  5. Hi Jenna! I'm so glad you're a Christmas-aholic! Thanks for coming to my blog. I love playing around with my vinyl cutter, software, etc., and have tons of tips! First of all, I am not very technologically-savvy, so I prefer easy software. My cutter came with Sign Blazer which designs and cuts my vinyl, but it can't do everything. I bought CorelDraw, but HATE IT, so I found Inkscape (free!) and paint.net (also free!) online and LOVE THEM! I can use one of those programs or Sign Blazer to draw or vector clip art from the internet, and import them to Sign Blazer to cut. It took me months to get comfy enough with these programs to use them, but now I love it. Good luck!
