$2 Tuesday - Mardi Gras masks, a Freebie and a freebie from me!

And be sure to "like" Lettering Delights on Facebook - they are striving for 700 more fans! If they do that in the next 16 days there will be lots of freebies to celebrate! So be sure to sign up and have your friends sign up as well. (The link to this freebie is on their FB page - no links here. Hint: you can also do a search for the file name from here and you will find it).

 And now.....drumroll.........a freebie from me!
Have you ever had one of those corner punches that allow you to slip a photo in the slots (like above) and you end up with a mat for your photos? I had several but I could never get them to just the exact size for my photos - they always ended up either too big or too small. Well, spacing is super easy in MTC - so MTC to the rescue!

I call them Custom Corner Cuts - and I am working on several. Here is the first, I call it Custom Corner Cuts - Lattice.
 (That's my niece and great-niece - excuse the colors, this is a photo of a photo. I promise it looks better in person! The focus is off a bit but you get the idea.  And I hope you like yellow; I have a ream of yellow paper so I am using it for all my test cuts).
I also have a variation - this one is similar to the Corner Adorner Slot Punch punch called Square Steps. But my version is completely designed by me in MTC using Basic Shapes and thin paths.  I love to design in Make-the-Cut! And the photos fit perfectly, no more guessing or making multiple attempts before getting it right.
These files are for paper (I have not tested them yet on card stock) and sized for 4x6 photos. I cut them from 24# copy paper and they worked great (if you have any problems, email me at neldacnm at yahoo to let me know). You can get my file here - free through Friday only!

And as always - if you enjoy my files or posts, I appreciate it if you use my links for any purchases at stores with which I am affiliated: Lettering Delights, SVG Cuts, and Digi Web Studio.
