Crafty Designs - Inkscape for Crafting
Did you buy an SVG somewhere of Minnie and it came in one combined graphic and all you want to do is just separate out her bow and make it using a different colored vinyl?
Or maybe you bought a rustic farmhouse sign SVG and there are a gazillion little scraps in the file?
Or you just spent an hour making your own design in Cricut Design Space and want to share it with your friend but can't seem to export it out of the program?
Yup, we've all been there.
I used to hack my way around Cricut Design Space trying to use their limited editing capabilities.
It just seemed so daunting to learn how to use some of these graphics editing software programs and they are so expensive!
So then I discovered Inkscape - a free graphics editing software that you can download to make and edit your own SVGs.
Naturally, I searched online to do every little function but all the tutorials were geared towards graphic designers trying to make all these elaborate images for book covers and flyers.
I just wanted to add a few tweaks to Minnie...and maybe design my own flower template...and create my own knockout sign...and basically have the freedom to design anything I see on Pinterest.
Wouldn't it be nice to NOT have to keep buying those SVG bundles and end up not getting exactly what you want anyway?
That is exactly what I had in mind when creating this Inkscape for Crafting Binder.
This is an image-filled binder with example projects that cover the most popular cutting machine crafts.
Are you tired of watching hours of youtube videos trying to make a basic shape in Inkscape?
My favorite is when I have to rewatch a 30-second snippet over and over again because I can't remember the sequence of clicks I was supposed to do to rotate a line of text.
