Bling, Bling....Sharing Some Rhinestone Designs

Hi everyone, I hope all of you have been enjoying the Summer days and nights. In the evening I have really enjoyed sitting outside on our screened in porch watching the lovely firefly display. We have so many fireflies flying through the night air. It's quite a lovely light show.

I've been burning some midnight oil trying to do all of the things I like to do and some things I don't like to do.... lol. I've made several HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl) glitter and regular vinyl, T-shirts and then began working with rhinestones again. Because I've been taking some time out to enjoy some creative projects I hope all of you can too. I know Summers are filled with so many activities our crafting usually takes a back seat.

Many of us are animal lovers and I wanted to make sure I covered all of the cat lovers and dog lovers. Our home has two sweet dogs and one adorable cat. We sure do love our fur babies, even though they can be a little naughty from time to time. Our cat loves everyone and everything, but our littlest and eldest dog just loves me and sort of puts up with the rest of the family. He doesn't bite, but he sure gives out some warnings to anyone who tries to go near me. Both dogs are rescue dogs. Our old boy was really ill when we brought him home so I had to pretty much be his mommy replacement so he turned into a protective little fellow.

Today, I'm sharing some rhinestone cutting files. I had to make two separate designs to pull this off. The .svg file looks a little different than the Studio files I created. Below are the pictures of the files. The download includes.svg, Studio V2, and Studio V3 cutting files. It's been a while since I've had the time to design some files and able to get here to share and I love to share. I hope all of you using these files will enjoy creating some bling creations. I would love to see what you do with this file so please feel free to email me pictures and I'll make sure to share them here.

You can download the files shown below here ----> I Love My Dog and Cat Rhinestone Cutting Files

Studio V3 DE - How To Convert Coloring Pages to Cutting Files

Welcome everyone! Today I wanted to share a video tutorial on using coloring pages and converting them into cutting files by using the free, easy to use, internet tool to convert them so you can bring them into your Studio DE software to color them and make them into some nice cutting files. Some time ago Kay from her Cleversomeday Blog (that brilliant woman) shared as she always does a wonderful internet tool; Rapid Resizer. Even though I quite often use CorelDraw I still love this free internet tool. For one thing, it's free for all and easy to use.

In the video I made for everyone; I'll walk you through the steps of using RapidResizer and then show you what to do after you've converted the file in the Studio Designer Editon software. I've made lots of these fun to make cutting files and now my grandchildren want to help me color them in the Studio program. Well, they also want me to print them I hope this video will bring you more crafty and creative fun.


Here are just a few images I converted this past weekend.

More About Color Fill, Gradient, and Pattern Fill

Good day everyone! I've been sent some emails and comments asking about the advance features of the color, gradient, and pattern fill tools. I had made videos in the past, but thought I would make a new one and update it a little bit. In this video tutorial I show more about the advanced features, but I also show others how to use the free internet tool Color Scheme Designer 3. This is a wonderful tool which can be used in so many ways. One of the things I left out in my video is how you can export pallets and import them into Photoshop. All you need to do this is to select the color wheel you would like to save, go up to "export", and select ACO Photoshop Palette.Once you've done this all you have to do is import your new palette right into your Photoshop software program.

I hope this video will help you to enjoy the many design options, you can make using the Color Scheme Designer and your Studio software.

Here is the link to this fun and free internet tool: Color Scheme Designer 3

A Special Note to Lyn W. From Australia : Hi Lyn, I hope you see this post. Lyn, I tried to send you an email and it came back as undeliverable. I'm not sure why this happened, I used the email address you provided but it came back. This also happened one other time with a nice lady named Stephanie. I would like to send you something as my way of saying thank you. If you can provide me with a different email address I would love to send you some cutting files.

Here are a couple of quick designs I made using Studio and Color Scheme Designer:
