Important news!

Well, I've got some good news for some of you...We are branching out to the SVG file formats at Paperthreads! As a design team, we want to offer our files in a consistent way, and so would appreciate any and all comments and input on this...please take the time to complete the poll and add any comment or discussion, and please send any other Cricut users this way, to help us make sure we provide the most useful format for all users! You can get to the poll HERE! You will have to have a userid and be logged into the Paperthreads forum in order to see the poll or vote, but membership is FREE! And that way, you'll be among the first to know when we start offering SVGs (and in the meantime you can take a look at some of the great inkscape tutorials!)

Tip...if you've never been on Paperthreads, open the forum link in a new window, create a userid and password, then check your email for the activating link. Once you're an active member come back to this blog post and follow the link to the poll.

Now, just in case you didn't know it...we've got over 3,000 files for sale in the store! I only have a measly 170 of those files, but converting them is still going to be a chore. So, I need your help! Stop by my section of the store, browse through the files, and leave me a comment with which files you'd be most interested in purchasing in SVG for use with your SCAL program/Cricut.

I'll start working through the files based on requests! So, let me hear from you! Do you have a file request or an idea for a file that you don't see? Well, leave me a comment or send me an email and we'll see what I can come up with!

WOW! That was an amazing day!

Yesterday was a fabulous NSD! I hope you had a lot of fun! I just wanted to make sure you knew the party is not over quite yet for Jen Adkins Designs. That's right, to celebrate my birthday, I'm giving YOU the present! All my files are 35% off at Paperthreads for the next 24 hours! (Sale end Sun May 3rd at Midnight!)

And for those of you that have been following my comic book saga (of Speedcutter? was it??), my latest collection is now available at Paperthreads It's my Comically Yours Collection and includes 20 files perfect for all your bumps, bruises, boo-boos, and melodrama.

A special thank you to all the Cricut/SCAL users who dropped by and downloaded the SVG version of my Summer Sunflower yesterday! If you voted on my poll regarding files types that would be most useful, thanks again! Otherwise, Michelle (aka Paperthreads) has a poll on the forum that you should check out.

Happy NSD!

Hello to all my blog visitors, both old and new!

I hope you are enjoying your National Scrapbooking Day so far! I've been busy this week, prepping some new files for the store and getting ready for my sale. What's that you say? You didn't know? Well hurry on over to my section of the store at Paperthreads. You'll get the best deals today, all my files are 40% off! Don't worry if you can't get there today, because to celebrate my birthday tomorrow, all my files will be 30% off on Sunday May 3rd!

One of my latest files is my Living on the Edge Collection, it's a great deal anyway for those of you who love borders or paper edging, but with the sale it works out to just 26 cents per border file! (You can't get plain cardstock for that price, LOL!)

So what are you waiting for? Hurry on over to Paperthreads to check out the savings!

Just in case you want to try before you buy, I've got a great goody for you today to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. It's my Summer Sunflower file. I originally designed this to be cut large (like 11.5 inches!) as an overlay on a scrapbooking page, but it cuts well at 5 inches too, making it perfect for those of you with smaller width cutters or cardmakers!

Now this file is available for download today only, and it is still governed by my Terms of Use, so please, if you like the file and want to share the joy, please send your friends here directly instead of sharing the file!

You can download just the file type you need for your cutter, instructions and a pic of the finished project are included! *Sorry, the download link has expired* If you missed it, watch for it soon at Paperthreads!






The password is IagreetoTOU . (Just in case you weren't sure, yes, I do have this free download available in SVG for all you SCAL users with your Cricut!)

Oh, and I'm not the only one partying today, you'll want to check out some of the other designers' blogs too...

Don't forget to share the love and let the designers know what you think by leaving a comment!
