Side NOTE: I do refer to Cricut or Design Space (Cricut’s cutting software) often on my blog. But that’s the cutting machine I have. They work with all types of cutters. I use my graphic design skills to create professional-quality digital files for craft projects. The files we provide are SVGs [scalable vector graphic] and we package them in a .ZIP file for you.
The zipped folder is packaged with file types such as: SVG, PNG, DFX, PDF.
Cricut users like the digital cut files for a cleaner image when it cuts. Our .ZIP packages also include design elements or ideas (like JPGs with finished project images for you). The SVG formats come with personal use and a commercial use license. so you can use them in crafting for business. Larger commercial rights are available by contacting me. See our *Angle Policy for usage rights details.
Some of the free SVG selections you’ll find in my SVG Shop are seasonal, funny, sassy, home decor, sign designs, coffee lover themes, card, and tag ideas and so much more.
If you find an SVG but want to cut it on a different color pattern and see it before you cut the different colors, check out this blog on our Free Winter SVGs where I walk you through a step-by-step tutorial on how to edit the colors on this Free Sweater Weather SVG.
How We Can Make That uses SVG files for Cricut
Like most graphic designers, I have been designing crafting cut files in Adobe Illustrator since the early 1990s. I started creating my own images for paper crafts like scrapbook pages and decor items but now I get to help you craft!
I’d like to invite you to click the browse button (magnifying glass) on the top of my site and search the many files designed to inspire you to create. Personally, I think we have the best free SVG files but I might be a little bias. LOL. If you find inspiration I invite you to make a free account and grab your favorite.
Well, new creative friend, grab a blank canvas in Cricut’s Design Space, and let’s make some Cricut projects!
What sets my DIY website apart from others is we are not just a shop. As a crafter myself I often make projects with the files and hope they inspire you. What good are a billion SVGs on your computer? We need to get crafting. Our shop has a few graphic formats and files to make sure everyone files what they need:
- SVG Bundles

Once you open Cricut Design Space it can give you creators block. That big white blank canvas can be intimidating. The fact that there’s so many options from the paid and free cut files often stops some crafters. That’s why I started blogging. Our blog posts and craft project ideas use our own SVGs and are there to inspire you when you find cute SVG images in our shop and want to craft.
