Lettering Delights' Hamburger and Grill (Backyard Fun)

Do you have Make-The-Cut or Sure-Cuts-A-Lot and want to try converting Lettering Delights' images but didn't want to have to pay for it? Now you have a chance! For a limited time, you can download the graphic set Lettering Delights' Backyard Fun for FREE! 

I downloaded the free set yesterday and managed to use MTC to cut out the grill and the burger. This is what the layers look like before I put them together:

A little gluing later resulted in this:

According to Lettering Delights' Terms of Sale, I am not allowed to offer a free download of the MTC cut file but I can tell you that to make the images cutable, I used Adobe Photoshop to make it black and white (Grayscale) and then adjust the Brightness/Contrast to hightlight the layers. I then traced the image in MTC to get the cut file. The MTC file for the burger looks like this:

Since the download is currently free, do give it a try. It may take a little time to get the hang of it but in my opinion, this is one of the easiest sets to convert. Do not spend money buying these graphic sets until you are sure that you can use them because some images are easier to convert than others. If you are interested in purchasing any of the font or graphic sets, you can use the code "Firecracker" for 60% off total purchase. Please use my affiliate link here. You can use the coupon unlimited times with no minimum purchase but it does expire on Friday, July 9, 2010, Midnight MDT.


  1. Cool - thanks for the tip. I have purchased some graphic sets but only printed them out. now I may have to try to convert. TFS!

  3. I tried to find this backyard fun kit and could not find it. I did see alot of get pieces of art. Can they be converted to Sure cuts alot?

  4. Hi Lynn,
