While reading ScrapBooking forums and blogs, I came accross the Cricut paper cutting machine. It seems that the Cricut can cut shapes from SVG files, that can be loaded to the Cricut, with a software called Sure Cuts A Lot (or SCAL for short). All of the coloring pages on ScrapColoring are actually drawn in SVG, using Inkscape. I was wondering if they would be suitable for cutting with a Cricut. Or if I could easily change them to make them usable on a Cricut.
If you own a Cricut, could you tell me if the following SVG files I have drawn work on your Cricut ? Your help and comments would be very much appreciated! Unfortunately I do not own a Cricut myself (yet), and thus I cannot test them.
- Happy Holidays SVG file: scrapcoloring.com/images/happy_holidays_christmas_trees.svg (too small font?)
- Giraffes SVG file: scrapcoloring.com/images/girafes.svg (too many lines?)
- Snowflake SVG file: scrapcoloring.com/images/snowflake.svg (only one shape, but thin stems)
- Thicker Snowflake SVG file: scrapcoloring.com/images/snowflake_thick.svg (thicker snowflake, better for cutting?)
- Christmas Tree SVG file: scrapcoloring.com/images/christmas_tree_cricut.svg (only one shape / silhouette outline)
Those SVG files are published under the Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-SA licence (Attribution, Non-Commercial, Share-Alike). Please tell me if you use them! If you do use them to cut paper in a Cricut machine, I would love to see the results! (it's possible to attach a scan or picture to a comment to this post)
Do the files need to contain just one shape outline ? Can shapes overlap or be inside one another ? Any help, pointers and advice gladly welcomed! :-)
