More fences

OK, so what is it about fences that make me think of spring? Maybe the thought of grass growing up around it, or the crisp contrast between the white fence and the new grass?  I am not sure but I have another free fence file for you. 
(click on image above to download file from pogoplug link)
I still haven't been inspired yet on what to do with the green card. It sets forlornly on my desk looking at me and hoping to be released into creativity some day soon. It seems like maybe it needs some flowers or a rose or two. Hmmm....
It looks like my blade might be getting a little rough, I'll have to change it out before the next cut.

Paper, papers and more paper.

I went to the local Staples looking at the different kids of inkjet papers.  I bought some of them to try and have been pleased with several.

You might not think that simple paper can make a difference, but it really does.  The inkjet "presentation" type of papers have a special coating on it to allow the ink to become brilliant and vibrant.  Be sure to look for this coating (this is not the "color lok" emblem, that is not as good as the coating).  Here is an example of the difference. The one is regular "color lok" paper, 24 #, the other is 32# coated inkjet "presentation" paper. The picture makes it look better than it really is, in real life, the one is very pale in comparison.
These are napkin rings for my friend's wedding, her colors are red, white and black.

Next time you are at your local office store, check out the papers that are inkjet coated and try one out.

MTC cut file for the Target Mailboxes

Hey! It's that time of the year - head off to Target to get your annual fix of their $1 mailboxes.  They are out just in time for Valentine's Day!  So today I have for you a MTC file for covering the mailbox.

Every mailbox is just a little different but this cut fit mine almost perfectly. You will still need to make a slit from the edge into the circle.  I had the cut there but it cut roughly so I removed it. This file fits on 8.5 x 11 paper and has an extra piece (the rectangle in the lower right) to cover the bottom of the mailbox.
Grab the file from my PogoPlug or Box.net.

For a tutorial on how to cover, just do a quick search on youtube - there are several videos out on assembly. Here's just one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LwRRSrFwYw&feature=related  (it uses a DS cut file, but same principles).

Pickett Fence border file

I've been drooling over the Martha Stewart Pickett Fence border punch but have never been able to find it at a convenient time or price.  So I decided to design my own in MTC, and post it here for your to share.  I would love to see your cards or designs done with it!  I also added a grass file to go with it. Enjoy!
I have several different variations, the one shown above is 03. Click the images to download through my PogoPlug or see the links to Box.net below.
