Free Friday #4 and a "fix"



Let me start off by saying I made a little boo boo. I have been using SCAL for months with no problems. I just jumped on the Make the Cut scene. When I save my files out of Illustrator, they automatically include a "crop mark" area. SCAL ignores the crop mark line, so I never realized there was an issue. MTC thinks my crop marks are in the way and turns them into a funny little box with circles. I didn't know this! Thanks to blog reader Connie for helping find my mistake. I now know how to avoid this little problem - future files will not have this funny little box. If you do open a SVG in MTC and get the box, you can ungroup the shape and simply delete the box and circles.

I did go back and fix my files. You will have to download them again if you want to avoid the funny box. If you have a Silhouette or use SCAL you can ignore everything I just said. :)

Now that we have that business out of the way...
Here is your free file for Friday. We just finished wrestling season and now the boys will be starting soccer in a few weeks. Here is a soccer ball file I created to use on pages and for making into car decal out of vinyl.

Download Soccer Ball GSD

Don't forget to watch HSN on Saturday from 6-7am or 5-6pm for the new Straight from the Nest Cricut Cartridge and other 3Birds products!

Hope everyone has a great weekend. See you back here on Monday. I will have new Mosh Posh March pages to share and a little bonus SVG/GSD download for those who are fans of the Jenni Bowlin Banner Stickers.

borderlines, you just keep on pushing my love, over the borderlines!!!
LOL, saw them at 2peas and had to come over and ask, i think svg is using that cricut software right? :( :( :( why can't you just design for provocraft and come out with a borderlines cartridge? It'll make my life simpler!! I can just get that! LOL.
keep pushing me, keep pushing me... now that song is stuck in my head...

Is there a tutorial on how to use the files for Silhouette? I downloaded the borderline one but now how do I get it to my Silhouette program (robomaster)? I'm still learning my Sil! Thanks so much!
