  1. I consider myself an intermediate with the basic Cricut. I just got the internet and i am really basic in computer skills.
    I started with what is now called the personal Cricut. The mat was 6″ x 12”. in fact I still have two of them. The next machine was an early Expression, it had a few blank buttons for something that was”up and coming”. I have used that machine day in and day out!

    Then my daughter showed me her Explore one, Wowza!!!
    Last year, I got the internet, then the Gold Explore Air 2!!!!
    And that’s where I needed to relearn almost everything.

    I am basic at Design Space, haven’t a clue how to import anything including font.

    The computer I have,still runs windows 7, It can’t change colors, and on my work/project page has items from the upper bar (the box that has measurements and a lock) down in the work area.

    I want to purchase the maker, my husband does inlay wood work, and I quilt and sew outfits for the grandkiddos. But, before that purchase, I will have to get a new laptop, one that has blue tooth.

    i ABOSULTELY love all my cricuts and want to learn more

  2. I may be a throwback to a different era, but I sorely miss having a paper users guide at my side. The videos are wonderful as they show the how to do’s visually. However, when I am looking for something specific, I’d rather thumb through a manual to find where the topic I need information on is instead of watching a video that might have the information I need in it. I’ve just watched 3 videos on vinyl and have not learned what I was looking for. I don’t mind watching a video, I just get frustrated when I am in a hurry and want a quick, specific answer. I’ve not had much luck with the search engine either. I love the machine and it’s capabilities and realize that it is much more environmentally friendly to not print a million lengthy guides. It would be nice, however, if one was available on line for customers to peruse in idle moments or when in a hurry for a specific answer.

  3. I have looked at the webinar in two different windows and cannot see the place to download the handouts. Others have said the same thing. On the replay please add a link to download those handouts.

  5. I too would like to be able to see the handouts. On the above comment pingback message link, I don’t see an area to download material. Where am I to go to do that? Thank you.

  6. I have the Cricut maker and it is my first ever cutting machine. I am at a basic skill level in design space, because computers can be my nemesis sometimes ? I am anxiously waiting for the knife blade to come out. So far I LOVE my Cricut Maker!!

    • 1)Where are you using Design Space – PC, Mac, iOS app or Android?
      2)The types that you can upload into Design Space are most .jpg, .bmp, .png, .gif, .svg, and .dxf files.
      3)You would go to your Canvas and click on Upload on the left. Then you can click to upload your file and follow the instructions to adjust it as needed.
      4) Once it is uploaded, you can click on it and choose Insert Images to get it to your Canvas.

  7. Design Space Beginner! Thanks for these webinars. Such a better path then my usual “I’ll figure it out as I go”. Is there a place where we can get copies of the handouts that are mentioned?

  8. I have just bought a maker, and want to use it to cut flexible metal clay ( aussie copper) The cuts are quite intricate, but although the clay is only about 1mm thick, the blades (fine or deep cut) will not cut all the way through, even on the heaviest pressure setting – birch+more. Has any one else tried this? I know there is a video from aussie metalclay, but no instuctions. I would be very grateful for some advice. Thanks.
