Cricut Design Space for Scrapbooking

I’m Shaunna and I have been using a Cricut since 2013 when I first joined Close To My Heart.  I began with an Expressions machine using Cricut Craft Room.  At the time it was mind blowing to me that I could manipulate images to suit any scrapbook layout I was making, cut titles AND use a computer program to make all that easier.

Fast forward a few years and Cricut launched new, improved machines and Cricut Design Space.  This really raised the bar on the potential for scrapbook applications.  One of the biggest changes was how easy it became to bring SVG files into the program.  This meant we were no longer limited to using designs sold by Cricut.

Close To My Heart began developing digital art collections to pair with their paper suites in 2019.  These low-cost collections can be used just as they are or added to layouts and cards made with the co-ordinating papers, PML cards, Embellishments and stickers of the physical product suite.  A match made in heaven! 

It also allows you to cut any of the items in any papers or colours you require – this extends the applications of the collection, offering you the opportunity to perfectly co-ordinate your page elements to your photo themes and colours.

One of the best parts is that once you have purchased a collection, you own it for life.  This is not a subscription system. View the Digital Art collections currently available here.  They are delivered instantly to your email inbox and are freight free.

What to expect in this course

In this course I will walk you through the steps to bring the SVG files into Design Space and manipulate them to create exactly what you need for your scrapbook and card projects.

The course is hosted on my website and uses step by step videos showing you my Design Space screen so you can follow along on yours. Watch on your mobile or tablet and work on your computer. You have lifetime access to the lessons and can ask questions of me through the course comments.

I know we are going to have a lot of fun exploring all the possibilities and you are going to feel so proud of yourself with all you learn.

What past students have said

Katrina: I wanted to get more use out of my Cricut. The modules are broken down into manageable tasks. I love that I can pause, rewind and make along with Shaunna.

Elizabeth: I had recently upgraded my Cricut to the Explore 3 from the previous cartridge version and needed to learn how to work it. Doing the online course meant I could learn step-by-step with Shaunna’s expert instruction. She went into more detail that what others offered, and I could review at a later date. If you are thinking about enrolling, definitely do it! It’s a life changer.

Sonja: I bought a Cricut Joy. I am not intuitive with technology, so this course helped me learn things about the Cricut Joy that I didn’t know I didn’t know! I love that I can go back and rewatch the classes if I forget something. It’s an excellent way to learn.

I look forward to helping you gain confidence using your Cricut and Design Space.
