Q: What is the Christmas Craft Countdown? A: The Christmas Craft Countdown is my yearly craft challenge where I share Christmas themed craft projects for a set number of days. After signing up for free, you'll be emailed the projects each day for 20 days starting on 11th November.
Each day's project consists of a full written tutorial (with screenshots), a step-by-step video and at least one SVG cut file. Cut files are available to download for free for 24 hours after that day's project goes live.
If you'd rather get started straight away, check out the optional Instant Access Bundle which gives immediate and ongoing access to all projects and cut files, plus other bonuses such as printable PDF worksheets for every project. You will be shown more information about this after signing up to the free version of the Countdown or click here to find out more.
Q: How much does the Christmas Craft Countdown cost? A: It's free! Simply sign up with your email address and you will be emailed a new craft project every day for 20 days, starting on 11th November 2023. Each project will be available to download for free for 24 hours after its launch.
After signing up for the free version of the Christmas Craft Countdown, you will be shown details about the "Instant Access Bundle" which is an optional paid add-on which gives you instant access to all 20 projects, including the cut files.
If you decide to purchase the Instant Access Bundle, you don't need to wait until 11th November - all projects will automatically become available to you straight away, so you can begin your Christmas crafting now!
Best of all, with the Instant Access Bundle, the SVG cut files do NOT expire, so you can download them as many times as you want, whenever you want.
Q: Can you show me the craft projects? A. Sorry, the projects are a surprise until their release day! However, if you purchase the Instant Access Bundle then you get immediate access to all projects, straight away. No waiting for you - woohoo! 🥳
Q: What happens after I sign up? A: After signing up to the Christmas Craft Countdown you'll receive an email with more information, including an (optional) invitation to join my Facebook group where you can craft along with other members throughout the Countdown and take part in additional challenges and giveaways.
Then, starting on November 11th you'll get an email each day with links to that day's project. Don't forget to click the links to find each day's download before they
expire - you can't complete the projects without them!
Q: How long will I have access to the projects? A: Each day's cut file/download will be available to download for free for 24 hours after it launches. After that time, it will no longer be available to download for free. Once saved to your computer, the files do not expire.
Q: Do the tutorials and videos expire after 24 hours? A: No, it is only the cut files/downloads that expire after 24 hours. The written and video tutorials will remain available indefinitely. HOWEVER... every tutorial requires the corresponding download to be able to make it - you will not be able to follow along with the steps if you did not get the cut files before they expire.
Q: Do I need a cutting machine to make the projects? Yes, you do! The Christmas Craft Countdown projects are specifically designed for cutting machines. Hand-cutting versions (e.g. to cut with scissors) are NOT included.
Q: What file formats are included for the free cutting files? A: Each cutting file design comes in SVG format. Most of them also come in DXF and PNG formats but this is not guaranteed for the Guest Projects.
Q: What cutting machines can these files be cut on? A: The free SVG files included in the Christmas Craft Countdown have been designed to cut on Cricut machines using the Design Space software. However, they can also be loaded into Silhouette Studio for Silhouette cutting machines or the Brother ScanNCut Canvas software, as well as any other cutting machine software that uses SVG, DXF or PNG files.
If a project contains a software tutorial, these have been recorded using Cricut Design Space as I am a Cricut owner so that is the software I use, however the same sort of techniques can be achieved in the software for other machines too.
Q: Can I cut the designs on a Cricut Joy? A: Some of the designs can be cut with the original Cricut Joy (the little blue machine), but some of them are too large and will not be able to be cut on the Cricut Joy. Most of the designs can be cut with the recently released Cricut Joy Xtra machine.
Q: How do I get the SVG cut files and tutorials? A: Craft projects will be released one per day for 20 days, starting on 11th November 2023. You will be emailed the new projects each day, including links to download the free cut files. The cut files for each project are ONLY free for the first 24 hours after the go live, so be sure to check your emails every day to make sure you don't miss any!
Q: What if I miss a day's download? A: No problem - you can purchase it as part of the Instant Access Bundle. This gives you immediate and ongoing access to all tutorials and downloads, plus other bonuses such as printable PDF worksheets for every project and additional Christmas cut files.
Q: Do you share my email address with the guest designers? A: No, your email address is not shared with any of the guest designers. Information will be provided about each guest designer when their project becomes available which will let you know you how to sign up for that designer's email newsletter, should you wish to receive it, but that is completely optional.
Q: My question isn't answered - how can I get in touch? A: Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - I'm always happy to help!
I aim to reply to every email within 24 hours but please remember that I live in the United Kingdom so there may be time differences between us that may delay my responses to your email.
