More and more people are using digital scrapbooking as a means to preserve their photos, family histories and memories. While Cricut and other computerized scrapbooking tools are helpful and offer lovely results, the problem of cost becomes an issue for avid crafters. That’s why finding SVG freebies, graphics, fonts and other resources formatted for use in such machines becomes invaluable.
But there are many places online that offer SVG freebies that you can download directly to your computer and transfer to your equipment. No need to wait for a CD to arrive in the mail or spend a small fortune for new cartridges and designs.
Sonja-BeautifulCreations offers a wide variety of SVG freebies for you to download. Samples include Peter Pan, Wendy and Tinkerbell designs as well as many other possibilities that are perfect for scrapbooking, card making or other crafts. You’ll find butterflies, trains, barrels, storks, trucks, and many other options. Sonja also includes photos of her personal scrapbook pages to give you an idea of the techniques you can use with the graphics.
