Question Wow, did everyone come from Cricut

Wow, I just found this forum and there are so many people here. I don't know about everyone else but I gave up on the the cricut messageboards about 4-5 months ago when they started getting slow. There is nobody left there. Also they shun upon anything with a svg and all my projects have at least one.

I am so glad to be here and hope to find some inspiration. I share free svgs on my website, along with some projects I have made. I really need to get caught up on scrapbooking. Are there any weekly sketches posted around here to participate in??

Hi and welcome from New Zealand. I hope you get a quicker response here! There are certainly lots of 'avenues' of interest in this forum - something for everyone, so I am sure fellow Cricut enthusiasts will find you.

Hi I just found this MB after being on the Cricut MB for a year. I am still trying to find my way around but it looks awesome! Hope to make lots of new friends and share the fun of creating.

Hi! I am a m a j o r lurker to this board, but have been on the cricut board for a year. It IS slow. It also tends to get a bit negative at times (perhaps the fact that it upholds the products of a single company causes such friction). Welcome to the best online resource for Stampers et. al. !

I am so glad you asked as I wanted to know as well but was a bit embarrased to ask!

I am glad you asked also. If you have a Cricut, then Make the Cut or Sure cuts a lot is the best program for you. Svg's are any images broken apart into pieces for you to cut with your cricut. I use Sure Cuts A Lot and I know I will never buy a Font cartridge again. You can use it to cut any font on your computer and 1000s more fonts that you can download off the internet. Anything I want to cut from my cricut, I can find a svg for and if not I make it.

You can download a trial version of sure cuts a lot on the craft edge website.I would download some svgs and watch some youtube videos on how to use the program. All the images I share on my site are free and I have some great links to lots of other sites too. If you have any other questions I would be happy to help you and I can make you any svg you need.
