Working with Fonts in Cricut Design Space

Hello!  Now that most of us have had our Cricut Explore for a little while, we have started venturing out beyond the basics.  Or maybe you are new to Cricut and are just learning.  First, congrats on your new machine if you are a newbie!  It is an amazing tool in our crafting world.  The Explore has MANY new things it can do and they are constantly adding more features.  One of the many awesome things the Cricut Explore can do is it has the ability to use fonts from your computer (system fonts).  If you have never downloaded a font before, this may be a mystery to you.  I will warn you though, once you start . . . it’s hard to stop.  You will find before too long you have hundreds of fonts on your computer to pick from.   Now, once it is downloaded, how do you use it in Design Space?

I have created a little video tutorial below that will decode the mystery of downloading a font onto your computer and using it in Design Space.  BUT, the possibilities don’t stop there.  Once you have that font installed it is available to use in ANY program on your computer that uses fonts.  Watch the video then like, share and comment and let me know what you think.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I’d be happy to help.

Have a wonderful day and HAPPY CRAFTING!!

Flickr Explore

Loving Macaw

I was searching last night through some of my groups on Flickr and discovered that there were tools to use to find out if your photo was ever on Explore. When I checked these tools, I found out in November one of my favorite photos ended up there. I was so amazed and happy. It doesn’t seemed to have stayed there long but oh well, it was there just the same. According to Scout, it was listed as 111 on November 20, 2007.

Pretty cool. I’m hoping to find that more of my photos were there someday but for now . . . I’m happy with just one photo on there. Thank you to all my Flickr friends for your support and kind words about my photos.
