New Cricut projects

It's been so long since I posted any of my projects here. Running a Facebook group takes a lot of time!

I thought I'd post what I've been up to since November and links to where you can get the Design Space projects. (They're all in the albums at Cricut Explore, Maker and More.)  

Click on the link above each photo to open the post in the group. There you'll find the Design Space project link along with relevant project details. 

That's everything up to the end of April!

Happy crafting!  ♥

Cricut Design Space updates

December and January saw some updates to Design Space for Desktop.

December's update (v7.23) included a new way that you work with fonts as well as an expansion to Collections. 

You'll find my overview of those changes here: 

You'll find the full release notes for this update here:

Today's update (v7.25) fixed the problem of small images being difficult to be selected due to the bounding box handles getting in the way. 

This update makes it easier to move small images/text around the canvas by turning off the bounding boxes when they are so close that they would touch. When the bounding boxes are visible on small images/text it makes it difficult to hit that sweet spot in the middle of the image and it's resized or rotated in error.
Without the bounding boxes the tiny images are easy to select and move around your canvas. Turning the bounding boxes back on is as easy as clicking the zoom in button at the bottom of the canvas.
You will see a message at the bottom of your canvas the first three times you make an image small enough to remove the bounding boxes. After that you'll no longer see that message.

You'll find the complete release notes for this update here:

Cricut product launch - 2x2 Card mat and new card sizes

Those of you with the Cricut Joy will be familiar with the Cricut Card mat. Since that was launched Cricut were inundated with requests for a similar product for the Explore and Maker range of machines.

Cricut listened and today have launched the 2x2 Cricut Card mat!

(For those of you who purchased one from a retail store earlier than they were supposed to be sold - functionality to use the new mats will be added to Design Space later today!)

(This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. This is at no extra cost to you.)

You can now multiply your card making by cutting up to four cards at once! You can purchase the new mats here.

2x2 card mat pack of one: Currently unavailable @ 30/6/22
2x2 card mat pack of five:

Don't forget to use my promo code CEMM22 to save 10% on materials/accessories purchases over $50.

Along with the new 2x2 card mat Cricut have also launched a new range of card sizes in both Insert Cards and Cutaway cards. They have created a new sizing system (R = rectangle S = square) and now have 5 sizes for you to choose from:

R10 - 3.5 in x 4.9 in (8.9 cm x 12.4 cm)
R20 - 4.25 in x 5.5 in (10.8 cm x 14 cm)
R30 - 4.5 in x 6.25 in (11.4 cm x 15.9 cm)
R40 - 4.75 in x 6.6 in (12.1 cm x 16.8 cm)
S40 - 4.75 in x 4.75 in (12.1 cm x 12.1 cm)
Along with new card sizes they have also added new pack sizes. Now you can purchase some of their most popular cards in packs of up to 42 cards! Here's just a sample of the new packs.

You can see the new range of cards here:

Stay tuned for lots more info on the new 2x2 card mat. If you have any questions - feel free to head over to my Facebook group and ask in the comments on my post there. I'll be happy to help!!
