for spring or Easter pages. They aren't to scale when you import them into SCAL. Open the whole flower and size. Open the bloom and size over top of the whole flower then delete the whole flower svg. Maybe one of these days I'll learn how to make them to size lol Feel free to use this image in your personal creations and you may use it for items for sale. You may not post the svg files on your blog or website for free or personal use. You may link to my blog. You may use the die cut in an item for sale but you may not sell the die cut themselves. Thank you for respecting the time it took me to make the file. Orchid Bloom Orchid Silhouette (This is for use with the Sure Cuts a Lot software)

Tuesday Tips - Organizing Photos

If you haven't been keeping up with organizing your photos it can be a daunting task. It might even be too overwhelming to start, but don't let that discourage you. It needs done and putting it off won't help. Don't feel like you have to do it all at one sitting or even in one month. It might be on going project for several months and that's ok as long as it gets done. Don't even think of it as work, think of it as talking a walk down memory lane. This can even be a project for you and your husband in the evenings or even while watching TV. First you need some storage boxes. These are normally $4 at Jo Ann's but you can find them at Target and other places. If you do buy at J's don't forget to use a coupon or watch for a sale. I've gotten mine as low as $2 at J's for plain ones. I used scrapbook paper to decorate them. These boxes are much less intimidating than a photo album and cheaper. If you decide to use albums, I would
