Personalize Your Cricut Print and Cut

March 27, 2017


One of the Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine features I couldn’t wait to try was Print then Cut. Circuit offers over 50,000 printable images. Basically the image prints on your home printer, you take that print, place it on a Cricut cutting mat, make the setting for the kind of paper, then set it to go for cutting. The Cricut machine reads the printed lines that look like crop marks. These marks indicate how to cut the printed shape.

 

When it comes to technology I am a “jump in with two feet” kind of person. I take the let’s see what happens approach. So when I learned of Print then Cut, I tried it. Then I had to push it further and add to the designs using text and moving elements around. 

 

For the first example, I used a Cricut file and just added my own type.

 

The original Cricut file I used:

 

Pink Flower Card

#M10CF75

All Wrapped Up

For the second image, I took the original file and moved elements around, deleted some, and added type.

 

The Cricut file I used:

 

Green and Blue Paisly Card

What a nifty tool, I need to try one of them out!

Wow! Vinyl cutters sure have come a long way since I bought my first one several years ago! Thinking I'll have to upgrade soon. Thanks for sharing!

Love the Cricuit there is so much you can do with it.
