Learning Cricut Design Space can be intimidating at first. Even if you are just a beginner, you still make great projects. I’ll show you how to make beginner, intermediate, and what I consider advanced projects. It all starts with learning how to upload images to Cricut Design Space and advances to making layers.
Uploading silhouette images is super simple. Click on the image below to watch a video with a step-by-step tutorial of uploading silhouette images.
This is one of my favorite shirts. I always get a ton of compliments when I wear it. It’s super easy! Any beginner can make this.
Once I was comfortable with the process of uploading silhouettes, I was ready to move on to a single layer image.
Click on the image below for a video tutorial showing step-by-step for uploading the image of Belle. For these types designs, I always do a Google search for coloring pages.
Here is the first shirt I made using this method. I uploaded a coloring page of Lilo and Stitch then I used a flower from Design Space. I made this shirt for a trip to Disneyland. It is a pretty intricate cut and took my Explore Air a long time to cut, but turned out incredible.
I won’t lie. It took me about a year to get to this level of making layers and actually layering the vinyl. Check out my tutorial on layer HTV here. Click on the image of Boo to learn how to make layers in Cricut Design Space.
Here are some examples of layered HTV designs I’ve made.
So, don’t be afraid to experiment. As you can see, even beginners can make some incredibly cute things. Get to crafting!
