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 what if you didn't have to rely on others?! What if you could learn the freedom of designing for yourself? You have your OWN ideas and visions that you want to bring to life - take control!
When I got my cutting machine (a Cricut), I learned about needing the SVG format for my crafts. I ventured to ask how hard is it to make my own SVG cut files? Of course, I started researching and fell into the endless pit of YouTube videos (cue Beethoven's 5th dramatic music).
Sure, YouTube has its purpose but trying to learn a skill like SVG creation can be overwhelming when you have to weed through the videos yourself. And then there is the struggle to find the best videos to learn the basics before the hard stuff or finding support when you crash into a question or confusion roadblock.
Here's where I got stuck with YouTube:
Do you struggle to find exactly what you envision and customize projects with images personal to you?
Are you frustrated with paying subscription fees for images and still not finding exactly what you wanted every time?
Trying to finish a project but give up because you couldn't create it exactly as you wanted?
I was determined to make my own SVG files not just for my enjoyment but also because I wanted (actually needed) to make money at what I designed (I got started because I needed to make money for my family during a time when we had no income).
Once I learned to work from the beginner steps, learned the Inkscape tools, and work my way up to project designs and image conversions, I was unstoppable. In fact, I haven't paid for an SVG file in years!
Collectively my SVG designs have been downloaded over 1 MILLION times and I have built an entire business around sharing and selling SVGs!
I'll be honest; I took the long way around. I made lots of mistakes and became very frustrated during the process. The great news is YOU DON'T HAVE TO! I've built this course for someone just like I was way back when, to cut through the red tape and the endless YouTube searches, so you can jump right into creating SVG files!
#1. You're missing out on personalization
You don't know how to customize a project with images that are special to you - family photos, favorite characters, etc.
#2. You're wasting time and money
You're stuck paying for every single SVG file or paying monthly subscriptions.
#3. You lose out on time you should be crafting
Finding your SVG files by other designers (especially free ones) is a time suck and you wish you could just create them for yourself.
