Converting a Silhouette File to use in the Cricut Explore Software - Tutorial Tuesday

Welcome back to my blog!

This blog post is going to be quite different than others I have posted in the past. I have received this question so many times since I started my blog. That question or statement goes along the lines of this, "I have a Cricut Cutting Machine. I love this printable and I am wondering if there is any way I can use this printable in my Cricut software and have my Cricut cut it for me?" And my response has always been, "I am not familiar with the Cricut Explore Software. In short, the answer is no, but I can't help you figure it out either. Sorry..."

Well my Planner Friends, I now have the answer for you! A while back, a Youtuber named Moe Howard emailed me asking if she could use my Birthday Balloons Printable in an upcoming video showing her viewers How to Create a Blackout File in Silhouette Studio to Cut PDF Printables with Cricut Explore. And I was seriously over the moon and overjoyed and immediately said yes! I told her that I had received this question a lot and would be honored if she used one of my printables in her video.

Her Youtube Channel is seriously awesome! If you want to learn how to use your Silhouette Software, Cricut Explore Software, Inkscape, and see tons of planner reviews, Plan With Me's, and all things planner related, you need to click HERE and go and check her channel out and tell her I sent you. :) Also, you can follow her blog and her Facebook Page HERE.

Here is the Thumbnail of the video, so you know what to look for:

So if you have a Cricut and have always wanted to know how to convert Silhouette Files to Explore Files, this video was made for you! She is very well spoken and doesn't talk so fast that your head spins and you can't keep up and you are left confused and frustrated.

Last week a follower emailed me a link showing that someone is printing and selling my printables in her shop and I went to the link and was shocked! I guess I knew it would happen eventually, but here's the thing, she has taken so many other fellow Planner Printable Designers hard work as well, and is using it for personal gain and that is just not cool!

  1. Hello... first i want to thank you for all thr free printables all your stickers are awesome ... i literally ptrinted almost everything... i haven't even use a lot of it... but i love your work so much... so thank you for that... i just wanna suggest if you can make stickers for pets... like dog's vet appt... or dog showered... or dog heartguard ... something like that :) just a thought ... would be awesome to have it... thank you

    1. So ironic that you ask me for pet sticker. My sister asked me for pet stickers yesterday! I am working on a whole sheet of small and medium sized paw prints. But adding heart guard, vet, bath, shower, maybe buy food, groomers in cut Script would be nice too. That way you can put it next to the paw and not have to write it while still being able to customize them to color coordinate with your weekly theme. What other suggestions do you have for the wording of things to remember? I don't own a dog and we just have a house cat for a pet.

    2. Hi, that's suh a good idea. I'm a dog lover and we have 2 dog's and I'll greatly put those stickers to use. The things I need to remember is Vet appt., bath, buy dog food, groomers appt., clip nails, dog park or play date (my dog loves to play with his cousin's). I hope that helps. Oh and I just love your stuff thank you and God bless you for making them into cut files. Lol!
