Using print to cut with Design Space

Love using the print to cut feature in Cricut Design Space..made these mirrors using that feature.. just created my design, flatten, then click Make it.  And now the new size for print to cut makes it possible that i'm able to cut 4 at 3 inches instead of 2 from the old program.

Golf tshirt

Using my Cricut Explore Air 2 did this tshirt for a buddy that is moving away to FL where she'll get to play golf much more then she does here in Baltimore.  Was easy since this image is already in Cricut Design Space along with the tag. Needed something quick done in less then an hour and that was even to press it.

Pink squirrel..why not

Needed something to do a few days ago, i love this squirrel riding on its bike, its a image in the Cricut Library in Design Space..normally i cut it with black vinyl, but on this day i felt like pink, so here's my pink squirrel riding her back and then using Cricut glitter iron cut the words and added to the bag.

Teachers appreciation tote bags

Did these tote bags for a buddy of mine well for his son to take to his teachers.

Now using Cricut Design Space Beta 3, the new format lots of new features have been added and hopefully more will be added before its final release.

School bus boxes

So the other week was teacher appreciation week, but appreciate the bus drivers as well.  So using my Cricut Explore Air 2, i cut these boxes in Design Space, then used the print to cut feature and did the buses.  Love that print to cut feature makes things so much easier.

Scrubs and more scrubs

Made this little candy treats for my doctor office, since they moved into a new place..they really enjoyed them.  Used my Cricut Explore Air 2 and Design space to create this simple pattern, using the slice and weld features makes it so simple to be as creative as you want to be. Each holds 2 Hershey nuggets.

oh the places..bookmarks

So I guess I'm on a bookmark kick these past few days.. did these bookmarks yesterday.. using my Cricut Explore Air 2..and a Cricut pen.. the project is in the Make it Now section of Design Space.. i let the Explore draw on the white side of some scrapbook paper, cut it and then i laminated them.. made a envelope in Design Space to fit the bookmark.. simple easy gift but meaningful.

Faux leather bookmarks

So I just posted about the Cricut faux leather - just made these bookmarks today using it.  Cut some HTV and added to it.

Cricut Faux Leather

Have you seen the new colors that Cricut has in there faux leather?  Have you received a roll in one there Mystery boxes and not known what to do with it? Well here are a few ideas.. and guess what you can use HTV (heat transfer vinyl) on it as well.

These pencil holders are in the Make it Now section of Design Space, so easy to make, and you can personalize them using Cricut's iron on... very easy project.  And you can cut the faux leather with the regular German Carbide blade on the poster board setting, no need for  a deep cut you do need a very sticky mat, preferably the purple mat, I haven't tried yet but maybe a brand new green mat would hold it down, i'll have to try that.

Cricut Easter huggers

How cute are these little huggers, they are in Design Space if you have Cricut Access they are included along with 22 other images in a brand new set called Hopping down the bunny trail.
My Cricut Explore Air 2 drew it using my Cricut pens of course :) The Reeses peanut butter eggs are perfect for this project as they have a flat back.

St Patrick day treats for Assisted Living residence

Here is my finished project that I will giving to the residents at the Assisted living on this Sunday..Cricut glitter cardstock is what i used.  Then using my Explore Air 2 i used the print to cut feature..which is when you can take most any image and print it to your home printer and then the Explore will cut it out for you. I used that feature for the hats, turned out really nice i added a hat to each bag giving them an Irish blessing and some Rolo's as a treat.
