I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up on a good source for free SVG designs. My wife is big int CNC paper cutting projects (she uses a Cricut “electronic cutting machine”, which is basically a CNC paper cutter) and she has been downloading the “free-be of the day” from a site called “Miss Kate Cuttables” (www.misskatecuttables.com/). They sell SVG files on the site, but on the left hand column they also offer a “free-be of the day” that you can download at no charge.
When I discovered x-carve and Easel, I ‘borrowed’ her hard disk full of freely downloaded SVGs and suddenly I have a full library of “arts and crafts” type projects at my disposal. Most of them are adequately layered to be very customize-able in Easel and even more-so if you use Inkscape. I expect to get a lot of use out of this type of stuff after our daughter is born (my wife already has me queued up to carve out letters and figures of all sorts other stuff for the nursery as soon as my x-carve gets here).
Anyway I just wanted to pass along this free source of SVGs and X-carve-able craft ideas.
