Saturday Freebie #11

Bracket book and journalling plate!!

[EDIT - Email me for access to these files!!]

It's Saturday again, and that can only mean one thing - it's time for some new, original, FREE shapes for you to download!!

It seems like the whole world has gone mini-book mad, so I thought I might as well join in with the fun! This weeks files are a funky bracket-edged journalling plate and files for the pages and covers of a bracket-shaped mini-book (of course it doesn't have to be "mini"... you can cut it as big or small as you want!!)

Cut them out in any size you like, in the cardstock of your choice! Use them to contain journalling on scrapbooking pages and messages on greetings cards!! Why not make them into funky frames for your scrapped photos, or to highlight a stamped image? The possiblilities are endless!

Here are images of the files, along with an idea of what the cut example will look like. As usual, I have cut these out on the Cricut before uploading them, to make sure that they cut as they should! As you can see, I was having so much fun making examples that I just couldn't stop! Oh, the cute stamps I've used are designed by my friend Hels in conjunction with the Artistic Stamper. Aren't they great!? Click on the images to see a larger view.




NOTE: If you want your covers to be the same size as your pages, use the page template for both. If you want the cover slightly larger, as shown above, use the cover template. It's proportions are a little different to the page, so that when it is slightly larger, it will still line up evenly down the left hand side, while the top, bottom and right give a nice border!

Again, these templates will be "live" for 1 week. Next Saturday, they will be taken down, and new ones will replace them. Don't forget, if you have any requests, pass them on! I can't promise, but I will take suggestions into account when planning future templates.

These files may not be uploaded to a group, forum or website for sale or redistribution, or shared among individuals. They are expressly for the personal use of each person that downloads them from this blog.


Because there are 3 files, I have put them into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open in the usual way, and drag the templates out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save them.

There are 3 versions of each template:
  • A printable version (GIF files) that you can import into a program like Word, then resize, print, cut out and use like any other paper template (these are NOT Word files, so don't use File/Open in Word! Use Insert/Picture to bring them into a Word document).
  • An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot program and then cut out on your Cricut.
  • A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Simply right click on the appropriate button below, and choose "save link..." or "save target..." and save your template!

Any feedback on the templates is more than welcome, and if you have any suggestions for possible future templates you'd like to see, please let me know! If you make anything using one of the templates, please post a link to it here so that others can be inspired by how you've used them!

I hope you like the templates - let me know how you get on! :)

Alright now Dan, every Friday night I sit down with high hopes of getting my layouts done and every week you either add to my to do list or give me great cuts to use with my layouts. Thank you so much for all of the hard work that goes into each and everyone of your cut files! I have had so much fun seeing what I can do with them.
