Doin' some blog housekeeping. You guys might remember this mustache card. I made a print & cut file in case anyone else wants to make a quick (and unforgivably punny) masculine card. Here's the inside...

The cut file is linked in this blog post. It's intended to fit an A2 sized card (4.25" x 5.5").
The triangle lining the envelope is also linked there for free should it tickle your fancy.

P.S. I'm looking for file-sharing technical advice...

Would you like this in another format, perhaps?

I would love to know the most efficient method to share .studio print & cut files with those of you who use Brother Scan n cut, Cricut etc. as other file types. I'm not sure which is the best If anyone has any advice on how to do that I'd be delighted to know how to share those different formats with you all.

Hope your week is off to a delightful start,

.....Finally! my free ornate flower cut file is back!

  Free ornate flower cut files and templates - from mel stampz

Some good news to those of you who might want to use my 6-petal ornate flower cut file. I finally managed to retrieve the files! (Tragically I had lost my Silhouette library with the upgrade & lost all of my schtuff with a PC crash.) Now much of it is back, however, and here are the files in case you'd like them. Enjoy!

The white flowers have a soft flocked texture because they're made with cardstock that I covered with Golden's Light Molding Paste and then texturized with a wooden Batik block. The black flower is made from Core-dinations cardstock.

Making friends with colour again! (Zig brush pens)

Hello All! So, the creative muse was being a tad elusive. I figured why not try to make friends with colour again, and I might have gotten some of these bad boys to that end:

Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens set

They are so much fun, but with so many shades to choose from...

I wasn't sure where to start, so I spent some time getting comfy with 'em:

 (in other words, spent days making colour swatches and plastic pocket thingies with the fuse tool...)

and cutting out little name tags for my new friends (all 80 of them!):

Ever find yourself wondering at which point crafty organization becomes creative procrastination? ;)

Happy creating!
