New products and I'm back after moving!

I'm finally BACK!   I've moved, the house is "put back together", including my craft room yesterday thanks to my friend who came out from the west Houston area just to help me with it, and the kids are both back in school giving me time to work.   It was bleak over the summer, but I am getting back into the groove now.   For October, I have a TON of things scheduled.

First, I want to mention the Labor Day sale!     30% OFF your entire cart (excludes the bundles and gift certificates)
August 29th - September 6th ONLY!

AGELESS ANTIQUES 1 - FREE with ANY PURCHASE from Sept 1-24!  Just add it to your cart of other purchases during the promotional period and checkout/pay for the others, and this download is included free.

AGELESS ANTIQUES 2 - More antiques!  These and the #1 set were clear stamp images from LONG ago at another company, but now in my ownership. These images have been retired and not available for years.  Now in digital format!

CAROUSEL DEER - FINALLY!  The 12th in the carousel series, so what does that mean?? You can now make a calendar with a different carousel animal for each month!  But if you want to wait to get started, there is a coordinating elements pack in the works for next month.

CARD CUT 7 SVG - by Lori McCroskey - This awesome e-template for your e-cutter can be manipulated into 11 different design layouts. Pretty cool!  Just import the SVG file into your ecutting software and follow manufacturer instructions for cutting.

ANTIQUE DESK - Cool antique desk works well with the Pen & Ink or Office Accents set.

HOLIDAY MINI MAZES - 16 mazes total, 2 different paths for each shape shown.  Great for inside kid cards.

MAZE DIGI PAPER - Larger mazes to use as backgrounds on large scrapbook pages or maybe even wrapping a small gift box, or using to cut an SVG box template out of.  The larger the maze, the more challenging it is too.  Only 1 correct path thru each, a PDF answer sheet is included.

LITTLE CHRISTMAS SCRIPTURES - Full set of Christmas greetings and several digi papers.

TOOTHPASTE & TOOTHBRUSH - These were dollar stamps long ago, since retired. Now available in digi format.

YARD YABBER -For your hard working man, or woman.  This was a clear stamp set long ago, retired and then offered as a digi set at another company before becoming under my ownership.  I recolored the images and created new digital papers.

GLORY DAYS - Military planes, some old and some newer styles.  This was a clear stamp set from long ago, long been retired and not available for years.  Now in digi format!  Good for Military cards.

Thank you for visiting to see our newest products, I hope you are inspired to create and wish you a blessed Labor Day!

Using our PNG images with Silhouette equipment and software

Do you have a Silhouette e-cutter and Designer software?  If so, you may have been intermittently experiencing some trouble using our PNG images and papers, images not appearing or faintly appearing.
After a couple of customers brought the problem to my attention a couple weeks ago, and a few Creative Team members (and one past member) tried some files for me to detail out the problems they were having, I was able to contact a representative of Silhouette to explain the issue.  He worked with their technical team to isolate the problems.

After just one day of assessment, they discovered the problem and are incorporating a fix which will be released in their next update, which will be mid to late September.  WOW!  Talk about AWESOME customer service, right?  I was thinking it would take months and I would be put on the back burner, but no, they got on it right away.

If I hadn't spent $400 on a Zing and Make the Cut last year, I would be ordering a Silhouette RIGHT NOW.  Not only have I heard great things about the ease of use of the equipment and software from friends, but their customer service is truly beyond compare!
They actually care about not just customers abilities to use files, but also those of us who create files for customers to use.  I am very impressed!

So if you have had some trouble using Doodle Pantry PNG files with your Silhouette, PLEASE be sure to get the very next update in September for your Silhouette.  After you've had a chance to get your Silhouette software update, try using any PNG file, old or new, from Doodle Pantry and please let me know the outcome.

UPDATED:  One of my DT passed on a temporary work around that seemed to work for her. Open the PNG in PSE (Photoshop Elements) and "Save as" a PNG (at 300 ppi and non-interlaced). And then use the newly saved file in your Silhouette Designer software. Not sure if it will work for everyone, but I figured it was worth a shot to pass on as something to help you until Silhouette releases their update for the software which will fix the problem that their software had using some PNG images.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and p.s. Be sure to stop by this weekend.... we will have a LABOR DAY sale, and also NEW products released on September 1st!
