Save, Open and Edit Projects in Cricut Design Space

Here is an easy and comprehensive guide on how to save Cricut design Space, edit Cricut Design Space and Open Circuit Design Space. The processes are simple to undertake and you can pay little heed to your knowledge of the Cricut machine itself. 

 

One approach to make the best of Cricut Design Space is to learn how to save, open, and edit your projects to make them more valuable outside of the Design Space Sphere. However, several people may be unaware of the process of saving, opening, and editing the projects. Therefore, here is a brief yet useful manual for getting the best from all your projects at Cricut’s Design Space. 

 

Cricut Design Space is an application where you can expand your inventive projects by designing and cutting. To put it plainly, it is where all the creative processes occur before you finish your projects. 

 

Regardless of whether you want to begin your project from scratch or use the tremendous collection of pictures and font styles present in the Cricut library, the application ‘space’ permits all project types. In this tutorial, we will learn about how to save, open, and edit projects in Cricut Design Space on the desktop platform and mobile application. The procedure is pretty straightforward, so sit tight and read each step carefully. 

 

How to Save Projects in Cricut Design Space Desktop?

 

Firstly, we will learn how to save projects in Cricut Design Space.

 

Well, Cricut Design Space does not autosave your projects. So, just to be safe, you need to keep up a good practice, and that practice is instantly saving your project when you add anything to your canvas area; it can be a shape, image, etc. However, even a slight alteration in your design should prompt you to save your project. In some cases, projects can take some time to get saved. 

 

Nonetheless, if Design Space crashes, all your work will go down the chute and you will be back to square one. I regret spending a lot of my time while learning this exercise but you don’t have to repeat the mistake. It would be ideal if you save as you proceed with your design. Note: I save changes on my projects at regular intervals (every five minutes). 

 

When you start on a plain canvas, the Save option (situated on the upper right-hand corner of the window) is grey in color. However, once you include a picture, it will activate. To save your project, place the first thing (picture, text, or shapes) you will use on your canvas.

 

When you click on save, a little window will appear requesting that you give a name to your project. If you are using Cricut Images or font styles, you will have the choice to share your project on Facebook or Pinterest. 

 

In any case, if you use your personal pictures, the “Public” option would not show up. However, try not to stress. You will be able to share your projects from the “My projects” window that I will cover later in the article. 

 

Once you are done naming your project, it’s time to click on the “Save” button. A blue banner will bring you the good news. It will confirm that you have successfully saved your project.

 

Now, you can begin changing your design by including text, evolving colors. In this model, I simply changed the shade of the file. Ensure to save your project every three to five minutes because you would prefer not to sit around if the program crashes. If you need to do another project, guarantee that your former project is saved. 

 

If, for some reason, you actually have unsaved changes, Design Space will warn you. Try not to mess with this warning. If you click on “Replace” and not “Save,” you will lose your project. 

 

How to Open a Project in Cricut Design Space Desktop?

 

To open a project you’ve just made, you have to have a clean new canvas. Right now, there’s no way for you to combine the projects. Let’s hope Design Space includes this feature soon. You can find your designs in two distinct ways. 

 

The first and quickest one is tapping on the “My Projects” option situated on the right-hand corner of the window. Another option is by tapping on the Projects option on the left board of the canvas and go to the drop-down menu and select “My Projects.” 

 

In the screenshot attached above, the project I made is right there. The order of the projects is based on the last saved date. From “My Projects,” you can alter, erase, redo, and cut your files. 

 

There are many places you can tap on a specific project. If you click on the “Share,” option you will be asked to include a depiction, depiction, or image. What’s more, if you click on the three dots (base right of each project), you will have the option to erase it. 

 

If you need to redo your project or remove it, you should tap on the highlighted picture of your project. After clicking, a little window will open, and you’ll have the option to share and look at the information about the project, including the textual styles, shapes, and pictures you used. 

 

In particular, from this window, you can change your project or send it to cut. The “Make it” option is extraordinary since, in the case that your project is finished, you can avoid all the Design Space process and go to the Mat review immediately. If you need to alter the appearance of your project, click on customize. 

 

How to Edit Projects in Cricut Design Space Desktop?

 

When you click on Customize for any project, you will have the option to alter and change things around. Look at the accompanying screenshot to see the alterations I made to the first project. 

 

  1. Include Shape: Add a circle in the canvas and change the color. 

 

  1. Weld: Select the first picture and click on weld (lower part of the Layers Panel) to have the design in a single layer. 

 

  1. Slice: Place the welded picture in the circle, select both the circles, and click on Slice (an option close to weld). 

 

  1. Keep the purple circle with the cut-out picture. 

 

Editing things in Design Space is easy and uncomplicated. I am sure you can improve, but knowing the best way to undertake changes is optimal and it is my responsibility to acquaint you with that. 

 

Stop and think for a minute. If you click on save, you will override your unique design, and if that is the thing you need, then it’s okay. If you need to keep the project you began with, click on save, and select the “Save As” option.

 

When you click on “Save As,” you will be asked to change your project. In this situation, I just included a “two” to the title. Presently, if you choose to use either design once more, return to your projects and see if any of them are accessible.

 

Save, Open, and Edit Projects in Cricut Design Space App (iPad, Phone) 

 

The procedure you undertake to save, edit, and open a Project in Cricut’s App is fundamentally the same as the one you would assume from your desktop. 

 

Let’s begin. 

 

How to Save a Project in Cricut Design Space App? 

 

The Cricut Design Space App has three unique views, Home, Canvas, and Make. 

 

By default, when you first open the app, the view will be set to “Home.” To begin taking a shot at another project, click on the huge blue square with the plus sign, or tap on “Canvas.” 

 

To have the option to save your project, you have to initiate something (shape, text, or picture). 

 

After placing the image on the canvas, tap on “Save” located on the upper-left corner of the app. When you tap on Save, a little window will come up where you can type the name of the project. 

 

Choose “Save to the Cloud” if you need to get to your activities from your PC, and you have a good Internet Connection. Choose “Save to iPad/iPhone” if you don’t have viable Internet and love working offline.

 

While choosing “Save to Ipad,” you won’t have the option to see those projects on your PC. But, you’ll have the opportunity to use that project over and over without the Internet. 

 

I generally choose “Save to the cloud” since I like my projects on my PC. In any case, choose whatever meets your requirements the best. 

 

Save changes as you chip away at your design since, supposing that the app crashes, you will lose the entirety of your work. 

 

An interesting point is the means by which to begin another project when you have something on your canvas (It took some time to figure it out myself). 

 

Go to the “Home” view and tap on “New Project.” If you actually have unsaved changes, the app will warn you. Select Preview and save your project. You repeat a similar process to avoid any warning sign. Try not to mess with this notice; if you don’t save, your project will be lost. 

 

How to Open a Project in Cricut Design Space App?

 

To open a previously made project ensure that your canvas is perfect (no different projects, text, plan, or shapes) and go to the “Home” tab on the app. 

 

On this view, and below your profile picture, there’s a drop-down menu. Click there and select a location where your projects will be saved (Cloud or iPad/iPhone storage). 

 

Note: From this drop-down (and if you have the Internet) menu, you can likewise find ready to cut projects, free projects for your machine, and so on. Since my projects are saved on the cloud, I chose “My Projects on the Cloud.”  You can refer to the screenshot down beneath.

 

From this view, “Home/My Projects in the Cloud,” you can access several options for each project. 

 

If you tap on “Share,” you will be asked to include a depiction, photograph or image of your project. If you click on the three dots (base right of each project), you will have the option to erase it. 

 

If you need to make changes in your project or remove it, you should tap on the highlighted picture of your design. 

 

After tapping, the view on your phone will change, and you’ll have the option to see the information about the project, including the text styles, shapes, and pictures you used. 

 

In particular, from this window, you can change your project or send it to cut. The “Make it” option is extraordinary since, in the case that your project is finished, you can avoid all the Design Space process and go to the Mat review immediately. If you need to alter the appearance of your project, click on customize. 

 

How to Edit Projects in Cricut Design Space App?

 

When you tap on Customize for any project, you will have the option to alter and change things around. 

 

Look at the accompanying screenshot to see the alterations I made to the first design. 

 

  1. Select all the letters within the “daydream outline.” 

 

  1. Weld all the inward letters. 

 

  1. Cut the layout of the layer with the welded letters. 

 

Note: Slice and Weld are in the activities menu. 

 

This editing is basic. I am confident you can do better.

 

If you tap on save, you will supersede your unique design, and if that is the thing that you need, great. If you need to keep the project you began with, click on save, and choose “Save As.” 

 

At the point when you click on “Save As,” you will be asked to change the name of your unique project. In this case, I just included a “two” to the title. 

 

If you choose to use either design once more, return to the “Home” view and see that the design logos will now be accessible.

 

That is all for the tutorial. I hope you have learned everything you wanted.
