I AM FREAKIN MERRY FREE SVG
I Am Freakin Merry is our feature SVG for the day.
As much as this season brings joy for most, I’m sure we all have at least one Scrooge-like character in our lives. This sarcastic, funny holiday cut file is perfect for that certain someone.
If you’re using this FREE funny holiday cut file on fabric crafts like shirts and tote bags, consider sublimation to take advantage of the color combination that I’ve chosen.
For sublimation you will want to use the PNG file that comes with your download. Note: colors on your screen might vary from the printed version.
FREE COMMERCIAL USE FONTS
When creating new designs I always make sure to use fonts that come with a commercial use license. This allows me to sell my designs if I choose to.
My favorite sites to download fonts are Creative Fabrica and FontBundles.net. They offer thousands of fonts and an awesome assortment of FREE FONTS that come with a commercial use license.
As I mentioned earlier, this funny Christmas svg file is one of many NEW holiday digital designs coming your way.
CHRISTMAS SILHOUETTE CRAFT IDEAS
If you would like to make a shirt with this free I AM FREAKIN’ MERRY design, I share step-by-step instructions in this post. I go over how to use your Silhouette Studio software to get your SVG ready for cutting including mirroring the image and cut settings.
The neat thing about this design is that you get TWO designs for one. They are very similar as you can see but one has a little something extra.
IMPORTANT DOWNLOAD AND FILE INFORMATION
This I Am Freakin Merry” download comes with an SVG and a transparent PNG. The SVG is on a 12×12 artboard but you can size it up or down to your liking in Silhouette Studio or Cricut Design Space. The PNG is 300 dpi which is perfect for printing if you don’t have an electronic cutting machine.
NOTE: If you have Silhouette Studio basic edition, you will need a DXF file. This file will only be provided upon request.
IMPORTANT: To get access to these FREE designs, you will need to complete the checkout process in our shop. Your files will be in a zipped folder that you’ll need to extract. It is strongly recommended that you download your files from a laptop or desktop computer.
WHAT CAN I MAKE WITH AN SVG?
There are so many ways that SVGs can be used but let’s talk about how a crafter like yourself can use them. Here are some of my favorite project ideas for using cut files.
Wood Signs and Door Hangers: To make signs you will need a wood craft blank, vinyl, transfer tape, weeding tools, paint, cutting mat and your Silhouette or Cricut machine.
Tumblers and Water Bottle Decals: If you want to add this design to a tumbler or water bottle you will need a drink blank which you can pick up at Target, Michaels, etc. and the same items from the wood sign.
Tote Bags: We’re living in a time where reusable bags and totes are a must have when going shopping. To make a tote bag, you will need a blank tote bag (the canvas ones from Michaels or Hobby Lobby would be perfect), HTV (heat transfer vinyl), heat press or home iron, weeding tools, cutting mat and of course your Silhouette or Cricut.
Shirts, Hoodies and Hats: Using these SVGs on fabric is one of the most popular ways to use it. To make a shirt, hoodie or tote bag you’ll need HTV (heat transfer vinyl), heat press or home iron, weeding tools, cutting mat and of course your Silhouette or Cricut.
I share step-by-step instructions in this post. I go over how to use your Silhouette Studio software to get your SVG ready for cutting including mirroring the image and cut settings.
Sublimation: If you have a sublimation printer, use the PNG file along with the craft blank of your choice and get creative. Note: colors on your screen might vary from the printed version.
Stickers: I love stickers and they are easier to make than you think. To make stickers you will need to use the PNG file sized way down, full sheet labels, cutting mat and your machine.
