Good Evening!

I realize it has been awhile since I last posted. Don and I have been so busy... spending time with family and friends, visiting our dear grand-daughter, enjoying this gorgeous weather while Spring cleaning the yard and our rear deck. I believe every spare moment I'm doing one of the above or sleeping, I've been busy creating for the upcoming craft show. What a lot of work! I hope it pays out in the end, LOL!


One of my personal goals this year is to learn more and more about using my Cricut and the DS software. I was so stoked today when I was able to use what little knowledge I have to design the cuts for a 4"x6"x1.5" Hinged Lid Box. I discovered a little tutorial on how to rename layers in DS here: http://susanbluerobot.blogspot.com/2008/01/helping-with-changing-layer-name.html and used this conversion chart:
to convert inches into decimal since that is how the shape properties box is set up in the CDS.

I have one small correction to make to the chipboard structure and the file will be all set and ready for sharing! {Well, as soon as I figure that part out, LOL!}


TFL!

Wow, great job on the box! I have a cricut and really don't use it! For some reason, the learning curve for me is REALLY big. This came out so nice.
