Updates

Hi friends, we had an unplanned water leak that up ended our whole summer. It wasn't the leak - it was having to clean the basement that was the hassle. It was very much overdue! Stay tuned to new creations in the future and thank for your support.
The 2019 mini calendar update is here! Everyone's favourite mini calendar is back! Digital download in two sizes. Custom orders available on request.
Today I'm drawing cats and dogs and trying not to make them look like little horses! Come see me at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo at the end of April!

About

Helping others make it special with art, cards and SVG cutting files

Once upon a time, my mother asked me to make up some cards for her Christmas craft sale table. I made $12 with just three photos. That was in 2004 and enough to encourage me to grow my collection year after year. I now have over 150 animal, flower and fantasy photos and illustrations on cards and magnets at in-person sales. I enjoy meeting my customers offline and sharing with them the special story of the picture that catches their eye. My camera and I are really good friends!

Besides photography, I specialize in scherenschnitte, or papercutting. Each papercut starts with a drawing on the back that is destroyed as I cut the picture up. The result is an effortless looking silhouette. My three layer papercut, Three by Three, won second place in its section and first in its class at the 2015 Calgary Stampede Western Lifestyles Arts & Crafts Showcase. Papercutting offers me a great deal of artistic freedom. I reproduce select designs on cards with a digital die cutting machine.

My Etsy shop doesn't represent all that I make and sell - I currently reserve it for digital downloads, design files and fine art. Feel free to request a custom order or convo to see more of my catalogue. I began selling digital files in 2015 after discovering that customers often wanted something right away and three weeks wait on international mail was a huge ask.

Purple Pony Art has been registered as a trade name and business in Calgary, Alberta, Canada since 2006 and holds a Calgary business license. I love Calgary and tirelessly promote it and all the great things going on here on Twitter. I also maintain http://www.CalgaryCraftSales.com because connecting others with the information they need is what I do best!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am always happy to consider personalized and custom orders. Please convo me to further discuss.

What are digital downloads?

Digital downloads, or instant downloads, are files that are immediately available for you to download after purchase is confirmed. There is no physical item - you may get a zip, PDF or JPG.

If you have a problem with one of my digital downloads, I would be happy to provide support or another format. Just convo me!

Do you offer technical support for your digital downloads?

The short answer is - yes! I am very committed to helping you with the files I have created, whether it means troubleshooting a problem or providing another file format. Please convo me if you have a problem.

Will your files work with Cricut Air / Cricut Design Space?

I am in the process of testing my older files with Cricut Design Space as I am a Pazzles owner. Yes, the files will work with Cricut Design Space, but there might be some issues. Some things I have learned about Cricut Design Space are:

• there may be times when it is down, slow or images can't be uploaded

• images will import larger than the design space, so you must select all and scale down using the zoom tools

• "black blob" problems and grouped layers may cause issues

If you have a problem with an SVG file with Cricut Design Space, please let me know so I can try an alternate format. If a quirk is discovered it will be noted in the listing.
