Artfully Sent Explore Design Space Sizing Cheat Sheet - download a FREE copy!

Artfully Sent was designed around the E2 machine and older so for people with those machines - use the sizing as indicated in the handbook.  Cards can be adjusted in size but some of the details in the cuts may lose their sharpness at smaller sizes.  If it looks pretty intricate, cut it at the sizes shown.

For those of us with the new Explore machine, the sizing has to be adjusted to create the size cards we want.  The Explore has such detailed cuts that really you can make your cards at any size so a 5x7" card can easily be changed to a 4.25x5.5".  I've spent several hours putting together a document with the guiding principles for adjusting the sizes of cuts to get any size card as well as specifics for using vertical and horizontal fold cards, envelopes and liners, Pocket Cards and the Sleeve cards.  I love getting feedback on my documents to make them as useful as possible so feel free to drop me a note.

Ladies - Thank you all for your kind words! I'm glad I was able to help out people using the new cartridge with the Explore! There is definitely a learning curve to using the new machine but I am having so much FUN using our CTMH products with a machine that lets me do incredible things with the images!

Thanks again for stopping by and leaving a comment! I'm overwhelmed by the number of downloads from this one file and I sincerely appreciate it when people leave me a thumbs up - its definitely a boost that keeps me going!
