Still More Snowflakes! (with Home Accents)

Has it stopped snowing yet? I remembered that there were several snowflakes on the Home Accents cartridge - so I put those in circles too. I can't believe how addictive these have become. I am thinking of making a "curtain" of snowflakes to hang in the window - but first I think I'll add a bit of sparkle.

A few more ideas for using these files - you can adjust the size to fit a round cookie cutter and then use the cut as a "stencil" for sprinkling colored sugar on the cookie or on the frosting of a cupcake. You can also place these on a card and sponge ink over the cut to produce a negative image of the snowflake. I will post photos of some of these soon.

Below are close up photos of all of these variations - due to the shape of the third snowflake the design looks more like a negative space image but I could not make the center snowflake any smaller and still get it to weld to the circle.

One more view of the set (without the odd looking snowflake #3).

Thank you to all who have been commenting on the blog. I hope that I didn't sound like I was complaining when I mentioned the question I had about the lack of comments on the 4Shared downloading site - I was just trying to figure out why there was a sudden cut off of comments on the downloading pages. A few people did let me know that the download page now says you need to register in order to leave a comment. I am not sure how or why that changed but now I understand why there was a drastic shift in the pattern of comments. My view of the pages as the account holder is the same as before so I appreciate hearing what had changed when blog visitors click to download.

So....are you cutting these and making projects with them? I'd love to see what you have done.

  6. Hi Diane -

    I hope you realize that there are a great many of us that truly appreciate all your hard work and your sharing of your .cut files! I went to your download site and was going to leave a message there but had no option to do so without logging in (I don't have an account) or signing up (I don't want an account). My options were showns as:
    Would you like to comment?
    Join 4shared for a free account, or log in if you are already a member.

    Maybe that's why people don't leave comments there - just wanted to let you know.

    Thanks again for all you do!

  7. Thanks so much for all your sharing! And what a good idea about using them on cookies for sugaring!!! I too could not leave a comment on 4 sharing...there was no place to leave one that I could see. I may be blind though!!! Thanks again!


  8. As always your designs are so pretty and useful. I visit your blog regularly and really should comment more often. Often I don't have the carts needed to cut your pieces, but I still love to look. Great job.

  9. Thanks for the snowflake designs. They are all so great.

  10. Diane,
    Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful designs! I can't wait to work on the snowflakes. I decorate my tree using blue, white and silver with KMart's First Snow ornaments. I'll be adding some of your snowflakes to it this year! And exciting news is that I've gotten the Expression for Christmas (yes, a little early) and can cut all of your designs now. Yippeeeeeeeeee!!!! Jill

  14. Thank you Diane! I look forward to your posts and beautiful work.
