Let's address the elephant in the room...
Crafters who own cutting machines, such as a Cricut or Silhouette, often believe they have to rely on other creationists and memberships to provide design files for their crafting needs.
But I bet you are now bravely venturing the question...can I design my own SVG files?
And the answer is YES!
Are you tired of...
A SVG cut file is a graphic format that stands for scalable vector graphics. In the world of cutting machine users (like Cricut) they are vital to crafters. In other words, SVG files are the layered images that can be used inside of cut softwares like Design Space. These images are then cut out onto compatible materials that work with cutting machines for you to build your crafts!
Often times, crafters get stuck and don't know how to make their own designs come to life - many do not even know that it is an option!

I have expanded my projects like never before
Jackie says... "This course is great even for total newbies! I was able to draw my first SVG with in a couple of days of watching the first few videos. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to create their own SVG files! It has given me the ability to expand like never before!"
I love her style of teaching
Nathalie says... "I love her style of teaching. Abbi teaches you the basics first but then helps you dive deeper with a lot of hands on projects step by step. And I love that I can watch the videos as many times as I need to practice till perfect."
I now have the skills to create anything I can imagine!
Liz says... "To be completely honest, I was convinced I was not going to be able to design my own SVG files. To my surprise it was way easier then I thought and now I have the skills to create anything I can imagine!"
I Freed the SVG!
Serena says... "Free the SVG is a great course to understand how to design for youself. I watched ever bit of Abbi's videos and they definitely delivered! I've lost count of how many projects I have designed and it's so much fun!"
“If you ever feel you wish you could break outside the cookie-cutter SVG box then FREE the SVG was created just for you! Customizing your creativity is the heart and soul of what crafting is all about."
Hey there! I'm Abbi - they call me the Craft and Cricut Fairy! In the last 9 years I have designed more than 500+ SVG cut files and sold my designs to over 75,000+ happy customers all over the world! I’m addicted to collecting SVG craft files! If you own a cutting machine, like Cricut, I bet you love collecting them for yourself too.
But I used to struggle with SVG files... ...struggle to find exactly what I was envisioning ...struggle to customize my projects with images only personal to me .... struggle with my frustration with paying subscriptions fees for images and still not finding exactly what I wanted every time .... struggle to finish a project because I couldn't create it exactly as I wanted.
I don’t want you to throw away money on SVG files that don't completely fit your unique creative style or feel like your hands are tied with cookie-cutter designs. And I don’t want you to feel overwhelmed and frustrated in the learning process.
That why I made this program, FREE the SVG.
Instead I want you to thank yourself for the decision you made today. Because in as little as 30 days from now you could be doing things you didn’t think are possible at this moment in time!
