More and more I am receiving request for files in SCUT or svg, since many of you have purchased the software SURE CUTS A LOT . Which, if you don't know is an easy software program that allows you to bring in TRUE FONTS from your computer AND professionally designed files. That means the potential use of your Cricut is endless. You can click on the link to read up all about the software program or download the trial. If you download the file you will not be able to cut until you purchase the software but you can see for yourself how well it works by trying it out.
Are you excited? Well it gets better then that! You can download the latest INKSCAPE
software and open .ai files. That's right! Professionally created die-cuts for your machine.
