Hello Newsletter Subscribers,

I have a request:

 What kinds of files do you want?  Please list what files you need in the Yahoo Group.  I have only heard from a few people as to what they are interested in for future files.  Most of those files were included this week. I don’t think that I heard from you though!   Either post to the Yahoo Group or to with FILE IDEA listed in the subject area whatever types of files you are looking for.

I decided to try something new this week.  I added a new category:  Rhinestones.  You can download the rhinestone patterns and then place iron-on rhinestones onto your T-shirts, etc.  To learn how to do this, go to the Pazzles website and watch the Rhinestone video.  They have a kit that you can purchase.  You don’t need to have a Pazzles machine if you are using the rhinestone patterns.  Check out this video:

The files were miscellaneous this week.    If your interests are not being represented, then write to me at and voice your opinion.

 Videos:  I am not sure if this will help those of you working with programs other than the Pazzles Inspiration Studio Program, but this week, I posted how to use the clip art on the Internet to make your own Paper Dolls.  They would make nice Valentine’s Day Gifts.  You can subscribe for my video tutorials at

If  you have prayer requests, please send them to this address: 

In the subject area, type PRAYER REQUEST.  Do not send last names.  Only first names and brief descriptions of the situation.  God knows what is going on! :-)  I will add them to my prayer list!  I also ask that if the prayer is answered that you let me know so that we can give Him Praise!

ORDERS for WPC , PDF, SVG, and MTC files:  This feature is for those of you who need a special file.  I charge for these kinds of files.  The price would be determined by the complexity of the file. 

Also, from here on in, I am listing all free files as pdf and wpc.  If you want a svg or mtc, let me know....but I will be charging $1/file.  Most programs accept pdfs.  If I list all file formats on my website, it takes way too long and takes away from the quantity and quality of the designs that I want to post in the future.  This will encourage you to learn how to import pdf if you don't already know how.  One person said that she didn't know how to use pdf for svg.....well....I made a tutorial on how to do this and it is listed on the site under VIDEOS.

Videos:  I have been making videos throughout the week.  I have not had the chance to post them to the website yet though.  You can see them if you search OPAL777 on You Tube though. 

Gallery:  nothing new this week

I would like to see some of your work that you have made using the files listed in the IzzaBoutChu! Site.  Please share!

Some of you shared your photos at the Izzaboutchu! Yahoo Group site!  It warmed my heart!  Thank you for sharing your projects!  Please continue to do so. 

These are the FREE files that I added for this week:

If you have any ideas for files, please let me know!  I love to design and your suggestions let me know that I am not doing this in vain.  If you have an idea, just send an email with IDEA in the subject area.
Please send ALL correspondence to the  email address.  My Opal777 email address is a personal one.  I have an elderly mother who ails from time to time...and I need that one kept open for personal communication.  Thank you for understanding in advance.  :-)

HAPPY SCRAPPING!!  See you next week!
