Saturday Freebie #15!

There's Snowflakes Like Home!

[EDIT: These files are no longer available via my blog. Email me for details of how to access them]

It's Saturday again, and that can only mean one thing - an awful pun for the title of this post! No, that's not what I mean, I mean it's time for some new, original, FREE shapes for you to download!!

Today's selection are snowflakes - useful for cardmakers, scrapbookers and all-round paper-crafters! No holiday project is complete without them!!

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! Click on the images to see a larger view.

I covered this box frame with gold acrylic paint and distressed it before stamping on it with Archival ink and colouring the images with Sakura gel pens. All the stamps I used on the frame and inside it were from the wonderful Victorian Christmas plates by the Artistic Stamper. I coloured the snowflakes red and stamped on them, just to try something a little out of the ordinary!! I think they suit this project well, and if you squint, they almost remind you of poinsettias!

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 4 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 (JPG 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! :)

Missee said...

Hi Dan,

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful files!

I was wondering if you have ever considered adding your name somewhere in the file.

I store my files by category in the same folder and when the designer has not entered their name I usually don't post the project because I can't give credit where it is due.

Thanks again for the wonderful files.
