Happy KSS Monday!
It may have seemed very quite over here at KSS … which means …
NEW STAMPS are coming!
Yes, 5 new stamp sets will be available Mid October! I can hardly wait to share more details which will be very soon.
Another thing that has kept me busy, I finally broke down and purchased a Silhouette cutting machine. I have to say – I wish I had done it SOONER! Cutting masks directly out of masking paper or card stock cut-outs for stamped images can be done in a flash! Plus, much more accurate than when I would try cutting out by hand! (got to love that!)
Now, I am not pushing or enabling anyone to go out and purchase this machine – I have no tries with Silhouette. BUT, if you have one already, I am thrilled to be able to now offer our KSS customers a
FREE Bonus – KSS die cut files for our Multi Step stamp sets.
[Update: I have had to put a small price for digital die cut files, but if you have purchased the coordinating stamps, the die cut files will still be free. Find out all the info HERE.]
I am still figuring out all the details regarding files (.svg -vs .dxf). I understand that the standard Free software that comes with the Silhouette (Portrait or Cameo), can’t open .studio files or .svg files without having to convert them to .dxf files. So until I figure out an easier way to upload options that both standard and DE software users can download…. for now, email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have some other type of computer/software cutting machine that supports .svg files, please let me know. I would love to test out a file with you and see if it will work for your machine too.
Let me know what version of Silhouette software you are using and the stamp set name for die-cut files wanted. I will email you the files directly.
Here is a sliding gift card holder I created using my Silhouette and one of their many, many awesome templates. The really exciting part for me was to die cut the truck and present so they could pop off the front. Also being able to add a die cut layer under the banner (blue) and not having to cut it by hand was totally cool!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful and inky week!
