Today I traced an image of deer, cut it out by hand on black card stock, then scanned it. I opened SCAL and using the trace image feature I was able to create an svg file. Pretty neat! I did the same for the squirrel. I ran a test cut on my cricut...I cut the fawn at 2 1/2" and the doe at 4" and the squirrel at 2".
I am offering these files free to my followers. So if you're interested and are able to use an svg file just send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org I believe I can send it as an attachment. It will show up as an inkscape file. that's the link for the free program.
