Today’s video is for Lisa S who was having some issues with the Round Corner and Fillet Round Corner functions in KNK Studio. Round corner can be a little finicky… the default setting of 0.2 for corner radius is way too high. I recommend immediately resetting that to 0.02. That will give you a lot more control over the look of your rounding. Also, you have to do the outer corners and inner corners separately. Fillet Round Corner is more straight-forward. It appears that it picks up the settings from Round Corner automatically. And you can individually click on inner and outer corners without leaving the window and re-entering.
Here’s the video: Round Corner and Fillet Round Corner
Also, I covered Fillet Round Corner in a previous post here for those who missed it. In this video I show how to design a file folder shape using this handy function: Designing a File Folder
As always, post if you have any questions!
Thanks to Margaret and Nancy, members of the Klic-N-Kut Yahoo group for today’s topic. Margaret first needed to know how to get her text into a perfect circle for her scalloped frame. Then Nancy posted and asked to split the text so that half of it wouldn’t be upside down. The above image shows what I teach in today’s video:

Valentine's Cupcake Wrapper by Judy
I’ve had more response to the Cupcake Wrapper post from last fall than any other single post at this site. Thus, I’m sharing some photos and files from a very talented and generous Klic-N-Kut designer, Judy Keating. She started with my original base file and took cupcake-wrapper designing to a whole new level! She’s been creating new files for several months now and sharing them at the various Klic-N-Kut Yahoo groups I own or moderate. The response to these files has been incredible and, as you can see from the photos below, it’s not surprising. These are so adorable and they cut beautifully on both the original Klic-N-Kut die cutters and also on the newer KNK Maxx, Groove, and Groove-E machines. Judy also has given me permisson to share the .knk files here for those of you who would like to download them and cut your own from Klic-N-Kut Studio.
Thanks so VERY much, Judy, for the time and effort you put into these designs. We eagerly look forward to each new release and I promise the readers of this site to share them again, when Judy has new ones available.
Currently, the cupcake wrapper files can be downloaded from links at this newer post:Judy’s Cupcake Wrappers in Other Formats
Note that Judy designs them for both full sized cupcakes and mini cupcakes.

At the request of members at the Klic-N-Studio GE Yahoo group, I created a video to show you how to temporarily install a font in Windows (using either My Computer or the popular Font Thing utility program). I also then show how to get these temporary fonts into KNK Studio. Please post if you have any questions!

Also, if you are interested in learning more about the terrific features in The Font Thing, I sell a downloadable video which covers what you need to know to get the most out of this terrific little utility:
