Summer Words Pack

I got a Wacom Pro Tablet and have been playing around and even though is winter in Chile, here are 5 words everybody could  use for summer scrapbook layouts.
Every word comes with a shadow (like cricut images).
Since this is my handwriting, requests are welcome.

SVG Viewer Extension for Windows Explorer

This is a great tool, an SVG extension for windows explorer. It makes it really easy to organize, rename and open files, specially if you are an SVG horder like myself.

You can download it at Codeplex SVG extension.

I'm sure there's one out there for mac.

Ball end Font

I could not come up with a better name for it, but here it is.

Zipper Card

This is actually a request from Debbie from one the Cricut's forums. My first request!!
I'm so excited! I did not know what a zipper card was before this, so I hope it cuts well. I have not made it yet so I'll be glad if you can share some pictures of your creations.
Happy cutting!

Written Background

I love how light colors look on dark paper but the wide tip of the Cricut's metallic pens doesn't give a lot of fine detail.
After trying a lot, I came up with a way to use my white and metallic gel pens on the explore. It is a very homemade fix, but I bet soon enough somebody is going to make an adapter.
So here it is.
I used a Pilot Choose 0.7 white gel pen. This is the one I found fits all the way into the adapter that comes with your machine.

San Francisco's Pier 39 Card

Use this SVG to create a pier 39 inspired card. I actually made this one to be posted on a cricut forum, but it could be well used as a postcard on your next trip. Ink it, emboss it and distress it.
Use one of your carousel, sea lion or seagull photos from the pier to embellish it.
Have fun!

Kirigami "Feliz Cumpleaños" and "Happy Birthday" Card

I'm obsessed with cardmaking.
This is the first of a series of kirigami cards.
I'll be posting as I make them. Soon to come same one with an english sign.
I haven't made this one yet, but the software allows to render a picture of the finished work.
Just remember blue lines are mountains, red lines are valleys

Baby Shower invitations

This was for my cousin's baby shower. I recently received my Cuttlebug and a bunch of folders that I wanted to try.
