SCAL Crazy!!

I've had a new addiction lately and that is seeing what images I can convert to SVG to cut with Sure Cuts A Lot and my cricut. I've had so much fun doing this and had a lot of people asking me how I did it and where I found the images, etc. Well I just did a google search for the type of thing I was looking for ie. flourish and then found the images I wanted. After that I used Inkscape (a free program that Sure Cuts A Lot recommends) and went to town. I had a lot of trial and error and some pictures just don't convert well. Especially the low resolution images you get off the net at times. I really enjoyed doing these and seeing what I could make. I still have a lot more that I haven't cut yet but I thought I'd be sweet and share the ones I have made so far.
If you'd like any of these cuts in these pictures just click on the picture and you will be able to download them yourself. I will be working on some more so hopefully I can have those up soon. Oh and I hear that SVG files are used for the silhouette so if you have that you can use these files too. Oh and I've included pictures of the cuts in the files too so you can see what they are. I only ask one favor if you download - please leave me a comment. I'd love to know who is downloading them. Also, I'd love to see your creations with them as well!

***ETA: some of these cuts are not 'perfect cuts'. They are still really pretty though and look great. However if you're looking for exact then you may not want to download them. I can only make them as good as the picture I can find.
