Incomplete without you



Ever since I started using Lettering Delights' files with my electronic cutters, I hardly ever use any non-LD fonts or images any more. Today's card is the exception. Although the heart shape did come from LD Simple Frames, the sentiments are made from free downloads from the internet. You can download the CAC Champagne font from HERE and the Murray Hill font from HERE.



The Jigsaw Generator is a well-kept secret. It is a program that comes as a separate plug-in for Make-the-Cut and is accessed from the Make-the-Cut directory and not from inside the program. By combining the heart shape and a jigsaw SVG made by the MTC Jigsaw Generator, I managed to transform the heart into a puzzle. 





Even though I have been posting tutorials and projects made with the Silhouette Studio program lately, I have also been using the MTC-Cameo plug-in to cut to my Silhouette Cameo. Tomorrow I will tell you why I choose MTC over the Silhouette Studio program. If you have written to ask for a software recommendation, tomorrow's post will have the answer you have been waiting for.

    1. I'm sorry but I don't know of any SCAL puzzle generator, Litzy. I don't use SCAL and the puzzle generator that I used came with MTC. You may get a better answer from the SCAL folks over that the CraftEdge forum (http://forum.surecutsalot.com/).
