Oh, I have been having fun with designs for Halloween this year. The following files have been made available over at the store.

Haunted Ladders - Decorating for Halloween

As a companion project I also design the Haunted Casket which can be displayed either vertically or horizontally. Optional LED tea lights can be inserted inside to add an internal spooky glow.

I also create a series of spider web files to 12 x12 card stock. These are available for 99¢ here

I hope you have fun creating centerpieces and spooky mantle arrangements for your holiday decor. Please share any photos you have. I'd love to see your creations.  You can share them on Facebook, or pinterest or send them to me at marji@3dcuts.com.

Happy crafting everyone!

Work of Paul Kitching

It pleases me so to see fellow crafters that take my ideas and expand on them.  Paul Kitching sent me some photos of his application of my Loon Lake layered shadow box applied to wood.  What incredible patience he had to cut these fine details on a jig saw! Nicely done Paul.

3D Lantern Banner with LED Tea Lights

Just finished a 3D Lantern Banner designed to hold LED Tea Lights.  The design is flexible, works for any occasion and the letters can be removable so the lanterns can be re-used. What celebrations do you have coming up in your life?

The cutting files for the complete banner construction set including the lantern, plus all letters and numbers are available at my site here. And you can view the detailed tutorial here.

Make the lanterns once and use them for multiple occasions. The letters (and tops) can be changed. The back pivots open and an LED tea light can be placed inside to provide a flickering glow.

I made this version for my granddaughter.....

More Gears

I have always had the challenge of creating a 3D gear on my crafting to do list.  I collect gears of all shapes and sizes and I knew this would be an interesting addition plus a design challenge.  I have created cutting files for 2 different gears that do mesh together but more importantly, I have done it in a way that allowed me to also create a tutorial so others can make them also!

Check out my latest cutting files - Steampunk Gears

The larger gear stands about 8" tall and is 1.25" thick so it stands on its own. The smaller gear is about 6.5" tall.

The cutting files are available here.

The assembly tutorial can be viewed here.

Finally the Winterberry Shadow Box!

There are many files in my Silhouette Store that I designed years ago, before I was also designing for other cutting machines. These are not in svg format and can only be made so by re-creating them. It takes time - lots of it.  But one by one, during quiet times, I work on these. One that is requested most frequently is the Winterberry Shadow Box. Today, I am pleased to announce that is done! Set to go! Ready for Download!

 
 
  • The cutting files are available for purchase here.
  • A very complete tutorial is here.

Happy Crafting!

Tea Light Village created by Others

The Tea Light Village I created back in 2013 but then added new buildings to each year is really doing well this year. It continues to be my best seller on Silhouette and has taken off here at 3dcuts. com. I have received many nice emails from people about home much they love it. Recently Edith Baerten from Belgium sent along a photo of her village.

She has done a beautiful job and added a few wonderful embellishments. I love that she is using led string lights. I am going to get some for my village as well. And I especially like some of the  ways she achieved various heights for display. The dusting of show adds so much. Do you have pictures to share of your tea light village? I'd love to see them.

Here is a link to the files: Purchase files here.

And to the Tutorial: How to make these here.

Oh My stars!

I was working on a new 3D star concept that didn't work out but a surprise file is this stunning 2D Star.

 

I was inspired by reading about the Line Segment Overcut Setting in the new version of Silhouette Design Studio.  It does a great job at cutting crisp, sharp corners and this design is filled with them!

I took a few minutes and created a tutorial about this tool. Check it out here

I don't design 2D designs often and that causes problems in my store.  I have a great page filled with 3D Stars but now it also includes a 2d option as well! Have you started creating Stars for July 4th decorations? Try some of these.....
