Editable Images in Cricut Design Space is a feature that we all need to learn. Cricut has taken the work out of split letters and makes it quick and easy for us to create a gift or just a project for around the house.
Cricut has pre-made designs for us to edit with our own text. It is so easy now to quickly create a project with the Editable Images feature. Let’s see how.
How to use the Editable Images
On your canvas in Cricut Design Space, click on Editable Images on the left hand side. At this point you can browse all the designs they have available to you and there is a search bar to look for what you want. I have Cricut Access, so the prices for me are crossed off. If you don’t have Cricut Access you may have to pay for Editable Images.
Once you choose an image you want to edit, click on it and it should send it to your canvas.
Now is the fun part. Just start editing. Choose fonts, text, colors and patterns to create your personalized image. Look what I found!
This is such a great idea for a new baby, but to try to put this together ourselves would be a nightmare. Now you don’t have to. Just use the Editable Images feature in Cricut Design Space.
To begin to change the information in the image above, first your need to ungroup it. The ungroup button in on the top right corner and look like this icon.
Once you click that, all the pieces should be ungrouped and ready to edit. If they aren’t moving or allowing you to edit, look at the bottom right to be sure they aren’t attached. If the attach icon says unattach, click that and then the items should be ready to be edited.
You can change the font, the color and even use patterns inside the letters. You can even change the dinosaur inside this image. But this is pretty cute. I didn’t see one for a girl, but I am pretty sure they would have one.
Once you have edited to your liking, group the image and attach it. Now you are ready to make your image. This editable image will allow you to either Print then Cut or you can cut each color with vinyl and layer it. Either way will be adorable.
