If you are new to owning a Cricut or Silhouette vinyl cutting machine, it can be overwhelming. Where do you get started? How do you make your first project?

The quickest way to start working on your first project is to use a pre-made design. Today, I've teamed up with Kelsey at Poofy Cheeks Blog to show you how to download and use one of her many FREE cut files. This process would be the same if you are purchasing SVG files on Etsy or in my SVG shop.

I have the Cricut Maker and use Design Space to cut vinyl for all of my screen printing projects (and occasionally other projects too!)  Since I know many of you are Silhouette owners, Kelsey at Poofy Cheeks Blog is going to walk you through the process using Silhouette Studio.

If you have a Cricut Maker or Cricut Air 2, I highly recommend subscribing to Cricut Access.  With Cricut Access, you can use thousands of ready-made designs (skipping the import step mentioned in my video).  I find images in the library all the time!  Here are some of the projects I have made with designs from Cricut Access: Turkey Banner, Thanksgiving Table Runner, and Trick or Treat Bags
