Blast from the Past - Slider/Push Pull Card

Here is a fun card that I posted back in June 2008. The .cut file is included in the post.

Okay guys I am so cheating on this one! I know I usually post instructions and had intended to do so today BUT! My electricity got cut off today! I know I really should pay my bill instead of buy scrapping supplies! *okie gives a huge giggle*

Actually the electrician came today and put in a new breaker box.....with MORE AMPS!! WOOHOO!! I was so tired of having to remember that in the summer time the dryer can't be running while the dishwasher is running, if the bedroom ac's are on then don't use the microwave and all that jazz! So now I have 125 Amps instead of 100 and hopefully I can be cool and still wear dry clothes and have clean dishes!

Anyway I am posting the file for the SLIDER CARD/PUSH PULL CARD. If you want to see directions you can go to this link: SPLITCOAST STAMPERS and follow the directions from there until I am able to post some. I will try to do directions and pictures later, as I found these a little confusing at one point, but I was able to figure it out. The mats are labeled for reference. I have a play date with LGuild tomorrow so not sure if I will get to the directions then or not. She is coming to my house to try out stamping. But we are going to hit the LSS first, OF COURSE!! I mean after all paper is on sale.......and we NEVER have enough paper do we?? *just agree with okie here please*.

We are at sea today and there are some great Cricut classes scheduled. At least they are telling me they will be great, and hopefully I won't over sleep and miss the classes!


  1. This is cute, but looks really hard to do. I also have no idea what a cut file is. I have figured out it something that must be downloaded but, not sure how or were. Could I get a little more info on this. I new to some of this papercrafting stuff. I love to check out your blog not only are you creative and talented you give quite a funny read to your blogs.... Thanks

  2. Hi Okie,
    Don't know if you are keeping up with the blog while you're away, just hopped over to say hope you are having a fabulous time. I'm not at all jealous, not one bit, nah, who wants to be all at sea having fabulous meals, lots of sunshine, nah, not at all jealous
    En xx

  3. OMG!!! I thought that I was the only person in the World that has to live with my breaker tripping if more than one appliance on. I also can not use my microwave, blow dryer, washer, dryer, dishwasher at the same time. No 2 of these can be running together. I HATE it and it is one of the thing you don't know about until you have signed on the dotted line of a 30yr mtg. I have been afraid to call anyone b/c I don't have a clue "roughly" how much it will run me to upgrade. If you don't mind me asking...can you give me a ball park figure I can put in my head to start saving for? Thanks so much and I hope you have a great time on your cruise.

  4. I hope you are having a great time. I really like the push pull card, I am definitely going to try one one of these days.

  5. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Hands Cricut Freebies Search List, under the Elements post on Mar. 02, 2011. Thanks again.
