Cindy Loo Daisy

Hi Everyone. I loved how my last daisy cut file turned so much that when I saw the exclamation point on the new Cindy Loo cartridge I just had to try it out. I think I might love this even more than the original. The only problem is I don't own this cart yet, so now I need to wait until it goes on sale so I can pick it up. But if anyone gets the chance to actually cut this please let me know how it turned out. Enjoy!

P.S. I wonder how well it will layer with the other daisies. I really need to buy Cindy Loo!!

Screw Driver Cut File

I know there is a new cart coming out soon that looks like it has lots of tools and home improvement images on it but there was a request for this on the Cricut Message Board so I took the challenge and created this cut file.

Daisy Cut File

Hi everyone. This is one of my favorite cut files. I love, love, love Kristina Werner's blog,, and fell in love with the flower on this card. I decided to try to recreate it with my Cricut.

The only image I used was the exclamation point from the Base Camp Cartridge to make these. Base Camp is my all-time favorite font, I love its clean lines!

I like to cut these out of text weight paper, layer the different size flowers and curl the petals back to give them some dimension. This is a great way to use up some of those patterned papers that you may like the overall color of but aren't crazy about the pattern.

Peace Sign Cricut Cut file

Creating this peace symbol is really very basic. I used only George and Basic Shapes.

Pint Glass Cricut Cut File

This is a very simple pint glass cut file. I used only George and Basic Shapes to create it. This is more like the pint glasses I remember from the pubs in Ireland and less like a beer stein. Enjoy!

Coconut Cricut Cut File

Here is another cut file someone over at the Cricut Message Board was looking for. It's a really simple cut file and uses only George and Basic Shapes. Enjoy!

Petal Card

Hi everyone,

I was recently on the Cricut message board and one of the women there was looking for a cut file for a petal card or envelope; it can be used of either purpose. I've decided to post the link to the cut file here so others could access it if they want. Just click on the link below the image to download the cut file.

This is what the card looks like when complete:

Welding Shapes in Design Studio to Create Custom Cards

This is an example of a card the opens from the bottom.
This is an example of a card the opens from the side.

The first step is to choose and image to make into a card. Ideally you will want one that can connect in at least two spots.

Now place the image on your mat.

Next copy and paste the image so you have two images directly on top of each other that are identical in shape and size.

While the second image is still selected check off the flip option.

If you want the card to open on the side grab the arrow button on the image that slides it horizontally and move the top image over until the two are overlapping slightly in at least two spots.

If you would like to have the card open from the bottom you will need to rotate one of the images 180 degrees. You can do this by clicking the "Turn" button twice. Now grab the arrow button on the image that slides it vertically and slide it down until the heads are overlapping just slightly.

Next choose each image and select the "Weld" feature for both of them.

The last step is to cut it out on your Cricut machine of choice!
