Free-For-All Fridays

Happy Friday!!!  I wanted to start another weekly series, but I haven't decided on a graphic yet, and this is a working title, so bear with me!!  Since I have really started playing with my new Silhouette Cameo, I've noticed that there are TONS of generous paper crafters and companies out there who offer FREE SVG cuts weekly.  I think that is so sweet...and what an awesome way to do business!  Here's a list I've compiled of places that offer truly awesome free files for you to download.  If you decide to go take a peek, then while you're at some of these sites, look around...there is some incredible talent out there!!

Here's a list in no particular order.

FREE SVG FILES:

SVG Cuts offers TONS of free files!  I believe they have said that there are over 200 of them available right now.  Make sure to sign up for their newsletter too.  Every time they send a newsletter, they include a new free file!

Designs on Cloud 9  I won a gift certificate to this company last year, and they have the CUTEST stuff!  They have adorable Teddy bears, and there's a cute bear freebie on their site this week!

Paper Piecings By Nikki has a totally adorable little piggy file this week!

KaDoodle Bug Designs publishes new free files on Mondays and digi files on Tuesdays!

Little Scraps Of Heaven also publishes free SVGs on Mondays and digis on Tuesdays.  You can access their freebies through their blog or their Facebook fan page.

Miss Kate Cuttables actually has a DAILY freebie!

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons offers a new free SVG file each Friday...cute stuff!

Scrappin Bug Designs has a great contest going on right now for a Silhouette Cameo giveaway!  Grab your free SVG files and then go check out their Facebook fan page!

So this is my usual list of weekly haunts!  There are a few other sites I check out from time to time, but these are the companies that I have noticed changing out their freebie files to new ones every single week.

For those of you who don't have a machine or software that cuts SVG files, there's something you might want to keep in mind.  Over a year ago, I knew I REALLY wanted a Silhouette or something similar, so even though I didn't have the machine yet, I started collecting SVG files, because I KNEW that I would have one eventually  and would have a nice collection of files to play with.  So, it's never too early to start looking around and collecting files.  And after all, aren't we all papercrafting "collectors?!"

If you know of any awesome companies I missed that offer free SVG files AT LEAST once a week, I would love to add them to this list!  Also, if there's enough interest, I would be glad to put together a weekly list of free digi files too.  Is that something you would be interested in?  Let me know in your comments!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

What a cool idea... wish I had a Cameo but I don't and unless my Gypsy breaks I won't get one! lol But I love the idea of going somewhere to see what is free and lot of people have Cameos... I say I don't do digi's but when they aren't so vintage I love them! Esp subway art style stuff! Thanks for offering and thanks for whatever you decide to do but I LOVE the working title.. Kathi

Wow, Thanks Amy! I just bought a cameo and I have only used it twice. I had no idea about SVG files. I will start saving too.

Coolmommaweed...if you come back and see this comment, I did a search and couldn't find the site you commented about. Do you have a link or does anybody else have one for it?
