March 18, 2021 by Cricut

Creating the best possible Design Space experience for our members remains a significant focus for our team.


Hearing and understanding your feedback is crucial because it helps us make improvements and bring you new features that matter to you. For that, we say thank you, and please keep sharing with us. Below is a brief overview of all that is new to Design Space — including exciting new features like Offset (yes!) and project Collections. We have lots of exciting features coming; this is just the beginning.

Offset

Use the offset feature on the desktop app to create decorative outlines to shapes, text, or groups of objects to make your designs pop. This popular design technique adds a professional touch to custom stickers, cake toppers, T-shirt designs, and more.  Learn more about what is possible with Offset.

Project Collections

Easily organize projects on the desktop app in custom folders so you can quickly find the project you want, when you want it. Name the collections in any way that works for you — Paper Flowers, T-shirt Designs, Custom Orders, etc. Learn more about Project Collections.

Education videos in Design Space

You’ll notice links to helpful how-to and tutorial videos within Design Space. These short segments will help you learn new features, brush up on basics, or just level up your creative skillset. Easily organize projects on the desktop app in custom folders so you can quickly find the project you want, when you want it. Name the collections in any way that works for you — Paper Flowers, T-shirt Designs, Custom Orders, etc. Learn more about Project Collections.

Pen Thickness on Canvas

From the Canvas, you can now preview your design with thicker or thinner pen & marker tip sizes — so you can better imagine what your project will look like.

Profile Search

Quickly find your favorite Cricut Community contributors and their shared projects! Learn more about Profile Search, Community Avatars, and Project Attribution.

My Project Search

Quickly find specific projects you saved in My Projects. Learn more about My Project Search.

Faster Image and Text Load

Text, large images, and complex projects now load faster. We’ve rewritten the code for Canvas to improve performance, including its ability to handle larger, more complicated files faster! Learn more about faster image & text load.

Copy and Paste between projects

Now you can copy design elements from one Design Space Canvas and paste them to another. Just select and copy the desired object (or group of objects), then paste them into a new or existing Design Space canvas. You can use your favorite keyboard shortcuts or use the Edit dropdown menu to use the Copy and Paste commands. We will continue to update Design Space with new features and improvements.
