Home Page Overview – Introduction to Design Space – Tutorials for Beginners


In this video we’ll explore the new
personalized Home page of Cricut Design Space and take a quick tour of the
navigation, features, and projects. If this is your first visit you’ll need to
create a Cricut ID. Otherwise, just sign in with your existing account. Either way,
you’ll land here: your Home page. Yours will look different, of course, because it
will feature your projects, but you get the gist. The page is broken up into four
parts: the header, the banner, My Projects, and Featured content. Let’s hit them one-by-one. The header menu is key; you can move back and forth between this page
and the Canvas, calibrate your machine, update your firmware, and manage your
account. It also conveniently displays the page name, here.
This banner just beneath highlights special offers, product announcements,
tutorials, and maintenance messages. Move further down the page to find My
Projects. Here you can open your most recent projects or create a new one by
clicking the New Project icon. Or you can also create a new project, here. Clicking
on a project or starting a new project takes you to the Canvas where all the
personalization and design magic happens. We’ll go deep into the amazing Canvas in
later videos. A little further down you’ll find beautiful Ready-to-Make
projects created by professional artists. They’re broken into categories
highlighting different materials and techniques. You can make them exactly as
featured or customize like crazy. We feature new categories and designs all
the time, so check back often for creative inspiration. ‘See more’ shows you
all projects within a given category, and the arrows on either side of a row take
you to other projects in the same category.

    My machine is so old that design space isn't available for it anymore. Could I use a new Cricut? You bet I could. Good luck to all who enter the mother's day give away.

    Definitely need to update Cricut YouTube channel seeing how Design Space is no longer available on the web and you have to download it as an app. The app and web Design Space are totally different; for example in the canvas area to the right where the layer and color sync is my does not give me the option to change the color of my project or to change it from cut to print as I have noticed in several YouTube channels. As a newbie, definitely needs to be updated to today and also a printed manual sure would help as well. Thank you.

    Hi Jennifer! Is there a huge difference between the regular Cricut and the Cricut Maker? Is one a must over the other? Thank you!
