Intro to Cricut Design Space - Download, Uses and Advantages

 

Cricut Design app is an app created specifically for Circuit makers and Cricut Explore family smart cutting machines. It can be used on your desktop and your mobile device to create projects on your circuit maker.

Cricut Design space can be used free or with a subscription. It has some limited free fonts, images, and ready-to-make projects already in Design Space that you can use without a Cricut Access subscription at all. You can upload free fonts and images from the internet and you can create your own. 

However, you can buy whatever font or image you need. Fonts, images, and projects in the Design space are available in two ways: you can pay a one-time fee for it, or you can use it for free with a Cricut Access subscription. If you buy it, it's yours to keep. There is some exclusive content, just for Cricut Access members, that you cannot purchase separately.

Once the software is installed on your device, you'll be able to layout designs on or offline. You'll be able to select art and fonts to create designs or choose pre-designed projects to make. You can create your designs on other apps such as Adobe Illustrator or Procreate and upload them to Cricut Design Space so they can be formatted to work with Cricut machines.


   


Features of Cricut Design:

  1. You can choose from over 60,000 images, fonts, and ready-to-make projects
  2. Design text-only layouts using a variety of fonts.
  3. Upload and edit many image types such as jpg, .gif., .png, .bmp, .svg, and .dxf
  4. Bluetooth wireless capability 
  5. App syncs across all your devices, so you can design whenever inspired
  6. Finding images in the Cricut Library
  7. You can send projects to the virtual cutting mat
  8. Saving projects on your computer or in the clouds 
  9. Share projects with the Cricut community.
  10. Customize and create projects designed by other community members.



 

Why should you use Cricut Design Space over Cricut Design?

Cricut Design Space is an indispensable app that allows you to use your Cricut machine. It is easy to use and comes with free access to a lot of designs and fonts. It also has some basic design features that let you make your images and you have the option to browse lots of premade designs and use some of their images.


Advantages of the app:

  1. Design Space includes a library of images, fonts, and pre-designed projects.
  2. You can combine pre-designed images and fonts to layout project designs.
  3. You can create and edit pre-made projects by easily adjusting images and designs with a few tools.
  4. You can create original designs using simple shapes.
  5. You can create designs using your fonts 
  6. You can save your projects on the cloud, which allows you to work on your project from any device.

 

Disadvantages:

  1. The software calls for excellent internet stability. A slow internet connection is a big problem.
  2. Running tons of background programs while you’re trying to use Design Space can also cause the app to lag

  • I love my machine and app.

    By 51210girls (Pcmac user)

    A couple months ago my mother found a Cricut expression at a yard sale. She bought it for $30 and it came with 12 cartridges and no power cord or blade. She knew that this would be something right up my alley. We didn’t do our research and didn’t realize that the machine was basically obsolete as far as buying blades and equipment. We made due with what we could get and I was having a blast. I had so many ideas which I quickly realized were going to be hard for me to execute with what I had. We managed to pull together the money for an explore air 2. I have already made quite a few projects and I’m working on a more intricate one for my husband. I love using the cricut design space on my iPad. So far I prefer to work from my iPad than the computer. I have only come across two issues. One- when I am uploaded an image from my photos and pre editing it, my image will go completely white. The first 5-6 times it happened I got really angry closed out and started over. Then I realized my undo button was still there and it fixed it. Two- This one is more human error than anything. I have lost two projects because I was a dummy and did not save my projects at frequent enough (or at all) intervals, then my app would glitch I would have to restart the app and come back to my project selections and it was gone. Either way I am so happy to have bought this machine and can’t wait to see what my crafting future holds. 😀😀😀
  • Design Space on iPad is AWESOME...

    By Fox0919 (Pcmac user)

    I can’t say enough great things about my wonderful Cricut machine (I have the Explore Air...hoping for the Maker in the future🤞🏼), and being an iPad user over Windows for the most part...I LOVE this DesignSpace app!! I just love the portability of my iPad and being able to create anywhere I can take my iOS device! The developers are truly genious, and you’ve made the ability to create with the amazing Cricut soooo easy and fun! There are just a few features I’d love to see come to this app ( PRETTY PLEASE!) Please add the new curved text feature and ability to note project favorites! Those are both awesome features new to Design Space on Windows! I think it would also be a tremendous app feature to be able to add shapes by dragging and dropping where you want them on the project canvas instead of them appearing in the upper left corner of the canvas. Finally, if you could make it possible to highlight/select multiple items in the layers panel by tapping (just as you would by holding the shift key on a computer) that would also be soooo awesomely great! Thank you for this app that makes crafting so fun, and thanks for considering my comments! Have a great day!!
  • Beginning to wonder why I bought this Cricut

    By Ahola-girl (Pcmac user)

    I know this is long but please read. Is anybody else having this problem with an iPad or an iPhone. 8/18I am beginning to wonder why I bought this cricut explore air 2 - 3 weeks ago. I downloaded the app like the instructions said and everything was fine; I used it one time through the app on my iPhone 8+ and everything was fine. Then 4 days later I went to use my Cricut and none of the pictures will load on the app all I get is just a swirl. And after about 4 minutes of the swirl it just loads a blank screen with the square on it. The square says new design that’s not what I want because I don’t know how to use my cricut. I called support and they had me uninstall cricut design made sure I didn’t have cricut basic installed as well because apparently those two apps fight each other if you have both of them installed together and then re-install this app. And of course the same thing happened. They even tried at tech-support to log onto my account and try it there the same thing happened for them as well they told me to wait a few days and see if it continued. Tech-support said that other people that had iPhones and iPads were having the same problem as me so just wait. And the problem will resolve itself. Well as you guessed it it’s still continuing this is so frustrating all I want is to use this $350 machine that I have purchased.
  • In Love ❤️❤️❤️

    By WLMSx4 (Pcmac user)

    My only regret is that I did not buy the Cricut sooner! I recently bought the Air 2 and it’s a DREAM. Although I can use my laptop I have exclusively used the machine with my iPad using the Cricut app. Everything can be saved to your iCloud Drive (but have option to save to iPad). The great news is I can then access my iCloud Drive via my laptop if needed which has honestly been rare. My background is in advertising and marketing so I have a great appreciation for the ease of creating in my home as opposed to paying a professional printer. It reminded me of reading a negative review from someone trying to create intricate wedding invitations who was frustrated with the machine/app. Don’t let that deter a decision to buy or not buy the machine. The higher prices from printing companies are due to the misprints and mistakes. You can’t expect a machine intended for home use to mass produce large quantities with such detail on the first try and achieve perfection. Just like you shouldn’t expect absolute perfection as you are learning the machine and how to create your designs (if you’re a newbie like me) without a learning curve.
