Vintage Lamp Card

Just had to quickly share this vintage-looking shaped card I made using the Lamp free cutting file I posted the  other day.  I used Bazzil cardstock for the base and paper from the Ancestry line by KB Company for the lampshade. Rather than the cut fringe, I decided to use a piece of real lace, and inked it a little bit with dark brown ink to grunge it up a bit. The finishing touch was a string of seed pearls across the top and bottom of the lampshade, and some dark brown inking along the sides of the shade.

Are you a Digital Scrapbooker?

Some of you may already know, but I've been a digital scrapbooker for many years, and have been designing digiscrapping products, teaching classes and creating instructional videos under the name Red Leaf DigiScrapping for many of those years. In fact, if you were really paying attention, you'd notice that my logo on this site is "Cre8ive Cutz by Red Leaf DigiScrapping".

Rather than trying to keep up with two sites, which hasn't been working well lately, I've decided to bring together all my crafting onto this blog.  So, for now I'm going to point you to a few things, but eventually I will get my videos and digiscrapping products moved over to this site.

So, without further ado, if you are interested in watching instructional videos teaching you how to do photo editing and digital scrapbooking using Photoshop Elements, my software of choice, have a look at myYouTube channel. Since Halloween is coming, here's a fun video that shows you how to turn your children into ghosts (but only in the digital world, not the real one!) :-)

New free cutting file - Lamp

Finally, a new freebie up on the blog! Feels like its been forever, but I finally got a new cutting file created for you, this versatile lamp. Use it on cards or scrapbook pages, or turn it into a card. The shade would look so pretty cut out of patterned paper, and the trim can easily be replaced by real lace for a vintage look. Just click on the preview image to download the files. As always, MTC, SVG and now PDF files are included in the free download.

Updated Terms of Use

In light of some recent discussions on the Make the Cut! discussion board, I have decided to change the terms of use on my files to allow commercial use. The new terms of use are as follows (and are published on the Terms of Use page as well):

All files from Cre8ive Cutz, paid and free, cannot be resold or redistributed in any way. Feel free to alter them for your own personal projects, but please do not alter the files to reshare and claim as your own, whether you are giving them away or selling them.

You may make items with Cre8ive Cutz files for sale or other commercial use including classes (including files downloaded under the former personal use agreement), as long as the digital pattern file itself is not redistributed or sold.

If items are being made for commercial use, particularly classes, acknowledgement of Cre8ive Cutz as the pattern designer is appreciated. Photos of the projects that can be published on this website are always welcome as well.

If you have any questions, please post a comment here or send me an email. Thanks.

Have you heard the news? New version of Make the Cut! is here and it's fantastic!

Whew! I'm back from an amazing vacation in Europe, and while I was away the new version of Make the Cut! was released!

I haven't had too much time to play with it yet, but from what I've seen so far, it's got some great new features, I think my favorite so far is the conical warp that lets you create cupcake wrappers and travel cup inserts with ease. This is a quick screenshot of that feature.

If you want to try out the new version, just click the Download link in the right hand column.

Once I've had a chance to get a bit more organized at home, I'll be posting some videos of the new features, and of course some freebies for you.  I've also got some great new purse cutting files in the works, so keep an eye out for those too!
