In this series, Alexis from Persia Lou and I are comparing the Silhouette and the Cricut machines to give you insights into how they work, the design software, and the different materials that they can cut. We're not so much talking about which is better, but the different features and what they can do.

In this video, I talk about the three types of files I recommend using with Cricut Design Space (SVG, JPG, and PNG) and WHAT each one is best for; I walk you through the process of uploading your own images in Cricut Design Space for each . Do you need transfer tape for printable vinyl?
