Happily Ever After and Once Upon a Time

Every so often, I'd come across an LD set that doesn't need words to show off its magnificence. This morning Lettering Delights released two such collections. The new Happily Ever After and Once Upon A Time are so beautiful there really is no need for my idle chatter. Instead, let me share some pictures to show you what a nice job LD has done with these SVGs.



 

 


See what I mean? No words. There are no words good enough to show you how easy it is to layer these cut outs, and how pretty the assembled pieces look. Grab your Happily Ever After and Once Upon a Time Collections, by clicking HERE and see how amazing these cut files are.

p.s. Use the coupon CIRCUSFUN to take $5 off a $20 purchase.(expired)

  3. Wow, those are so nice. My daughter was next to me when I was looking at them and she jumped from the couch yelling that those are sooo pretty and asked me if I can make them for her. I am new to all these kinds of crafts and I just ordered my silhouette cameo yesterday but I’m not sure how can I start and where should I start to understand the basics? I was reading a lot for the last week and I feel like I’m so confused right now, so would you please help me and tell me where should I get some more information? i really would like to make these pretty Happily Ever After and Once Upon a Time Collections for my daughter so would you please make a video tut for them. Thanks for your help :)

  4. Good afternoon. I saw these pictures and I bought it. What happens is the following, I try to open with cameo silhouette, and I can not open anything. What am I doing wrong?

    1. To use LD SVGs with Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, you must first Ungroup the image, and open the Cut Style window and set all cut lines to "Cut".

  5. The problem is that I can not open the file in silhouette. Says that the silhouette does not support the file.

  6. The program I have is that it downloads on the net. The basics. Are there differences?

  7. The basic Silhouette Studio program will import graphics files. To use the LD SVG (Cut Its), you will need Silhouette Designer Edition or Make-the-Cut program. Are you trying to use SVGs with your basic Silhouette Studio program? If you bought the Cut Its, but only have the free Sil Studio, try using the DXF files instead. The DXF format is also included in the Cut Its and you can cut out the layers out with Sil Studio.

  8. "Are you trying to use SVGs with your basic Silhouette Studio program?"

    1. The Cut Its include the DXF files. You CAN use dxf files to cut with your basic Silhouette Studio. :)

    2. Also when you are opening the files the default extension is ".studio" so to find the other types of files, for example, the ".dxf" type, click on the down arrow beside the extension type. You will be able to see the dxf as an option.

      FYI...you do have to unzip the file you downloaded before you can see the other types of files. Right click on the file name to unzip it (aka extract files) first, then you should be able to see multiple folders representing the various types of file extensions available.

  10. Jin, you are the true artist by bringing these sets to life...you can see beyond the paper to know what will make these cuts look so beautiful. Thank You for sharing your work in a way that anyone can learn how to do what you do. You make us all look good!

  11. Jin...some questions for you... how are the princesses standing up for your display? Do you have them propped up or is there a "stand" for them? Remember paper dolls had a shape with a slit to put crossways to stand them up on their own? It was typically a half circle with the slit at the mid-arch.

    What paper do you use for your LD file cutting? The glittered paper...premade or did you embellish it? Love that paper!!

    Finally, when you open these files, they are in many parts/colors. Do you just group all like colors on one cutting mat...or instance, the cheek color for the princesses...do all those go on one sheet of cardstock, cut out then another sheet is cut that is yellow is loaded and cut for all the yellow on all the princesses and so on...

    OR, do you cut one doll out at a time, laying out a mosaic of cardstock on one mat? For instance you know you will need a little pink for the cheeks, yellow blue and white for the dress, black for the hair so you put all the cardstock colors on the mat at one time to cut out for one entire doll?

    Last question...About what size are the princesses..height wise.

    Thanks!

  17. I love these also and have a question like JH ..what paper did you use?
    additinally did you have to load the mat several times to get the different color pieces? or did you just piece the papers on the mat? i am still trying to fine tuning my mat paper placement to ensure i get the right cut in the right piece of paper.. Can you do a tutorial on these princesses?
    thanks Jin as always you are so awesome

  18. Hey everyone,
    I just wanted to let y'all know that I've seen all your questions regarding this set and I'm working on a tutorial that will address them. It's a busy month for me as it is the end of the school year and I'm focusing on my kids' school stuff, but I will try to get the tut out as soon as I can manage.

    Thanks for your patience!

    Jin

  20. Hi Jin! These are adorable! May I ask what kind of cardstock you use for Cinderella and Snow White? I'm having a horrible time finding cardstock in the right color and would love to make some for my daughter. Thank you so much! :)
