  1. I would like to search through my saved projects using keywords like cards, Christmas, Halloween, home decor, etc. Or I would like to be able to search through my saved projects by the name I have given the project. Currently I can only search through the ready to make projects.

  2. When I got my Cricut Maker, I didn’t realize I had to access a computer! Luckily I am staying at a residence and I have access.
    Then you charge if I want to do projects!
    I think it is hard to learn, there isn’t even a book!
    I wish I had never bought it!

    • I am sorry that you are having problems. If you have a smartphone, we have apps available that allow you to design and cut. We do also have many free images and projects, and you can also upload your own images.

    • No, you can sign up for a free account. There are some free images, fonts, and projects, and you can upload your images too. The Access subscription gives you the ability to have over 50,000 more images available for your designs.

  3. Will Cricut continue to have new cartridges??? There are so many good reasons to keep selling them. Please?????

  4. If you have project saved and you had access then you no longer have access do you them have to pay to make your saved projects?

  5. I wish you had a Canadian site that sold your products in Canadian dollars. I get dinged all the time with additional charges ?.

  6. So to use this you dont need all the cartarages to plug in..?? I would love to do the monthly one but i need to.know just how it works.

  7. Goodmorning
    I just joined my membership yesterday and it took the standard monthly off my card 2 times and then on today I cant use it.

  8. I Absolutely love Cricut design space, im new to the cricut scene but im learning very quick. The question I have is why you guys dont have a bigger selection for ? bowling. Im on a league and I make shirts for my team, but theres not a lot of bowling images.

  9. I just purchased the Cricut Explore Air 2. However, my computer is not wireless or Bluetooth capable. What do I need to do to use this machine. I cannot afford a new computer so is there a simple fix?

    • Debbie, you can link your physical cartridge to Design Space, and use them there. Then you won’t have to have the physical cartridge again. Unless….you have an older machine that you can still use them with. I have a little over 400 physical cartridges. I linked almost all of them to Design Space. I kept my cartridges though, since I have other older Cricut machines I love to use them with. I do love having my cartridges all available in Design Space though!

  10. I’m trying to do planner stickers,but have a cricut expression,Can I use it on any website of yours to create them since Cricut craftroom was removed? I’m confuse from silhouette studio and cricut design and design studio?

  11. Hi! I was wondering if I downloaded the app on my iPad would I still b able to use a pc with my Cricut explore air 2 I just got it for Christmas and not really sure what I’m doing. Just want to be sure doing both won’t cause problems saving projects. Our pc is windows 10. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • Yes, you could do that. I usually design on my laptop, for instance, and then use my phone to go cut it out next to my Cricut. If you save your project, you will be able to access it inside the app if you are signed into the same account.

  12. I have a Explore Air 2 and just got the maker can they both be used on the same computer? If not what do I need to get to run my maker?

    • Hi. They both run off Design Space, so if your computer has been working fine for your Explore Air 2, you’ll be all set to use your new Maker. 🙂

  13. I have a quesiton.
    Is it possible to use the image of design space commercially?
    How can i check if some are possible?

Got something to say?
