New Cuttable Files on Etsy

It's been a busy summer! I finally got organized enough to make a bunch of new cuttable or cutting files for digital die cutting machines for Etsy. I have a Pazzles, but Cricut and Silhouette are two other popular brands. And with third party software like Make the Cut, digi crafters aren't limited to certain file types like days of yore! It's kind of cringe-worthy to think that the original Cricut came with couldn't use your own designs back then.

Fortunately, times have changed and there are all sorts of designy people out there like me who are happy to share their designs. So far I have some frames, birds and feathers. We'll see how the collection grows.

Each cutting file package comes with a PDF, an SVG file and a WPC file for Pazzles. Even if you don't have a digital die cutter, you can use the SVG to scale the pictures to size, or you can do it the old fashioned way with a photocopier with the PDF. Sometimes I forget that you can use a cutting machine to draw too. Clip art, embroidery patterns, laser cutting, stencils...cuttable files have tons of uses :-)
