Tumbler Box Size Guide

Tumbler Box Size Guide

Here is a guide showing you the different Tumbler Box SVG files we currently sell and the common tumbler sizes that fit within them. Just for clarification, these boxes are great for displaying personalized tumbler creations, but are not a shipping box. Make sure you check the dimensions of our boxes ensure your tumbler will fit prior to purchasing the files.

Cardstock Recommendation for Tumbler Boxes

It is recommended to use 80 LB or greater weight cardstock or cover. Most refutable brands will contain this information on their packaging. Two of the brands I regularly use are 80 LB American Crafts Textured Paper from American Crafts and 110 LB Neenah cover cardstock for designs that are sized to cut on letter-size.  See product details for each SVG file for size compatibility.  The panels are optional but do strengthen the box, if added.

eCAL 2 Keyboard Shortcut Reference for Sizzix eClips

eCAL 2 Keyboard Shortcut Reference for Sizzix eClips

Many of you know I use multiple die cutting machines.  In addition to the Cricut and Silhouette die cutters, I own a Sizzix eClips 2.  The software I used with the eClips is eCAL 2, which is a specialized version of Sure Cuts A Lot for Sizzix eClips die cutting machines.  I am one that likes to optimize my time, so I am a fan of keyboard shortcuts in software. I was unable to find a nice handy compact reference for keyboard shortcuts anywhere, so I made my own and I am sharing it.

Here is the link to the reference PDF file:  Keyboard Shortcuts For Craft Edge eCAL 2.  This is a one page reference only. There are other shortcuts, but these are the most common. They have helped me optimize my time within the eCAL 2 software and I hope others find it helpful too!

As of 4/11/2018, CraftEdge support confirmed the Windows software version 2.035 does not currently have the keyboard shortcuts active for loading/unloading the mat. This may be added in a future update.

We also have a few helpful tutorials for eCAL 2 on our Youtube channel.  Here is the link to the playlist, which will grow over time.

Dashed Scorelines Be Gone!  (at least for some folks)

Dashed Scorelines Be Gone! (at least for some folks)

For years, consumer SVG cutting files for boxes, bags, and cards included dashed scorelines only. This is because earlier die cutting machines had the capability to cut the dashed line to allow folding.  With technology advancements, the consumer die cutters continue to get better and better.  Some now even have the capability of scoring solid lines!  This is the reason we are now are including two different scorelines versions in all our new Simply Crafty SVG files.  One will be in the traditional dashed format AND the other a solid scoreline version.

What does that mean to me and should I really care?

If you are using a machine capable of using solid scorelines, you might care.  Using the files located in the solid_scorelines folder will allow those with Cricut Explore and Sizzix eClips2 to score a solid line, instead of dashed lines. Many people prefer this, as it is a cleaner look.  If you do have a compatible machine, we have included these files to use instead of the files with dashed scorelines. So, when you see a file with a dashed scoreline, check the solid_scorelines folder and import that version instead of the dashed version.

Cricut Users:

Cricut Design Space users, this means you still have to attach and change the solid scorelines to “Score” within Design Space to use with your score tool.  You can will use the dashed scorelines version, if you prefer.  Some people still like to “cut” their scorelines instead of using the score tool, which is sometimes preferable for 3D type projects. Click here for additional Cricut help.  We have some more scoring tips here.

Sizzix eClips2 Users:

For Sizzix eClips2 users, change the Cut Line Type of the solid scorelines lines to “Score” instead of cut within eCal2.  If you prefer cutting the scorelines, go ahead and use the dashed scorelines version. Click here for addition eCAL help.

Why do you still include the dashed scorelines?  

We still include the dashed scorelines is to make sure our files are compatible with most die cutters that use SVG file, even if they do not have the capability to use the solid scorelines. We are not into exclusion.  We love all technology!

What if I have a Silhouette Cameo?  Is there a way I can cut solid lines?

Great news!  We created this video tutorial to show you how you can use the second tool with a ratchet blade to easily score using a light kiss cut. Click here to view the video. I use it all the time and it works great! For more Silhouette help, click here.

I hope this was helpful to you all!  Happy Crafting!

Cricut Design Space – Save Paper Using Mat Preview

Cricut Design Space – Save Paper Using Mat Preview

Here is another Cricut Design Space tip for my Cricut Explore users.  For this video, I will show you how to move and rotate images on the mat preview within the Desktop version of Design space, so you can easily use different size papers and scraps.  If you take the default layout from Design Space, it often does not arrange the images optimally on the mat for paper usage.

For iPad Cricut Design Space users, you can also move and rotate images within the mat preview with your finger or stylus.  There is also a lot of Material Size options within the iPad IOS App.  There is also a feature called SnapMat that allows you to take a picture of your mat to optimize scraps.  Click here to view Cricut’s SnapMat FAQ.

Cricut Design Space: Save Paper Using the Attach Option

For those that use Cricut Design Space, I would like to share a tip I use in Cricut Design space that will help you conserve valuable paper and cardstock.

Often, when cutting from within Design Space, I notice a lot of paper waste when viewing a project in the mat.  For those paper lovers out there that want to conserve paper, here is a tip on how you can use the Attach option within Cricut Design Space to do just this!

Our 7 Favorite Tools for Paper Crafting

Our 7 Favorite Tools for Paper Crafting

  1. Die Cutting machines (Of course!)

    blog-7-favorite-tools-05
    I love the idea, you can design and cut paper via die cutters now. I still love my scissors, but using these machines is a time saver and it is amazing what you can do with them.  I currently own 3 die Cutters (a Cricut Explore, Cricut Explore Air, and original Silhouette Cameo).  For my paper designs, both machines are very equal in their capabilities.  However, I prefer to use the Cricut when working from my laptop, due to Bluetooth capabilities and Smart Set Dial.  The newly released Silhouette Cameo 3 does have Bluetooth capabilities and a new AutoBlade, but my original Cameo is a workhorse.  I cannot justify another machine quite yet.

  2. Die Cutting Software

    For cutting and designing simple SVG files, here are the three software packages I use frequently (other than Adobe Illustrator).

    Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) from CraftEdge

    scal

    Mostly, I like Sure Cuts A Lot for the ease of creating SVGs, the ability to cut directly to the Silhouette Cameo, and the ease of exporting Cricut Design Space (DS) compatible SVGs.  It is like a mini Adobe Illustrator for Die Cutting machines. Whatever die cutter you own, it is worth taking a look. They have a Trial version available to try the software. You can curve text by using the Text on a Path or use other effects to change shapes easily. Or add a background by using the Shadow Layer effect.

    Silhouette Studio (Designer Edition)

    silstudio

    Even though I am able to cut designs on the Cameo using SCAL, I also use Silhouette Studio.  I use the Designer Edition, which is a minor upgrade that grants the software additional capabilities, like the ability to import SVG files.  As with SCAL, it has some advanced design features that are not found in Cricut Design Space, like Offset feature and curved text by adding it to a curved path or circle, or any type path for that matter.

    Cricut Design Space

    cricutds

    Design Space is the cloud-based software used to cut to the Cricut Explore.  You can upload SVG files for free. I like how the software groups images with same color on separate mats, rather than having to manually move the images about on a virtual mat.  I also like the Custom dial settings you can set from within the software, for non-standard paper and materials, like glitter and sticker paper.  It is cloud-based, so it stores your saved projects and uploaded SVGs and Internet connection is required.  Mostly, I design outside of Design Space and use DS to cut to my Explore devices.   I do design Cricut DS image only projects, so I do use it for that purpose also.  Many times, I just want to work offline.  This is when I use SCAL or Silhouette Studio to cut to my Cameo.

  3. Embossing Folders

    blog-7-favorite-tools-10

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE embossing folders!  They easily add texture to paper designs and can quickly take a box or card from “cute” to “fantastic”!   I use a Big Shot manual die cutting machine, because it is a workhorse. I can also use it with the few dies I still have.  There are other smaller embossing/die cutting machine options available that do the same, like the Cuttlebug.If you have not read it, check out 5 Fun Embossing Folder Tips.

  4. Chalk and Chalk Ink

    blog-7-favorite-tools-06

    Besides embossing folders, I use the technique of chalking or inking regularly.  I use both to enhance a design.  I like to use both to outline cuts to give them depth.   Chalks are easier to work with and if I make a mistake, I can erase the chalk easily with a white eraser before it sets.  Chalks are also more subtle than inks.

    I primarily use Pebbles Chalk sets and Craf-T Decorating Chalks (not sure if they are in business anymore).  You can create shading and different colors by layering different chalk colors.Most of the time, I use Colorbox Cat’s Eye Chalk Ink to ink paper edges, but mainly for larger pieces, as it is hard to manuever the ink into small parts.  It is permanent, so once it is there, I cannot take it back.  It just depends what look I want.

  5. Glitter Glue (like Stickles)

    blog-7-favorite-tools-08

    I like to add little glitter touches to my designs.  Every design needs a little bling.  For this, I mostly use Stickles and honestly, I use the clear colors the most.  Using colored paper, I sometimes just want to add a sparkle, so I will add a bit of Diamond or Crystal Stickles.  It just makes it pop a bit from the design. I do have every color Stickles though! Never too many supplies!

    Make your own box to hold your glitter glue, as shown above.  Click here to buy Glitter Glue Holder SVG Design.

  6. Glue/Adhesive (How could I work without glue?!)

    blog-7-favorite-tools-07

    The latest glue I have been using is Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive.  It dries very quickly when working on 3D boxes.  However, I prefer the Quick Dry Tacky Glue.  It does not dry as quickly, but gives me a little more time to move things into place before it dries.  I also use Zig 2-Way Glue pen for small pieces and foam tape to give a design element a more dimensional look.  I am always looking for a better glue.

  7. Brads

    blog-7-favorite-tools-09

    Brads are a great way to add a 3D design element.  I use brads a lot on the corners of card mats.  I also like to use them to make a pattern on a card or design or to attach a word tag or label.

    TIP:  If you have lots of permanent markers, ink and/or Stickles (like me!), you can get spruce up a plain metallic brad easily.  I changed a standard gold into a glitter brown brad with a brown dye ink stamp pad and Diamond clear Stickles.  I can just make any color I need!
