Happy New Year!
I can't believe its now 2017! Where did the time go? Honestly, I never thought I'd live to see the new millennial when I was a kid. Here we are starting the 17th year of it!
I hope its a great one for each and every one of us!
I got SCAL V2 and Silhouette Design Studio software for Christmas from hubby. I guess he really does listen to when I talk/complain, even though he keeps telling me to stop make my cut files to share and sell.
I'm really excited to be able to add those to the versions to both my free and for sale cut files. I will be slowly updating my files in Etsy first, then my previous and still free ones. I have had requests for PNG, so I am adding those too. Its still a screen shot of the cut file, just saved in PNG format. Sorry, I still don't know how to make it the 300 DPI. I don't have any fancy photo software, I still use Picasa, even though its discontinued I just love it and does what I need. I still don't know how to make DXF or WPI(?) I'm not sure what or how people do stuff with Photoshop or Corel Draw.
Anyways, here are some of my New Etsy Shop Cut Files!
I will be adding more too!
As always, with my Borders, you get multiple "sizes" for versatility, which can still be "resized" from the 12" Length. Most people only offer one size, on occasion two "sizes". My borders come with a minimum of 5 "sizes", average is 7 "sizes" and sometimes more. Why? Because I know there are times when doing a card or especially, a layout, I wish the borders were a different Size to fit the layout. Sometimes i want a bolder border but still at the same length and other times i want a smaller border but still at the same length. Which is why I LOVE making my own cut files because I can make what i need/want.
I try to keep my cut files as affordable as I can. I have to take into account my expenses, listing fees, final sale fees, paypal/credit card fees. I know many say I'm expensive, which I don't understand because most people sell just one file for the price of my bundles. Most times, I bundle 2 or 3 or 4 at the price of what many charge for just one or 2 files. If anything I'm cheaper if not at the same competitive prices. I have NO control over sales tax, no matter where you sell, you have to charge taxes because otherwise you have to pay them for the buyer, which then becomes an expense. Since, many states or countries taxes are different its hard to keep track of. I wish I didn't have to charge taxes but thats just part of life. Plus, I offer ALOT of Free Cut Files!
I'm still just a little guy (well gal), that understands the cost of scrapbooking.
I sell to help put a dent in my medical bills that are never ending, for my ulnar nerve (aka your funny bone, which is not a bone nor is it funny) damage in my right arm and the damage to my back from the stimulator that moved and the surgeon didn't fix it properly the first time. Even though I paid years without a choice into disability insurance, I've been denied for 8 yrs.
Until Next Time...
