Where are the instructions for my project?

Check out its PDF Menu and Assembly Tutorial video. Each download comes with a handy PDF Menu guide. This shows diagrams, information and tips. You can print it, or look at it on your device of choice.

Each project has an accompanying Assembly Tutorial video on its page on our site. To find the video for your project, simply visit its page on our site. Scroll down to the Assembly Tutorial video, where you can click on its white title to open it directly on YouTube. From there, it's easier to pause and navigate. Furthermore, in the video's description there, you can jump ahead to your project's portion of the video. To do this, click "Show More" to see the full Description. Then click on the time stamp next to your project's name.

What types of cutting machines are compatible with SVG files?

SVG files can be used with a wide range of cutting machines that support vector-based designs. Some of the most popular cutting machines that are compatible with SVG files include: Cricut Explore and Maker, Silhouette Cameo, Brother ScanNCut, Glowforge, Siser Romeo and Juliet, Pazzles Inspiration Vue, Skycut and Craftwell eCraft.

We've omitted machines from this list that have been discontinued by the manufacturer: Sizzix eClips/eClips2, Janome Artistic Edge, Bosscut Gazelle and Black Cat Cougar/Lynx. We have also omitted machines from this list that are geared toward cutting vinyl (USCutter, Graphtec, Roland, Mimaki, PrismCut, HP, Summa and Vulcan).

Can I use SVG files with my Cricut machine?

To use an SVG file with your Cricut machine (Explore, Maker or Joy), you can open the Cricut Design Space software and click "New Project" to start a new project. You can then click "Upload" to import the SVG file, and adjust the size and position of the design before cutting it out. You must change solid score lines' Linetype to Score and Attach any multi-layer shapes. Upload the project's "entire" file (in its Extras folder) to save time. Learn more in our detailed Cricut FAQ below.

Can I use SVG files with my Silhouette Cameo?

Using SVG files with the Silhouette Studio software requires an upgrade. We recommend the Designer Edition and may offer a store credit to help offset the cost of the upgrade. Just reach out, and we'd be happy to offer more details. To use an SVG file with your Silhouette Cameo, you can open the Silhouette Studio software and select "File" > "Open" to import the SVG file. You can then adjust the size, orientation, and placement of the design before sending it to your cutting machine.

Can I resize a design?

Yes, but there are some factors to consider. When resizing or editing SVG files, it's important to maintain the proportion of a project's shapes in relation to each other. In other words, if you size part of a project to 150%, the rest of its parts need to be sized to 150% as well for them to fit together as intended. You should also be mindful of the level of detail in the design and how it may affect the overall look and cutting quality when scaled up or down. Furthermore, making a project larger can result in some of its parts being too large to fit on your machine's cutting mat.

What kind of paper and glue should I use?

Approximately "80 lb" weight paper is great, but thinner or thicker is perfectly fine. Our favorite solid-color card stock paper is AC (American Crafts) Cardstock. For glue, we like Scotch Tacky Glue best.

How do I determine if a project is available individually?

We do offer quite a few of our projects individually. We are working on making it easier to find them on our site. For now, you can see if a Kit’s projects are available individually by looking on its page just beneath its Dimensions information. If its projects are available individually, they’re listed there as clickable URLs to each project.

Alternatively, you can search our site for a project’s name to see if it’s available individually. For example, you could search for our Baseball Cap project to see that it’s available individually.

I only want one design from a Kit of five. Can I get it individually?

We are working on making all of our designs available individually, but some aren't yet. Please let us know which one you have your eye on and we'll do our best to make it available individually soon.

How do I remove an item from my cart?

We just updated the mobile version of our site, and currently, the “remove” button during Checkout is only visible when your device is oriented horizontally. In other words, you can rotate your phone so that it's "sideways" to see the remove button/s. We hope to have this fixed soon.

Cricut: Can I use my scoring tool with SVGCuts designs?

Yes. Use the file named entire_project.svg in the Extras > Solid Score Lines folder.

Here's a longer explanation. By default, any design we offer uses dashed score lines, which are meant to be cut by a machine's blade. This is because our designs are universal and can be used by a wide and ever-changing variety of cutting machines on the market.

One neat benefit of the current family of Cricut machines (Explore and Maker) is that they can score. Cricut scoring tools such as the stylus and wheel press a firm solid line into paper, making it easy to fold.

Nearly every project on our site comes with optional solid score lines. For any shape that's accompanied by score lines, you'll find an alternative in the project's Solid Score Lines folder, which is in its Extras folder. Simply substitute these alternatives, and to save time, use the "entire" file that's there. Its name will be "entire_project.svg" but instead of the word "project" the word or words of your project's name will be substituted.

The software must be told that the solid score lines are not meant to be cut. Simply select one or more and use the drop-down Linetype menu to change their Linetype to Score.

Cricut: Do I need to re-size anything?

The Cricut Design Space software generally seems to upload/insert our SVG files at the "correct" size. The correct size for each part of a project is shown in its PDF Menu document, which is included in each download we offer. You can certainly double-check sizes for the shapes in the software using the PDF Menu as a guide. We've found that no re-sizing is usually necessary, but it's never a bad idea to take a peek.

Cricut: Why are my score lines on a different mat than my shape?

You need to go back and use the Attach button. It sounds like you're in the "Prepare" portion of Make It. From there, click Cancel. Then, select both a shape AND its score lines and click Attach (bottom right area). When you click Make It, you'll see that the shape and its score lines are together on one mat.

You'll need to do this for any multi-layered element that needs to "stay together." Generally, that would just be a shape and its score lines, although sometimes an additional third layer exists. In that case, simply select all three and click Attach.

Cricut: Do I really have to upload each shape for a project one by one?

No. That's no fun. Instead, use your project's "entire" file. The "entire" file is a single file that contains the entire project. You can find it in the Extras folder. For Cricut Design Space users that are using a scoring tool (stylus or wheel), we recommend using the "entire" file that's in the Extras > Solid Score Lines folder.

Cricut: How do I isolate just one part of a design?

Use the "separated" file in your project's Extras folder. Cricut Design Space doesn't easily let users "break apart" multi-part shapes. But sometimes you need to work with just one small part of a file. If you can't seem to delete shapes without deleting too much, you may need the "separated" file. The "separated" file is in your project's Extras folder. It is named "entire_project_separated.svg." Your project's name will be part of the filename where the word "project" is.

So for the Baseball Cap project, its "separated" file is named "entire_baseball_cap_separated.svg." The "separated" file contains all shapes for your project saved "separately." You can upload/insert it into Cricut Design Space and then delete the parts you don't need.
