Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows has a stylish interface that features a self-healing mat as the background.

Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows has some common shapes built into the menu, and a feature called "Welding" allows users to create new shapes out of overlapping shapes.

You can save your files and you can activate your Cricut machine with the "Cut" button through the program's menus.
