The abbreviation SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic. Basically its a type of image file. Behind the scenes, your Cricut machine uses a SVG file as a set of instructions to tell it where to make the actual cuts. Think of an SVG file as a template instead of a picture. Our above video demonstrates this with a puzzle template . Check our library often to find new svg files including a puzzle template which is coming soon.

Fun Greetings from Chris Moose

Inquiring minds want to know what Chris has to say. Don’t you?

Chris Moose wishes you a Merry Christmas in his very own special way with these two holiday greeting cards. The overall card design is the same for both cards however the change in the sentiments makes them quite different. The first card is designed to warm the heart of the recipient. A change of the eyes gives a more fun appeal as Chris peers out to make sure no one catches him peeking. See what he has to say when he catches you!

Two Chris Moose designs are available in our Library in both svg and pdf file formats.
