You bought a Cricut machine and now you need to figure out how to use Cricut Design Space. You click the Undo arrow many, many times if you need to, as long as you haven’t saved the design in between when you welded and when you realize you need to unweld. It’s not the ideal situation but, hey, at least you have a way to do it if you absolutely have to. My advice is if you are worried that you may need to Unweld something later, would be to Duplicate the objects you want to weld before you weld them.

  • This will show you how many mats you will have cut and what each mat will have on it.
  • Now, select the Stack Colors colors you want to change and drag it to the new color.
  • Roll the mat in the Cricut and click the Cut button on the machine.
  • Flip the material over and apply medium pressure with the iron to the back of the material for an additional seconds.
  • When you create your design with the colors you are wanting to draw with, Cricut Design space will guide you by telling you what color to load.
  • However, you could create stencils or templates with the machine.

To do this, select Shapes from the menu at the bottom. This will place a square on your workspace. Then click the lock button at the bottom left of the square. This will let you change the aspect ratio. The first step, of course, is to design your stickers. I do this on my iPad in Procreate and Affinity Designer, but you can use any app you prefer, including programs like Photoshop on your PC or Mac.

Connecting Your Cricut To Write

The gray and white checkered background indicates that it is “transparent” and only the image left. To import your custom image, first you need to create a new project in Design Space. Then, click on the UPLOAD button which is on the left hand side at the bottom of the Design Space screen. Once you are happy cut out your image, wipe the ceramic coaster with a lint-free cloth to remove any residue. Now place your image face down onto your coaster and secure with heat resistant tape. The Easy Press gets soooo hot, so any other tape may melt.

A membership also gives you a discount on everything you buy from Cricut. Read more in my post about Cricut Access here. Many times we will find an image we would love to use in a Cricut project, but it is “messy”. Maybe it has things on it we don’t want to use or text that we want to change. Then peel the excess vinyl away from the letters or design you cut.

Whats Great About Cricut Infusible Ink Pens?

The entry index, and the three values associated with it, are displayed in the ImageJ status bar as you move the cursor over the LUT Editor window. Click on an entry to edit the red, green and blue values for that entry. Opens a text window containing information about the active image.

You can see that the placement of the design has changed. By default, Design Space has rearranged the parts of the design to save space on the cutting mat. I’ve uploaded this image into Design Space. You can see on the right hand side in the layers panel, that there are 4 pieces included in this design. First I’ll explain how to use the attach feature in Design Space to keep the placement of a design.
