A Must have for cricut users! Make-the Cut
Make the cut, a new software program similar to Sure Cuts a lot is now available and, from this scrappers humble opinion, it's better! What is the difference you ask, well Make the cut, combines the raster tracing power from inkscape or other software and the cutting power of sure cuts a lot also known as SCAL, and the Cricut design Studio and puts them together into one, very simple to use software program!
Take a look at the software features:
* WYSIWYG Interface [image]
* Works with the Cricut™ Expression™, Create™ and Personal™
* Automated Cricut™ Driver Installation [image]
* Preview/Use Any SVG [image]
* Integrated SVG Gallery (Coming Soon!)
* Shadowing (Coming Soon!)
* Work on Multiple Projects at a Time
* Choose From 3 Standard Mat Sizes [image]
* Use Any Installed Font or Import TTF Files [image]
* Convert Raster Images to SVG Format [example]
* Break/Split/Layer Shapes and Edit Them [image]
* Weld/Join Shapes Together [image]
* Export Shapes to SVG Format or Personal Library
* Cut, Copy and Paste Shapes Between Projects
* And Much, Much More!
What I am really excited about is that you can now cut any true type font and trace any raster image with your cricut using this software.
This software is really easy to use and works super well, there is also a forum for users where you can request future features.
I have always loved sure cuts a lot but, this is way better in my opinion, I tried it last night and I am thrilled with the results. I cant show you what I cut yet, because I am using the layouts for a design team application, but trust me when I say, this is really fabulous software!
You don't have to take my word for it though, you can try it out for yourself here.
If you are ready to purchase it, try it here.

If Santa brought you a Cricut for Christmas, you have got to get this software! Like most other users of SCAL who have recently tried out MTC, I have to say, MTC is superior software and much more user-friendly!
