May 2018 – Free Monthly SVG Design Downloads

completed cinco de mayo props download projectWe’re getting an early start on May because we want to give you enough time to make Cinco de Mayo projects (more on those in a minute. Our free May design downloads are really fun this year. Aaron Meyers is our designer and got really creative this month. You can download (1) summer-themed icons file, (1) Mother’s Day-themed print, and (2) Cinco de Mayo-themed party prop files.

That means we had to get creative with our free April 2018 SVG design downloads. Do you remember the dancing hot dog meme that was all the rage for about 4 weeks last year on Snapchat? We thought it would be fun to add that as a layered image to scrapbook layouts, so Aaron made (1) meme icon and (2) graduation cards.

The trick to crafting with these SVG files is you need an electronic cutting machine, like the Cricut Explore Air and Silhouette machines. These sophisticated craft machines do all the work for you. There are 3 quick steps:

  1. Download the file at the bottom of this post,
  2. then upload it to your machine with your colored cardstock,
  3. and watch it do all the cutting.
