The Cricut, Cutting Software Programs and Cut Files

So you wanted to know about using your Cricut with cut files you have found on the internet or on websites that provide cut files that work with their stamps. Well, good news and bad news - good news is yes you can BUT the bad news is that you need special software to do it. Sadly, that software is not available anymore - unless you can find an older version of the software.

Short story is that Provocraft sued both the companies that created & sold the software and they had to make the software not work with the Cricut anymore. So, unless you can find an older version of Make the Cut or Sure Cuts a Lot you won't be able to use cut files with your Cricut.

Details on Sure Cuts a Lot - Version 1 and 2 of Sure Cuts A Lot are compatible with the Cricut Personal, Cricut Expression, Cricut Create and Cricut Cake machines provided you have a compatible fimrware version on the Cricut machine.

Details on Make the Cut - The last version that will work with the Cricut is 3.2.1, BUT it had to be downloaded before March 16.

Suggestion & requests for files always welcome.

See you soon!
