Last week Cricut Design Space was updated to v5.12 which included a nice feature to be able to share our projects more freely. I made a quick video so you can quickly and easily learn this new feature.
I am excited to show you just how easy it is now to share our Cricut Design Space Projects!
Bonus Tip at end of blog post, don’t miss it!!! (how to take a screenshot picture of your project design with a white background from within Design Space).
Quick Video How-To
How do I share a Cricut project with one person?
You have total control of who you want to share your projects with. At the time of this blog post there are 5 ways to share a project.
- Only Me
- Anyone with Link
- Everyone (This means it will be added to the Cricut Community)
To share with only one person, choose “Anyone with Link” as shown below:
How do I make my Cricut Project Private?
Currently your Cricut Projects are private “unless” you share them with anyone but you.
As you can see in the photo above you can also share your project with yourself which would still be considered private.
How do I email a project from Cricut Design Space
Our email programs do not link directly to Cricut Design Space. But you can easily use the sharing option “Anyone with link” and then copy/paste that link into an email.
How to share your Cricut Design Space Project
When you first open Cricut Design Space it takes you to your “home” screen On the home screen you can see “My Projects”. Locate the project you want to share.
You may see your projects showing a blue circle or a white circle as seen below:
- Blue Circle – You have already shared this project before.
- White Circle – You have not shared this project at all.
If you want to share a project you have previously shared (blue circle button) you can click on the blue circle button and quickly see your options to share your Cricut Design Space Project again as seen below:
Or you can click on the 3 little dots on the right side of the project across from the blue circle dots and choose “Edit Project Details” as seen below:
If you want to share a project you have NOT shared before (white circle button) you can click on either the white circle button or the 3 little dots on the right side of the project across from the white circle dots and choose “Edit Project Details”. Both options will give you this choice since you will need to process the instructions I mention next on your first project share.
If you have already shared a project as I described above you do not need to “Edit Project Details” again.
In order to share a project even if it’s just to yourself, you need to add a picture of your project or at least a screenshot of your project and a short description. Adding a tag is optional.
Then you can check “who can view this project” and use the drop down arrow to select your choice.
Next you will select “Save” as seen below.
The next screen after you select “Save” will allow you to chose between posting it on Facebook or Pinterest or “Copy Project Link”.
If you click on “Copy Project Link” the link will be saved to your computer or device’s clipboard so you can then copy/paste that link wherever you like. Yay! Isn’t that so easy and awesome!
Cricut has another update planned for version 13 in which there will be another slight change. When this happens, I will be sure to update this post to reflect the change and also record another video as well.
And now for my Bonus Tip:
How to take a screenshot picture of your project design with a white background from within Design Space
So let’s say you don’t want to take a regular photo of your project maybe because you are going to only share the project to yourself or want to show someone something real quick.
First, let’s change the Cricut Design Space grid to get the plain white background for your picture.
- Open your project you want to share or just get a screenshot of.
- Click in the upper left-hand corner of your lined grid in the open square showing in the picture below:
- Keep clicking this square until the grid is gone and you have a plain white background.
Now let’s get the screen shot:
To take a screen shot you can use these commands from your keyboard:
Windows: “Snip it tool” press Windows + Shift + S
MAC: press Command + Shift + 4
Save your screen shot to your desktop or where you prefer on your computer.
Now you can easily use this screen shot as your photo to share your project.
Keep in mind as seen in the picture below, if you plan on sharing your project with the Cricut Community you would want really nice photos instead of screenshots 📸
