I have been using my Cricut Expression to make stencils from vinyl almost from the time I first got it. When I stopped working for Robert’s Craft, one of the first things I did was buy a copy of “Sure Cuts A Lot” by Craft Edge. This program allows you to use your Cricut (or other personal electronic cutter) to cut the fonts on your computer and internet available graphics; I bought the updated version a couple of years later. I was excited because I no longer needed to buy the cartridges sold by Provo Craft to be creative with my Cricut. Only one problem, if you don’t already own it, you can’t get it for your Cricut, because Craft Edge lost the lawsuit to Provo Craft and they can’t sell it to you. They do, however, have versions for almost all other personal electronic cutters out there. So this Instructable is on how I used the SCAL2 (Sure Cuts A Lot 2) program to cut stencils to for personalization of some hot drink mugs, to be used as gifts.
