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!!

Colored Foam Adhesive

I have a fellow crafter and blogger that I love to follow. Her name is Melody Lane and she does awesome crafting videos and even has a daily vlog channel of other things she does in her day. Her website is full of great information and project ideas and there is always something to learn from her You Tube crafting tutorials. Today she posted a video on how to make your own colored foam adhesive and I just had to share. It is awesome and something I can’t believe I never thought of. Can’t wait to give it a try and save money making foam dots (or squares, strips, triangles, etc) in colors to match my project. Check out her sites and check out this video. It is and AWESOME idea!
