How to use Lea France SVG files to cut your papers with an electronic cutting machine

Posted by Carine Soriano on



This video will show you to use Lea France SVG files to cut your papers with an electronic cutting machine. I used cricut design space for this video but you can use any other software that uses SVG format.

  • UPDATE: After numerous attempts, SVGs do not work with Silhouette the same as they do with Cricut. However, you can make some very nice layouts using the cutting file if you do not intend to use the Weld command. This command does not work with these SVG files and the Weld command in Silhouette. Hopefully someone will figure this out for Silhouette users, someday, so that the cutting files can be manipulated.

  • I have a Silhouette Cameo 4. It took me a while to get used to this but, I simply put a sheet of cardstock into my cutting machine and allow it to print out the entire stencil. I then take the pieces that I need and save the rest for a rainy day. The process is really like putting a puzzle together.

  • The Silhouette software works entirely differently from Cricut, and possibly reads the files differently. I bought Card Trick, Iris, and Stitches. The layers appear to be flattened, there is just one layer. The black areas need to be drawn by the user. Unless the user is very skilled with the Silhouette software these aren’t faster than cutting fiddly little shapes out by hand.

  • I bought several SVG stencil files and am trying to use them. I have a silhouette cutting machine and I cannot understand what you are doing in this video. It makes little sense from beginning to end. It may be the different terminology but can you suggest another video that I can use to help me better understand. Thank you.
