How to Download Files from the Cre8ive Cutz 99 Cent Store

I sometimes get emails from people asking how to re-download a file they’ve lost or that they didn’t receive the email with the download links when they made their purchase. So I thought it would be helpful to post a brief tutorial showing you how to download files directly from your store account, in the event you ever need to.

To begin, click on the Log In link at the top left of the 99 Cent Store. Type your Email Address and Password in the appropriate fields and click the Login button. If you’ve forgotten your password, click the Forgot Your Password? link and you will be able to have a new password emailed to you.
Cre8ive-Cutz-Downloading-FilesOnce you’ve logged in, click the My Account link at the top left of the screen.

Cre8ive-Cutz-Downloading-Files-01This will take you to your account home page where you’ll see a list of all the orders you’ve placed in the store. Find the order containing the file(s) you need to download and click the View button.

Cre8ive-Cutz-Downloading-Files-02This will take you to a page that shows everything you bought as part of that order. Each item should have a Download button beside it. (If you don’t see download buttons, this just means the links have expired. Email me at nancy@cre8ivecutz.com and I will reset the links for you.) Click the Download button for the file or files you would like to download, and the download will start for you.

New! – 3D Vintage Sewing Machine SVG Papercrafting Pattern

My mom taught me to sew at a pretty early age. It was a skill that had been passed down to her from her mother, and she was the most talented seamstress I’ve ever known. She taught me to sew on a Singer Featherweight, which is the machine this latest pattern is based on.

And what seamstress wouldn’t love to show off this beautiful 3D Vintage Sewing Machine in her studio? The balance wheel turns, the fabric plate lifts up and the base is a drawer that is large enough to hold a small gift or even a few sewing notions. The pattern also includes a spool so you can add embroidery floss or baker’s twine and thread the machine.

The finished Sewing Machine stands approximately 6 inches high and 8 inches wide. Score lines are included in the pattern for easy assembly. The download includes SVG, MTC (for Make the Cut! software), DXF and PDF files. Step by step illustrated assembly instructions are also included. This file cuts best on a 12×12 mat. For people without electronic cutters, a scissor cutting file in pdf is also included that can be printed on the 8 1/2 x 11″ paper of your choice and cut using scissors or a craft knife.

Photography Tutorial – What’s Your Angle?

Many times when we’re taking photos we just point the camera and click the button. And when we’re just trying to quickly capture the moment, that’s ok. However, sometimes we want to create an image to convey a particular feeling or perspective, and that’s when we really want to take some time to get it just right.

One of the (many) things that can make a big different in an image is the angle the photo is being taken from. My husband and I were just on a cruise, and if you’ve ever been on a cruise ship, you’ll know that sometimes the décor is absolutely amazing! We were wandering around the ship one day, and came across these beautiful tall chairs, so just for fun I wanted to have my picture taken sitting in one.

I’m always telling him to take photos of me from a higher angle (makes me look skinnier!) so he ended up snapping three, which you can see below. The only thing that moved between these three photos was his hand holding the camera, but what a difference that made!

The first was the angle he would normally take a picture from. Not only is it not a flattering photo of me, it doesn’t show the height of the chair at all, which was the main thing I wanted to show in the photo. Had this been the only photo he took, I would have been quite disappointed with the result.

Angle #1 – A Little Low

The second photo was taken pretty much at a straight-on angle. As you can tell, it’s definitely a more flattering photo of me, and also starts to show the height of the chair (they were really tall chairs!).

Angle 2 – Straight Ahead

And finally – the winner! This is not only a good photo of me (always important!) but it also does a beautiful job of showing off how tall the chairs really were, the point of the whole exercise to begin with! And remember, the only thing that moved between these three photos was my husband’s hand as he moved the camera higher.

Angle 3 – From Above

So why not try experimenting a little? Stand or sit in front of something — anything — even a chair, and snap photos as you move your camera up and down to see the results. If you practice on everyday objects when you have the time, then when you see something that you want to create an image of (and remember that’s different than just snapping photo) you’ll know exactly what to do in order to create the image just as you imagine it.
