My Interest is Peaked

Have you guys heard about this new program that works with your Cricut? I've not got it yet but I'm very interested. Click HERE for some more information or click HERE and then click on MAKE THE CUT to check it out. Oh and before I forget, here's a 10% off coupon on top of the already 40% off promotion if you are interested! FRUM-7C6P

Download the trial version and try it yourself by clicking HERE or purchase by clicking HERE.

The Make-The-Cut program is possibly a bit more user friendly than SCAL for those that want to use an image on their Cricut that is not already in the right format (SVG). This makes it easier to turn your school or business logos etc into an image that is quickly and easily cut on the Cricut. To do the same thing with SCAL you would have to import the image into Inkscape and convert it into an SVG image before you could load it into SCAL and cut it. This seems to me the main advantage to Make-the-Cut.

Imagine It. Create It. Cut It. It's That Simple. Make The Cut! allows you to easily cut virtually any shape you can imagine including TrueType Fonts using your Cricut™ machine without needing to purchase expensive cartridges. With its easy-to-learn interface, the possibilities are endless. Go unleash the true power of your Cricut™!

  1. Just curious...what makes this software different from Craft Edge's Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL)???

  2. Tina, what caught my attention is that you can break apart shapes without having to export to Inkscape. Inkscape was just over my head! lol

  3. I wonder if it's going to be user friendly. SCAL2 is so easy and I've never had any problems with it. I think I'll wait till they get all the "bugs" (not crickets) out of it..LOL..
    I would like to see a video of how they use it..
    thank you for keeping us informed.

  4. Hmm, I wonder if there is a yahoo support group for it?

    I know most people use SCAL. This is my first time hearing about it.

  5. Personally I am looking for the free trial. (That would tell alot.)

  6. Oooo... I'll be interested to see what people think of this program as compared to SCAL. I recently got an intel-based MacBook. Now that I can run Windows and MacOS, I am looking to purchase one of these programs.

  7. Great, I just got SCAL and am having a devil of a time with inkskape too. I wonder if Todd will address this issue.

  8. Well I have SCAL2 but I tried the free download and I love it. It is so much easier than SCAL2 you don't need inkscape at all. The software is very user friendly. I will be buying this. I love it.

  9. Linda,

    Have you had the opportunity to play with this?? Your thoughts?
