Here is a card I made using the cut file I designed not having the Hello Kitty Cartridge, made using GBS. To get the outline I used a thick black marker pen, drawing around the edges of the paper.

Hello Kitty .cut file

I have designed this file in CDS using GBS for a colleague who is returning to school, mad about 'Hello Kitty', sadly I don't have this cart so I designed this using the Hello Kitty cart as my guide.


Cut out all the peices, please note in the cut file you will notice that there are two pages named dress 1 and dress 2, you will need to cut out dress 1 first then press load paper so it continues to remain within your cricut and then cut dress 2, this will cut out the flower and arm shapes from the dress. The design is a layered technique.

Easel card .cut file

I saw a glimpse of an easel card on a UK craft channel and which I liked the look off, so much so I design my own cut file, a different kind of card to send to say a budding artist or in general!

Designed using GBS cart, you will need to crease above the inner legs of the easel from where the outer legs begin, which will allow this card to free stand. The small strip of card is to place your message on and should be adhered to the card using 3D foam, this strip will also be a shelf for the card to sit upon (or you simply glue the picture on!). Hope you like it!

Calling all fellow crafters

Please help me to lift the spirits of a young girl of 7 call Annelous who is critically ill, her father a doctor to whom I work with gives so much to others and expects nothing in return.

I want to show him the loving response from my fellow crafters worldwide who unite to show support with there acts of kindness through the creations they send, if you would like to help me to encourage this little girl in getting better please email me at and I have my fingers crossed and will look forward to sending the delivery address on to you.

Thank you all in anticipation.


Update, I spoke with the Dr today and asked after Annelous, he told me that her condition was organic therefore terminal and they have been told her seventh birthday will be her last, I'd like to thank those of you who have sent cards, I have received a few already and shall ensure these are passed on to her.

Please keep this little girls spirits raised and with each card she opens gives her the drive to continue, she has begun talking about death more openly with her family which is becoming more emotionally stressful for the them as her condition deteriorates.

Thank you
