Guess Whoooo? It’s A New Owl Gift Bag

With owl’s being so popular right now I couldn’t resist creating a cute little Owl Gift Bag. This gift bag stands on its own and can be filled with treats or other special items. It can also collapse to lay flat so you can easily store it for future use.

GSD File Format for Digital Craft Cutters

**Note: If you do not have a GSD compatible craft cutter, all my templates are available in PDF format that anyone can use**

I have been receiving a lot of questions about my GSD Template Files so I thought I would post some additional information here for ya.

The GSD file format is a type of craft cutter file that is commonly used in digital craft cutters like Quickutz Silhouette, Xyron Wishblade and Graphtec Craft Robo.  There are also other craft cutting machines that are compatible with GSD files, but be sure to verify this first.

Below are links to two common GSD “friendly” craft cutter machines if you would like more information.

Occasionally I am asked if GSD files will work with a Pazzles Inspiration Craft Cutter.  The quick answer is no.  This machine uses a WPC craft cutter file type instead of GSD.  There are many people who convert GSD files into the WPC file format for use in Pazzles cutting machines, but I don’t have any direct experience with this to offer you.

If you have a GSD compatible craft cutter machine, then you will love my GSD templates.  You simply load up the GSD template file in your craft cutter software, select your cardstock and let the machine make the perfect cut!

If you are still wondering if a GSD file will work with your craft cutting machine or if you just want to be sure before purchasing my GSD template files, then I have exactly what you need.  In my “Freebies” section I have provided you a Top Note Shape template in GSD format.  It’s free to download so give it a try.

I hope you enjoy my GSD templates…more will be coming soon!

Hearts and Candy for Valentine’s Day

It’s a new year and that must mean that Valentine’s Day is coming soon. Time for me to use one of my favorite templates for the loved ones on my list. It’s a cute little heart shaped gift box. It can be filled with small candies or even a set of heart shaped gift cards.

Heart Shaped Gift Box Assembly

Once you have the template cut, it is easy to assemble and has a great little heart latch in the front to keep it closed.

2009 Calendar Crafts – Happy New Year!

Wow, it’s really 2009 already!  How the years fly by…hard to believe it’s been almost a decade since Y2K.  This time of year is when I make a renewed attempt to get organized and one of my favorite crafts to help me get started is the Circle Calendar.

It can be easily decorated any way you want and the wheel turns so you can view any month of the year…
