Yesterday's Post and Creativity Camp

Greeting from Cullowhee, North Carolina!  (Yes, there is such a place--LOL).  Me and my two boys are here for the week visiting my brother and sister-in-law while the oldest (Reilly) attends Creativity Camp at Western Carolina University.  He was in the Inventor's Club, and this week he decided that he would invent a mechanical spider.  I love that they are letting the kids decide what they will create.  Yesterday they brainstormed ideas, today they researched and tried some ideas out.  

Enough about what is going on in my world....

Yesterday's post featuring Melyssa's projects had a couple of questions in the comments section that I thought I would address...

1.  What is an SVG file?
SVG files are "Scalable Vector Graphics" (a relatively new file type) for storing vector graphics, which can be used to store illustrations among other things.  It is also the type of file easiest to import into your SCAL software.

2.  What is SCAL software?
(I took this definition from the Craft Edge website).
SCAL or"Sure Cuts A Lot" is an easy to use software to cut your True Type fonts, SVG files, images, and various shapes with various electronic cutting machines, including Craftwell eCraft™, Black Cat Cougar/Lynx™, Boss Kut Gazelle™, Pazzles Inspiration™, Silhouette SD™, USCutter™. Available for Windows and Macintosh. 

3.  Where is that adorable sailboat in Melyssa's baby card? 
The sailboat is in our Baby Joy rubber stamp set:

Have a great Tuesday y'all!  I'm off to film a music video.....
