Create Custom Vinyl Images for Free

Cricuts (and other vinyl cutting machines) are amazing. I love the ability to create amazing designs for friends, family, and myself, but buying fonts and designs can be expensive! As someone who will find any way to make a project cheaper, I refuse to buy fonts and graphics and found a better way. How can you create an amazing design without spending a penny?

Let me introduce you to your new best friend.

Canva is an incredible, easy-to-use website that creates beautiful designs on a phone or computer. It's truly my secret weapon. Stop buying fonts and clip art images from the Cricut Makerspace. Instead, let Canva make your life easier and your projects cheaper. Here are a few features that make Canva the perfect partner for your Cricut.

1. There are a ton of fonts to choose from AND you can upload your own. The Cricut Makerspace only provides you with around 10 fonts that are free. So when you want to type up a word or group of words in different fonts, you can design it on Canva, download it, upload it to the Cricut Makerspace, and have the perfect design!

2. There are a ton of "clip art" style images that you can add to your designs. You simply search for images and choose one of the free options. There are tons of choices! If you find an image you like that costs money, it's usually only a dollar.

3. You can upload your own images as well! Simply search for the image you want on any search engine and upload it into Canva. That way, you get exactly what you want without having to fork over any cash.

4. Canva saves all of your designs and uploaded images. If you're like me, you get in such a hurry to finish a project that you forget to save them before exiting! Canva saves every design and image so you can go back to it any time you need it. That means, you can save designs and come back to edit them anytime you want! No recreating. No redesigning. No wasted time.

5. You can share designs with members of your "team." Anyone else who has Canva can be added to your team and images can be edited and shared instantly! Group projects have never been easier.

Those are just a few of the amazing things Canva can do! Of course, there are many other uses for Canva that don't involve your Cricut. I make every flyer, post card, Pinterest pin, and blog photo on Canva. So stop wasting money and start designing like a champ!
