SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic. (Also known as a digital cut file.) SVGs are most commonly used with the Cricut and Silhouette cutting machines. This site will use Cricut and Design Space for it's Tutorials. These files can be uploaded into the design software that comes with either machine and are used to cut out designs on various mediums such as paper, cardstock, vinyl, foam board, material and more. What’s great about SVGs is that you can size them up or down and not compromise the integrity of the graphic. In contrast to being designed in pixels, like a JPG or PNG, it is created using lines and points. The blade of a cutting machine works by cutting lines and turns at the points. That is why SVGs work perfectly with the cutting machines.

No Cutting Machine ? PDF Files and a scissors will work for some of our projects.

If you'd like to see the daily updates, see what we are working on or just get to know us FOLLOW US on Facebook.

Welcome to Our NEW Crafty Fun Cuts Pages

We've moved things around again and added more pages. We've broken the pages down by the Base Materials

  • Vinyl - If your a beginner this is where you want to start.

  • Cardstock - This is where you want to practice

  • Other Materials - This is where you want to play

The new pages will help us organize the site better. It gives us room for more tutorials and projects. There are so many projects in the works we can't wait to show you

Obviously the SVGs will work on any machine. We use the Cricut Maker and Design Space for the Tutorials, some of it will apply in other cutting machines but unfortunately some won't.

Don't Be Afraid To Try

We've tried to break things down Step by Step. Projects are easier when you tackle them one step at a time. AND I will be here to help you along, look for me on the various pages for tips and options to make things easier. But mostly .....

HAVE FUN !!!!

Our Pages

Our goal is to give you the clearest, most comprehensive instructions we can. We want to show you not only how to create the crafts we feature but to give you options so you can make them yours. This entire site is targeted for the beginners, with enough things to keep the pros coming back too. We offer tips and ideas for both. So OPEN that Cricut Box !!!  It's not doing you any good in the closet. You will soon be wondering why you didn't do it sooner !!! 

Because my server will not let me share SVG files or any picture file directly, I had to zip them. Click on any file you want throughout the site and the zip file will automatically download. You need to unzip it, to access the files.

Usually the SVG will not show a thumbnail pic like a JPG or PNG file, it shows up as a Webpage when you store it

The clipart I have used, I found Online, some from royalty free sites, some are on several different sites where no one is credited and I am assuming are public domain.

Permanent Adhesive Vinyl
 

There are some who will only use the Cricut Vinyl and that is fine but a little pricey for me. My preferred brand is the SGHUO. Yea I know name looks questionable but it's good stuff I've never had a problem with it and I'm a Newbie !! You can get it through Amazon 

 Dollar Tree also carries vinyl, however it varies in thickness, for the thinner vinyl and more intricate projects set your Cricut Base Material to Washi Sheet.

Transfer Tape/Adhesive




 

Basically clear contact paper or shelf liner. Again Cricut makes their own, we really like the Duck EasyLiner Adhesive (Amazon link provided) affordable, easy to work with. Some people also use Clear Contact Paper you can get at Dollar Tree

Weeding Tool

Removing the unwanted vinyl in your project is called Weeding. You will need a weeding Tool for this. One probably came with your Cricut or you can get them at DT. (It's the plastic thing shaped like a pen with a sharp point on the end)

20220207_104922.jpg

A pair of tweezers will also help to weed your project. We prefer the Reverse Tweezers (Amazon Link Provided) the grabber part is longer which makes them easier to use

This is the scoring stylist we use. Good Deal on Amazon and worth the purchase to get folded lines straight

Scrapers are used to help adhere the vinyl to the mat and to help remove the adhesive tape from your project. You can get them at Dollar Tree or just use the edge a credit card.

A Scraper or a Credit Card

Brayer Roller

Scoring Stylist

Paid Link

This is used to secure whatever medium you are using to the mat. It helps eliminate air pockets.

Adhere your transfer tape to the mat with the backing side up. Peel away the backing and stick your material base to the sticky side to help save your mats. Works well with felt. (Felt is MESSY)

A credit card can be used to scrape materials off your mat. Or use a lint roller.

Tips:

  • If your not sure if your cut went all the way through DON'T unload the mat from the Cricut, hit the C Button again and recut

  • Turn the mat upside down and remove IT from your paper and sticker projects

  • Keep your mat clean, run it under luke warm water and air dry or use unscented baby wipes.

  • Poke your blades into a ball of aluminum foil. This  doesn't actually sharpen them as many say, it does remove all the residue. So you will have a better cut
