Dragon Tin

I made this using the "Dreams come true" cricut cartridge, and I used to make the dragon bigger (for the little cricut) and flip it.
Also this is my First time i have used two cartridges in the one cut (the wording)
I altered a empty tin which once had chocolate wafers in it .

BIG CUTS

With my cricut designstudio, i managed to cut on the original cricut(small one) things bigger than the 6" that it would normally cut.
I cut this dragon at 7 3/4" tall and it's much easy to piece together (the original 6" are so tiny to piece together).

To do this on the design studio i had to set the default on 7 3/4" , paste and then rotate and move to fit on the mat (not changing any shape or size after pasting only fitting it on the mat). I then did another mat the same default size for each of the other colours needed for him

sure save going out and buying a bigger machine

ROBOTs patterns now fixed

Hi, I have just uploaded new versions of my robot pattern . I believe both USA and AU users can read it now. It appears that the Design Studio has an issue with the different date formats causing it to crash. These new files on my previous link
) have the date set to 12/12/2007 so it reads ok regardless of the locale setting. If you have a copy that crashes try downloading this new version (same links).

ROBOT Cricut PATTERN

Hi all had requests for my pattern for the robot

Three Robots (design studio cricut)

The way i designed my robot on the cricut was that all the coloured body pieces are all on the one mat. So to save paper it is better to make three robots at once (if you want your robots three colours ) and here is what i have made soo far

Made using George cricut cartridge and design studio .
each robot is 6" tall

ROBOT (cricut design studio)

This is my first play with the cricut design studio
The robot is 6 inches and done only with george cartridge (now cant wait to play with putting diferent cartridges in the one design )

Tubby the robot star decoration

I have made another decoration . I cut the stars out at 2.5 inches again love making it this size, but the only trouble i have is putting the last star on (there must be a knack to it ) This star was made from a greeting picture i got from tubby the robot this morning (tubby the robot is the robot i am standing next to in my picture on the right of this blog and a movie i put on the blog earlier in the year).



This weeks webivison on craft TV weekly was a star decoration (i printed my stars at 2.5 inches and Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero printed hers at 6")
I love the kaliedosope collection program soo much .
