My husband-to-be was searching the Provo Craft forums trying to find a way to cut True Type fonts (he knows I want this) with the Cricut and found a tip from one users. Someone wrote a program for the Cricut and is selling itâ€¦ this program is called Sure Cuts A Lot. My fianc© bought it for me and sure enoughâ€¦ it will cut any true type font. However it will not shadow or weld but they programmer said that he is working on it and the upgrade will be available to users who have purchased the program already. Because I like to shadow my die cutsâ€¦ my fianc© found me another program called Inkscape that allows you to make Sure Cuts A Lot files. In this program you can make the shadows for your die cuts.
All of this takes a bit more work that just cutting with the Cricut cartridges but it is worth the effort to be able to use any font you want without having to shell out another $60. Also when using the Sure Cuts A Lot program the Cricut slows down taking longer for each cut. Still Iâ€™m so excited because I made our invitations, and now when I do a invitation page in my scrapbook I will be able to use the same font that I used in our invites as a page topper.
