New Job Today!

I've been working as a part time employee for JoAnn Fabric since last October, and today I will be my first day at a new store as a manager. I am so nervous and excited all at the same time. Wish me luck, I know this job won't be easy, but I hope it will be worth it!

My First SVG Set

I've been searching and searching the internet for SVG files to use with my new SCAL program, and had a lot of trouble finding things that I thought I would use. So...I decided to be brave, and create my own. I've been dropping hints for a graphics tablet for my birthday next month :) For now, I just used my Macbook Pro and Illustrator to make some super cute wild life animals. I think they turned out great, but I need someone to try them out for me.

The first 10 people to email me at courtneyzavala(at)gmail(dot)com will get this set emailed to them for FREE!

The set will work with SCAL, MTC and any other 3rd party program you use that can import SVG files.

I really want to see what you can do with these cute little guys (and I hope to goodness that they work correctly!)

Oh the Possibilities!

I am the proud new owner of an amazing program that I'm sure many of you have heard of

As their website states, Sure Cuts A Lot (or SCAL)is an extremely easy program to allow you to cut your True Type fonts and various shapes on your Cricut Machine and other cutting machines. With the combination of using your Fonts. importing custom artwork and drawing your own shapes, the possibilities are endless! 

I'm looking forward to posting projects using my new program! I have a party coming up, so I'm planning on making some decorations.

If you're interested in expanding your crafting horizons, check out the Sure Cuts A Lot software

Also, check out Lettering Delights for some awesome graphics to use with SCAL or MTC.
