Cribgate LOL

You're probably only visiting here to see what all the woo ha is about on the Cricut MB and BBTB.


Well to cut a long story short i have been falsely accused of 'stealing' someone else's cut file to make my crib. I only found this out myself, because someone left and anom comment on BBTB.


I don't know why i feel i have to do this on MY blog, but this has really upset me, and even more the fact that no-one has even bothered to contact me to ask about it. My file is nothing like Okie's file and assembles in a totally different way. I had never seen her's before today, and believe mine is totally different.


Here is how my cot, (that's what we call them in the UK) assembles. Note: This is the second one i made, so the decoration is slightly different, and i have folded the bottom up instead of down. When folded down it will fit into a DL envelope.




My cut file can be found here,

Note there is another cot file on there too, but have i accused the creator of stealing my design?, no i haven't, and don't believe they have.

You are truly amazing! I for one looked at both since I'm so nosey and I just happened by chance to stumble on your blog today, and If I was a judge I would say you in no way copied. Your work is outstanding. Happy belated birthday!!!!!

Well I have to say, they are completely different, the rails on the side are wider, the completion is different, the set up is different, no need to justify yourself! And even had you used an ounce of what she did, she posted it herself on her blog.."Hope you guys enjoy this file! And by golly someone better use this one! *LOL* If you do use it for an invitation please send me a picture to post! I love posting what people do with my files!" So she wasn't hoarding the idea to herself...
Way to go! I love the crib card and all your designs are so creative and beautiful. don't get yourself down over an angry ANONYMOUS commenter...

Isn't it amazing what people will post when their identity is unknown? It is obvious you cot is different. Just remember what my mama always said, "A large group of women is a fight waiting to happen." Chin up. You are an amazing designer

OMG, I am so sorry that someone has taken upon themselves to ruin your happiness in this way.

Some people are downright nasty and jealous.

Your cot is totally GORGEOUS and you so deserve to win.

As MY mum always says "don't let the buggers get you down" pmsl! :)

Hi Tracy, You totally deserved to win. In fact all your creations are beautiful.I even noticed that you had put your template in the CDS share blog so thank you. I was unaware that there was such a site so I was able to send them one of my files & must admit downloaded a few others including yours ha! Forget what ANON posted (she wouldn't even identify herself!!!!) Enjoy your prize & put it right out of your head. Happy Scrappin'. JC.
