How do you transfer your imagination to a Cricut Explore One or Explore Air machine? There’s an app for that.
Cricut’s machines come with fully featured software called Cricut Design Space for PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad at no additional charge. The company is also working on an Android app, so there’s no need to feel left out if you don’t have an iOS device.
Cricut Design Space lets you design a project from the ground up, or choose a pre-designed Make it Now option, ready when you are and created by professional artists. Make it Now projects include home decor, fashion, paper crafting and much more, and many of them are free.
In Cricut Design Space, you can select from Cricut’s library of more than 50,000 images, or upload your own using the Upload Images tool. The software will accept most popular graphics formats – .svg, .jpg, .bmp, .png, .dcx and .gif – and you can also use the fonts already installed on your computer. When you’re ready, use the Cut What You Want tool to bring your design to life.
Since the software is cloud based, all of your projects are stored online and available where ever you go, whether on your computer or using a tablet or smartphone anywhere else. You can work on projects on the bus or subway on your way to work, in the carpool line, at the coffee shop, on your lunch break or in the waiting room at your doctor’s office.
Make party favors and invitations that’ll wow your kids’ friends and parents. Create T-shirt decals for your kids’ teams and clubs. Design decorations for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday. Make fashion and home decor items to give as gifts, sell online to make some extra money or donate to school or church fundraisers.
