New: Lots of Letters Cut Files!

Today we have a special treat and a new video for Lots of Letters!  These new cut files for Lots of Letters that we've added to the store today were inspired by the "Kisses" card I made for our release using a punch to create a string of attached round windows for the letters. For only 99 cents each, you can purchase Studio cut files from Gina K Designs for three different shaped images in the stamp set that will allow you to make both tags and windows for words up to seven letters along (straight or "wonky", or detached) plus a shaped mat for adding them to, in just the spot you want them, where no punch could reach, 
check it out! 
Gina has a video here demonstrating some samples with the different files

Here is just one way to use them. I chose to drop these open, perfectly spaced circles (they are grouped together in the file, so you don't have to worry about them moving around!) on a diagonal onto the scalloped mat, then sent to my Silhouette Cameo to cut.
 
Next, place the cut mat over your card base and stamp the circles and letters inside, easy peasy! I also used the "three circle" cut part from another card I was working on that day (which I will share next Monday during our Inspiration Hop!) to stamp the word "pea". Isn't that fun?  Completely customizable, making stamping and spacing even easier, and adds so many looks for your cards with amazing results!
 Circles are stamped in Memento Angel Pink and letters and image with Espresso Truffle.  Card uses Pure Luxury Kraft and White, Seeing Spots CB folder, pea image from Garden Fresh.
Finish with a bit of green bakers twine and pink gingham.
  Here's what the cut pieces looked like after sending to the Silhouette.
See how you can also use the negative pieces for other projects
 
 You can't do that with dies or punches!

Each file contains all of the following shapes.  Choose your favorite or get them all for fun mixing and matching!
 
Tip: To use the unconnected circles for words shorter than 5 letters, select that chain of circles, duplicate, then ungroup and subtract the circles you don't want to use. 



 And here is the original Lots of Letters Studio file that will cut out all the shapes in the stamp set individually.  

If you want, for example, 6  cut "tile" pieces to stamp on, simply select that shape and duplicate 6 times in a new file to cut.   
 I heart my Silhouette Cameo, and these files take my new favorite set Lots of Letters to the next level! LOVE!!

Thanks for visiting, have a great weekend!
