Cricut Craft Room finally fixed the bug that spit out the mat on some machines after each cut! To celebrate I’ve put together a few quick digis and a video to show how to cut them, or your own images or sentiments, with Cricut Craft Room. This demonstrates the hinge method, which also works in the same way with the Gypsy and Cricut Design Studio, as well as many other software packages on many other cutters.
Download the PDF here (goes with the Accent shape in Cricut Craft Room Basics cut at 2 inches) Be sure to print at 100%.
I have a new sheet of printables for you today. Like the previous sets, these are custom digistamps presized to fit a popular punch. This set goes with the EK Tools Flourish Square Large punch (pictured below). I’d love to see any cards or other projects you make with these!
Update: Lindsay over at Frugal Crafter shows a great technique for using this punch for borders. If you have this punch you’ll want to check out her video.
My first set of digis to match the EK Tools “Real Estate Sign” Punch was so popular that I decided to share some more. Most are for Mothers Day but a few different takes for Fathers Day, too. I’d love to link to a card you make with one of these, so let me hear from you if you are able to use these.

The big name stamping catalogs have all these great rubber and/or acrylic stamps to match punches and vice versa, but what about all those other punches and nesting dies we already have? Surely some artistic folks have put together digistamps to go with those. I mean, with these old school tools you avoid all the print and cut issues inherent with the newer technologies. Just line ‘em up and punch ‘em out. It could hardly be easier. So digital images and templates to match popular punches must be plentiful, right? Umm, no. In fact, I couldn’t find any. Instead I found all kinds of complicated instructions about how to measure and make your own MSWord etc. docs for sentiments. This seems woefully inefficient to my engineer brain, so today I am doing something about it and sharing the files I use with one of my favorite punches, the “Real Estate Sign” from EK Tools. If you own this punch, please download and enjoy this file and let me see what you do with it. If you have punch-coordinating files of your own, I hope you’ll post them and let me know so I can link you up here. And if you are a punch or die manufacturer, you can thank me later.
Update: I did find one other PDF printable to match this punch here.
My tutorial on how to make these is here.
