I love my Silhouette Cameo, and although there are rumours that they will stop accepting certain file formats or free downloaded files in the future (can anyone back up this rumour, or is it just that? I’m thinking it must’ve stemmed from something Kerri Bradford said perhaps? Although it’s only that they want people to stop selling .studio files rather than .gsd, .dxf or .svg ones), right now there are lots of opportunities to get some fab free stuff.
Personally, I prefer using free gsd files as you simply download them and then import them into your library. Then you can use them as you wish. But it’s up to you. There’s more information on how to use these files on websites and forums such as Two Peas in a Bucket and Silhouette Plus.
So I’ve been looking around at all of the designs available and there are so many! They range from basic to pretty intricate designs and I thought I’d share some of the ones I thought were pretty darned cool.
1. Bunnies and Trees window pop up card
I saw this design on Carol’s blog, and thought it was very sweet. It’s great for anyone who wants a more simplistic but still Rob Ryan inspired design, with the added bonus of it being a pop up card.
2. Pretty hibiscus design
3. Sweet Heart Square Frames
I think that these sweet heart square frames by Leza at Krewella are very versatile and could be stretched to mat a 6×4, or could be used to mat Polaroids, Instagram or similar images.
4. Sweet mushrooms
These mushrooms by Shery are super cute, don’t you think? I like the one with the floral pattern the best.
5. Chevron Trio by Daniela Dobson
Every week on a Friday there is a free download on The Scrap Review. I think this trio of images by Daniela Dobson would be good for Project Life and cards in particular and features those still on-trend chevrons!
Have you seen any good cutting files out there, particularly free ones? Do you use the Silhouette Studio software or prefer something like MTC or SCAL?
Have you seen that I’ve added my blog button to my sidebar? If you want to use it, you are more than welcome to!
Also, I won a Liebster blog award from Rachael… I’m going to think about who I’m going to nominate and the facts about myself in a future entry! Rachael’s blog is super cute and fun, she def seems to be a kindred spirit of mine with tea and crafts two of her main loves!
